1. Didn't take them any time to

make this the next big thing, did it? The police are going to link everything back to the police shootings now. They'll have star-studded extravaganzas to honor our brave men (and women) in blue. Make me fucking gag.

5. This happened Thursday morning - before Dallas, so not a 'copy cat'

In this report, the TBI are saying it's 'possible', rather than definite:

Investigators spoke with Scott Friday morning. Preliminary findings indicate Scott may have targeted people and officers after being troubled by recent events involving black people and law enforcement officers in other parts of the country.

The TBI says it is aware that other media outlets are reporting that white people were targeted in this shooting, but the TBI told News Channel 11 it not willing to go that far.
