Last Saturday’s horrific massacre in Buffalo has left a community in shock. Ten people were killed and three more were injured when a gunman opened fire on shoppers at a Tops Supermarket in Buffalo, New York. The main suspect, 18-year old Payton S. Gendron, is currently in police custody and charged with 1st degree murder.
The FBI has been involved in the investigation, owing to the graphic nature of the crime and its apparently racially motivated nature, which renders it a federal hate crime. The FBI has so far interviewed the suspect’s parents and confirmed the existence of a white supremacist manifesto purportedly written by the shooter.
Given the FBI’s recent intense focus on white supremacist violence (real and imagined), the question inevitably rises of why the FBI was not able to stop this horrific crime in the first place. What, if anything, did the FBI know about the alleged shooter beforehand? Could this possibly been a case of entrapment gone wrong?
