“On Tuesday, April 3, Nasim Najafi Aghdam approached YouTube’s headquarters in San Diego, California and started shooting. She ended up injuring three people, with a fourth suffering a twisted ankle sustained during what must have been a situation full of panic,” Matthew Humphries reports for PC Magazine. “Aghdam was found dead by local police with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”
“Her actions look to be a response to YouTube filtering her videos and therefore impacting her income,” Humphries reports. “She apparently hated the company and decided to commit this horrific act.”
“Google is now dealing with the fallout, and what must be some very worried and scared employees. In response, the company is taking action to ensure everyone is safe going forward,” Humphries reports. “Using the Google Communications Twitter account, the YouTube Team posted this statement:”

Apple CEO Cook offers ‘sympathy and support’ after YouTube shooter opens fire – April 4, 2018

I hope thats arc!
Even better, lets ban murder! Oops, that didn’t work
thats a different discussion entirely….
Because when you ban guns nobody will get them illegally.
If you make places “Gun free zones” the shooters will literally see the sign and walk away.
How about banning mental illness?
It would be just as effective.
dear lord… that’s a lazy answer !!
I simply declare my personal space a gun-free zone because bad guys better respect gun-free zones and I trust politicians and want to yield fully to all authority.
Armed security, I’m sure.
You don’t mean to say that Google thinks that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun???
@MDN, your full article link goes to Google_Comms twitter, not the article.
FWIW, the article also has an error. YouTube HQ, where the shooting happened, is in San Bruno not San Diego. (500 miles apart)
Why ban guns worldwide? Just ban them in the United States, the only place in the world where you can buy them online or at a flea market. I got mine from a friendly uncle, and a concealed carry permit from a friendly sheriff. But when you do ban them, make an exception for mine, if you please.
