A tweet from the account @K_H_O00 praised Mercer’s shooting and appeared to take credit for the terrorist group, but it was later deleted by Twitter. This would not be the first time that ISIS sympathizers have tried to take credit for an American massacre.

    These are the worst shootings in U.S. history:
    Michigan Bath School Disaster – 1927
    In 1927, Andrew Philip Kehoe, a farmer, went on a rampage in Michigan, killing 44 and injuring 58 people. He detonated a series of explosives around Bath Township, Michigan, including near an elementary school with children ages 7 through 12. He detonated dynamite during a struggle with the superintendent, killing himself in the process.
    Virginia Tech Shooting – 2007
    The Virginia Tech shooting that killed 37 people and wounded 17 others still remains one of the worst in U.S. history. The terrible crime took place on April 16, 2007 at Virginia Tech university.
    Sandy Hook Elementary – 2012
    The elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, killed 20 children and six staff on December 14, 2012. The video and photos of children being evacuated from the school still haunt people today and leave many wondering why anyone would have done such a crime.
    University of Texas Shooting – 1966
    On August 1, 1966, Charles Whitman first murdered his wife and mother, and then killed 14 people and injured 32 others at the University of Texas at Austin. The shooter was hard to take out because he did the shootings from the university’s clock tower.
    Umpqua Community College – 2015
    The horrific shooting at Umpqua Community College has left 13 people dead, including the gunman, and more than 20 injured.
    Columbine Massacre – 1999
    The Columbine high school massacre occurred on April 20, 1999, killing 12 students, 1 teacher, and injuring 21 in Columbine, Colorado. The massacre sparked a debate on gun control and violence in video games. The shooters had also planted bombs and other explosive devices around the school.
    Red Lake Senior High School – 2005
    On March 21, 2005, a shooter targeted Red Lake Senior High School in Red Lake, Minnesota on an Indian reservation. Seven people were killed, after the shooter killed his grandfather and his grandfather’s companion. Five people were injured.
    Okios University – 2012
    On April 2, 2012, a Korean Christian college, Oikos University, in Oakland, California, was the site of a terrible mass shooting that left seven dead. A former student who was angry at being expelled was the shooter.

    regon Mass Shooter On Terror List Obama Refused To Take From Russia
    Posted by EU Times on Oct 2nd, 2015

    The Federal Security Services (FSB) is reporting today that an American black-Islamist terror suspect, who yesterday committed an act of mass murder in the State of Oregon (United States), had been included on a list of 87,000 “known/suspected” Islamic terrorists that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL) refused last month to accept from the Federation due to its not being “politically viable in the present atmosphere”.
    According to this report, the black-Islamist terrorist who committed this act of terror, Chris Harper Mercer, had previously been indentified by electronic intelligence specialists within the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) as being an Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) adherent after he had attempted to gain passage to Syria via Turkey during the first week of September, 2015.
    By the Obama regime refusing to accept this terror list from the Federation, this report continues, Mercer was able to accomplish his terror act when yesterday he killed 9 people and wounded 7 others at the Umpqua Community College prior to his being shot and killed by local US police forces.

    Most critical to note about this FSB report is that where it ends, the mysterious, and hugely read, Russian publication Reedus (Ridus.ru) continues—and to fully understand this information one must note that Russian intelligence agencies (SVR/FSB) frequently use Reedus to put information into the public sphere that otherwise would have serious international consequences should the government be found to be behind it—thus giving Reedus its current status known as “a Kremlin resource” and an “agency of Orthodox journalism”. [Русский]
    And the information relating to the black-Islamist terrorist Mercer “leaked” into Reedus by the SVR/FSB is, to say the least, shocking and disturbing–including that immediately after the Oregon mass shooting, his Internet personal profile was changed from his true identity as an ISIS/ISIL terror supporter to one of his being a “white conservative Republican”. [Русский]

    Also important to be noted was Mercer’s association with the ISIS/ISIL terrorist Mahmoud Ali Ehsani, who is banned in Russia [Русский], and was one of only two of Mercer’s MySpace “friends” and who praises the Islamic State, calls for the killing of Jews and glorifies in pictures on his MySpace page his rapture of these terrorists.

