Within 2 minutes, the ‘Twitch’ platform intervened and stopped streaming. All three weapons in the attacker’s possession were legally purchased. More than a dozen other ethnic groups in the United States have been found sharing a 180-page notification online with information about their preparations for the attack, which has raised concerns about whites becoming a minority.
