Why apologists for the murdering mass shooter?

azcentral comments:
Ken Rineer Yes, it could have been Steven that was beaten to a pulp, putting him in intensive care, or worse, beaten to death. Why did these four fraternity members pick a fight with Steven and his friends? Unfortunately one is dead and four were injured. The four injured will have an opportunity to think twice before picking a fight. We do not know yet how much of a threat the 4 attackers posed to the group walking, did they pose enough of a danger for Steven to fear for his life? Those details will surely come out as the prosecution progresses. - likes Rand Paul, Snowden Gun Owners of Arizona

Steve Miller · Glendale, Arizona Having been in a fraternity pledge environment many years ago, it's not hard to imagine what would bring a "level-headed" freshman to fire several shots at four juniors from a rival fraternity. I can still remember the animosity between rival houses and the escalation of tensions during Pledge Week. I don't know the circumstances of this incident (as does anyone else other than the actors), but the "victims" are probably not without blame as are the brothers of the shooter.

nydailynews Why was this kid punched and chased? You can see wounds on his face in his mugshot. Why would a kid who's never gotten in trouble, by all accounts a good kid, feel it was necessary to get a gun while being chased by other students? Were there other incidents with this area of students, drinking, bullying, fighting other students, what is the past history? Don't get me wrong, it's horrible what happened, these are all just kids, but I want to hear all testimony.

They're holding a vigil for a dude like he's some sort of angel. He and a bunch of frat douches approached Jones and started a fight with him...guess what, you don't start none, won't be none. Was it stupid for Jones to go back and start shooting and will he pay for it, absolutely but again, these frat douches don't go acting like tough guys and everyone is enjoying the weekend. BTW, this same scenario played out on the streets of NY, Chicago,LA and Detroit 100x since this went down in Arizona but I guess since it's not privileged white kids there's nothing to report...

Ann Kirkpatrick, D-Ariz., immediately issued statements on the tragedy. As more details emerged, it appeared the early-morning shooting that left one NAU student dead and three others wounded on Friday had not been a random massacre like other recent incidents. shooting lacked the details that have become tragically expected elsewhere: indications of mental illness or extremist indoctrination, targeting based on ideology or a crazed manifesto. 1. not a lot of deaths 2.  deadly shooting comes at a time when fraternities have been taking heat in Arizona and across the country. 4. r that carrying the weapon used onto campus was a violation of university rules.
