Would this incident be considered a "mass shooting" or just a "regular shooting"?

    Just after 2am. I bet they were out there discussing the merits of going vegan. But, maybe not.

  2. It all depends on the shooter .
    Melanin deficient - mass shooting and indicative of systemic racism .
    Melanin enhanced - nothing to see here , move on .
