    Maybe the officials who don’t know what led to the shooting should read the part of this that tells you what led to the shooting?

      Yes, how DARE they be poor. If someone like overlord Donald J. trump can go from RAGS to RICHES like has been claimed than anyone can! Build a wall around poor people!

        So you’re saying it’s OK for poor people to take money from people that have money with force and if they don’t hand it over, shoot them? And somehow this is all Trumps fault? Got it.

        Sad how you support welfare fraud/ bums and somehow rave Trump into this report of a lowlife criminal shooting a woman he couldn’t victimize for drug money and used his illegal gun to show just how mentally sick he is — Wanna go further and “guess ” the ethnic origin of the shooter ?

        Well im sure i already know what color you probably think his skin is. But i digress, the trump comment was simply sarcasm, because many of his supporters think being born into an extremely rich and privileged family and getting a “small” 4 million dollars from daddy was genuinely going from rags to riches. He is a pathological liar about everything and almost half the country eats it for breakfast lunch and dinner. Playin y’all like a fiddle and you love it! Also i do absolutely condemn this person for doing what he did, its terrible, but that doesn’t make all or even most poor people scum of the earth.
