If there are more killed than wounded, then the shooter is likely not black.

If there are more wounded than killed, then the shooter is likely black.

For example:

@bboogie17’s Corollary — If the shooter’s name is Jonathanlacory, he’s black.

  1. Well, from video tape, they seem to jump around excitedly while they shoot.

    And why not, it’s FUN to shoot at people. It’s like a live video game, and what’s the harm of it? . . . Oh, yeah, except the HARM of it.

  6. Additional laws include:
    1) If they use a bomb, then they are probably Muslim.
    2) If two or more people perpetrated the attack, they are probably Muslim.
    3) If they picked a random target (a venue with no political or personal significance to the attacker(s)) there is a solid chance they are Muslim.

    If all three criteria are satisfied the odds that they are Muslim approaches 100%. If there’s an act of violence in the news and it meets all three criteria, but they don’t know (or won’t say) who did it, rest assured – it was Muslims.

    Reasoning:

    1) Building a working bomb requires some degree of training. Easy for Muslims to find, but not most other people.

    2) Coordinating with other people requires enough trust to risk bringing in other people and also some solid training to really be successful. That means a culture of hatred and contempt, which is common among Muslims but not most other groups (except maybe the Dem Party and the Chamber of Commerce).

    3) Muslims are happy to kill infidels – any infidels. Most other perps want to hurt specific people (fellow students or coworkers) or attack a target with some political significance (e.g., the Oklahoma City Federal Building).

  7. The week that George Floyd died in Minneapolis over 20 people were murdered during that weekend in Chicago during multiple mass shootings. So once in awhile Black mass shooters put up John Wick level impressive numbers with firearms. But since George Floyd was the center of the universe that weekend the bloodbath in Chicago only received coverage from The Fox News Channel and local Chicago news. CNN and MSNBC were asleep on the wheel because over 20 murder victims in 1 weekend in Chicago does not fit the false narrative that there is an epidemic of White Supremacists hunting Black males for sport!

    I used to work at a cable firm where a 24/7 cable news feed played in the office background. In the aftermath of a Muslim mass shooting, the cable firm's crack reporters were champing at the bit to be the ones to break the next mass shooting story, which they were sure was gonna be a rightwing white guy, because of course everybody knows that's who mass shooters really are, and they were keen to get the Muslim shooting off the front pages of everyone's mind. Unfortunately for these true-believer leftwing journalists (but I repeat myself), every time they started reporting the next mass shooting ("...details are sketchy but we just got a word of mass shooting at a home near MLK Drive in...") it would turn out to be (you already know where this is going) a black guy, or guys.

    In the past they simply would have ignored these Narrative-busting stories, but in their haste to bump the Muslim shooting off from prominence, they forgot to check all the boxes before they rushed in front of the cameras to talk about it.

    Usually within half an hour or so, they'd realize their "error", and then they'd sheepishly have to pretend that the Breaking News World Headline! of half an hour ago is actually just another case of nothing-to-see-here-now-move-along.

    Eventually they calmed down, found other ways to make the Muslim story not be about Muslims, and got back to their usual routine of suppressing black mass shooting stories. But for a while there was an amusing interlude where they were inadvertently reporting news semi-accurately.

    Black mass shooters are working under entirely different rules-of-engagement than white mass shooters. Blacks are shooting under conditions where they have to engage the one or two dudes they want to harm in a large social gathering because ambush opportunities are not available, shooting is done under the pressure that their targets might shoot back, and they have to use easily concealable weapons.

    Anyone who says that the casualty profile is the result of not knowing how an "iron" sight works or of using an underpowered cartridge of too small a caliber of non-expanding metal-jacketed ammunition
    with too short a barrel is racist for not taking the social constraints on Black shooters.

    By the way, Syrians are white as are Chechens and even Norwegians, but they have goofy ideas and weird cultures (yes, Norwegians, look at the mess they made in Minnesota) and I don't want to let any of them in.

    It's usually the children, Clyde. In burbs-gone-wrong, mid-level black government drones move out of the hood to the suburbs, having achieved middle class EEOC driven economic status. Unfortunately they bring their teens. In ten years' time Prince George's County in Maryland just outside DC was hideously
    transformed back in the 80s. Whites moved to Charles County, even further south, but because blacks always follow, succeeding suburbs were also ruined. It's the kids. Even Koreans' kids have gone nuts in the past, see the Virginia Tech shooter who shot 50, killed 35 or 40, IIRC. Media couldn't cover that one up. Asian and Arab boys, first generation, don't do so well socially even (or especially) when the parents are perfectly assimilated and successful.

