A city where most of the population of 680,000 is of Hispanic descent has faced a deadly shooting that took away the lives of twenty people, injuring over two dozen.
The shooting which took place at Walmart is now been treated by the Federal investigators as ‘domestic terrorism.’
The perpetrator of this ungodly act, Mr Patrick Cruisis felt that taking lives he cannot create is the best way to stop the ‘cultural and ethnic replacement brought on by an invasion.’ Presumably referring to Hispanic people in US. Forgetting there’s a God of vengeance!
“Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, in due time their foot will slip; For the day of their calamity is near, And the impending things are hastening upon them.” Deuteronomy 32:35.
“You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.” Matthew 5:21.
Within 13 hours of the shooting in Walmart, another shooting was reported in Ohio where nine people were killed.
29 dead in the space of 13hours! Why they feel justified to take lives, it’s not clear at all!
