Mass shooting in San Bernadino

What else is there to say? Other than we’ve had more mass shootings in 2015 than we’ve had days in 2015. (From the Washington Post)

The San Bernadino incident was the second mass shooting of the day yesterday. The other didn’t seem to matter that much because only one person died.

It would be also be the second mass shooting just today — in the early morning hours, one person was killed and three were injured in an incident in Savannah, Georgia.

These figures come from a shooting database on Reddit:

The Mass Shooting Tracker is different from other shooting databases in that it uses a broader definition of mass shooting — the old FBI definition focused on four or more people killed as part of a single shooting.

According to the old FBI criteria, Savannah doesn’t count, because only one person was killed. So if a psychopath goes into a crowded place with an automatic weapon and wounds 100 people, that’s not a mass shooting.

As of this writing, police just had a shootout with the suspects in a San Bernadino suburb. Two of the suspects are dead. Let’s see if it’s called domestic terrorism.

A terrorist attacked Colorado Springs

And no, it wasn’t a Syrian refugee or a member of an ISIS cell who snuck through the Mexican border. It was a usual suspect:

The day after a gunman stormed a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, investigators were working to determine what prompted the shooting that resulted in the death of three people, including a police officer.

Police identified the shooting suspect as 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear but released no other information about him. He is accused of killing two civilians in addition to University of Colorado police officer Garrett Swasey, as well as injuring at least four other officers and five more civilians.

While the scumbag politicians and bedwetters on the right blather on about the danger of refugees and Islamic terror, they say nothing about the true terrorist threat that they not only created, but also inspire with their rhetoric of doom and their refusal to do anything about this country’s insane gun policies. The religion-inspired psychopaths on our own shores are more likely to kill you than any orphan or woman in a hijab are trying to escape from the religious nuts who are running amok in their countries.

So let’s take a look at the face of the latest practitioner of Tea Party terrorism:

And what is this terrorist responding to? (via the Washington Post):

The shooting arrives during a period of heightened scrutiny for Planned Parenthood. In July, an antiabortion group released a series of secretly filmed videos from a clinic in Denver that showed staffers discussing the extraction of fecal tissue from aborted fetuses before that tissue is sent to research facilities. The videos, which Planned Parenthood officials have claimed were heavily edited to bolster critics’ false claims, provoked a series of nationwide protests in August aimed at cutting off federal funding for the healthcare organization. Planned Parenthood officials said the protests were designed to intimidate and harass patients.

Health centers associated with Planned Parenthood have been the target of threats and violence because of the organization’s role in providing abortions and lobbying for reproductive rights. Abortion rights groups say threats against abortion providers rose sharply this summer in the wake of the undercover “sting” operation that produced the controversial videos.

At least four Planned Parenthood clinics have been targeted with arson since the videos were released. The increase in threats has led abortion rights groups to increase cooperation with local police and the FBI.

So, the instigators on the right doctor videos to inspire a terrorist act. And, surprise, a terrorist acts.

Policing vs. murder

This is how British police deal with a man threatening them with a machete:

This is how American cops deal with a kid avoiding them with a knife:

One of these methods is called taking control of a dangerous situation. The other is called cold-blooded murder.

As of today, 884 people have been shot dead by police in America. Many of those incidents have been ruled as justified. But 82 of the incidents involved people who weren’t armed, Including this one:

Jeremy Mardis, an unarmed 6-year-old white male, was shot on Nov. 3, 2015, in Marksville, La. Marksville marshals were pursuing the boy’s father, Chris Few. Few fled and marshals opened fire on his car, killing Jeremy, who was a passenger in the front seat.

Law enforcement in America has a world-wide reputation for excessive force. If you don’t believe that, listen to the Brits who are filming the guy with the machete.

If the guy with the machete was in America, he would have been dead before the guy taking the video would have had his camera out. The kid in Chicago in the second video was shot less than 30 seconds after the cop with the gun arrived. Only one cop did the shooting. Fired 16 times. Unloaded his clip. And he was reloading his weapon when the other officers must have yelled, “what the hell are you doing?”

Some very strange views on discrimination

Anything new in the world of delusion?

In a new poll released by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) on Tuesday, a whopping 43 percent of Americans told researchers that discrimination against whites has become as large a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minority groups. And an even bigger share of Americans — 53 percent — told pollsters American culture and “way of life” have mostly changed for the worse since 1950.

Do they even have a clue of what life was like in the 1950s and earlier?

Are they offended because they can’t do this openly anymore?

Are they saying this is not as bad as what they are experiencing today?

Who exactly is saying that discrimination against whites has become as large a problem as discrimination against blacks and other minority groups?

So, it’s the usual suspects.

Attacks in Paris

The news out of Paris is horrific. Religious fanatics with guns and bombs have killed at least 120 people. It’s an attack by Islamic State psychopaths.

The best television news coverage has been on France 24.

President Francois Holland gave this speech soon after the attack on the Stade de France, where he was one of the fans at a football match between France and Germany:

And President Obama had this to say from the White House:

But the French are in solidarity. Football fans sang the national anthem as they left the Stade de France after the attacks:

And, of course, someone stupid has something disgusting to say about it all.
