Homeland Security and El Paso PD are now actively looking for "shooting teams" that are still mobile and in the nearby area/cities. STAY THE # IN DOORS! This is not a one off random shooting. This is a well coordinated attack with many shooters (hearing as many as 18).
What's going on
Three attackers in six months allegedly posted their plans on the site in advance. In an exclusive interview, Silicon Valley CEO explains his ‘moral obligation’ to keep 8chan online
Keeping 8chan within its network is a “moral obligation”, he said, adding: “We, as well as all tech companies, have an obligation to think about how we solve real problems of real human suffering and death.

8chan offers a forum of discussion where there’s no fear of BO sensorship like Twitter, FB, etc.
The DS doesn’t want this unchecked communication channel available to the masses. Shutting it down is critical for them.
If the shooter posted the manifesto and it’s content was enough to point toward an event.. why didn’t the DS intel/LE that monitors said forums take action? If they can’t/won’t... how can anyone else?
If any gun toting American knew he was headed to that Walmart, he would have been dropped before he got 20’ from his car.
This is the rub; if mom, dad, bro, sis, teachers, pastors, neighbors, and friends didn’t know/see/discern enough to “red tag” him with LE, how can anyone else be expected to?
My bet, there’s enough red flags to warrant taking the advice we’ve been applying to Islamic Terror; see something...say something.

Texas shooter was a registered Democrat. Did the MSM tell the public that?
