From the Denver Post:

Boulder shooting suspect Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa was short-tempered, violent, former teammates say
The 21-year-old Arvada man has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder
Suspected shooter Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa …

By SHELLY BRADBURY | [email protected], CONRAD SWANSON and JOHN MEYER | [email protected] | The Denver Post
PUBLISHED: March 23, 2021 at 11:05 a.m. | UPDATED: March 23, 2021 at 12:00 p.m.

…“He was kind of scary to be around,” said Dayton Marvel, who graduated from Arvada West High School in 2018 and was on the wrestling team with Alissa. Alissa once had an outburst and threatened to kill people during an intra-team match, Marvel said.

“His senior year, during the wrestle-offs to see who makes varsity, he actually lost his match and quit the team and yelled out in the wrestling room that he was like going to kill everybody,” Marvel said. “Nobody believed him. We were just all kind of freaked out by it, but nobody did anything about it.”

He said he did not like spending time with Alissa, and Alissa was not close with anyone on the wrestling team. Another teammate, Angel Hernandez — who lives in Arvada and graduated from Arvada West in 2019 — said Alissa got into a fight in the parking lot after the match.

“(The other wrestler) was just teasing him and goes, ‘Maybe if you were a better wrestler, you would have won.’ (Alissa) just lost it. He started punching him,” Hernandez said.

Hernandez said Alissa frequently appeared to be paranoid about perceived slights against him, and Marvel said Alissa was often concerned about being targeted because of his Muslim faith.

“He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up,” Marvel said. “It was a crazy deal. I just know he was a pretty cool kid until something made him mad, and then whatever made him mad, he went over the edge — way too far.”

“He was always talking about (how) people were looking at him and there was no one ever where he was pointing people out,” Hernandez said. “We always thought he was messing around with us or something.”

In 2017, Alissa, then 18, attacked a classmate at Arvada West High School, according to an affidavit filed in the case. He punched the classmate in the head without warning, and when the boy fell to the ground, Alissa continued to punch him. The classmate suffered bruises and cuts to his head, according to the affidavit.

Witnesses told police they didn’t see or hear any reason for Alissa to attack the classmate. Alissa told officers that the classmate “had made fun of him and called him racial names weeks earlier,” according to the affidavit.

He was convicted of misdemeanor assault in 2018 and was sentenced to two months of probation and 48 hours of community service.

Despite his short temper, Hernandez said Alissa could also be friendly and “joyful.”

“The sad thing about it is that if you really were to get to know him, he was a good guy,” Hernandez said. “Whenever you went up to him, he was always so joyful and so nice. But you could tell there was a dark side in him. If he did get ticked off about something, within a split second, it was like if something takes over, like a demon. He’d just unleash all his anger.”

Arvada Police Detective Dave Snelling confirmed Tuesday the local department had at least two interactions with Alissa over the past several years including a case of criminal mischief. …

… Alissa purchased a Ruger AR-556 pistol seven days before the attack, according to a police affidavit released Tuesday.

On a Facebook page that appeared to belong to Alissa, the user posted in 2019 that he believed his former high school was hacking his cell phone. In a comment to someone who asked why the school would do that, he blamed racism.

“I believe part racism for sure,” he replied. “I believe someone spread rumors about me which are false and maybe that set it off.”

    No they won't. They'll memory-hole his name five minutes after they ride him all the way to a rescinded or rewritten 2A.

    Tonight I learned that Susan Rice, lifelong Swamp critter and sworn enemy of the white middle class, quadrupled her net worth during Trump's four years in office. When she opens her mouth, anti-capitalist jibber jibber spills forth. But not so much that she's ever letting go of the $149 million she got by riding Donnie's amazing stock market.

    That's right- $149 million. Even for a lifelong toiler in the "public service" vineyards, that's mind-boggling. And when I heard that, I knew they're all in on killing the Bill of Rights dead. All of them. See, just because you can't legally buy or own a gun has no effect whatsoever on the private arsenal she and the rest of the Bolshevik scum maintain at all times - just like draconian tax hikes, and skyrocketing oil/gas/electricity, will ensure YOU freeze in the winter and bake in the summer. But her? Them?

    Would you bother to change the setting to ENERGY SAVER, or sully your badass ride with anything lesser than Premium, with $150 million in your kitty? Don't be ridiculous. Like the rest of her unspeakable kind, she'll just lie and say she does. Like designer mummy Pelosi, and evil Queen Hillary, she'll spoon another mouthful of designer gelato while killing herself laughing at your death rattle as free-range Negroes hop your fence and climb in through your broken windows, while your family waits in bug-eyed panic for "cops" who aren't coming.

    I would say not.

    Telling people that your former high school was bugging your phone would be pretty delusional in any culture, but it could be that he suffered from mental illness, but his family shielded him because of the stigma and religious beliefs about mental illness, and didn't want him enrolled in any secular mental health programs.

    There is nothing in the reports that says what he did for a living, so I guess he was working somewhere out of public view at the family restaurant washing dishes or scrubbing pots and lived with his family.

    It could be that restrictions imposed in the era of the pandemic are having an effect on the mentally ill population. If you are paranoid to start with and then are told that you can't do things you used to like doing, then you could become even more paranoid. Maybe he had a bust up with the family, and then ran amok, which certainly IS an oriental cultural phenomenon.

    Yeah, a college friend went schizo shortly after graduation. He thought that people were coming into his apartment because the dust patterns on the incandescent light bulbs were changing. He also thought that people at work were trying to rig up some sort of boobie trap for him in the building. And the addresses on some of his mail misspelled his name in a way that he interpreted as being a message to him, intending harm.

    This guy wasn't violent. On the other hand, bipolar disorder sometimes comes with violence, and bipolar is basically the same condition as schizophrenia in genome-wide association scores, so maybe there can be a comorbidity, both expressing phenotypically.

    Sir L, when you read San Francisco Chronicle or Berkeleyside.com, the libs, which seems to be all Bay Area residents, are still blaming Ronald Reagan for all the homeless (sorry unhoused) zombies roaming the area. Reagan signed the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act in 1967. The Bill, pushed by the ACLU, basically said you can't confine mentally disabled people against their will. The Bill passed with such a majority that it was veto proof. So the argument is Reagan was a Republican and the homeless problem and the zombies were caused by him cutting mental health programs. Totally false and 54 years ago, but it fits the narrative. Oh, and Lanterman was a republican and Petris and Short were dems. Short had been trying to pass same such legislation for years.

    No he's not Italian in any way shape or form. He's from Syria. You are probably right that al-Issa got shortened into Alissa.

