No Photos?

Isn't it strange that no photos have been published yet of either the shooter or the victims of the Colorado Springs shooting?

by Anonymousreply 66November 25, 2022 3:58 PM

The whole thing is strange- and weirdly on the nose for current media narratives.

But it's important not to be too cynical.

Colorado Springs is a military encampment also full of military and compatriot retirees and other right-wing creeps.

Not associated with the massacre, but that's the locale.

Anderson Lee Aldrich is the 22-year-old suspect accused of perpetrating a mass shooting at Club Q, a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The November 19, 2022, attack left five dead and 19 injured, including 17 who suffered gunshot wounds, police said.

Heavy has confirmed that Aldrich is the grandson of outgoing California Republican State Assemblymember Randy Voepel, the former mayor of Santee, California. Voepel represents the 71st District in the San Diego area.

There were calls to expel Voepel from the state Assembly after he made comments comparing the January 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol to the Revolutionary War. Aldrich’s mother, Laura Voepel, has written posts praising Randy Voepel on Facebook and confirming he is her father.

The suspect fired from a moving vehicle into the restaurant. At least one round was fired from the suspect’s handgun. The motive or target is unknown, Palo Alto police reported in a tweet at around 5:14 p.m.

The politician, who has represented the 71st District since 2016, was assailed last year when he compared the Jan. 6 insurrection to the American Revolutionary War.

“This is Lexington and Concord. First shots fired against tyranny,” he told the Union-Tribune three days after the riot. “Tyranny will follow in the aftermath of the Biden swear-in on January 20th.”

I wondered if all the "there are no photos" lies were about establishing a false flag conspiracy, and r35's screen grab proves it.

It makes you wonder just how screwed up the people are who believe all this Q stuff. There must be three dozen events that are all "false flags" in their little conspiracy world, and eventually you'd think lugging around that enormous stack of lies would make even the most delusional person start to question everything.

I heard a report about the two bar patrons who subdued the morbidly obese shooter. One is a man who served in Afghanistan pistol-whipped fatty with his own handgun while a drag queen stomped on him with her high heels. They completely kicked his ass. I’d assume there’s no mugshot because he’s in the hospital and his face is a swollen, bloody mess, and his families political connections probably gave him a good lawyer who will keep the press at bay.

The family hired a top-notch lawyer for sure.

I’m wondering why there aren’t more and better photos and info about the perpetrator as well. There’s the eight year old group photo from when he was 14 and the blurry ring doorbell footage mostly from behind. Seriously, no photos or more info in this online media age? If he was arrested last year, where is his mug shot from then? Nothing on social media of him? There seem to be no stories surfacing from his high school classmates or people who knew him either? Was he home schooled and literally kept in his mom’s basement or attic hidden away? It’s weird how off the radar he seems to be.

Years before he allegedly walked into a Colorado LGBTQ bar with an assault-style rifle, the man now known as Anderson Lee Aldrich had a different name, and a tumultuous past.

Until age 15, he was known as Nicholas Brink, living in San Antonio, public records show.

His parents separated when he was a toddler, and when he was 12, his mother, Laura Voepel, was arrested for suspected arson, according to court documents.

She was later found guilty of a lesser offense in connection with the same incident.

At age 15, he became the target of a particularly vicious bout of online bullying in which insulting accusations were posted to a website, along with his name, photos and online aliases, according to a review of the site by The Washington Post. A

t some point, a YouTube account was created under his name, featuring a crude, profanity-laden animation under the title, “Asian homosexual gets molested.”

For unstated reasons, just before his 16th birthday, the young man petitioned a Texas court — with two of his grandparents’ names on the document — to legally change his entire name. His mother’s name did not appear on the petition.

Nicholas F. Brink became Anderson Lee Aldrich, who, at age 22, would gain infamy as the suspected shooter accused of killing at least five people and wounding 18 others inside the Colorado Springs bar known as Club Q. The reasons behind the choice of the new name were unclear.

Whether the events of Aldrich’s childhood had any bearing on Saturday’s horrific violence is unknown.

But Aldrich’s earlier existence as Nicholas Brink, reported for the first time, offers possible answers to several key mysteries surrounding the suspected gunman.

Public records and databases were oddly silent about Aldrich for the first two decades of his life.

In June 2021, Aldrich was arrested for an alleged bomb threat, one that prompted a partial evacuation of the Colorado Springs neighborhood where his mother lived at the time.

He was charged with kidnapping and felony menacing, but was never prosecuted, for reasons that remain unclear.

No bomb was ever found.

Despite his run-in with the law, some 17 months later, Aldrich was in possession of at least one weapon, a long gun, which he allegedly used in targeting customers and employees inside a nightclub long seen as a safe haven for the city’s gay and lesbian communities.

It is weird OP. I agree and wonder the same.

Guy changes his name from Nicholas brink to Anderson Aldrich at age 22. Why? And why didn't the media talk about this.

He is the grandson of a magat lawmaker. Why didn't the media talk about this, with glaring headlines?

Why hasn't the magat grandfather been interviewed about his position on gun violence and his grandson.

Obviously Anderson is a closet case. Why isn't the media talking about this? And what is his grandfather's position on gay rights? It's relevant.

And yeah, OP no pictures. Odd. Obviously the politically connected family kept his face out of the press. So the grandfather and other maggots in the family need to be questioned.
