That, but also send him to a psychologist and some therapy while in jail. He’s going to get out eventually, and I’d rather he improve himself than shoot people in 10 years.


_welcome t1_iyevl56 wrote

honestly, I'm tired of people making every potential or actual shooter a mental health patient. I'm not saying he shouldn't get therapy, but people want to pretend therapy is an easy answer to fixing people who want to shoot up a place. The reality is the majority of people with mental illness are nonviolent, some people are just evil, and all the therapy in the world probably won't change someone. therapy and mental health isn't the answer to resolve the majority of america's mass shooting problems.


im4lonerdottie4rebel t1_iyewuri wrote

Yes but therapy helps with self reflection. It helps to uncover why we believe certain beliefs, why we take certain actions and why we behave certain ways.


JohnHwagi t1_iyf89id wrote

I’m not sure I agree with the assertion that psychological treatment is not able to significantly reduce the chance of someone engaging in a mass shooting.

While people that shoot others are unlikely to seek treatment themselves, it should be forced upon people who commit violent crimes. Many shooters have massive red flags that should have led to arrest and psychological treatment prior to the shooting.


majora9109 t1_iyfdery wrote

How is psych treatment reducing the chance of anything if it's not applied or the person isn't actively seeking treatment.

Red flags exist, but you can't force someone to just not do something unless you put them in a box. So there's going to continue to be shooters until we come up with a better solution.

Uh oh, you triggered the Republicans, so now you're either going to be brutally murdered, or nothing at all will happen. It's a weird system at the moment because republican view points can only be considered from Q anon posts.


Bagellord t1_iyd4b4e wrote

No, he should be tried and convicted of making threats. Then he'll be a prohibited person for life (barring any eligibility for expungement).


VenserSojo t1_iyd5gp5 wrote

Only if said threats result in a conviction of a felony or a year or more in jail.


needabiggerhammer t1_iyeoakz wrote

>conviction of a felony or a year or more in jail.

Minor pedantic moment, but people seem to miss this: That should read "punishable by a year or more in jail". Even if the defendant just gets a fine, if the crime allows for a year+ it counts as a federal disability (basically it is a felony even if not called one).


Bagellord t1_iyd5oyo wrote

Depends on what charges they bring, but I imagine they're going to throw the book at him.

Let’s be real, it’s Georgia. He’ll be out with an interview scheduled for the local police department and a voucher for a discount gun within a week

Malaix t1_iycezfn wrote

I remember when those oathkeepers got arrested from their clowncar uhaul raid on a gay pride event and a lot of them looked like they had FAS. One of the repeating behavioral characteristics of FAS is a tendency toward violent behavior and joining violent groups. So that at least sort of explained a number of those.

But yeah. untreated mental illness is going to be a huge trend among these people.

I miss the ATL gay scene. Heretic in particular is one of the best nightclubs I’ve ever been to. Like, you get the whole experience there. Everything from good music, lights, DJs, leather shop, relaxed patio, and… spooky darkness.

Spreading information without conformation or even truth is misinformation.


Classic-Kitchen-7665 t1_iyb9021 wrote

Confirmation** not conforming to something, and agreed. But I doubt the members of the LGBTQ community would lie about him being one of them. But yes I agree spreading misinfo should be something that’s handled. his arrest records are also linked on there so I’ll let everyone draw what conclusions they will. I’m not trying to spread an inflammatory rumor if it seems that way, just trying to keep non-locals in the loop.

Why so much hate towards LGTBQ?


zeddknite t1_iybkmwm wrote

I don't know the details about this case, but in general, conservative media figures have been spreading misinformation, to encourage hate towards them.


TheGreyOne889 t1_iycp12l wrote

And the media CONTINUES to cover it, thus putting it in the forefront. Nobody would know about a bunch of inbred hicks protesting a drag brunch if the media wasn't there. It's a problem. There is literal blood on conservative media hands. And non conservative media should know better than to draw further attention.


19Backrooms93 t1_iybmgsw wrote

I thought the guy in the thumbnail was making threats to LGBTQ? That’s why I asked why so much hate towards them? Why did I get downvoted? Is Reddit homophobic or something?

Elanapoeia t1_iycvjnv wrote

Gay people have long been a target for being otherized and blamed for societies ills (also black people and jews...anyone non white and non-cishet, really). For a while, homosexuality was on a pretty good upwards trend in social acceptance and most open forms of hatred thrown towards them was viewed as very negatively in the westernmainstream, and even anti-gay hategroups tried to keep a low profile and not be too public about their homophobia.

Because of that, Trans people became the new target for the socially conservative, being talked about in the exact same manner gay people used to be talked about. Society wasn't ready for any form of larger trans acceptance and false narratives demonizing trans people took very strong hold in american society recently. The hatred of trans people allowed the same groups who always hated gay people, but now pretended to only be against trans people, to sublty expand their open hatespeech towards gay people again as the LGBTQ label includes both homosexuality and transness. Suddenly, being anything sexually or gender non-normative is receiving strong vocal demonization in the mainstream again, leading to increased hatred and eventually....action. And as we see with the person talked about in the OP, this demonization can affect even gay people themselves, as these narratives can lead to intense self-hatred. And if you're also generally mentally unwell and on drugs already, that's a bad combination.

Ultimately, the reason for LGBTQ hatred is just the fact that there needs to be an outgroup that can be blamed for whatever fits a narrative, so that the general masses can be distracted from actual issues. If your audience is too occupied hating LGBTQ people, they're too distracted to notice that you are actually a fraud and won't rise up against you etc etc. This applies to politicians as much as it does to social commentators who make money off of selling narratives. Trans people acted as a very potent outgroup to rally people up against, and with the success against trans people, now we are seeing attempts to expand the outgroup so it includes gays and lesbians as well, because if your audience is already convinced that one group part of a progressive movement/label like LGBTQ is fundamentally bad, it's easy to expand that impression towards any group within the movement/label.

For anyone doubting this, the Republicans still have overturning obergefell (named specifically) in their current party platform. Re-banning and invalidating existing gay marriages is literally their stated stance. Just because a handful got a hall pass to vote with the democrats to protect gay marriage doesn't mean that they won't turn around if they ever get the chance and make gay people second class citizens again. They literally just did it with abortion, after all their recent Supreme Court picks said under oath that it was settled law.

Good people don't want to break up marriages, and good people are honest.
