The father of the man who opened fire and killed five people across Seattle and later killed himself after a citywide manhunt, says his son was a very private person who was "disgruntled" and had been a frequent customer of the coffee shop where his rampage began.

six dead, shooter was killed

A police officer who is a 20-year law enforcement veteran responded to multiple 911 calls about the shooting and came upon a gunman outstide the temple. The officer was shot multiple times, Wendlandt said. The officer returned fire, striking and killing the gunman. The wounded officer was taken to a hospital where he was undergoing surgery.

Really bugging me that CNN keeps having talking heads explaining how Sikhs differ from Muslims and how the casual visual similarity to the uninitiated leads to Sikhs being "unfairly targeted for violence."

Like, opposed to the totally legit targeting of Muslims in the US? Fuck you guys.

yeah was thinking the same thing, "these ppl were shot and they ~weren't even Muslim~", so fucking gross

"I just want to say this temple was built a number of years ago and there have never been any problems with this temple," Oak Creek Alderman Dan Jakubczyk said. "They've been a plus to this city and to my district."

never.been.any.problems.

repeal 2nd amendment

am0n, Sunday, 5 August 2012 22:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

i guess the 2nd amendment folks will tell us we should be bringing our guns to church..

instead of ceremonial knives sikhs should carry guns

^cant wait for all the inevitable iterations of that joke over the next week or two

motive?

the late great, Sunday, 5 August 2012 23:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

racism, presumably, but who knows

catbus otm (gbx), Sunday, 5 August 2012 23:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

it was a white shooter?

there has been intense sikh-on-sikh violence in the past in the bay area although generally involving melee and not guns

the late great, Sunday, 5 August 2012 23:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

White, by all accounts. The suspect's home has been investigated, presumably some form of initial announcement will be made tonight.

I will cop to feeling vaguely *guilty* when Sikhs and other brown non-Muslims were targeted for hate speech/crimes immediately following September 11th until a Muslim friend pointed out how fucked up this was.

I was driving all day and public radio played a tearful interview with a family member of the founder of the temple. It was hard to listen to.

can't they make it law that if you want to have a gun you have to be in the nat'l guard or something?

the late great, Monday, 6 August 2012 00:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

then all the crazies who want guns would just join the national guard. and then they'd all meet. and they'd be ORGANIZED. brb gonna go write a novel.

contender's game (some dude), Monday, 6 August 2012 00:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

that would hew a lot closer to the 2nd A's literal meaning

smells like ok (soda) (dayo), Monday, 6 August 2012 00:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

true

contender's game (some dude), Monday, 6 August 2012 00:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

that's fine. it's not like joining the guard is getting a library card?

the late great, Monday, 6 August 2012 00:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

hell, we could give you a gov't issued gun if you're in the guard, w/ a serial # and a gps

the late great, Monday, 6 August 2012 00:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

when i hear the phrase "national guard" i reach for my kent_state.jpg

yeah remember when four dead in ohio was news

I used to work about 5 miinutes drive from the temple.

Never bumped into as much casual racism anywhere as living in Milwaukee, not in the deep south.

Josiah Alan, Monday, 6 August 2012 01:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

my friend from madison area (i think) is dating a girl from pakistan and for a second i had to reassure myself they weren't sikhs (?)

anyway when i was in bayfield everyone treated me like royalty

the late great, Monday, 6 August 2012 01:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

i understand bayfield is not totally representative of the state

the late great, Monday, 6 August 2012 01:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

My impression of Milwaukee was a couple of desperately poor ghettos surrounded by extremely conservative suburbs. Scott Walker got his start in Waukesha, which is pretty close to Oak Creek.

Josiah Alan, Monday, 6 August 2012 01:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

milwaukee was pretty crucial in russ feingold's defeat iirc

k3vin k., Monday, 6 August 2012 02:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

so, basically every city in america? xp

smells like ok (soda) (dayo), Monday, 6 August 2012 02:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

Except its especially bad there, almost all the suburbs used to be sundown towns.

And there parts of the North side that look third world, like Detroit only more concentrated.

yeah my friend from chicago said it starts to turn into rust belt over that way

Rust belt surrounded by Maybury basically.

This is a city that has a contractual stipulation for teachers that they have to live in the city limits, otherwise virtually none of them would. One of the hardest drinking cities in the country too.
