    So... wait.. Muslims who go and kill people in Syrian churches... are completely sane... but white kills 9 black people in church and he's insane? How? What's your rationale for either? Seems to me like what's good for the goose is not goose for the gander. The burden of proof is on you to show something other than "because I say so". However, I'm not holding my breath seeing our little exchange on 'political strategists'. He picked a target, planned out his action and committed his act. There's no indication that he was insane, at least not at the moment. So what makes him insane other than you're outraged at his actions?

    Lmao, not really. He could have added people for the sole reason of gathering some sort of evidence to support his views. FB isn't a one way street, you know. He was wearing an apartheid South Africa flag and a Rhodesia flag. There is no question about his views on race anymore so there is no need to say it's a "supposed racist".

    I don't have a Facebook presence, so I'll leave you to your expertise. I do understand that the needy collect thousands of "friends," but in my ignorant and limited experience (generally, family and friends and their friends and a few causes), you can get a sense of who a person is on FB or of the persona he's playing. This mass murderer lists no family, no music, no anything. As an expert, can you draw a conclusion from this? Do you think this mentally ill young man went around collecting "friends"? If so, what does this say about him?

    I would guess that the idiot carried his cell phone with him and they were tracking him long before they released his name to the press.

    I'm no expert on social media (academically speaking) but I do know that FB is a terrible reflection of who people are. I have 1000 people on my current FB list, and I rarely talk to most of them. The overwhelming majority are people who I've met through work. The people who I do talk to are either family members or close family friends. If somebody were to draw a conclusion from my FB account, they'd say I'm a socialite who is everything from an anti-vaxer (laughable really) to a gun nut (even more so). Yet, here I am being neither of those things and being extremely low key about my personal relationships.

    None of this makes him mentally ill. Irrational? Maybe. Murderous? Definitely. Mentally ill? Nope.

    No I'll leave the subjective definitions of whats " Liberal " and what's " Conservative " to you.
