    What makes this an ‘active shooter’ versus simply ‘crime’? If a crime involving a gun and a yet to be detained suspect qualifies as an ‘active shooter’ worthy of being plastered across the news nets… then every outlet should have a news van driving all over Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, etc… all day… and all night… covering the endless, newly labeled, ‘active shooter’ incidents. I think we’re being played here. There is a reason the language is being changed to something closer to ‘mass shooting’. could just be ratings… but I doubt it.

    If this guy had stabbed these two people and run off, would we have an ‘active stabber’ situation?

      News ratings, baby! Traffic! Worldwide Global Panic for Profit!

        Agreed… but we allow language to be manipulated until pushing back takes tremendous effort. Semi-automatic weapons being called “Automatic”… Children now “Face” hunger. Why? Because we quite the opposite of a Starvation problem in this country, but the institutions created to fight sarvation still exist and people working for them don’t want to find a new cause… so the terminology changes. What does “Facing Hunger” even mean? Apparently 1 in 5 Children (up to age 26?) suffer from it. Do Fat kids “Face Hunger”? I think I “Face Hunger” from avoiding all of the ‘Active Shooter’ events I’m surrounded by on a daily basis.

        I get it… I just don’t want to get it. I’ll stop complaining now. We all have something else to do.