    Spelling it "Alissa" also makes it less conspicuously Arab and Muslim than "Al-Issa."

Are there any pictures of the perp practicing at any local gun ranges in the greater Boulder metro area? We have a Syrian Rambo more than capable of shooting and killing 10 people in the space of a few minutes. Are even combat soldiers capable of that type of kill ratio? I could see it if they all just lined up in a row to be shot.

    My question is: Why an AR15? Why not a MasterPiece Arms Defender 9mm Semi-Auto 30rd 4.5" Pistol? Maybe we should ask Diane Feinstein and her Chinese controllers.

    Colorado abolished its seldom-used death penalty on Monday, joining a growing number of states that have eschewed capital punishment as a deterrent to the most serious crimes.

    But there's no need to - there's been a subtle but steady shaming of Whites in the media for decades. It makes Non-Western immigrants feel entitled to lecture Whites, and makes them nurture their sense of alienation & grievance vis a vis the host.

    When did this happen? It looks terrible. It looks like a green cop got scared, freaked out, and acted in an ultimately inexcusable manner. It looks like the black guy deserves at least half a million dollars, if he lived. Much more to the family if he died.

    But I need context in this clip-culture we live in. The infamous Chauvin-Floyd video segment looked horrible--it looked like a demonic white racist cop murdered an unarmed, handcuffed black man. But, as any thinking person now knows, Chauvin is 100 percent innocent and he's the one who deserves massive monetary settlements--for libel. The whole world wants to destroy an innocent working man's life because of what they thought they saw him do.

    So, what was the context here? For instance, was the guy who got shot an escaped mass murderer of cops, by chance? That would be important context, right?

    It could be that what the clip seems to show is exactly what happened--a totally innocent law-abiding black guy was harassed by a white cop (possibly simply for being black) and got shot for jerking around too fast in his attempt to obey an order. But I'll wait for full context before forming any opinion.

    Not that it matters, but it appears that he wasn't using what most people would think of as a pistol but rather an AR-15 style "pistol" with an "arm brace" rather than a stock. Anywhere else this would be called a "short barreled rifle" but short barreled rifles are treated differently under US law and require federal registration and payment of a $200 tax. But if you configure an AR just right, it's legally classified as an unregulated pistol and not a short barrelled rifle.

    basically if there is weapon that is a rifle, but it doesn't have a stock from the factory, the weapon goes into the pistol category for ATF's purposes. you can then put an aftermarket stock on it, and off you go, shooting up the local infidels.

    I would say not.

    Telling people that your former high school was bugging your phone would be pretty delusional in any culture, but it could be that he suffered from mental illness, but his family shielded him because of the stigma and religious beliefs about mental illness, and didn’t want him enrolled in any secular mental health programs.

    There is nothing in the reports that says what he did for a living, so I guess he was working somewhere out of public view at the family restaurant washing dishes or scrubbing pots and lived with his family.

    It could be that restrictions imposed in the era of the pandemic are having an effect on the mentally ill population. If you are paranoid to start with and then are told that you can’t do things you used to like doing, then you could become even more paranoid. Maybe he had a bust up with the family, and then ran amok, which certainly IS an oriental cultural phenomenon.

    Not that it matters, but it appears that he wasn’t using what most people would think of as a pistol but rather an AR-15 style “pistol” with an “arm brace” rather than a stock. Anywhere else this would be called a “short barreled rifle” but short barreled rifles are treated differently under US law and require federal registration and payment of a $200 tax. But if you configure an AR just right, it’s legally classified as an unregulated pistol and not a short barrelled rifle.

    Sir L, when you read San Francisco Chronicle or Berkeleyside.com, the libs, which seems to be all Bay Area residents, are still blaming Ronald Reagan for all the homeless (sorry unhoused) zombies roaming the area. Reagan signed the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act in 1967. The Bill, pushed by the ACLU, basically said you can’t confine mentally disabled people against their will. The Bill passed with such a majority that it was veto proof. So the argument is Reagan was a Republican and the homeless problem and the zombies were caused by him cutting mental health programs. Totally false and 54 years ago, but it fits the narrative. Oh, and Lanterman was a republican and Petris and Short were dems. Short had been trying to pass same such legislation for years. Stay safe.

  49. @Jonathan Mason
    @Jack D

    I would say not.

    Telling people that your former high school was bugging your phone would be pretty delusional in any culture, but it could be that he suffered from mental illness, but his family shielded him because of the stigma and religious beliefs about mental illness, and didn't want him enrolled in any secular mental health programs.

    There is nothing in the reports that says what he did for a living, so I guess he was working somewhere out of public view at the family restaurant washing dishes or scrubbing pots and lived with his family.

    It could be that restrictions imposed in the era of the pandemic are having an effect on the mentally ill population. If you are paranoid to start with and then are told that you can't do things you used to like doing, then you could become even more paranoid. Maybe he had a bust up with the family, and then ran amok, which certainly IS an oriental cultural phenomenon.

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/boulder-colorado-cops-identify-king-soopers-supermarket-massacre-suspect-as-ahmad-alissa?ref=home

    However, as is often the case, the mental illness does not go so far as to make the criminal unable to formulate plans (such as purchasing a gun in advance of the attack) and provide for his own safety (wear body armor). When the SWAT team entered the store, Alissa had stripped down to a pair of shorts so that they could see that he wasn’t carrying a bomb vest and wouldn’t shoot him. That seems pretty clear minded to me.

    So I was right again. Well I never!

    People who suffer from paranoid schizophrenia arewell-known for being quite well organized in their thinking once they get away from the immediate subject of their delusions.

    As a retired lawyer you might be familiar with the McNaughten rules and the fascinating story behind them, which to these days affect the determination of insanity and fitness to plead in many legal jurisdictions.

    I said before that probably the family protected him, because of his mental illness, but in fact he might have been on antipsychotic medication, which could partly explain why he was so overweight at the age of only.

    Olanzapine, which is a popular site antipsychotic these days, is notorious for making people pile on the pounds.

    It seems to be a universal phenomenon that whenever somebody commits a heinous crime, there is a neighbor or acquaintance willing to step forward and speak to journalists to say that the person always seem to completely harmless, though perhaps a little odd.

    However, the general population is hopelessly inadequate at noticing psychiatric disorder unless people are actually talking to themselves in public places.

    basically if there is weapon that is a rifle, but it doesn’t have a stock from the factory, the weapon goes into the pistol category for ATF’s purposes. you can then put an aftermarket stock on it, and off you go, shooting up the local infidels.

