50+ dead; 200+ injured.

Stay safe y'all.

Looks like a "Lone Wolf" shoot 'em up out of a hotel window.

 

I'll leave any political comments for the politics thread.

The name of the suspect is a surprise. As is the target demographic.

Nothing surprising about a white male mass shooter.  They are our most likely and most common mass shooters.

Don't worry. I'm sure that Muslim travel ban will keep us safe.

Shooting country music fans was the surprise for me. Await strong condemnation of elderly white men from el presidente.

Oh but ain't that America, for you and me
Ain't that America, we're something to see baby
Ain't that America, home of the free, yeah
Little pink houses for you and me, oh for you and me

Because ineffectiveness to impotence to do anything to stop these should be preventable situations has caused frustration to sometimes overwhelm my empathy and sympathy and making me be a callus insensitive asshole.

I am completely disgusted by this. Definitely shitty news to wake up to.

My heart goes to the victims and their families. I won't bother making any political comments, waiting for the dust to settle, so to speak.

Condolences to the victims families and friends.

It must be so hard for those connected to come to terms with these attacks, seemingly no motive, just hatred.

Yes, very upsetting.  And I think the toll might get much higher.  I have nine family members who were there on vacation, one already dead and my sister says my BIL isn't looking too good and that most of the people around where they had been standing were either shot or killed.

I was shocked when I first heard it had crossed 50, as when I first read the news it was around 20. Apparently over 200 were injured as well.

Perhaps President Trump could extend the ban to middle-aged white men?

I'm so sorry. Whatever you may think of me, if anything at all, please believe I'm being earnest here

Fuck. I'm so sorry. I fear you're right as well, having seen the crowd and the hotel overlooking it, my first and recurringb thought was that it was going to be very very bad :(

Terrible event. Condolences to all affected. Nothing more one can say really at this point, other than wishing that we lived in a world where evil such as this does not happen.

I'm so sorry.  A woman who works with my office had friends at the concert.  Thankfully, no one she knows was injured.
