"No motive" but heh, its the guns!

The president acknowledged that "no motive" had yet been determined in the shooting, but nevertheless connected the attack to the mass shooting at Pulse nightclub in Florida six years ago. Police say 22-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich killed at least five people and injured 18 more in his assault on the nightclub.

The shooter was arrested and we now know that he's a serial offender.

Notice that Faux Snooz doesn't report that, but the local media has:

A man by the same name was arrested in June 2021 on felony menacing and kidnapping charges after a woman called El Paso County authorities to report her son “was threatening to cause harm to her with a homemade bomb, multiple weapons and ammunition,” according to the county sheriff’s office.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reported that the district attorney’s office chose not to pursue formal charges and the case was subsequently sealed.

Oh, the District Attorney decided not to pursue charges eh?

So more than a year prior to the shooting the alleged assailant (assuming its the same dude) threatened his family with a homemade bomb and multiple guns and apparently committed the offense of kidnapping yet the local DA refused to pursue the charges.

It is, of course, rather difficult to commit murder in a nightclub when you're sitting in prison on felony kidnapping charges.

So what would have absolutely prevented this individual from committing this offense?

Throwing him in prison for the previous one would have been rather effective, don't you think?

Perhaps the correct action in these circumstance is to throw the DA in prison for the murder committed as a direct consequence of his or her refusal to bring the previous case and prosecute it when, as apparently the case here, said person would have absolutely not been able to commit this set of murders had he been in prison.

When a mom calls the cops on her own child with such allegations and the perp walks....yeah, the gov't has failed.

1. Father
2. Spanking
3. Religion
4. Community beat-down

In order of sequence, for those who resist the passive incentives.

Didn't see reference to any father in the quotes. Kid was raised post 2000-era, wherein spanking was touch-and-go legally. Since bullying has been raised to a UN mediated crisis of lifestyle, not too many kids learn the craft of navigating close quarters with aggressors. Those who snap early or are found to be defective by their peers get treated to attitude adjustments. Make it through those training cycles, and odds favor being balanced enough to roll with the waves. Of course, helps to have a genuine steeping in religion and a tending to the matters spiritual.

Until this happens, nothing will change.

My completely apolitical, doesn't-watch-any-news wife remarked to me yesterday while we were eating Sunday breakfast that the shooter had priors and was on a "watch list". Lotta fucking good all that did, she said. She knows more than she lets on at times.

It appears that we have an engineered crime wave. The DA's are allowing the scumbags to roam free and create havoc and make it appear that there are more crazies than ever before. Why? I suspect to make it easier to convince the public to embrace more government control and loss of rights to improve "safety". We are being overthrown from within every day and nobody notices.

The "progressive" DAs and policing of the last few years has brought the predictable, feral results.

The people have spoken. This is what they get. Enjoy your blue zoo.

Once the perp's skin color became known, the media spin cycle will morphed to fit another narrative.

Will the media somehow turn this yute into a MAGA supramaciss?? Like they did with Paul Pelosi's "attacker"?

I suspect that this story will get memory-holed fairly quickly, as is customary when the perp is not melanated.

How ridiculous are "watch lists" and What does that even mean in the context of law enforcement?

If you do something naughty we might send someone to check up on you within the next week or so, depending on how busy our schedule is.

It's another bit of theater (like masks, jabs, etc.) To make people think something meaningful is being done when the actions are at best meaningless and at worst actively harmful.

@ Engineertype,

I would disagree. The people have spoken and repeatedly so.

This is why you cannot live amongst the "progressive" democrat ilk if you are decent. Or sane.

Ever notice that that watch lists only work on those who are not a problem?

That certain types of behavior is excused for violent people?

And that while race is a factor, it isn't the only one?

Dumb question: I'm assuming the shooter is non-white/black. Could there be any other reason why it's so hard to find pictures of him on the internet? I mean, if he were white, we'd be seeing his mug plastered everywhere under the heading: RACISS white supremacist homophobe!

I hear Biden isn't letting this one go completely to waste-another plea for assault weapon ban.

My 25 year old daughter had an old high school acquaintance get her bank pin number and take $10,000. when she contacted the police they had already been investigating him for the same thing. Over a couple of years he got about a million from friends and family. We were told that Josh Shapiro was handling this case. Yeah the Josh Shapiro that is now Pa. governor. Well he got 1 year in county jail and was allowed out on work release. My daughter gets a check for restitution every month. It will take 74 years till she is paid back. Despite knowing this story I had many friends and family vote for Shapiro.

