I had to the first time I heard it as well. WTF is wrong with people.

And did they name themselves? Because that's a pretty dumb name. Come up with something a little more cool sounding at least, you know?

Edit: Just finished reading the Wikipedia article. That's intense. Also I know someone who fits this profile really well. I should talk to him more often, see how he's doing.

Wow, the news cycle has already moved from yesterday. I guess with "only" two deaths it didn't have the staying power of Las Vegas or Pulse or even Parkland.
Collectively we don't really care, do we?

Or feel so disempowered and disenfranchised that emotional detachment and not caring seems apropos.

how has the NRA not come out and said the 9-11 could have been prevented if those in the tower had been properly trained?

The only thing that will prevent a bad guy with a plane is a good guy with a surface to air missile.

While I don't like the guy at all, how is this not a form of entrapment? She went to the website on purpose and met him on purpose and so now he's on the hook because she didn't feel like telling him she was under 18? That's kind of f'ed up.

It's not entrapment if she's not a cop.

That story doesn't say anything about whether he was aware of her age

I get the not-a-cop thing, and he should have inquired about her age definitely. Just feels weird that she went through this whole thing knowing she wasn't 18.

I suppose we were due for another one.
These days eight killed in a mass shooting doesn't even warrant "breaking news" interruptions except on the cable channels.
:(

So we have an attempted shooting at a predominantly black church, bombs sent to news and liberal figureheads, and a shooting at a synagogue. Lovely week.

Really glad America is great again. We just need some lynchings and we'll be all set!
