    You're right, and my (since edited) post was improperly worded.

    I don’t have Twitter, but I did see this. I can’t validate it, but can’t see why someone would take the time to say this either, if it weren’t true. I know some here are probably lighting candles, performing rituals and praying that it’s true to satisfy their political obsessions, but he may have just been a fucking nut, period.

    Like I said... he was a dipshit that glommed onto radical ideologies to set himself apart in a confused attempt to forge some sort of identity.
    My nephew went through the same shit... low-fi rapping... tattoos/piercings... just dumb shit.

    In an uncharacteristically balanced article Tuesday, the Washington Post reported that “it is not clear from his online postings that he was a supporter of Trump or any other political party or candidate.”

    “He was immersed in fringe internet culture. But nothing uncovered so far suggests a clear political or ideological motive,” said Emerson T. Brooking, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab.

    Some conservatives have surmised that Crimo was mocking Trump supporters, as his activity on Twitter suggests a decidedly left-ward slant.

    As many have noted, Crimo sports a rose tattoo on his neck. The rose is a symbol of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA).

    On the other hand, his videos include a symbol that is similar to one used by Suomen Sisu, a far-right Finnish organization.

    According to Brizes, his former friend is neither left nor right—just crazy.

    “I knew awake the rapper/ Robert / Bobby Crimo. We used to make music together around 2015-18,” Brizes wrote on Twitter Monday night. “He’s not antifa, he’s not some maga overlord. I know that shit sounds really interesting. But it’s not the truth. He was an isolated stoner who completely lost touch with reality.”

    On his website, Brizes writes that he is an “artist and student at Otis College of Art and Design” who works “in photo and video.”

    A cursory look at the Brizes’ Twitter account shows him to be left-of center politically—as someone who supports abortion rights, and gun control. He posted two photos and some text messages as proof that he knows Crimo.

    Brizes said Crimo tended to coopt “aesthetics from the left and right” without actually believing in any of those things.

    “I think he was lost,” he wrote. “Gravitated towards aesthetics he found interesting. Maybe things can change in a couple of years, but he was never a white nationalist. And was never a leftist.”

    Brizes stressed that he was appalled by his former friend’s actions.

    “What he did was awful and I hope he rots,” he wrote. “But to say he was an antifa shooter, or a qanon supporter or whatever. It’s bullshit.”

    The student also shot down the theory that Crimo was a subject in a CIA brainwashing program like MKUltra.

    “He was not mkultra’d. He liked ARGs [alternate reality games] and thought it was cool,” Brizes explained. “I know leftist twitter and trump stan twitter want to make him into whatever type of person they want to vilify but he isn’t that.”

    He argued that Crimo’s “weird ass” videos tell the real story about his state of mind.

    “Anybody that knew him could attest to that. In his last years he was making some weird ass videos. But like, yeah, no sane person does what he does. There’s nothing deeper to it. Crazy being crazy,” Brizes wrote.

    Even though Highland Park’s municipal government banned assault-style guns within city limits in 2013, Covelli said Crimo managed to legally obtain two rifles – including one styled after an AR-15 – and at least three other guns in the general Chicago area, many parts of which do not enforce such restrictions.

    What exactly is a rifle "styled after an AR-15?"

    You know what blows my mind? I can metion something in passing to my mife about tick repellent or a type of fishing lure and get 25 targeted ads on either but this guy makes these public posts and nothing is flagged.

    "He had apparently planned the attack on the Fourth of July parade for weeks and allegedly posted dozens of videos with ominous songs showing images of himself or cartoon figures holding rifles with threatening messages, including one reading: “Everything has led up to this. Nothing can stop me, even myself.”"

    Posting this shit online is akin to standing in the middle of your town with a sign reading "I'm going to kill people." How the fuck does that not get noticed?

    I have no problem with social media being monitored and policed. Shit, If you quoted some rap lyrics from 10 years ago that had the word "nigga" in it you could be cancelled in a heartbeat. But post shit saying you are going to murder a bunch of people and nothing happens. WTF?

    The only thing I can think, is what monitors is primed for ads/$. That may change though. It’s another thing these assholes have in common. They like to use social media document their downfall, and lay out their plans. Why not have it monitor that extreme stuff.

    That age group communicates more online than they do in person. It’s not far off

    You are just so clueless.

    Did we trade that first rounder for Garoppolo yet?

    So let me get this straight….

    The only country in the civilized world who can’t give their citizens healthcare…. A country who can’t enact something as simple as a federal background check….

    A country who entered a war on false pretenses, a war we are still in 50 years later, a war that has cost us trillions of dollars (the war on drugs),

    a country that guarantees its citizens the freedom of speech…. Is going to monitor the entire internet, investigate people who make threats in a timely fashion and then what?

    What’s the charge? Threats? Freedom of speech. Lots of guns? Right (for a well regulated militia) to bear arms.

    Re ads: I assume you don’t surf the web on TOR, use Signal for texting, and discourse for fun just like people planning a shooting aren’t on insta tagging the gun shop or google searching “how to shoot up a school”

    You’re idea of policing the internet (and expecting any measurable results) is as impractical as trading for Jimmy G.

    You know we’ve jumped the shark when policing the internet, to some, is a better idea than treating a gun like a car ie registrations, licenses, required training, testing of skills and knowledge before acquiring a license, insurance etc etc.

    You do realize that people that have made threats on the internet, usually to politicians, are visited by FBI field officers.

    It happens all the time.

    The internet is highly policed. Who they protect are the same as in the real world... the elite.

    I think we all agree on stricter gun policy. The part about policing the internet, wouldn’t be the sole answer. But if some of these sites can put people in Facebook jail for political comments, put up red flags when someone threatens someone “important”, then I’m sure there’s a way it can be another tool in the tool box. This guy put up enough violent warning on YouTube , where it wouldn’t be unreasonable for the site to take notice.