    It's generally not a good time to play identity politics. Whether it's a lone nut who shoots up a massage parlor, or a lone nut who shoots up a supermarket, immediately jumping to the conclusion that it's a racial hate crime, or religious terrorism, is unwise.

    The two shooters are more alike than not; and so are the people who jumped to "racist hate crime!" a few days ago, and the people who jumped to "Islamic terrorism!" more recently. They already have their spiels saved for occasions like this, so they don't even have to wait for the facts, which might end up being inconvenient.

    The family said that he is mentally ill and gives more details:

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/boulder-colorado-cops-identify-king-soopers-supermarket-massacre-suspect-as-ahmad-alissa?ref=home

    However, as is often the case, the mental illness does not go so far as to make the criminal unable to formulate plans (such as purchasing a gun in advance of the attack) and provide for his own safety (wear body armor). When the SWAT team entered the store, Alissa had stripped down to a pair of shorts so that they could see that he wasn't carrying a bomb vest and wouldn't shoot him. That seems pretty clear minded to me.

    funny how the death penalty is no deterrent according to liberals, yet almost every one of these shooter guys wants to live, and does anything they can to avoid the death penalty.

    if it was no deterrent, why do these guys always immediately plead guilty to anything the DA wants so they can get life with no parole instead of death row?

    Not that it matters, because this guy was obviously using a pistol
     
    Not that it matters, but it appears that he wasn't using what most people would think of as a pistol but rather an AR-15 style "pistol" with an "arm brace" rather than a stock. Anywhere else this would be called a "short barreled rifle" but short barreled rifles are treated differently under US law and require federal registration and payment of a $200 tax. But if you configure an AR just right, it's legally classified as an unregulated pistol and not a short barrelled rifle.

    Telling people that your former high school was bugging your phone would be pretty delusional in any culture, but it could be that he suffered from mental illness, but his family shielded him because of the stigma and religious beliefs about mental illness, and didn't want him enrolled in any secular mental health programs.

    There is nothing in the reports that says what he did for a living, so I guess he was working somewhere out of public view at the family restaurant washing dishes or scrubbing pots and lived with his family.

    It could be that restrictions imposed in the era of the pandemic are having an effect on the mentally ill population. If you are paranoid to start with and then are told that you can't do things you used to like doing, then you could become even more paranoid. Maybe he had a bust up with the family, and then ran amok, which certainly IS an oriental cultural phenomenon.

It appears, though, that the the black and Asian overrepresentation is relatively minor. The two categories that are massively overrepresented are Middle Easterners – only 0.4% of the population, but 7.6% of the mass shooters, meaning overrepresented by 19x – and American Indians – 1% of the population and 3.8% of the mass shooters.

    Similarly, Christians and Jews are underrepresented while Muslims are vastly overrepresented – 0.8% of the population, yet 9% of the mass shooters or 11.25x the population share.

    Thank you for the data. As a pro-White American who believes that rising heterogeneity poses a long-term existential threat to our civilization, I strongly support a nationwide immigration moratorium--at least from Third World regions. At the same time, it does not surprise me that a Syrian refugee living in America might be full of rage.

    After all, Zionist-friendly Washington has been undermining, subverting, and intermittently bombing Syria for years. Decades.

    Problem is, repeated, unjustified mass killings often make people mad. Crazy mad.

    As a generic, unaffiliated, US-born white guy, it even bugs the shit out of me.

    Obviously, no policies out of Washington--no matter how barbaric--justify the mass murder of innocents. At the same time, does it not interest you that there might be a connection?

    Why does the world's greatest military power find it necessary to repeatedly destabilize/annihilate small and distant Mideast nations? (This is a rhetorical question. Most UNZ readers know precisely WHY.)

    When did this happen? It looks terrible. It looks like a green cop got scared, freaked out, and acted in an ultimately inexcusable manner. It looks like the black guy deserves at least half a million dollars, if he lived. Much more to the family if he died.

    But I need context in this clip-culture we live in. The infamous Chauvin-Floyd video segment looked horrible–it looked like a demonic white racist cop murdered an unarmed, handcuffed black man. But, as any thinking person now knows, Chauvin is 100 percent innocent and he’s the one who deserves massive monetary settlements–for libel. The whole world wants to destroy an innocent working man’s life because of what they thought they saw him do.

    So, what was the context here? For instance, was the guy who got shot an escaped mass murderer of cops, by chance? That would be important context, right?

    It could be that what the clip seems to show is exactly what happened–a totally innocent law-abiding black guy was harassed by a white cop (possibly simply for being black) and got shot for jerking around too fast in his attempt to obey an order. But I’ll wait for full context before forming any opinion.

Instead it increased, and we got guys like this, the San Bernardino terrrorist wife, and the Tsarnaev brothers.”

    The authors of the Second Amendment probably assumed that it would never be held to apply to Negroes or Indians,, since it was connected to militia service and Negroes and Indians didn’t serve in militias.
     
    Apparently, Negroes did participate in militia service in the pre-Bill of Rights era.

    Northern states at various times also enrolled free Negroes in the
    militia despite federal law and often strident prejudice.96 States North and
    South employed free Negroes in state forces during times of invasion.97
    While southern states often prohibited slaves from carrying weapons and
    strictly regulated access to firearms by free Negroes,98 northern states generally made no racial distinction with respect to the right to own firearms,99 and federal law was silent on the subject.

    The racial restriction in the 1792 statute indicates the unrest the revolutionary
    generation felt toward arming blacks and perhaps the recognition
    that one of the functions of the militia would indeed be to put down slave
    revolts. Yet, the widespread use of blacks as soldiers in time of crisis and the
    absence of restrictions concerning the arming of blacks in the northern states
    may provide another clue concerning how to read the Second Amendment.
    The 1792 act specified militia enrollment for white men between the ages of
    eighteen and forty-five. 100 Yet, while it specifically included only this limited
    portion of the population, the statute excluded no one from militia service.

    The authors of the statute had experience, in the Revolution, with a militia
    and Continental Army considerably broad in membership. Older and
    younger men had served with the Revolutionary forces. Blacks had served,
    though their service had been an object of considerable controversy. 1 0 1 Even
    women had served, though, given the attitudes of the day, this was far more
    controversial than black service. Given this experience and the fact that the
    constitutional debates over the militia had constantly assumed an enrollment
    of the male population between sixteen and sixty, it is likely that the framers
    of the 1792 statute envisioned a militia even broader than the one they specified.

    This suggests to us how broad the term "people" in the Second Amendment
    was meant to be.

    When the authors of the Second Amendment were growing up the primary purpose of „bearing arms“ was to defend yourself from Native Americans. The second was to defend yourself from a Negro slave revolt. (Hunters didn’t „bear arms“, it definitely has a military connotation.)

