  1. Wow. I mean, “dare I say it on YouTube”, but HOW IN THE WORLD did his account not get flagged?

    1. What’s his YouTube channel I been looking for it all day Hassan Campbell said dude said he was next, lol I been looking for it.

    2. @Jasiah Hardy It’s been taken down, but it was still up well into the late evening the day of the shooting. I suspect they left it up hoping he would log in so they could track him or something. You didn’t miss much, though. Most of his commentary was pretty incoherent.

    3. Yes he said some disturbing stuff and had a following. I wondered how his videos did not get flagged as well

    4. @John Smith Incoherent? I’d love to judge for myself. I hate that videos and posts from mass shooters get taken down.

  2. I betcha 10 bucks this guy was aiming at the floor. Does he have any injuries to his feet or anything below the knee?

  3. The DA has stated he will not rest until Frank is arrested, booked, and released for good behavior.😜
