Oh sure, been there done that, and I was getting ready to play Taps. I re-started my account on DU and was perplexed by all the changes. It did not appear to me that DU would ever be a substitute. It feels like trying to have a conversation in the main hall of Grand Central Terminal at 6 PM.

I haven't posted to the DU for a long, long time mainly because I don't like the format of their site.

I like browsing the news on DU and sometimes I borrow their graphics. They have a couple of very talented graphics makers there.

... I hate posting there because I view their discussion formatting software as nauseous ... you basically only know who's responding to whom via indentation. Feh.

I prefer MB software like this board uses. I mulled over finally starting a posting account at DU after this site went down, but I was only going to bite the bullet if it didn't come back. I'm glad I didn't have to.

The only other thing I will say is DU can get very vomit-inducing during primary season -- I really hated what happened to it in 2016 -- I really would hate to see a repeat of it in 2020. The dynamics won't be the same, so I don't see it becoming the Hillary-hatefest it did for many months. (I mean, she's not running; but I'm just saying "something like that".)

Texas police officer shoots woman to death inside her home

A Fort Worth police officer checking out a residence with an open door opened fire on a woman inside her home, killing her, authorities said.

The shooting early Saturday occurred less than two weeks after a police officer in nearby Dallas was found guilty of murder for fatally shooting a man in his home in 2018. In both cases the officers are white and the victims were African American.

Not a mass shooting, but a conservative fantasy video of Donald Trump mass-murdering people at the wrong kind of church.

Macabre Video of Fake Trump Shooting Media and Critics Is Shown at His Resort - NYT
WASHINGTON — A video depicting a macabre scene of a fake President Trump shooting, stabbing and brutally assaulting members of the news media and his political opponents was shown at a conference for his supporters at his Miami resort last week, according to footage obtained by The New York Times.

Several of Mr. Trump’s top surrogates — including his son Donald Trump Jr., his former spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis — were scheduled to speak at the three-day conference, which was held by a pro-Trump group, American Priority, at Trump National Doral Miami. Ms. Sanders and a person close Mr. Trump’s son said on Sunday that they did not see the video at the conference.

The video, which includes the logo for Mr. Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, comprises a series of internet memes. The most violent clip shows Mr. Trump’s head superimposed on the body of a man opening fire inside the “Church of Fake News” on parishioners who have the faces of his critics or the logos of media organizations superimposed on their bodies. It appears to be an edited scene of a church massacre from the 2014 dark comedy film “Kingsman: The Secret Service.”

The disclosure that the video was played shows how Mr. Trump’s anti-media language has influenced his supporters and bled into their own propaganda. Mr. Trump has made attacks on the news media a mainstay of his presidency, and he tweeted a similar — but far less violent video — in 2017. In recent weeks as he has confronted impeachment proceedings, he has ramped up his attacks on the news media, repeatedly calling it the “enemy of the people.”

A person who attended the conference last week took a video of the clip on his phone and had an intermediary send it to a reporter for The Times. Parts of the video were posted on YouTube in 2018 by a user with a history of creating pro-Trump mash-ups.

The organizer of the event said in a statement on Sunday that the clip had been played at the conference, saying it was part of a “meme exhibit.” He denounced the video and said his organization was looking into how it was shown at the event.

“Content was submitted by third parties and was not associated with or endorsed by the conference in any official capacity,” said the organizer, Alex Phillips. “American Priority rejects all political violence and aims to promote a healthy dialogue about the preservation of free speech. This matter is under review.”
The video is as disgusting and genocidal as the Trump base. They do this sort of thing in the middle of what all of Planet Earth knows is an actual massacre of Kurds by the innkeeper at Trump Tower Istanbul. :evil:

Stop calling the cops on us.

Trump has retweeeted videos of that nature before, like him supposedly beating up or ramming into someone whose head has been replaced with "CNN".

