Another shooting spree in Kalamazoo, Michigan. You know, because guns keep us so safe.

Courtesy of NBC News: 

The shooting spree began at around 6 p.m., when a woman at a Kalamazoo County apartment complex was shot several times, Kalamazoo Country Prosecutor Jeff Getting said. She was in serious condition but expected to survive, he said. 

Police were then called to a car dealership about 10 p.m. where two men, one of them an 18-year-old, were fatally shot, Getting said. 

About 10 minutes later, a third shooting took place in the parking lot of a nearby Cracker Barrel restaurant where four women were fatally shot, and the 14-year-old girl was seriously injured, Getting said. 

In that shooting, the suspect got out of his car and started a brief conversation with people in two other cars, Matyas said. After a few seconds of talking, the gunman "unloaded his weapon into both cars," Matyas said. 

Dalton was taken into custody at around 12:40 a.m. after being stopped, police said. Getting said a semi-automatic handgun was seized in the arrest.

Investigators are saying that the shooting spree was premeditated, but that the victims were random.

The guy just wanted to go kill some people with a gun, and fortunately he lives in the country that makes that easy for him.


Of course this will not get much attention, because apparently this guy is not a Muslim with ties to ISIS.

    Was there no warning about this one?

    You can't say that Track Palin has not tried to warn people.

    Track Palin’s girlfriend feared he would shoot himself with an assault rifle after he hit her during a drunken argument at Sarah Palin’s house.

    Track’s arrest comes at an inopportune time. On Tuesday, January 19, his mother Sarah announced she’s endorsing Donald Trump for presidency.
    That did not prevent Track from his mission of warning the public of his dubious condition.

      What do you mean? Pretty sure no one ever saw that coming of those who KNOW him.

      "Stay strong, Track," right Alicia?

    Unrelated to this post but saw a meme that is perfect for everyone.

    Don't judge someone just because they sin differently than you.

    1. Anonymous1:13 PM

      You're damned right it's unrelated to this post. The fact that you thought it appropriate to stick it here, in this post of all places, means there's something wrong with you.

      Are you the same one who told girl-friend beater, Track Palin to "stay strong?"

      Hi, Bristle! Most folks would think that a random shooting spree qualifies as sinful.

      You're off the hook here though, you'd have to be a LOT less responsible than you are to be in the running on this one.

      Guess what, jackass? None of my "sins" come close to punching my girlfriend in the face and kicking her when she's down. So, stick your "no judging" where the sun never shines.

      People have good and bad judgments. We are all free to have judgment, good or bad.

      In community it is the judge that gets to judge in a court. A judge needs honesty, truth and good investigations to judge well.

      If a judge has bad witnesses and resources and a fraudulent or corrupt investigation a judge can not make a fair judgment.

      Amazing that With old Tortoise has now posted an objection TWICE to comments regarding a mass shooting. Jerk!

      Being an Atheist nothing that I do counts as a sin as that is a religious construct based on your chose supernatural mythology

      However, I seem to have much better moral and ethical judgement than many of those who identify as strict religious adherents.

      Funny how that works. Somehow lack of belief in the supernatural seems to make us BETTER PEOPLE.

      Bristle has a different sin. She won't be judging any of her baby daddy's that aren't seeing their babies or sending her money for support.

      What is this "Sin" people speak of? Put your hand down, Brissy, that was a rhetorical question.

      That's one of the dumbest "memes" I've ever seen.

    So this guy kills six people yet he is taken into custody alive? Just like the shooter from Charleston, SC? Good thing he was white and had a real gun otherwise he would be dead. Saw a story this week about two guys in the Cincinatti area who pulled air guns on cops in two different situations. One was shot dead, the other taken into custody. Any guesses on each ones race?

      The Kalamazoo law enforcement are held to standards to ensure a suspect's civil rights. This is after a lawsuit. Everyone living there knows this as it and the training were heavily covered by the media. You can search very easily. The shooter knew full well he would have his rights respected.

  4. Holt describes the shooter as "progressive."Hilarious. See why
    I describe him as a bona fide terrorist.
    Repub sheeple won't ever describe him as a terrorist until Trump says so.
    Maybe we can start a rumor that the shooter knew a Muslim Uber driver somewhere in Kalamazoo.

