The official rules are printed on the inside of the box top, if anyone saved it that is. If I remember the old commercial correctly though it goes something like "Milton Bradley's Mass Shooter! Shoot four, you SCORE!!!"

So it's 4 and wounded does count.

Mass shooting by the police opening fire on a crowd.

Prosecutors say four of the five people wounded outside a high school football game near Philadelphia a month ago — including an 8-year-old girl who was killed — were almost certainly hit by shots fired by police officers.

Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said Monday that he has asked for an investigative grand jury into the Aug. 27 gunfire in Sharon Hill that claimed the life of 8-year old Fanta Bility and wounded four other people.

“We have concluded that the gunfire, combined with the movement of the vehicle, precipitated responsive gunfire from the Sharon Hill police officers,” Stollsteimer said in a statement. “Our initial ballistics analysis has concluded with near certainty that four of the five gunshot victims, including Fanta Bility, were tragically struck by shots fired by the Sharon Hill police officers. We await final forensic reports.”

Not clear from the report, it sounds like the car / occupants were nothing to do with the shooting? It just turned onto the street in front of the officers as the shootings occurred, possibly making the polivce think it was a drive by? Opening fire without a clear (armed) target would appear to be negligent, but given shooting unarmed people on the ground does not appear to be a criminal act I think it is unlikely there will be any criminal charges.

No charges filed in Chicago shootout.

Chicago shooting: Lightfoot, prosecutor Foxx exchange war of words over no charges filed in gang gunfight

Quote:
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is lashing out at Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx for citing "mutual combatants" in her decision not to press charges against those arrested in a deadly daylight neighborhood shootout caught on camera last week between rival gang members.

"She's got to explain to the public, why? Given that evidence, a pod camera right there that captured the entire thing and police officers on the scene in uniform, and a squad car there, why that isn't enough?" Lightfoot said at a press conference Monday. "If the bad guys that are out there that are picking up guns and shooting without any regard for the sanctity of life, do not believe that there's accountability for them, the brazenness will not end. It will escalate, it will continue and our communities will not be safe."

One person was killed and five others were taken into custody and later released in connection to the shootout that happened in the Austin neighborhood Friday on the city’s West Side. Three gang members began shooting into a single-family home in broad daylight in an effort to draw out members of an opposing gang faction. Three individuals inside returned fire, killing one of the offenders outside.

More than 70 rounds of shells were recovered from the shooting captured by a city camera, and a set of uniformed officers in a marked squad car were also on the scene within a short period of time and witnessed the activity, Lightfoot, as well as five alderman, in a letter obtained by Fox 32, implored Foxx to reconsider felony charges, like attempted murder, at least against the two surviving initial aggressors.
. . .

"We can't live in a world where there is no accountability," the mayor said. "When there's no accountability, meaning individuals who wreak havoc, who fire indiscriminately or fire at a target but without any regard for the sanctity of life and the health and well-being of others, if they do not feel like the criminal justice system is going to hold them accountable, we're going to see a level of brazenness that will send the city into chaos. We cannot let that happen."

The was a school shooting in Arlington, TX.

Quote:
Three people were reportedly shot at Timberview High School in Arlington Wednesday morning.

The Mansfield Independent School District confirmed the Arlington Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and other neighboring law enforcement agencies cleared the school after an active shooter situation that happened just before 10 a.m.
Link

No fatalities. So that's good. It looks like the shooter is still alive, but has fled. It's an ongoing story.

Regarding the Plymouth (UK) mass shooting last August, a police officer and civilian worker at Devon & Cornwall Police have been given misconduct notices. From all of the information about the shooter and his behaviour and incidents before the shooting, it is clear he should not have been given his gun back. There has been a human break down or error or incompetence or combination thereof, that enabled this shooting.

I have nothing to add.

But, I was in a Mansfield ISD high school when Timberview opened. If I'm remembering correctly because I was entering my senior year I could choose to go to Timberview or stay at my current school Summit High. I wanted to go to Timberview cus it was new, but I would have to drive and I didn't have a car.

My brothers were Gophers, I was nearly a Warrior, but we moved to Mansfield.

Edit: I got my mascots backward, so Go Warriors!

As has been shown in this thread, the poster in question will display a list of links to what he only assumes are non-white shootings. Perusing many of the links posted reveals no mention of race or motive in many of them, even when seeking the info from other sources.

So don't bother asking, you need to look for yourself, or simply assume it's BS.

To be fair, every time someone brings this up he does make sure to link one or two shootings where the perpetrator is known to be white for the sake of deniability. Heh.

False.

I provide links to every mass shooting reported by gunviolencearchives.org.

