This Oregon gunman seems to be a piece of work
« on: October 02, 2015, 12:23:26 pm »
So, according to the BBC, he was a self-described "conservative Republican" who supported the IRA (note: Sinn Fein are democratic socialists) who used the handle "Ironcross45" on the internet frequently (for those of you unfamiliar with Nazi paripenalia, the Iron Cross was a military decoration given out by the Second German Reich and Nazis...I'm sure you can decode what the 45 refers to).

And to top it all off, he appears to have previously attended a school for people with behavioural problems.

In other words, a typical Oregon boy.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Any word on the South Dakota issue?

Two school shootings in one day.  America is just showing off, now.

Portland as compared to the rest of Oregon is sort of like the Egyptian national museum surrounded by ISIS.  It boggles my mind that this sort of thing hasn't happened before.

Not much.  I suspect due to his age there's a bit more restraint on digging into his personal life.  That or he just got overshadowed by events in Oregon. 

Found a Facebook page that is almost certainly, but there doesn't seem to be much past 2011 that is publically viewable.

Based on statements given by the school, it may have been personal.  It appears Buhl had broken some rule (unspecified) and was due to meet with the principal about it at the time the shooting occured.

We had a mall shooter a couple of years ago.

Same thing, or just a maniac?

I guess I'm failing to recognize the distinction between the two.

One thinks his beliefs justify violent action.

One thinks Barney Rubble is giving him instructions.

I had no idea there were two yesterday until just now. All eyes seemed to be on Oregon from what I was seeing last night, but that was my search criteria.

I had a thought, in another thread.

And I fear that I am becoming prone to trying to think about the shooter's mental state, rather than howling for his blood like a proper American.

That's the thing, I think. People don't want to think too hard about the mind of a killer, lest they find that they can actually empathize level with them on some level. It's easier, more comforting, to have villains and heroes, black and white.

And people don't want to think about how our society is an environment that keeps producing these people. Nope, easier to just listen to the talking heads argue about gun control and security in schools.
