    BOTH links go to the same shooting, where is the link dealing with the white supremacist"?

    It's a gotcha thread.

    Here is the story from the Star-Tribune.

    Some reports two white men, and one Asian. Hopefully some vertical videos show up of the incident.

    The headline and story are copied directly from CBS. Nothing "gotcha" about it unless you're one of those radicals who think that every other news outlet besides "Fox News" is the gotcha media.
    For reference from Google News:

    Your comment that all white people should denounce this act is. You're comparing it to the Syrian refugees, weren't you?

    Ahh... The Fox News bit. Vrdrew, is that you?

    Let me make this simple, so you can understand:

    I define "gotcha" threads as being based on either trivialities (eg. some guy no one has ever heard of makes an ill-advised Tweet) - or stories that are either demonstrably false, or so distorted as to lose all resemblance to reality.

    The situation here hardly series me as trivial: Apparently a group of people deliberately fired into a Black Lives Matter protest. The facts, while not completely detailed, seem pretty unambiguous.

    Imagine what the reaction would have been if a group of Muslim Americans had fired at pretty much anything or anybody.

    From the way it reads, the proper word for this would be alleged.

    Like they did with Malcolm Little? I guess the reaction would have been to have them arrested and tried before a jury.

    Why, what do you think the reaction would have been if Muslim Americans had fired at "pretty much anything or anybody"?

    This thread is about the people that got shot while protesting the shooting in your post. I know the US has a lot of shootings so sometimes it is hard to get them straight, but how about you stick with the topic of the thread. I'd imagine there is an earlier thread on the first shooting that triggered the protests if you want to discuss that one.

    The question is, what were they doing to draw attention to themselves? Why were they asked to leave? Right now, it's suspicious as hell, considering the rumors flying about, and the fact these men came back shortly thereafter and open fired on the crowd (which obviously isn't justifiable, no matter how much you may disagree with the BLM movement), but there isn't enough evidence to say they were 100% white supremacists.

    tempers have to be short with massive crowds chanting/talking late at night near neighborhoods, both sides are suspicious of each other, watch the video posted

    Wait so the BLM group with their faces covered, wearing hoods, was yelling at a different group of people who were also wearing hoods and masks. Then the BLM group starts punching the other group and a mob from the BLM group chases the other group around the corner where 8 rounds were fired at the the BLM members who were chasing them.

    You would be a terrible writer for Huffington, Addictinginfo, and DailyKos.

    We would've bombed another 3rd world country (related or not) by morning.
