    Some media outlets are positng fake news stories about him being a muslim, or st-pid stories telling the FBI that he's a jihadi. Fake news, hardly any Latinos are muslim.

    Ive read that he was treated for being mental tho so would not surprise me if he was a convert 'muslim'. Many people with psych issues convert to islam

    Many people with psych issues convert to a religion or a political ideology. Something that gives you structure and takes away personal responsibility is extremely comforting, especially when you're not completely stable.

    Pretty sure they arrested the guy with the weapon, or so the eye witnesses reported.

    No I mean someone on CNN said they are not confident enough to say that the person is definitely called Esteban Santiago

    Well the senator of Florida seemed pretty convinced as his press conference.

    CNN just wanted the shooter to be white so they could continue their rhetoric, Hispanic doesn't fit for them.

    EDIT: CNN even used a black and white picture to stop the guy looking tanned. The real picture is in colour.
