So the navy yard shooting seems to have more than one person involved. Twelve people were killed Monday after someone went on a random shooting spree at a Navy yard in the nation’s capital. Washington D.C. went on lock down as the the SWAT scurried around on the street to make sure the capital was safe.
One guy was killed, but they suspect two other guys being involved that are still on the loose.
Authorities are looking for a white and a black man in military clothing who could be suspects, or at least have clues in the navy yard shooting. A dozen people are confirmed dead and many more injured. I wonder what actions are going to be taken after an event like this? It seems like officials like to just straight up go random when something like this happens. People “demand action” so action, without thought, is pushed. Short-term horse-shi’t that satisfies people emotionally is given priority over rudimentary issues that can really address cases like this for what they are.
Who went wild and started shooting at the navy yard and why is still a mystery. I’m sure the media will hound around for a great story. The news is reality TV at it’s finest. Networks fiend and compete with each other, so you’re sure for a quick update when it happens.
According to Obama:
“We still don’t know all the facts. But we do know that several people have been shot and some have been killed. So we are confronting yet another mass shooting. And today it happened on a military installation in our nation’s capital.” – Originally from CNN
Obama said this was a “cowardly act” that targeted military and civilians serving their country.
“They know the dangers of serving abroad,” Obama said, “but today they faced the unimaginable violence that we wouldn’t have expected here at home.”
It’s amazing how great he sounds in situations like this. How does he know what type of “act” this was? He doesn’t know more than the police do, but he has to give his “professional” opinion about it. The American people expect him to say the right things. It’s moments like these that he rehearses for. I got to give him credit though, he has more swagger when it comes to shi’t like this than a lot of other presidents.
Witnesses said that they saw a guy dressed in all black just aim a gun their way and start shooting. Just like with any action, it’s a response to something. It may seem random or maniacal, but labeling it as that isn’t going to solve future events. I hope they really get down to the bottom of what made this guy tick.
In the meanwhile, if there are other’s on the loose, I hope they get subdue’ed before they cause anymore trouble.
