On Monday, a gunman opened fire on a country music festival from his Las Vegas hotel room. The massacre left 59 people dead and more than 500 injured, making this the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. News outlets have covered the story extensively, and seem to be having trouble coming up with words to describe the indescribable.
Snapping is something a person does when they dent the new car type thing. We all snap. This cat systematically mass murdered. No snap.— Lori (@EdixonLori) October 3, 2017
Packed 10 suitcases. Requested a suite with a panoramic view of festival site.— FeysPerson (@FeysPerson) October 2, 2017
I snapped and bit a kid who shoved me off the bus once in 3rd grade. That’s what the term means, not this premeditated crap.— NickieMW🍷FFT🀄️RDC4 (@DocNickie) October 3, 2017
When I snap I run to Barnes and Noble and buy a book while crying. I can't execute a chore much less a plot.— Austin Shinn (@untitleduser) October 3, 2017
Perhaps we could all use a bit of reading to understand the difference between "snapping," and a weeks-long preparation for mass murder.
