Because he doesn’t fit the stereotype that liberals believe in. This guy is not some white supremacist, racist jackoff. They are extremely confused.

His sister's male companion in the car survived so perhaps he can shed some light on that shooter's motivations. That shooter may have had family issues as well.
She and companion were not in a parked car as was originally reported. They were gunned down in the street like the others.

She, a companion and the shooter drove to the area together. She and her companion separated from the shooter. Maybe the shooter went to a parking lot. Or maybe he retrieved his weapons and gear.

The companion was shot in the torso. No telling the extent of his injuries. He may or may not remember or know more than the next guy.

I understood.

We may never know if he targeted his sister or was even aware she was one of his victims. Imagine a forensic determination of sequence is time consuming and challenging.

Dayton shooter was armed counter-protester at Ku Klux Klan rally

The man who killed nine people in Dayton’s Oregon District was seen carrying a gun and protesting against the Ku Klux Klan at a rally downtown in May.

...
Federal authorities have found no evidence that race was a motivating factor in Sunday’s attack, FBI Special Agent Todd Wickerham said Tuesday. Six of the nine people Betts killed were African-American. Betts was white.

The Dayton Daily News reported Monday that a friend of Betts told police the would-be Dayton shooter discussed mass shootings. But the friend, Will El-Fakir, told the newspaper Betts was “definitely not a right-leaning person. His political views definitely leaned to the left.”


White guy kills six black people, with no mention of the other three people... and there is no evidence of race as a motivating factor - by federal authorities.

sounds like a number of C-D leftists on this forum..

Quote:
“Kill every fascist,” the shooter declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of antifa ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. Betts frequently flung the label “Nazi” at those with whom he disagreed online.
Dayton shooter Connor Betts may be antifa’s first mass killer

Were his parents there? I can tell you that anyone who attacked my child, or grandchild, like that would have gotten his family jewels kicked and HE would have been on the ground.

Do you think a person like this should own a gun? All this has to STOP and NOW.
Considering that pos was already on a violent offender registry for a 2011 assault with a weapon conviction, he almost certainly cannot legally own a gun.

Actually the El Paso shooter was a leftist/socialist.
Try to keep up.

Re: Montana

Assailant claims his action was justified because the kid refused to take his hat off. He is lucky a parent or someone else did not blow his head off.

Unless guy is convicted of a felony, he can buy and possess a firearm, which is life in the US.

Some people are very extreme and the 24/7 news cycle and social media makes us more aware of it and in some cases validates it.

Did the definition of what constitutes a socialist change all of sudden because killing Mexican immigrants isn't a very socialist thing to do. It is a very white nationalist thing to do.