    To be fair, I would threaten to call the cops if a Daily Mail reporter stood next to my house.

    Al Issa's (and BTW, that's what he called himself - Alissa was just the media and/or the cops getting in wrong in the initial fog of war) Facebook rants about Trump and Islamophobia were pretty standard Democrat rants and not particularly alarming because they were so ordinary. His concerns about his phone being hacked were a little bit paranoid but not entirely crazy. The FBI has admitted that Al Issa was on their radar so in retrospect it was a reasonable fear.

    The hard part of these cases is that while you can see the warning signs in retrospect, there are thousands of guys who exhibit the exact same symptoms.

    I asked her when I first read that exchange, when Derb wrote it in VDARE, and I just asked her again:

    Derb was being tricky, because he knew that ballistics problems, such as a bullet's trajectory, are solved using ODE's (ordinary differential equations). Cain's answer demonstrated an understanding of this.

    ODEs involve one independent variable, whereas PDEs (partial differential equations) involve multiple ones and are more difficult.

    A bullet follows a curve derived from Newton's second law of motion, and that means you can use an ODE to find the curve. The bullet traces a path as gravity pulls it down.

    It also behaves according to its ballistics coefficient, which describes how well it penetrates the air. This of course doesn't take into account things like windage (cross wind) which was jokingly mentioned by another commenter. When you are shooting a fat Arab in a grocery store, the distance is likely so short that the bullet traces a virtually straight line, and there is no wind either.

    Herman Cain, working for the Navy, might have been calculating the trajectories of big gun shells fired from ships. When you know the distance to your target and the performance of your projectiles, you change the angle of your barrels accordingly, such that the curve intersects with the Earth at the desired point.

    3) If they picked a random target (a venue with no political or personal significance to the attacker(s)) there is a solid chance they are Muslim.

    The week that George Floyd died in Minneapolis over 20 people were murdered during that weekend in Chicago during multiple mass shootings. So once in awhile Black mass shooters put up John Wick level impressive numbers with firearms. But since George Floyd was the center of the universe that weekend the bloodbath in Chicago only received coverage from The Fox News Channel and local Chicago news. CNN and MSNBC were asleep on the wheel because over 20 murder victims in 1 weekend in Chicago does not fit the false narrative that there is an epidemic of White Supremacists hunting Black males for sport!

    But since George Floyd was the center of the universe that weekend the bloodbath in Chicago only received coverage from The Fox News Channel and local Chicago news.

    I used to work at a cable firm where a 24/7 cable news feed played in the office background. In the aftermath of a Muslim mass shooting, the cable firm’s crack reporters were champing at the bit to be the ones to break the next mass shooting story, which they were sure was gonna be a rightwing white guy, because of course everybody knows that’s who mass shooters really are, and they were keen to get the Muslim shooting off the front pages of everyone’s mind. Unfortunately for these true-believer leftwing journalists (but I repeat myself), every time they started reporting the next mass shooting (“…details are sketchy but we just got a word of mass shooting at a home near MLK Drive in…“) it would turn out to be (you already know where this is going) a black guy, or guys.

    In the past they simply would have ignored these Narrative-busting stories, but in their haste to bump the Muslim shooting off from prominence, they forgot to check all the boxes before they rushed in front of the cameras to talk about it.

    [ ] check here if story reflect badly on dark people, we are not allow

    Usually within half an hour or so, they’d realize their “error”, and then they’d sheepishly have to pretend that the Breaking News World Headline! of half an hour ago is actually just another case of nothing-to-see-here-now-move-along.

    Eventually they calmed down, found other ways to make the Muslim story not be about Muslims, and got back to their usual routine of suppressing black mass shooting stories. But for a while there was an amusing interlude where they were inadvertently reporting news semi-accurately.

    3-14 has come and gone, but this could be the time and place to declare a Herman Cain Godfather Pizza Pie Day.
    From John Derbyshire's 02-25-2019 column, adapted from Radio Derb:

    As well as having been born the same year as me, Cain has, like me, a Bachelor's degree in math. He's smarter than me, though, and went on to get a master's in Computer Science. Somewhere along there he worked on math problems for the U.S. Navy.



    I knew about this when I met him, so we had some math chat.

