    Well, some people did something. I'm not sure how much credit to give this story.

    Yesterday, the local news said "4 men killed in shootings Friday night" and other stories said things like:

    Bungalow Joe’s owner in disbelief after 3 men killed in 'totally random' shooting at restaurant

    OK, that got zero press that I saw in the Courier-Journal, which seems pretty odd for the biggest public shooting since the NFAC marchers shot themselves a while back, but may they just overlooked that 3 of the 4 shootings were a random psycho walking into a "bar & grill" type restaurant and shooting strangers.

    Then today I start seeing numerous version of this:

    BLM ACTIVIST TARGETS COP BAR, KILLS 3 IN LOUISVILLE

    A Black Lives Matter activist walked into a Louisville bar owned by a retired cop wearing a, “Justice for Breonna Taylor” tshirt and opened fire.
    Michael Rhynes went into a bar known to be owned by a retired cop and started shooting at the people on the outside patio.
    As he was escorted out of the bar by arresting officers he had big smile plastered all over his face.
    Three people died at the bar. One was the father of a young girl, an other the fiancee of the manager and the other was a 48 year old male.
    Two of the individuals died at the bar and the other one was pronounced dead at the local hospital.
    The incident happened just as the bar was getting ready to close up on Friday night around 11:30 pm.

    “A sick deranged individual decided he was going to take three people’s lives. A person walked across the street, looked in my patio walked around the patio, came up to this table right here, and indiscriminately shot three of my customers. One of which was my manager’s fiancé.” - Joe Bishop owner of the bar
    The crime was a racially motivated planned attack against police and yet because the incident doesn't align with the narrative that the media wants us to believe it got very little attention.
    Police are being targeted all across the country, but the media wants you to believe that it's the police who are doing the targeting The men and women in blue who risks their lives every day are now at an even greater risk of not making it home from their shift.


    What I can confirm:
    1. 3 men were shot and killed Friday night at Bungalow Joe's Bar & Grill in Louisville.
    2. The guy arrested was Michael E. Rhynes Jr.
    3. Was he smiling and wearing a Justice fro Breonna Taylor" T-shirt? Well, he's smiling and the T-shirt could easily be a Breonna Taylor shirt:

    No confirmation that Joe Bishop (bar owner) is a retired police officer or that the police frequent Bungalow Joe's. No confirmation that Rhynes is a "BLM activist" (but if that's a Breonna Taylor T-shirt, it's certainly likely).

    Happened a mile from my old house, obviously I know people in the area. My work partner lives closer to there than I did.

    Statement on FB from the bar owner says dude just walked up and put rounds in the victims. No argument, nothing.

    I looked at suspect's FB page and he's a big BLM supporter....

    I'm curious about why he didn't flee the scene. Perhaps it was activist murder and he wanted the publicity? Or did someone detain him?

    this kind of hatred is destroying our lives and must be stopped. who does horrible things like this to strangers? what drugs must they be taking? how did this deranged individual get a firearm in the first place. so many questions.

    Well, I get reports on my desk all the time where folks get their guns stolen overnight from their unlocked vehicles. This is commonplace where I work. So, that's how a ton of firearms end up in the hands of criminals across this country. And serial numbers for these stolen guns? What's that?

    Racially motivated hate crime. Thanks for posting this; can't find such details such as the BT shirt, smiling as he's taken off, etc.

    I figured you might know about the bar or whether Joe Bishop is a retired police officer.

    I just watched a report on this on WLEX 18 and they said "Police say the motive for the shooting is unknown" and never mention that it was a cop bar or that thr shooter was wearing that shirt.

    :rolleyes:

    Literally just saw this on the news. They said they are still looking for a motive. I'm going to guess all 3 victims are white.

    Why waste everybody's time and money, just insert a bullet into his skull and be done with it.

    It is 09/10/2001, our country is at war, and most Americans are oblivious.

    I don't want to jump to any conclusions, but I don't know any white guys named Toreon. But there's a first time for everything.

    I don't know him, but will ask around. I do know that the business did a benefit to help out the very-disabled son of a good friend of mine, so cop or not, he's a good dude.
