In a shocking revelation, documents have disclosed that the Jacksonville Dollar General shooter, Ryan Christopher Palmeter, had plans to target rap artists Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. The racially-motivated Jacksonville shooting occurred on Saturday, August 26, where Palmeter killed three Black individuals before taking his own life. The manifesto outlines his disturbing intentions, raising questions about the extent of his planned violence.
In a shocking revelation, the manifesto of Ryan Christopher Palmeter, the white man responsible for the tragic Jacksonville Dollar General shooting, has emerged, shedding light on his extremist beliefs and intentions. The manifesto outlines his desire to start a race war and showcases his admiration for past terrorists such as Timothy McVeigh, Anders Breivik, and Seung-Hui Cho.
Palmeter's manifesto specifically targeted high-profile individuals, including prominent musicians Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. He referred to Eminem by various aliases and expressed his intention to target him due to his perceived shift in lyrics.
RollingStone shared what he wrote, “Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers, aka Slim Shady aka Ken Keniff, aka the white guy from D12): Stared the abyss (being ni–dly) and the abyss stared back (becoming a ni—er),” he wrote. “Walks the edge of ni–er lover and honorary ni–er. Fell off not because his new stuff sucked but because the lyrics were gay annoying liberal shit. ROE for Total Ni–er Death is to include Eminem (aka Marshall Mathers, aka Slim Shady aka Ken Keniff, aka the white guy from D12) as a valid target and he is to be killed on sight.”
The writings provide insight into Palmeter's disturbing beliefs and motivations. He expressed a desire for a race war and praised other mass murderers for their actions. Notably, he held the extremist group the Boogaloo Boys in contempt, labeling them as “larpers,” individuals who engage in role-playing to spread hate.
While the shooter acted alone in the Dollar General attack, his writings reveal a disturbing pattern of drawing inspiration from previous mass killers. Palmeter's manifesto also mentioned Justice Clarence Thomas and Timothy McVeigh, painting a disturbing picture of his mindset.
Law enforcement officials have pointed out that such attacks are often driven by hate and are not isolated incidents. The FBI has begun investigating the shooting as a hate crime and is committed to preventing racially motivated violence. The manifesto's disturbing content highlights the urgency of addressing such issues and working towards a more inclusive society.
In the wake of the tragic Jacksonville Dollar General shooting, the chilling revelations from the shooter's manifesto shed light on the depths of his hateful ideology and disturbing motivations. The attack, which claimed the lives of three Black individuals, including Angela Michelle Carr, Anolt Joseph “AJ” Laguerre Jr., and Jerrald Gallion, has prompted law enforcement to treat it as a hate crime.
The shooter's disturbing fixation on targeting high-profile figures, including Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly, underscores the ongoing challenges of combating racially-motivated violence and extremism. Authorities are intensifying their investigations into the case, with a focus on preventing further acts of violence driven by bigotry and hatred.
