    A few years ago there was a guy who posted some stuff online that were some red flags and the authorities were alerted. They showed up at the guy's house and confiscated his guns, and I can't remember exactly but they may have arrested him as well. People were up in arms about how his right to free speech was being violated. I think the police did the right thing though.

    I saw the Chan that the Christchurch shooter was active on before it got deleted.

    When he announced what he was going to do (with links to the livestream and his manifesto) the denizens there cheered him on, it was absolutely sickening. (and then the same scum cheering him on also started the "it's a false flag to make us look bad" crap.)

    The problem is that these nutters, and I include chaps like the ecofascist who shot up the mosque in Christchurch, the far right lunatics, and the jihadi's as nutters, look for and find a community that will encourage them to these despicable acts

    I've dealt with a number of people who were possibly a danger to themselves or others, and I've sat in while the doctor carefully weighs - in his words - "taking away your personal freedoms without a real solid reason". I've actually heard the person say "well, if I get out of here, I'm just going to kill myself or somebody else", and the doctor has to weigh whether that's just drama, or a credible threat.

    My OWN daughter going through some issues with "hearing voices" and making her own statements about harming herself has made me realize how little I know about how the brain actually works when it goes "off the rails" like that.

    The number injured may never be known due to speculation some injured could be avoiding hospitals due to illegal immigration status.

    In a situation like this, I would be quite OK with getting the word out "no questions asked" for treatment of related serious injuries.

    No. The El Paso shooter has been identified online as a young white man whose social media activity showed support and sympathy for president Trumpís apparent white nationalist agenda. And he acted alone.

    Also, another "gun free" zone.
    Doesn't look like it. The shooter apparently left an anti-immigration screed on 8-chan complaining about the "Hispanic invasion of Texas" and was a fanboi of the shooter at the New Zealand mosques.

    Trumpís apparent white nationalist agenda? You really are an ass Tass...