    With the true knowledge of Mercer being known as the black-Islamic terrorist he truly was, information which the Obama regime refused to accept from Russia, his mass terror act in identifying and killing Christians becomes immediately understandable.
    As to why the Obama regime and their propaganda media lapdogs are disguising the truth from the American people about this horrific act of Islamic terror against them, especially to the families of the dead and wounded, it is not known—but shouldn’t really surprise anyone as that government has been nothing but a mountain of lies for years.

Both are non-Muslim, and therefore, our media and political leadership are reluctant to place them in the terrorist category. In our modern world, “terrorist” is a racially coded word we have reserved primarily for describing Muslims engaged in acts of violence. We are quick to label violence as terrorism the moment we learn that the perpetrator is Muslim, yet we immediately stop short when a non-Muslim commits the same act of violence. Simran Jeet Singh is (sikh) assistant professor of religion at Trinity University in San Antonio

    On October 1, 2015, a mass shooting took place at Umpqua Community College, located near Roseburg, Oregon, United States. Christopher Harper-Mercer, a 26-year-old student, fatally shot nine people and injured nine others on the campus. He killed himself following an exchange of gunfire with responding police officers.

    Contents

    Shooting

    At 10:38 a.m. PDT, the first 9-1-1 call was made from Snyder Hall on the school campus reporting gunfire. Students reported that the shooting began in Classroom 15, where English and writing classes are conducted.[4][5]
    Harper-Mercer, who was a student in the writing class, entered the room and fired a shot to the back of the room.[6] Some witnesses said he then forced fellow students to the center of the classroom. He deliberately spared one student's life so that student could deliver a package from him to police before he opened fire on the other students. He forced this student to sit at the back of the classroom and watch as he continued shooting with twohandguns.[7][8][8][9][10]
    He first shot the assistant English professor at point-blank range. He allegedly asked two students for their religion, shooting them after they gave him a response.[6][11] Other witnesses said he asked if students were Christians, mocking those who replied in the affirmative that they would go to heaven as he shot them.[a] Some students were shot multiple times;[14][15] one woman was struck several times in the stomach while trying to close a classroom door.[16] One witness said he made a woman beg for her life before shooting her, shot another woman when she tried to reason with him,[17] and shot a third woman in the leg after she tried to defend herself with a desk.[11] One victim, Sarena Dawn Moore, was killed while trying to climb back into a wheelchair at his orders.[6][18]
    The first responding officers arrived at the scene at 10:44, six minutes after the first 9-1-1 call was received. Two minutes later, Harper-Mercer reloaded his handguns, leaned out of the classroom, and fired at two plainclothes detectives on two occasions. They fired three shots in return, hitting him once in the right side. After two minutes of shooting, Harper-Mercer went back into the classroom and killed himself.[6][8][19][20] None of the officers were injured.[2][3][21]

    Aftermath

    Following the shooting, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agents launched a campus-wide search for explosives. Six firearms were recovered from the crime scene:[22] five handguns and one long gun.[23][24][25] The long gun was not fired during the incident.[26] Harper-Mercer also had a flak jacket and "enough ammunition for a prolonged gunfight".[27][28]Police said they found eight other firearms at his apartment, and that all of the weapons were purchased legally by him or members of his family.[20][29]

    Victims

    Fatalities

    Eight students and an assistant professor were killed by Harper-Mercer during the shooting. Of the nine killed, eight died at the scene and the ninth died after being taken to Mercy Medical Center. They were identified as:[30][31]
    • Lucero Alcaraz, 19
    • Treven Taylor Anspach, 20
    • Rebecka Ann Carnes, 18[32]
    • Quinn Glen Cooper, 18
    • Kim Saltmarsh Dietz, 59
    • Lucas Eibel, 18
    • Jason Dale Johnson, 33
    • Lawrence Levine, 67 (assistant professor)[33]
    • Sarena Dawn Moore, 44

