(CNN)Nine people are dead after a shooting in Dayton, Ohio, according to police. Dayton Police say the suspect also is dead. Sixteen additional people were injured in the incident that took place within 13 hours of a shooting that left 20 dead in El Paso, Texas.

  1. Thanks to Trump and all his hate that he is spreading throughout America!! Yes, we had mass shootings but nothing like this until Trump has been in office!! Trump has divided this country!! This is becoming an everyday norm!! 2 mass shootings in one day…. when will the USA acknowledge that the “right to bear arms” is so flawed! My nephew and his family live in Seattle and I truly fear for their lives!!!

    Statistically, “mass shooters” or “mass murderers” are white males in their early 20s to 40 ish. His whiteness made him a shooter, that’s why it’s in the headline. Unfortunately he killed so many people still law doesn’t made him terrorist. Don’t you find it strange that when it’s any other ethnicity they call them a terrorist but not when they’re white? Another race would be labelled as immigrant, terrorist or both, when it’s a white guy just a mental issue. The United States Of America is one of the most cruel nation among themselves. Every year there’s always some Racist crazy #WHITE Male on a public mass shooting. WHITE!!! The only mass shooters here in America … truth hurts 🤷🏻‍♀️ Americans kill each other like cockroach, unsafe country to live in. America doesn’t have a gun problem. It has a sin problem. The Bible says the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked. America needs to repent and turn back to God.

    In the US anyone can be easily killed at random on a University Campus, School, Church, Nursing Home, Office, a busy McDonald, Mall, Restaurant, Bar, Store and other places by a Lone Shooter/Gunman, a Sniper or Multiple Shooters!! ☹️☹️😡😠😠😠 The worse is, they do it MULTIPLE times each year and it’s always an AMERICAN (WHITE) Male, Adult /Teenager who is carrying out these vicious crimes and the #WORLD knows that.. Even walking around a University Campus on a summer day could be killed at random by a Gunman… ☹️☹️☹️😠😠😠. Any other race is a TERRORIST and white is an angelic boy troubled by his thoughts. Just search how the media reported about a terrorist who killed 51 people in a mosque with proper military gear and guns. He was called an angelic boy. He is being called AN ANGELIC BOY WHO GOT MENTALLY DISTURBED DUE TO PLAYING VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES. The court also sent him for mental evaluation instead of calling him a terrorist. Isn’t this privilege? If it was a brown person all hell would have broken loose!! A terrorist must be called a terrorist and convicted of his crimes accordingly no matter his/her religion, race, cast and creed.

    It is all a classification. Whether it’s a hate crime. Domestic terrorism. Lone wolf. When their victims are civilians regarded as soft target it constitute massacre. Whether their objective is political or hate. A mass killing of civilians is synonymous to an act of terror. Terrorise and terrorising both an act of terrorism. Terrorism is directly committed by terrorist regardless of their objective. They’re all killers with the same mindset. And verily the same terrorist intention. A better question is why almost 95% of the time it’s a white man doing the shooting? And media too is responsible to an extend for giving them recognition just for boosting its rating. The gun violence in mass shooting should be dealt with on multiple fronts. Only gun control won’t solve the problem. Do you know that mass shooting n serial killing are align and unfamiliar subjects in many countries in the East despite the fact that the people out there possess guns. It’s because of the communal system in which youth have all kind of support from family n immediate society. Mass shooters in USA are 99.9 white and 100% men. What does it matter what color he is, other than the fact that he’s a cold blooded killer. Don’t you all think if it was a Moslem or immigrant trump wouldn’t be on tv pandering to his hate base and pinning the whole shooting to democrats? Now that the shooting is the results of his hate filled rallies he seems to be quite
