The main thing that has already be learned is that the killer is a white man who hated immigrants and who drove nine hours to a border town, so that he could kill some immigrants.
An old friend, and fellow wordsmith, has called our attention to Frank Figliuzzi, Why Does Trump Fan the Flames of Race-Based Terrorism? The president is making the F.B.I.’s job harder:
If I learned anything from 25 years in the F.B.I., including a stint as head of counterintelligence, it was to trust my gut when I see a threat unfolding. Those of us who were part of the post-Sept. 11 intelligence community had a duty to sound the alarm about an impending threat.
Now, instinct and experience tell me we’re headed for trouble in the form of white hate violence stoked by a racially divisive president. I hope I’m wrong.
Well, he wasn’t wrong.
