Boulder shooter being characterized as a wrestler - why?

Recommended Posts

Horrible tragedy, numerous news stories keep mentioning the shooter ( I won't mention his name because he doesn't deserve fame or notoriety) as a high school wrestler.  I mean, why is that relevant at all?  If he was on the high school chess team or bowling team would they mention that?

Pushing the aggression angle, I guess.

Yes. If you listen to these big stories where younger folks...(enter tragic incident here)....you hear about interests and activities they were in, quite often. This stood out to you, because it’s wrestling.

Don't sweat it.  He went to AWest, so he couldn't have been a real wrestler. 

I was shocked when they revealed his age on the news today.  From his bloody perp walk yesterday, I pegged him at 50.  I bet he has serious mental defects.

The media doesn't want to mention his religion or national origin.  

Even Reddit, which is the 90% hardcore AOC level liberals. (But less useful because even if you disagree with her she’s actually doing something, they just keep getting shocked and outraged about things they should see coming but never do anything)

Are calling that out right now

And let’s be honest...

This is the perfect opportunity for the OP to create yet another ridiculous thread that is designed for a specific purpose…

Damnit, I didn’t look at the author before I responded. F*** ME!  
 

I’m not having a good day.

I'd say its because he reportedly once lost a wrestling match and threatened to "kill everybody."  They're focusing on the violent  threat more than the fact that he was a wrestler per se, IMO. 

The WSJ reported this about his wrestling:

“He was kind of scary to be around,” said Dayton Marvel, a teammate on the wrestling team. Alissa once had an outburst and threatened to kill people during an intra-team match, Marvel said.
“His senior year, during the wrestle-offs to see who makes varsity, he actually lost his match and quit the team and yelled out in the wrestling room that he was like going to kill everybody,” Marvel said. “Nobody believed him. We were just all kind of freaked out by it, but nobody did anything about it.”...
“He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up,” Marvel said. “It was a crazy deal. I just know he was a pretty cool kid until something made him mad, and then whatever made him mad, he went over the edge — way too far.”

Awesome.  I know Dayton!  He is a cool kid, although he is not so much a kid anymore.

Too bad there was not a good guy with a gun, like a police officer

It's too bad - tragic really - that a police officer had to die.  Along with nine other souls.

He was that guy on the team that was already on the edge, and eventually descended into mental illness.  Everyone's probably been around someone like that at some point.  It's too bad that it puts wrestling in somewhat of a bad light.
