What do you want them to say?

The police still have no clue nor any leads as to why he fired on all those people and killed his sister. Did he want to kill her and shot up the rest for cover, was it an accidental shooting.

Many of us learned a hard lesson with the kid on the Mall and the NA guy. I'll comment when there is something to comment on.

I wonder how Trump will respond to all the protestors there on site in Dayton. Donald Trump is not used to being in front of crowds that do not like him.

The only time Trump usually speaks away from the WH is some pre-planned event or one of his rallies, both of which are full of his supporters.

Watching it live now, there are thousands of people there in Dayton, most of which are not fans of his. I doubt Trump will address the crowd formally, but mostly just walk around and shake hands and talk to people. I'm sure all the anti-Trump signs and people yelling will annoy him.

From what I've seen from the candidates and the media there is equal mention of Dayton and El Paso. Where is it shown that the shooter was leftist?

"Armed with a .223-caliber high-capacity rifle with 100-round drum magazines, Betts fired 41 shots in less than 30 seconds, killing his sister as well as eight seemingly random bystanders in the area, police said Monday. He was killed by police officers on patrol 30 seconds after he opened fire."

Not very lefty of him.

I haven't seen one. Maybe the OP has.

The difference between El Paso and Dayton, even if the Dayton guy was a "fan" of Warren, at no time and no where did Warren incite him to hate a certain demographic. I haven't seen any rallies or speeches where she castigates those who are "other."

Unlike the El Paso shooter, the Dayton shooter did not target a demographic.

He also did not post a cut/ paste manifesto to 8 Chan, quoting some of Trumpís rhetoric, minutes before engaging in a mass shooting. Daytonís motives remain unknown.

Does this surprise anyone? Of course not. Typical behavior.
