Highland Park (Chicago) Shooter is a white male 18-20 ...How long before conservatives start defending gun violence by saying he's mentally unstable?

The top four deadliest cities -- St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans and Detroit -- have Democratic mayors, sheriffs, prosecutors and city council leaders. The fifth, Cleveland, has Democrats across the board with the exception of an unaffiliated sheriff who was appointed to his position.

... and Ted Bundy was a democrat.

But not ADHD.
No, but many are misdiagnosed with ADHD. This is to subdue them to keep them quiet during school. There could be many other deeply rooted problems that were skirted to prescribe Ritalin. For instance: a large % of the population was diagnosed with ADHD that simply had restless leg syndrome or OCD, etc. In most cases of manic depression, the patient will also have anxiety, both usually go hand in hand.

One more item. When Ritalin has been prescribed the long-term side effects can be catastrophic. Many times the patients have become manic after they come off the subdued effects of Ritalin. This can create violent mood swings and hallucinations.

2018 report:
And someone explain this statement to me:

"To be sure, Chicago has a high number of murders: the city often records the highest absolute total killings each year. But as The Trace has noted, the data tells us that Chicago’s murder rate is nowhere near the nation’s worst. On a per-capita basis — murders per 100,000 residents — the city regularly experiences fewer killings than places whose murder rates get far less national attention, like Kansas City, Missouri, or Cleveland."

I'm not blaming dem mayors. I'm blam98ing gun laws that don't work, and have been proven to not work every time they are tried.

I don't think like you do. I don't care if the mayor is R or D or I.

I care that people are being killed. And after interacting with you all day, I feel like I need a bath to wash the filth off me. You're going back on Ignore.
Good choice. Person is nothing more than a troll. Waste of space and time

You're just a white boi pretending to be black like me; however, you easily gave yourself away. GTFOH!!

The 22-year-old man arrested over the mass shooting at a July 4 parade in Highland Park once attended a Donald Trump rally dressed up as the character from “Where’s Waldo”.
Leave it to your dumbass to miss the point. He's not a Trump supporter.

Guess you "missed" this part of the article...


Mr Crimo was also pictured in a Chicago Tribune story about the rally, where the protest was described as “tense” with supporters and counter-protesters facing off against each other.

Another photo circulating online shows Mr Crimo wrapped in a blue Mr Trump flag.

It has also emerged that Mr Crimo’s father, Bob Crimo, only follows one account on Twitter – an archived account of Mr Trump’s tweets.


Mayor Nancy Rotering, who took on and beat Mr Crimo’s father Bob Crimo for the role, said on Tuesday that she expects the 22-year-old to be charged over the July 4 attack later today.

Prior to the massacre, Mr Crimo had posted several disturbing videos glorifying violence on his YouTube account.

Crimo has ties to the Democratic Socialists of America as noted by the tattoo on his neck. This is the largest and fastest-growing socialist organization in the US.

Evidence reveals Crimo is not a Trump supporter. He makes fun of Trump and his followers in his social media posts. Crimo attended a Trump event dressed up as ‘Where’s Waldo’ outfit. This appears to be sarcasm and an attack on President 45 who may also be President 47.

His social media posts appear as if he wants to kill President 47.

One symbol which features prominently in the music video, as well as a number of other social media posts by the suspect, is reminiscent of a sign used by the Finnish far-right group Suomen Sisu.

Crimo was also the administrator of a Discord channel named "SS," the shortened moniker used by the infamous Nazi paramilitary group, the Schutzstaffel, who were mainly responsible for carrying out the numerous atrocities during the Holocaust, reported The Daily Beast.

So what you are saying is he's a sorry piece of scat? I doubt you'll get an argument from anyone here.

Bobby Crimo 'Antifa', pro-Trump Claims—What We Do Know, What We Don't
BY TOM NORTON ON 7/5/22 AT 10:16 AM EDT

The tragic shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, during a July 4 parade has caused both grief and frustration as the U.S. counts yet another mass shooting in 2022.

Suspect Robert "Bobby" Crimo III, 22, was arrested several hours after the tragic incident, which left six dead and more than two dozen injured.

The sheer brutality, much like with the recent shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas, precipitated in an outpour of public anger, leading many to speculate about the motivation behind the killings.

However, just as in those incidents, this provides a rich opportunity for others to spread hearsay, conjecture and misinformation.

In the case of Buffalo, its shooter left a wide range of right-wing extremist material online, but rumors still spread about his affiliations to groups that he did not sympathize with, like the Ukrainian army.

In Uvalde, websites such as Twitter and 4Chan helped spread fictitious claims that the culprit was a transgender immigrant, among other baseless statements.

