Yesterday: Cincinnati Active Shooter situation! Today: Cinci…who?

Mid-morning yesterday, the interwebs were filled with the horror of another Active Shooter that left three people killed before the cops popped his sorry butt.  I was following a couple of live feeds, but eventually left to do other things and it is better to wait some time anyway so good info can come out.

And I don’t realize till zero dark hundred that there is no usual furor in Social Media about the incident. Before I logged out from the feeds, politicians were already doing the tap dancing on blood which led me to believe the shooter was White.  But suddenly it was like Officer Brabrady was in charge and I had to dig into the local Cincinnati news to find out info.

 

Omar Santa Perez, the man who Cincinnati police say opened fire in the lobby of Fifth Third Center, killing three people and wounding two others, filed a lawsuit in 2017 against CNBC Universal Media LLC and TD Ameritrade Holding Corp.
On June 25, Federal Magistrate Karen Litkovitz in her recommendation to dismiss the case wrote that Santa Perez’s allegations were “rambling, difficult to decipher and borders on delusional.”

Cincinnati shooter filed ‘delusional’ suit against CNBC, TD Ameritrade months before spree

Aw crap, there goes the Narrative again.  The guy was Puerto Rican and had a history of non-violent minor offenses and that is pretty much all there is other than the gun used was probably a handgun because I have not heard the screech of the media about fully semiautomatic AR 15s.

  1. Huh. A mental case allowed to run free, kills people. And despite a history of “issues”, no one did anything that might have stopped him.

    Now, I doubt the gun was legally bought — the shooting was a mile or two from the projects — but, man, if only we still had asylums.

  2. My brother’s work shares a stairway with the bank. The swat team that showed up had him at gun point while yelling at him how many people were with him and he didn’t know.

    My dad is offering to pay for his CCW permit if he’ll do it.

    Apparently the guy was batshit insane and thought they were going to broadcast his personal information on MSNBC.
