"Known to law enforcement" just isn't good enough. There's a shitload of people who are known to law enforcement.

He was living in his own online world, where the lonely, disenfranchised, sick, manipulable and unhinged can get all the validation and inspiration they need.

This is a cultural issue, and we're too fucking busy playing politics with it. As usual.

Right, but no liberals are gonna ask any questions about this. It's only the guns....

Oh, and per the article, the deranged loser's father unsuccessfully ran against the current mayor of Highland Park in the last few years. Huh.

Guarantee this gem of a young man was living at home. Living at home, probably no job, and so spiraling deeper and deeper into derangement. YOUNG. MEN. NEED. FOCUS. Not living like 8 year olds, playing around all day.

The liberals want to focus exclusively on guns but obtaining the weapon you use for the carnage your brain says is a great idea is the foundational problem here.
Are you suggesting that brains become outlawed?

Depends on the offense on his priors.

Of course, the liberals on this board want to take away Americans' guns with NO priors. So....

You just want to take away freedom with no priors.

So much better

To be fair, pretty much everyone is "known" to law enforcement. If you've ever got a ticket, reported a crime, or been asked your details by a police officer, you're in the database.
It is when you are “ well known “ and a “ menace “ is when you know you are truly on their radar…

Your first sentence is exactly the opposite of what I said.

My first sentence is what this whole OP is about.

Did I miss your objection to it?

I said "DEPENDS on his priors", to which your direct answer was "You just want to take away freedom with NO priors"

Had coffee yet?

The liberal disease, anthropomorphic promiscuity. Basement dwellers allowed free rein: Deleuze "Perhaps my speech is too free."

The time at recess was not interdicted, promoting more screenal space addiction and sloth, theatrics to entertain. Reinforcing the scopic drive, the perpetrator comes to wishing to see the pornography of the premeditated event coupled to the desire to entertain.

We don't think Crimo's 512 followers should be defined as "spiritual bonds." They were only part of the audience like parade goers were part of the audience. The spiritual bonds, if any, are likely not religious bonds either.

'In order that an affirmative will to destroy shall actually occur, three conditions must be fulfilled which are rarely found together: extensive atrophy of all releasing driving forces, complete or nearly complete lack of spiritual bonds, and finally, untrammeled activity, which in turn demands urges that are strong, but are almost bare of quality.'

Well, how many times do we hear this now? And yet the freaks are free to roam about murdering people.



Police said the 22-year-old suspect was “known to law enforcement…” One question that will be asked in the days to come: Were they aware of the violent videos have been online for many months?


I wonder what "known to law enforcement means"? Now I'm a very big believer that known dangerous people should be locked up and kept locked up to keep us all safer and I don't give a damn how many of them there are or how long we keep them locked up. BUT if this guy doesn't have an arrest record, then that does make it hard to lock people up who haven't done anything, yet. Although, if he were guilty of terroristic threatening then that should have been addressed with this guy because that is something he could have been and should have been arrested for.

He is an alt-right and a tramper.

View attachment 666367

He looks like he's acting like a retard in that picture. You should be able to relate. For all we know he's making fun of Trump supporters, or it means nothing at all and is just pure coincidence.

And as far as your "Trump Rally" photo, that's a shot of a parade and he's dressed like Waldo for some reason. The guy is nuts, plain and simple. Not sure why you all do this back and forth trying to pin a political ideology on these shooters. I really don't see the point in it other than making the tragedy about yourselves instead of the victims.

What powers do you wish to give the law enforcement that would have stopped this guy from doing this?
This is the kind of instance where the Red Flag laws might be able to help, but the same people screaming about how law enforcement didn't do anything ahead of time oppose them.

To have 3 year old's be given operations to change sex means to have psychotic episodes of mass killings.
I doubt you will find any three year olds who chose to have gender reassignment surgery that is usually done at birth when they have been determined to be intersexed.

And, yes, it is about the guns. This is nothing new. Young men often lack focus. That doesn't mean you give them guns that were meant for military use.
Okay. Which gun did he use?
