In the same week that _____ caved on his efforts to keep the government shut down until he could get a wall built, the same week Republicans and White House lapdogs took to news outlets to once again spread the lie of a national crisis at the border, the same week we were being told about M13 kidnapping women, and duct taping their mouths and murdering them, we had three white men in America go on three separate shooting rampages.
Last Wednesday, Zephen Xaver barricaded himself in a SunTrust Bank in Florida before killing five people, He then called the police himself to announce that he’d murdered those strangers; Xaver eventually surrendered to the SWAT team.
Josh Xaver, the murderer’s father said:
"I'm heartbroken for my son. I'm heartbroken for the victims. He wasn't raised to be like this. He's always been a good kid. He's had his troubles, but he has never hurt anyone ever before."
I think he meant ‘yet’.
The next day, Jordan Witmer murdered two people, and injured another, at P.J. Harrigan's bar about two miles from Penn State.
Witmer then fled the scene, crashed his car nearby and shot his way into a home, where he murdered his fourth victim, 83-year-old George McCormick, as the victim's wife locked herself in the bathroom and dialed 911.
Witmer had served in the military and was looking to enter a career in law enforcement, and had a permit to carry a weapon, even into a bar.
In Louisiana, Dakota Theriot lost a place to stay a couple of weeks ago, and Summer Ernest, allowed him to stay in her father’s home.
On Saturday Theriot shot and killed his friend and her family, then drove to his parents' trailer in a neighboring county and killed them. He was arrested more than 1,000 miles to the northeast, in rural Virginia, on Sunday morning.
Theriot had been arrested for minor drug possession but had no history of violent crimes[ investigators also have not said what type of weapon Theriot used or how he obtained it.
But he did.
We have a president who paints brown-skinned people as drug dealers, rapist, murderers and terrorist, and yet in one week we have seen three examples of white men, of homegrown terrorism, of gun deaths, and yet _____ refuses to speak on that.
So, by all means, let’s build a wall. It might make it easier for white men to murder Americans if they have no way of escaping the own country.