    Injured

    Nine people were injured,[3][31] some with multiple gunshot wounds. They were all taken to Mercy Medical Center for treatment. Three were later transferred to PeaceHealth Sacred Heart Hospital in Springfield.[30][34][35]
    According to a witness, Chris Mintz, a U.S. Army veteran who was studying fitness training at the college,[36] ran to the library, where he began pulling alarms and telling people to run away.[37] He then ran into the building where the shooting was taking place and attempted to block Harper-Mercer from moving out of Classroom 15. Mintz was shot three times while standing and another four times while on the floor, but survived. At a press conference held on October 3, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin thanked Mintz for his actions.[38] To help pay for his medical bills, Mintz's family set up a GoFundMe account. It received more than US$650,000 in donations by the end of the day.[39]

    Perpetrator

    Christopher Sean Harper-Mercer[30] (July 26, 1989 – October 1, 2015) was identified as the shooter.[40] He was enrolled in the introductory composition class where he shot several fellow students.[30]
    He was born in Los Angeles County, California, and lived with his mother during the separation and divorce of his parents, who agreed to shared legal custody. Harper-Mercer continued to live with his mother and moved with her to Oregon for her work.[41]His father had not seen him for about two years following his son's move out of state.[42][43][44]
    Harper-Mercer joined the U.S. Army in 2008, but was discharged after five weeks for his failure to meet the "minimum administrative standards" of basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.[30][45] Officials linked to the investigation said that he was discharged as the result of a suicide attempt, but Army officials declined to confirm this.[46] In 2009, he graduated from Switzer Learning Center, a school for teenagers with learning disabilities or emotional issues.[20][47] He lived with a protective mother[48] who tried to shield him from various perceived annoyances, some of them minor, in their neighborhood in Torrance, California.[45] He and his mother moved to Winchester, Oregon in 2013 after she received a job there.[45][49][50] There were fourteen legally purchased weapons in the house, and Harper-Mercer's mother wrote online that she always kept full magazines in Glock pistols and an AR-15 rifle in the house.[51] The two often spent time together at shooting ranges but the son was otherwise extremely isolated.[52]
    Harper-Mercer maintained several Internet accounts, including one in which he described himself as mixed race.[53][54][b] Media reports said he had an email address linked to an account on a BitTorrent website, where he uploaded a documentary on theSandy Hook Elementary School shooting.[57][58] According to the Los Angeles Times, unnamed law enforcement sources said he was a "hate-filled" man with antireligious and white supremacist leanings, and with long-term mental health issues.[59]Neighbors and acquaintances described him as "odd" and "skittish". One neighbor said he would "sit by himself in the dark in the balcony with this little light", while another said "his demeanor, the way he moved, always looking around, I got a bad vibe from him."[15]
    On the day of the shooting, Harper-Mercer gave a survivor several papers containing numerous writings showing he had studied mass killings, including the 2014 killing spree at Isla Vista, California.[60] The papers, some writings on a USB flash drive, expressed his sexual frustration as a virgin, animosity toward black men, and a lack of fulfillment in his isolated life.[61][62][63] In these papers, Harper-Mercer said "Other people think I'm crazy, but I'm not. I'm the sane one,"[64] and that he would be "welcomed in Hell and embraced by the devil."[65]

    Video (12:44): President Obama delivers a statement on the shooting[66]
    U.S. President Barack Obama said that "thoughts and prayers [do] not capture the heartache and grief and anger that we should feel, and it does nothing to prevent this carnage from being inflicted some place else in America next week or a couple months from now."[66] He ordered the US flag to be flown at half staff in memory of the victims the day after the shootings. Oregon Governor Kate Brown said she was heartbroken by the events and that she would immediately travel to Roseburg. The American Association of Community Colleges and the Association of Community College Trusteesissued a joint statement, calling the shooting a tragedy and expressing their commitment to on-campus safety.[67]
    Sheriff John Hanlin of Douglas County said he would not "name the shooter ... I will not give him credit for this horrific act of cowardice. Media will get the name confirmed in time ... but you will never hear us use it."[14][c]
    On October 5, the White House announced that Obama would continue to take more executive action on the subject of gun control.[70] On October 9, he visited Roseburg to meet privately with the families of the victims, as part of an already planned trip to the West Coast.[71][72][73]

