    Happy Year of the Water Rabbit!!!

    10 people killed, 10 injured in mass shooting at Monterey Park dance studio

    Ten people were killed and at least 10 others were injured when a gunman opened fire at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park on Saturday night, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

    The mass shooting, one of California’s worst in recent memory, happened in the 100 block of West Garvey Avenue at around 10:22 p.m., sheriff’s Capt. Andrew Meyer told reporters Sunday morning. The shooting occurred on Lunar New Year’s Eve about seven miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

    There was scant information on the gunman: male and still at large. There is no known motive, nor a description of the shooter. A law enforcement source briefed on the matter said the gunman used a high powered assault rifle at close range.

  5. Some confusing messages in this statement:

    https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2023/01/suspect-is-still-at-large-in-mass-shooting-at-la-area-ballroom/

    “ Los Angeles County Sheriff Robert Luna said, “The description we have now is of a male Asian. Does that matter? I don’t know.” He said authorities would provide a more detailed description in the coming hours, but declined to characterize the event as a hate crime.

    “We don’t know if this is specifically a hate crime as defined by law,” Luna said, “but who walks into a dance hall and guns down 20 people?”

    Luna said that the shooting was potentially related to another incident that took place approximately 20 minutes after the initial shooting, this time at a dance hall in Alhambra, California, where patrons disarmed the gunman before he could attack. Luna said that police had retrieved a weapon and that it was not an assault rifle. “We need to get this person off the street as soon as possible,” he said.“

    (…)

    “ The city’s planned festivities for Sunday have been canceled.

    Authorities assured the public that it was safe to continue celebrating the Lunar New Year and that they will release more details in the coming hours.”

    So, it sounds like the “authorities” are sending a mixed message here…I personally don’t think it’s safe…do you?

      The “hate crime” distinction never made sense to me. Any murder is a hate crime unless in self-defense.

    Authorities in Louisiana say 12 people were injured in a shooting at a nightclub in Baton Rouge early Sunday.

    One of the victims is in critical condition, while the rest are listed as stable, police said. No arrests have been made.

    While no arrests have been made and the motive for the shootings is unknown, McKneely said the police department has leads. “People are talking, and we know that we can get some information to help us with our investigation,” McKneely said.

    No additional information about the shooting, victims or investigation was provided at this time.

      It’s not race; it’s sex. Men. Men are doing 98% of the killings. As for trans-identified people, they are among the safest demographics unless you extrapolate the rate for Brazilian prostitutes to the demographic as a whole. For example in the U.K. for the past 3 yrs (probably 4 yrs now) zero, absolutely none, zilch, no trans-id’d people have been killed. Meanwhile, 2-3 women (the majority of whom are white) are killed each week. As for “I”, that’s an insulting and outmoded term for DSDs. People w/DSDs, who are either male or female (not both nor neither nor spectrum-y) would very much like to be left off of the TQ+WTF crowd.
