Why do we know so little about the Kalamazoo mass shooter?

Filed in National by on February 23, 2016

He shot and killed six people on Saturday. Do you know his name? It is Jason Dalton. I had to look it up. Basically, we don’t know squat about the guy other than the fact that he was an Uber driver. Can it be because he is “lone wolf” white guy? I mean, even if you are the kind of person who resists seeing things through the prism of race, you have to admit that we’d know a whole hell of a lot more about this guy by now if his name was لميد. جيسون دالتون

Kalamazoo — During two interviews with police, an Uber driver spoke calmly and matter-of-factly when he acknowledged killing six people and injuring two others, a police official said Monday.

What Jason Dalton didn’t say was why.

The lack of a reason continues to bedevil law enforcement officials and a community reeling from the shooting rampage Saturday night.

Dalton, 45, was stoic when he waived his right against self-incrimination and admitted his role in the shootings, said 1st Lt. Chuck Christensen, a detective with the Michigan State Police.

    There is a growing movement in the media to provide as few details about mass killers as possible in order to downplay the copycat idea. Don’t know if that’s the case here or not. See stuff by Dave Cullen, author of “Columbine.”

    You don’t know more about this guy because no one needs to advance the group pathology that would be the media (and white people’s, really) effort if this guy was black, hispanic or muslim.
