    Isn't crossfit all about training for real life situations? I guess they don't train on how to escape a shooting in a crossfit session. Ironic, isn't it?

  3. say what?

    Boobies, crossfit is not a martial art or a self-defense method. It's a fitness class, and they also focus on healthy eating. It has nothing to do with learning to escape a shooting or an attacker. So no, not ironic. Not even related. You must be thinking of krav maga or some other kind of self defense course.

    Crossfit is like an exercise cult, I'm not surprised that one of the students would begin to act like a cultist.

    Maybe he was killed for his atrocious front squat technique?!

    Another victim who should have been armed himself, but wasn't. And yes, he should have had a gun nearby even in an exercise class. He obviously had enemies and I'm sure he knew it. It's amazing the number of people who leave themselves open to being slaughtered.

    I wonder if the cross-fit dude was sleeping with some dude's gf who is in his class. For whatever reason that's the first thing that came to my mind.

    @wb

    With respect, i would not want to carry a gun around. Come on, what kind of answer is that?
    I expect someone to shoot me, so i have to carry a gun. The problem lies with the person who wants to shoot me.
    I hate carrying a gun. I rather try to evade the shooter.

    He was messing with the wrong people. Either sexually or monetarily. No sympathy here. Darwin wins even if it takes him a few times. Now if Darwin could just get to the other 6.75 billion moronic idiots taking up space while they lead their ignorant and pointless existences. Then it would be a good start.

    So many people are insensitive; take a moment and imagine if that was you, your brother, or son. No one has the right to take a life. May he rest in Peace, and the shooter be prosecuted to the full extent of the law

    He was about to expose the NSA on something, so the Illuminati targeted him.
