The shooter traveled about 10 hours from his home in suburban Dallas to El Paso, which is about 80% Hispanic. He was specifically targeting them.

Actually, I read where the shooter got "lost" and ended up at that Walmart, ate lunch in there and then decided to shoot people. I realize his mission was to kill but that particular store was a fluke.

Link?

The Walmart near the border crossing, one of the busiest (4th) in the whole nation - filled w/ Hispanics who come across the border just to shop there. Yes, I'm gonna need to see a link to whatever you read there, champ.

If he were targeting black people, he wouldn't have sprayed bullets all over a sidewalk populated with a mixed crowd.

My logic, based upon the laws of probability, is that either the crowd he was targeting was mostly blacks or he was aiming at mostly blacks. You don't do a truly "random" attack and kill mostly black people unless the crowd is majority blacks. That is simply probability. Either the crowd was majority black or he was aiming in the direction that was mostly black. Granted, I don't know the racial makeup of all the victims.....just those murdered. I am not saying that he specifically had the goal of killing blacks....but I would not rule out at least a subconscious decision to aim in the direction of blacks. Has anymore been said about why he killed his sister and details about who the boyfriend was?



Again, I want to point out that if the motive was in anyway political, as is leftist motivation, they why target a crowd that is presumably majority leftist supporters?

He just couldn't resist - has no impulse control. Immature child. The most juvenile 70+ yr old. Bordering on senility.
Just when you think he can't sink any lower, he insults the mayor of a city that a day earlier he professed to "care" about. What a duplicitous, hypocritical asshat.

They always do, and it baffles my mind that liberals act like it's all Trump, all the time.

People say awful, awful things, but when he responds he's the one chastised for it.
