The Shooting of Shinzo Abe

His security seriously screwed up here. The shooter may have had some kind of connection to the organizers; as he knew where Shinzo would be despite this being a snap demonstration. Security still should have cleared him before allowing him to get that close.

This isn’t a sniper on a rooftop, he was right behind him.

Ah, here’s the motive:

“Yamagami mentioned his mother’s bankruptcy after she donated to an unnamed religious organization with which Abe had alleged ties, according to Japanese media reports.”

Connection to the unnamed group. Claims it was not political, nor in reaction to Abe’s politics.

That was one of my early thoughts.
