Crazy. Stolen Mail trucks? Two shooters? This is so crazy I'd have expected it to happen in Florida (You know; the "Florida Man" meme.)

More info and some photos at Daily Mail.

Or maybe it is another Deep State / MK Ultra type plot.

CBS7 reporter saying they are having to evac the Odessa mall and TV studio.

Police are in the mall, searching, clearing everyone out.

I doubt anyone will notice it. No one of any note would ever bring that up in public, it would ruin their career/public standing.

“Unfortunately, these shootings will be orchestrated until the election, with increasing frequency.”

This week Zogby had Trump tied, or even slightly ahead of all the Democrats. Has to scare the hell out of the Left.

To win, they have to separate Trump from his base. Immigration is not working, Trump is still sticking with us, and hasn’t talked DACA at all.

...so now it’s time to ‘discuss’ the issue of gun control, as they may get to Trump’s heart strings and get him to blow it all for 2020 by listening to the toddlers in the White House. And, needless to say, the way the way the Democrats ‘discuss’ gun control is to protect the conditions needed for mass shootings (drugged up kids, focus on NRA instead of shooters, etc.), and then say that gun control is the ONLY answer.

Shooters have been stopped. One killed and one in custody. Just saw this.

The usual reports of multiple shooters, followed by a report of only one shooter when they are captured or killed:

Midland Police Facebook

But even after those reports the live report from the mall has people being evacuated from the mall.

Looks like two false flags, designed to split the number of people to react.

Prior to this I would not have agreed. But you are right.

The responses I’ve gotten on this thread and others are lukewarm and non commital.....

It’s chaos at first. The authorities are trying to find out where these people who are driving at high speeds are, and the people are scared to death and not sure where to go to be safe.

Of course, the deranged lefties and their cohorts in media continue their day in and day out hatred and violence. “Hope there is a direct hit on Mar-a-Lago”, as an example. It doesn’t make any difference if the shooter is left or right. If they are left the mentally ill person thinks it is their duty to kill those who the think are the enemy, if the shooter is right, the mentally ill think it is their duty to kill the enemy. It’s a win-win for the Democrats, either way thy keep their agenda.

It seems you are bent. Maybe you need to straighten out and stop being such an emotional liberal wanting to cry over everything and demand everyone else joins you.