    I don't understand why the definite article is attached like that. It's not what I'd expect (based on my pretty elementary knowledge of Arabic) but I see that the Wikipedia article on Jesus Christ is spelledlike that, with the definite article.

    His middle name must have struck you too, as it looks like the name of the Islamic denomination that includes the Assad family that's ruled Syria since 1970. Comparing the Arabic spelling of "Allawi" with the shooter's middle name, they're not spelled quite the same. They could still be inflections of the same word. Google translates his middle name as "the highest". But "Allawi" comes from the given name Ali which literally means "high".

    So there you have it: Ahmad the Allawi (or "the highest") the Jesus. Explaining that (within the complicated religious context of Syria) is a job for someone who knows more than I do.

    The letter’s signatories — scholars Glenn Loury, John McWhorter, and Shelby Steele among them — express disgust at the way McCartney has handled the situation.

    “Many of us participated in the Civil Rights Movement, fighting for equal treatment under the law, which included due process and the presumption of innocence,” they write. “We didn’t march so that Americans of any race could be presumed guilty and punished for false accusations while the elite institution that employed them cowered in fear of a social media mob. We certainly didn’t march so that privileged Blacks could abuse working class whites based on ‘lived experience.’”

    The letter also questions McCartney for a recent February letter she wrote to the Smith community, in which she stated that “our commitment to, and strategies for, advancing equity and inclusion are grounded in evidence.”

    “Have you gathered any verifiable evidence of success from the ‘antibias’ training you forced your service employees to undergo as a condition of their employment?” the letter asks. “Please consider that many Black Americans find training that reduces us simply to a racial category profoundly condescending and dehumanizing.”

For them to stand up for those working-class Smith employees -- whose jobs and reputations were taken away in unseemly haste because of some spoiled African brat's concocted complaints -- is commendable. They'll catch a lot of flak from the mau-maus at their respective institutions, but they're probably used to that by now. Plus, they have tenure, and are not so easily cancelled.

    Others, of course, intend to die as a part of their murder spree.

    Frankly, I’d like to see the punishment fit the crime. Death by firing squad.

    Not that it matters, because this guy was obviously using a pistol
     
    Not that it matters, but it appears that he wasn't using what most people would think of as a pistol but rather an AR-15 style "pistol" with an "arm brace" rather than a stock. Anywhere else this would be called a "short barreled rifle" but short barreled rifles are treated differently under US law and require federal registration and payment of a $200 tax. But if you configure an AR just right, it's legally classified as an unregulated pistol and not a short barrelled rifle.

    This picture makes it all clear (as mud):

    The report I read stated the shooter had left his pistol with his body armor in the store. My error for assuming accuracy.

    Now I see that he may have had a carbine, or “patrol rifle”. Not that it matters, the usual suspects from Schumer on down the hate train are once again dancing in the blood of victims.

    One year ago today:

    March 23, 2020
    Colorado abolished its seldom-used death penalty on Monday, joining a growing number of states that have eschewed capital punishment as a deterrent to the most serious crimes.

    Gov. Jared S. Polis, a Democrat, signed the repeal into law after it had reached his desk from the state legislature. It had passed the Senate in January and the House in February after several failed attempts to end capital punishment in the state.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/23/us/colorado-death-penalty-repeal.html
     
    The guy seems somewhat mentally unwell, so he might have dodged it anyway, however he also seems generally quite self-interested and may possibly have been dissuaded by the thought of getting the death penalty. We'll never know.

    In the light of the note and its contents, clearly intended, as I must insist, as staging, the key fact in the case is the fact that Patsy is the one who called the police so early in the morning, while the body was lying the basement waiting to be discovered, not John. This call could not possibly have been made by the person who wrote that note. Calling the police first thing in the morning is exactly what the note says not to do. There is simply no reason why someone would stage a phoney kidnapping, with the clear intention of removing the body from the house prior to calling the police, and then totally blow that staging by calling the police before the body had been removed -- and then handing over an obviously phoney note written in her own hand. Sorry, but that does not compute.

    When did this happen? It looks terrible. It looks like a green cop got scared, freaked out, and acted in an ultimately inexcusable manner. It looks like the black guy deserves at least half a million dollars, if he lived. Much more to the family if he died.

    But I need context in this clip-culture we live in. The infamous Chauvin-Floyd video segment looked horrible--it looked like a demonic white racist cop murdered an unarmed, handcuffed black man. But, as any thinking person now knows, Chauvin is 100 percent innocent and he's the one who deserves massive monetary settlements--for libel. The whole world wants to destroy an innocent working man's life because of what they thought they saw him do.

    So, what was the context here? For instance, was the guy who got shot an escaped mass murderer of cops, by chance? That would be important context, right?

    It could be that what the clip seems to show is exactly what happened--a totally innocent law-abiding black guy was harassed by a white cop (possibly simply for being black) and got shot for jerking around too fast in his attempt to obey an order. But I'll wait for full context before forming any opinion.

    Yeah, a college friend went schizo shortly after graduation. He thought that people were coming into his apartment because the dust patterns on the incandescent light bulbs were changing. He also thought that people at work were trying to rig up some sort of boobie trap for him in the building. And the addresses on some of his mail misspelled his name in a way that he interpreted as being a message to him, intending harm.

    For a white person, this might be an early sign of paranoid schizophrenia, which often strikes in early adulthood. For an Arab, such paranoid delusions might be within the range of normal.
     
    Sort of like thinking that other people think you have horns. Or thinking that your neighbor is just one bad day away from becoming a Sturmbahnfuehrer. Or holidays celebrating how your ancestors got back at those other guys 3,000 years ago.

    Normal for some people, anyway.

    I've heard similar. In the seventies, a woman who'd spent time in Appalachia said that people there called Jews 'Dews' and thought they had horns.

    Many Americans are simply unaware of Jews as real people. I knew an otherwise perfectly intelligent and informed guy from North Carolina who simply didn't realize Bernie Sanders was Jewish. Bless his heart -- but it's pretty hard to get more stereotypically Jewish than Bernie Sanders.

    Spelling it "Alissa" also makes it less conspicuously Arab and Muslim than "Al-Issa."

    The authors of the Second Amendment probably assumed that it would never be held to apply to Negroes or Indians,, since it was connected to militia service and Negroes and Indians didn't serve in militias.

    Replies: @Joe Stalin, @Peter Akuleyev

    The authors of the Second Amendment probably assumed that it would never be held to apply to Negroes or Indians,, since it was connected to militia service and Negroes and Indians didn’t serve in militias.

