It should come as no surprise that the social media accounts of Dayton, Ohio, mass shooter and self-proclaimed Satan worshiper Connor Betts, were whitewashed from the internet shortly after the coward gunned down his own sister, killed 9 and injured 26 others early Sunday morning.
Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl claimed Betts had no “bias motive” in the senseless slaughtering of innocents in downtown Dayton, Ohio over the weekend, but it is unclear how that can be determined since an investigation has not yet been completed.
“We do not have sufficient information to answer the question everyone wants to know: ‘Why?'” Biehl told CNN, adding that there was “no evidence [that] suggests that there is a bias motive in this crime at this time.”
Curious where Chief Biehl and others investigating this crime are gathering their evidence from?
It appears there have been great strides taken to delete any evidence that Betts was a deranged, violent, Satanic worshiping leftist who was easily impressionable and who followed several Antifa accounts on social media, as well as liberal journalists known for doxxing and getting conservatives banned on social media.
The shooter’s now deactivated Twitter bio read, “he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i’m going to hell and i’m not coming back.”
In one tweet, Betts posted a selfie and used the hashtags “#selfie4satan #HailSatan @SatanTweeting”
Another archived tweet from Betts’ Twitter account in December of 2013, showed a receipt totalling $6.66, with the caption, “Always comes to this total. Guess I’m Satan now.”
Betts often tweeted about attacks on ICE officials, repeatedly called prominent conservatives nazis, retweeted posts from Antifa accounts on Twitter and often replied to left-wing media outlets with violent rhetoric such as “Kill every fascist.”
One of the last tweets liked by the mass shooter was of an “Antifa domestic terrorist” who called for the death of Jack Posobiec. Both Betts’ alleged Twitter account, and that of which threatened Posobiec have since been deactivated.
Shortly after confirmation of Betts being identified as the mass shooter in downtown Dayton, several former classmates began to come forward with their recollection of Betts having been a violent bully in school. They claim he once attacked the school, and had a hit list that was split into two columns – one designated for female students he wanted to rape as well as one for his general kill list for male students.
Spencer Brickler was one of Betts’ former classmates at Bellbrook High School and told CNN he remembers the school counselor telling both he and his sister that their names appeared on Betts’ hit list.
The former classmates all recollect Betts being suspended from Bellbrook High School for at least one year following the discovery of his hit list and his subsequent suspension.
Former classmate Ben Seitz, from Cincinnati, Ohio, confirmed the other statements those who attended the high school told CNN in a Facebook post. Seitz’s comments have not yet been verified but read as follows:
Another former classmate, Chenoa Sandoval also posted on her Facebook page that Betts was constantly harassing female students and confirmed the hit list that resulted in his suspension from the high school. Sandoval included several screenshots of both public and private conversations with other students who attended Bellbrook High School who all say Betts was “openly talking about doing this for a decade and no one could do anything about it.”
“Before the Media portrays this full grown man as an innocent kid who was damaged in high school due to bullying I want to set the record straight right now.
Connor Betts had a history of serious harrassment [sic] towards fellow female students. Some of which were my friends or siblings of friends.
He had a notebook with detailed information on how he wanted to hurt fellow female students.
He had a hit list in the same notebook, of which majority were female classmates. Again which included friends or siblings of friends.
He was arrested and suspended from the school for said notebook. (Finally, after the school and teachers ignored various female students complaints of him.)”
The Central OH SRA Twitter account seemingly condoned Betts’ actions posting on Sunday that they are “not against action, though.”
Before the shooter’s Twitter account was deactivated, hundreds of people grabbed screenshots of Betts’ violent rhetoric as well as his interactions with left-wing media publications and outlets. Betts’ seemed to be a big fan of Right Wing Watch reporter, Jared Holt, often retweeting or liking his posts. Holt had recently claimed both Ali Alexander and Mike Cernovich had prior knowledge of the mass shooting in El Paso, Texas.
Ali Alexander responded to Holt’s tweets on Twitter and Periscope:
Twitter user Fast Eddie (@Fast_Edd2) tweeted, “Yesterday, @JaredHolt lied and tried to connect you @Ali to the El Paso shooting. Then just hours later, BAM, he gets caught deleting tweets that clearly connect him personally to the Dayton antifa-loving mass-murderer. Karma really is a BITCH, @JaredHolt,” alerting Alexander to Holt’s dangerous posts.
Alexander also posted screenshots on Sunday of his exchange with a friend curious about the accusations, “This text exchange, in addition to my 53-minute livestream yesterday, is what I can publicly say at this time. I have no interest in participating in the blame game re: #ElPaso. Jared Holt articulated *lies* that are not true and Mike Cernovich *didn’t* say. More eventually,” Alexander said.
“After Jared Holt’s connection to the #DaytonShooter was revealed, he stopped tweeting, unfollowed me, deleted some of his tweets the shooter favorited, and blocked the shooter to erase his likes. The shooter liked his commentary accusing me of #ElPaso murders. Coming soon.”
Ali Alexander tweeted early Monday morning about how Holt went into damage control mode, deleting tweets and blocking Betts so it would appear the shooter did not follow Holt’s Twitter account, or like and retweet Holt’s dangerous and reckless tweets.
Why would left-wing reporter and admitted doxxer Jared Holt want to distance himself from Betts? At what point does journalistic integrity come into play and at what point should those who use social media to stoke the flames of violence and hatred be held accountable for reckless reporting?
Jared Holt uses his social media to push false accusations that many popular Conservatives are white supremacists and Nazis, and has advocated for deplatforming Trump supporters on social media.
It is worth noting that the shooter supported Holt’s pro-deplatforming message, and often participated in calling conservatives “nazis” on Twitter. His social media posts further exposes the backward standards of social media companies that allow violent Leftists turned mass shooters to have social media, while they ban conservatives like Laura Loomer, Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopoulos who have been falsely labeled as “dangerous individuals”.
