  1. I hope this is the right place for this. I did a search and didn't see a post about it anywhere else on here. This is a popular California festival in a small town near the Bay Area and this guy opened fire at it yesterday. Apparently he had possible racist motives based on his social media posts. Also, he was using an AK-47 which he purchased legally in Nevada. For those not in this state, we have some of the strictest gun laws of any state, I believe. The most recent law is that we have to have a background check run to even purchase ammo. My husband recently purchased an old rifle in Oregon but we did it legally and he had to have it shipped to a gun store here so they could do his background check. But there are so many people who can literally just go over the border to Mexico or Nevada and purchase what they want and bring it back. I am a gun owner but there is NO REASON anyone needs this kind of assault rifle!! I think it's ridiculous that you can buy them legally. I just don't get it! https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/gilroy-garlic-festival-gunman-referenced-might-right-manifesto-shortly-shooting-n1035781 Here is another article I just found. The guy cut through a fence to get into the park. Someone asked why he was shooting and he responded, "Because I'm really angry." https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-07-29/gilroy-garlic-festival
  2. Another mass shooting today, this time at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a former resident of the city, I have passed by the area many times. There's a lot of Synagogues in the area. This shooting is closer to home for me than any other shooting except Virginia Tech. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46002549 https://pittsburgh.cbslocal.com/2018/10/27/heavy-police-presence-near-synagogue-in-squirrel-hill/

    Walmart Shooting in CO

    http://www.denverpost.com/2017/11/01/thornton-shooting-walmart/ Please tell me this is fake news.
  6. I can't even imagine how terrified those poor people had to be. Is it bad my first thought after reading this was "please let this be a white, Christian male? Because otherwise you know the Orange Menace will use it to fuel his anti-brown-people agenda. Plus, this will knock Puerto Rico even further from the news, which is the last thing they need. Too much bad stuff going on in the world. At least 20 dead, 100 injured at shooting on Las Vegas Strip, police say Police arrived at the Las Vegas Strip, responding to reports of an active shooter in the area Oct. 2. Police arrived at the Las Vegas Strip, responding to reports of an active shooter in the area Oct. 2. (The Washington Post) Police arrived at the Las Vegas Strip, responding to reports of an active shooter in the area Oct. 2. (The Washington Post) A gunman opened fire on concertgoers at a country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, killing at least 20 people and injuring “in excess of 100″ others before dying during a standoff with police, authorities said. Witnesses told the Associated Press that the gunshots were fired from the upper floors of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino around 10 p.m. local time. Police said they confronted the gunman shortly after on the hotel’s 32nd floor. Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said police believe the suspect, a local resident, was a “lone wolf” who acted on his own. He but did not identify the gunman and declined to give further details about him. The shooting occurred at the end of the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a three-day country music concert held over the weekend that reportedly drew 30,000 attendees. The concert grounds are adjacent to Mandalay Bay. The shots began as Jason Aldean, one of the final performers, was playing. Lombardo said authorities were searching for a woman named Marilou Danley who was said to be the gunman’s “traveling companion.” The sheriff said authorities were also looking for two cars, a Hundai Tuscon and a Chrysler Pacifica Touring, both with Nevada plates. He called on witnesses to turn over “any cellphone video” that might assist authorities. The FBI is also involved in the investigation. “It’s a devastating time,” Lombardo said at a news conference early Monday morning. “We have responded to the scene, and we’re doing the best we can to provide safety to the survivors.” A witness to the shooting, Ivetta Saldana, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Aldean was rushed off stage when the shots rang out. “It was a horror show,” she said. “People were standing around, then they hit the floor.” Videos posted to Twitter from people claiming to be witnesses showed people screaming and running for cover amid the sound of gunshots. The shooting continued intermittently for more than five minutes, according to the Associated Press. “The gunfire never ended, it seemed like,” concert attendee Rachel Dekerf told CNN. “It just went on and on and on.” Police converged on the area and blocked off roads. Some officers could be seen taking cover behind squad cars as other officers ran into the casino, the Associated Press reported. Morning Mix newsletter Stories that will be the talk of the morning. About 50 people were taken to University Medical Center, a spokeswoman said in an email to The Washington Post. Two of the patients died, and several are in critical condition, she said. Among the more than 100 injured was an officer with the Bakersfield Police Department in Southern California, who was taken to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, according to a news statement. Several of the department’s officers were off-duty and attending the concert when the gunfire erupted. Multiple flights bound for the McCarran International Airport were diverted because of the shooting, the airport tweeted. All other planes were temporarily grounded, with a few flights resuming Monday morning. The Route 91 Harvest Festival has been held for the past four years on a 15-acre lot across an intersection from Mandalay Bay. The concert’s main stage is situated near the northeastern side of the gold-colored hotel-casino, which towers more than 400 feet above the Strip. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/10/02/police-shut-down-part-of-las-vegas-strip-due-to-shooting/?utm_term=.799f41745e7c
  7. I heard about the shooting in Olathe yesterday. 1 dead, 2 wounded A man shot at middle eastern looking people in suburban KC. Turns out the men that looked middle eastern were engineers from Garmin and originally from India. In a part of this that seems to rival Florida Man - the guy crossed over into Missouri and told his story to the bartender at Applebees. http://www.kansascity.com/news/local/crime/article134459444.html The original article for the shooting seems to be at the same link.
  8. Full disclosure: I haven't read this article yet. I can't bring myself to do it yet. But here it is. http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSKBN12H1S2?utm_campaign=trueAnthem:+Trending+Content&utm_content=580520e004d3017faae26cdc&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=Facebook Feel free to discuss. I will read the article and jump in, eventually!
  9. "A lone gunman executed a revered Queens imam and his friend as the pair walked home from Saturday prayers, blasting each in the back of the head without a word, officials said. Mosque leader Maulama Akonjee and friend Thara Uddin were dressed in Muslim garb when the killer “approached from behind and shot” from point-blank range, said NYPD Deputy Inspector Henry Sautner of the Queens South Detective Bureau." More at the Link. This is so sad. My heart goes out to their families, Mosque members and community. I hope they find the sick individual who did this!