    Apparently, Negroes did participate in militia service in the pre-Bill of Rights era.

    Northern states at various times also enrolled free Negroes in the
    militia despite federal law and often strident prejudice.96 States North and
    South employed free Negroes in state forces during times of invasion.97
    While southern states often prohibited slaves from carrying weapons and
    strictly regulated access to firearms by free Negroes,98 northern states generally made no racial distinction with respect to the right to own firearms,99 and federal law was silent on the subject.

    The racial restriction in the 1792 statute indicates the unrest the revolutionary
    generation felt toward arming blacks and perhaps the recognition
    that one of the functions of the militia would indeed be to put down slave
    revolts. Yet, the widespread use of blacks as soldiers in time of crisis and the
    absence of restrictions concerning the arming of blacks in the northern states
    may provide another clue concerning how to read the Second Amendment.
    The 1792 act specified militia enrollment for white men between the ages of
    eighteen and forty-five. 100 Yet, while it specifically included only this limited
    portion of the population, the statute excluded no one from militia service.

    The authors of the statute had experience, in the Revolution, with a militia
    and Continental Army considerably broad in membership. Older and
    younger men had served with the Revolutionary forces. Blacks had served,
    though their service had been an object of considerable controversy. 1 0 1 Even
    women had served, though, given the attitudes of the day, this was far more
    controversial than black service. Given this experience and the fact that the
    constitutional debates over the militia had constantly assumed an enrollment
    of the male population between sixteen and sixty, it is likely that the framers
    of the 1792 statute envisioned a militia even broader than the one they specified.

    This suggests to us how broad the term “people” in the Second Amendment
    was meant to be.

    The latest from The New York Times. We don’t reach the suspect’s name until paragraph 12 out of 20. Paragraph 13 is a doozy also, then back to dullness:

    https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/23/us/boulder-shooting-what-we-know.html

    What to Know About the Colorado Grocery Store Shooting

    Ten people were killed [passive voice, with no “by” phrase] in the attack at a supermarket in Boulder, including a police officer, the authorities said.

    March 23, 2021

    Paragraph 1: The Boulder police chief said on Tuesday that a 21-year-old man from a Denver suburb had been charged with 10 counts of murder in the shooting on Monday at a grocery store in Boulder, Colo., that left 10 people dead.

    2: The rampage paralyzed parts of Boulder, with law enforcement officers in tactical gear swarming a busy shopping center and at least one other location.

    3: Here is what we know about the rampage.

    What happened?

    4: Around 2:30 p.m., the aisles of a King Soopers grocery store a few miles south of the campus of the University of Colorado became a scene of terror when a gunman began shooting using an assault-style rifle, law enforcement officials said. Shoppers and employees ran for cover, and some said they had escaped through an employee stock area and a loading dock at the back of the store.

    5: Ryan Borowski, a licensed massage therapist who lives on the other side of Boulder, said in an interview that he had stopped to buy a soda, chips and possibly ice cream at the supermarket when the shooting began.

    [Note: Massage therapists are to be named, but not the gunman]

    6: “I just second-thought it and said, ‘No, I don’t need ice cream,’” he said. “That’s when I heard the gunshots.”

    7: About six hours after the shooting, the Boulder police chief, Maris Herold, announced that 10 people had been killed [passive voice], including a police officer.

    8: “These were people going about their day, doing their food shopping, and their lives were cut abruptly and tragically short by the shooter, who is now in custody,” Michael Dougherty, the Boulder County district attorney, said at a news conference on Monday night.

    Ten people were killed.

    9: Chief Herold said on Tuesday that the coroner’s office had identified all the victims and notified their families before 4 a.m.

    10: One of them was Eric Talley, 51, who joined the Boulder Police Department in 2010. He was the first officer to respond to the scene, according to Chief Herold, who credited him, along with officers from across the region, with preventing more people from being killed.

    11: The authorities identified the nine additional victims as Denny Stong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; and Jody Waters, 65.

    [Say their names. The shooter? Maybe the Times has a policy of not giving killers glory by using their names. But wait a minute …. wasn’t there another shooting recently …? Must be a new policy this week.]

    Who is the suspect and how was he caught? [Yeah, I knew there was something that’s been left dangling.]

    12: Chief Herold identified the suspect as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa of Arvada [Yay, we have a name. Celebrate the diversity!], a suburb of Denver about 20 miles from Boulder.

    13: Mr. Dougherty, the district attorney, said he had “lived most of his life in the United States [Translation: He has lived outside the United States. Where and when outside the U.S.? Don’t ask.].” Officials said they had two encounters in 2018 with Mr. Alissa — one on a report of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, and one of criminal mischief [In other words 93 percent mostly peaceful]. Law enforcement officials said he was known to the F.B.I. because he had ties to someone the bureau was investigating. [You don’t say?]

    [Wow, that was a lot of information in paragraphs 12 and 13. Anyway, on to other topics. We need a few more content-free paragraphs to trip up those people who read our articles backwards to try to get the real story.]

    [MORE]

    14: Chief Herold said Mr. Alissa had been taken into custody with a leg injury but was in stable condition and was expected to be taken to jail later on Tuesday.

    15: Videos showed a handcuffed man being escorted from the building by officers, shirtless and with his right leg appearing to be covered in blood. The nature of his injuries was not immediately clear.

    Elected officials weighed in.

    16: President Biden has been briefed on the shooting and will be kept apprised of any further developments, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said on Twitter.

    17: At a news conference on Tuesday morning, Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado said his heart ached after the shooting, adding, “The eyes of the nation are on Colorado.”

    18: Representative Lauren Boebert, Republican of Colorado, who made supporting gun owners’ rights a key part of her agenda, said she was praying for “the police, first responders, and those affected by this tragedy.”

    19: Representative Joe Neguse of Colorado said mass shootings could not be the “new normal.”

    20: “In this year of separation due to Covid, of loss and of loneliness, grocery stores like King Soopers have been one of our consistent gathering places, one of the few routine activities that we’ve continued to engage in as Coloradans and as Americans,” Mr. Neguse said. “It’s hard to describe what it means for this safe place to see a horrible tragedy like this unfold.”

    The family said that he is mentally ill and gives more details:

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/boulder-colorado-cops-identify-king-soopers-supermarket-massacre-suspect-as-ahmad-alissa?ref=home

    However, as is often the case, the mental illness does not go so far as to make the criminal unable to formulate plans (such as purchasing a gun in advance of the attack) and provide for his own safety (wear body armor). When the SWAT team entered the store, Alissa had stripped down to a pair of shorts so that they could see that he wasn't carrying a bomb vest and wouldn't shoot him. That seems pretty clear minded to me.

