  1. I read that story and would like to understand his motives. He has a biracial child and was married to a black woman. This is where society and the media don’t pay attention, something is amiss here. The chatter on social media is that he was always a racist but more information is needed to make that determination.

    • I am reading up on it. It seems he has mental illness and is very violent, including to his ex-wife, and his parents. I will post the link to the story here , it has a lot of info. I am going to read another article to see if it agrees. Hugs

      • It sounds like he did. Also, sounds like this was preventable if we had a healthcare system that helped people mental illness.
        Or a criminal justice system that took white violence seriously.

        “His father added that Mr. Bush carried a gun everywhere and had threatened to shoot both his parents in the head. β€œHe is dangerous,” the father said. β€œHe is paranoid. I want him to stay away.”

        After the altercation with his parents, Mr. Bush was ordered to surrender his weapon to the authorities. He was barred from possessing a weapon after at least one other domestic incident, court papers show.”

        How did he get a gun if he was barred from gun ownership? Looks like despite a history of domestic violence he was never convicted or served time in jail.

        • We have to spend more effort to fix both the mental health care and gun control. We have way too little mental health care and far too many guns everywhere. Hugs

  2. Reblogged this on Failure to Listen and commented:

    The following is a reblog from ScottiesToyBox.com. The story is about a divorced white man, Gregory Bush, who murdered two random black people who were shopping at Kroger’s. He was previously married to a black woman and has a biracial son. Shaun King tweeted and wrote an article published in The Intercept earlier in the week.

    It’s senseless racial violence IMO triggered by Trump’s reckless and irresponsible incendiary rhetoric that fan the flames of racial disharmony. It is happening all over America. White people are attacking black people and other ethnic groups using Trump’s rhetoric. Unfortunately, these racially motivated crimes are not getting national attention, media coverage and in many cases no criminal investigation or charges.
