One sick individual has provided radical progressive communist democrats and their propagandists in the mainstream media with a godsend gift – an alleged white supremacist extremist committing a horrific mass murder that will endlessly dominate the news cycle and justify law enforcement crackdowns on conservatives.
10 dead in Buffalo supermarket attack police call hate crime
A white 18-year-old wearing military gear and livestreaming with a helmet camera opened fire with a rifle at a supermarket in Buffalo, killing 10 people and wounding three others Saturday in what authorities described as “racially motived violent extremism.”
Police said he shot 11 Black and two white victims before surrendering to authorities in a rampage he broadcast live on the streaming platform Twitch.
Later, he appeared before a judge in a paper medical gown and was arraigned on a murder charge.
“It is my sincere hope that this individual, this white supremacist who just perpetrated a hate crime on an innocent community, will spend the rest of his days behind bars. And heaven help him in the next world as well,” said Gov. Kathy Hochul, speaking near the scene of the attack.
The massacre sent shockwaves through an unsettled nation gripped with racial tensions, gun violence and a spate of hate crimes. In the day prior to the shooting, Dallas police said they were investigating a series of shootings in Koreatown as hate crimes. The Buffalo attack came just one month after another mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway train wounded 10 people.
The suspected gunman in Saturday’s attack on Tops Friendly Market was identified as [asswipe’s name redacted], of Conklin, New York, about 200 miles southeast of Buffalo. <Source>
What we can expect…
There is no doubt that we are about to witness political opportunism where race-baiters, other racial extremists, political extremists, and various instigators and exploiters will rush to the microphones and cameras to use this horrific crime to publicize and promote their self-serving agenda.
There is no doubt that this type of tragedy could be expected in a nation of 335 million individuals, including the mentally ill, criminals, crazies, and terrorists. Some of whom are affected by grossly misleading instigation from the mainstream media and social media postings.
There is no doubt that any form of gun control legislation could NOT have prevented this tragedy.
So how do progressives explain this?
17 People Shot, 10 In Custody From Water Street Shooting
The Water Street and Old World Third Street bar districts could face another violent summer if Friday’s post-Milwaukee Bucks game activity is any indicator.
The Milwaukee Police Department reports 21 people were shot across three different incidents. All of the victims are expected to survive.
The biggest incident occurred at 11:09 p.m on the 1100 block of N. Water St., the south end of the bar district. MPD reports 17 people were shot. Ten people were taken into police custody from the incident and nine firearms were recovered. Victims ages ranged from 15 to 47.
A triple shooting occurred at 9:12 p.m. on the 1100 block of N. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., the north end of the Old World Third Street bar district. “The victims were a 29-year-old male, a 16-year-old female, and a 26-year-old male. There was a 19-year-old male taken into custody in connection with this incident,” said MPD in a statement.
Prior to the 17-victim incident, a single-victim shooting took place on the 1100 block of N. Water St. A 20-year-old male was taken to an area hospital. MPD did not report any arrests.
MPD sends extra officers to the area on busy evenings as part of its Code Red initiative.
The incidents all occurred in the blocks immediately east of Fiserv Forum and the Deer District entertainment complex. The Bucks hosted a sellout crowd inside the arena and planned to allow up to 11,000 people to watch the game outside the arena. The two bar districts also drew large crowds as a result of the game and warm weather. <Source>
I know you can't excuse bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior but violence seems endemic and unnoticed in the inner cities governed by progressive communist democrats.
We should not hold law-abiding individuals or others with a shared identity responsible for this terrible tragedy. However, we need to hold the media accountable for the endless repetition and exploitation of this horrific event that may trigger similar copycat events or present an opportunity for the self-aggrandizement of a perpetrator.
This is a reminder that we should actively shun the politicians and the media’s talking heads who may attempt to blame anyone other than the perpetrator for this wanton act of violence.
Certain individuals cannot be fixed, weapons eliminated, or crimes prevented – it is all part of life’s fabric of risk.
We are so screwed.