    Christina Grimmie Shot Dead

    Christina Grimmie was a singer. She became famous on YouTube before entering The Voice and coming third. She opened a show in Orlando, with the band Before You Exit performing the main show. They all signed autographs afterwards. In the midst of this, a guy armed with two guns opened fire on Christina, who sadly died of her injuries in hospital. A person who attended the concert said that security guards merely looked in her purse, no patting down or anything. Christina's brother tackled the shooter to the ground. Shooter then shot himself dead. Nobody else was hurt. Police are trying to discover the shooter's identity. I am so fucking glad I live in a country where guns are not easily available. This shooting may not receive major coverage because Christina wasn't hugely famous, nor was it a mass shooting, but that shouldn't matter. It's a fucking waste. Something is wrong with humanity.
  11. The Feds are going to go for the death penalty in the case of Dlyann Roof; cnn.com/2016/05/24/us/dylann-roof-death-penalty/index.html I'm having mixed feelings about this. I don't blame the state or any of the families of the victims for wanting to fry that no good son of a bitch. But I think making him serve the rest of his life in prison - perhaps another 60 or 70 years - would be more of a punishment for him then simply executing him. Plus I worry that it'll create a martyr for the reich wingers out there who think shooting up a House of God is acceptable conduct.
  12. Luckily, this got thwarted before it got worse. He said he was a prophet of God and also a pedophile. It's embarrassing he was from Tennessee. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/03/28/u-s-capitol-shooting-gunman-captured-officer-injured.html

  14. So it would seem there is some nut who is an "active Shooter" at the planned parenthood in Colorado Springs. Seems to be a rather fluid situation but takes it back to the original topic of how INSANE people who claim to be Pro-Life can be. If this is a case of yet another Nut Job who feels that he is saving the fertilized eggs I would love to understand the logic behind killing actual people to further his Pro-Life agenda. Why? Someone please explain to me how the heck you can be both Pro-Life and Pro-Death Penalty at the same time?? How liberating it must be to live a life completely devoid of logic. Planned Parenthood IS not just a "Baby Killing Factory" Why oh why must people refuse to educate themselves prior to taking a stand on something that they clearly do not understand... What the actually do: Abortion is a measly 3% of what they do there. 16% of what they do is Cancer Screening and prevention. 35% is CONTRACEPTION, you know that thing that you can do to the heathens that will stop them from needing an Abortion in the first place. I don't care what religion you belong to, there are so VERY few women who just leave the number of children that they have up to God's will. If that were the case you would see families with WAY more than 5 or 6 kids. Fertility issues my ass, more like you went for it and now that you are knee deep in diapers you suddenly are rethinking your whole "his will" stance. Don't get me wrong, I am with you, I am a big fan of controlling the number of mini me's I plan on setting on the world. Just drop the crap and let people be!! Leave families to decide what their family should look like and go home and make the family that you have always wanted, No kids, 12 cats whatever your deal is, it's all good. If your God is so Big and Scary with SEVERE wrath then leave it to him to deal with the sinners, I mean an eternity of suffering in Hell seems worse than anything that your micro brain can dream up. NOTE: Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, please forgive my Noobishness and move or delete or take away my weekly jellybean.

