ATS should just make a single thread for mass shootings. It's getting too crowded in the forums to have a new thread for each one.

Obviously an event of some magnitude.
More hugs for Texas go'n out as we wait to see what set this guy off.

Two mass shootings in Texas, one of the most “pro-gun” states in the US, within a month.

Beyond the shear insanity of the incident, something smells “off” about this.

Or maybe my tinfoil is too tight!


Awakened Minds and the cliched "something smells off about this" ..

What is it this time that smells off?

It didn't happen, no one died, the police haven't given all the facts yet, the videos don't match up to what Awakened Minds think mass shooting events should look like . Please help me understand what smells off.


What smells off?

That two mass shootings would occur in so short a period in a state with a very strong support of the 2nd amendment.

It’s almost as if someone, or something, is trying to “send a message”:

Continue to resist gun control reforms, and you will “pay the price”.

Personally, I favor reforms.

But NOT if this is how they are to be “induced”;

Or should I say, Coerced?

Coerced by whom? you can't take the evil and transplant it without proof positive!
That's how world wars got started...twisting the truth.

However, people have died..that is the cry...and someone is now bereft, and alone in their grief.
Do you care enough to do due diligence

Haven't we seen a number of science fiction books and movies where pursuits like this were watched on TV with all the mind washed masses following every move, every death, everything happening with great relish? Seems I recall this scenario from Fahrenheit 451 where the citizens were prompted by the TV to look out their windows when the perps were spotted in their vacinity and help the police to find them?


"All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances..."

Yeah this is weird. At what point did this guy just say oh # it, lets suicide by cop.
From a traffice stop. It couldnt have been that he planned this. It just seems so random.
So wtf happened when the cop pulled him over.
He stopped. He didnt initially run.


On his way to a mass murder, doesn't want attention, get stopped, thinks "play it cool, get on with it."
Cop says "mind if I search your vehicle, sir?"
Dude thinks "no" pulls his gun out and starts early.
Needs to now change his vehicle, sees the postie, thinks "perfect"
Here we are..

What is the approved time frame for Conspiracy Theorists when it comes to events like this?

Does every 45 days make it less "off"?

The guy shot the officers before they got to his car.


Before that vehicle came to a complete stop, the driver and only occupant pointed a rifle toward his rear window and fired several shots toward the DPS patrol unit, wounding one of the troopers, Carter said.

It hasn't been said why he was stopped. Making people wonder why they are not stating the reason.

Gotcha. Outstanding warrants maybe and a routine traffic stop (speed, etc) forced this guy to start shooting. It sounds like he was known to local LE.

Some are speculating he may have been on the way to do a shooting when he was stopped.

edit:

Someone running due to warrants usually doesn't do a mass shooting.

Two troopers riding together. I bet someone called in to the police and said he was going out to do a shooting and the police found him on the way. This whole thing is off unless it was going to be a mass shooting from the start..

Been a while since a postal worker went postal but that's why it's called going postal.

They must be still working on the story they will tell about this one.

I would think some people would realize a friend or family member is missing or dead and would say something.

Yeah, they have to scrub/alter all their social media, write up a manifesto, bla bla bla.

Daily Mail is already reporting that it was a white male while in the same story saying officials have yet to "officially" confirm the identity of the gunman. Yet it's not the media fanning racial tensions.

Here you go-

“The incident began at about 3.25pm CST on Saturday after Texas Department of Public Safety officers attempted to stop a man who failed to signal on a left turn, Odessa Police Chief Michael Gerke said.

The driver, who was alone in a gold pickup truck, slowed but did not stop, and fired a rifle through the rear window of the truck, striking one of the two officers.

The shooter fled westbound on the interstate, and shooting at a civilian at east Loop 338 and I-20. The suspect proceeded on a shooting spree in the City of Odessa and stole a mail carrier truck before being cornered at the Cinergy on Highway 191.

Witness video shows police confronting the suspect outside of the theater and engaging in a shootout.”