    What kind of problems had he worked on? I asked him. "Ballistics," he said; "Missile trajectories and such."

    Me: "Lotta differential equations?"

    He: "Oh, yeah."

    Me, a bit sneakily: "ODEs or PDEs?"

    He: "Mostly Os."

    If you don't understand that exchange, just take it from me: for ballistics, Cain's answer was the right one.

    Derb was being tricky, because he knew that ballistics problems, such as a bullet’s trajectory, are solved using ODE’s (ordinary differential equations). Cain’s answer demonstrated an understanding of this.

    ODEs involve one independent variable, whereas PDEs (partial differential equations) involve multiple ones and are more difficult.

    A bullet follows a curve derived from Newton’s second law of motion, and that means you can use an ODE to find the curve. The bullet traces a path as gravity pulls it down.

    It also behaves according to its ballistics coefficient, which describes how well it penetrates the air. This of course doesn’t take into account things like windage (cross wind) which was jokingly mentioned by another commenter. When you are shooting a fat Arab in a grocery store, the distance is likely so short that the bullet traces a virtually straight line, and there is no wind either.

    Herman Cain, working for the Navy, might have been calculating the trajectories of big gun shells fired from ships. When you know the distance to your target and the performance of your projectiles, you change the angle of your barrels accordingly, such that the curve intersects with the Earth at the desired point.

    Here's the always-in-demand Canadian angle. (Snippets from bbc.com/news/newsbeat-40381047 2017)


    A Canadian special forces sniper has broken the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot. The soldier shot an IS militant dead from just over two miles away, in Iraq last month. The Canadian Armed Forces now holds three of the top five positions for longest confirmed kill shots.
     
    From another source: "Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far away, the bad guys didn't have a clue what was happening."

    The sniper had to take the curve of the earth into consideration because the target was so far away. The soldier would have also had to account for the drop of the bullet as he was firing from the top, or near the top, of a building.
     
    No indication of colour, but doubtless used ODEs for this last bit.

  37. My subjective opinion of black shooting skills comes from watching You Tube videos and First 48 TV shows. When shooting starts, black bystanders are more likely to run fast and leave the killing zone. Whereas in the Kyle Rittenhouse shooting and the Pennsylvania snowstorm shooting the victims in the first case tried to attack a guy carrying an AR and in the second stood still like sheep when the enraged neighbor walked across the alley carrying a pistol he used to shoot the couple. They don’t believe it’s real, apparently.

  38. Has any black shooter ever offered the defence that people laughed at his name?

  39. I was wondering about this yesterday — the dead-to-wounded ratio — and simply could not find a story that gave the number of wounded along with the 10 dead. Five? 10? 20? If he was deadly accurate that’s interesting considering he supposedly only bought the gun six days ago and does not look like the type who hangs out at the range to sight the thing in.

    Black mass shooters are working under entirely different rules-of-engagement than white mass shooters. Blacks are shooting under conditions where they have to engage the one or two dudes they want to harm in a large social gathering because ambush opportunities are not available, shooting is done under the pressure that their targets might shoot back, and they have to use easily concealable weapons.

    Anyone who says that the casualty profile is the result of not knowing how an “iron” sight works or of using an underpowered cartridge of too small a caliber of non-expanding metal-jacketed ammunition
    with too short a barrel is racist for not taking the social constraints on Black shooters.

    That's why I listed all three rules.

    The Oklahoma City bombers fit two of the three rules, as well. It was two perpetrators who used a bomb, but their target had political significance - it was a federal building.

    I came up with those rules when they were still investigating the Boston Marathon bombing. People were speculating that it was right wing extremists who were protesting tax day (it happened on April 15). They knew at the time that it was two white guys, but didn't yet know they were Muslim immigrants from Chechnya.

    But the Boston Marathon bombers picked a random target. They were happy to kill random Americans. Which suggested to me there was no way in hell they were "right wing extremists."

    Speaking of Oklahoma City and "right wing extremists," perhaps now is a god time to recognize Bill Clinton, the man who first weaponized political violence to target his political opponents. Forget grieving for the dead - we can thank Bill Clinton for the way that almost every act of violence today almost instantaneously gets politicized. Thanks Bill.

We don't lump Filipinos in with Swedes on the grounds that they are both 'Christian,' and having been in Morocco, Turkey, and Pakistan, for example, I really don't see much of a common thread there. (Muslim) Turks are a lot more like (Christian) Greeks than they are like (Muslim) Moroccans.

