Buffalo mass shooting: A white supremacist manifesto was written by shooter
We now know the identity of the gunman who murdered 10 people and injured three more at a Tops supermarket in Buffalo, New York, earlier this month. The state of New York has charged him with many charges of murder as of this writing. Payton Gendron is an 18-year-old from Conklin, New York.
In other words, he travelled more than three hours to commit a mass shooting in a mainly black area roughly 200 miles south of Buffalo. He allegedly stepped out of his car, opened fire on four persons in the parking lot, and killed three of them while injuring a fourth, who is currently hospitalised. An assault rifle was then drawn by the assailant, who then entered the supermarket and began firing at other customers.
Payton Gendron left a manifesto in which he discusses Tucker Carlson’s incendiary hypothesis, which he frequently discusses on his show. When it comes to diversity in the country, this is known as “the white replacement theory,” which perpetuates white supremacy. A number of Tucker’s favourite topics are included in this manifesto, which he frequently refers to on his show.
An ignorant Fox News personality has been encouraging young white guys to act on emotions fueled by white supremacist ideology. Payton’s family also had a hand in this result through his upbringing, and these messages from Fox News were not the only one.
There’s a video on his mother’s YouTube channel from a Christmas where she gives him a gun as a gift. In one of the films, a well-known firearms manufacturer named Savage can be plainly seen, as can Payton and his two brothers, all of whom appear to be opening gifts.
Giving your minor child access to a fatal firearm is a sure sign that he has internalised violence as a regular part of life. In this case, authorities should also pursue the mother as an accomplice to murder. No charges have been filed yet against the domestic terrorist who has pled not guilty to the murder of 10.
