Atlanta again

Sad news from Atlanta again, a twenty-one-year-old man went on a shooting spree in three spas, killing eight with one more seriously injured. Police stopped him on the freeway on his way to Florida for more shootings, because, of course, Florida.

Currently with the information at hand, the shooter would seem to fit in with the incel group. Young men who are “involuntarily celibate,” and blame women for their issues. They typically believe they “deserve” sex and women should give it free.

Frankly, I don’t understand these idiots.

 The shooter’s parents apparently kicked him out of their house a she was sitting around watching porn all the time.  So, like any other rational person, he went and bought a gun, went to the spas and started shooting Asians. Regardless of what he thinks, seems cut-and-dry hate crime: killing Asian women.

Then you get the professional idiots out.

At Congress they were having hearings on the rise of attacks on Asian Americans since the Covid outbreak and the Cheeto-in-chiefs “Kung flu” and “china virus” bullshit.  A Texas GOP congressman started crying about free speech and “a long rope and a tree” if he can’t blame China for the virus. How he connected the dots that beating Asian Americans and criticizing Chinese gov’t policy to be the same thing escapes me.

Then there’s the Sherriff in Georgia saying the shooter “had a bad day.”

Well, hell ,why didn’t you say so in the first place? The other eight families who are grieving right now, why don’t you march up to their doors and explain that to them.

“A bad day” does not justify going to three separate businesses and opening up with a handgun. Who’s the idiot in charge of that guy?

Sadly, this will get so mired in partisan bullshit, right vs left, whites v minorities, religion v porn, etc., etc. that the families of the slain will get pulled under. Caught in the undertow of folk so invested in proving their point that the families will lose more than their loved ones, they’ll have lost the time to properly grieve.
