ANOTHER SCHOOL/PUBLIC SHOOTING
Every single person who has nothing but thoughts & prayers to offer should have to go through this. Every person! I won't have a bit of compassion for you, just the opposite will be true, I will be glad you're suffering. Fuck ya.

Law Enforcement believes that the Thousand Oaks mass shooter himself credited his ability to carry out Wednesday night's murders to the fact that nobody did anything but offer thoughts and prayers after previous mass shootings.

Authorities have identified a Facebook post believed to have been made by the shooter around the time of the attack.

In it, the writer says: "I hope people call me insane... (laughing emojis).. wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony? Yeah.. I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers'.. or 'keep you in my thoughts'... every time... and wonder why these keep happening..."

Also, as of last night, it's been confirmed by LE that shooter Ian Long was a regular of the Borderline Bar and Grill and that he did, in fact, use smoke bombs in the attack (as seen in the bar's surveillance video).

The other coaches and school administration told her to not kick him off the track team-giving the reason of ruining his future.

Interesting.

Source is from a local LA page. It had so many pop ups though I could barely get through the article. I am looking for other sources now.

I first heard of the story from a feminist website talking about white male priveliage.

I just read the coach's story in the Daily Mail.  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article...chool.html

Neighbors and former classmates also characterize Long as 'mean, angry, disturbed...' even before he joined the military.

I bet he knew many of those he killed at Borderline.

Guessing he was not popular there and not many liked him.

Plenty of Vets there and I find it odd that he either wouldn’t or couldn’t make friends with them.

He was, I’m guessing, lazy and obviously mean spirited. When he was continually blown off, he decided to ‘get even’.

There will continue to be more and more of these as the years pass and we will continue to be defenseless to stop them.

I'm not sure Ian Long killed people he knew at Borderline, MS.  But, I won't be surprised if he did either.

He definitely knew some of the patrons of Borderline.  One of his childhood friends was there and was interviewed a couple of days ago. 

New info released by LE:
-- Long was apparently posting to Instagram during the massacre, based on posting time stamps (LE has scrubbed all of his social media content).
-- The surviving victims were not shot, they were injured in the chaos while trying to escape.  Long was very precise and killed everyone he shot.
-- Investigators are working to determine whether Long believed his ex-girlfriend was at Borderline the night of the massacre.

These are the twisted ponderings that the Borderline mass shooter, Ian Long, posted to Facebook and Instagram during the massacre.

"It's too bad I won't get to see all the illogical and pathetic reasons people will put in my mouth as to why I did it."

"Fact is I had no reason to do it, and I just thought.... life is boring so why not?"

"I hope people call me insane... (laughing emojis).. wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony?"

"Yeah.. I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers'.. or 'keep you in my thoughts'... every time... and wonder why these keep happening..."

That's a valid point.

He was an impressive multi-tasker.

Yeah, he was able to set off the smoke bombs, shoot  and kill 12 people, record the massacre on his phone, post to social media, and kill himself........... all in a matter of minutes.

Sadly, Long was uniquely qualified to carry out those multiple tasks efficiently.

He was well-trained in shooting to kill in the military.

He learned how to use smoke bombs during his time in combat as well.

In addition, he was quite familiar with the venue, having been a regular there.

Long was clearly well-equipped to launch a surprise attack and action is faster than reaction.  

As you suggested upthread, an armed guard with a gun or a patron with a gun could not likely have done anything other than create more gunshot victims in the chaos.
