This is no longer coincidental. Someone is causing this.

Maybe 'under the radar'.

This, from "The Gothamist":

it appears from police scanners that the shooting was related to a robbery and that the perp has been shot (it is unclear if they were apprehended or are DOA). According to the FDNY there are "several" people being taken to nearby hospitals while they mitigate the scene.

Because the first three shootings didn’t have the desired effect.

If this one doesn’t, you will see another attack, and another.

The problem for Big Media and the Hussein Heads is that the shooters are leftist freaks and Big Media has to hush up asap afterwards.

“Shooter was shooting in all directions. Two crime scenes. ????”

Maybe Hussein’s gestapo are getting smarter and the shooter’s handler is taking the shooter down sooner.

Big Media only reports what Hussein’s SS tell them to.

A witness tells FOX 5 News the gunman opened fire "indiscriminately." The witness told Good Day NY another woman standing next to her was shot in the leg.

White males rob too, so, if this is a robbery, I’m not as ‘alerted’ to a ‘planned crisis’.

You might want to just hold that comment in reserve before you rescind it.

2 people dead, 1 critical so far.
Nypd is now saying it is not known whether it was robbery or act of terrorism.

Hmm

“This was not related to terrorism.” “It is not yet known whether this is terror-related”. Perhaps a slight paraphrase, but both statements within a few minutes of each other (and in that order) just now.

FoxNews reports that City Officials report NO SIGN OF TERRORISM.

[Ask the victims and those on the streets when the shooting was going on.]

Workplace violence is now the reason, apparently.

“God told me to” is the name of a relatively obscure Larry Cohen movie about a rash of people being inspired to random mass murder (I won’t spoiler it, but it’s not God that’s doing the inspiring).

There was also Karloff’s last US movie, an early Bogdonavich film “Targets” about a mass-murdering sniper.

These were obviously dark movies - I can’t help but wonder if the dystopians were right about society (q.v., Clockwork Orange, Fahrenheit 451, 1984). Dark times, indeed.

May the Lord have mercy on us.