    He said they used ballistics tables that had been calculated by mathematicians back in the US. The gunners could refer to those charts and adjust the angles of the big barrels accordingly. They were bombarding North Korean troops to hold them back, so South Koreans and Americans could make a retreat.

    According to City Data murder statistics there are many suburban cities in The U.S that can go anywhere from 5 to 10 years or close to it without a single murder, basically either a half a decade or a full decade without any gun violence. And these are sizable population centers not middle of nowhere rural areas with only a population of 1,000 people for example living there!

    Allen, Texas

    So obviously they exist, but are precious few. Surprisingly, I expected them to be in nice Minnesota, Wisconsin, New England, Northwest, Hawaii etc., but they are in Texas, California, NY/NJ/IL.

    My impression is that in Whitopias (and Fancy Asian) areas, more or most of the murders fall under the category of domestic violence. I have family in what was once a nearly all White town (but now there’re a lot Mexicans, of course). They would historically go many years without a murder until some Karen drove her hillbilly husband mad and he just lost it and grabbed his hunting rifle.

    There are always bar fights, but young White men seem to be able to stop short of killing each other. I recall a case close to where I grew up where two White brothers got into a bar fight with some Mexicans and the Mexicans ended up stabbing one of the brothers to death. Pulling a knife in a rowdy but otherwise harmless bar fight strikes me as something that Mexicans are more likely to do.

    It would be interesting to see crime figures that classify not only by race but also domestic violence; fights with knives; fights leading to use of firearms; known to victim; premeditated etc. Perhaps this is already out there? I’d be interested in the Black-White ratio of homicides involving domestic violence vs strangers vs acquaintances.

    That’s why I listed all three rules.

    The Oklahoma City bombers fit two of the three rules, as well. It was two perpetrators who used a bomb, but their target had political significance – it was a federal building.

    I came up with those rules when they were still investigating the Boston Marathon bombing. People were speculating that it was right wing extremists who were protesting tax day (it happened on April 15). They knew at the time that it was two white guys, but didn’t yet know they were Muslim immigrants from Chechnya.

    But the Boston Marathon bombers picked a random target. They were happy to kill random Americans. Which suggested to me there was no way in hell they were “right wing extremists.”

    Speaking of Oklahoma City and “right wing extremists,” perhaps now is a god time to recognize Bill Clinton, the man who first weaponized political violence to target his political opponents. Forget grieving for the dead – we can thank Bill Clinton for the way that almost every act of violence today almost instantaneously gets politicized. Thanks Bill.

    Likely because the white or Asian or Muslim shooter selects very soft targets (school, supermarket).

    The black mass shooter settling a street beef understands that his target is probably strapped too – the best strategy is to employ the element of surprise (it’s still not that surprising) and do all of your damage in a short amount of time before getting away and not getting shot yourself.

    Additional laws include:
    1) If they use a bomb, then they are probably Muslim.
    2) If two or more people perpetrated the attack, they are probably Muslim.
    3) If they picked a random target (a venue with no political or personal significance to the attacker(s)) there is a solid chance they are Muslim.

    If all three criteria are satisfied the odds that they are Muslim approaches 100%. If there’s an act of violence in the news and it meets all three criteria, but they don’t know (or won’t say) who did it, rest assured - it was Muslims.

    Reasoning:

    1) Building a working bomb requires some degree of training. Easy for Muslims to find, but not most other people.

    2) Coordinating with other people requires enough trust to risk bringing in other people and also some solid training to really be successful. That means a culture of hatred and contempt, which is common among Muslims but not most other groups (except maybe the Dem Party and the Chamber of Commerce).

    3) Muslims are happy to kill infidels - any infidels. Most other perps want to hurt specific people (fellow students or coworkers) or attack a target with some political significance (e.g., the Oklahoma City Federal Building).

    I asked her when I first read that exchange, when Derb wrote it in VDARE, and I just asked her again:

    Derb was being tricky, because he knew that ballistics problems, such as a bullet's trajectory, are solved using ODE's (ordinary differential equations). Cain's answer demonstrated an understanding of this.

    ODEs involve one independent variable, whereas PDEs (partial differential equations) involve multiple ones and are more difficult.

    A bullet follows a curve derived from Newton's second law of motion, and that means you can use an ODE to find the curve. The bullet traces a path as gravity pulls it down.