    Replies: @Travis, @prime noticer, @Anon, @Jonathan Mason

    If his family knew he was mentally ill, why did they let him buy a gun? Big red flag there.

    If this guy goes to prison, his cellmate is going to be so paranoid the Alissa may end up dead in prison. There’s nothing like being locked up with a schizophrenic serial killer that makes you say, “I gotta do something about this, or I’m ending up dead.”

    My fingers are crossed.

  183. Uh, guys…

    The suspect’s identity was previously known to the F.B.I. because he was linked to another individual under investigation by the bureau, according to law enforcement officials.

    (New York Times.) No further details.

    Kind of puts a new spin on this nugget from the Denver Post:

    On a Facebook page that appeared to belong to Alissa, the user posted in 2019 that he believed his former high school was hacking his cell phone. In a comment to someone who asked why the school would do that, he blamed racism.

    “I believe part racism for sure,” he replied. “I believe someone spread rumors about me which are false and maybe that set it off.”

    And maybe even on this:

    “He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up,” Marvel said. “It was a crazy deal. I just know he was a pretty cool kid until something made him mad, and then whatever made him mad, he went over the edge — way too far.”

    Since, allegedly, the FBI was already aware of this disgruntled Towel Headed Camel Jockey from the land of Middle East Fruits and Nuts. I suspect he was one of their targeted MK Ultra mind controlled patsies like their other patsy in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, FL. I would bring up the Pulse nightclub shooting but I don’t want to be labeled insensitive to the LGBT community or the Muslim community.

    I swear. Where is all the blood and dead bodies all over the place in that picture. It looks as if he’s on a snipe hunt.

    Well, it’s that time of year again, we should make it a National Holiday, where Congressional Democrats stir the hornets nest once again in an attempt to suppress WYTE Supremacists sexual obsessions with giant black phallic symbols that only hold thirty rounds of death and destruction.

    So, with only ten days to learn how to use a weapon of mass destruction and questions as to whether there is any 5.56/223 ammo out there to be had at this time? Are there any pictures of the perp practicing at any local gun ranges in the greater Boulder metro area? We have a Syrian Rambo more than capable of shooting and killing 10 people in the space of a few minutes. Are even combat soldiers capable of that type of kill ratio? I could see it if they all just lined up in a row to be shot.

    My question is: Why an AR15? Why not a MasterPiece Arms Defender 9mm Semi-Auto 30rd 4.5″ Pistol? Maybe we should ask Diane Feinstein and her Chinese controllers.

    Itchy trigger happy cop. Looked like the cop didn’t give two shits where his projectiles went.

    Stupid cop should have asked the driver to step away from his car first. Looked as if he was looking for any excuse to shoot someone.

    Luckily the driver survived long enough to make the cop look like a giant ass on the tape.

    I guess the lesson here is don’t make any sudden moves in front of cops looking to shoot first and ask questions later.

    That’s not the way it should be. But, that’s the reality of the situation. And, if you’re unable to accept that reality it can get you killed.

The Argumentative Indian, the Legalistic Jew, the Unethical Chinese, the Homosexual Canadian and so on are less important and less attested, but the stereotypes of the Angry Arab and the Violent Black can potentially save lives regardless of how often they are demonstrated. In this case these idiot kids were going up to him and deliberately provoking him, even after they knew he was a hothead. Update the Talk.

    The family said that he is mentally ill and gives more details:

    However, as is often the case, the mental illness does not go so far as to make the criminal unable to formulate plans (such as purchasing a gun in advance of the attack) and provide for his own safety (wear body armor). When the SWAT team entered the store, Alissa had stripped down to a pair of shorts so that they could see that he wasn't carrying a bomb vest and wouldn't shoot him. That seems pretty clear minded to me.

    So I was right again. Well I never!

    People who suffer from paranoid schizophrenia arewell-known for being quite well organized in their thinking once they get away from the immediate subject of their delusions.

    As a retired lawyer you might be familiar with the McNaughten rules and the fascinating story behind them, which to these days affect the determination of insanity and fitness to plead in many legal jurisdictions.

    I said before that probably the family protected him, because of his mental illness, but in fact he might have been on antipsychotic medication, which could partly explain why he was so overweight at the age of only.

    Olanzapine, which is a popular site antipsychotic these days, is notorious for making people pile on the pounds.

    It seems to be a universal phenomenon that whenever somebody commits a heinous crime, there is a neighbor or acquaintance willing to step forward and speak to journalists to say that the person always seem to completely harmless, though perhaps a little odd.

    However, the general population is hopelessly inadequate at noticing psychiatric disorder unless people are actually talking to themselves in public places.

    Very true. The vast majority of true psychiatric disorders go unrecognized. Diagnosis is most often left for the people to seek treatment themselves -- which the most capable or concealable of the mentally ill almost never do -- or after they've done something so illegal or heinous that they're forced to.

    Meanwhile the general public is good at diagnosing themselves with borderline mental disorders -- especially if they're trendy and come with various excuses -- but very bad at recognizing when they're engaging in mass delusion and hysteria.

    Amidst a population that is teetering on the brink of insanity in their daily lives, warning signs of actual mental illness will naturally get overlooked...

    Black Intellectuals Demand Smith College Apologize to Smeared Workers, End ‘Anti-Bias’ Training
    ......................

    The letter’s signatories — scholars Glenn Loury, John McWhorter, and Shelby Steele among them — express disgust at the way McCartney has handled the situation.

    “Many of us participated in the Civil Rights Movement, fighting for equal treatment under the law, which included due process and the presumption of innocence,” they write. “We didn’t march so that Americans of any race could be presumed guilty and punished for false accusations while the elite institution that employed them cowered in fear of a social media mob. We certainly didn’t march so that privileged Blacks could abuse working class whites based on ‘lived experience.’”

    The letter also questions McCartney for a recent February letter she wrote to the Smith community, in which she stated that “our commitment to, and strategies for, advancing equity and inclusion are grounded in evidence.”

    “Have you gathered any verifiable evidence of success from the ‘antibias’ training you forced your service employees to undergo as a condition of their employment?” the letter asks. “Please consider that many Black Americans find training that reduces us simply to a racial category profoundly condescending and dehumanizing.”

    Replies: @Gary in Gramercy

    Loury and McWhorter are certainly the real thing (as in, “legitimate intellectuals,” not just “black intellectuals,” who get judged by markedly lower standards).

