MASS SHOOTING ON SUBWAY TRAIN COULD THE AUTHORITIES HAVE PREVENTED THIS

A mass shooting took place on a crowded subway train in Brooklyn during morning rush hour yesterday, leaving nearly two dozen injured, five of them critically.
What happened: Around 8:30 AM, a gunman wearing a gas mask and an orange utility vest detonated two smoke bombs in the subway car and began shooting at commuters. According to police, he fired 33 shots from his Glock 9. When the train arrived at the subway station, the passengers evacuated in a panic and the gunman slipped away.
The gunman is still on the run but has been identified by the FBI as Frank R. James, 62. His social media pages show he was a left-wing radical and BLM supporter who claims white people are genocidal.
He was on the FBI radar: According to Newsweek, the suspect was “previously known to the FBI… though he was cleared after multiple interviews in 2019.”
Why is this the case with so many mass shooters? “Previously known” but ultimately ignored so the FBI can focus on more important things like… conspiring against Donald Trump while he’s the sitting President.
If there’s any good news it’s that none of the victims are said to have life-threatening injuries.

My Takeback on this is that CNN was saying that they should start using AI technology to track people. If they tracked people it would make it easier to identify these types of attackers. The issue is this does not stop it from happening, but it does take away our freedom to move around freely without a camera watching our every move. Imagine if the government used this to go after anyone they don’t like, they could say that just because you are in one area you might be involved in crimes you had nothing to do with. We have to figure out where our technology helps us or works against us.
