Military commanders are warning service members about the potential for mass shootings at screenings of the upcoming film “Joker”, according to media reports.
In a Sept. 18 memo, the Army told soldiers to “identify two escape routes” and “run, hide, fight.” in the event of a shooting.
“Run if you can,” the safety notice reported by Gizmodo said. “If you’re stuck, hide, and stay quiet. If a shooter finds you, fight with whatever you can.” . . .
Elliot Rodger, who killed six people near the University of California’s Santa Barbara campus in 2014 identified as an incel. James Holmes, who open fired in a crowded Aurora, Colo., movie theater during a screening of “The Dark Knight” in 2012 has become a hero within the incel community, the website reported.
The memo said incels “idolize the Joker character, the violent clown from the Batman series, admiring his depiction as a man who must pretend to be happy, but eventually fights back against bullies.” (Read more from “Army Warns Soldiers to Be Ready for Potential Violence by Incels at ‘Joker’ Screenings” HERE)
