Mass shooting thread
It seemed to work pretty well over at the pool so I thought we could have one.
I was reading the news about the latest shooting in El Paso where I was told that this right-wing terrorist was a Trump supporter and had a manifesto. As is typical, the news wouldn't post a the text of the manifesto but were happy to highlight parts of it that fit their narrative. After some digging this site appears to have the text, a short read - https://egbertowillies.com/2019/08/03/patrick-crusius-manifesto/
Couple of things stand out to me, one is his gun talk. Forgive my lack of proper terminology, but he used a semi-auto WASR-10 AK-looking rifle and 8m3 ammo that is more likely to fragment then tumble. He seemed this combo would be more damaging?
The other thing that stood out is how we need a new name for this type of terrorist. Very similar to the shooter in NZ (he gives the shooter props) this guy doesn't like immigration and race-mixing but is also anti-corporation and very pro-environment. It seems to defy definition of left vs right.
