Another this is such a shame crime. Two policemen were shot while eating lunch and a woman in a Walmart across the street was killed before one of the shooters killed the man with her and then herself in the back of the store. They were yelling that this was a revolution. What possesses people? Shortest revolution I've ever heard of. Wonder what kind of story is going to come out of that.
My sympathies are with the families these three victims left behind.

As times grow worse I think the tempo and enormity of these episodes will increase as well.

People get paranoid.. Coupled with guns and a buddy to pump them up, this kind of stuff happens.
Oh, and don't forget the alcohol.

But really, if you're trying to start a revolution, shooting peaceful people isn't going to get you anywhere. If you want a revolution, find the people you're revolting against...

As police converged on Walmart, Gillespie says the female suspect shot the male suspect before turning the gun on herself.



Will have to wait and find out who they were and what they were into, apart from a very flawed ideology coupled with being utter cowards hiding behind their guns.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I did a google and found the following webpage that lists this years Walmart related shootings:

Below is a list, updated regularly, with all of the incidents in 2014 that involved shots fired on Walmart properties. This list does not include all the non-shots fired incidents, like most armed robberies, gun thefts, or threats with guns.

http://walmartshooti...-shootings.html

"So far in 2014 shootings have included:
--> 17 shootings, 3 dead, 6 injured <--"

It's all happening down at the Walmart!

:/

Edited to add: From the same website:
In 2013 shootings included:
--> 81 shootings, 24 dead, 40 injured <--

Okay, Free... I looked at your link. I will say this to you:

In my hometown, my mother lives in an area where there are three Wal-marts within a 10 mile radius. You got the Wal-mart on the not so great side of town. You got another Wal-mart on the country side of town. Then you have another Wal-mart that is off a major interstate.

After seeing your link, I can explain, as to why I think those people showing in that link were half naked.
After a certain time of the day, usually after 9pm, Wal-mart seems to turn off the air-conditioner, (okay at least -every time I have been in one of the wal-marts in my hometown after 9pm) and it gets really stuffy and hot in there. I've always thought that Wal-mart does this because they want to hurry people up out of the store so they can stock the shelves at night without people being in the way.
I will admit that one night, about 1:30am, I took off a layer of clothing whilst I was in the store cause I was burning up.  But I can assure you that I never showed any butt-crack;)

:tsu:

Edited to add: Free, I just watched the viral video of the Tribute to the People that goes to Wal-Mart. I am now sitting here hoping with all hope that the aliens never go to a Wal-mart. It might cause them to see with their own eyes, that there is a high chance that we are not intelligent. I'm a chunky girl and I do know better not to wear spandex, anything strapless or tank tops. Yes, I'm overweight, but I have the decency to keep my flesh well covered! People and their people parts literally hanging out at the Wal-mart... oi vey.

What other possible explanation could there be? haha. It makes sense to me. And have you ever seen these types of fashion atrocities happen at ASDA? But then again, air-conditioning isn't common in this country, because there isn't a real need for it. But can you imagine?!

My fiancé works at a Walmart. :/ Now I'm going to worry every time he goes in.

I can't believe they draped "don't tread on me" flags over the officers after they killed them. They seemed way off their rockers. I feel horrible for those killed.

Sadly, I believe more and more of these type of attacks will happen in the future.

And they all wear the same uniform.... so it's harder to tell who is the crazy!

The news today said this was a married couple who talked to their neighbors about conspiracy theories regarding the government. They were anti-government and anti-law enforcement. They found a manifesto at the scene of one of the shootings in a backpack. No time to look now because I have to leave for work but it will be interesting to see what's written in it.
