Shooting At TN Naval Recruiting Building

Four dead plus the shooter apparently.

Should there be a US mass shooting thread created so we can keep all of these threads together?

The local police have already said it wasn't Islamic terrorism, so you can take that to the bank.

Re: Shooting At TN Naval Recruiting Building

25-30 shots from an assault rifle is what is being reported. My dad was an Army recruiter and a station commander most of his 20 plus years in and the recruiting stations are completely open. I am surprised this doesn't happen more often as they get a lot of death threats over the phone.

Looks like it was two separate locations that were shot at.

Not all of them : Timothy McVeigh, Jade Helm conspiracy theorists, militia groups.

I'm going way out on a limb here and guess he's Muslim. I know.. stereotyping again. I'm also going go out on a limb and say he's probably not a woman and not Jewish. More craziness from me.

Furthermore I predict the mainstream media will connect him to the Tea Party and then a few days later retract that due to the fact that they completely made it up.

TN.. hmm.. what's there.. ok.. Country Music
Please don't tease me about banning country music.

Looks like the shooter was a naturalized US citizen originally from Kuwait.

I saw a tweet that they said was sent by ISIS before the shootings that had a #Chattanooga hashtag that forewarned of the shooting.

I'm sure if it's real or not so I didn't want to post it yet.

If that's true it's going to be very difficult for them to not label this Islamic terrorism. Not that they won't try..

I need more facts. I'm sticking with my "redneck gets pissed about all the anti-confederate flag talk and just snapped" theory.

I saw this hashtag only a few minutes after the shooting was announced, so I can verify it was there. I just don't know what it really translated to as it was in Arabic, and from a simple Google translation, seemed something a person would say about "having a nice day". Translation was a little off, or maybe it wasn't, I dunno. Tried to get the Twitter account up to look at it further, but it was removed, of course.

If true, it's what I originally suspected. This happens a lot with mass shootings; jackasses making fake social media accounts.

If I were running ISIS. I would employ an army of bloggers and twitters to constantly post "fire and death coming soon to (insert random mid-sized American town here)" just to keep things stirred up.

Thanks. That's exactly why I saw it and didn't post it here. I didn't see it on Fox though it was an AP bulletin with a link but it was a feed story (not public / not verified).

I had my doubts about it.. ISIS doesn't usually tip their hand like that.

So yes, this continually drives me nuts. I was listening to Boston WBZ news radio at work (yes, I listen to an actual physical radio), and this report first broke--the Chattanooga police spokesman SPECIFICALLY said "this doesn't seem to be Islamic terrorism."

This was just a couple hours after the attack. Why is the first inclination of every public official to defend Islam? It seems highly dubious to me that ANY motive could be ruled in or out so early in the investigation, when the news reports will still fuzzy as to how many shooters, how many sites, how many victims. This happens after almost every Islamic terror attack. Is it too much to ask that officials should just say "we don't want to comment on a motive until we have more information."?

Re: Shooting At TN Naval Recruiting Building

I'd say there's a sweeping fear within the US Government to call ANYTHING what it is when it comes to Islamic Terrorism/Black-Initiated Violence, because they know Obama is going to have their job (or be "investigated").

Why don't we just call our US Military a bunch of Message Therapists, and then we can send millions overseas to ISIS territories and massage their bodies when they kill people.

Because their muscles get sore after such a hard day's work.

I can't believe this guy was able to kill 4 Massage Therapists before being taken out. Yeah the whole stupid "gun free zone" is like painting a target.