Here's a link to GVA's mass shooting page, find one that I left out where the perpetrator is known to be white. Just one.

Better pack a lunch, you'll be there all day trying.

While we wait for Checkmite to produce an example of a shooting I skipped because the perpetrator was known to be white, let's do


The weekly weekday update:

Minneapolis, Minnesota

4 wounded.

Drive-by at a gas station dubbed "Murder Station" by the locals.


Rockford, Illinois

1 killed, 3 wounded.

Drive-by. The police are unsure it's gang-related.


Cleveland, Ohio

4 wounded.

Shots fired into a home recording studio, probably recording some bluegrass gospel.


Baltimore, Maryland

1 killed, 4 wounded.

ShotSpotter (a tool of white supremacy, or something) alerted police to this mass shooting.


New Orleans, Louisiana

2 killed, 2 wounded.

Drive-by. They were working for an "at risk youth" program in a church parking lot at 1:30 in the afternoon.


But Chicago!

4 wounded (including two 15-year-olds)

Drive-by. 2:15 a.m. on a school night.


Milwaukee, Wisconsin

3 killed, 1 wounded.

Someone was mad because they had to drive around a car in a parking lot. Argument led to gunplay.


Milwaukee, Wisconsin

5 wounded.

Police heard gunshots and found four wounded inside a home.


Montgomery, Alabama

1 killed (17-year-old), 3 wounded (including 17-year-old).

This mass shooting report is late to the party, I will count it this week since it wasn't counted last month.


Baltimore, Maryland

4 wounded.

Quote:
The quadruple shooting happened just a mile away from Broadway East, where two women were killed and six others injured in two separate shootings on Wednesday and Thursday.


11 mass shootings.

9 killed.

40 wounded.

0 suspected angry school moms (a.k.a. domestic terrorists) on the trigger.

Washington DC

1 killed, 3 wounded.

No details available other than the suspect is a large, light-colored sedan. Such a strange phenomenon in Washington DC with all these vehicles committing mass shootings.


Livingston, Louisiana

2 dead, 3 wounded.

White guy, Matthew Mire, ambushed and murdered a state trooper after committing two armed home invasions where he shot three other people, one dead.


Denver, Colorado

1 killed, 3 wounded.

No new shootings to add from the weekend so let's get to the seven day count.


18 mass shootings.

79 wounded.

16 killed.

0 RMVE-WS or parents who are angry at school board members are suspected.

Maybe next week.

Maybe next week by this time Checkmite will provide us with one example of a known white shooter that I skipped.

This week's mass shooting count wraps up in

Houston, Texas

6 wounded.

A gathering at a park led to an altercation which led to gunplay.

Not one of the victims bothered to call the police.


14 mass shootings.

66 wounded.

12 killed.

I'm sure if any of the shooters were white domestic violent extremists or Trumpers the DOJ has warned us about, there will be a thread here at ISF for everyone to proclaim how right-wingers are the biggest threat to America while largely ignoring the other 570 mass shootings that have occurred this year.

GVA posted another weekend mass shooting after my post last night.

Racine, Wisconsin

6 wounded.

Vigil for the one year anniversary of the murder of Marcus Caldwell at the corner of Yout and Carter. Police were called at 11:20 p.m. because the large crowd was loud and there was reckless driving occurring.

When the police arrived, multiple shooters opened fire. People were shot, cars were shot, houses were shot, yards were shot, trees were shot, front porches were shot, doors were shot.

Quote:
WISN 12 saw at least five homes with security cameras, but each homeowner denied to share footage.

Many of them said they were too afraid to share it, because of possible retaliation.
Snitches get stitches culture.


15 mass shootings.

72 wounded.

12 killed.

Parkland shooter pleads guilty today. What is the deal with him wearing a shirt that is four sizes too big, and not even shuffing up the cuffs? Is it a lawyer ploy to try to gain sympathy, making him look smaller and more frail?

Too late, ************.

It was an ongoing story here at ISF until we learned it was the wrong type of school shooting, which surprises no one who has spent much time on this board. Anyway, let's buck that trend.

Initially the family stated that the shooter was actually the victim and he was defending himself from a bully. The family bailed him out, threw him a getting out of jail party and set up a go fund me page. That was good enough for the most of the media and the "skeptics" here at ISF.

The Arlington chief of police had this to say:
Quote:
"This was not a bullying incident. I just want to take that narrative out of the equation," the chief said. "Mr. Simpkins is involved in high-risk activity, and that high-risk activity led to the disagreement within the community."
Anyone want to bet this "high risk activity" involved young Mr. Simpkins dealing drugs and ripping people off in the process?
