A terrorist shot a woman dead, and injured eight others in a church in Anioch, Tennessee, and there’s no news. Nothing. Silence. Crickets.
A refugee from Sudan admitted that he shot the woman outside the church. But why?
Samson, 25, purportedly posted several cryptic messages on his Facebook page in the days leading up to the attack.
But why would this 25 year old shoot people at a church on a side road in Antioch Tennessee? What purpose could this possibly serve?
A post earlier Sunday read: “Everything you’ve ever doubted or made to be believe as false, is real. & vice versa, B.” Another post read, “Become the creator instead of what’s created. What you say, goes.”
But really? What do those things have to do with shooting innocent people, killing an innocent woman, at a church?
Church members told investigators Samson had attended services a year or two ago, said Don Aaron, a spokesman for the Metro Nashville Police Department.
Still? Shooting the parishioners? Why? What does he benefit from killing or hurting these people?
The gunman pulled into the church’s parking lot as services were ending. Melanie Smith, 39, of Smyrna, Tennessee, was killed when the shooter opened fire in the parking lot. Spann’s wife, Peggy, 65, was also shot as well as William and Marlene Jenkins, 83 and 84 respectively, Linda Bush, 68, and Katherine Dickerson, 64. Police said none of the surviving victims suffered life-threatening injuries.
Dickerson was released from the hospital on Monday. The five other victims remained in the hospital.
The quest here is “Will there be more of these shootings? How to people protect themselves against this kind of horrific incident?”
We need to know.
