Crime rates in cities run by liberals are always higher than those run by right wingers. There’s even evidence to support that the cities that voted for HRC have the highest crime rates in the country.
President Trump has just confirmed that Hodgkinson has died from wounds incurred during his shootout with the Capitol Police this morning.
Bernie Sanders has just issued the following statement after learning that this morning’s shooter “is someone who apparently volunteered on my presidential campaign.“
CBS has just confirmed that one of the victims from this morning’s shooting has just been confirmed dead by GWU Hospital.
This morning’s Alexandria, VA shooter has been identified as 66-year-old, never-Trumper and Bernie Sanders supporter James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Ill., according to law enforcement officials. As we reported earlier this morning, Hodgkinson allegedly asked Rep. Jeff Duncan whether it was Republicans or Democrats on the practice field before opening fire. We’ve covered all of the key developments throughout the morning here.
According to press reports, Hodgkinson apparently owns a home inspection business though his license expired in November 2016 and was not renewed.
Hodgkinson was charged in April 2006 with battery and aiding damage to a motor vehicle, according to online records in St. Clair County, Illinois. The charges were dismissed, records show.
According to The Week, restaurant owner Charles Orear knows Hodgkinson through work they did together in Iowa on Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign. Orear described Hodgkinson as “more on the really progressive side of things,“ as well as being “a quiet guy” and “very mellow, very reserved.”
While police have refused to confirm whether the attack was politically motivated, Hodgkinson’s Facebook page seems to indicate he was a Bernie fan and didn’t particularly care for Donald Trump, to put it mildly.
“I want to say Mr. President, for being an ass hole you are Truly the Biggest Ass Hole We Have Ever Had in the Oval Office.”
The attack might not be politically motivated (doubtful), but it would be naive to claim that political affiliations have no influence on criminal tendencies. Especially in an era when the media sensationalizes everything Trump does as the end of the world and openly refuses to condemn the suggestion assassinating of a sitting U.S. president.
And the countdown to the discussion of guns being the main problem in 5…4…3…2…
