He was reported dead and then it was corrected. I was listening to the police scanner when they found him and it seemed that the cops were assuming he was dead... they were casual and not calling for medical.

I hope they don't vilify the journalist victims.


Why would they vilify? Because of what the killer posted about them on twitter?


Who knows… with his posts on Twitter, you could have some lunatic fringe members of BLM or the NBPP coming out in support of the shooter.

Do we gate a look at the 23 page report? Sorry, I'm 10 pages behind, if someone would point at it…

The guy tweeted a video of the shooting. I was able to see it seconds before it was taken down. It was quite possibly one of the most disturbing things I've ever seen, it almost didn't seem real. The guy stood there with his gun out for what seemed like forever, as both the reporter and cameraman were to busy to notice him standing there.

The shooter also seemed incredibly calm, taking his time to get both video and gun ready. He had a few tweets before the videos of some EEOC complaint he filed. Seconds after I saw the videos his entire account had been suspended. I'm sure law enforcement is now going back through is feed to see what kinds of things he was posting prior to the shooting.

Since there's a racial component to this story, Rev. Al should be interjecting himself very soon.


Let's see if you cope the hounding I did for 'apparently' disrespecting the victims by making a political comment. Or is it only disrespectful if you don't agree with it?

Let's hope not.

To vilify two people who are gone and cannot defend themselves.

This wasn't a mass shooting so what's your point?

People get murdered in just about every country on the planet, I think it's safe to say.

This is insane... the killer just uploaded video of the shooting.


Should we be giving him the time of day?

He just killed people. The only media coverage he deserves is when the public gets to see him take the stand.

Screw his videos, and people should ignore their morbid curiosity because it plays into his hands. He wants to be seen and talked about, we should be depriving him of that.


Yeah, because you should only be able to hear what an accused criminal says from someone else's mouth, or while he's under the pressure of a trial and may not/most likely cannot speak freely..

That seems odd to me. Wouldn't they logically check his pulse once they found him wounded?

Or, maybe they just didn't care and just wanted him to die a slow death.

Can't wait to hear from the BLM crowd. After all, the shooter killed himself and the other two deserved it since he said they were racist (eyeroll).

I don't think it's disrespectful. I think it's in poor taste that this is still developing and we have to make political comments, or talk about Al Shaprton and race.

Why don’t you read the article


You’re right on one score….this was only 2 killed and they consider 4 killings a mass killing so this is actually not literally a mass killing.

The point is things like this are so normal to us…

The point is to remind of the savage violent society we live in or…if you want fine

WORLD WE LIVE IN

I hope that makes you feel better

Of course. Let's drag BLM in to this.

For the love of god guys.

Never let a crisis go to waste, indeed.

I hope he doesn't die, I want to see him go to trial, death is to easy


I hope he croaks. If he were to live, these days, there's a chance he could be found "not guilty".

San Diego channel 6 news is reporting that the shooter was hired and fired by their news director in 2006 for "bizarre behavior and threatening employees."

ETA - this was at a Florida station. The director now works in San Diego.

I don't see why anyone is surprised that a wannabe reporter filmed and uploaded his crime. Given it seems likely he intended to kill himself, it's one last story at the end of the day. It's big news, and that piece of XXXX gets the byline.

Pathetic individual anyhow.
