Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

At least 6 dead and two dozen injured after shooting in Highland Park, Illinois

Post by nemo »

At least six people were killed in a shooting in downtown Highland Park, Illinois, during a July 4th parade, and dozens have been injured, officials said.
Police are still searching for the suspect and have identified 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo III, who is being sought for his "alleged involvement" in the shooting, the FBI said on Monday evening. He's considered armed and dangerous, officials say, and a manhunt is underway to find him.
The suspect appeared to be shooting from a rooftop, authorities said, and a "high-powered rifle” has been recovered from the scene. Residents in the area of the shooting are being advised to shelter in place. The city is located about 25 miles north of Chicago.

Interesting fellow.
Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III, the person of interest identified by police after Monday’s shooting in a Chicago suburb left six people dead and 38 hurt, left a long trail of tributes to mass shootings and public killings on social media platforms, according to numerous profiles that appear to belong to him.

Crimo performed as a rapper who went by the name “Awake,” whose recent music videos included depictions of mass murder.

Crimo’s most recent video posted to YouTube showed him in the aftermath of a school shooting. It ends with Crimo draping himself in an American flag. Another music video showed a cartoon depiction of a man wearing a shirt with his YouTube channel’s logo on it, holding a long gun and being shot by police.

The YouTube account that hosted his videos, which had previously been accessible to the public, was unavailable Monday night.

Edit, didn’t even see it was a Trump thing at first. Can’t tell if he’s wearing a Trump flag as a supporter or as a joke, but this guy going psycho shouldn’t be attributed to his political party anyway.

Not quite the same, is it? Denmark's first mass shooting in 30+ years. How many has the US had in that time?

More thoughts and prayers? Seems to be making things better.

Current Illinois State Senator and governor hopeful Darren Bailey sent out an inspiring message telling people to pray for justice and to move on and enjoy the Independence celebration. This was about two (2) hours after the shooting and before the suspect was even apprehended.

Governor hopeful?

Have we established a reason yet why so many Joe Averages living in urban areas need to own automatic weapons?

Rabbits and squirrels?
