Accused El Paso Walmart Shooter Apparently Posted Racist Manifesto Before Attack

Accused El Paso Walmart Shooter Apparently Posted Racist Manifesto Before AttackJOEL ANGEL JUAREZ/Getty ImagesPatrick Crusius has been identified as the suspected gunman who attacked a Walmart store in El Paso, Texas, a senior law-enforcement source told The Daily Beast. Crusius’ identity was first reported by CNN.Crusius apparently foreshadowed the attack online almost an hour beforehand, according to postings reviewed by The Daily Beast. Crusius, 21, is a resident of Allen, Texas, outside Dallas. Police said one person is in custody for the attack. Authorities “ruled out” multiple shooters and said there are no outstanding suspects. Twenty people were killed and scores more injured in the attack, officials said.Mass Shooting at El Paso Walmart; Gunman ‘Started Shooting Everyone, Aisle by Aisle,’ Witness SaysAn eyewitness told The Daily Beast a white man in his twenties, who was dressed in black, opened fire with a rifle in front of the store’s entrance around 11 a.m. The gunman shot one person at point-blank range, the eyewitness said. Surveillance footage captured the gunman entering the store, where another eyewitness said he fired “aisle by aisle.”  El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen, who stopped short of naming the suspect, said that authorities were reviewing a “manifesto.” “Right now we have a manifesto from this individual, that indicates to some degree, it has a nexus to potential hate crime,” Allen said at a Saturday night press conference. He went on to add, however, that authorities were still working to “validate” that it was written by the suspected shooter. Approximately 45 minutes before the first report of gunfire, a user on the forum 8chan announced that they were planning an attack, indicated that they were in Texas, and that they would use an AK-47—similar to the weapon photographed on the gunman—to carry out the attack. The announcement was accompanied by an anti-immigrant manifesto that invoked white supremacist terms to justify violence against Hispanic people. Authorities say three Mexican nationals were among the dead in the attack on the predominantly Hispanic city that borders Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.The same user also uploaded a letter addressed to Crusius from Collin College, dated April 9. The college said after the shooting that Crusius had attended school there until spring 2019. The letter was first reported by Bellingcat, an investigative website.White supremacist shooters sometimes post manifestos or links to other literature, in the hopes that a terror attack will draw attention to the writings. These manifestos are sometimes intended to inspire other acts of violence. The author of the apparent El Paso manifesto claimed to have been inspired by a manifesto written by the white supremacist who allegedly murdered 51 worshippers at a mosque in New Zealand this year. The alleged attacker of a synagogue in Poway, California, earlier this year also cited that manifesto.Hours after the El Paso attack on Saturday, law enforcement blocked off a home in a well-kept neighborhood of brick and stucco homes with manicured lawns in Allen. At the end of a cul-de-sac where FBI and state police had gathered, ATF agents went door-to-door in an attempt to speak with neighbors.One neighbor, who declined to give her name, said she believed Crusius was living with his grandparents. “They’re very good people, they’re very straight people,” she said, adding that she attended church with the pair. —With reporting fron Dan Singer in Allen, TexasRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

‘Fox & Friends’ Host Apparently Believes McDonald’s Workers Make Tips

‘Fox & Friends’ Host Apparently Believes McDonald’s Workers Make TipsReacting to Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) calling for the federal minimum wage to be raised to $ 20 an hour, Fox & Friends host Ainsley Earhardt insisted on Tuesday that minimum wage jobs were meant to give workers a start in the workforce before falsely claiming that fast-food workers supplement their incomes with tips.Following the House of Representatives passing a bill last week that would raise the minimum wage from $ 7.25 to $ 15 per hour, Tlaib said that due to the price of goods and services, the true minimum wage should be “$ 18 to $ 20 an hour at this point.” She also blasted the federally mandated minimum wage for tipped workers, which is currently set at $ 2.13 an hour.Discussing Tlaib’s remarks on Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy seemed genuinely surprised about tipped workers’ wages, saying he “did not realize” that their minimum wage was $ 2.13 an hour before saying Tlaib wants to exponentially increase it. He then used a presidential contender’s campaign to make a point.“However, as we heard from Bernie Sanders in the last 48 hours or so,” Doocy stated. “He will start paying his employees $ 15 an hour, but he will have to cut back their hours because they cannot afford it.”Earhardt chimed in, asserting that small businesses can’t afford minimum wage increases before claiming they would engage in widespread firings in wages went up significantly. Doocy, meanwhile, highlighted Congressional Budget Office estimates that showed there was a chance that increasing the minimum wage could impact unemployment.Co-host Brian Kilmeade then waxed nostalgic about his time as a busboy, saying it was “one of the best jobs” he could have breaking in because “you work hard” and “you get great tips,” adding that any paycheck you get at that point is a bonus. He also had some advice to those not earning enough from one job."If one job doesn’t pay enough, guess what you do, you, you get another job,” he exclaimed. “That’s what you do in your twenties. Having two part-time jobs while going to school is something people have done since the turn of the last century.” Earhardt, meanwhile, piggybacked on Kilmeade’s commentary while adding some questionable “facts” of her own. “Minimum wage job is not meant to be a career—it’s meant to help you get a start,” she said. “We were in high school or college when I was waiting tables. Most of those people, at very fine restaurants, that is their career, but they make tons of money.”She continued: “If you’re working at McDonald’s or a small little restaurant where you're making tips, you are right. If you are nice to the people, you make a lot of money."Needless to say, workers at McDonald’s or other similar fast-food restaurants generally don’t make tips.This isn’t the first time that Earhardt has made an embarrassing on-air gaffe. Last summer, she defended America’s greatness by saying the United States “defeated communist Japan” in World War II.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
