Another mass shooter on the FBI’s radar has struck, this time killing 8 at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis.
According to a report by Reuters, the mother of accused attacker Brandon Scott Hole had contacted the police in March 2020 after learning that her 19-year-old son wanted to commit “suicide by cop.” The FBI was then brought into the case.
According to Indianapolis Special Agent in Charge Paul Keenan, the FBI interviewed Hole in April of last year, with a focus on his political beliefs rather than his potential mental health crisis or intent to commit criminal acts. When they realized he had no pro-white, or “Racially Motivated Violent Extremist” (RMVE) beliefs, they lost interest in him and apparently did not follow up on his condition. Local authorities were able to confiscate his weapons for mental health reasons and it is not clear how he obtained the firearms used in the shooting.
Of the 105 mass shootings so far in 2021 with a known suspect, the overwhelming majority were conducted by non-white suspects. None of the perpetrators this year have had a white “RMVE” motive.
The FBI and Department of Justice appear to be impervious to facts, however. This week FBI Director Christopher Wray decided to insert himself on the side of political censorship by claiming that social media is “amplifying domestic extremism.”
The FBI’s focus on political ideology over potential for crime and violence has played a major role in the proliferation of mass shootings. While the FBI in Indianapolis did not pay proper attention to Hole, they repeatedly harassed the family of a young Marine with little predicate during the same time frame because they didn’t like his political beliefs.
As journalist Cassandra Fairbanks and others have noted, the FBI has also burned countless resources arresting and prosecuting hundreds of people for peacefully entering and leaving the Capitol on January 6th.
If federal law enforcement’s resources are tied up in left-wing virtue signaling, it goes without saying that real criminals get through the cracks.
Because some of the victims in Indianapolis are Sikhs and the shooter is a young white man, the media is desperately trying to manufacture a racial motive.
US media believes nationalist political beliefs are worse than murder. A recent Project Veritas report captured a producer at CNN admitting that the news channel emphasizes the race of white shooters while hiding the race of non-white criminals in order to create a false narrative painting white people as violent terrorists. Veritas journalist James O’Keefe was quickly banned from social media after releasing the story.
Thanks in part to the Anti-Defamation League, the FBI has no interest in examining how they use their resources, and whether their emphasis on right-wing political ideology has any law enforcement value. In the end, America’s ruling class has more interest in stifling legitimate political activism against its corruption and ineptitude than keeping ordinary citizens safe.
