The Alleged Atlanta Shooter’s Church Tried to Disappear From the Internet

 

The Southern Baptist church attended by the alleged Atlanta mass shooter has responded to the tragedy by attempting to disappear from the internet.  

 

After news broke Tuesday that Robert Aaron Long, 21, stood accused of killing eight people, including six Asian women, at massage parlors in the Atlanta area, the Crabapple First Baptist Church’s online presence went dark. Its website went private, and its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts were shuttered.  

 

The church issued a brief statement to media outlets on Wednesday describing its leadership as “heartbroken” for everyone involved. 

 

“We grieve for the victims and their families, and we continue to pray for them,” the statement attributed to elders of Crabapple First Baptist Church read. “Moreover, we are distraught for the Long family and continue to pray for them as well.” 

 

The church didn’t respond to follow-up questions from VICE News about why the web pages had been taken down. Individual elders of the church didn’t answer emailed requests for comment. 

 

Yet the church is unlikely to recede from the spotlight anytime soon, after being thrust into a crisis following Long’s arrest and indictment on eight counts of murder.  

 

Police say Long described himself as a sex addict, and explained his own motivations in terminology that echoed traditional Christian moral prohibitions around sex and temptation. 

 

“He apparently has an issue, what he considers a sex addiction, and sees these locations as something that allows him to go to these places, and it’s a temptation for him that he wanted to eliminate,” Capt. Jay Baker of the Cherokee County sheriff’s department said Wednesday. 

 

Comments by police suggesting the incident was all about sex were criticized by some observers for appearing to shift blame to the victims, and for taking the suspect’s claim that the killing spree wasn’t racially motivated at face value. Police have said they don’t have enough evidence yet to classify the incident as a hate crime, even though most of Long’s victims were Asian women. 

 

He’s believed to have frequented the massage parlors he attacked, police said.

How about a 60 day waiting period for white males under 26 and limits to their guns and ammo?

Or... how about a 26 waiting period for all males under 60?

Anyone else notice the police response and think it seems a bit excessive?  I counted at least 30 cops in full tactical gear.  Multiple armored vehicles.  Like what did they think they are responding to?

The pandemic is nearing it's end, and now the mass shootings are back on schedule.

 

The new American dream is to GTFO

Was just about the post this - its sad that "return to normalcy" means "return to semi-regular mass shootings"

Pandemic, mass shootings...the human race seems intent on population control.

I don't really have any words anymore when these things happen. I just hope that at some point in the next decade we can figure our some sort of gun legislation to combat these senseless massacres. Sadly I doubt it.

hate to say it, but the shooter must be white if they took him in alive


white people make up about 80 percent of the population in bolder, so it’s safe to assume he was white just playing the odds...

So I've seen "person of interest" and "suspect" used, plus he was taken in alive...for a white a guy that killed ten people (an officer included). If it was any other...nevermind, I give up.