These patterns of half- or mistruths have become something of a trend in the aftermath of mass shootings, with online detectives attempting to piece together character profiles and, in some cases, manipulate or shape the narrative for political means.

As Illinois grieves from Monday's tragedy, photos quickly spread suggesting that suspect Crimo was a Donald Trump or "MAGA" supporter, referencing photos which appear to show him at pro-Trump rallies and sporting Trump memorabilia.

In one video, it appears Crimo may have attended a gathering to see a presidential convoy, although it's not clear from the footage whether Trump was inside the motorcade or when it was shot.

These images would support the idea that Crimo sympathized with the former president and the political movements surrounding him. That said, there is no other verifiable information beyond these photos and videos that explain either the extent or intent of his admiration.

Conversely, others have suggested he had left-leaning sympathies. A series of photos were published which included references to the left-wing Antifa cause, comparing black riot gear Crimo was said to have posed with and the attire used by some Antifa supporters.

Other Twitter users claimed they had found Crimo's Instagram account with posts containing the Antifa flag. However, these Instagram accounts haven't been verified as authentic; searching Crimo's name on Instagram also shows what appears to be a number of copycat or fraudulent accounts set up following the shooting.


Conspiracy theorist subreddits also saw a flurry of posts speculating wildly about his purported 'antifa' leanings, including posts with outright manipulation that involves bundling together several unrelated, out-of-context, or debunked images to imply a connection.



This kind of behavior was rampant after the Uvalde shooting, when users said they had photos and information about the suspect, which in fact had been stolen from others and/or fabricated.

In any case, the information that we have about Crimo is limited. Although Crimo appears to have attended Trump rallies and may have made the effort to see the president in convoy, we still can't yet be certain about his motivation for doing so.

Nor can we state for certain if his political leanings (whatever they may transpire to be) impacted his decision. While it does appear that Crimo may have been supportive of Trump at some point, we don't know what the extent or authenticity of his support was.

We certainly cannot draw any conclusions that his support of a particular cause or person had any bearing on the acts of violence he allegedly committed.

Even in cases where such an influence seems clear-cut (such as that of the shooter in Buffalo), we still cannot say conclusively whether politics were the primary motivation given the typically complex underlying factors that motivate mass shooters.

Attempts to paint mass shooters against political sympathies without sufficient evidence, particularly so quickly after they have committed their crimes, represent a dangerous practice that may fuel misinformation.

Crucially, the counterproductive hyperpartisan fingerpointing tends to overshadow any constructive conversations around mental health and regulation of firearms that could help push towards effective solutions.

It also draws attention to the perpetrators of these crimes, promoting their infamy at the cost of those who have been killed, or even potentially inspiring future crimes.

A lot of good his membership will do in prison. You can't make this stuff up. Another Soros-paid attacker.

And are you scared that states run by Republicans lead in gun murders per 100k?

And last I checked the governor of a state has authority over a city mayor
State law has precedence over city ordinance

https://www.llrmi.com/articles/legal_questions/1-oct07/#:~:text=Generally, state statutes and state,contradiction to the state law.
Generally, state statutes and state constitutions regulate the power of a city to enact ordinances. Usually city ordinances that directly conflict with a state statute are not allowed. In other words, state statute usually “preempts” cities from enacting ordinances that are in direct contradiction to the state law.Jul 10, 2018



Did Pataki do anything to lower gun murders in NYC?
How about Eric Greitens in Missouri?
Kemp in Georgia do anything about gun murders?

Is DeSantis & the Florida congress unable to stop a democratic mayor in Florida from enacting stricter gun laws?

How about the governors of SC, NC, OK, TN...

They're just allowing gun violence to occur and not doing anything to stop it

Why aren't these republican governors responsible in your mind?
The mental gymnastics you people perform to justify politicizing gun violence is crazy. You have to be dumb or dishonest to believe this nonsense, you can decide which one you are.

Many ADHD meds are pharmaceutical meth. Guess what happens when little Johnny stops getting prescribed pharmaceutical meth???

Gun violence isn't a political issue?

Then why are the conservatives & trumpanzees on here blaming it on democratic run cities?

We once had a federal ban on assault rifles,,,
Has assault weapon violence gone down since the ban expired?

Reducing the number of guns on the street has worked

Expanding gun rights has only lead to more gun violence

Wait a minute
Reports on the day of the massacre said “eyewitnesses” described the suspected shooter “as a white male with long black hair”
How did they know Robert was a male when he was dressed as a female?

robert-bobby-crimo.jpg
Plus, he might think of himself as a woman. They clearly denied his gender rights by assuming he was male.
