When we live in a society that tells us we need guns to solve our problems, stop being so surprised when people use guns to solve their problems.

pho75: Fark It: And now it looks like the shooting was already over when the police arrived, where they found three bodies in or near the food court, with a gun and ammunition near one of them.

https://twitter.com/search?q=columbia%20mall&src=typd&f=realtime

From what I heard on local news, it was murder x2 followed by suicide with a shotgun. At the food court.


That's kind of my impression.  I'm thinking something domestic.

AngryDragon: Confabulat: Tadpole: This was likely a murder suicide of a bad love triangle. Jilted lover seeks revenge. This belongs on Dateline not Newsflash.

Pretty sad state of affairs when  a guy shooting up a mall isn't considered newsworthy to Americans anymore.

3 dead including the shooter isn't "shooting up a mall".  It's probably a domestic dispute or a robbery gone wrong.  Given the use of a farking shotgun, I'm guessing domestic.


It still TOOK PLACE IN A MALL. Some of you seem to think thats normal.

violentsalvation: Can we get a clock we reset whenever a subby resets the other clock prematurely?


Know what else subby does prematurely?
 
2014-01-25 01:11:10 PM

Fark It: The noise on Twitter (and I do take this with a huge grain of salt) is suggesting that the shooting happened over a pair of Air Jordans.


Sorry, if it was a different mall, the shooting was with a handgun, and the shooter ran away, then maybe. In this case it's an upscale mall and the shooter had a shotgun, a lot of ammunition, and killed himself. Does not sound spontaneous.

kombat_unit: Totally agree, poor people should not be able to defend themselves.


Exactly.  Then eventually, no more poor people and no more gun problems.

It's genius!

1.  Glad to hear your daughter is safe.
2.  I can think about 999 things I'd do if it were my daughter at that mall but posting to Fark about the situation isn't one of them.

The_Sponge: Pichu0102: Can we talk about handgun control yet, or will that cause the NRA to completely shiat themselves? At the very least, figure out some way to reduce the new guns:destroyed or unusable ratio so that we have less new guns being made than than those that are destroyed due to various reasons. Starve supply a bit, and raise the prices on them. Cheap available guns are a blight on poor neighborhoods.


How about no?  Does no work for you?


Well if some nutcase on the internet says no thats good enough for me.
 
2014-01-25 01:12:03 PM

Confabulat: serial_crusher: Murder-suicide counts as a news flash now? Should we just unplug the clock all together?

It does when it takes place in a frickin' mall, dummy.


So double murder-suicide in a crack house is just Tuesday in Chicago then?  That's very racist of you

Columbia mall is close enough, and related enough to the DC area to have high ranking government, foreign government, and various defense/security people (or at least their kids) who would regularly be at the mall on a saturday. There's no way the mall isn't locked down tighter than Ft Knox right now.

FrancoFile: LessO2: Fark It: Police said one of the victims was found near a gun and ammunition. That person was not identified. Police said the 911 call came in around 11:15 a.m. The police department is advising people to avoid the area.

Gang-related?  Columbia is relatively close to Baltimore.


Columbia, IIRC, is the definition of yuppie suburbs.

Yep.  The original 30,000-resident planned community.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbia,_Maryland


I was born in 1980 and grew up there from 1984 to 1989.  Our neighborhood was overrun with the 17 year cicada one summer.  I have mostly great memories growing up there.  I do remember my parents comparing it to Edward Scissor Hands when it came out though.

I'm off to Facebook to find and stalk the girl I played doctor with now.

I'm just commenting that Hyperventilating when murder is usually very much nonrandom is media driven HYPE. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. Just wait for the sad details of truth. Statistically this will be spouse shot spouse and lover, sometimes you pay if you play.

Gwendolyn: The Columbia Mall is a rather upscale mall.  It's the mall we go to when we want to pay $100 for a t-shirt.  Unless it's a gang  shopping for J. Crew and Ann Taylor, I doubt it.


Why would you want to pay $100 for a t-shirt?

StreetlightInTheGhetto: Yeah. Putting your fingers in your ears isn't gonna make it go away. The fact that we're so goddamn desensitized to this kinda says something.


Why should Fark greenlight links about the same crime in slightly different locations over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over on a weekly basis?
 
2014-01-25 01:20:48 PM

generallyso: It's not News it's Gunviolence.com!

Can we find something to greenlight that isn't a shooting in the US? It's getting old.


Not having shootings in the US would help.

why? Why does the location make a difference? If it took place in a poor black neighborhood, would that make it more acceptable for you?

I'm like, "Yo - that's fifty dollars for a T-shirt."
Limited edition, let's do some simple addition
Fifty dollars for a T-shirt - that's just some ignorant biatch (shiat)
I call that getting swindled and pimped (shiat)
I call that getting tricked by a business
That shirt's hella dough
And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don't
