10 Americans Killed by Gun Violence on May 4, 2016, Including 2 in Texas Workplace Shooting
May 4, 2016
Tens of thousands of Americans are killed every year in domestic and workplace gun violence, tens of thousands more are injured, all of that is for the benefit of the gun industry, and indirectly for the benefit of the war industry, which promotes the violent American culture.
Politicians and the Zionist media are dead silent about this continuous holocaust, which is perpetrated against the American people on daily basis. However, they wait for a rare gun shooting incident perpetrated by a Muslim, then they repeat mentioning it, as incitement against Muslim Americans, ignoring the continuous American holocaust, which is perpetrated by non-Muslims.
The objective is to justify the continuous wars and invasions of the Muslim World since 1990, in order for the war industry beneficiaries to justify the enormous and unprecedented US national debt, which has reached more than $19 trillion, as a result of the military spending.
For example, in 2015, there were 53,228 shooting incidents, resulting in the killing of 13,415 Americans. Of these, there were only two incidents perpetrated by Muslims and resulting in the killing of 18 Americans.
The Zionist media, like Fox News and CNN, together with politicians like Trump, kept mentioning these two incidents while totally ignoring the other 53,226 incidents, which resulted in the killing of 13,398 Americans!
The American people are indeed actual victims of a continuous warmongering campaign, Islamophobia, and a daily holocaust, perpetrated against them by the war industry beneficiaries and their agents in the media and politics.
For a background, read:
Ten Americans were killed by gun violence on May 4, 2016. Of these, three were killed in Florida, two in Texas The other five were killed in Pennsylvania, Washington State, Kentucky, Arizona, and Alabama.
During the first four months of 2016, there were 4,440 Americans who were killed by other Americans in gun violence.
In 2015, there were 13,415 Americans who were killed by other Americans in gun violence.
In 2014, there were 12,588 Americans who were killed by other Americans in gun violence.
Here's just one of the stories of the thousands of shootings in the U.S., which led to the killing of Americans for the benefit of the gun and war industry.
Victim, suspect identified in Katy workplace shooting
Employees at Knight Transportation are in shock and disbelief over Wednesday mornings shootings.
KHOU.com Staff , KHOU 10:15 PM. EST May 04, 2016
HARRIS COUNTY, TEXAS - An ex-employee walked into a Katy-area business and fatally shot one worker before killing himself, Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman says.
The victim has been identified as Michael Dawid.
Police have identified the suspect, now deceased, as 65-year-old Marion Guy Williams.
Marion Guy Williams
It happened before 9 a.m. Wednesday at Knight Transportation on Franz Road, west of Houston.
Sheriff Hickman says Williams was fired two weeks ago but returned to the business with two weapons. He allegedly fired several shots while approaching the building and then entered the business where he fired more shots, killing Dawid.
"He apparently became disgruntled because his payments had ceased, we understand he came to this location with a shotgun and a handgun," said Ralph Gonzales with HCSO. "He came into the building and said something like 'you ruined my life' and then fired a round straight through the building and then started shooting."
He then turned a weapon on himself, Hickman says.
Raw video: Views of shooting scene from Air 11
The crime happened around 8:45 a.m. across the street from Morton Ranch High School, forcing Katy ISD Police to place nearby schools on lockdown.
Katy ISD says the situation was under control, and classes are returning to normal. Parents were being asked to stay away from the scene as police were still blocking nearby roads.
Views from Air 11 showed more than a dozen police vehicles and a couple ambulances around the property.
Hickman says Harris County Pct. 5, Texas Rangers, Katy Police and Katy ISD Police all responded to assist; the sheriff's office is handling the investigation.
Knight Transportation offers truck and trailer sales across the country, according to its website.
KHOU 11 spoke to two employees off-camera who said the office is small and everybody knows everybody. The employees said the suspect worked at the office for at least two years. They said they knew the man was getting laid off, but they didn't know why.
Co-workers said the shooter was a quiet man who kept to himself.
Knight Transportation released a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying:
It is with deep sadness that we confirm a shooting at our Katy, Texas facility, and the death of a Knight Transportation employee. Our deepest sympathies are with the family during this difficult time. This was the action of a lone former employee, who also died as a result of today’s events. One other employee was confirmed to have injuries, and was treated at the scene and released. We appreciate the quick response of authorities and are closely monitoring the situation. Knight is doing everything possible to ensure the safety of all of its employees. Counselors will be on site to support our employees. We have suspended all work at our Katy facility pending completion of the investigation.
