Annapolis Newspaper Shooting Motive: What We Know So Far

Published

on

The nation has been shaken once again by news of another mass shooting, this time at an Annapolis newspaper building.

Armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades, the gunman stormed the newsroom of the Capital Gazette newspaper on Thursday afternoon, killing five.

It didn’t take long for police to identify the gunman, a 39-year-old man who had sued the paper in 2012 for defamation and reportedly had a “vendetta” against the outlet, having made several threats in the past.

Note: I have chosen not to use the shooter’s name or face, as research has shown excessive media focus on the identity of mass shooters can inspire copycats.

The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra breaks down what we know so far:

NBC News’ Tom Winter reported on Twitter that the shooter had a history with the newspaper, having sued them in 2012 for defamation.

The Capital Gazette reported in 2015 that the suspect’s lawsuit against the newspaper had been thrown out by a judge because “the article was based on public records and [the suspect] presented no evidence it was inaccurate.”

The Capital Gazette reported at the time:

[The suspect], who represented himself, appealed the decision to the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, which upheld Lamasney’s ruling in an opinion filed Thursday.

“A lawyer would almost certainly have told him not to proceed with this case,” the court wrote. “It reveals a fundamental failure to understand what defamation law is and, more particularly, what defamation law is not.”

While the suspect’s mental health has not been addressed, one can imagine, as is common with those representing themselves in court, he is unstable.

He reportedly damaged his fingers so police could not identify him; they resorted to facial recognition instead.

WATCH: Biden Refers to Horn-Honking Pro-Trump ‘Folks’ As ‘Ugly’ At Minnesota Rally

Ain’t he something!?

Joe Biden is still campaigning, apparently. Still speaking gibberish. Still hating on America. If rally crowd size is any indication, Biden is going to lose big on November 3. Until then, here’s the former vice president referring to pro-Trump protesters as “ugly.” From Fox News: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden jabbed at a group of Trump supporters who honked their horns at a campaign stop in Minnesota, while he attempted to detail his plans to combat the coronavirus pandemic on Friday night. Biden spoke over the noise throughout his speech at the drive-in rally in St. Paul. The former vice president ripped the Trump administration’s handling for the pandemic and appeared to grow irritated when the horn-honking interrupted his explanation for supporting a nationwide mask mandate. “Dr. Fauci called for a mask mandate last week,” Biden said. “This isn’t a political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping the horns. This is a patriotic duty, for God’s sake.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1322305326188777473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322305326188777473%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-biden-refers-to-horn-honking-trump-supporters-as-ugly-folks-while-promoting-bringing-the-country-together WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1313200566550564864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313200566550564864%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-joe-biden-telling-voters-to-think-about-trump-being-given-the-death-blow-while-still-in-hospital%2F REACTIONS:

Kamala Harris: First Thing Joe & I Do Will Be to ‘Work to Get Rid of That Tax Cut’

Is this what the people want, Harris?

Vice President Kamala Harris. Has a pretty awful ring to it, no? If things don’t go America’s way on November 3, it could most certainly become a reality. On the to do list in a Biden administration, you know, other than using the Constitution as a Swiffer pad? How about raising taxes? Sound good to you? From Breitbart: The cuts practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400; and bumped up the child tax credit from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018. At a rally on October 30, Harris blabbered, “I promise you this — as a first order of business, Joe Biden and I are about to work to get rid of that tax cut.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1322313887107239936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322313887107239936%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2020%2F10%2F30%2Fkamala-harris-joe-biden-and-i-are-about-to-work-to-get-rid-of-that-tax-cut%2F Harris hates women, apparently. Her running mate has been accused of sexual harassment, yet she had no problem being on the same ticket. In fact, Kamala said she was “proud” of Jacob Blake despite his all-around violent history (especially with women), huh? What about Blake’s refusal to listen to law enforcement as they gave him orders, Kamala? Weren’t you the top cop of California, at one point? From Breitbart: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. […] At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct,” according to the Associated Press. A knife was found in his car, Wisconsin authorities later revealed. https://twitter.com/AttorneyCrump/status/1303035889715752961?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1303035889715752961%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2F2020-election%2F2020%2F09%2F07%2Fkamala-harris-told-jacob-blake-she-was-proud-of-him-sexual-assault%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqNefarA828#action=share
