Hate With A Gun

Hate with a gun was the primary tactic used when this country was stolen from the Natives of the land and it is clear from the “history” books that this infection has no cure in sight.

With the recent school, synagogue and police shootings comes the terrifying reminder that hate can come in many forms and strikes without notice. Hate with a gun does more harm, destroys the good and displays blatant disrespect to those who pay homage- and to the Almighty altogether rather the place of worship be a baptist church or synagogue.

 

Suspected shooter 19-year-old John T. Earnest was in court this week and was charged with one count of murder and three counts of attempted murder, among those hurt was rabbi Yisroel Goldstein and an 8-year-old child. 60-year old Lori Kaye, who was known as the “Matriarch” for her contribution into creating the Chabad of Poway synagogue was killed in the tragic shooting. Lori’s daughter Hannah Kaye had spoke of her mother as being “an advocate of peace”

John Earnest was said to have a bulletproof vest, several magazines holding at least 50 rounds of ammunition, a helmet and a riffle in his possession along with premeditated hate in his heart.

Earnest faces the death penalty if convicted and he has pleaded not guilty.

 

In mid-April, Connecticut police officer Devin Eaton opened fire on a car parked near Yale University, injuring 22-year-old Stephanie Washington in the gun blaze when she was struck in the face but Washington’s boyfriend, Paul Witherspoon was not hurt in the shooting.

The police officers thought the car occupied by Washington and Witherspoon matched the description of a vehicle used in an armed robbery and Eaton had shot at the car when Paul Witherspoon supposedly had exited “abruptly”

 

Protesters in Connecticut have gathered for peaceful demonstrations all during the week following the incident involving the black, unarmed- profiled couple.

 

Alleged gunman Trystan Andrew Terrell was charged with 2 counts of murder and 4 counts of attempted murder in the University of North Carolina (Charolotte campus) when he shot at students on the last day of school killing Ellis Parlier, Riley Howell and wounding 4 other students. Howell was praised as being a hero when he fought with Terrell, disarming him and preventing further loss of life.

 

The disregard for human life may be glorified so many ways in today’s society but there is no logical reason for conscious wickedness. The root reasons of hatred and anger must be addressed and dealt with accordingly because the “violent video game” excuse is long played out and the re-insertion of what is fact/fiction and what is right/wrong must be brought back to the table because it is time for accountability. People also have the right to be able to pray and celebrate their deities safely no matter if it’s in their homes or other places of worship without the fear of death. When was the last time you heard of a rash of violent attacks perpetrated by humble folks against churches that welcomes those of satanic faith? (everyone has rights, right???) One good reason could be that there are people on this earth who are too busy walking in truth, love and in the faith that peace is to come.
