A Buffalo, New York “Tops” grocery store was the scene of a mass shooting on Saturday, May 14th at 2:30pm. 18-year-old Payton Gendron has been arrested for shooting at least 13 people, killing ten. The shooting was racially motivated with most, if not all, victims being black. The shooter is white. Gendron came from 200 miles east and southeast of Buffalo in Broome County, New York. A manifesto from the shooter exists online where Gendron explains his motives and political leanings. He does not identify as conservative and has previously identified as a communist. Gendron now places himself in the category of “authoritarian left”. The media, however, will run with whatever narrative makes the most sense to them from a financial and ideological perspective.
