Former Classmates Of Colorado Supermarket Shooting Suspect Speak Out | Ayman Mohyeldin | MSNBC


    1. @Johan Nilsson well said and great thoughts shared… we’re all human… “even Muslims”…. we’re all having a human experience and it can be very very hard… beyond hard for many… I’m struggling so much with my own traumas…

      hopefully love and empathy continue to grow and grow in our world as people awaken and rise in consciousness from 3D to 5d and awaken into the light from so much darkness that we are grappling with now as the light shines on the dark

    2. I’ve seen people younger looking older and vice versa. Life doesn’t impact us all the same.

    3. @Insignificant360 columbine wasn’t because those kids were bullied, it was because they were white supremacists. They left behind manifestos that clearly explained this.

    1. I think schools are kind of like the police in that they’re having to deal with a lot of stuff that really isn’t in their wheelhouse. And as it turns out there’s a bit more involved in human development than building a ladder of financial independence.

    2. @E.T. Ethics in my daughters case the kids who sent her death threats and made fun of her appearance and her siblings including her 8 yr old brother were foster kids. There were 5 kids who ran the harassment at that school and they were foster kids all from different homes

    3. @freeze peach the teachers can’t do anything except ask the bullies to stop. They can suspend but if the parents don’t get there kids to stop it will continue. In my daughters case they began to completely ignore her because they just didn’t want to deal with it. Even the police couldn’t do anything because the death threats were on Snapchat meaning the messages could have been sent by anyone not just the account user. Total bs

    1. @Jared Linn Maybe you should be comforting apollo. According to him he is the one that’s misunderstood. While you’re at it tell him he wasn’t the only one that served. Secondly, you can try and calm the “woke” of the survivors of that mass murder and families of the people who were gunned down, dude.

    2. @very dark passenger While Apollo didn’t post the best comment in the world, he did not idolize the shooter or support his actions. Focus your woke at the real issue: domestic terrorism. Not some dude on the internet that didn’t take the time to see if his comment was appropriate. You should be upset at the mass murder which had taken place. Not some dumb comment on YouTube. If you want to make a real difference then contact you representative and push for gun reform.

    3. @Jared Linn I can’t deny you make some very good points and I will take them into consideration, meanwhile, I was in the market for a life coach. Are you taking new clients at this time.

  1. I am surprised that his parents didn’t see this coming if their child had an anger issue. If your child is isolating himself, it is something that you should pay attention to.

    1. @t That’s the problem in the US compared to almost all other rich countries. In Sweden where I live, mental health is free of charge for the individual because everyone pays into the health insurance via our taxes. I think implementing universal healthcare would greatly reduce mass murders like these, and of course make the average physical and mental health of Americans much better.

      In Sweden, we have a big and growing problem of mental health problems, especially among young people, leading to suicides, drug problems, homelessness etc., but I think it’s nothing compared to the mental health problems in the US. At least here, people can afford mental health. It’s on the supply side we can improve, because some suicidal people must wait way too long for help.

    2. @Johan Nilsson I have seen no confirmation that he is even muslim. He has a muslim sounding name, but even the Muslim center in Boulder doesn’t know if he practices Islam or any religion at all. Not everyone in or from Syria is muslim. They could have been worried about discrimination, it’s true, of the very sort your’e displaying here by making assumptions about his religion based upon his name. If you have seen confirmation that he practices islam, then I apologize. But I have seen no such confirmation, myself, and I have looked.

  2. So he had anger management issues, he also had prior issues with the law but yet he was able to get a gun. The signs were there that he was not a stable person.

    1. @David Galehouse Where does that accusation stem from? What did I say to make you think I believe in conspiracy theories? Are you just placing blame without evidence like MSNBC and CNN do?

    2. @Rhonda Marshall Thanks for your heartfelt post. But, I want to throw this idea in: Religion, if done right, should give a person’s life a meaning beyond the taunts of some immature high school kids. One should see, that they may have a greater purpose in life, and that trials in their youth might make them stronger, and give them ability to accomplish greater things.

