Five Killed, Eighteen Wounded In Colorado Springs

A shooting at an LGBTQ club in Colorado Springs killed five people and injured 18 others overnight, police said early Sunday.

Club Q, where police said the first call came in minutes before midnight, described it as a “hate attack.”

Lt. Pamela Castro, a police spokesperson, told reporters the suspect was injured, in custody and receiving treatment at a hospital. It was not immediately clear whether the suspect was one of the 18 injured. She declined to comment on a motive and said the FBI was assisting in the investigation.

GUARANTEE this is right-wing terrorism.


Maybe, let’s wait for more information


I’m thinking a gay lover’s trist… but let’s see.

Hopefully the FBI isn’t involved with this one… again!




What is “this” ^^^^ gay lovers killing themselves ?. .

LGBTQ people are always so mentally stable so couldn’t possibly one of them that did it.


Another blue state shootout?

That is my bet as well. Almost all ‘club shootings’ are personal beefs, not political violence. Anger + alcohol + sexually-charged atmosphere + guns don’t mix well.


Lol, the pulse nightclub shooting begs to differ

Initial statements indicate the people in the club subdued the shooter

After the police received an initial call about an active shooting at 11:57 p.m., Lieutenant Castro said, officers entered the club and took into custody an individual they believed to be a suspect. The suspect was also injured and was being treated at a hospital, Lieutenant Castro said.

In a statement on its Facebook page, Club Q said it was “devastated by the senseless attack on our community.”

The club added, “We thank the quick reactions of heroic customers that subdued the gunman and ended this hate attack.”

There are shootings at bars and nightclubs every weekend. Most are not “hate crimes”.

Maybe this was an argument between people who knew each other and someone unloaded on a crowd (like that basketball game earlier this year) or maybe it was some guy who hated gays and shot the place up. We can’t know yet.

One thing to note - whenever you see a large amount of people “injured” but not killed it’s often a dipshit aimlessly shooting. Mass shooters with an AR put up better numbers.

Either way, we should wait to hear more.


You’re right, that was extreme muslimism. Whether they’re throwing gays off buildings or shooting them at clubs with no security cameras or any of the hundreds of gays having phones or any of the eye witnesses that said they had to crawl over 50 dead bodies but don’t have any blood on them… At least they shoot them peacefully!


A bunch of unarmed, gay ravers in Colorado are braver than TX cops armed to the teeth.

Not surprised!


somethings got to stick eventually… right??


Which part of ‘almost’ don’t you understand?

There are club shootings every weekend somewhere in America, and almost all of them are due to drunks getting into personal beefs and settling it with a gun. One exception does not change that.

Besides, Pulse wasn’t a anti-gay hate crime, it was an anti-American hate crime. Mateen was just looking to shoot up a club to protest American wars in the Middle East. He wasn’t particularly concerned about the sexuality of the patrons at Pulse, he just saw it as a target-rich environment.

On June 12, 2016, Mateen spent just over three hours in PULSE from the time he began slaughtering innocent people at roughly 2:00 a.m. until he was killed by a SWAT team at roughly 5:00 a.m. During that time, he repeatedly spoke to his captives about his motive, did the same with the police with whom he was negotiating, and discussed his cause with local media which he had called from inside the club. Mateen was remarkably consistent in what he said about his motivation. Over and over, he emphasized that his attack at PULSE was in retaliation for U.S. bombing campaigns in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. In his first call with 911 while inside PULSE, this is what he said about why he was killing people:

Because you have to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq. They are killing a lot of innocent people. What am I to do here when my people are getting killed over there. … You need to stop the U.S. airstrikes. They need to stop the U.S. airstrikes, OK? . … This went down, a lot of innocent women and children are getting killed in Syria and Iraq and Afghanistan, OK? … The airstrikes need to stop and stop collaborating with Russia. OK?

In the hours he spent surrounded by the gay people he was murdering, he never once uttered a homophobic syllable, instead always emphasizing his geo-political motive. Not a single survivor reported him saying anything derogatory about LGBTs or even anything that suggested he knew he was in a gay club. All said he spoke extensively about his vengeance on behalf of ISIS against U.S. bombing of innocent Muslims.

Mateen’s postings on Facebook leading up to his attack all reflected the same motive. They were filled with rage about and vows of retaliation against U.S. bombing. Not a single post contained any references to LGBTs let alone anger or violence toward them. “You kill innocent women and children by doing U.S. airstrikes,” Mateen wrote on Facebook in one of his last posts before attacking PULSE, adding: “Now taste the Islamic state vengeance.”
