Jacksonville video game shooter David Katz had 26 police callouts to his family home, was hospitalized twice in psychiatric units, took anti-psychotic drugs, and was deemed to have a capacity for violence by a psychologist - but still passed gun buying checks.

In other words, nobody could've possibly seen this coming.

So, yesterday I noticed the huge american flag of the shopping center I usually get lunch at was at half mast. This wasn't surprising. While I know that this time it was probably at half mast for McCain, it was also half mast for a week after each major shooting. What surprised me was the realization that I've seen it at half mast more commonly than full this year.

First they came for the Jews in general, but not ones actually identical to me, so I did not speak up.

Yeah, that's pretty much the only step in that one.

This is such an incredibly perfect reflection of America I god damn want to die.

Hero with gun saves the day at a potential mass shooting *Crowd begins to cheer*.
He was black *Crowd pauses, uncertain*
A police officer shot him *Crowd cheers with renewed enthusiasm*

Gotta love that one guy seeing oppression of whites here because they never run these stories when officer hair trigger is black.

I'm guessing there's a pretty simple explanation for that.

I definitely feel things about that existing, but no thing that can be expressed accurately or meaningfully with words. I don't have the time or the dairy to record it, but just imagine me tantrum screaming while liquid shit violently spews out of me and that's about my reaction.

I attempted to contextualize the video with text a couple of times, and then I just gave up because I could never do it justice.

EDIT: I can tell you my worst immediate thought though. "This looks like a really good asymmetrical multiplayer game"

Watching what the military are actually doing is a good litmus test for how fucked we are, bypassing all the sound and fury of politics. For example, while half the planet are still insisting climate change is a myth the various navies have spent a decade developing strategies that assume a permanent year-round northwest passage.

At some point you have to wonder about the sanity of anyone who works with this simulator, from developers to the SPCs training on this. At best I suppose they will offer trauma counselling for people who had to work on this; keep it off the streets; and hope to God they didn't set up a number of Kobayashi Maru missions.

The human condition of "if I was at the mass shooting, I would have heroically stopped it with my ninja skills and my lovingly named and polished AR-15, her name is Jasmine and I am perpetually erect when within 10 feet of her" is endlessly hilarious to me, especially after gun nuts present at a mass shooting realize how wrong they were, post youtube videos about how helpless they were to stop it, and get called pussies by all the other gun nuts who have not personally been present at a mass shooting (yet)

and by "endlessly hilarious to me", I mean I have developed that response as a defense mechanism against suicide and entirely giving up on humanity forever
