    Not saying he operated as a complete lonewolf out of nothing, but he is socially a loner. No friends. My theory is that he probably self identified as part of that Ďgroupí of loner racists. Reading journals from past shooters and hopes future shooters will be able to learn from himÖ

    For the Chinese guy, not sure how he justified peaceful reunification by violence.

    100% he is not a lone wolf. These are people who are literally goading each other on to do this and livestream it, and a lot of our politicians and mass media are all too happy to push the narrative that feeds this. The only disassociation at this point is that the Buffalo shooter was one of the few channers who didn't idolize Elliot Rodger, the incel Santa Barbara shooter. Otherwise, a ton of his "manifesto" was lifted straight from the Christchurch shooter's one.

    But hey, both sides, right?

    Loner? Loner, ... or arsehole, who couldn't make friends because he was an arsehole?

    Evidence says the latter.

    But give everyone a participation medal billi thinks he was a loner. So fucking what? Being a loner is NO EXCUSE to go murder innocent people. What did the people he killed have to do with his inability to make friends?

    It's twenty fucking twenty two. People hang out with like minded "friends" online all the time. He was no fucking loner.

    Not finding excuses for him but just trying to profile and understand why would something like this happen again and again at higher frequencies.

    Guns and weapons definitely can be problematic, but the human element is important too. We care for earth enough to notice climate change. Maybe we also need to understand why extreme assholes are being born and raised more and moreÖ

    Oh yeah, I know, itís all Trumpís and Billiís fault.

    Religion is one of the sources for extremism.

    You're the only one here trying to "understand" the racists, so yes. Wear that shit with pride.

    That edgy, contrarian, "i'm a deep thinker" schtik that you keep trying to project, it really comes across as racist sympathiser. You're either with, or against, the racists; there is no middle ground.

    As far as I can tell, buffalo shooter and the Chinese shooter are not religious. I donít understand how religion is at fault?

    You know you sound very much like George W Bush?

    My position is against racism but hope to convert the racists. Thatís what Jesus would do. Also, Jesus is not white so white people really donít have exclusive rights to Jesus!

    As for the China Taiwan issue, Iím all for peaceful willful reunification, but not by threat or force. This mini- Putin is repeating the same mistake.

    Okay, I was incorrect. The chinese shooter is actually a self proclaimed Christian. Even used black tape to make a cross on his car. However, he never talked about christianity... or about anything else according to his roommate in the above AP article. He also picked a 'taiwanese' church at random apparently. Anyway, do you guys really believe a follower of Christ would end up shooting up other followers of Christ? Somehow the Taiwanese Christians are threatening the Chinese Christians somehow? If the Bible never existed, this tragedy would never have happened?

    Sigh..., if you guys really believe the root/main cause is religion... and if only we could censor all religions of the world and the world will end up a happier place, so be it. I just don't believe religion is the root cause. I really think the problem is the current human condition. Any ideology can end up with extremists who'd turn violent. Censoring the practice of religions or whatever ridiculous 'theories' won't really help sick assholes from becoming bigger assholes because that'll probably only push them underground and read each other's journals in secret.

    I think that's another reason why I want free speech. I'd like to be able to actually talk to these people rather than shunning them. Of course I know I'm no psychologist nor am I powerful like Jesus, pretty sure they will probably put me on ignore too , but it's the least that I could do.
