    It's EXTREMELY racist.

    It was basically illegal in my country to identify people by race, for a long time. No more. Even here, this news story is being repeated verbatim inclusive of the extreme racism. And likewise, if a black shooter takes out any white people, no mention of race is made at all.

    They've already forgotten about the black New York subway shooter...

    Oh it's really different. Other violent crime is done out of love.

    How do you evidence hate in one random killing, but not another? Tell us the science, please.

    Sometimes it seems like our societies are governed by 13 year old girls.

    Who could ever have foreseen that we'd actually formalise "haytz".

    Any person who engages in violent acts against civilians must be prosecuted swiftly and executed. The mastermind behind 9/11 is still alive. Tsarnaev brothers are still alive. The Australian shooter is still alive. Send a message. Civilians are off limits. You got something to say? Say to another armed man at least.

    I see you never condemned this shooter which THIS thread is about. Why am I not surprised?

    It’s impossible not to be crazy in a mass shooting. But I’m sure CNN is licking its chops hoping to find anything linking to Republicans. It’s a white male so they have that to demonize us with.

    Virtue signalling isn't required, because for grown ups it's a freaking given.

    Meantime, we CAN condemn the overt racism in the reportage of this crime. We can condemn the influence such racism has on societies we had hoped might one day evolve beyond such terrible bigotries. We can condemn the impact this racism will have on those with their own itchy trigger fingers, looking for an excuse to let rip.

    So where's your condemnation?

    They would just claim it was "antifa" or an FBI op posing anyway

    It is a horrible tragedy - the politics don't really matter as there are good and bad in all areas of political affiliations/beliefs

    He was live streaming? How modern.

    Would be ok with death penalty here.

    Of course. He's part of the Gen Z, TikTok, "can't pick your nose without streaming it" generation...

    It's New York. I'm pretty sure they haven't had a death penalty there for many years now.

    Very, no doubt.

    Once again, it's a given that we all condemn the deaths. It goes without saying.

    Meantime we condemn the actions which lead to more deaths.
