8 year old Londin Thomas was with her Parents at Tops shopping for a Birthday Surprise. They were buying grilling supplies, ingredients and cake mix. "We were buying some cake mix for my mama. She did not know. She was at the meat section so we could grill," Londin said. She was with her dad when the shots started. Lamont Thomas, Londin’s dad, grabbed her and ran to hide in a cooler.
Shopping is a necessity in everyone's lives, I go almost every week. It's not a place where anyone should be worried about their lives.
The shooter was a young self proclaimed white supremacist. His name is Payton Gendron, he is 18 years old and responsible for killing,
10 people: Roberta A. Drury, 32, Margus D. Morrison, 52, Andre Mackniel, 53, Aaron Salter, 55, Geraldine Talley, 62, Celestine Chaney, 65, Heyward Patterson, 67, Katherine Massey, 72,
Pearl Young, 77, Ruth Whitfield, 86,
Most of the victims were elders, who prolly couldn't run or take cover fast enough. One of the victims was the security guard of the store.
Payton Gendron had planned this for a long time, He had customized weapons with extended clips and many attachments. He wanted guns that would stand out in his video he would stream with his go pro to twitch. He did stream for the first two minutes of the massacre, But why does this happen, why is someone my age killing 10 people, going out of his way to kill these people.
Growing up in this society of no culture and just confusion. Culture here is violent, art is violent, games are violent, schools are violent, lifestyles are violent, Violence is the Culture. The idea of division, The idea of hating the unknown, the different, the misunderstandable.
