Shooting in El Paso, TX. 18 dead...

These copy cat attention whores are getting out of control.

LINK

UPDATE: 1:06 p.m. – An officers on the scene tell KTSM that 18 people are dead at the scene. An updated number of injured has not been given by EPPD. We are waiting to confirm from an El Paso Police spokesperson.

I will not be surprised if the Garlic Shooter doesn't fit the narrative, so the media is ignoring him.

Most of the (very early at this point) stories I've read call attention to the WalMart shooting in MS several days ago... which makes sense, since both shootings were at a WalMart. But none of the stories mentioned the Garlic Festival shooting.

This kid in El Paso had a Kalishnikov (no visible extra mags... strangely).

Yep, at least he had eye & ear pro. Sad. Prayers to the fallen.

I read his manifesto--
1. It's them damned Mescans
2. Politicians of both parties suck
3. Corporations killing the country
4. He's against race-mixing
5. He's spun this into an honorable attack to preserve his country and "my beloved Texas" before the Democrat open-borders-immigration master plan which relies on complicit Republicans makes Texas a blue-state.
6. He held these views before Trump's election.
7. Pollution.

He's all over the map, topic-wise.

But the reporters are already using terms like "Trump-supporting" and "White nationalist." Now a word from our sponsor...

In other words, he's a rambling idiot who decided to commit mass murder and kill innocent people to make himself feel important. I wonder how many news outlets are going to let *that truth* out? Probably none.

May those who were needlessly murdered rest in peace and may their families find peace some how.

There was a manifesto on my FB feed but the poster said it was later debunked... I am adding that it may not be the same one

Convenience? It really doesn't matter since the media will write one for him anyway.

Why are they (more and more) always children or near children?

Spoiled, attention seeking, blinders wearing, no concept of the real world, likely over medicated, under-parented, under socialized (in reality where it matters) undisciplined children.

If they live they should be executed and their names forgotten, but never the true cause for why they did what they did.

And no matter if they live or die, their parent's, or whatever sorry excuse for humans had that role should share their fate.

Oh, and fucks the MSM and libs who will use this to further their goals.

Maybe in their sick, twisted minds they think they're in a first-person shooter game.

Not blaming games, but their tenuous grip on reality may conjoin the two.
