...The San Ysidro McDonald's massacre was an act of mass murder which occurred at a McDonald's restaurant in the San Ysidro neighborhood of San Diego, California, on July 18, 1984. The perpetrator, 41-year-old James Huberty, fatally shot 21 people and wounded 19 others before being killed by a police sniper approximately 77 minutes after he had first opened fire. -At the time, the massacre was the deadliest mass shooting by a lone gunman in U.S. history, being surpassed seven years later by the Luby's shooting.

On July 18, 1984, a man named James Oliver Huberty walked into the McDonald's in San Ysidro, California and opened fire with three semi-automatic weapons into the busy restaurant killing 21 people and injuring 19 more, the youngest six months and the oldest 74. A police officer driving by moments after the shooting noticed three boys lying in the grass, two dead and one "playing dead" so that Huberty would not come out an kill him. Pinned inside the restaurant by police, Huberty was ordered to surrender his weapons and step outside but did nothing and was then shot in the head by a sniper stationed on the roof across the street. Huberty was a welder in Ohio who had lost his job due to his raging temper had moved himself and his wife and kids to California where he got a job as a security guard. He tried to get help for his anger and called a mental health center for an appointment. When the clinic didn't call him back he began an hour-long violent encounter with his wife that ended with Huberty running across the street to the McDonald's restaurant.

In the aftermath, The site of the McDonald's restaurant where a gunman massacred 21 people and wounded 19 others, was razed. In September 1984, bulldozers demolished the building, pounding the stucco walls and red tile roof -even its parking lot, into a pile of rubble that was hauled off to a landfill, promising never again to build any kind of restaurant in that spot again. Instead through greed, the site became the campus of a local college and out front is a wonky designed memorial to Huberty's victims, looking like stacked boxes, that consists of 21 hexagonal granite pillars ranging in height from one to six feet, with a single bronze plaque. ...

That is the wonkiest memorial they could have designed, and to build a building to butt up against it, almost pushing it into the street...ugly. (NT)After all those murdered, they should have dedicated a memorial park on that hallowed site! Greed!Sunday, July 19, 11:11:08am
