Clearly this got a bump because the initial tweets were saying it was Charlottesville.


My intentions were not to slam you as the OP, but to suggest that the news networks will ride this into the ground with 8 hours of live coverage when it is a very common event through dozens of cities everyday. Once again it is their way to breath life into the whole fascist narrative, something a few months ago was nothing more than a bunch of low life clowns that no one cared about and got no coverage to empower them in anyway.

Sounds like possibly something is going down in a restaurant?


Yawn....

There were 11 active shooters in Chicago yesterday alone... I'm sure this is much bigger though, just ask the news networks.


Right there with you.

This is news why ?

Because Ingsoc declared it to be.


There are 44 murders per day in the United States.
www.reference.com...

Unless it's someone "important" or an Allah Ackbar! at a shopping mall, nothing to see here.

p.s. But I gotta admit, it is rather boring when Congress is on a 40 day recess, and the there are no juicy leaks. Even FoxNews was regurgitating old news from earlier in the week, this morning.

Those murders arent typically involving hostages... or the city that took the nation by storm a couple weeks ago.

Just sayin

It's a fair criticism. Shouldn't there be more coverage in places with the most violence? Unfortunately, the way human minds work, we can pretty much grow accustomed to anything and accept it as the "new norm" (though, in terms of adapting, that's clearly an advantage). So unless it's something like a small child being murdered, individual homicides in Chicago are "expected" and therefore not "newsworthy" at the national level.

Whereas an active shooter in a restaurant in downtown Charleston, SC, is unexpected and therefore alarming and newsworthy.

"Whereas an active shooter in a restaurant in downtown Charleston, SC, is unexpected and therefore alarming and newsworthy."

It is?

Why?

Are there not people living there?

Or are you hinting at the fact it's not black people killing black people?
And that should be expected?

Hmmm you might be a racist(Sarcasm)

Shouldn't those black lives matter instead of running around shouting 'white supremacist' ?

Maybe those people should draw attention to it.


of all the dumb and retarded threads by xuenchen and other mentalists you reply to, this is what you see as a waste of a thread? a possible hostage situation?

gtfoh


I wouldn't go around calling his threads retarded.

Xuenchen's critics aren't exactly mental giants.

So this unfortunately did not end without injury.

Hostage situation at Charleston, S.C., restaurant ends; gunman shot after chef is killed



A fired dishwasher shot and killed a chef and held a person hostage for about three hours before he was shot by police at a crowded restaurant in a tourist-heavy area of downtown Charleston on Thursday, authorities and one of the restaurant's owners said. The hostage was freed with no injuries, Mayor John Tecklenburg said. The shooting took place at Virginia's restaurant on the usually crowded King Street, a line of shops and nice dining that caters to both tourists and residents in South Carolina's largest and most historic city.

"'I am the new king of Charleston,'" the Siegerts quoted the man as saying.

The man told diners to get on the floor and move to the back of the restaurant. The Siegerts said they escaped out a back door and didn't know how many people were left behind.

One of the restaurant's owners, John Aquino, told WCSC-TV that a dishwasher who had been fired came back to the restaurant and shot a chef to get revenge.


They're reporting that the man had some sort of mental health issues in the past. Not much else about him. It does appear that he was taken alive.
