As it should be
He's dead obviously which may affect his color, but he looks like he hadn't seen the sun for years
He was pretty pale anyways. I don't know how to link an imgur, but googling his photo, he's really pale.
Ya he is pale, but I think pale in an unhealthy way. Like he never went outside and had a poor diet.
Sounds about right, from what I've heard. I lived in the neighbouring town for 5 or so years, this happened after I moved away. I've heard he was creepy, and was a loser. Then again, small town gossip isn't always true, but in this case, it probably is.
I thought his sunglasses were holes in his head💀
Gun looks jammed, ol'boy using those ETS magazines.
It was probably limp-wristing that caused it to jam.
The same thing happened multiple times to Adam Lanza.
How would limp-wristing the gun cause a jam?
It’s technically a failure to cycle, as opposed to a jam, which is what people usually say.
If the user does not hold the firearm firmly enough, the slide doesn’t function efficiently, meaning that the spent cartridge gets partially ejected and lodged in the ejection port (stove piping).
Or, there is a failure to feed, where the spent cartridge is ejected, but the slide does not travel forward to its original position, meaning that a round isn’t chambered.
When a gunshot goes off recoil forces are parted to the gun, however the slide is sitting on a set of rails and is allowed to move independently of the rest of the firearm as long as it can overcome the pressure of the spring that pushes it back forward. If you were to put a pistol down on a table and then it went off, basically the entire gun is going to go flying backwards from recoil at the same speed, as nothing is acting to hold the frame from moving, they'll both move at the same time and the slide most likely won't even begin to unlock.
Now, when you're holding a handgun firmly you are actually trapping that frame and preventing it from moving, so that the slide can utilize as much of that energy as possible and is also able to move along the rails without having to try and outpace the frame so that it can move all the way backwards, letting the fired casing eject and then having enough distance to gain the necessary inertia while returning forward to both strip the next round off the magazine and fully feed it into the chamber.
When you "limp-wrist" a gun you're essentially not holding it tight enough, and the frame is either able to move in your grip, or your entire hands are allowed to move too much with the handgun. This causes that frame to use up some of the energy from the recoil as well as the slide to lose some of that relative velocity. Limp wrist it enough and the slide won't go back far enough to let the round eject properly.
Common malfunctions caused by limp wristing include:
complete failure to extract/eject
only being able to partially eject before the slide starts closing again
the slide moving back enough to allow it to eject but not far enough back to let the next round pop up, causing it to chamber on nothing (this one is pretty design dependent on if it even happen)
The slide not moving far enough back to allow the momentum needed to properly strip a round from the magazine, push it up the feed ramp and into the chamber completely. This one is probably the most common limp wrist malfunction as it's the one closest to the point of you having held it tight enough
Now, you might ask, why would they make the balance of spring pressure and weight so close that this can even happen? Well, you need enough weight in the slide so that the slide doesn't begin to move until well after the pressure inside the chamber starts to drop, or else you get all kinds of nasty and dangerous problems. You also need a spring strong enough that it'll never have issues feeding rounds in normal operation. Additionally, the faster you allow that slide to come back at you the harder it'll hit its end up travel, which itself is a pretty big recoil inducing event and is one of the biggest causes of what people call "muzzle flip." You want that slide to be moving back fast enough for proper function, but you also want that spring taking out a lot of the energy as it moves back, so that when it's hit the end of its movement that spring has absorbed as much recoil energy as possible.
And the reason that we always see malfunctions happen in mass killing/shooting events, as well as even in things like police officer body cam footage? Most of these people (yes including the police) have very, very minimal firearms experience and it's not second nature for them to hold the gun tight enough (or even correctly at all) to ensure maximum reliability.
Additionally, holding the gun tighter than necessary for operation is also pretty important for recoil control. The tighter that you hold that gun the less likely it is to slip or move at all in your grip and instead that force is transferred into and absorbed by your body. I used to shoot pistols competitively, and the very first part of proper recoil control is holding the gun correctly, and squeezing as hard as possible without going so hard that you start shaking. I've demonstrated this to a bunch of people I've taken out shooting before by holding my hands over theirs on a pistol like we're making ~~sweet love~~ pottery with Patrick Swayze, and they thought I was trying to break their bones.
Anyways, thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
This was very interesting!
Here’s a pretty good explanation.
Hm, yeah maybe. Never thought of that, those mags are trash though.
It happens to the many of handgun suicides to the head because the mind goes unconcious immediately so the suicide victim´s hand obviously isn´t gripping tight enough so it causes the limp wrist.
I would say the cops cleared the gun before taking photos of the scene
You’re wrong. That’s rarely - if ever - done.
The most they’ll ever do is move the weapon away from the perpetrator or the perpetrators body, but they likely didn’t do that, either, in this case.
I just think it's weird they would leave a loaded gun on the ground while they clear a building and wait for a photographer to come while potential secondary shooters may be at large
There would have been multiple officers on the body at all times, not much risk
That makes more sense
POS. Killed two innocent teens because he wasn't happy with his life. I'd much rather he get help or just kill himself, rather than Casey and Paco. They didn't deserve to die like that.
Where the hell do you people find these photos?
/u/skeletor_thagawd FOIA'd them a few months back
Bruh those shoes
A loser who shot up Aztec high school because he was unhappy with his life.
He looks very young for his age imo.
Trolling For Aztec.
