Shooting at Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland

Quote:
"(CNN)Multiple people were shot at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland, a reporter at the newspaper said.

There were multiple injuries and fatalities, two law enforcement sources told CNN.
One person is in custody who is believed to be a shooter at the Gazette building, a law enforcement official told CNN.

hil Davis, a Gazette reporter, tweeted the "gunman shot through the glass door to the office."
The gunman opened fire on multiple employees, Davis said.
"There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload," he said.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan said he was "absolutely devastated to learn of this tragedy in Annapolis."
Anne Arundel police said they are responding to an active shooter at an Annapolis building. Police have evacuated the building where the shooting occurred, authorities said.

The ATF and FBI said they are also responding to a shooting at that location.
The Capital Gazette is owned by The Baltimore Sun.

Somebody angry at the "fake news", no doubt.

Let's wait and see. I mean, why would anyone attack a newsroom out of the blue?

We've had fake news literally as long as we've had news, period. Why are people coming out of the woodwork with violent acts against what they perceive to be it? Just because the president decided he wanted to pretend to stand against it?

Aren't most of these "lone wolves" politically motivated?

The shooter shot through the door, so clearly doors should be armed.

Because society/people are stupid.

1. Trump calls the media “the enemy” and the “greatest threat to the country.”

2. 48 hours ago Milo Yiannopoulos says a vigilante should begin shooting & killing journalists.

3. Today that very thing happened.

What a coincidence

Wait what? Is he even allowed to say that in public? Isn't he basically inciting murder?

We've had lies before, but Fake News is new.
Also new, an administration that consistently seeks to undermine the First Amendment.

Quote:
Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
I would say that lone wolves are politically motivated, but others would merely point out that they're just mentally ill.

Nope, because we have a Schrodinger's Douchebag in play

Milo Yiannopoulos: My call for shooting journalists was just a 'troll'.

I would say that if he didn't say his private comment to the journalist wasn't on the record, then it wasn't a troll, but a threat.
But that's just me.

I mean, someone who suddenly snaps one day without any political motivations would probably just shoot someone close to them like a relative or shoot up their next door café other than going to a place like a newsroom, I'm guessing? Shooting up a place like that will definitely get you media attention more easily.

No it isn't. The term isn't even new. It's just gained popularity.

Here's an image from 1894 with it written.

Cripes that's pathetic.

So someone can get away with death threats in court if they tell the judge "it's a ****ing prank, bro."?

You have to get to court first, and someone like that chucklef*ck would settle long before he'd get before a judge. Drop a bunch of cash to just make the problem go away.

I wonder how much money the likes of Milo Yannipoulos and Richard Spencer have made already. Their shtick seems pretty profitable.
