octagon, if the shooter was in it. octagons are famously violent

Cops said they did not know his motive. My Magic 8 Ball confirms he was just another homicidal complete friggin' nutcase who accessed a firearm. Too easy anymore to get a firearm and shoot up the joint,.

I'm amazed at all the people with farking HEAD WOUNDS who are in critical condition and not in a fridge at the morgue.  I mean it happens from time to time but a lot of very very unlucky people seemed to roll a natural 20 on save vs death.
We should probably thank doctors instead of god but we won't.

The spree came to its conclusion within walking distance from my house, right along the border of Chicago and Evanston.

The person that perpetrated the shooting had a history of mental illness, and his Facebook posts (which have been taken down) indicate that he had been planning this for a few days.

"When you hear this whole story, it seems that you have a crystal ball of what hes [sic] doing next, and we all know we dont [sic] have a crystal ball where he goes next nor do we have this on any of our POD cameras," Brown told reporters. "We are responding to the scene as these crimes are happening, getting information, and again, hes [sic] going to the next while we are trying to keep up with whats [sic] happened previously."

In other news, journalists and editors don't know what a farking apostrophe is.

And - very unlikely to be a Trumper - he went to the high school that I teach at just before I got there (and I've been there for over a decade) - this was a person that had a mental break that probably has been building for years.

Wait, so your only evidence so far that he WASN'T a Trumper is that he is Black?

I'm not about to start imputing motives, but if that's all it takes for you to say "he wasn't one of us", you really need to take a look at yourself.

I read that "Reload the glock".

Slowly turning the ship of news back to guns and other shiat. Oddly, lots of other things have been happening in the US other than just in DC. Ah, how I pine for the days of exploding oil trains, Bridgegate and mass murders. Good times, good times.  Biden better have a GREAT team.

Saw The Indian Express and thought a Chicago story from a Cleveland paper.

Must be from India since it publishes the ethics code it follows:

The Digital News Publishers Association has voluntarily drawn up a Code of Ethics for its members as outlined below, which demonstrates their commitment to responsible digital publishing - even as it, in order to protect our 19 (1) (a) and other Constitutionally mandated freedoms, keeps under review and scrutinizes any developments likely to restrict the gathering and dissemination of news and current affairs or any other content.

The basic precepts of the Code of Ethics are to maintain the standards of digital publishing as well as protect and maintain the independence of journalists, content entities and publishers.

Well, the first person in the thread linked the guy to the Proud Boys, so if we are making assumptions, I would say that one is the most inane.  Unless we find out this guy was a Kid Rock fan and sported a "Don't Tread on Me" belt buckle,   I would put the odds at him being part of the alt right as quite low.
