    Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said the gunman was shot and killed during an exchange of gunfire with officers at Umpqua Community College. Hanlin refused to name the killer, saying, "I will not give him the credit he probably wanted ... for this cowardly act. You will never hear me mention his name."

    A federal law enforcement source identified the gunman as a local Oregon man, Chris Mercer.

Well fuck

That sheriff also refuses to enforce existing gun laws. "Don't say the shooter's name" is the new "mental illness" -- that is, a way to not do a damn thing about assholes with guns.
