So me saying "if I'm wrong I'm wrong" isn't enough for you? Please tell me, in your infinite wisdom, how I should've responded.

Underrated intelligent comment. If we fall victim to Reddit style circle jerking and band wagoning we will just become right wing Reddit.

except when a white man goes on a killing spree and only kills 2 people its still a mass shooting to the leftist media. that is why we call this a mass shooting so that the normies hear their own words being misused and they also wonder why the media did not report the mass shooting of 3 people.

Yeah three people is stupid eh? Well in some places it only takes 3 to be categorized as a mass shooting. They include police officers and the perpetrator's death/injuries into the total, also they don't even need to die by all accounts, just be injured. So that means nobody needs to be shot besides cops and the bad guys for it to be a mass shooting by FBI standards. Why is this a problem? Gangs. If three black dudes engage one police officer and they're all shot, but none die, that's a "mass shooting." You can bet your bottom dollar what happened in IL was classified as a mass shooting.

To clarify, this is how you get "1,000 ass shootings last year!" headlines while more conservative sources would say there was less than a hundred.
