Orlando Attack

We have at least a handful -- maybe more? -- of regular and/or longtime members from Central/South Florida.

I hope that you and your loved ones, friends, neighbors, etc., are all safe and well and taking care of each other.

Re: Orlando Attack

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and well wishes. It's just weird to think, I have been in very close proximity to the 911 terrorists, Bernie Madoff and now the Orlando terrorist.

Florida has become a very scary place.

It really has. It is nothing like it was 35 years ago.

Re: Orlando Attack

Unfortunately I wasn't aware until late yesterday. Was off the grid this weekend. My thoughts are with all that are touched by this tragedy.

Re: Orlando Attack

Worst shooting in US history, and in this case a directly targeted shooting (at the LGBT community). My thoughts are with the victims, their families, and their friends.

To be accurate, the Orlando shooting was the worst mass shooting in recent history.
There have been many other shootings, sometimes by a single shooter and other times by a group of shooters, all the way back to the eradication of certain NA tribes.

I was listening to NPR this morning and learned that this nightclub had a special Latino night at times, and this was the group targeted by this shooter.

Re: Orlando Attack

Fine, then. The worst mass shooting perpetrated by one person in US history, which is what I intended in the first place, and that should have been obvious.

As far as targets go, this is an lgbt nightclub and the shooter has been described as very homophobic. LGBT people were the target, latin@ or otherwise. Please do not erase that.

It's very obvious that the LGBT community was the target.
I found it interesting that he also planned or picked the Latino night in particular.
That information in no way erases or cancels that the victims were LGBT.
It simply shines a little more light into the horror, they were Latino LGBT.


The fact that you meant the worst mass shooting perpetrated by one person in US history may have been
obvious to you but I have ADHD don't always see the unspoken (unwritten) obvious message.

Re: Orlando Attack

What's really odd there is question about killers sexuality. Apparently, he had visited the club multiple times and had a gay chat or date app. on his phone.

Not fact, just what I heard on the radio.

True, and most of the victims were latin@ LGBT people.

As far as what should be obvious, pretty much every time you see someone say "mass shooting" they're talking about a shooting perpetrated by one person. I don't think I've ever seen anyone use it differently until last night.

As far as the mass shootings against Native Americans, I'd call that genocidal violence.

He was probably scoping the place out.

I doubt he was gay himself, and I don't really understand the impulse people have to scratch a violent homophobe to find a closeted LGB person underneath.

Re: Orlando Attack

It's all speculation. I don't need to know his story right now.

I care more about the victims and their loved ones.

I knew there were terrible people in the world before this happened. I know they're still out there. They don't deserve my focus at the moment.