    3. Jump up^ The practice of withholding a perpetrator's name is controversial. The Associated Press cited a recent study suggesting that copycat crimes were more likely to happen within an average of 13 days following significant press coverage of a mass shooting, while noting that criminologists and ethicists say withholding names could make it more difficult to track patterns of behavior and prevent future acts of violence.[68][69]

    ♦ If you look at the profile of Mahmoud Ali Ehsani (aka: ” Dick_hard_like_a_pistol ” ) what you find is a propensity toward Islamic Extremism and Jihad.  Here’s a sample:

    While it is difficult to determine the timeline of the relationship; the possibility remains that Chris Harper-Mercer may have been recruited and radicalized.   More research needed.
    ♦ There is also a Chris Harper-Mercer who held a profile on a Dating Website “Spiritual Passions”  (Bow-Chicka-Wow-Wow) Under the alias ” IRONCROSS45 ” : (LINK)

    However, WARNING – this profile looks to be recently constructed and may be a spoof by the 4Chan website people who are trolling the storyline, angry about the media pointing fingers at the prior story on their site: ( The profile appears edited post death – SEE HERE   So don’t necessarily trust the content

    ♦ We frequently see the Black Lives Matter (BLM), F*ck The Police (FtP) and race-based social media (FyF), intermixed with Islamic extremist ideology and Jihad. (Examples Valdosta State and Eric Sheppard Jr)  So it’s no surprise to see Mercer engaged with BLM and hatred toward white People.  Particularly given his own mixed race.
    ♦ (Via CBS) […]  Posts on an online blog that appears to belong to Mercer reference multiple shootings, including one in Virginia in August that left a television news reporter and cameraman dead. The last upload on the blog was Wednesday. when a documentary about the Newtown shooting was posted.

    In one post on the blog about Vester Flanagan, the man who killed the reporter and cameraman in Virginia, Mercer apparently wrote, “I have noticed that so many people like [Flanagan] are alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are. A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems like the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.” (link)
    Victims tell their family members how the shooter identified his victims:


    Oregon gunman targeted Christians, had Muslim friend who ... Jihad Watch6 hours ago - Roseburg, Oregon (CNN)The gunman who opened fire at Oregon's Umpqua .... NOTE: He was buddies with a mad dog Jihadi moslem. Does having a jihadi friend make Chris Harper Mercer a jihadi? Certainly not, and his dislike for “organized religion” and identification as “not religious” virtually ensures that he was not a Muslim. But his hatred for Christianity and friendship with Mahmoud Ali Ehsani, an open sympathizer with jihad killers, is telling: those who love and hate the same things tend to gravitate to one another, and in this case, what drew these two together may have been a shared hatred for Christianity and love for violence and murder, whether the motivation for that bloodlust be the jihadists’ oft-repeated love for death, or a love for death springing, as in Chris Harper Mercer’s case, from other motivations.
    Oregon Shooting: Umpqua Gunman Chris Harper Mercer — What We Know,” by Cassandra Vinograd, NBC News, October 2, 2015:
    The gunman who shot Christians in the head at a Oregon college after asking for his victims’ faiths appeared to be sympathetic to the predominantly Catholic Irish Republican Army — but also posted online that he was “not religious.”…
    The profile describes “not religious, but spiritual” beliefs and was linked to a group called “doesn’t like organized religion.”
    Survivors of the Umpqua shooting told relatives that Harper Mercer asked people whether they were Christian or not. Anyone who responded “yes” was shot in the head and those who said “other” or didn’t answer were shot elsewhere in the body, said Autumn Vicari, whose brother was in the classroom.
    Yet while mainstream media reports have played up the IRA angle, they have ignored the fact that Chris Harper Mercer had only two friends on MySpace, and one was an Islamic jihadist. From Pamela Geller:
    On his myspace page, Chris Harper-Mercer, 26, posted a photograph of himself holding a rifle, alongside images of masked IRA gunmen and an IRA terrorist video. The IRA and Palestinian terrorism have a long history.
    He has just two friends — a girl and a jihadi. Check out the terror sympathizer’s page — “kill the jews.”
    The media has avoided mentioning this at all.