    So for them to state publicly, “No Mali-coddling at Smith!” is noteworthy. For them to stand up for those working-class Smith employees — whose jobs and reputations were taken away in unseemly haste because of some spoiled African brat’s concocted complaints — is commendable. They’ll catch a lot of flak from the mau-maus at their respective institutions, but they’re probably used to that by now. Plus, they have tenure, and are not so easily cancelled.

    Both Loury and McWhorter are creations of Conservatism, Inc. "I don't see color" Whites who are are giddy they've found one of those rare blacks who can pass for an intellectual. Their only readers are Whites. Their salary and social position come from Whites. So neither demonstrates any great intellectual 'courage' in speaking or writing as they do. But both still blame black dysfunction on 'culture' and racism, and refuse to even consider the role of genetics. McWhorter, who was a bit more honest in his early years, now celebrates his sub-par black students (while married to a White woman, of course).

    These men are no heroes, but they thrive on White adoration.

    In the light of the note and its contents, clearly intended, as I must insist, as staging, the key fact in the case is the fact that Patsy is the one who called the police so early in the morning, while the body was lying the basement waiting to be discovered, not John. This call could not possibly have been made by the person who wrote that note. Calling the police first thing in the morning is exactly what the note says not to do. There is simply no reason why someone would stage a phoney kidnapping, with the clear intention of removing the body from the house prior to calling the police, and then totally blow that staging by calling the police before the body had been removed -- and then handing over an obviously phoney note written in her own hand. Sorry, but that does not compute.
     
  206. The extremely inconsistent non principled Democrats on social media who say Jesus Christ can not be White because he was born in The Middle East now all of a sudden are using the talking point that everybody who is born in The Middle East is White according to The U.S census so there for the Boulder mass shooter is White. The U.S census also says Jesus Christ is White as well but that does not stop Democrats from labeling Jesus Christ as a Person Of Color.

    Besides being a pseudo-intellectual (on par with most of Sailer's commentariat), you are simply wrong. Arabs may be caucasoid, but they are not White Europeans. And those with lighter skin generally have some European ancestry, from the hundreds of thousands of Whites taken as slaves by Mohammedans over the centuries.

    There is a cohesive group of Whites in America, but you are obviously not part of it. Only Whites who celebrate their ancestry and culture and recognize and prefer their own people are needed for the future. The rest of you carry on miscegenating and dying out.

    The last big crime there was the murder, by the father, of JonBenét Ramsey.

    Even the boneheads in the Boulder police didn't fancy John Ramsey had killed his daughter (they'd fingered the mother). Supersensitive DNA testing found stranger DNA on her leggings and in her underwear and the local DA closed the case against the Ramseys.

This call could not possibly have been made by the person who wrote that note. Calling the police first thing in the morning is exactly what the note says not to do. There is simply no reason why someone would stage a phoney kidnapping, with the clear intention of removing the body from the house prior to calling the police, and then totally blow that staging by calling the police before the body had been removed — and then handing over an obviously phoney note written in her own hand.

    Very true. The vast majority of true psychiatric disorders go unrecognized. Diagnosis is most often left for the people to seek treatment themselves — which the most capable or concealable of the mentally ill almost never do — or after they’ve done something so illegal or heinous that they’re forced to.

    Meanwhile the general public is good at diagnosing themselves with borderline mental disorders — especially if they’re trendy and come with various excuses — but very bad at recognizing when they’re engaging in mass delusion and hysteria.

    It appears that – among mass shooters – whites and Hispanics are underrepresented while blacks, Asians, Middle Easterners, and American Indians are overrepresented. It appears, though, that the the black and Asian overrepresentation is relatively minor. The two categories that are massively overrepresented are Middle Easterners – only 0.4% of the population, but 7.6% of the mass shooters, meaning overrepresented by 19x – and American Indians – 1% of the population and 3.8% of the mass shooters.

    Similarly, Christians and Jews are underrepresented while Muslims are vastly overrepresented – 0.8% of the population, yet 9% of the mass shooters or 11.25x the population share.

    Thank you for the data. As a pro-White American who believes that rising heterogeneity poses a long-term existential threat to our civilization, I strongly support a nationwide immigration moratorium–at least from Third World regions. At the same time, it does not surprise me that a Syrian refugee living in America might be full of rage.

    After all, Zionist-friendly Washington has been undermining, subverting, and intermittently bombing Syria for years. Decades.

    Problem is, repeated, unjustified mass killings often make people mad. Crazy mad.

    As a generic, unaffiliated, US-born white guy, it even bugs the shit out of me.

    Obviously, no policies out of Washington–no matter how barbaric–justify the mass murder of innocents. At the same time, does it not interest you that there might be a connection?

    Yeah, apparently so. His name in Arabic is

    The “Issa” part is the leftmost of the three words; Arabic is written right-to-left.
    I don’t understand why the definite article is attached like that. It’s not what I’d expect (based on my pretty elementary knowledge of Arabic) but I see that the Wikipedia article on Jesus Christ is spelledlike that, with the definite article.

    His middle name must have struck you too, as it looks like the name of the Islamic denomination that includes the Assad family that’s ruled Syria since 1970. Comparing the Arabic spelling of “Allawi” with the shooter’s middle name, they’re not spelled quite the same. They could still be inflections of the same word. Google translates his middle name as “the highest”. But “Allawi” comes from the given name Ali which literally means “high”.

    So there you have it: Ahmad the Allawi (or “the highest”) the Jesus. Explaining that (within the complicated religious context of Syria) is a job for someone who knows more than I do.

    The latest from The New York Times. We don't reach the suspect's name until paragraph 12 out of 20. Paragraph 13 is a doozy also, then back to dullness:

    What to Know About the Colorado Grocery Store Shooting

    Ten people were killed [passive voice, with no "by" phrase] in the attack at a supermarket in Boulder, including a police officer, the authorities said.

    March 23, 2021

    Paragraph 1: The Boulder police chief said on Tuesday that a 21-year-old man from a Denver suburb had been charged with 10 counts of murder in the shooting on Monday at a grocery store in Boulder, Colo., that left 10 people dead.

    2: The rampage paralyzed parts of Boulder, with law enforcement officers in tactical gear swarming a busy shopping center and at least one other location.

    3: Here is what we know about the rampage.

    What happened?

    4: Around 2:30 p.m., the aisles of a King Soopers grocery store a few miles south of the campus of the University of Colorado became a scene of terror when a gunman began shooting using an assault-style rifle, law enforcement officials said. Shoppers and employees ran for cover, and some said they had escaped through an employee stock area and a loading dock at the back of the store.

