Gyrfalcon: Already trying to guess a motive!

"Sounds like it was planned!"


Well, that it does. Awful hard to have a spontaneous massacre like that. "Oh hey, I just realized I have a farkton of weapons on me when I got to the theater. What the hell, I think I'll use 'em!"
 
2012-07-20 05:15:25 AM  

Gyrfalcon: Great, the news reporters are already calling this "domestic terrorism."

One in custody.


I'm guessing then that the suspects are swarthy, possible Mooslim types. White guys don't get called terrorists off the bat, if at all. Usually they're "mentally ill".

Shut down everyrhing!


They already did. They were trying to find somebody to turn the lights back on earlier.

Relatively Obscure: Greywar: lol. private security guard is causing problems for the perimeter cops. Moron.

Oh, cut him some slack.


No. Welcome to Fark.

Listening to the cops talk, I swear to god I could hear someone crying in the background of one of the radio calls. kinda heart wrenching. That person I feel for.

Some mall cop getting in the way of cops? Not so much.

Gyrfalcon: Greywar: They just lost all the lights in the parking lot....on a timer...or part of something batman villain like?

If there's another shooter outstanding, they'll cut the lights so he can't see any potential targets. I saw the live feed a moment ago and was thinking "TURN OFF THE LIGHTS!!!"


Double edged sword, very risky move. Basically you are limiting the vision of all potential targets (and thus hampering their ability to navigate to better ground) on the chance the shooter didn't come prepared (at a nighttime-level darkness attack) with night vision or some sort of light compensation. There isn't really a right answer with this call, perfectly 50/50

did you strike terror in his heart?
did you make him fear the night?

it's time for gotham to get the hero it thinks it deserves.
 
2012-07-20 05:16:58 AM  
Any idea on who was targeted?
 
2012-07-20 05:17:10 AM  

Dr. Mojo PhD: It's either radical Muslims, radical anti-Muslims, extremist Christians, extremist Jews, militant atheists, white supremacists, black supremacists, gangs, militia members, right-wing extremists, left-wing extremists, a lone nut, or several lone nuts who decided not to be lonely any more.

There, all the bases are covered.

But if it's radical centrists, boy will I have egg on my face.


Almost, but you conspicuously left out climate scientists didn't you?

I don't know. What if he's from an Indian reservation, would it still be domestic?

Ishkur: Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck et. al. must be taken to task one of these days for the hateful rhetoric they spew day after day. There are a lot of damaged people with mental disorders who depend on these pundits to validate their paranoid insecurities, and I wouldn't put it past this gunman that, due to the whole Bane/Bain coverage this week, he was convinced that the movie was an evil liberal socialist propaganda film and he needed to save people from its corrupting influence.


Listen. I'm going to let you in on a little secret here. Crazy people are crazy. If you feed their craziness, are you more likely to set off lots of crazy people? Sure.

But here's the gimmick about crazy people. The reason they're crazy is because shiat that would not normally set a person off sets them off. Yeah, maybe it's Limbaugh. Or maybe it's the fact that 4-corner simultaneous day earth is not taught to educated stupid kids, or because Queen Elizabeth II is a reptilian, or chemtrails, or their tea wasn't hot enough, or their tea was just right.

They're farking crazy. It's what they do.

Speculation at this point doesn't help anything. You know why? Your speculation that it was [PET VILLAIN HERE] could set off another crazy person to go on some lunatic rampage of "revenge" because of accusations just as spurious and possibly as untruthfully as BANE = BAIN and then the next thing you know you have some twenty-something pharma-resistant guy who thinks his olanzapine/clonapine cocktail is a polite suggestion deciding that his daddy's thirty-ought is looking like a real good solution to all the problems the voices in his head keep telling him about.

Not. Helping.

TommyymmoT: Gyrfalcon: Great, the news reporters are already calling this "domestic terrorism."

The biggest "terrorists", in the true sense of the word, ARE the news reporters.


Don't get me wrong, I think the news media absolutely over-sensationalizes things to make it seem like we're in danger and we need to watch them to be safe... but I'd still wager that the biggest terrorists are the actual guys blowing stuff up and shooting people... and the close second would be the pussies who let those few jagoffs terrorize them to the point they change their day to day habits and policies because of them. If we want terrorism to stop, the best way is to not be so reactionary when it happens.

Because my feelings are hurt? I just think you're being hard on the guy when the only thing you know is what someone blurted over a radio. He may well have been perfectly helpful for everything but that.

The best thing would be to not start calling this "domestic terrorism" even before the shooter(s) are in custody.

Theatre 9 got hit, they're taking pics of other people in theatres as possible witnesses. Juveniles witnessed the shooter, too scared to tell parents. Cops are going to pick them up. LOL "We're here for your kids on a possible terrorism incident"....

MeinRS6: Gyrfalcon: Fluorescent Testicle: Gyrfalcon: So does this prove Limbonehead right or wrong?

I'm worried that this was caused by Limbaugh's comments.

So was I. I wasn't kidding.

Right. That's farking brilliant.

Kinda like when Palin caused the shooting in AZ. At least according to morons on Fark.

Get a grip.


Like it or not, Rush has a body count. Even if you just take the guy who lay in wait and ambushed and killed 6 police officers, who directly claimed he did it because of something he heard on Rush, its still 6 bodies too many. There are lots more questionable incidents you could argue either way, but you can't do anything but lay that one on Limbaugh's doorstep.
Fact is, people like the nutcase in AZ were crazy as a bag of cats, but what directed his anger was derp from far right extremists.

Police spokesman now saying only one known gunman. 14 dead, 50 injured (estimate).

Suspect in custody claims he has explosives at his residence & EOD is there now.

Joking aside, I was in a theater shooting once. It was during Friday the 13th part VII: Jason Goes to Hell. The whole theater was hot-boxed (Alexandria on Geary in San Francisco) EVERYONE was talking, you could barely hear the farking movie.

The second credits started to roll, some guy stood up and yelled "Man, that shiat SUCKED" and fired at the screen. EVERYONE screamed and broke out the side door. Me and my buddy just hit the floor and looked at each other in sheer terror. Cops were there in minutes, don't think they ever caught the guy..

My buddy worked at that theater for years after. They never even bothered to repair the screen so I saw Friday (ice cube) for free like 12 times with an authentic bullet hole in the screen.

/was scary as shiat
//thought I was going to be Jason's final victim
 
2012-07-20 05:23:32 AM  
kinda sounds like they found an accomplice who backed out to me, from the officer reporting live now. says they found a guy in a car wearing a gas mask with a rifle and a handgun. another firearm was found inside the theatre

Ishkur: TheNyquilKid: Gyrfalcon: So does this prove Limbonehead right or wrong?
My initial thought was/is this is related to his insane conspiracy theory.

I know the information is spotty at this point, but I'm willing to bet this is Byron Williams all over again.

Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck et. al. must be taken to task one of these days for the hateful rhetoric they spew day after day. There are a lot of damaged people with mental disorders who depend on these pundits to validate their paranoid insecurities, and I wouldn't put it past this gunman that, due to the whole Bane/Bain coverage this week, he was convinced that the movie was an evil liberal socialist propaganda film and he needed to save people from its corrupting influence.

But I'll wait until more certain information comes out before passing judgment.


Oh for the love of GOD people, can NOTHING happen that someone doesnt try and blame "the other side" for as illogically as possible as fast as possible?

Be ashamed of yourselves. No one is keeping score, therefore, there is no need to score points for your side as early as possible.
