    He's 18yrs old so I doubt anyone.

    Fuck that!

    We have to stop hiding from and explaining away the racist evil bullshit people are doing.

    I don't see people killing in the name of ANTIFA and BLM but to hear many those groups are our greatest problem.

    (And yes, I see you put spoiler tags on some pics and that's fine. )

    I'm sure the lady didn't wake up expecting to get her head blown off either.

    Probably not, but I didn't need to see it to know it happened.

    Not explaining away anything. I am just as angry about this as you. Just trying to have some decency even if white supremacists can't.

    I knew you were going to say that.

    Your right she didn't. we can still have some respect for her and her final moments by at least putting a spoiler tag on it, even if she herself didn't get a spoiler.

    There are and will always be moments in time and history that can only be explained through image. Words can not express what is happening.

    So now we want to let people say all the hateful shit they want on the internet but we can't see the direct result of those words?

    What's the difference between that photo and this one?

    [​IMG]

    I remember when Mt St Helens erupted and the outrage over the Oregonian publishing this picture of a dead child.

    [​IMG]

    Sometimes a story can not be told in words alone, sometimes to give the full scope of what happened you have to use other means.

    And 18yr old hunted down and killed innocent people today only based on their race. This story needs to be told in all the means available.

    I don't want to let people get away with that shit at all. We need to do more to stop them. We can still see the pictures. My thoughts are with the people who died and I am just trying to have a modicum of respect.

    People like this are ignorant or are defending it by pretending it doesn't exist. Sad.

    Yes. Even white people aren't safe from white supremacists. They are dangerous people.

    He probably thought she was Jewish or she was just a opportunistic target.

    Hell, I just went to the market cause it's family movie night. Went to get some snacks. The whole time I was in there, the shooting was in the back of my mind. I was thinking a shooter could come in and what to do if it happened.

    Didn't you do mass shooting drills in your kindergarten classes last week? They were at my GD's school last week.

    A picture is worth a thousand words....without them people could erase historic atrocities and shrug them off as fake news....burn the photos of lynchings and KKK rallies or cops beating civil rights protestors....if you want all this weaponry you have to deal with the after effects of what they can do in real time. If you can watch Hannibal Lechter eat Ray Liottas brain on film...you can handle a shot of a mass killing......the photos of the concentration camps in Germany and Poland were proof that it wasn't "fakefuckingnews"....if we're not careful the assholes will take an eraser to all their bad behavior throughout history and then say "prove it" when called out for genocide. Sort of like glossing over the Native American trail of tears.

    No. We don't do those in headstart. We do lockdown and lockout drills. Is that what you mean?

    Pretty damned sad, schools have to do thought at all.

    I get that and agree. Not trying to erase anything. Just trying to have some respect for the dead.

    Holding their executioners accountable is a good start I'd say in the respecting the dead world....JFK was photographed
