Please join us in praying for the victims and their families in Sunday’s horrific tragedy in the Milwaukee suburb of Waukesha, where someone drove a red SUV at high speed through a police line and plowed into a Christmas parade. At least five people are known dead at this writing, and more than 40 injured, including children. This link from Fox News will have continually updated information:
Police have arrested a “person of interest.” I won’t give his name until it’s more official, but he’s a career criminal and registered sex offender with a history of resisting arrest, obstruction, battery, statutory sexual seduction, strangulation and suffocation, property destruction, illegal firearm possession, drug related charges, domestic violence and bail jumping. Despite that record, he was just released from jail two days ago on three misdemeanor and two felony charges after posting cash bail of just $1,000.
There were a number of disgusting comments from the left on social media, trying to tie the assault to the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict. It takes an awful lot of “not raised right” to use something like this to try to score cheap political points, but that’s how badly social media has eroded basic human decency. Many of the tweets were deleted after the arrest came, and the truth didn’t appear to be helpful to their cause at all. Sadly, some didn’t even have enough shreds of decency left to realize how awful they were being.
While we pray for the victims, we should also pray for a moral reawakening as well.
