Not even 24 hours have passed since the deadliest mass shooting in the US has taken place and the imagery is still fresh in the global mind. Keeping all political affiliations aside, it’s one of the most tragic nights to occur since 9/11 and baiting for one side or another is bound to occur when the smoke clears. Like the man in the video below, we’ve decided to just say f*** that.
While the crowd huddled behind whatever meager protection they could find, updating social media with tragic accounts of the things they’ve seen; telling friends and family that there was nothing to worry about, they were safe. So much was going on at once it was almost like what you’d find straight out of an action movie, but some random guy in a black tank top spoke all the words and made all the gestures anyone needed. Amidst the flurry of gunshots emerging from a nearby window and presumably when the shooter was reloading, the man screamed “F*** You!” He also flipped the bird while stretching out above the rest of the huddled masses.
There have been quite a few people who’ve noted the stupidity/bravery it would take to actively cry out at a man shooting at you, but in the end he made it out alive. To the now deceased gunman from everyone in America, spoken by a single soul:
And whomever begins with gun law rhetoric in the wake of a disaster such as this, why don’t you have a moment of peace and silence for those that didn’t make it out alright? Show some empathy instead of self-service and you’d be surprised at how much change the world could embrace.
