Suspect apprehended in fatal shooting at Wisconsin tavern

Quote:
Authorities say they have apprehended a person in connection with a shooting at a busy tavern in southeastern Wisconsin early Sunday that left three men dead and three men injured.

Kenosha County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. David Wright said the suspect is facing a charge of first-degree intentional homicide, with additional criminal charges likely after further investigation. Authorities said earlier they weren't sure if there was more than one shooter.

“There is no threat to the community at this time,” Wright said in a release. He said no further information on the suspect would be released Sunday.

More media attention causes more future violence

In this case, the media could care less about the victims or the shooter because of their race. This tragedy cannot be used to further their fabricated narratives. It gets little coverage and they move to something new quickly.

There are hundreds of these largely ignored shooting a year -- more than 1 a day in the US.

Probably because the USA appears to have normalized these events in blind pursuit of treating the 2nd Amendment like it's the immutable word of God. It's an amendment and it can be amended again.

I would have expected the Sandy Hook shooting (not to diminish the others, before and after) to be the utterly horrific and much needed wake-up call for enough already! - but no; being able to own ridiculously high powered and large magazine, rapid fire weapons is apparently more important.
Freedom, or something. :roll:

So no; don't try to blame the media for this one - look in the mirror. (figuratively speaking of the USA in general; not you specifically)
And attempting to introduce yet another racial element to this sorry situation where it's clearly much bigger than that is beginning to look like an agenda.

Ask yourself why these shootings occur, then work on that.

There's also been a mass shooting in West Hempstead, Nassau County, New York, at a Stop and Shop supermarket. 1 dead, 2 wounded so far.

It wouldn't be surprising if a new era of Prohibition happens but with guns instead of alcohol.
