The shooter in the Emcore shootings in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is named Robert Reza
, and is apparently an American. Not that they`ll tell us.
UPDATE: Here`s a picture of Robert Reza, of New Mexico, who apparently shot his girlfriend and some other people at Emcore. Whenever we hear of a shooting like this, we wonder wheather it`s a case of what we call "Immigrant Mass Murder,"
like the Virginia Tech
shootings. In this case, probably not.
I came to that conclusion largely by stereotyping—Reza is in an area with many assimilated Hispanic Americans, he`s called Robert instead of Roberto, he worked for a technology company rather than a landscaper, and now that I see him, he doesn`t look
like a Mexican Indian. However, if anybody actually knows, please email me.
