El Paso and the Gamification of Terrorism

https://www.bellingcat.com/news/americas/2019/08/04/the-el-paso-shooting-and-the-gamification-of-terror/

...In the wake of the Christchurch shooting I published my first Bellingcat article about 8chan. I was interviewed by numerous media agencies about the website, and I warned all of them that additional attacks would follow – every month or two – until something was done. This prediction has proven accurate. Until law enforcement, and the media, treat these shooters as part of a terrorist movement no less organized, or deadly, than ISIS or Al Qaeda, the violence will continue. There will be more killers, more gleeful celebration of body counts on 8chan, and more bloody attempts to beat the last killer’s “high score”.

El Paso Shooter lived about 1mile from my home

Just a bit freaked out. My family is multi-racial and we have been many times to the closest Walmart to his home. We shop there alot for certain items.

He also attended my daughters' college at the same time. They did not know him.

Not been this creeped out since I found at we were at the mall that was attacked by terrorists in Nairobi on a day they did a walkthrough (Christmas Eve) before the actual attack.
