There's been another mass shooting, this time at a Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo, NY.  A man wearing military fatigues and body armor opened fire this afternoon at the supermarket with a rifle, killing at least 10 people and wounding several others.  It's believed he was live-streaming the attack.  He was taken alive and is in custody.  The man has not yet been identified but he was described by witnesses as a white man in his late teens or early 20s.  Witnesses report that he existed the supermarket with his gun underneath his own chin, but then threw the gun down and dropped to his knees, allowing himself to be tackled by police without putting up a fight.

The suspect has been identified as an 18-year old who drove approximately 3 hours to the store and does not live in Buffalo. He shot 4 people in the parking lot (killing 3) before going inside. One of the victims is a retired police officer who was providing security at the supermarket. He shot the suspect several times but the body armor prevented any damage. The shooter then turned his rifle on the security guard and fatally shot him before continuing deeper into the store. 

CNN is already reporting this as a racially-charged shooting, although being CNN they seem to have no idea why they're saying this.  The store is located in a predominantly black neighborhood, for what that's worth, but it's unclear if the suspect even could've known that since he's not from Buffalo.

Police suspect there's some kind of online manifesto that might shed light on a motive, but they haven't found it yet.

I'm familiar with the area. It's a very black neighborhood, and people don't go there randomly or accidentally.

He believed in the "Replacement Theory". Thought the white population is being replaced by other races. He had racist words on his gun. He was live streaming it.

"Law enforcement sources told ABC News the alleged shooter's extremist beliefs may have been cultivated online and he appears to have expressed racially motivated extremist views in his online postings.

A 180-page document believed to have been posted on the internet by the suspect, is a hate-filled screed fixated on the notion of "replacement theory," a white supremacist belief that non-whites will eventually replace white people because they have higher birth rates, authorities said.

Gendron, the purported author of the document, espouses racist and anti-Semitic tropes throughout the document, which he appears to have posted before he carried out the alleged attack, according to authorities.

Among the posts that investigators are looking at include online writings in which the suspect praises other mass shooters who were also motivated by racist ideology, including South Carolina church shooter Dylann Roof, the New Zealand mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant and the Pittsburgh Tree of Life synagogue shooter Robert Gregory Bowers.

In the document, the suspect also appears to outline a plan for his alleged attack, including time and place, and writes that he chose this location because there is a high concentration of Black people in the area"

I don't necessarily get the need for mental health qualifiers.  Is anyone who plans a mass shooting completely sane?  Can't we assume by the action that he was unhinged?  Does this somehow make the situation better or worse that he was crazy?

Well because some people were waiting for the standard GOP reply/dodge about this being tied to mental health and not guns.


probably not


most would


Still extremely tragic

I didn't know a respiratory condition caused racist mindsets.  Someone should just take care of this Epstein Style.

Fox news is blaming video games. Not guns or promoting replacement on their network.
