Gunman Stops Himself

The lamestream media told you:

A gunman barricaded the back door of a community center with his car and then opened fire on a room full of immigrants taking a citizenship class Friday, killing 13 people before apparently committing suicide, officials said. Investigators said they had yet to establish a motive for the massacre.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

"Police said they arrived within two minutes... Police heard no gunfire after they arrived but waited for about an hour before entering the building to make sure it was safe for officers," according to seven AP reporters and their Research Center.

Endless footage of heavily armed police standing around outside, feckless and impotent, dominated news coverage, along with reports of searches of the perpetrator's home, as if it made a difference, and speculation on his motive, as if it made a difference.

The only protect-and-serve provided by officials were cleanup and talking to cameras. Police didn't even end the melee, the shooter had to do that himself.

Officials did make boisterous calls to disarm everyone who didn't do anything, failed to acknowledge that we have totally outlawed what happened, and didn't mention they helped ensure the victims were unarmed. Speculations on the cause lacked any recognition of our eroded moral fabric, lack of religion, debauchery of entertainment, lack of responsibility, removal of manners and civility from schooling, etc. that the public can see but the media apparently cannot.

NYC mayor Bloomberg got copious air time, though it's not his city, but he does have armed agents  around him at all times.

At least one police spokesperson lamented, even though police never fired a shot in defense of the slain victims, "We're out gunned." This is simply not true, of course, and is in fact a blatant lie. Virtually every major municipality has access to federally funded full-auto firearms that the public cannot get (unless they buy them from Mexican drug cartels and sneak them over the border).
