Shooting at a nightclub in Florida - 2 confirmed killed, 14-17 injured

It just won't stop this Summer.

Quote:
At least two people have been killed and as many as 17 injured after a shooting at a nightclub in Fort Myers in western Florida. The incident took place during a ‘teen night’ with some of people at the event as young as 13.
The shooting took place at Club Blu in the early hours of Monday morning, according to Lt. Jim Mulligan of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office. He said that two people have been killed, while as many as 17 people have been injured.

The scene has been described as “a mad house” and there have been reports of gunshots as people were exiting the nightclub, according to Wink News, a television station based in Fort Myers.

Another witness says that she heard around 30 gunshots from the scene and believes that these came from a number of weapons.

The shooter may have been apprehended and might be a 13 year old boy.

This world is getting worse and worse every day.

Not true. For example, gun violence in the US is much lower than in the 1990's and before

The big difference is that today, you wake up with horrible news on your smartphone about violence in all the corners of the world. In the past (before the internet), you would not have heard about those events far away or ignored the headlines in the newspapers, because they don't concern you.

What is sad about this daily "tsunami of bad news" is that people really believe that everything is in chaos and then vote for a leader who promises order, simple solutions and a return to a cosy past that never existed.

Yep. The main player in Brexit, Trump, increased tribalist tension, etc is the sensationalist media.

I do agree that it was more violent in the 60's for example, however nobody can't deny that these acts of terror haven't been happening this often in our civilisation for the last 15-20 years.

Are you suggesting that this shooting was an "act of terror?

It was quiet different as Russia is not totally part of the Western civilisation, plus it was the time right after their political system collapsed after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Unless you are thinking that our political system is also collapsing (which might be the case) I don't think that the reasons are the same as now.

Hmmm . . . so you use "terror" but you don't mean terrorism?
