Bamboozled No More! There Never Is Just One Shooter


 

Contrary to the news reports, there never is just one shooter.

There are masses of people sitting in backrooms, boardrooms and everything in between who cheer and applaud the shooter, their hero.

There never is just one shooter.

There is the one who bought the gun, the other who supplied the ammo, the one who aimed and the other who fired the gun, and of course those who supplied the “Get Out of Jail Forever” card.

There are the many who relived the massacre as a dream come true, forever ready to push that reset button over and over, again and again.

There never is nor was just one shooter.

There is a whole world within our world that birthed the shooter.

They sit and pace in backrooms, boardrooms, everyday people wearing uniforms, blue with buttons or white robes with hoods (not to be confused with hoodies), longing to transform the murder site into a national landmark.

Contrary to the news reports, there never is just one shooter.
