Man “harboring extremist views” (actually completely standard Republican views) murders five people in DenverComments
I be this guy was a HUGE Lauren Boebert fan:
THE gunman accused of killing five people pledged “he would never go unarmed” as he posted several chilling red flags before his deadly rampage.
Cops identified Lyndon McLeod, 47, as the suspect following the spate of deadly shootings that hit Denver and Lakewood, Colorado on Monday.
Of the five people McLeod is suspected of killing, three worked in tattoo shops and another was gunned down near a parlor, according to local media.
McLeod quoted Hunter S Thompson in a snap of him relaxing in a hot tub.
He said: “I swore I’d never go unarmed again.”
Thompson is a late American journalist and author, known for his 1967 works Hell’s Angels.
McLeod, who reportedly also had several extremist views, published a three-book sci-fi series from 2018 to 2020 that appears to glorify violence.
He reportedly harbored extremist views and alt-right conspiracy theories online.
Hey what were those extremist views exactly? Did he support Critical Race Theory? Joe Biden’s socialism? Vaccine mandates?
McLeod shared a Covid conspiracy meme on Twitter that appears to show Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg and Microsoft founder Bill Gates discussing an “injectable nanoworm”. . . .
Last year, the suspected gunman ranted about emasculated men.
McLeod said: “Our entire society is made up of sh***y little f***s who insult badasses & get away with it because law enforcement & social norms protect the WEAK from the STRONG. I’m over it. The weak better buckle up… s**t is about to get real.”
McLeod was reportedly known to authorities before he allegedly carried out the deadly attacks.
Cops said he opened fire in at least eight different locations before dying in an exchange of gunfire, according to the Denver Post.
Alicia Cardenas and Alyssa Gunn-Maldonado were killed at Sol Tribe Tattoo and Piercing on Broadway in Denver.
Alicia’s dad Alfredo told KMGH-TV that she owned the tattoo parlor and had worked in the location for 15-20 years.
Alyssa’s husband Jimmy Maldonado, who worked as a piercer, was wounded in the attacks.
Danny Scofield was killed at Lucky 13 Tattoo on Kipling Street in Lakewood, according to Heavy.
A woman named Sarah Steck, who was working at the Hyatt House in Belmar, was also killed.
Cops said McLeod spoke briefly to her before gunning her down.
A fifth victim, who has not yet been identified, was killed at a home on Williams Street near Cheesman Park in Denver, according to the Colorado Sun.
A Lakewood officer was injured after being shot. Police said she is in a stable condition but will require more surgeries.
Hey was this a white guy?
Witnesses said the cop urged McLeod to put down his weapon.
The “extremist views” that Lyndon McLeod spouted before he started shooting people are essentially identical to those espoused by Boebert, Greene, Cawthorn, Gosar, and the other leading lights of the Republican party in 2021.
