El Paso Gunman Allegedly Posted ‘Wildly Anti-Immigrant' Essay Online | MSNBC

  1. Seems he had a change of heart at the end. His “manifesto” says that he intends to die 1 way or another. Claims that under no circumstances will he surrender.

  2. Whats happening to this World is really sad so we should pray for blessing over USA and all the World to come to Jesus and have peace with eachother. Jesus Protect USA and all the world. Amen

  3. Politicians: ‘You have our ‘hypocritical’ prayers…..that won’t go higher than the ceiling”.

    • @Matt Thomas – your god seems to be powerless. What is the point in praying to a god who does nothing???

    • @Sara Pulford for what crime?

    • Matt Thomas while I respect spirituality and faith in God, your comment is a prime example of why it is SO important to have separation of Church and State in the government.

      I agree though that prayer is good to help these victims and their families find peace. 🙏

    • @Chris Hardin : Where have you been since Jan 2017 Chris ? If you don’t know which CRIMES, plural, by now then you have to be a Fox watching Trump lover who believed him when he told one of his first crowd of rally gowers to not believe what they see or hear.

  4. so if the government knows about these kind of stuff ahead of time why don’t the take that person into custody and get them help???

  5. God Bless Texas, my prayers go out to you all.🙏🏻

    • @Adrian Dejacomo dont nuke texas just nuke all of the problem people in it. aka trump supporting trash lol.

      That really isn’t enough by anyone anymore. Activism is the only way forward.

      ‘Activism’; and by that you mean?

      What are you going to activate? What are you going to petition for? What do you think the solution is? Im 90% certain you’re completely wrong about what the problem is.

    All them people walking bruh I would dart outa that place even if they caught them lol

    Rip all people who died 😔

  7. Prayers are with the families.

  8. Interrupting because of Joe Biden speaking in Vegas what about the other candidates the president is already chosen remember that people and these families just lost their loved ones and they’re still talking about politics of a candidate that hasn’t even made it in office yet we have no power my heart goes out to the families not politics

    I believe he should be treated like a terrorist and dealt with accordingly. My heart is out to all the relatives and loved ones that were affected.

    These are walking demons! People are so sick in the head it is just absolutely horrid. Cowards used guns! What a POS that could have been me, my mom, my nephew, anyone my friends! People always seek attention.

    Obsessed with Warfare always have been.

    Being evil and spewing hate whether online or in-person is far from freedom of speech. It is absurd and disgusting that these type of things continue to go on. Intimidated by difference which will never stop.

  11. My heart is breaking for the families and friends of the victims, as well as those left traumatised by bearing witness to such horrors.

  12. wow imagine how evil you’d have to be to do this to people just shopping with their families. real sad it’s 2019 and you still gotta watch your back everywhere you go.

    When will people understand that everyone in the United States are from immigrant decent except for the Native Americans.

    Living only minutes away from the area is quite the scariest feeling to have inside. My husband and I hooked on the TV since 10 am up until 10:45 pm. Our hearts hurt so heavy for our community. El Paso TX IS and WILL ALWAYS be the safest city in the United States. This man was not from our city. We’ve never had anything like this. Seeing stuff like this on the news in other states is shocking but seeing this happening I your city is beyond words. Calling family member to check in on them to make sure they’re safe. Hugging my babies tonight so tight because the ones that lost their lives on August 3rd early morning won’t be able to kiss their loved ones nor hug them goodbye.

    He is a terrorist. Simple as that and politics should be left out. Deal with him and move on

      Stone Men – He didn’t stole division the way this administration has. There are no correlating comparisons.

      There was never, chants in his rallies to “go back” and disparage black districts or even white districts for that matter.

    • Michael Lopez | August 4, 2019 at 12:01 PM | Reply

      Stone Men – Trump condemned it because he has no other option at this point aside from saying I endorse these attacks or something to the effect “these are rare instances and there are many of these terrorists / shooters.

    • @Michael Lopez that’s your opinion

    • @Wig Split BS!

    • @Stone Men you’re too stupid to realize what an argument is, aren’t you? Deflection isn’t one, that’s what people do when they haven’t got one. An argument presents facts that support or detract from a position on its merits. You haven’t got any therefore you brought nothing of value to the discussion, but I’m sure that’s the story of your life.

      Good luck in life. Maybe a formal, or on line class on argumentation would benefit you. Look for a neutral institution, not one that will just indoctrinate you and feed you talking points. Be a real free thinker.

    Media should start to call this what is it
    an act of TERRORISM not massmurder

    • styrelse fksu | August 4, 2019 at 11:51 AM | Reply

      @Derrick Vineyard “mainstream media only reports on white male shooters”
      WRONG WRONG and WRONG again
      Ever heard of 9/11

      Ever heard of the the Boston marathon bombers ?
      you say media newer reported on that?
      where have you been hiding ? Under a rock perhaps

      the thing is that white supremacist terror attacks mostly in the form of mass shootings but also in the forms of sending pipe bombs to liberal politicians is far more common these days then other form of terrorist attacks

      but the media doesn’t call them terrorist attacks because of whose behind them (non Muslims) they call them mass shootings, mass murders or a lonly crazy person instead of what it really is, domestic terrorism

      All cheered on by the president of the united stated

      he is to stupid to realize it but when he says that Mexicans are rapists and that Baltimore are a rat infested place that no human being wants to live in and banning People from Muslim countries to enter the United states he is fueling the hatred that already exists in the United States and some lunatic will think that he or she has to o something about the problem

      That is why there is school shootings and massacres like the one in Texas and bombing of moscques, synagoges newspapers and politicians homes

      and of course the other reason is that there is to many guns with no control on who has one what so ever

      And nothing will happen on the issue of gun control as long as all the republicans and some of the democrats are bought and paid for by the gun lobby

    • Yeah. Mexico should be ready to invade. Oh wait. They already have!!!

    • @Tyrone Hutton Tyrone needs a safe space. Hurry Tyrone.

    • The enemy is the democratic party who keeps these caravans and illegal alien’s pouring into our sacred country you moron.

      @Force Ten sacred? There’s nothing sacred about this country who let me remind you murder natives to take over.

      Secondly, it appears you have a lot of anger and under anger lies fear. Seek help.
      Peace and love ✌️

  18. All this it’s my right to bare arm especially in a state like Texas but yet no one stopped the gunman smh

    • They interviewed a black man conceiled-carrying a gun, but he was more afraid of getting shot by the cops than by the shooter, so he didn’t take out his gun.

    Wait. So this person was shooting Spanish and Latin people because he thought that they were immigrants? Wow. That’s just sick. Really foul and twisted. This wasn’t pro-Americanism or patriotism, this was hate-filled terrorism.

  20. FAKE NEWS..
    Any Anonymous shill can post on 8 chan… Even MSNBC??
    You know like anyone can put FAKE NEWS out there?
    Look up Operation Mockingbird!
