2. I am going to hold off a while before making any judgements.

Any time something big happens in the world, I make it a point to wait at least 24-48 hours before believing much of anything about an incident. The first reports are ALWAYS wrong. Right now, we are hearing that the shooter were "white supremacists". Even if the shooters were white, how is it known that they were supremacists? So far as I have heard, there have been no positive identifications or arrests. Let's be patient and let things develop on their own. If we jump to conclusions, we might wind up embarrassed. For instance, what if it was just a nutcase wanting attention, or someone with a personal beef? Having said all that, whoever did this (for whatever reason) is in bad need of prison time.
