  1. I honestly have no idea what you’re getting at with this. This world is full of racists and people who hate other religions and there are political parties that prey on those feelings all over the world in many countries.
  2. No one should support either the kid or the senator. A rotten situation. Being ok with assault because you don’t share the political views of the person assaulted is....not good.
  3. If I owned a gun, I’d register it, pay a fee, put a gps tracker on it, or do absolutely anything the govt decided, if it was determined that such a course could save even ONE life.
  4. Perhaps. But whether he intended it or not, he seems to be becoming a sort of "mascot" for these types of people.
  5. I believe one step would be finding users who "encourage" such behavior and penalizing them with the full force of the law. Start giving people 5 year prison sentences for encouraging violence on the internet.
  6. To be fair, you can catch words in an algorithm. It must be incredibly difficult to stop this. When I first saw it, I thought it was a video game. There's likely millions of first-person shooter videos on the site. I'm thinking they need to have some emergency notification system where you can notify a live human that a horrible video is happening, as they simply don't have enough people to "monitor" live streamed videos. Of course that emergency notification system would get abused or used for non-emergencies... Second factor is who knows how many people were actually watching live? If he didn't have many friends, this wouldn't have mattered as no one would have been watching. So maybe the only choice is to disable the ability to "live-stream" unless a user has gone through some sort of verification process? Or..use algorithms to find "at-risk" users, disable their accounts, etc? I thought I read that someone saw his twitter account before it got deleted and it was full of hate/guns, etc? No easy answers.
  7. No idea. I assume it was. I saw it on twitter and clicked away immediately when I realized what it was. I know it was on youtube as well.
  8. Calling the people massacred "crazy" is probably what this guy was saying on the internet 5 years ago.
  9. This is very disturbing. I didn't expect there to actually be multiple shooters, as that rarely seems to happen. With one guy, you can chalk it up to him being a lunatic. But multiple shooters? That requires planning and is much more insidious. It's literally a terrorist attack by a coordinated group. There are also rumors on reddit that this guy was on one of those 4chan sites before and was getting encouraged to do it. I'm not sure if that's true, but if these type of sites become a breeding ground of terrorist activity, I'd expect them to get de-platformed. But then the founder of 4chan is a guy that works for google and 4chan would by far be the biggest site to get banned. Hard to imagine that happening.
  10. I don't think I could disagree more. Even taking the extremist stuff out of it, it's terrible for society.
  11. Tough job for the tech companies to keep that video from being shared.
