This doesn't make any sense. This isn't a male and isn't even white.

The Shooter was a Youtube content creator and was getting upset about her videos getting de monitized

https://www.nbcbayarea.com/news/loca...478711713.html

I have seen how badly Youtube screws content creators and what not so this doesn't surprise me.

Very interesting....

So not a male, not white, not the NRA, in a gun free zone inside a basically gun free state (3rd highest gun control laws in the nation).... oh and not an ar15....

And she killed herself when confronted...

I'm really extra interested in her case, because she's such an outlier in almost every respect.

And especially so because this was apparently over a business decision, and not a domestic dispute as was originally reported.

Yeah, it's definitely unique.

First thought was it was some angry commenter coming home to roost.

Then we found out she was a woman, so "domestic."

Quite different.

You can check out her website here: www.nasimesabz.com

She's pretty detailed in exactly what her problem is there. Just scroll down.

yep. not white,or a male... so i guess the news networks don't cover it, or at least not wall to wall coverage.

What's sadly goofy was that just hours before, there was a hashtag 'love a muslim' going around twitter that vanished rather fast as soon as the name was announced.

What I didn't know was that California has some of the stricter gun laws around. Banning automatic rifles may not solve ALL violence problems, but it should keep the mass death down dramatically. stupid NRA.

oh, and in other news..all those kids that thought they could make a living off of youtube ad revenue for life. time to get a real job kiddos and actually do some work.

Automatic weapons have been banned since 1986.

The whole topic of narratives is pretty interesting, and statement from the trauma surgeon attending has gotten a little media play.

http://wtvr.com/2018/04/03/trauma-su...-gun-violence/

Quote:
Campbell said gun violence is a problem in the United States that needs to be addressed. He also chided the media for not paying attention to other instances of gun violence.

“Gun violence happens every day throughout the United States. It happens here in San Francisco. It happens in the Bay Area. It happens all over the country,” Campbell said. “But I don’t see you guys out here, because I’d like to make sure that people know that we got a serious problem that we need to address.”

I'm having trouble finding any stories saying conclusively that the shooter is dead. Are we sure she's dead?

I only ever hear bad things about YouTube. I wonder if this incident could have been avoided if content creators had more support such as a union? I recently heard about the internet creators guild. I’m curious if the shooter had contacted them for any type of support.

I actually had no idea Youtube de-monetized "smaller" channels until this. That's really sheisty, and even more lofty is the rationale they give as to why.

Yeah, they raised the number of views or followers or whatever you have to have to get paid. I remember hearing about that awhile back...
