People are literally DYING because racists are coming out of the woodwork under the Trump administration!
They feel comfortable now “taking their country back” – with violence, if necessary.
The suspect in the shooting, Adam Purinton, was drinking at the bar in Olathe, Kansas; he unexpected yelled “get out of my country”, reportedly saying the men – originally be from India – were “Middle Eastern.” He then KILLED one of them!
And he isn’t charged with a hate crime!
Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an engineer at Garmin, was killed. Another victim injured in the shooting, Alok Madasani, also worked there.
“There is a fear of the other that has been exacerbated during the election.”
Police found Purinton 80 miles away, five hours later, at a Clinton, Missouri Applebee’s. He allegedly told the bartender there about the shooting.
“The diversity is increasing. It’s still small but it’s growing. A small contingent in my congregation are Indian. So I want people in our church to think about what things must be like for them right now. And to let them know that we are thinking of them.”
Purinton has been charged with one count of premeditated first degree murder, and two counts of attempted premeditated first degree murder.
***SHARE if you agree the RACISM coming out under Trump is UNACCEPTABLE! Comment if you think that this TRAGIC attack should have been avoided – and white supremacists need to be investigated!
