It was just minutes before the shooting when he saw the post.
At 11:05 a.m. on Saturday, Colin, a 25-year-old in Yucaipa, California, logged into 8chan.
It was only his second time ever on the site, he told BuzzFeed News. Someone close to him is a QAnon believer, and after hearing them spout "some really crazy shit," Colin went on the site out of curiosity.
8chan an online message board full of white supremacists, conspiracy theorists, Trump fanatics, and violent trolls was where the Christchurch mosque shooter first announced his plans for the attack.
So, when Colin saw a post that reminded him of that, he immediately felt uneasy.
I cant remember why, but the picture and the first line of the preview caught my attention," said Colin, who asked his last name not be used to avoid 8chan trolls. "And I thought, is this like New Zealand?"
He posted an image of the 8chan post timestamped 11:07 a.m. PT police said the shooter opened fire "just before" 11:30 a.m.
An FBI official told BuzzFeed News they received multiple reports about the post, but the attack happened before they were able to confirm the poster's identity and do something about it.
"Approximately five minutes before the shooting at Chabad Synagogue in Poway, California, the FBI received submissions through its online tip website and tip phone number regarding an anonymous threatening post on a social media site," the official said. "The submissions included a link to the post, but did not offer specific information about the post's author or threat location. Although FBI employees immediately took action to determine the post's author, the shooting occurred before the suspect could be fully identified."
"The FBI thanks the alert citizens who saw and reported the post," the official added.
Wow, I thought it was bad when you were parroting the NY times and WAPO
A new low...
Ask President Trump, Bozo. He's been under attack since before the '16 election. If he were the tyrant the left portrays they'd be in camps or dead.
Of course not.
And doesn’t know or care that various people who want to take down chan post crap on their specifically to disfame and destroy it.
Megan; The border patrol agent was armed and returned fire, which, along with a jammed weapon, was the reason we are not looking at 40 or 50 people wounded or killed.
“An off-duty Border Patrol agent who was working as a security guard at the synagogue fired on the shooter several times as he drove way, but only struck his car.”
So I wonder if this was another shooter known to the FBI with a history of psychiatric treatment hearing voices. Strange how these shooters disappear into custody and we dont hear anything more about their motives.
