Meh - it was a bomb threat, not an actual shooting. Being a heartless asshole is not mutually exclusive to the US.

Sounds like the suspect was apprehended after law enforcement put their lives on the line.

Sad to say that some were shot and might have been killed in the process.

Sad that I’m angry in general that I feel as though in my homes where mass shootings have happened, it felt like law enforcement abandoned my people.

Sad... sad because that’s not fair. It might be their job. It might be their job to die, like a war zone. But it shouldn’t have to be. Going on a violent killing spree shouldn’t be so easy.

Worker who was reportedly being fired, killed 4 coworkers, including an intern who was on his first day on the job.

4 in custody, this wasn’t a lone wolf, it was an organized terrorist attack. White supremacy is dangerous.

I don’t want jump to conclusions as to why the others were arrested, I’ve only heard about this one evil POS. Not even clear that he was arrested but I think that’s assumed. Have you heard why with the three others?

I had the unfortunate experience of having accidentally stumbled upon what I did not realize was the shooter’s video of the shooting. It’s horrifying. Someone tackled him but unfortunately did not make it.

How people can have so much hate in them is beyond me. Disgusting and so disheartening and sad.

Things in which I am absolutely not interested: Christchurch being subsumed in some American narrative.

Start a different thread. I'm absolutely broken.

Kia kaha.

What awful news to wake up to. The shooter was Australian? Haven’t yet had much time to read the details but terrible all around.

I hope people are reporting the video links so they can all be removed.

Shocking and devastating. I don't know what else to say other than I'm so sorry.

I've heard that the police are asking people not to share that footage and it disturbs me to no end that they actually have to tell people that.

It's not just people, I just came across it on a legitimate news site (foreign), the article was discussing the song playing on the radio in the LiveStream and there was the video right there.

White supremacy has no borders, especially not now in the age of the Internet. This is an infuriating act, not only because of all of the ridiculous gymnastics right wingers are going through in response, but also because of how obvious it is that the proliferation of these viewpoints on social media would result in this. This is not going to stop anywhere until deplatforming becomes the norm, and as long as there is money in catering to these lunatics, that is not going to happen.
