Mass Shootings

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Coverage of shootings is a lot like coverage of missing girls. Cute blonde soccer players get national coverage; First nation and Black girls not so much.

That's an awful thing to say about our responsible and unbiased media. 23 football fans of all races get covered, too.

Police Chief, and others, plead "this is not Kansas City." Well, it turns out, it is. In 2023, KC had it most ever homicides at 182 or about one every other day all year long. Mostly with guns; mostly Black males. And that's just people that were killed. Couldn't find a number of shootings without deaths, but I'm guessing there's probably in excess of one/day. Nothing unusual about the shooting at the SB celebration, and the only difference was that there were a lot more people accidentally in the line of fire of the "good thugs with guns."

Yet nobody will admit that it's gun culture and of guns that make these things so commonplace.

... When police asked Mays why he "advanced" on the other group in the first place, Mays "replied, 'Stupid, man. Just pulled a gun out and started shooting. I shouldn’t have done that. Just being stupid,'" the probable cause affidavit said.

"When reminded that the person Lyndell Mays was shooting at was running away from him, Lyndell Mays replied, 'I know,'" the probable cause affidavit said....
Yep, "Stupid, man," individual, availability and culture :angry-banghead:

Just a boring city in a red gunhugging state:

At least 7 shot, all under age 17, in mass shooting near Indianapolis mall

"One victim was in critical condition, and the six others were stable."
... Last Sunday, five people, including an officer, were killed in a shooting in the east side of the city, the station reported. An officer shot and killed the suspect in that case.

And one person was killed and five other people were injured in a shooting at a bar on March 16, according to The Indianapolis Star....

For once they caught one before he shot anybody. Hope they'll be able to put him away for a while. Even if it's the loony bin.

5 teens injured in shooting at senior skip day gathering in Maryland park: Police
"To have something like this occur is just maddening," the police chief said.


... Three victims were released from the hospital and the sole victim listed as critical has been upgraded to stable condition, Greenbelt Police said Saturday....

The students had initially gathered in Bowie, Maryland, for senior skip day and were asked to disperse by local law enforcement, a Greenbelt Police Department spokesperson told ABC News. Many of those students then moved to Schrom Hills Park, where they participated in a large water gun fight prior to the shooting, police said....
