Seeing multiple reports that Patrick Crusius is the alleged shooter. Also, let’s pause for a moment and ask:

Why the fuck is the El Paso police sergeant taking photos of the suspect in the back of the police car and sharing it with people?

Here’s the likely Twitter profile. He only has 7 tweets, his last being in 2017.

As you can see from the content, the narrative is now in place: “he’s a Trump fan who supports the wall, wall supporters are terrorists” #Qanon

Also, why is a CNN Producer (Paul Murphy) following him on Twitter? Crusius only has 56 followers, and he hasn’t tweeted in 2 years...

If this is indeed the shooter’s handle (everyone seems to think it is) then it’s notable it hasn’t been scrubbed yet. [They] want people to find it and see the pro-Trump content.

And in Crusius’s replies, we can see the bullshit narrative taking shape in real time.
