The mass shooter in Dayton, Ohio, whose name is being withheld to prevent adoration by others, reportedly had a previous incident that should have raised red flags before the shooting.

According to CNN, during his sophomore year of high school, he was “pulled off of the bus” after it was discovered he had a “kill list” and a “rape list.”

“Several students [are] telling us that it was their understanding from school administrators at the time that this suspect, this now-dead suspect, had in his possession what was described to them by administrators as a kill list and a rape list and the student was removed from school, at that time, it was very threatening. [He was] writing threats against the students. Described by several students as this kill list and rape list. And according to Spencer Brickler, one day during his sophomore year, he actually witnessed this shooter being removed from the bus by police.”

The former student told CNN that it was during his freshman year he saw the Ohio shooter pulled off of the school bus by uniformed police officers.

“I happened to be on it,” the former student said. “I don’t know why. We just got off of school and were all getting on the bus to go home and, I mean, I just sat down, me and my sister just sitting down. And he sat down, I think he was behind us, and I look up, and there’s (sic) two police officers standing on the bus asking him to get off the bus, go with them. I was confused.”

Spencer wondered what was happening in his life that would make him want to kill people.

Another student said that he liked to point his fingers at her and pretend to shoot her.

"He exposed himself during a Zoom call last week between members of the New Yorker and WNYC radio," uncited sources told Motherboard.

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera," Toobin told Motherboard in a statement. "I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers… I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video.”

Speaking with host John Berman, the mayor explained that the city has been waiting on a check from the president or his campaign, and have been left holding the bag for rent, increased security and traffic control.

According to the mayor, a letter was sent to the president detailing conditions that need to be met before he appears there.

Senate Republicans are fed up with Trump’s ‘kook’ anti-mask doctor: report

Published

on

On CNN Monday, White House correspondent John Harwood tore into President Donald Trump for relying on the medical advice of Dr. Scott Atlas to inform his COVID-19 health policy — and said that it all but shuts the door on crafting a cohesive national strategy that will be supported by his own allies in the Senate.

"In the context of the public health discussion, Scott Atlas is a kook," said Harwood. "He sent that tweet over the weekend suggesting that mask-wearing does not work, which was contradicted by Brett Giroir, a member of the task force, and contradicted by everyone who works in public health — contradicted, by the way, by Mitch McConnell, who has been a faithful proponent of mask-wearing and the merits of mask-wearing."
