This is almost certainly against a dozen local and national laws. It is also almost certainly not going to be prosecuted. If you think this is "cool" replace your beloved special interest group with your most despised one. If you still think this is a great idea you are a Libertarian that believes in personal property rights. If you think it is immoral and should be shut down you are an evil monster devoid of basic reasoning skills that should NEVER be allowed to vote.
For me? Actually I am fine with it. But there MUST be allowed to be a cafe next door that proclaims "No Niggers or Queers Allowed". THAT is what protecting the rights of others looks like.

But it (says at least) it was an accident and a ricochet. Not exactly the "Standing Army mowing down invading hoards" that we need to see to solve this problem.

It will NOT be the same this time - white colonialism. I’ve read a number of articles about how the Chinese are taking ownership of key infrastructure all across the continent as the African nations default on their loans. There are THREE fundamental facts that ensure this time the outcome will be quite different from when whites were there.
By FAR the biggest and most important is “The Chinese give ZERO FUCKS”. They are immune to political correctness, virtue signaling, garden variety guilt trips, and all related sob stories about the Africans that “never had a chance”. Deep down, at their very core, they simply don’t care. This one is primary. They are just in it for the diamonds, gold, and chromium.
China has ONE BILLION warm bodies. They could send ten million men, each with an AK-47, to Africa and it wouldn’t even be a blip on their census. BUT those men won’t be coming with just assault rifles. They will be coming with USA peer force weapons systems. Just like ISIS found out a Russian tactical bomb was orders of magnitude different than Syrian troops rolling barrels of TNT out of helicopters. What does this mean in practice? Unlike when Britain LOST the war in India it is literally militarily IMPOSSIBLE for China to lose. There is no calculus where that happens. There are several where they kill every man, woman, and child on the entire continent. But NONE where they are driven away. AND after they are all dead? See point 1 above. There will not be African reservations like the US did with the American Indians.
The US is the only country that COULD stop China. Britain, the phantom new EU Army, all the rest of the world’s powers would just be so much target practice for the Chinese war machine. So YAY! The Africans are saved by the US Army! Hmm. What if China says NO? What if they want to make it stick? The logical progression is an escalating war. Two problems with that. First the US cannot win a war of attrition with China. A 10 to 1 kill ratio favoring the US means the US will lose. That leaves the second option. Strategic nuclear war. Will the American people, or even it’s fully compromised and corrupted government risk even 1 not to mention 20-100 US cities for a Chinese annexation of Africa? Possibly. But only if they foolishly believe none of those Chinese missiles can reach the US. But behind all the bluster and corporate welfare the DOD knows their missile defense system is only about 15% reliable. And our vast naval capabilities are completely indefensible to anything as pedestrian as 150 anti-ship missiles to 1 hypersonic one. And lets not forget that Cold War crowd please - the nuclear torpedo.
No children. This is the beginning of the end for Africa.

And mercenaries like this are WHY cops are getting shot. If "I" pull a gun on someone for walking towards my car it is "Assault with a deadly weapon". This bastard should be in prison for 3 to 5 years.
If a .50 slug came through the windshield right then it would be completely deserved. The man demonstrated with his own actions that he is a danger to the public. The department has demonstrated by their refusal to identify or arrest the criminal that they believe the law does not apply to them.

I really despise these a alarmists. This article, like most all of them, talks about ONE 4.5 earthquake, and hundreds so small people would not normally notice them. I have no doubt this is indeed caused by Fracking; I just don't give a single tiny little fuck. These self-hating, delusional, morons won't be happy until they are huddled under a homemade tent constructed from the skin of some of the hundreds of millions of people that died from lack of clean water caused by not having any electricity. Seriously, fucktard, you cannot support 7 billion people on vegan gathering.
OK, now for some perspective. Of these 500+ earthquakes, how bad is a 3.0? Well, turns out it is just over the level detectable by humans, roughly equivalent to a big explosion (http://www.charlesapple.com/uploads/2011/03/110312QuakeGraphicCedarRapids.jpg) or probably a bit less than a Metallica concert. "Earth shaking" perhaps, in the most technical terms, but hardly anything to get upset about. In fact well below the level expected to cause damage to even the oldest most poorly constructed garden shed.
In exchange for barely detectable tremors in an area where almost no one lives, we get historically low electricity prices. AH! And there is the real problem. If natural gas is 1/20th the price of unsubsidized solar and wind, infinitely more reliable, and we already have tens of trillions of dollars of infrastructure in place to use it -- exactly when would a rational person switch to something less capable in every respect?
Like the man said - follow the money. Who is set to profit? Which in VERY related news, is the irreducible truth about anti-fracking and it's ugly cousin Climate Change.
Empirical observation shows climate change is not happening. Even the most conservative models have a correlation to the real world over the past 40 years approaching 0.0. But Climate Change was never about the weather. It is about money and power. Forget that at your own peril. Because the criminals hocking this pseudo science will never let up. Plan A was Global Cooling. Plan B was Global Warming, Plan C is extreme weather events (also known throughout history as plain old weather). There is no plan D. So this one HAS to stick or they could all end up in prison.

Hopefully he was burned alive. (I'm not reading the article because I don't care enough). But if there was a video of him being engulfed in flames I'd def watch that. Fucktard
