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?


Why should we have 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?" The answer is that farkers like you keep getting away in any attempt to keep do anything about it. If you just stay out of the way, you wouldn't have to hear about it, and maybe, just maybe, we can start advancing towards a more peaceful nation.

Or you can be a coont about the whole thing. I'm sure that will help.

It's the possibility this person was randomly targeting people he didn't know that makes this a little more newsworthy than your average shooting.

Starve supply a bit, and raise the prices on them. Cheap available guns are a blight on poor neighborhoods.


Maryland has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country.  It obviously worked very well as evidenced by this example.  I'm guessing this is a love triangle, which was going to end badly no matter what.

I remember a shirt I saw at some Baltimore harcore show back in the early 00's.  In nice friendly letters on the front it said, "Welcome to Baltimore!"

The back had an AK47 with "Now get down motherfarker!"

Next Fark party I'll do a plane ticket to Baltimore, kinda miss that place.  Need some crabs.

Because in about every other relatively stable country in the world, multiple people being shot and murdered in a public place would be bigger news than a Fark headline.

It's also the top result on Google News, so it's not just Fark.  But maybe that's just a sign of the liberal lamestream media trying to force slippery slope gun reform on us so we can be disarmed and Obama and FEMA can finally put their police state plan into action.

Confabulat: 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.


Omg, not a mall. Stop the presses.

I'm betting that at least one of the victims was a mall employee.
People get killed at their workplaces all the time. Especially if we go with the botched robbery theory.

My money is on office (err, food court) love triangle though.

Surprise, places with a lot of people have more shootings.

walktoanarcade: Gwendolyn: She safe. Thank god.

Thank goodness.

Fark it, stories like this make me wish for technology that physically prohibits the unlawful carrying of a weapon into a public place.

What I want are devices that can detect and incapacitate individuals that are unauthorized carriers; through TV commeercials and public awareness programs, people will learn that if they pull a weapon near one of the not-yet-invented devices, the device will shoot out a web-like foam, incapacitating the would-be killer until police or security arrives.

My way allows freedom and provides reality based results.

Don't want to be "webbed?"  Don't pull a gun in a public place.


Would not have done a bit of good in he theatre shooting or the Major Hassan shooting and probably a dozen other mass shootings. Not only were they lawful but one was an retired police chief and the other active duty Army.

Product demonstrations at the mall are fun. I love going to the mall and munching on those little cups of candied nuts or those crackers with salted pasty shiat on them. The gun manufacturers are no different in this respect. They need to show people how good their products are and these are the best advertisements for their product anyone could ever come up with. They'll boost their sales quite a bit from this.

They always do.

I live near by.  It's way, way to early to say what is going on.  It could be gang related, there are gangs in Columbia, although not many.  It could come out of Baltimore, although it's more likely a DC Suburb for Columbia.  Baltimore's stuff tend to migrate along the 95 corridor, and Columbia is west of Baltimore.  Maryland has really strict concealed carry laws, so if the initial report was correct about a victim being found with a gun and ammunition, it's most likely a off duty cop.  They do carry in Maryland, except in DC.  If it was Western Maryland or the Eastern Shore, you're more likely to find concealed carry permits in those area.  Columbia is actually fairly liberal, and they are pro-gun control.  Odds are it's a domestic dispute of some kind, potentially involving a cop.  Probably not random.  Most of the really violent crime is in the City and it's closely surrounding suburbs.  Columbia is a good 20+ minutes from western Baltimore City, if not closer to 45 with traffic, and the Baltimore Gangs tend to keep to their own turf.  Baltimore Gangs are also kind of peculiar due to Baltimore being a heroin city.  The normal gang rules don't apply, and you'll often get the different bloods and crips fighting themselves, each other, and we have a strong MS-13 presence to boot.  Past the inner harbor in Baltimore, areas around Johns Hopkins, University Hospital, Roland Park, and one or two other well to do areas it's pretty much a free fire zone at it's worse during the warmer months.

You scared me, Subby. I thought for a moment you meant re-set the clocks literally.

Daylight Saving Time always kills a few people when the clocks Spring forward, although these may be more than compensated for by fewer deaths when they Fall back. I think we should stop the craziness and ban farking around with the clocks. Same time year round.

Farking around with guns is a pretty obvious no-no also.

The reason why so many mass shooters and suicide bombers are drawn from the white yuppie classes is that unlaid entitled young white men are the douchebag hipsters of the murder world. Black youths mostly shoot each other or are jailed for a few grams of pot or crack before they kill. Entitled young white men can get away with murder both literally and figuratively because they come from good families who are well-to-do.

They can stockpile guns and ammo to their heart's content and nobody dares to ask any questions because the precious snowflakes might get upset. Overwhelmingly male, overwhelmingly white,  overwhelmingly  between 16 and 25, overwhelmingly  privileged, overwhelmingly  narcissistic, overwhelmingly  psychopathic, overwhelmingly  smart-ass, nerdy, geeky, obsessive compulsive, and right wing. These are the assasins, the suicide bombers, the hipsters, the revolutionaries. It's not the poor, the minoritites, and the marginalized who do these things. It's guyz with White People Problems.