Until the people are willing to take the head of the prosecutor/DA/whoever that allows this sort of shit to happen -- and they ARE allowing it -- it will not stop.

ONE HEAD on a stick in front of City Hall? It stops.

Kidnapping, forcible rape and murder are three offenses for which there is no excuse for recidivism. Any such event is proof that the system does not work and the parties who made it not work should lose their heads. I am all for "rehabilitation" but this is a repeating pattern; I wrote on a similar sort of event in Florida many years ago with a thug who was a three-time serious felon (armed carjacking, sexual assault of a minor, and then ultimately murder) which was the exact same thing -- the DA/judges/system let him out not once but TWICE; the carjacking wasn't enough and neither was raping a minor.

The third -- the murder -- was him blasting a Marshal coming to serve a warrant on him who he blasted through the door of his residence with a shotgun.

The difference between "kill" and "murder" is that murder, as a subset of kill, is undeserved by the deceased.

The time is coming where Vigilante Justice is going to meted out as you are not able to rely on Police and the DA's to do their jobs. It will be ugly and terrible, but this will be the result.

Tickerguy: Perhaps the correct action in these circumstance is to throw the DA in prison for the murder committed as a direct consequence of his or her refusal to bring the previous case and prosecute it...

Yep... charge the DA with Felony Murder. With that charge, you don't have to be actively involved in the murder itself. The DA was indirectly involved in the latter murder due to his actions (or lack thereof) in the previous felony by the perp.

Attempted vehicular homicide of 25 police trainees requires "more evidence" to hold the suspect, apparently.

Wonder what it will take for the enforcers to realize that the "system" doesn't have their back either.

President Biden used the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Saturday, which killed five people and injured 25 others, to call for a ban on "assault weapons."

Every. Single. Time. These fuckers will never stop this tired strategy. If the nightclub patrons were all armed they might have popped the fucker before he killed five people.

Back in the 90's the late Samuel Francis coined the term "anarcho - tyranny" to describe what we are dealing with here.

Add several decades, Soros' funding these anarchists in positions of power, and we have what you see today.

On Sam Francis

What we have in this country today, then, is both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes; the criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent through exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation, the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through sensitivity training and multiculturalist curricula, hate crime laws, gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally, and a vast labyrinth of other measures. In a word, anarcho-tyranny.
Samuel T. Francis, Synthesizing Tyranny, Chronicles (April 2005). Sam Francis had coined the term anarcho-tyranny in the previous decade.



Regarding the perp in this crime there are the usual questions. History of medications? Psychiatric care? Raised by single parent?

Just too many unanswered questions on situations like this going back to Columbine.

If Musk wants his New Twitter to be successful, he should open a reporter division and send a qualified independent reporter to get the facts.

Was the mothers complaint legitimate?
Her sons medical history including SSRI etc.
Other factors not reported.
Was the DA's dismissal within legal standards?
What is the total taxpayer bill going to be for this pile?

This is a national story, so a Twitter article would be appropriate. If the DA screwed up, 50K twitter responses would get everybody's attention.

There needs to be a method for bypassing the current news media.

Certain crimes ...... rape of a child, murder of a LEO, Mass shooting, etc. these crimes if provable via tape/caught in the act or DNA that prove guilt at 100%....... these crimes should have an expedited (within weeks) docket ending in the death penalty.

Bipolar, bad childhood, no reason is valid for mitigation.

Put this in place and you will see a change.

To the best of my understanding, except for very specific types of procedural misconduct, DAs/prosecutors, judges, parole officials, etc. have complete legal immunity, both civilly and criminally, for their actions and/or results thereof relating to whether perps are prosecuted/incarcerated or not, no matter the actual circumstances of their cases.

Given the huge amount of funding provided by "progressives" and other Soros-types for the destruction of a reasonable society, the ONLY possible recourse available to the citizenry appears to be extra-judicial, IMO. Of course, the entire "justice"/legal system is guaranteed to come down extremely hard on anyone who might try to "fix" the problems of the system caused by the mal-, mis-, and/or non-feasance on the part of these officials.

Unfortunately, this particular situation, like many others, is unlikely to be rectified until after our entire system has crashed and burned.
