American Gun Violence Holocaust:
1,468 Americans Killed, 2,647 Injured by Other Americans, in Gun Violence, During January 2017
February 4, 2017
All this is ignored by the war and gun industry agents in the media and politics, who only focus on spectacular mass shootings, particularly if they can make them appear related to terrorism.
They don't want to admit that the US has a major gun violence problem, caused basically by the continuous production and sales of all kinds of guns, and making them available to everybody who wants to buy them, even to mentally-ill people.
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, both of which promote violence in the United States.
Zionist-controlled politicians and 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 Muslims generally, and Muslim Americans in particular, ignoring the continuous American holocaust, which is perpetrated by non-Muslims.
The objective is to justify the continuous US 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 permanent-war 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 the war industry agents and Zionist-controlled politicians kept mentioning these two incidents while totally ignoring the other 53,226 incidents, which resulted in the killing of 13,398 Americans!
The end outcome is that 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.

Murder suspect shot dead: I-95 shootout follows high-speed chase

A South Carolina man suspected of murdering his mother early Friday morning was shot and killed by law enforcement officers hours later following a high-speed chase through the southern part of Robeson County.
Jamake Cason Thomas, 22, of Bennettsville, S.C., was shot and killed after a chase through the Maxton and Rowland areas of Robeson County and then after he drove northward into southbound traffic on Interstate 95. The chase, which lasted more than an hour, involved Robeson County sheriff’s deputies initially and then highway patrolmen.
Patrol Sgt. Michael Baker said several unsuccessful attempts were made to stop the vehicle before Thomas’ silver Nissan Altima was spun to a stop near Exit 7 on Interstate 95. Thomas reportedly exited the vehicle firing shots, was shot and died at the scene. No one else was injured.

According to Highway Patrol, the two officers involved were Trooper Douglas Strickland and Trooper Henry Locklear, both of whom have been placed on administrative duty, which is protocol for when officers are involved in shootings. The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the case, which is also protocol, and there will also be an internal investigation by the patrol.
Strickland, a nine-year veteran, and Locklear, a 12-year veteran, are both assigned to Robeson County.
Robeson County sheriff’s deputies did not fire any shots.
Thomas’ Altima showed visible evidence of an impact, and the driver’s side window had multiple gunshot holes.
According to the Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office, Thomas was the suspect in the murder of his mother. Tina Thomas, 42, was shot and killed at a home on Adamsville Road in Bennettsville, South Carolina, at about 2 a.m. Friday. A few hours after a 911 call was received regarding Thomas’ death, Marlboro County Sheriff Charles Lemon called Robeson County Sheriff Kenneth Sealey, telling him that Jamake Thomas might be in the Maxton area.
Sheriff’s Maj. Anthony Thompson said deputies saw the suspect vehicle and a chase began at a bout 7:15 a.m. Before the chase began, a woman exited Thomas’ car. It is unclear who the woman was. Thompson said highway patrolmen joined the chase, and at that time the deputies dropped out of the chase.
Traffic was backed up in both directions of Interstate 95 for several hours following the incident. Southbound I-95 traffic was diverted at Exit 7 so the crime scene could be preserved while an on-site investigation was done.
