Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action started out by blaming guns, as in "America gives dangerous people guns..." which she then tries to walk back, well, judge for yourself:

How about a real response to these type incidents which cut down on the number of victims?

"Dr. Eric Dietz, director of Purdue University's Homeland Security Institute, says that their research indicates that a combination of armed officers on campus with concealed carriers in the classroom will reduce casualties in an "active shooter" attack on campus by two-thirds."

Here's two right off the bat. Obama continued to ignore or insinuate that perps were innocent and blame was on society as a whole or the cops involved, or both.

Michael Brown, aka 'the Gentle Giant' attacked police officer Wilson, note that Obama never mentioned the police officer nor whether MB might be guilty of doing something wrong, in fact it sounds like MB was the poor victim of an assault: "The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time ... I know the events of the past few days have prompted strong passions, but as details unfold, I urge everyone in Ferguson, Missouri, and across the country, to remember this young man through reflection and understanding. We should comfort each other and talk with one another in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds. Along with our prayers, that's what Michael and his family, and our broader American community, deserve."

08-11-2014 Eric Holder press release (on the Michael Brown incident): "The shooting incident in Ferguson, Missouri this weekend deserves a fulsome review. In addition to the local investigation already underway, FBI agents from the St. Louis field office, working together with attorneys from the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division and US Attorney's Office, have opened a concurrent, federal inquiry. The federal investigation will supplement, rather than supplant, the inquiry by local authorities. At every step, we will work with the local investigators, who should be prepared to complete a thorough, fair investigation in their own right. I will continue to receive regular updates on this matter in the coming days. Aggressively pursuing investigations such as this is critical for preserving trust between law enforcement and the communities they serve."

Funny, but I didn't see anything from Obama or Holder directed towards officer Wilson, even after the trial was over, such as "Officer Wilson was found innocent after a fair trial where many eye witnesses, along with other evidence, proved that Michael Brown's death was due to his attacking brave Officer Wilson ... "

Here is Obama completely ignoring what actually happened (see court testimony for that): "You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son. Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago. And when you think about why, in the African American community at least, there's a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it's important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn't go away."

This is a listing of 'race riots' under Obama's watch:

#27 Rcade: "If you must protest, try not to embarrass yourself."

Like the fine folks who block other people from going to work ... for days? And shootings too? More than embarrassing, I'd say.

"There were five shooting victims in Seattle, Wash., and one in Portland, Ore. Also, in Portland, rioting occurred as a result of the anti-Trump rally. The result was millions of dollars in damage to businesses, and taxpayer's hard earned money paying for police in riot gear."
