Mass Rap Shooting

Posted on April 19, 2016

Safe PassageThe FBI defines a mass shooting as an event where four or more people are killed and/or wounded within the same incident. By definition, another rapper/bullet magnet leaving one dead and four others wounded, would be a mass shooting:

“Damond Dawson was “goofing around” with his brother and other relatives and friends, rapping and shooting video in Foster Park when two gunmen opened fire early Tuesday, killing Dawson and wounding four others, according to police and relatives.

“Basically like an ambush,” said Dawson’s aunt, Angela Mathis-Tate, 44. “One coming west of the park and one coming south.”

The shooting happened around 2:20 a.m. as Dawson, 23, and a small group were “rapping around [taking] selfies with their phones” at Foster Park at 1440 W. 84th St, according to relatives.

Dawson was shot once in the back of the head and collapsed in the middle of the park, between a building and a playground. He was pronounced dead on the scene.”

However, since the media defines as mass shooting as an event where two or more people are killed and/or wounded within the same incident in the suburbs with non-minority victims with background-less-checked weapons supplied by the NRA via the Internet/gun show, this doesn’t count. No further laws or “actions” needed.