    CT School shooting

    Just wanted to start the thread since i didn't see one. A Newtown, CT elementary school has killed at least a dozen people, perhaps as many as 27 people, half reported to be children. News is still trickling, but if you pray, please pray, if you can offer positive thoughts, please do so, for peace and comfort for these families and this tiny New England town.

  22. I wonder if we will see more home church problems in the future? Man accused of killing wife, wounding 2 pastors MIKE SCHNEIDER Published: Sep 18, 2011 5:21 PM LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Derrick Foster was kneeling in prayer when the gunman burst through the front door of Greater Faith Christian Center Church. He heard shooting, then screams. A former church member is accused of critically wounding the church's pastor and associate pastor as close to 20 people prayed between Sunday services. Authorities and relatives said Jeremiah Fogle shot his wife to death at his house, where he had started his own church, before continuing the rampage a block away at Greater Faith. Foster, a teacher in the ministry, got up and saw the man near the pulpit, turning around with the gun in his hand. "The first thing in my mind was, 'I have to take this gun away,'" he said. The Polk County sheriff's office said Foster and another man tackled the gunman and one of the church members struck the suspect in the head with a microphone stand. "He had a great grip on the gun," Foster said. "My plan was, as soon as he hit the floor, it would cause him to drop it. But he didn't drop it." He said it took three or four minutes of struggling with the gunman before he finally wrested the weapon away. The gunman had six live rounds in his pocket. "He was prepared to shoot even more," Sheriff Grady Judd said, adding that the people who tackled him "were really heroes." Pastor William Boss and associate pastor Carl Stewart were shot from behind, authorities said. Boss, who was shot in the head, and Stewart, shot three times in the back and ear, were in critical condition Sunday. No one else at the church was hurt. "Of all the places you should be safe, you should be safe in a house of worship," Judd said. "Especially on a Sunday morning." As deputies began investigating, a church member advised that they check on Fogle's wife, who lived with him a block away in a neighborhood of mobile homes, humble houses and industrial shops. Investigators and relatives say 56-year-old Theresa Fogle was found slain inside, apparently killed before her husband went to the church. "We don't know exactly why he went in to this mad rage," Judd said. Officials said Jeremiah Fogle would be charged with murder and could face additional charges. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. Theresa Fogle's sister Maria Beauford said the couple married in 2002 and ran a transportation business together. They had been members of Greater Faith Christian Center Church, where the shootings happened, but had started their own ministry out of their house and regularly hosted Sunday services, Beauford said. Beauford said she had never known Jeremiah Fogle to be violent toward her sister. He had been sick over the past year and had back surgery, and Theresa Fogle nursed him back to health, Beauford said. She said her brother-in-law was always smiling at family gatherings. "We have no idea what his motive was," she said. "We just have no idea." Jeremiah Fogle's older brother, Collis Fogle Jr., said that the couple seemed to have gotten along well. "It's so sad," he said. "I've been trying to call to figure out what went wrong." Neighbors said they often saw Fogle outside with his wife, mowing the lawn and pulling weeds. "They would cut up and laugh," Doreen Carroll, who lives a couple of blocks away, told The Ledger of Lakeland (http://bit.ly/rdCwfa). Several police cars and police tape blocked off the red-brick church and the street in front. Boss, the pastor, is a caring leader who has "a gift from God to speak," said Reese King, a friend of Boss and the sports director at a local radio station. ___ Associated Press writer Christine Armario contributed to this report from Miami.
  23. I'm sure that Doug Phillips would not approve. The proper thing would have been to wait for some men to heroically put the women and children first, no doubt. http://talkaboutequality.wordpress.com/ ... ly-happen/
