EL PASO, TX
At least 20 people were killed and at least 26 more people were injured when a man walked into a local Wal Mart store inside of the Cielo Vista Mall and opened fire with an assault rifle on Saturday morning.
21-year old Patrick Cruisus
According to USA Today (@USAToday), the shooter has been identified as 21-year old Patrick Cruisus. Police reported finding a “manifesto” belonging to the suspect. The manifesto was allegedly written hours, or even minutes before the shooting. The manifesto was posted online to 8chan, an online message board frequented by racist, extremist, and conspiracy theorists. In the manifesto, Cruisus allegedly wrote about his act of domestic terrorism being “a response to the Hispanic invasion of Texas.” Cruisus lives in a Dallas suburb more than 650 miles away from El Paso where he committed the act of domestic terrorism. It’s likely that he traveled more than 650 miles with one purpose in mind. After killing 20 people or more, Cruisus was taken into police custody alive and unharmed.
El Paso sits along the border with neighboring Juarez Mexico just on the other side. The nearby city of Las Cruces, New Mexico, form an area of the largest bilingual, bi-national population in North America. Mexico’s President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, said three Mexican nationals were among the 20 people killed in the act of domestic terrorism. And at least six others were among the 26 reported injured in the massacre. Reports have surfaced that many of the injured refused treatment out of fear of being met by I.C.E as they arrived at the hospital.
SAN DIEGO, CA
19-year old John Earnest, who is the suspect in the shooting at a San Diego Synagogue on Saturday, is also the author of a manifesto, who claimed to have set a nearby Mosque on fire last month. In the manifesto, Earnest wrote that his inspiration for the crime came from the gunman who killed 50 people at two Mosque in New Zealand.

Reuters (@reuters) reported, Earnest turned himself in to police shortly after carrying out the deadly shooting at the San Diego Synagogue that was filled with Sabbath worshippers at the time of the assault. Earnest walked into the suburban San Diego Synagogue late Saturday morning, the last day of Passover, and opened fire with an Ar-15 assault-style rifle. One woman was killed and three other people were injured in the act of domestic terrorism including the Rabbi. Earnest then sped away in a car, and eluded an off-duty border patrol agent, who managed to get off a couple of shots at Earnest before he fled. A short time later, Earnest pulled the car over and surrendered to police officers.
26 people were killed and at least 20 more people were injured when 26-year old domestic terrorist, Devin Patrick Kelly decided to walk into a church and open fire from an AR-556 rifle he was carrying. As police and FBI attempt to piece together a motive for the horrible tragedy, a few details about the shooter has unraveled. The one that might actually put a motive to this horrible tragedy is the fact that the shooter’s estranged wife and in-laws attended the church. The wife nor in-laws were present at the time of the shooting.
The President of the United States interrupted his trip abroad to weigh in on the tragedy. Speaking from Japan, Trump expressed condolences to the victims of the shooting. He also said that the shooter was mentally ill and that the shooting was caused by a mental health problem, not an issue with U.S. gun laws. Just last week the president called for a travel ban for Muslims from certain Countries once again, when a single individual drove a truck through a crowded New York bike path. The president also called that person an animal and called for his immediate execution. The shooting that took place in Texas yesterday, along with the horrible shooting tragedy in Las Vegas where over 50 people were killed by high-powered automatic rifles, both caused the president to sing a different tune. In those cases the shooter was “mentally ill” and there was no need for tougher gun laws, because these acts were committed by one mentally ill individual. The president doesn’t even consider a mass-shooting done by a white man as terrorism. He will never define it as such, no matter how many times it happens, or how many people it kills. But, when the one mentally ill in individual who commits a horrible act or crime is Muslim or from the Middle East, then his act is immediately considered terrorism in the eyes of the president. It’s also no longer the actions of one “mentally ill” individual, that “individual’s” crimes become the actions of a whole religion, therefore a travel ban from whatever Country the individual is from must be implemented. This is the mind of the president of the united States. The mind of an evil, racist, individual who seems hell-bent on dividing, and tearing this Country apart.
