Pretty chilling if confirmed.

Last edited Thu Oct 1, 2015, 05:11 PM - Edit history (2)

Evidently this was posted on 4chan yesterday:

I repeat, if confirmed
I am trying to find out more
kp





UPDATE:
Best Source Of Info I Can Find:
The identities of the shooter and the victims were unavailable at press time. At least 11 had been transported to Mercy Medial Center, according to Mercy spokeswoman Kathleen Nickel, and two of those died. One victim was life-flighted north. As many as 13 victims were dead and the alleged shooter was reportedly killed.

Kortney Moore, 18, from Rogue River, was in her Writing 115 class in Snyder Hall when one shot came through a window. She saw her teacher get shot in the head. The shooter was inside at that point, and he told people to get on the ground. The shooter was asking people to stand up and state their religion and then started firing away, Moore said. Moore was lying there with people who had been shot.


There are unconfirmed reports that the shooter had either been shot or had shot himself. An official confirmed that the shooter had been “neutralized.”

Brady Winder, 23, of Portland, said he was in the room next door when he heard a loud thud that didn’t sound like a gunshot. He then heard a percussion of gunshots and the students all fled out the front door.

2. Between that and George Zimmerman's Twitter page, I'm almost physically ill from the internet

Even if that's a fake or a hoax, it's still incredibly disgusting

Makes me want to move to a deserted tropical island.

especially on a site like that. The default assumption is not to take it seriously. Because most of the time it is trolling.

and the reaction is "meh". I guess these are the times we live in though.

13. We have dehumanized ourselves pretty well as a species in the 20th and 21st century.

 

We value cruelty and inhumanity as positive traits! Something is very wrong here.

14. Thousands of times per day.

 

It is incredibly common to see. It often gets reported (or someone will say they report it, you know how the internet is), but there's a ton of it. You have to understand, one of the long-time sayings of the site is "If you take anything posted here as serious, you're a fool". That some people do post some serious things doesn't change the fact that 99.999999% of it is BS.

It's kind of like conspiracy theories. You know 99.99999% of them are totally bogus, but every now and then one will be true enough to keep the crazies involved in the really outlandish ones.

10. The fact that it's been scrubbed would seem to be a confirmation

but all the callow jackasses egging him on? "I didn't think he was really gonna do it!" will be their defense and in 90% of cases, they'd have been right.

17. This might be the confirmation:

13 Killed in Shooting at Oregon's Umpqua Community College:

At least 13 people were dead and more than 20 others were injured after a gunman opened fire Thursday morning on the campus of Umpqua Community College in southwest Oregon, authorities told NBC News.

It wasn't immediately known whether the gunman was among the dead after the shooting near Roseburg, which was called in at 10:38 a.m. (1:38 p.m. ET), officials said. State Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum told NBC News simply that he had been "neutralized."

20. I bet that the motive was that he hated women and wouldn't be surprised if the victims are all women

I fully expect the media to sweep it under the rug if this is the case.

26. On the shooters question of which religion the victims belonged to.

From all the different reports I have seen; only the statement of Ms. Moore says the the shooter had a passing interest in the religion of people he had decided to shoot.
I have not seen any screen shots of the shooter's postings expressing religious leaning.
I have not seen screen shots expressing why he respected the IRA. (religious, ethnic, notoriety, the length of time the IRA has been in existence, or simply the word republican).

How was that evolved into the shooter was deliberately hunting Christians?
Anyone have links to something confirming this?
Were their potential victims spared by their answer to the religious question?

Or is this fear mongering based on a random question posed by someone who had crossed a number of mental lines?

I am not being snarky, I will face relatives who soak Faux News up like vomit filled sponges. They truly believe Christians are being hunted like English foxes in some vaguely described location.

29. I just saw on a news site.

On a profile page, he posted "organized religion" under the dislikes category.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/10/01/umpqua-gunman-id-d-as-chris-harper-mercer.html



I'm not sure how "dislike" is equated to "opened fire upon".
Just seems contrived to me, with the level of exposure currently available.

30. Reports from at least 2 survivors

 

Oregon shooter said to have singled out Christians for killing in ‘horrific act of cowardice’

"In one classroom, he appeared to single out Christian students for killing, according to witness Anastasia Boylan.

“He said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,'” Boylan’s father, Stacy, told CNN, relaying his daughter’s account while she underwent surgery to treat a gunshot to her spine.

“And then he shot and killed them.”

Another account came from Autumn Vicari, who described to NBC News what her brother J.J. witnessed in the room where the shootings occurred. According to NBC: “Vicari said at one point the shooter told people to stand up before asking whether they were Christian or not. Vicari’s brother told her that anyone who responded ‘yes’ was shot in the head. If they said ‘other’ or didn’t answer, they were shot elsewhere in the body, usually the leg.”

That he shot Christians in the head, and those who answered with a different religion - he shot in the leg.
