    EXCLUSIVE: Buffalo supermarket gunman who killed 10 aimed his gun at wounded manager as he cowered between two cash registers before holding fire and saying 'sorry' when he realized he was WHITE
    • Tops Friendly supermarket manager Christopher Braden was hit in the leg after alleged gunman Payton Gendron, 18, opened fire at the Buffalo store Saturday
    • Wearing military gear and a helmet camera to livestream the massacre, Gendron shot 11 black people and two white people in the rampage before surrendering
    • A total of 10 were killed, with the oldest victim aged 86 and youngest aged 20
    • Livestreamed footage obtained by DailyMail.com shows the suspect aiming his semi-automatic rifle at Braden, 55, who is hiding between two registers
    • Braden can be heard screaming 'no' and covering his face as he prepares to die, before the shooter stops short of pulling the trigger and says 'sorry'
    • 'It's because he was white – there is literally no other explanation. The kid knew what he was doing,' friend and neighbor Sue Trala told DailyMail.com
    • Braden is currently in the hospital with a shattered tibia and is expected to get a visit from Joe Biden Tuesday when the president travels to meet survivors

    Like 12+ years ago when I played WoW I played arena with this priest I met, he lives in Taiwan. We played often and became friends. Neither of us play anymore, and haven’t played for years. But we are still friends and talk every so often.

    Point being… People from Taiwan are chill. Why would someone hate Taiwan? It doesn’t make sense…

    Idiots…

    The issues between China and Taiwan are that China doesn’t respect Taiwan at all. So you’d pretty much have to be Pro-China to be Anti-Taiwan.

    Still doesn’t make sense to me. Not that targeting people racially or geographically in violence with stereotypes ever makes sense.

    These idiots need to understand that you can’t stop progression. The majority of the world agrees that it’s time people start becoming increasingly equal to one another.

    These people abuse their privilege because they can’t handle the thought of what they see as a demotion of themselves; when the truth is equality isn’t a demotion of those with privilege, it’s a promotion for those who have lacked it.

    In absolutely no way does going and murdering people cause those who support equality to say “oh, maybe they have a point”. On the contrary it just highlights what is wrong and increases desire for events like this not to occur.

    It’s for this very reason that idiots who do things like this just end up hurting their chances at what they want to see becoming a reality.

    His name was Chou...from Vegas...american Chinese probably with Mainland Chinese or Hong Kong Cantonese family connections....the old school Kuomintang party Taiwanese were along with Chiang Kai Shek and Sun Yat Sen considered traitors...the mainlanders look at Taiwanese as North Koreans look at South Koreans or Qanon whack jobs look at liberals..the folks he shot were seniors from that era probably. Guy was an asshole. These Uber nationalists who want their empires back are scary in the modern world. Russia, China

    Arizona state senator Wendy Rogers, white supremacist and Putin admirer, has claimed, obviously without evidence, the shooter was FBI to make white people look racist. Or something.

    Lady, it doesn't take the Feds to make white people look racist.

    "The 'rona made me racist!"

    Buffalo shooter's family claim he murdered 10 people due to COVID: Relatives say suspect, 18, snapped at supermarket because of his paranoia and isolation during the pandemic
    • Friends and relatives of the Gendron family say they never saw any warning signs that 18-year-old Payton Gendron was about to snap
    • Cousins have suggested that isolation and paranoia during the pandemic may have contributed to a downfall in his mental health
    • Cousins have denied knowing about Gendron's alleged racist leanings, but did say that the teenager was 'very smart' but that the family were 'normal'
    • Wearing military gear and a helmet camera to livestream the massacre, Gendron shot 11 black people and two white people in the rampage before surrendering
    • A total of 10 were killed, with the oldest victim aged 86 and youngest aged 20

    'I have no idea how he could have gotten caught up in this. I blame it on COVID,' said a cousin of Gendron's mother, Sandra Komoroff, 68, said to the New York Post.

    'He was very paranoid about getting COVID, extremely paranoid, to the point that — his friends were saying — he would wear the hazmat suit [to school],' she said.

    'And then he got COVID just a few weeks ago. … He went to family functions with a respirator mask on. He totally wasn't going to get COVID — and then he got COVID.

    Komoroff said the family were 'were vaxxed to the max.'

    'I don't know if it was a bad case, I just know he caught it.,' she added noting that the teen 'bought into the fear of COVID.'

    Husband, 68-year-old Dave Komoroff, also suggested that Gendron may have developed 'lizard brain' which controls aggression.

    'I can't say it's impossible, but maybe that would happen one out of so many millions of times.'

    How many millions felt isolated? Some acquired pets, ate too much, knitted sweaters. Watched a lot of streaming service. How many wrote n word on an automatic weapon and drove long distance to kill others based on skin color? Him.
    His manifesto, incidentally, claims only Christians are really white. And presumably the only real Americans.
