Shooting in Alexandria

As always happens in the immediate aftermath of something like this, there is a lot of disinformation out there. For now, we just pray for the victims and their families.

A US Republican politician and aides have been shot during baseball practice in Virginia, US reports say.

Police in the upmarket Washington DC suburb of Alexandria said they were investigating a “multiple shooting” and a suspect was in custody.


Local media report there is a major police presence after the attack.

Senator Mike Lee, a Utah Republican, texted Fox News to say that Mr Scalise had been shot in the hip and would survive.

He said someone had used a belt as a tourniquet on him.

Mr Lee said the shooter had used a long gun and was dead.

    Looks like those compassionate left of center folks that preach we should all coexist and tolerate opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with but if you are part of the Facebook group “Terminate the Republican Party”, it is OK to shoot innocent people at a baseball practice because they might be Republicans.

    “Tolerant liberals”….that is funny, like “Christian abortionist”.

    “it is OK to shoot innocent people at a baseball practice because they might be Republicans.”  Same mindset as running over innocent tourists on a bridge because they might not be devout Muslims or advocating killing our President because they disagree.  It is still the same sick hate mongers that should be treated as one would any rabid dog.
