You Don’t Say…Highland Park Shooter Was Known to Law Enforcement by Matt Vespa for Town Hall
GNN Note – As this was unfolding on the TV yesterday I turned to my wife and point out a couple of different situations that pointed toward yet another false flag operation and explained to her this was going to increase over the next two months as the democrats are desperate to take our guns and if a few people have to die…oh well. / END
He was known to law enforcement. How many times are we going to hear that regarding a mass shooting? He had mental health problems going back to middle school. He declined additional resources to seek help as his parents chose to homeschool him. He had a reported social media presence—and it was highly disturbing. Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III was arrested on July 4 after he allegedly opened fire on an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois, an affluent Chicago suburb. Crimo killed six people and wounded 38 others (via NBC News):
Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III, the person of interest identified by police after Monday’s shooting in a Chicago suburb that killed six people and wounded 38 others, left a long trail of tributes to mass shootings and public killings on social media platforms, according to numerous profiles that appear to belong to him.
Crimo performed as a rapper who went by the name “Awake,” whose recent music videos included depictions of mass murder.
Crimo’s most recent video posted to YouTube showed him in the aftermath of a school shooting. It ends with Crimo draping himself in an American flag. Another music video showed a cartoon depiction of a man wearing a shirt with his YouTube channel’s logo on it, holding a long gun and being shot by police.
The YouTube account that hosted his videos, which had previously been accessible to the public, was unavailable Monday night.
Crimo had his own Discord server, where fans and people who knew him would chat. The community featured a politics board filled with nihilistic political memes. The most recent post before the shooting, which was posted in March, was a picture of Budd Dwyer, the Pennsylvania state treasurer who shot and killed himself on live television in the late 1980s, along with the caption “I wish politicians still gave speeches like this.”
