Just hearing of an incident ongoing in YouTube' corporate headquarters, courtesy of CBS news. Hoping nobody here is directly affected:
Watch "Active shooter situation at Youtube HQ", a CBSN video on CBSNews.com. View more CBSN videos and watch CBSN, a live news stream featuring original CBS News reporting.

It was domestic violence. A girlfriend quite angry with her boyfriend. A girl doing this is quite unusual.

@pgntwo Perhaps not, but London has surpassed New York City in murders and the weapon of choice in London is the knife. If this happened in London, more newsworthy it would be.
London has overtaken New York City’s murder rate for the first time in contemporary history as the capital has been overwhelmed with a spate of stabbings. According to a new report, February was the first month the UK capital was home to more murders than

Oh no! Well, YouTube itself has haters. I had issues yesterday with the site, it kept on giving me errors. The ones with the monkeys that are afraid of screenshots. Hopefully it isn't causing much damage.

So now even youtube is being attacked. It is true that even companies is not safe as well. Shooters can just go on shooting anyone at anytime.

Youtube got attacked by Angry Youtubers who got their channels demonetized. Adult marketed videos use to make money with Youtube. You know those Vloggers who curses on their videos, Women who dresses sexy on their videos and other videos that is more targeted to adults. Suddenly those inappropriate unathorized Spiderman Elsa videos became viral at Youtube kids app making many parents complain. You can also add the controversy when Popular Youtuber Pewdiepie did a racist Joke and the Paul Brothers causing a lot of controversies for views. That make Youtube became too strict and demonitized a lot of videos. The shooter got mad because her channel got demonetized.

@CaptAlbertWhisker I see. Thank you for that info, my friend. But if that is the case, Youtube did what they think is right. And acting out of anger can really cause serious damage. People want their freedom expressed yet they cannot do their responsibilities. Tsk.

@mlgen1037 She didnt know that many demonetized channels and adult content channels can still earn money via Patreon. Instead of acting out of anger she should have tried ways to earn with Youtube after being demonetized. Also Youtube has been trying to solve the problem of Adult Youtube channels so they can make money again but she was impatient.

Youtube is partly blamed. The shooter got crazy because she was victim of the adpocalypse. Its where Youtubers stopped making money because of bot censorship. For sure her decision is wrong and stupid but I understand her frustration.

@Plethos which didnt happen since Youtube deleted all her channels while channels of spree killers are still uploaded.

@CaptAlbertWhisker - thats what the common thinkers would say. Others will still view it as censoeship, deleting of evidence. Leave it up, so we can decide for ourselves type of thing.

@pgntwo Someone it seems has been annoyed. It also seems that the UDA were mightily miffed yesterday at a reporter deigning to report on criminal activity associated with them.

@xFiacre Perhaps it was more a disgruntled girl thing, now I have seen a little more about it...

Sounds like someone driven to insane action by the actions of a powerful corporation... over the edge, as it were.

The shooter apparently is a Youtuber who use to make money from Youtube but got victimized by the Adpocalypse. Youtube is her source of income and she snapped.

Thank you, I am looking at the live stream. It seems serious, music does not always sooth the minds.
