    I made the mistake of watching the video the shooter uploaded. It's not really graphic but it's awful. What a disgusting psycho.
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    I'm now seeing posts that Black Lives Matter is "at fault" for this.
    So gun control and Black Lives Matter both need to go, obviously. I saw a conservative post about how this is why racism exists.

    This is so fucking disturbing on so many levels. How did he know where these people were going to be? I've read he faxed something to their newsroom this morning stating (paraphrasing), "I'm going to have a story for you this morning", then he videoed himself shooting them, then HE posted the video to the internet. I work at a newspaper and the thought of anyone walking up to someone I know here and picking them off at close range creeps me the hell out.

    I watched the gunman's POV video and while it's not gory it's certainly very graphic. Widely available all over the net despite efforts to suppress it. What struck me most was the way he stands pointing the gun for several seconds at the reporter about 10 feet away in plain view and neither she, her interviewee or the cameraman even noticed he was there.

    I'm a Republican, but am for gun control. I hate guns. My father and 2 brothers have more guns than I have shoes....I just dont get it.

    Plus, both she and the cameraman knew him - would you necessarily suspect someone you knew was going to shoot you point blank?

    Apparently his manifesto made reference to wanting to start a race war. So, it's kind of satisfying to imagine that his roommate in hell is fellow evil fucknut Dylann Roof. Two toxic, violent, paranoid narcissists, stuck with each other for all eternity.

    Funny how we get sucked into these shooters' racial manifestos, while ignoring the big, huge, maybe TOO obvious elephant in the room?
    The common denominator, even more so than mental illness, because some are just dicks rather than delusional:
    They're ALWAYS men. Testosterone and the aggrieved male ego, where's the cure for that?

    There are just as many mentally ill women. Instead of shooting strangers, or coworkers, they kill their own kids.

    Why is that? Is it because they think they are doing them a favor against the big, bad world? or is it because they feel that they somehow own them? or just to get back at someone? It's very sad.

    I don't know the stats but I thought men commit murder many times more than woman? I took Manx's comment to mean men murder more, not that they are more mentally ill.

    They DO commit murder more than women. Much more. Manx has a good point.

    I feel so bad for the reporter's family and friends as that footage is awful and screenshots of her reaction are everywhere. Horrid.

And the reporter, cameraman, and chamber of commerce woman were so engrossed in the interview that they never even saw him walk up or wave the gun at them. They could have been armed to the teeth and wouldn't have responded in time.

    the way he just casually held up the gun right next to them, and how they were completely distracted and didn't expect anything... it's truly horrifying.
