Totally 100% Random Easter Shooting

Star Beacon:

Children screamed in terror and hid under the pews at Hiawatha Church of God in Christ on Sunday, witnesses said, as an Ashtabula man was shot and killed by his son just after the Easter service.


“Witnesses at the scene said the shooter entered church and made some references to Allah, but we are not sure if that was a motive or if there was a family problem, Stell said. “We have no motive confirmed with family members. There is no indication that the father and son had a bad relationship. Everyone thinks this was very surprising.”

The suspect Reshad Riddle's facebook account is here. Googling the profile name brings up a reference to Genesis, Cain and Able for one.

It appears he is a jailhouse revert to Islam and also gangsta.

Reshad Riddle’s Facebook wall is private, but several photo links with comments are visible publicly. In those comments, Reshad Riddle mentions God, Allah and the Bible. Ten hours before the shooting, Reshad Riddle commented on his own horoscope, “Is skripture into flesh, As they kame before me.”

At the same time, Reshad Riddle also posted a photo about getting mad with the note “They bout to find out how real” with the word “scripture” and several numbers.

Hat Tip: Sooper Mexican.

1 Sounds like mental illness. Anyone who says "keeping it real" or a variant like “They bout to find out how real” is a sick mind.
"Reshad Riddle entered the church,
still carrying the gun and yelling

that the shooting was “the will of
Allah. This is the will of God,”

Adams said."
Yup, that's crazy talk.

2 Also for your purview. Chicago had 23 shootings this weekend. Seems that the more gun control laws you have, the more shootings you have as well. Living in Chicago like living in a combat zone in a lot of neighbrohoods. I guess that makes them eligible for assault weapons.

3 Interesting note that he attempted to cut the throat of his g/f. It's what we frequently hear and see from the Jihadists.

4 The father was a Christian who refused to accept Allah as his son demanded. Therefore the son believed it was the will of Allah that he kill his infidel father. Peace be upon him.
By the way. The son has an extensive criminal record so it's far more than likely he received his instruction and converted to Islam is prison. Islam's most productive recruiting ground. Conversion is easy when you have been locked up by Whitey as whitey equals Christian.
When will we ever learn that while the Constitution guarantees religious freedom it doesn't guarantee the right of hate groups to indoctrinate felons while hiding under the cover of religion.

5 Maybe the shooter was a white supremacist?

6 About as much chance that Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan are white supremacists.

But yes I expect MSNBC to report the same.

7 Ever notice the connection between hate whitey and islamic conversions among blacks in America? White hating black racists seem to have found a home in Islam. This could and probably will be a major problem in the future. It's called Civil disobedience for want of a better word. I call it rioting at a moment most useful for the enemies of America.

9 Someone who seeks to be a slave to Satan is by definition crazy.

How much more peaceful would the WHOLE World be if all muslims were lobotomized ???

10 The most recent news report states that Reshad Riddle was preaching from the pulpit, calling the people in the church "hypocrites", or munafiq in Arabic, which is another charge frequently used by Islamists and jihadists against infidels.

Unfortunately, most of the press coverage of this incident is dismissing his preaching as "shouting" or saying "crazy" things; we need to know exactly what those "crazy" things are in order to be sure that this incident was, in fact, some type of jihad relate killing.
