Obama is already politicizing without even knowing the facts behind it. If the students said they were Christians, the shooter shot them in the head.
Chris Harper Mercer, 26, has been identified as the gunman who killed nine people on Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon, according to news reports.
Mercer was killed in a shootout with Douglas County sheriff’s deputies, according to Sheriff John Hanlin.
Mercer reportedly was not a student at the college. The New York Times, quoting law enforcement officials, reported that he lived in the Roseburg area.
Mercer reportedly demanded to know the religions of those around him before opening fire.
Four guns — three handguns and a long gun — were reportedly found at the scene.
Mercer still has a Myspace up, with two connections, a man and a woman. The man, Mahmoud Ali Ehsani, appears to have a great passion for Islamists, posting multiple pictures of ‘Mujahideen’ from every country with Islamic terrorists and saying ‘kill the Jews’.
He appeared to be enamored of the IRA. He also praised Roanoke killed Vester Flanagan:
Mercer admired black gay killer Vester Flanagan who shot the reporter and cameraman on live T.V.:
In a blog linked to that identity, Harper-Mercer expressed admiration for Roanoke shooter Vester Flanagan.
People “like him have nothing left to live for,” Harper-Mercer wrote on August 31. “On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are. … A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight. “
