Well, most killers, rapists, terrorists and pedos use facebook, including the El Paso shooter. Who gives a fuck about 8chan?

What do they expect him to do? What information do they think he is going to give them that is so important? This is similar to when newspapers were given manifestos by violent asshats in the past; Ted Kaczynski did this and many others. I don't recall Congress subpoenas being sent to the newspapers in those situations...
