Another unusual mass shooting, but this one didn't make the US news.

    Doctor sends a letter a YEAR AGO threatening to shoot any body who comes on his property over some minor zoning violation in his upscale neighborhood. Now last week he goes into a church shooting, killing one 73 year old neighbor and critically injuring another at a homeowners association meeting.

    That's an unusual story. Weird how it didn't interest the US media, just didn't fit the narrative I guess. I dunno, read the story and see if you can find any reason that the media chose to ignore this one. Nothing to see here, move along.

    I don't disagree with your overall point.

    But do you really think that one death and a critical injury counts as a "mass" shooting?

    Proof that home owner's associations can drive people absolutely batty.

    Not that it excuses what he did, he should have just packed up and bought a home that wasn't under the thumb of a home owner's association. They tend to make your neighbors very unneighborly and out to get you if there is the slightest code violation, or if your lawn isn't green, or the paint on your fake shutters is starting to flake. I guess some people like living in a neighborhood where everything is controlled and perfect looking, but I find rows of houses that all look the same creepy. :paranoid: Reminds me of that episode of the X-files, where a monster would drag people away and kill them if the policies of the home owner's association were violated.

    I saw it on several different local news channels. My mistake, I saw it on Comcast News.

    Maybe they shouldn't have set foot on his property.
