For the other folks who haven't been watching the news. There was a mass casualty event in Indianapolis at a FedEx facility. So far, there has only been a video of two very soft-looking males that described the weapon as "an automatic sub-machine gun"... but yet, they describe the shooter as firing the shots off in a way that sounds like a semi-auto gun. Thirty ambulances arrived, but none have left according to these two "expert witnesses". The police closed HW 70 for about an hour in response. Other than the shooter being Dead (suicide), there is no info on age, race or motive at this time.

The police are planning to hold a conference at 1 AM Indianapolis time. My guess, is that it will be delayed.

    That description sound to me like "genuine-imitation, fake-original, Corinthian-Naugahyde"....

    Where's Ricardo Montalban when you need him?

    he was a former employee. The more they keep pushing these stories nationally, the more they're going to happen. Its been proven that this is true, just like when celeb's commit suicide, there is a big jump in suicides around the country. Amazing how there were none of these really to speak of in 2020, but this year is full of them. Hmmm.....????

    I find it funny that we knew the race and gender of the police officer who shot a man resisting arrest, MUCH faster than the identity of a mass shooter. Fedex has all kinds of interior cameras inside their buildings to discourage theft. The shooter was, with a certainty, captured on video.

    There were likely dozens of eye witnesses. All we got were those two ditzy males, who thought he had a "sub machine gun", but described semi-auto fire. I bet we won't learn his identity until AFTER they have scrubbed his Facebook page.

    Well, they are delivering the briefing now. No mention of the identity of the killer, weapon or motive. After 12 hours they should at LEAST know the identity and weapon. According to statements, they are searching the killer's home, so they clearly know WHO the killer is.

    Of course they know the identity, they knew he was a former employee. How tf would they know he worked there without knowing who he was? What is probably is, is the identity doesn't jive with a certain narrative they want to push, but the gun itself most certainly does jive with a different one that is almost equally important to them.

    i remember when some people posted pictures of "planking" and all of a sudden people everywhere were doing it.
    yes, some humans are that simple.

    why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
    it was dead.
    why did the other monkeys leave the tree?
    peer pressure.

    Federal psychiatrist: To stop these mass shooters you need to stop giving them the infamy they seek, they act like it's a game of how many people they can kill to get press attention -- don't let them have it.
    Also feds: Mass cuasualty event, Level 1! New scoring system!

    unfortunately true.
    i am not blaming video games, but it today's world of media frenzy, it seems like it is about getting a high score in the game.
    people need others to pay attention to their problems, and there is one sure way to get attention.

    Most of America is trying everything they can make up to harm my Second Amendment Rights.

    Texans are so fucking Texan. You guys are like the 20th state to do this, and it isn't even done, but once again, Texans act like they invented the fucking modern world.

    I could literally dig up at least 100 studied done since the 90's that all contain or allude to infamy and a scoring system.


    You'll also find a shocking correlation between these shootings and SSRI's. SSRI's are prescribed for a number of things, to include depression and chronic pain. There are much more recent articles then that one, but I like the source so I went with it.

    Correlation != causation, I agree -- but at some point the floor is wet because the faucet is on, for fucks sake.


    As to the scoring system, several diaries/manifesto's of shooters have specifically cited a desire to exceed a previous high score of another freak. Psychologists have legitimately stated this concern for literally decades. They call out the media, the government, and the public in general for adding to the issue. Nobody stops, they just don't give a fuck -- they're just desperate to have shit to talk about, rage about, finger, etc...

    When I saw that the government there, not sure if that's a local or fed thing, called it a "Mass Casualty Event, Level 1" -- I about spit out my coffee. At that point it is in your face that they are trying to provoke these. There's no pretending anymore, they want more. They are openly requesting more mass shooters on aisle 7, please.

    Can anyone make it to level 2? How many levels are there? What's the rules?

    These are questions that, upon hearing those words, legitimately went through the minds of some very sick people whom I assure you exist and are right now trying to decide how to play this new game.

    It could just be something like F1-F5 hurricane or 3-alarm fire, 4-alarm fire... to indicate the seriousness and level of response needed...
    I wouldn't tin-foil automatically they are urging for more phychos to reach high levels... although, though incompetence and ignorance, sure.

    I remember playing one of the call of duty’s in college. There was level setup to literally to go through an airport with a couple dudes and belt feds. Just now them down. Imagine having mental issues prior to that game, then being rewarded for shooting hundreds of people. Kind of fuc***

    Austin sucks canal water. So embarrassing that it's the State Capitol. Full of "homeless" meth heads and skinny jean wearing, man bun libtards. Most of us in TX would love to put a fence around it, San Antonio(excepting the Alamo), Houston and DFW.

    They didn't give a description of the shooter. So he's either black or muslim.

    From the article: “I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing and he starts yelling stuff that I could not understand,” witness Levi Miller told WTHR-TV."

    If he couldn't understand it that's because whatever he was saying was probably in Arabic.

    Known to local and federal law enforcement. Not sure where the Sikh community ties in. Another article said he's white, but then that was also claimed about the imported shooter.

    Probably trying to intimate that it was a racial thing.

    Well, duh. The thing is, just about every person I saw in footage of the facility was black. So the race thing is already kind of there if someone wants to think it. Definitely didn't see any Sikhs. Maybe threats in the past against Sikhs is why he's known to LE.

    Yes, and a great meme shows a collection of pictures of all the mass shooters of 2020. Statistically, it was not the angry white man, as the press tries to depict it. The 48% of the population (white), was poorly represented in the "mass murders". They certainly didn't account for 48 percent of the mass killers.
