Holy shit my sister and grandma almost went to this but my other sister didn't want to go so they all stayed home. RIP to the victims, this is fucking horrible.

jokes?? it’s just a quote from a movie, calm the fuck down.
You obviously lack either social or critical thinking skills. People are getting murdered and your first thought is comic book movies. And second thought is to post gifs in here. Maybe tomorrow when the next mass shooting happens sit the thread out.

The Festival has people coming in from all over the Bay Area so it is pretty diverse.

It's a big agricultural center (hence Garlic Festival) so the area is majority Hispanic with a white conservative minority

Gilroy has mostly a white population, plus with the festival being huge, it's drawing in all sorts of people from the area.

Edit: Reading conflicting stats on the demographics now. Some say a majority, others say not.

Wikipedia says not, so I'm going to assume between that and your link that the other sites I saw were incorrect.

Another white shooter killing innocents. Meanwhile, Trump is focused on trying to get Antifa added to the terrorist list.

Looking at the crowds, you can only be thankful for the 'incompetence' of the shooter, as the count could have been even more tragic.

Ugh... I haven't even been to the festival yet, but it like doesn't even matter where you go. Always bad news :( I was at the hospital today for a relative and it already sucks that they require metal detectors and security checks before you go in. I'll never get used to that...

I'm seeing pics of a supposed suspects post on social media claiming responsibility. Ain't posting that shit without confirmation first from official sources.

pretty much every single large event is going to need massive security. I was at quakecon and we had bag checks, police everywhere, and metal detectors. This is gonna be needed everywhere pretty soon.

There honestly is a greater concern in the US than some fucking border wall. Issues like Gun control.

When is America ever gonna wake up? Can't wait for the kids to grow up and can vote and can affect policy.
