    Where's the KKK convention for this story? I guess their racist views don't apply to this one.

    Read on another site, they are looking for an asian man which is interesting in that you do not hear often asians committing mass murder of this sort. I guess at the end of the day, ones race is immaterial if you are intent on committing murder.

    I trust those who got shot and are alive recovers. Such a crazy world we live in. You cannot go to school or attend a funeral (Miami) without some idiot trying to kill people that they probably do not know.
