The recent shooting at a supermarket in Buffalo was a "racist hate crime", police say. The shooter, 18, killed 10 people and wounded 3 others. https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/15/us/buffalo-supermarket-shooting-sunday/index.html I've been reading the 180 page manifesto he uploaded before the murders. It's explicit about the way he was radicalized via 4chan. Some of it is plagiarized from another shooter's manifesto who he describes as his inspiration. A lot of the manifesto is made up of memes. Much of it is false: there are references to passages in the Torah that aren't really there. Statistics that don't bear out. It has the veneer of being researched until you actually know anything about the topics at hand. He describes himself as an intolerant fascist racist anti-Semitic neo-Nazi...but not a conservative. What responsibility do content hosts like 4chan have in preventing people from being radicalized? I don't mean legally, Section 230 isn't going away just yet. Morally though? He said that the thing that "opened his eyes" was seeing video of the Christchurch shooting on 4chan and reading /pol during the 2020 lockdowns. He was exposed to these racist memes with no counterpoint. I worry that my kids will find themselves radicalized in this same way, especially as they share less of their online activities with me.
