These past couple of weeks have been filled with violence and mass shootings which are a common occurrence in America today. They enter and exit the mainstream media news cycle on a regular basis, creating outrage and sadness but little action to remedy the causes. Here are some words for the weekend on that note. Stay safe family and love one another.
On Friday November 27th, a gunman walked into a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood which led to an extended hostage situation. In the end, it left 3 people dead and 9 others wounded. Once again, gun violence, mass shooting, and hate takes the lives of innocent people.
Robert Lewis Dear (1958- ), a White American “lone gunman”, shot 12 people, killing three, at a Planned Parenthood health clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado on Friday November 27th 2015.
Among his victims, he shot six police officers, killing one. The police, instead of “fearing for their lives” and quickly gunning him down, as they do with Black males as young as 12, talked him into surrendering after a five hour stand-off.They took him alive.
