Farkin_Crazy: freddyV: Farkin_Crazy: genner: I used to go to this mall fairly regularly. Good thing I left WI behind.

Not so CSB.

When the Omaha mall shooter killed 8, I had just left Crossroads Mall. I wasn't even to my car when people came running out screaming.

Shook me and my co-worker to the core.

I was at that mall that day.
Was already back at my hotel when it happened.
I count myself lucky

I said Crossroads. Ugh.

It was Westroads. My office was less than 3 blocks away.


I was staying at the Marriott near there.
Was there taking a relative to the children's hospital

lolmao500: AmbassadorBooze: Why are there people at a mall?  We are in a pandemic.  All people, especially the non essential, should be locked the fark down.  Anybody out and about at a mall today is a trumpet, and thus only trumpers can be shot at a mall.  Doesn't even sound like a problem.

Trumpers get shot at a mall during a pandemic for 3 reasons :

- they dont believe in pandemics
- they dont believe in gun control
- they dont believe in universal health care

Theres 3 reasons right there they deserve it. Get shot at a mall because you're a farking idiot, who voted against gun control and now gonna go bankrupt paying for your gunshot wounds for the next decade.

KARMA, I LOVE IT. Too bad it aint happening more.


People on stretchers being wheeled out were active and talking.
Asking if the guns were OK.

orezona: Shooter still at large? Sounds like the cops are sweeping the location still. There may still be bodies to find...


I'm sure the cops waved him off and let him nonchalantly stroll out of the scene with his rifle by now, just like they did in Kenosha.
 
2020-11-20 5:36:17 PM  

12349876: Already been a couple shooting at my city's mall since COVID,.  though of the targeted variety.


So there was a proposal at the shooting range?
 
2020-11-20 5:36:41 PM  

roc6783: My cousin is fine, but he was in the mall on break when it happened. He doesn't know any details, though.


Good to hear. Is he trapped inside?  Sounds like a lot of employees pulled down the gates and retreated to store rooms.

SurfaceTension: Not just active, but "very active"


#BREAKING A police dispatcher says officers are responding to "a very active situation" at a suburban Milwaukee mall. https://t.co/6ZYcqnt7Lj
- FOX19 NOW (@FOX19) November 20, 2020


Fake news. Have seen Wisconsinites. None of them could be called "very active".
 
2020-11-20 5:39:01 PM  
I've been listening to the Milwaukee AM news station WTMJ since about 3:30 when I was driving by the mall.

The solid information is
-- Wauwatosa mayor says several shot, none fatal
-- The radio station has been playing calls from witnesses and interviews from their associated TV news channel
-- Witnesses say they were in or near Macy's lower level, heard shots, then people scattered out the doors
-- Have not heard any eyewitnesses to shooting, just earwitnesses
-- Radio says a "source with good law enforcement contacts" says seven shot
-- Witnesses have seen multiple people being wheeled out on gurneys
-- One mall employee witness on the radio said people on gurneys had sheets over their heads. That is the single suggestion of fatalities. The mayor's statement contradicts it.
-- I saw at least five ambulances leaving mall headed towards big nearby Froedtert hospital

Ha!  This is doubly funny to me because my nickname in high school (which was before said movie) was Newt.

I wish I could edit my posts.  I am a terrible self-proofer, but eventually I spot them eventually. :)
 
2020-11-20 5:42:52 PM  

farkingbubbler: I read there's supposed to be a "MAGA rally" Satirday 11/21 at or near said mall (which is down the road from me at the moment).  Wonder if related?

/obvious?


Trump and Trumpers wouldn't get within three miles of Mayfair.  If there was a rally it's at Brookfield Square about five miles away.
 
2020-11-20 5:42:56 PM  

snarfyboy: Azlefty: Well Kenosha shooter Kyle Rittenhouse got out on bail today

possibly related, but more likely related to the protests in Tosa. This is the mall where Alvin Cole was shot.



There is zero chance that this is related to Alvin Cole. Alvin Cole was an idiot kid showing off his stolen gun (at the same mall). The protests about his death were misguided but not violent or threatening in any way.

You don't want that. Posting a retraction/correction later is sufficient.

If we could edit our posts, people would maliciously or innocently change what they typed, AFTER triggering responses.

It would be confusing like when a headline or link is corrected, but about 1M times worse.
 
2020-11-20 5:47:46 PM  

lincoln65: Dunno why they need to send the cops out to deal with a tiny issue like this. I doubt the shooter even kills as many people as a typical flu season.

Just deal with it, we can't shut the mall down for something so minor


Good thing too, since we just defunded the police department.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but just because you feel this way doesn't mean other people feel differently.

My point was that it's more likely that than the news of Kyle Rittenhouse being a motivator. But as my post also said: most probably it's just another crazy person with a gun.  No political/reactionary motivation.
 
2020-11-20 5:49:52 PM  

ParallelUniverseParking: Let's hope this is not politically motivated and just a "natural American" occurence.


We don't know if it's terrorism or not, yet.
Might just be a white guy.

Oh yeah, I know why I can't - I just wish I could.  I am the king of going back and tweaking a sentence and then making it non-sensical instead of more readable.  I also really good at dropping the word "not" at critical times.

Trumpsters are getting seriously unhinged.
I had an old man try to start a fight with me the other day because I shook my head in disbelief as he drove his big ole truck the wrong way down the parking lot lane making everyone else get out of his way.
He was leaving but circled around to try and start shiat.

I remember America being filled with insufferable, loudmouthed, moronic assholes before trump. A lot of them wear red baseball hats now, but they were always there.


Now they feel aggrieved.
They are scared.
It's not going to be good.

possibly related, but more likely related to the protests in Tosa. This is the mall where Alvin Cole was shot.

Or most probably, another crazy person with a gun.

For those not from the Milwaukee area, Alvin Cole was the third guy in 5 years shot and killed by a cop who just the other day agreed to a severance package and will receive $125,000 in compensation for quietly leaving the Wauwatosa Police Department.


Alvin Cole also fired on the cop first with bodycam footage showing the cop giving the dude every out before returning fire.  The real reason the cop was severanced is because that was his second righteous kill in a few short years. Most cops go their entire careers without firing a single shot in the field.

Sheets over heads is weird, but the dead wouldn't be transported anywhere by ambulance. They would be left in place until the investigation is over.
So that's good.

The Kyle Rittenhouse comment was a joke. It seems you are unfamiliar with the concept.

His third fatal shooting. Also, the word righteous is creepy.

Ahh, thanks, that is good news. The radio reported that the Medical Examiner had not been called to the mall. Now I understand why that was big news.

No clue. He's actually my wife's cousin. Once he texted that he was safe, she didn't ask anything else. He's coming over tonight anyway so if I get anything else, I'll update.

I sometimes walk in the mall in question for exercise when it's raining. Covid is bad in Wisconsin and I'm elevated risk and I don't feel uncomfortable there.

Mask compliance is virtually 100%. I suppose the food court and restaurants may be more problematic, but I avoid them. Stores have plexiglass barriers for the cashiers. Groups of families/friends walk together but keep distance from others.

The covid risk is worst among tweens/teens who see it as the only place they can meet in groups.

You don't usually sweat the small stuff. I've been a dick to you in the past on Fark and you graciously brushed it off, not getting dragged into the mud. The Newsom thing is a petty offense. We have bigger worries.
