    hopefully the shooter is the only one dead.

    This is getting a little crazy.

    Re: Several people shot outside Empire State Building

    I was just going to post this.

    Does anyone else think that a lot of "monkey-see, monkey-do" has to play into these? It's getting old hearing about innocent people dying in these public mass shootings.

    If this happened away from a national landmark we wouldn't even hear about it. National news is going to report every shooting for a while. Just how media works.

    Really? I think somebody shooting strangers indiscriminately usually makes the news, whether it is by a national landmark or not.

    Before the Colorado shooting, how may new reports did you hear about people getting shot on a weekly basis? Next to zero.


    Guess what random people were still getting shot.

    Re: Several people shot outside Empire State Building

    These types of shootings are not common and will typically be reported I think, but there are often multiple shootings every weekend in Chicago at least.

    People get shot on a daily basis. People getting ambushed is rare, however.

    Seems to happen every night in Chicago. It does make the news though, gets a couple minute blurb, then you never hear about it again, because the next shooting takes the spotlight.

    I do get it though, when it happens in the hood, people can just put it away, "Well, I won't go there." but when it happens in front of a large tourist attraction or where anyone could be, they definitely put a "You're not safe anywhere" vibe to it.

    Ambush - A surprise attack by people lying in wait in a concealed position.

    I'll wait for the police report before suggesting it was an "ambush".
