SUSPECT ARRESTED IN ILLINOIS JULY FOURTH PARADE SHOOTING THAT KILLED 7 PEOPLE

PENNIES: Social media is a big part of that. Think about it. These companies don’t even share information with law enforcement. And we know those indicators are here with those mass shooters. I’m sick of these mass shootings happening in the United States. But the reality is these social media companies, they see this content on their platform and do not share it with law enforcement. So we can talk all day about being reactionary and the signs that we missed as… law enforcement. But at the end of the day, if we don’t get the information before the attack happens, there’s no way we can intervene to prevent the attacks from happening. … And in that spirit, Judge, I want to be sure to remind people – as president of the National Fallen Officers Foundation – I want to remind people that we come to the sixth anniversary of the mass attack in Dallas, Texas, which claimed the lives of five police officers.
