Beer distributor shooting.....

Press says nothing about the victims.  It's all about the "racism" that drove the shooter to kill.  Racism seems to be the word this year that is supposed to keep liberals elected.  I think it's going to backfire.  I hope it backfires.

Re: Beer distributor shooting.....

Your press, and indeed your society, is hung up on racism. Probably because there is so much in your country.

Anyway our news talked about 9 victims and how the shooter was being escorted out of the workplace after being accused of stealing beer when he pulled a handgun and started shooting.

They did mention that the shooter had claimed he was/or had been discrimintated against because of his race but it was a small part of the story.

Different country, different media, different society?

Why is there so much evil in the world? I thought man is good. Why all the evil?

I'm not hung up on racism.  I'm sick of it.  What is going on now in our country is only going to cause more of it.

Re: Beer distributor shooting.....

Our press likes to hype racism to help boost their ratings.  I think the 24/7 news media has been a big boost in all the recent talk of racism in our country and especially in politics.  

 

The news cast I saw on TV said the shooter claimed racism on the job after he was fired for stealing and said he had lodged complaints of racism at work before but it did no good.  The shooter claimed race was involved in his firing even though management had surveillance video showing him stealing on the job.   News said fellow employees, management, and the union all said they were unaware of any racism at work and that the shooter had never filed any complaints previously.   Tis a sad day all around.

Re: Beer distributor shooting.....

The only proven racist in the story was the cold-blooded killer. Since the victims were all white, I wonder if any of the police forces are expecting any rioting and looting???