    This Kalamazoo event should make Jeb Bush think about that tweet of his showing the gun as the symbol of America. The shooter in Kalamazoo must have taken Jeb's tweet to heart. I am so glad that he was caught before killing any more people. By the way, the two killed at the car dealership were a father and son looking for a new car.

      But this one is destined to go down as a classic in the annals of ridiculous Hoftian stupidity.

      It is a hilarious.

      Can Hoft actually be that stupid?

      This is really really stupid, even by his low standards. It's almost like it's an act.

      Like he forgot the /s

      According to the local news in metro Detroit, he was also an Uber driver.

      He had a passenger in his car/truck right before the shooting spree, the passenger said he received a phone call during the ride, then began to drive like a crazy person. the passenger was able to get out of the car ok.

      Uber did a background check on him and didn't find anything, they are now working with the police.

      His neighbors said he was a great guy, yeah right.

      I love the way they word that.

      Poor pitiful Dakota is allowed by his boss lady, the leader of his world family will allow the little boy a visit.

      He must be terrified of Bristol the pistol now that he is outgunned.

    3. Anonymous3:02 PM

      I like the way it looks like Dakota has to grovel and he is stuck with what they do to him. I am not even convinced he is the bio-dad seeing how all this is not actually legit in the way verified documents could be. It is mostly merely mumble jumble from various rags.

      It is scripted to appear as Dakota Meyer has been castrated or put in shrink wrap by Bristol and her mother, Sarah Palin. They look like evil skanks to sell this kind of crap but tough and mean wimmen winner is not some sappy weak marine loser.

    4. Anonymous3:39 PM


      Right? Big tough Marine should just head up here and take that damn baby and put it on a plane and take it home with him and fuck those Palins!

      Yeah, "Never Outgunned" show up with some weapons grab it take it with you and fuck all of you Palins!

      I guess in your fictional world this can happen? He hasn't even conceded that he is the dad yet. I will wait until he gets his court ordered paternity, and if he goes with the one they got, then he still can work it out that he gets the kid for at least half of its life, shared custody, or not, and maybe he pays a little, maybe he pays a lot, maybe he gets to see it, maybe not, until his lawyer makes a statement I have no opinion on his legal stance.

      Did you read the fantasy starpulse piece?

      The war is with the script writers. Dakota hasn't hired one as far as I know.

      He doesn't have to hire a script writer or make any deals with the gossip rags. It is only in that genre where the Palins are winning. And that is not a win, just a Charlie expression.

    6. Anonymous4:10 AM

      Starpulse, who even heard of this rag?

      I guess no one else is picking up her story, so she is scrapping the bottle of the barrel.

  8. Anonymous2:23 PM

    Oh, no! You know that since the Wasilla Police and the DA and the Judge and the courts have not raided the Palin home and taken away the domestic terrorist, Track Palin, and forever incarcerated him without bail or parole or even a trial, this will be the next thing that happens to the Palin family and Jordan and Britta and Kyla and maybe even the grandparents because it's exactly the same!!111!!

      Cool casual at home image. I love the way the gun is pointed. Tells me this family values family is all about promoting safety. I can't wait to show my 8 year old so he will feel better when I leave my loaded guns around the house. Images do matter, ask Sarah.

    At least there is some positive news about this horrendous shooting .... the 14 year old girl was pronounced dead and then came back to life..... I suppose the fundies will say it was jeebus:

    This bullshit's got to stop. Let them keep their guns and put an astronomical excise tax on ammunition.

    1. Anonymous4:08 AM

      Good idea! Why not tax the hell out of the guns also, but instead of calling it a tax, they could give it some fancy name like "patriot fee" or " patriot fee to keep those mooslism terrorists from killing my family" or "republican fear fee".

      That way the goobers won't realize it is really a tax.

  12. You gotta wonder if these angry random killers and the wildlife standoff people were not so gawd damned plug-ugly their lives would have been less unhappy. If they had been able to attract girls or boys. How many rejections can a Neanderthal face take before...well, wanting to kill somebody, everybody?
