BBC News - Seattle apartment shootings leave five dead

5 dead in shootings near Seattle - CNN.com

What race was the shooter?

I see folk all silent now. Yeah, that's right. Folks only want to paint minorities as psychos, but its hard to look at your own with those evil eyes.

Well, so far in this thread we've heard claims of racism for not reporting more on black crime and racism for focusing on black crime.

Way to cover all the bases.

first off, it happened in Federal Way. A shooting there isn't really newsworthy. When I lived in West Seattle 40 years ago, I stayed out of Federal Way!
Secondly, the perp didn't use a semi-automatic pistol or a dreaded "black rifle" or "assault weapon", he used a shotgun, Biden's personal favorite. That isn't nearly frightening enough for wide dissemination.

As for the Denver shooting, since there were cops all over the place, and Colorado just passed restrictive gun laws, making an issue out of it would be counterproductive.

That is about right.

It is sad - but true - that a shooting in Federal Way just isn't all that newsworthy - let alone deserving of it's own thread.

Exactly! We reduced drunken driving fatalities without banning alcohol...but then nobody suggested we drink more.

Also American on American violence is acceptable. It's just the price we have to pay for our Second Amendment rights.

But, if a foreign terrorist kills even one single American citizen, crap hits the fan. We have to start a $5 trillion war with some country, and it doesn't matter which one, or if that country had any thing to do with the terrorism.
