    Seven shot, at least one dead in Tuesday night rampage

    Being a Texas native, I thought I would post this news story...


    WICHITA FALLS At 9:45 p.m., Wichita Falls police were investigating a shooting incident that may have left as many as seven people dead or wounded.

    First incident was reported at Hastings Store at Kemp and Southwest Parkway, where a man reportedly fired a shotgun several times and struck five people. Their injuries not thought to be life threatening.

    While officers there, police got a call at Toby's nightclub on Plaza Parkway a few blocks away about a suspect matching the description at the previous scene. One man was struck by gunfire at the club and was killed, according to police.

    Officers saw the suspect leave Toby's and pursued the vehicle into 2000 block of Victory. Police were setting up perimeter when they heard a shot. They went into the house and found the suspect with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital.

    Names of the suspect and victims were not immediately released.

    Why not just let the scum die?

    Texas, eh? Why didn't they just rush him to a hospital in Ohio?

    How does a guy manage to wound several people, kill one, and then miss himself at close range? Why don't they just shoot themselves first, and leave everyone else alone?

    Because some liberal scummer would flip the script and make it look like you have no compassion and refused to render aid.

    No compassion for a man who wounded and/or killed several people. Right. That's a problem?

    compassion

    I would have called for aid because that is how I was raised. I would have no compassion whatsoever for the BG. If he died I could care less. Compassion requires that I care about what happens to him. I don't. I only make the call because to me it is the moral thing to do. That is for me and not him.
