I wasn't aware of the accused Dayton shooter being supposedly on the
"left". I think it strengthens my argument that the increase in mass
shootings is not simply a matter of increase racism and xenophobia; it's
related to the numbing of violence and the lowered levels of empathy
(expressed in class terms as class solidarity) in all layers of society.
And the faux left is not immune from this.
