Jewish center shootings declared ‘hate crime’

A man with a history of anti-Semitic rantings is facing federal hate crime charges in the deaths of three people outside Jewish facilities in Kansas.

73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, Jr. is accused of shooting and killing three people Sunday afternoon in Overland Park, Kansas, including 69-year-old William Lewis Corporon and his 14-year-oldgrandson, Reat Griffin Underwood.

They were killed behind a Jewish community center.

The third victim, 53-year-old Terri LaManno, was killed outside a nearby Jewish assisted living facility.

Investigators announced Monday that none of the victims were Jewish, they just happened to be near Jewish facilities.

CNN reports that Cross, Jr. is the founder and former leader of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party.

Cross, Jr. is scheduled to be in a local Kansas court Monday on first-degree murder charges.

Because of the parallel federal investigation it’s likely two separate trials will occur in this case.

    Hardly a week goes by without a new report of ANOTHER mass gun killing by some lunatic. And Americans are still trying to
    figure out the solution to these gun shootings:. Is it
    "more guns", "less guns" , "more mental heath care", "more religion",
    "less bullying" , "more armed guards" etc.

    Hey, Americans!! Just Look around you at the rest of the world.
    Every other developed country in the world has ALREADY figured out how
    NOT make gun massacres a monthly news event.

    England, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Japan, Canada, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, China, France,
    Germany…all the other developed countries of the world DON'T have
    these monthly shootings. Only in the USA have these monthly gun
    massacres become a regular ritual.

    Why?
    It's simple. Because other countries take gun ownership SERIOUSLY. People can't just
    walk into Guns Galore and buy a shotgun or semi automatic assault rifle… like a 6 pack of beer.
    Meanwhile….owning a lethal weapon in the US is a JOKE. Anyone can own a gun…."raging racists". the mentally insane, the
    blind, drug addicts, alcoholics, suspected terrorists, people with anger
    management issues, 4 year old toddlers, even people who don't know
    which end of the gun is front…ANYONE..can own a weapon that can cause
    mass destruction.

    And Americans still can't figure out why they are the only developed country on earth with monthly gun massacres?

    When other advanced countries around the world have already solved a problem that
    Americans still keep having month after month…year after year…and
    Americans still can't figure out why they are the only one left with the
    problem.– It's probably because Americans don't have enough common
    sense to learn from other people.

    They have to keep making the same mistake over and over again.

    It's called STUPIDITY.
