We also have 9/11 to thank for the disastrous PATRIOT Act and the current culture of mass surveillance and warrantless searches.

Unbelievable ego and lack of decorum in the face of tragedy.

Man Murdered Wife, Shot Daughter After Being Sucked Down ‘Q Rabbit Hole,’ Family Confirms
https://ca.movies.yahoo.com/man-murdere ... 02618.html
A Michigan man shot dead by police after murdering his wife and badly injuring one of his daughters had reportedly been sucked into the QAnon conspiracy theory after refusing to accept that Donald Trump had lost the 2020 presidential election.

She wrote: “In 2020 after Trump lost, my dad started going down the Q rabbit hole. He kept reading conspiracy theories about the stolen election, Trump, vaccines, etc.

“Well, at around 4 AM on September 11, he had an argument with my mother and he decided to take our guns and shoot her, my dog and my sister. My mother succumbed to her wounds and my sister is in the hospital right now.

“My dad also fired back at the cops and they killed him.

“I’m shocked and I don’t even know what to say.

“Fuck you, Qanon. I hope the FBI tightens its grip on you and that your lackies rot in prison (and hell) for poisoning so many people.”

“Right-wing extremism is not funny, and people need to watch their relatives and if they have guns, they need to hide them or report them or something because this is out of control,” she said.

So sad. And unfortunately, these crazies have more guns than most pockets of society.

If only the daughter had been packing heat (pref. AR-15), this whole thing could have been prevented.

The Colorado shooter who killed 5 people at a gay bar, the local news found his dad and interviewed him. He seems ... not well? Seemed much more concerned with whether his own son might be gay than the idea that he might have murdered people.



Edit: It sounds like this dad was a former porn actor? And has also been on a reality TV show called "Intervention" to help curb a meth addiction?

I didn't click on the tweet but that last daily beast headline sounded like a X-rated version of the Simpson's Todd McClure introduction.

Anyway, he sounded like a very thoughtful and mature individual in the first tweet. I can't imagine how his son ended up that way. /s

I can’t imagine the killer turning out like he did with such a great role model his father was. /s

And half the country has Trump as their role model.
