Dayton shooter is described as 'funny' with 'a kind smile' in his family-written obituary; sister's obituary does not mention that her brother killed her.

Neither obit posted on the funeral home's site for the shooter and his sister, Megan Betts, mentions how they died.

The posting goes on to mention that Betts was a grill cook at Chipotle, an avid reader, enjoyed swimming, was a Boy Scout, was in his high school marching band, played Xbox games and loved watching the Fox animated show"Bob's Burgers."

"Connor will be missed immensely by his friends, family, and especially his good dog Teddy," the obit said.

Asked if he considered not running Connor Betts' obit, or if he's faced any community backlash, Koch repeated: “Our focus is to always serve the grieving and carry out their wishes."

did not mention the gunman at all. In the paragraph mentioning her survivors and those"preceded in death," her brother's name was nowhere to be found.

What are they supposed to do? Can you imagine? They lost two children and one murdered nine people including his sister. Have some compassion. JFC. wow Let us not forget that at one time Hitler wanted to be a priest!! It’s so funny he was funny yet murdered people including HIS SISTER!! This family must be the typical “not my baby” “he was a good boy” and they knew he was sick but did nothing! Wtf

I get why this is upsetting for people, but this poor family is grieving the loss of 2 of their children. I do think a little empathy is required here. This could not be more tone deaf. His family fails to get him help which causes great loss of life and then they are arrogant enough to publish this shit?!?

that 'sister' was a Trans male. Just because his family refused to acknowledge that fact does not mean it isn't true and you should continue the indignity in death by using the wrong pronouns. I know you won't correct it, but JFC, you could have tried. Why do they want to kill? No details on why he would kill his sister? Should be investigating this as a possible hate crime.

Kind smile, ANTIFA supporting mass murderer doesn’t really sound good in an obituary. what do you want it to say? Our son was a monster? jesus, gotta remember the family lost both their kids.

Friend who provided Dayton shooter with 100-round magazine and body armor faces federal chargesA friend of the Dayton gunman accused of providing the killer with body armor and extended magazine used during the deadly attack is facing federal firearms charges How about adding knowledge of a crime about to be committed? GOOD

Why are news outlets trying to humanize this monster. He is a mass shooter. Is it because he was a democrat? This is a bit odd. ‘Funny’ and ‘kind smile’ are prob a bit hard for families of those he killed. He’s a mass murderer. Family should have had a bit more sensitivity. Nice guy that killed 9 dead 20 wounded! But he had a nice smile 😃🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

The obit for may omit that NBC had really poor judgment in deciding this is news worthy. Ballsy of the family to even bother with an obit. His brother’s name was JordanCofer. cc: glaad NBCOUT Whoa...that's some messed up family issues there. absolutely disgusting. Disgusting you’d even write this story about people in so much pain...

Remembering Jordan Cofer, Trans Victim of the Dayton Mass Shooting“I started healing when I saw people using his name more.” Osu16Bit Annnnd i'm crying. Osu16Bit So we more sad about a trans person dying than fucking 20 other people dying?

ABC CBSNews MSNBC politico realDonaldTrump FoxNews Because they raised a ulgy racist murderer and they cared less for the daughter anywhoo their lost they got to live with they are probably more racist than ever now🤦🏼‍♂️⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰⚰ Things that make you say “what the fuck!” Sick! weird fact to omit

Seriously ffs Somehow the DNC is behind these shootings. In denial. This is sad for the whole family

Federal prosecutors: Dayton shooter’s friend bought body armor, magazine roundFederal prosecutors have charged a 24-year-old Ohio man, Ethan Kollie, with lying on the federal ATF form when he bought a handgun in May. He's charged with falsely denying that he used illegal drugs. NBC News’ Pete Williams reports on the charge as well as other information from court documents. We are fuct because all over the country young men buy sell and trade guns as a hobby, as a currency. Unless they were duped at purchase the guns don't drop in value and often go up. They can unload their inventory if they need cash or buy more when they have extra

John Legend visits Dayton to 'bring comfort to' survivors week after mass shooting'I love how everyone rallies around one another during their time of grief. But our nation should not keep putting ourselves through these preventable traumas.' “Preventable” And yet, US voters choose to keep the gop as a majority.... Right? Whats sad is the reality: we come together only in time of tragedy and grief. In between we ignore each other, beat and rob, etc. But thats life...

Friend Bought Body Armor and Ammunition for Dayton Gunman, Authorities SayA friend of the Dayton gunman told investigators that he bought the body armor and ammunition the gunman used in the attack, the authorities said Monday. There was no evidence that he intentionally helped in the planning of the attack, authorities added. S h Why you refuse to mention the Dayton terrorist was a Leftist Antifa Bernie Sanders supporter? FakeNews Bias 'What do you even need this for?' 'Uh... hunting?' 'Dude you're legally blind though!' 'Uh... second amendment... rights...uh...' '... you make a very compelling case, friend! Here you go: have fun expressing your second amendment rights!'

Friend of Dayton shooter charged with buying body armor, gun accessories used in deadly attackEthan Kollie is alleged to have purchased items that Connor Betts used in the mass shooting last week that left nine people dead. So what crime are they charging him with? Pretty BS charges and not worthy of a separate press conference since it had nothing to do with the actual shooting. Might as well have press conferences for the thousands of times people 'forget' that they have a gun when going through airport security. Any reporting by nbc of Dayton shooters motivations?
