Attempts by the increasingly insane Donald Trump, and his unhinged followers, to politicize this young woman’s tragic death represent a special brand of stupid. She was killed by a maniac that happened to be an illegal alien. All of a sudden, President Obama is at fault because he didn’t attend her funeral or issue a statement…the usual illogical attempts of false equivalency follow. He spoke out in the cases of Trayvon Martin…Mike Brown and Freddie Gray…Why not here?
Probably, because there is no correlation between these tragic murders. Steinle, was unfortunately killed by an illegal immigrant which is UNUSUAL since the majority of people that kill others with guns in this country are from here.
According to table#41(Deportation Statistics) on dhs.gov=the federal government nearly doubled its deportation of criminal illegal immigrants from 2008-2013. Illegals are NOT the majority in our prisons…our murder rate statistics…or our society. The loser responsible for Steinle’s murder is an outlier…he will be punished…justice will be served.
To suggest that unarmed black lives lost due to police brutality are somehow connected to this tragedy is absurd. It devalues the case at hand…while continuing to disrespect victims whose families will never realize justice. The greatest hypocrisy=The very people who raked the POTUS over the coals for speaking out against rampant racism and police brutality have a problem when he doesn’t address their own isolated personal agendas.~Daryl~
