Rev Sen Warnock Has Had Just About Enough Of Well-Regulated American Gun Violence

Another day, another mass shooting … literally.

Wednesday afternoon, 24-year-old Deion Patterson opened fire in a downtown Atlanta medical office building. He killed a 39-year-old woman and injured four other women, aged 25, 39, 56, and 71. Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens said the four injured women “are fighting for their lives at Grady Hospital."

According to Atlanta Police Chief Darin Schierbaum, it's unclear if Patterson had specifically targeted the victims. We also don't know if their gender was a factor. However, Patterson's mother was with him during the shooting. Fortunately, she was uninjured. Patterson's family is cooperating with law enforcement.

Atlanta police lifted a shelter-in-place advisory more than two hours after the shooting when they could find no evidence that Patterson was still in the area. However, the police urged people to stay away from the area of investigation and especially from the suspect if they were to encounter him. Patterson remained at large until Wednesday evening when he was arrested without major incident.

VA School Board: Workers Comp Should Cover Teacher’s Shooting By Six-Year-Old Just Fine

Abby Zwerner has sued the Newport News school board for $40 million.

Virginia teacher Abby Zwerner was shot in January by a six-year-old student at Richneck Elementary School. The child pulled a handgun from his desk, pointed it at Zwerner, and fired a single bullet through her hand and into her chest. She is still recovering physically and emotionally from this very American experience.

The school was warned three times that the six-year-old student had a gun but did nothing, and Zwerner has sued Newport News school board for $40 million. She accuses school leaders of "recklessly disregarding the safety" of everyone on school grounds. The school board filed a motion to dismiss the suit last week. Not even the best lawyers could argue that Zwerner's injuries are psychosomatic, but their actual argument is only slightly less absurd.

Law firm Pender and Coward (that's right) represents the Newport News School Board, former Newport News School Superintendent Dr. George Parker III, and former Richneck Elementary Principal Briana Foster-Newton. (Parker was fired outright after the shooting, but Foster-Newton was reassigned.) Pender and Coward argue that Zwerner's claims fall under Virginia's Workers’ Compensation Act, as if her injuries were something she could have reasonably expected to receive at her place of employment.

TX Gunman Kills Five, Including Child, With America's Favorite Freedom Maker, The AR-15

We should never consider this normal.

Wilson Garcia and his wife Sonia Guzman were trying to keep their baby asleep Friday night, but his Cleveland, Texas, neighbor Francisco Oropeza was shooting his gun in his yard, which is both distracting and terrifying. Garcia politely asked Oropeza to stop, but Oropeza — with all the swaggering bravado a gun provides — refused: His yard. His rules. (This is not actually true. Even Texas has some minimal rules about firearm discharge on private property.)

Garcia threatened to call the police, and Oropeza, who'd reportedly been drinking, went inside his house and returned with a AR-15 — the weapon of choice for mass shootings. He walked over to Garcia's home and shot and killed Guzman, who'd just called the police and was standing in the front door. The massacre continued, as Oropeza fatally shot four other people "almost execution stye" inside the home.

A devastated Garcia said in an interview: "He wanted to kill us all to leave no evidence."

One of the survivors of Oropeza's rampage told Edgar Sandoval at the New York Times how Oropeza shot his sister, nephew, and other loved ones. He hid his wife and their six-month-old in a closet. Sandoval tweeted, "He left Honduras 5 yrs ago to escape gang violence & found himself victim of America’s gun epidemic."

Sonia Guzman was 25. The FBI has identified the other victims as Diana Velazquez Alvarado, 21; Juliza Molina Rivera, 31; Jose Jonathan Casarez, 18; and eight-year-old Daniel Enrique Laso.

Pentagon Leaker Idjit Was Caught Before He Could Do Any Mass Shootings

He seems nice.

Federal prosecutors argued at a hearing yesterday that Massachusetts Air National Guard guy Jack Teixeira needs to stay in jail before his trial for allegedly leaking classified Pentagon documents. The 21-year-old walking security risk should be detained until trial because he gave up a ton of military secrets for the sake of impressing his gamer dork friends on Discord, the prosecutors said. Teixeira also regularly talked about his desire to equip a minivan or SUV as an "assassination van" and to "kill a [expletive] ton of people," for the lulz we guess. The DOJ detention memo did not specify whether that was a shit ton of people or a fuck ton of people, nor whether, if it were the latter, he meant a metric or standard fuck ton.

Magistrate Judge David Hennessy didn't make an immediate decision yesterday on whether Teixeira will be kept in jail before trial, or to grant his attorneys' request that he be allowed to stay under supervision at his father's home, because he's a good boy who would definitely stay off the internet and there's no chance he'd flee.
