    The Wednesday killings of five UNARMED people in two midmorning shootings, in two busy parts of the city, turned out to be perpetrated by the same man.
    Fixed it for him.

    Has it been established that they were unarmed?

    Honestly, I've been trying to confirm it. But you KNOW if one had been armed, the media would be blasting us with how it didn't help. I'm sticking to my story.

    I don't see how it is relevant. The Lakewood PD officers were all armed, and it did them no good. Sometimes a gun doesn't help.

    When you are targeted specifically, often not. But relevant for most acts of random violence reported in the media. At least one of these individuals was probably targeted, from my initial read, but most were probably not.

    Thumbs up

    Funny thing is the media is faliing all over themselve to praise one of the customers at the cafe where it all started.
    why you ask?
    Because he apparently used a BARSTOOL to fight with the gunman allowing 3 customers to escape.....had he been carrying he probably would have stopped this rampage where it started. a firearm works much better than a barstool against a criminal with a gun.

    Because a bar stool is politically correct.

    And if it did work better than a gun, we'd see police with bar stools hanging off their belts instead of firearms.

    On NPR this morning I heard that the guy said "I'm not going to hide under a table". Up yours, Colin Godard.
