    FX makes me mad. They never really got behind this show.

    If not for the miracle of the DVR, I wouldn’t have even known this show is back on.

    Tyrant!!

    This website is a mass shooting tracker. I believe the magic number is 4. To be a mass shooter, you have to hit four people but they do not necessarily have to die. Well, you can see that just in 2016 there is an outrageous number of mass shootings.

    So, the obvious pattern we are seeing is that these shooters who want national attention, those who believe they can change the course of events by their actions, have to up the ante. Otherwise, your mass shooting remains a local issue which most of them are. Examples:

    Tucson – attempt to kill a congressional representative to show hatred of government
    Aurora – open fire in a crowded movie theater for high injury and body count
    Newton – open fire on little children in school for high body count
    Charleston – open fire on black folks praying in a church for white supremacy
    Orlando – open fire with an assault weapon in a crowded LGBT nightclub for highest body count
    Dallas – open sniper fire on police monitoring a protest

      Notice how many unknown shooters there are. But still, think about what it takes to get recognized, and that is certainly the goal of domestic terrorists. That is why these acts are becoming increasingly outrageous.

    Trained assassins? No one on the GROUND

    So the answer to keeping cops safe for white people mean they kill black folks?

    TGIF

    The family of these slaughtered cops are grieving. May God have mercy on them.

    So riddle me this: Why don’t we see these cops speak out about the ongoing senseless MURDERS of Black people?

    Now they trot out the black guy. The suspect said he wants to hurt white people? The suspect I dead so that’s hear say.

    THIS WHOLE incident STINKS.

    I’m going to focus on the two killing of black communities this week.

      The focus is now on Dallas. WE need to keep up our support of Alton and Philando. The cops are NOT our friends. I don’t care what city they’re from.