    5: Ryan Borowski, a licensed massage therapist who lives on the other side of Boulder, said in an interview that he had stopped to buy a soda, chips and possibly ice cream at the supermarket when the shooting began.

    [Note: Massage therapists are to be named, but not the gunman]

    6: “I just second-thought it and said, ‘No, I don’t need ice cream,’” he said. “That’s when I heard the gunshots.”

    7: About six hours after the shooting, the Boulder police chief, Maris Herold, announced that 10 people had been killed [passive voice], including a police officer.

    8: “These were people going about their day, doing their food shopping, and their lives were cut abruptly and tragically short by the shooter, who is now in custody,” Michael Dougherty, the Boulder County district attorney, said at a news conference on Monday night.

    Ten people were killed.

    9: Chief Herold said on Tuesday that the coroner’s office had identified all the victims and notified their families before 4 a.m.

    10: One of them was Eric Talley, 51, who joined the Boulder Police Department in 2010. He was the first officer to respond to the scene, according to Chief Herold, who credited him, along with officers from across the region, with preventing more people from being killed.

    11: The authorities identified the nine additional victims as Denny Stong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; and Jody Waters, 65.

    [Say their names. The shooter? Maybe the Times has a policy of not giving killers glory by using their names. But wait a minute .... wasn't there another shooting recently ...? Must be a new policy this week.]

    Who is the suspect and how was he caught? [Yeah, I knew there was something that's been left dangling.]

    12: Chief Herold identified the suspect as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa of Arvada [Yay, we have a name. Celebrate the diversity!], a suburb of Denver about 20 miles from Boulder.

    13: Mr. Dougherty, the district attorney, said he had “lived most of his life in the United States [Translation: He has lived outside the United States. Where and when outside the U.S.? Don't ask.].” Officials said they had two encounters in 2018 with Mr. Alissa — one on a report of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, and one of criminal mischief [In other words 93 percent mostly peaceful]. Law enforcement officials said he was known to the F.B.I. because he had ties to someone the bureau was investigating. [You don't say?]

    [Wow, that was a lot of information in paragraphs 12 and 13. Anyway, on to other topics. We need a few more content-free paragraphs to trip up those people who read our articles backwards to try to get the real story.]
     

    14: Chief Herold said Mr. Alissa had been taken into custody with a leg injury but was in stable condition and was expected to be taken to jail later on Tuesday.

    15: Videos showed a handcuffed man being escorted from the building by officers, shirtless and with his right leg appearing to be covered in blood. The nature of his injuries was not immediately clear.

    Elected officials weighed in.

    16: President Biden has been briefed on the shooting and will be kept apprised of any further developments, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said on Twitter.

    17: At a news conference on Tuesday morning, Gov. Jared Polis of Colorado said his heart ached after the shooting, adding, “The eyes of the nation are on Colorado.”

    18: Representative Lauren Boebert, Republican of Colorado, who made supporting gun owners’ rights a key part of her agenda, said she was praying for “the police, first responders, and those affected by this tragedy.”

    19: Representative Joe Neguse of Colorado said mass shootings could not be the “new normal.”

    20: “In this year of separation due to Covid, of loss and of loneliness, grocery stores like King Soopers have been one of our consistent gathering places, one of the few routine activities that we’ve continued to engage in as Coloradans and as Americans,” Mr. Neguse said. “It’s hard to describe what it means for this safe place to see a horrible tragedy like this unfold.”

I tell them that they have a guarantee if there's physical evidence of said implanting of microchips, the lawyer will take the case. No such physical evidence has ever materialized in quite a few years now. The covid-19 has really been making people's mental condition much worse.

    "At the Community Grill in Frisco, the silver thermoses of coffee were waiting and the Deplorables indulged in other baseless speculations. President Biden is senile, they said. He's being fed his words through an earpiece by former president Barack Obama."

    And worse, it's still a Red county.

    "But this utopia on the Dallas North Tollway has its fissures, which have deepened in the last year, with debate over pandemic restrictions, the country’s racial reckoning and the divisive 2020 presidential election that pitted neighbor against neighbor and continues to divide. Unlike many other suburban counties in the country that helped sway the election for Biden, Collin County stayed red, with 51% voting for Trump and 46% for Biden."

    The horror. It stayed at 51%. They will pay dearly.

    (New York Times.) No further details.

    On a Facebook page that appeared to belong to Alissa, the user posted in 2019 that he believed his former high school was hacking his cell phone. In a comment to someone who asked why the school would do that, he blamed racism.

    “I believe part racism for sure,” he replied. “I believe someone spread rumors about me which are false and maybe that set it off.”
     
    And maybe even on this:

    “He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up,” Marvel said. “It was a crazy deal. I just know he was a pretty cool kid until something made him mad, and then whatever made him mad, he went over the edge — way too far.”

    Very true. The vast majority of true psychiatric disorders go unrecognized. Diagnosis is most often left for the people to seek treatment themselves -- which the most capable or concealable of the mentally ill almost never do -- or after they've done something so illegal or heinous that they're forced to.

    Meanwhile the general public is good at diagnosing themselves with borderline mental disorders -- especially if they're trendy and come with various excuses -- but very bad at recognizing when they're engaging in mass delusion and hysteria.

For them to stand up for those working-class Smith employees -- whose jobs and reputations were taken away in unseemly haste because of some spoiled African brat's concocted complaints -- is commendable.

    Both Loury and McWhorter are creations of Conservatism, Inc. “I don’t see color” Whites who are are giddy they’ve found one of those rare blacks who can pass for an intellectual. Their only readers are Whites. Their salary and social position come from Whites. So neither demonstrates any great intellectual ‘courage’ in speaking or writing as they do. But both still blame black dysfunction on ‘culture’ and racism, and refuse to even consider the role of genetics.

    Besides being a pseudo-intellectual (on par with most of Sailer’s commentariat), you are simply wrong. Arabs may be caucasoid, but they are not White Europeans. And those with lighter skin generally have some European ancestry, from the hundreds of thousands of Whites taken as slaves by Mohammedans over the centuries.

    It appears that – among mass shooters – whites and Hispanics are underrepresented while blacks, Asians, Middle Easterners, and American Indians are overrepresented. It appears, though, that the the black and Asian overrepresentation is relatively minor. The two categories that are massively overrepresented are Middle Easterners – only 0.4% of the population, but 7.6% of the mass shooters, meaning overrepresented by 19x – and American Indians – 1% of the population and 3.8% of the mass shooters.

    Similarly, Christians and Jews are underrepresented while Muslims are vastly overrepresented – 0.8% of the population, yet 9% of the mass shooters or 11.25x the population share.