    Telegraph: Chris Harper-Mercer: Everything we know about the Oregon school gunman on Friday afternoon Shooter encouraged followers to watch grisly images online and posted that the "more people you kill, the more you're in the limelight" left behind a complex web of online identities which offer a possible insight into his personality – or at least a glimpse of the way he wanted to present himself to the world.
    He maintained a myspace page, on which he posted a photograph of himself holding what appears to be a rifle, alongside images of masked IRA gunmen.
    His username on the dating site Spiritual Passions was ironcross45 – a handle often used by far-Right sympathisers in reference to the German military symbol reintroduced by the Nazis.
    He was also linked, via the username Lithium_Love, to a video upload site, where he also posted about Vester Flanagan, the former TV reporter who shot dead two former colleagues live on air.


    Mass shootings in the US Telegraph UK  I have been contacted by an individual who has shared this map of US shootings in 2015 with me via email. To date, there have been 264 shootings, during which 300 people have been killed and 1,040 injured.

    Gunman's father from north-west England

    The gunman has a British father Ian Mercer, who is aged in his mid-50s and from the north-west of England, reports The Telegraph's Tom Morgan.
    The family are believed to have moved to the US in the mid-1990s. Mr Mercer told reporters outside his home he was "as surprised as anyone" at the tragedy.
    He said: "Obviously, it's been a devastating day. Devastating for me and my family. I'm just as shocked as everybody at what happened today.
    "I've just been talking to the police and the FBI. That's all the details I have right now, is what you know already."
    In apparent signs of anti-British feeling, killer Chris Harper-Mercer had posted pictures of articles about the IRA.
    His email address was ironcross45@gmail.com, suggesting he also had sympathies with Nazi Germany.

    The army veteran hero charged gunman shot five times saving others

    An army veteran and student charged at the shooter to save his classmates and was himself shot five times, according to his family.
    Chris Mintz, 30, has undergone surgery after the shootings at Umpqua Community College on Thursday morning.
    Derek Bourgeois told DailyMail.com that his cousin went after the shooter because "there was no way he was going to stand around and watch something this horrific happen".
    "I was told he went after the shooter," Mr Bourgeois, who lives in North Carolina, told the website.
    Despite being shot multiple times, the cousin told the website that no vital organs had been hit. He is now recovering after surgery.
    Mr Mintz joined the army after he graduated high school and was stationed at Fort Lewis in Washington.

    Another witness, 18-year-old Anastasia Boylan, was in a classroom on her fourth day studying at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg when Chris Harper-Mercer entered and shot her professor dead point-blank.
    She told her family that he told his victims to stand up and declare the religion, before telling them: "Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second."
    He then shot his victims, including Anastasia, who told her father she survived by playing dead. As she lay wounded on the ground, Harper-Mercer said, "Hey you, blonde woman." She is now undergoing surgery on her spine.

    A neighbour said Leo has been spending the majority of his time in America with the family since his wife died in 2011.
    On hearing about the Oregon shooting, the neighbour said: "He will be absolutely devastated if his grandson is responsible.
    "After his wife died, he fell apart and he changed. He missed her so much.
    "That's why he goes to America so much, to be with his family. He's so proud of his family and it will destroy him to think something so dreadful has happened."

      Umpqua Community College forshadowed on 4chan shooting leaves multiple injured, fatalities  1 Oct, 2015 20:04

      On Wednesday night, a thread on the message board 4chan was created, with someone posting an image with a gun and writing that foreshadowed the events of the next day with some detail.

      “Some of you guys are alright. Don't go to school tomorrow if you are in the northwest,” the original poster said in his thread. “So long space robots,” he said, referring to users of the /r9k/ sub-board of the site where he posted. “Will post again in am, 10 min countdown. Won't say more to much to prepare.”

      It is not confirmed that the shooter posted the thread, and users of the infamous board responded in various ways, with some being incredulous and others egging him on, perhaps under the impression that the thread was simply an outrageous joke.

      Some users of 4chan are reported to be making fake Twitter accounts to falsely pin the shooting on someone, such as a well-known user of the board going by name “Eggman.”

      4chan is also excited about the fact that the post they think was alluding to the used a Pepe frog meme pic.twitter.com/mFSeDLybzQ
