    What we know about the El Paso shooting suspect

    August 3, 2019 / 8:00 PM / CBS News

    A suspect was taken into custody in connection with a Saturday shooting that left at least 20 people dead and 26 wounded in an El Paso shopping complex. A law enforcement source identified the shooting suspect as Patrick Crusius of Allen, Texas.

    The source told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton the suspect was considered "a troubled youth" and described as a loner. Authorities are treating a document allegedly written by the gunman as evidence.

    The document was shared on 4Chan, an online forum where users can post anonymously. In it, the suspect denounces Hispanic people in Texas, cites concerns about losing American jobs to automation and criticizes both political parties. The text includes a reference to the Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand, which left 51 people dead.

    If anyone thinks that's a "leftist", then we've identified the problem. White nationalist, not fond of either party.
    Ok, so how is that going to be of use in preventing future attacks?

    I'm waiting to see if his manifesto is declared to be genuine, because it's damning not only to him but to his racist right-wing apologists.
    Trump admitted it, doing a quick 180 WRT white nationalism:
    “The shooter in El Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate," the president said. "In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy."

    BTW - Republican State Rep. Candice Keller blames the shootings on gay marriage, transgender people, video games and former President Obama, the legalization of marijuana, protest by pro athletes, and snowflakes.

    Yeah, video games. That's the ticket. Has to be video games. What a moron.

    It's worth noting that hacking his account, and doing so rather openly, was counterproductive if "leftists" (in this case, people opposed to mass murder) did it. It allows some to use it as a distraction. The important thing is that the shooter posted his intentions and motivations on 8chan (Warning: don't go there, if you don't want to be sickened and repulsed) Just before the attacks.

    Apparently, Donald Trump is going to Ohio to console the people there.

    I can see him showing up in Toledo, and asking "where is everyone?"

    Ok

    So what do we do with that to prevent the next one?

    He used to be amusing. Now, he's predictable and repetitive. Nothing more pathetic than a troll off his game.

    In fact, the shooter's registration wasn't on his profile, but here's something he liked from Twitter:


    https://www.newsweek.com/who-el-paso-shooter-1452468

    Saw this elsewhere:
    SHOOTER: I was inspired by trump.

    MEDIA: what could have caused this?

    SHOOTER: look at this cool photo of the word “trump” spelled out in firearms

    MEDIA: he probably played too much fortnite

    SHOOTER: it’s like trump said, Hispanics are invading us

    MEDIA: we may never know
