Crazy, crazy, crazy world we live in when a person decides through their racist manifesto to go and kill a news anchor and cameraman live on TV.  All because he felt that a race war needed to start in the US and he was going to be on the forefront of that and a catalyst for it. 

Bryce Williams was told in 2012 to seek counseling or risk losing his job at WDBJ-7, according to internal memos from his personnel file.  Williams, real name Vester Flanagan II, was fired from the station in early 2013 after getting one final warning about his aggressive behavior toward colleagues. On Wednesday morning, he opened fire on reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, two of the people he apparently blamed for his dismissal, killing both of them. He fatally shot himself hours later, after fleeing from the police. 

Mark, Producer Bobby and their guest Matt Krueger decide to talk about the value of social media being used in murders in 2015.  Is this the first real attempt capitolize on social media for showcasing blame? What has been the ramping up of this?  Did Ferguson and the Boston bombing open this door further and Vester just kicked it in hard?  All these things will be discussed in detail.

But before that, Krueger has decided that his life was a mess and that his attitude was a real problem.  So he has come to an epiphany of why this was the case, but it doesn't sit well with Mark because Mark claims to have been telling him all these things for years and years prior to this new knowledge...can the guys get to a middle ground in regards to life...find out on this next episode of the Q.
