Christopher Sean Mercer birth certificate birthday birth date july 26 1989
His mother is a nurse named Laurel Margaret Harper born April 5, 1951 in Los Angeles, California. Mother's maiden name is Cobb. She is listed as a psychological assistant. Her two licenses were cancelled but her record appears clear. Chris Mercer her son had aspergers. Another mass murderer with aspergers like Elliot Rodger and Adam Lanza. He was also chubby with bad acne as a kid. That alone is tough enough on a kid growing up. I bet the mother of Elliot Rodger feels this mother's pain about having a kid with Asperger's who goes on to kill many people. So sad for everyone. Laurel is a registered nurse in Oregon.

FAUX News ? Come on now ... this is the same organization that had the "nerve" (and that's all they have, no facts just nerve) to label a standard "black" greeting (now used by everyone) as a "TERRORIST FIST BUMP".
So, the more I read on this, the more it seems that there is an element of Muslim extremism in this event. Of course, the WaPo reporter and the people here are much, much more interested in tarnishing Fox and Sean Hannity's word - than the actual shooters actions.
The real bigotry is that if someone is white - they cannot be a victim. Christian, can't be a victim. But anyone of mixed race (like the shooter) or religion other than Christian can be given the victim's red carpet simply by saying a word.
So, in this guy's zeal to shred Hannity and Fox, he didn't bother to even wait to see what was learned about the shooter. The reporter just started shooting.
Maybe! There is no indication that Chris Harper Mercer, who murdered thirteen people at Umpqua College, was acting on behalf of the Islamic State, or was even a Muslim at all. But that hasn’t stopped the Islamic State from claiming credit for his murders. After all, they want to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60), and one way they can do that is by appearing to be stronger than they are. And they must have loved the bit about how he singled out Christians, as they do. That's the real problem! Whether or not, still inconclusive, he played right into the hands of the Muslim group ISIS, HAMAS, etc. ISIS the biggest Islamic mass murdering hate groups that have committed many of their own holocaust but it seems the only one who wants to deal with it is Putin. Does not say much for the guy in the WH!
Another example of someone either knowingly misleading people about the Qur'an, or copying and pasting verses off of the internet without understanding the passage from which those verses are drawn.
This particular passage talks about people who made a peace treaty with the Muslims but who then broke their treaty and waged war against the Muslims. At that point, yes, the Qur'an commands the Muslims to fight back.
But look at the VERY NEXT VERSE: (8:61). "But if they incline towards peace, you [Prophet] must also incline towards it, and put your trust in God: He is the All Hearing, the All Knowing."
So either you didn't actually read the Qur'an, or worse, you knew what it said but were intentionally trying to mislead people by citing verses in a way that makes Islam seem violent.
Farhan Bhatti, thanks for clarifying this! My family is always wondering what's being left out when people quote snippets of the Qur'an like this. Clearly George Glaser is more interested in pushing his extremist agenda than in seeking the truth.
The problems is not any particular religion; the problem is religious fundamentalism. All religious extremists are a danger to the rest of us.
"Umpqua student Savannah Nardli said her friend Anastasia Boylan, who underwent surgery for a gunshot wound to the spine, remembered the shooter asking her classmates, 'Are you Christian?' before he shot them."
Jeez, people, from a wounded student to her friend to a reporter (or, worse, to a pack of reporters) to an editor. Is that path not long enough to justify a bit of skepticism on your part(s) about what he actually said and to how many victims he said it?
Especially since one of the Columbine shooters apparently was reported as asking the same - someone even wrote a book about it - and it turned out later to be untrue, or at least not true to the extent originally reported.
She's saying that there is a possibility that the injured girl was not thinking straight, or that her family and friends like the idea of portraying her as a martyr, or that she herself was aware of the girl at Columbine who became the focus of a movement to make a saint of her, or any number of other possibilities.
We need reporting from the others who were present. I wouldn't be surprised if the guy had a particular dislike for his Christian classmates and singled them out. He needn't have any sympathy with Muslims to do that. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out not to be the case.
People's perspectives are not less valid because they have not themselves been shot, and asking questions about details of the story does not imply any lack of respect and concern for the victims and their families.