Anyway, that conference at his Doral resort, American Priority, was attended by Don Jr., SHSanders, and Matt Gaetz, organized by the Geo Group which is a private prisons firm, and had your usual whack job con luminaries from Turning Point USA and groups like that.

BTW, the video of Agent Orange shooting journalists essentially is an edited version of the church massacre clip from Kingsmen: Secret Service. If you remember how full of blood and mayhem that scene was --- this is what they used to create that clip.

That would be in poor taste at any time, but maybe especially after a number of recent mass shootings of journalists in the real world.

GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) — A gunman opened fire at an off-campus college party in Texas, leaving two people dead and 12 others injured before he escaped in the ensuing chaos, authorities said Sunday.

Authorities believe the shooter may have been targeting just one person at the party of about 750 people outside Greenville, 15 miles (24 kilometers) southwest of a satellite campus of the Texas A&M University System, and that others may have been shot at random, Hunt County Sheriff Randy Meeks said. Authorities were still looking for the suspect, Meeks said, and had not yet identified him.

Shooting at a decrepit market in a decrepit part of North Hollywood, multiple victims, and with half of California in various states of disaster that's all I know.

Added 10/29:

The shooting was a gun battle between the employer and whoever, and an Armenian gang that was extorting the store for large sums of money. Per mainstream media stories. Footage exists of one person returning fire from behind a parked car. He's blasting away, just like in gangster movies.

4 killed in mass shooting at Halloween party in Northern California

Orinda, Calif. — Four people are dead and others are wounded after gunfire erupted at a large Halloween party outside an Orinda home late Thursday night, according to authorities, CBS San Francisco reported. Orinda police confirmed early Friday that four died in the shooting outside a large home on a quiet street nestled in the Orinda Hills.

Orinda police chief David Cook told the East Bay Times the shooting took place outside a short-term rental. When officers arrived, Cook said, they found a party with more than 100 people in attendance.

This shooting apparently put AirBnB into CYA mode. It's about time, because anyone in big CA cities knows that a lot of these short term rentals get used on a regular basis for open parties publicized on social media. These repeating disturbances have been known to ruin whole neighborhoods.

Made it all the way to the BBC:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-50276485" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
CEO Brian Chesky said in a tweet the company would take steps to "combat unauthorized parties and get rid of abusive host and guest conduct".

...

Mr Chesky said Airbnb would create a dedicated "party house" rapid response team and expand manual screening of high-risk reservations. The company, which is expected to float on the stock market in 2020, would also take action against users who violated its policies, he said.

Man found guilty of killing 10-month-old Xy’Ahir Davis in Marrero shooting

A Jefferson Parish jury deliberated for about two hours Thursday before convicting Jonathan Manuel of second-degree murder in the shooting death of 10-month-old Xy’Ahir “Nemo” Davis, who died in a hail of bullets fired by two men who stormed a Marrero home in 2016.

Manuel, 30, of Harvey was also found guilty of attempted second-degree murder and two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

Supreme Court will allow Sandy Hook families to move forward in suit against gunmaker Remington

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court said Tuesday that it will not hear a closely watched case against gunmaker Remington, a move the company has warned could potentially increase the liability of firearm manufacturers to suits brought by victims of gun crimes.

The court’s action will allow the family members of children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary school massacre to move forward with their lawsuit. The shooting left 20 children and six adults dead.

Definitely a new school scooting. Shooter was a male Asian dressed in black, ~15 YO, likely a student there. ~4 hit by gunfire, 2 critical, one dead. ~3 injured in general panic. Shooter was pursued into a nearby house, surrounded by LASD SWAT, at which point he shot himself.

Edit to update the situation and fix all the typos I made on my phone.

All the information we were given was inaccurate with regard to casualty counts and the status of the shooter. The LASD presser changed everything. I am too disgusted to pass the new information and have it be wrong again. Forget it. I'm 2200 miles east of wretched SoCal, and Thai food beckons.

T&P are no doubt rolling in even as we speak. I know this cycle only too well.
