Looks like the staff at least had warm boots.

I never noticed the boots.

White lunatic kills 9 African Americans in a Charleston Church. During prayer class.

North Carolina police apprehend and detain suspect.

Seems they teach their apprehension techniques with a little more attention to detail in the southeast than in more central areas of the US.

the US has become a country where breaking into someone's car, or stealing their bicycle, or being seen in a public with a bath towel, is punishable by death. so much for "due process".

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

And in a nationwide brave move, major American retailers have taken it upon themselves to accept the lesser economic evil and ban sales of the Confederate Flag based on the fact that they clearly generate less less profit and revenue than the sales of firearms and ammunition.

Faced with a choice, I'd take my chances against a lunatic with a flag rather than someone brandishing a loaded firearm. But as we daren't even think about thinking about using the words "ban" and "firearm" in the same sentence, then expect more innocents to die soon in a school/mall/church/pizza parlor/kindergarten/diner in your local neighborhood.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think the average American was probably more armed in the 19th than the 21st century, but it seems only recently that mass shootings have occurred in schools, churches, and movie theatres. Maybe I'm wrong and it is the availability of guns, but are people just crazier?

Nah, it's just that the means of eliminating undesirable minorities are becoming somewhat limited now smallpox has been eradicated and lynching has gone out of fashion.

well, thank god then for the holy prison industrial complex and institutional racism. personally i'm a bit more frightened with slow socially accepted ways of killing off groups of people in the name of justice and perceived social values. smallpox blankets and lynching still exist, they've just changed form.

Ex-con who was recently under investigation for money laundering despite saying he'd left that life behind. Not the same sort of shooting at all.

Re: A shooting just happened in ( *fill in the blank * )

Yeah, But it's is likely to start a gang war, and it will bring back Gunchester.
People always get caught in the cross-fire and it will increase gun crime in the area too. The 90's were no bed of roses for the non-gang members in Moss Side etc.
