The First Lady and I are heartbroken over this senseless and cowardly attack, and we offer our unwavering support to the victims, their families, and all the people of Midland and Odessa, Governor Abbott said in a written statement provided to Breitbart Texas. The state of Texas and the Department of Public Safety are working closely with local law enforcement to provide resources as needed and deliver justice for this heinous attack.

Great. A white male in his twenties.
Watching a local TV news feed online. No report yet on what kind of weapon was used. https://www.newswest9.com/video/news/live_breaking/breaking-news-video/513-4917029b-e62d-4c74-8c05-7602d147f9f5
No ID of the shooter(s) yet.
They need to sanitize his social media presence.
Sounds like ANTIFA.
Meanwhile, the lawyers sit secure in their mansions, not caring the damage they’ve done over the decades with all their overly liberal policy-making, regulations, and general molly-coddling of criminal types.
Not to mention governmental destruction of the family, parental rights, etc.
If the perp wasn’t white then the cops would have tried to keep it a secret for as long as they could.
Has someone defaced this monument? The base displays what appears to be a large stain running top to bottom.
They have to scrub his/her/its social media accounts before releasing his/her/its identity because he/she/it does not belong to the demographic they wish to smear.
I think it’s just natural coloring in the limestone. (not certain of course)
Fox News is saying he was a white male in his thirties.
Please don’t tell me you are surprised?? We all know only white men can commit a crime./s off
Like with all the Arkancide victims, after a while you just sit back and think about the odds of all this happening, every few weeks, without some sort of external influence.
I suspect more will be happening as we approach the election. Wouldn’t surprise me to see one every other day the last 2 months up to the election. You know white men just can’t stand the idea of Trump not being re-elected!!
Side not for later: What’s with the misuse of the phrase “active shooter.”
I’d like to know what DPS stands for and why he was pulled over.
Gun control liberal/socialists to the cameras in 3..2..1
DEMANDING SOMETHING BE DONE NOW!
DPSHOULDTIRED is department of public safety
I agree but we are talking Odessa here. No liberals at all or policies. This place is as American as apple pie. I kinda think its humorous that people are upset the shooters white. It cant be anybody else besides a white person. This is Odessa.
