8 People Dead, Several Wounded in Late-Night Mass Shooting at FedEx Facility in Indianapolis, Police Say

N.S.: In the wee hours of the morning, early reports were of ten dead and 60 wounded. Were those reports false, or are these? It used to be that one assumed that early reports would be false, and would gradually be correcte. I stopped believing that after 9/11. On 9/11 or the day after, I read and saw reports of 1. At least one fake pilot being arrested trying to pass through airport security (I can't recall which airport) with fake ID; and 2. Of an airline prep crew finding box cutter stuffed in between the cushions of one plane.

Those stories were immediately sent down the memory hole (not corrected, mind you). I still believe they were true.

Just after 9/11, Daily News TV critic Eric Mink wrote a column condemning not Arab Moslem terrorists, or Islam in general, but Americans! Vastly overrated, communist American director Robert Altman, then in London, also condemned Americans, as did a famous actress whose name escapes me, who was also in England at the time. The actress was clearly terrified of traveling home, but instead ranted aginst her own, grieving countrymen.

Those utterances and other expressions by famous writers and performers left no doubt that there was a very powerful group within America's media and academic institutions who celebrateedd the slaughter of Americans, and who could not be trusted to tell the truth about such slaughter. Thus, the initial reports were more reliable than those which came after the L├╝genpresse had had time to get their lies straight.

TWO POSSIBLE BITS OF INFO FROM THE LATEST STATEMENT BY INDY POLICE--IF YOU INTERPRET WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

(Startribune) — Police scoured a Fedex facility in Indianapolis and interviewed scores of witnesses Friday in search of a motive for the latest mass shooting to rock the U.S., as family members of the eight victims spent agonizing hours waiting for word on their loved ones.

Authorities identified the shooter as a young man in his 20s. They said they could not yet say why he opened fire with a rifle late Thursday night at a FedEx processing center near the Indianapolis airport.

(GRA:Here's the first bit of info).Police Chief Randal Taylor also noted that a "significant" number of employees at the facility are members of the Sikh community. Taylor spoke from a hotel where family members are awaiting word on their loved ones. He says he will stay with the families until they get more information.

Deputy Chief Craig McCartt of the Indianapolis police said the gunman started randomly shooting at people in the parking lot and then went into the building and continued firing. He said the gunman apparently died by suicide shortly before police entered the facility.

A witness described what happened(GRA:I capitalized the important words).
"I see a man come out with a rifle in his hand and he starts firing and HE STARTS YELLING STUFF THAT I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND," Levi Miller told WTHR-TV. "What I ended up doing was ducking down to make sure he did not see me because I thought he would see me and he would shoot me."

GRA:Foreign language,I take that as.
