A Skinhead opened fire at a Sikh Temple in a Milwaukee suburb this morning, killing six and shooting many others (included a first responder) before police took him down. They have classified this as an act of Domestic Terrorism.

Sikhs, for those that don't know, are practitioners of a peaceful religion that was founded in India over 500 years ago. They often get mistaken for Muslims because they have beards and turbans.

Seriously though, what the fuck is wrong with this country? Not only is shit like this becoming more common, but NO ONE is talking about it. If I didn't check the news feed on my phone, I would have never known about it. Perhaps because the cops and FBI are doing what they should do and NOT releasing the identity of the killer.

I heard about this on FB the other day as well. Completely pathetic... and as you said it's definitely annoying when the news never covers the real stuff like this. I don't get it.

Also not sure if this was brought up in the other thread, firearm death rate by country. Utterly disturbing that we are extremely high on the list.

My first thought when Brandon told me a Sikh temple had been shot up was that it must have been some lunatic who mistook them for Muslim (who should also never be attacked either!).

What a fucking shame all around.

My question is why is this getting tagged as an act of terrorism and the Aurora kid isn't?

Something in the shooter's background from what I can tell. I have to read what was released at the press conference to really know.

The bias of the media boils my piss. A blue-eyed Christian boy from a rich family stubbing his toe would have priority over a minority any day. Fuck this country. No, fuck the idiots in this country.

Evidence of shooter's involvement in the white supremacist movement. Implications obvious.

Aurora shooter clearly deranged, but no clear rationalization.

Yeah well, our idiots are louder, more obnoxious, turn a blind eye to facts... and open fire on innocents twice in one month.

It's true that crime rate is lower here, but it's not all that good, considering the current government is basically trying to make more things become criminal offenses (i.e: recently, they introduced a law that could give the same amount of prison time for the possession of drugs than sex offenders would get).

Aside from that, you have Quebec (where I live), a place where skin color doesn't matter as much a whether you speak French or not.

This song has seriously been stuck in my head for a month:


Just saying.

Apparently it's just now getting reported that the gunman, who was a veteran, shot himself in the head. Source

I want to visit Quebec... they wouldn't hate me too much for not speaking French if I did my best would they? It made more sense to take Spanish in high school, after all (you know, since Mexico is like right there)

But yeah, I have seen stuff in the papers about this but no major media circus. I'm just hoping that it's because they handled it right and not because the victims were minorities.

And ANOTHER shooting... not a mass shooting, really, but three are dead.

Apparently in Texas it is okay for a family to give a mentally ill member a semi-automatic gun?

Did you hear that Dave Mustaine (of Megadeth) claims Obama staged these shootings in order to garner support for stricter gun laws?

Wow, any respect I had for Mustaine just went right down the crapper.

Does he mean Obama, the President with the most lax gun laws in the last few decades? Stupid people need to shut the fuck up, especially celebrities.

Here's a source on it.

Apparently he went on this rant about Obama being a nazi while performing in Singapore.


"Back in my country, my president is trying to pass a gun ban," Mustaine said at a concert in Singapore last week. "So he's staging all of these murders, like the Fast and Furious thing down at the border and Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there. And now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple."


EDIT: Video!
