    ”This is a tragedy that we never, ever would have thought would happen in El Paso," El Paso Mayor Dee Margo told CNN.
    Really? What’s so special about El Paso?

    They have pictures of the guy, see my link in the OP. He was using an AK, given the hospital reports he shot a lot of people.

    According to the mayor, it is one of the safer larger cities in the US.

    The same principle as "I never thought it would happen to me". Nothing about El Paso in particular.

    Yeah, first reports from the field are never correct. Keep hearing varying numbers.

    El Paso likes to have an image of a peaceful safe community against accusations of be a drug lord run hellhole.

    According to Safewise.com, El Paso is the 6th safest metro city in the US.

    Despite border and immigration controversies, El Paso preserves its reputation as one of the safest metro cities in the nation. Both violent and property crime rates dropped compared to last year’s rankings. This positive momentum is even more impressive when you consider that El Paso sits below both the nationwide median household income and the average rate of high school graduation. But these factors don’t stand in El Paso’s way when it comes to creating vibrant communities that are committed to safety and lending a hand.

    It is amazing how this town is coming together - there are so many coming to the blood drawing centers that they don't have the staff to keep up.