    It also behaves according to its ballistics coefficient, which describes how well it penetrates the air. This of course doesn't take into account things like windage (cross wind) which was jokingly mentioned by another commenter. When you are shooting a fat Arab in a grocery store, the distance is likely so short that the bullet traces a virtually straight line, and there is no wind either.

    Herman Cain, working for the Navy, might have been calculating the trajectories of big gun shells fired from ships. When you know the distance to your target and the performance of your projectiles, you change the angle of your barrels accordingly, such that the curve intersects with the Earth at the desired point.

    Here’s the always-in-demand Canadian angle. (Snippets from bbc.com/news/newsbeat-40381047 2017)

    A Canadian special forces sniper has broken the world record for the longest confirmed kill shot. The soldier shot an IS militant dead from just over two miles away, in Iraq last month. The Canadian Armed Forces now holds three of the top five positions for longest confirmed kill shots.

    From another source: “Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far away, the bad guys didn’t have a clue what was happening.”

    The sniper had to take the curve of the earth into consideration because the target was so far away. The soldier would have also had to account for the drop of the bullet as he was firing from the top, or near the top, of a building.

    No indication of colour, but doubtless used ODEs for this last bit.

    I heard that gun-aiming computers on Navy ships need to account for the Coriolis Effect of the Earth's rotation. That is the nausea-making effect of moving along a spinning playground merry-go-round, especially a small one.

    Interesting… One wonders if the stabilizing spin placed on the massive shells by the rifled barrels interacts with the Earth’s rotation to multiply the Coriolis Effect… I don’t know, but:

    Since I like to tell stories, here’s one: My father told me about shelling from off the Korean coast when he was in the Navy. He was the engineer on a destroyer, and since that was a small ship, it meant he was third in command, even though he was a lieutenant.

    He said they used ballistics tables that had been calculated by mathematicians back in the US. The gunners could refer to those charts and adjust the angles of the big barrels accordingly. They were bombarding North Korean troops to hold them back, so South Koreans and Americans could make a retreat.

    The projectile was the first human-made object to reach the stratosphere. The historian Adam Hochschild put it this way: “It took about three minutes for each giant shell to cover the distance to the city, climbing to an altitude of 25 miles at the top of its trajectory. This was by far the highest point ever reached by a man-made object, so high that gunners, in calculating where the shells would land, had to take into account the rotation of the Earth. For the first time in warfare, deadly projectiles rained down on civilians from the stratosphere.”

    It's usually the children, Clyde. In burbs-gone-wrong, mid-level black government drones move out of the hood to the suburbs, having achieved middle class EEOC driven economic status.

    transformed back in the 80s. Whites moved to Charles County, even further south, but because blacks always follow, succeeding suburbs were also ruined. It's the kids. Even Koreans' kids have gone nuts in the past, see the Virginia Tech shooter who shot 50, killed 35 or 40, IIRC. Media couldn't cover that one up. Asian and Arab boys, first generation, don't do so well socially even (or especially) when the parents are perfectly assimilated and successful.

    In the 1960s-1970s Prince George County was so white…. It was often in the news of being a white racist county. It had this reputation spread by the NY Times etc. This is so long ago I forget the particular reasons. Probably due to keeping out black home owners. Or segregated schools.

    PG County police were responsive to black crime as it grew but of course even in the mid eighties was branded racist and brutal. When Howard Stern was at local area DC101 FM doing his shock jock routine he used to do radio skits mocking PG County police. Beaver Breaks they called the skit. The Cleaver family would go go a drive in PG County and be pulled over by PG County police and the brutality would start from there, including June Cleaver being raped while Ward and Wally were forced to watch, among other scenarios. Hilarious! Beaver Breaks, starring Hugh Blowmont, Barbara Billingsbush, Tony Cow as Wally, and Jerry Mattress, as The Beaver.

  78. Does this qualify for some type of record: 76 shots, 1 wounded, “expected to recover”:

    “Investigators say that on March 4 four suspects waited to ambush the victim in a stolen car parked on the 2900 block of Snyder Avenue [Philadelphia]. Just before 10:30 a.m., footage shows the men get out of a red sedan armed with rifles and handguns, according to police.”

    “Authorities said the men fired at least 76 shots at the 28-year-old victim and left the area. Officers drove the unnamed victim to Penn Presbyterian Hospital with “multiple gunshot injuries.” He is expected to recover.”
