Mostly referring back to Redking's:

Heavyset white male... Was taken injured but alive, because of course he was -- he's white.

The BLM message being that if he were black he wouldn't have been taken alive.
Convince me otherwise, bro.

You made the claim, you prove it.

In any case it would be a battle of critical thinking and I refuse to fight an unarmed individual.

There's a nice thread for discussing these issues.  Don't worry about the fair-and-balanced name, people do occasionally go there for discussion occasionally.  It's also a fine place for salt, though.

I've linked back a little to discussion of the man shot in his apartment, since you brought it up.

But for real though light-skinned people don't get called terrorists in the US unless it turns out they are from the wrong part of the world or follow the wrong religion. The wrong kind of light skin and/or God, you see. They always wait to check first.

Media definition of domestic terrorist = Brown person who cheated his way into citizenship somehow.

I totally agree there.  This was domestic terrorism, and yet Trump and even Fake News are going to call it anything but.

This is just as sad as saying "there's good people on both sides". Whistle past that particular fucking graveyard all you want. I would love to find some statistics, because I will bet you some good damn money that white active shooters have a much higher survival rate (not counting the ones who suicide) than active shooters of other races.

In any case, it's not germane to the core story, which is yet another mass shooting by a right-wing nutjob with an AR-15. Apparently the shooter wasn't a Trump supporter because Trump had Jews among his advisors.

Never mind that Trump and his advisors have been known to push antisemitic news and memes.

True, but for this guy in particular, it was a no-go.

Wasn't Trump's first statement about it something about it being acts of terror, or terror causing acts or something? I mean he walked it back within an hour to Democrats plotting to ruin his sterling reputation, but still.

Goygunner.

EDIT: Death toll up to 11. No word on whether that includes the 3 officers shot, and/or their condition.

If it weren't for his son in law, I'm sure Trump would be blaming the victims right now.