      But in your case, from your post, I see that you are looking at things from a bigger picture already. i predict that good things will be happening to you. Just keep an open heart, have compassion for others, and look ay your own mistakes, as lessons to be learned. Take this from an old man, who has been blessed to have seen a lot of life. So I pass on my blessings, to you. And so it is.

    3. @hillside I’m sure I was overstating my point but that’s about where this world stands nowadays… 🤦

    1. @Lisa B in Hawaii gang stalking and community mobbing are out of control in the United states, its like living in east Germany.

  3. If it was because of bullying why not go after the people who you had an issue with? The people at the supermarket probably didn’t even know him

    1. It sounds like he wanted to shoot up his high-school, but maybe he couldn’t get his hands on a gun back then. Remember, the suspect is 21 now so that means he’s no longer in high-school and those students who bullied him are also long gone.

  4. Looks like everyone saw this coming & ignored it. Everything they said is a sign the shooter was at his edge.

    1. One starts to ask, what is FBI and CIA really for? Signs were obvious, maybe they wanted him to do it? 😐

    2. I don’t agree that the signs were obvious or the edge was that much telling – bullied, angry, and paranoid – take a closer look at people around you – no matter which social circle you’re in – I guarantee you’ll find several w/ those signs.

    1. @TheGuide it would be a lot less tragic of an outcome if it wasn’t so easy to waltz down to the gun store and pick up a few things to murder a bunch of people with on a whim.

    2. Mental health issues have such a stigma. When this kid acted out like that he should have been sent directly to the school counselor. And it’s time that school counselors start earning their keep as well.

    3. @Blackjay B I’m not sure what you mean. It’s pretty obvious that neither of these guys were “wrapped too tight.” But for a cop to say he was having a bad day was kind of weird and inappropriate. Young people are sometimes more vulnerable than people realize. They’re kind of hard to support because they bottle a lot up.

    4. No, trauma lived through your childhood stays with you for the rest of your life, if not dealt with. The anger spreads throughout time, and the recipients of your anger could be anybody. Don’t you have no psychological understanding of how a human being functions?!!!

    5. Yeah, no one pulled the trigger but him.. obviously, but maybe this wouldn’t have happened in general, be careful folks, it’s a scary world.

  5. He WAS a good guy! Well he’s not anymore kid. He’s now a mass murderer! 10 beautiful people are no longer here cuz of him he didn’t know them. They did nothing to him. No amount of bullying gives anyone the right to go out in public and take another human life period. My Condolences to all the Family’s that lost someone. May God be with you.

    1. i would bet my life you are a crappy diluted person that has no idea what being a good person is, let alone god.

    2. @Raffy Raffy you literally missed the point though. no space is needed to place a period. u got low iq .

  6. I was bullied a lot. Never once did I imagine randomly slaughtering innocent people as the solution to my problems.

    1. This was a very stupid interview. Why give the Attorneys for this killer ammo to get him a lesser sentence by giving the sympathy when it hits the courts? Moronic interview to actually do. The media should of let the police and Attorneys work out these details.

  7. An old friend from high school murdered someone in an exceptionally brutal way when we were in our 20s. I remember how shocking it was for our friend group as he’d given zero indication he was capable of doing something so vicious. We’d never even seen him get particularly angry. So I can understand the reflex to want to defend their friend. Unfortunately, some things are indefensible.

  8. If the shooter isn’t racist its cause society is racist and drove him to madness 🤣🤣 backwards world we live in

  9. I was bullied all through 12 yrs of school. I have a good and productive life! I understand anger but never did I ever think of hurting someone over it!! No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. MA my condolences to all the families affected 🙏💕

    1. I bet you did think of hurting someone. It’s human nature at one time or another in our life. It does not mean in a violent Sense at times but nobody can deny it.

  10. “I don’t want people to think he’s a Terrorist” meanwhile…… *guy commits mass shooting that kills 10 people *

    1. Terrorism has a very specific definition. Not every mass killing is motivated by the desire to commit terrorism. People there justifiably felt “terrorized” but that isn’t what makes it “terrorism” under the law. If the investigation reveals a terroristic motive, then they will call it that.

  11. Kinda cute how they playing this “he had it bad but he was a good guy” card. They never do this for people of color EVER
