Man, even a yoga class is not safe in Florida.

A man opened fire at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, killing two people and injuring five others, before turning the gun on himself, police said.

People inside Hot Yoga Tallahassee appeared to have fought Scott Paul Beierle, a 40-year-old man from Deltona, Florida, on Friday and tried to save themselves and others, Tallahassee police Chief Michael DeLeo said.

Police received 911 calls about a shooting at 5:37 p.m. Friday — minutes after a hot yoga flow class was scheduled to begin, according to the studio’s website.

When officers arrived, they found that six people were shot and one person had been pistol-whipped.

Two of the victims have died. They were identified as Nancy Van Vessem, 61, and Maura Binkley, 21.

Two other women were in stable condition in the hospital. One was shot nine times, and the other had a bullet pass through her body, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum told reporters. Gillum is the Democratic nominee in the Florida governor’s race.

Currently, they are saying that the man acted alone and I don’t think any reason has been given for his actions. 

However apparently this man had a history of assaulting women.

The gunman who shot and killed two people and wounded at least five others before killing himself Friday had a history of arrests for grabbing women, according to Leon County court records.

Scott Paul Beierle, 40, was arrested in 2012 on a charge of misdemeanor battery after allegedly grabbing the buttocks of two women on the campus of Florida State University, according to Leon County court records. He was arrested again in 2016 on a battery charge after allegedly slapping and grabbing another women’s rear end by the swimming pool at the West Tennessee Street apartment complex where he lived.

The State Attorney’s Office filed information in both cases. However, prosecutors eventually dropped the charges.

According to Buzzfeed, the guy was a Right Wing incel with a history of misogyny: 

The man who shot dead two women at a yoga studio in Tallahassee, Florida, on Friday before killing himself was a far-right extremist and self-proclaimed misogynist who railed against women, black people, and immigrants in a series of online videos and songs.

Scott Beierle, 40, was named by Tallahassee Police as the gunman who opened fire inside the Hot Yoga Tallahassee studio, killing two and injuring four other women and a man.

On a YouTube channel in 2014, Beierle filmed several videos of himself offering extremely racist and misogynistic opinions in which he called women “sluts” and “whores,” and lamented “the collective treachery” of girls he went to high school with.

“There are whores in — not only every city, not only every town, but every village,” he said, referring to women in interracial relationships, who he said had betrayed “their blood.”

Beierle also apparently wrote several songs lamenting the fact that women were constantly rejecting him and using violent imagery.

So this is the case of yet another Right Wing asshole who can’t get laid, taking a gun and punishing the world for his shortcomings. 

If they stay true to form the conservatives will probably suggest that yoga students need to start packing heat. 

Which of course would be ridiculous and more than a little awkward.

    It is well known that cutting the nuts off young studs removes all that reproduction fervor. Perhaps that is the solution??? Watch the FB posts and Twitter Twattage, and when a guy presents this type of misogyny, make him a candidate. Once he’s removed from the gene pool, maybe he’d commit himself to doing something productive with his life…

    Many likely thought, “Track was in Florida this week?”

    These men call themselves “incels” which stands for involuntarily celibate. There are tons of message boards where these men hang out, sad, lonely, angry, horny and blaming the world because for various reasons they cannot find lasting romantic love or even get laid without paying for it. The internet hives where they hang out are a mess of misogyny and seething anger. Most of the men who have committed some of our most heinous crimes are self-identified incels.

    Once again, a man habitually assaults women, yet nothing is done to stop him until he kills several, after which hands are wrung and words are moaned that ‘we couldn’t possibly have predicted this!’

    And the incels piss and moan that they’re soooo discriminated against and treated worst in all of society.

    ““My son today has a bleeding kit on his person,” said Broward County medical director Dr. Peter Antevy. He noted the day after the Parkland shooting, he made sure his son had one in his school bag. The boy is 12.”
