Live 5 News describes itself as the “The Low Country’s News Leader.” We’re now a week removed from a quadruple homicide for which they filed the following report:
“CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – An incident report released in a quadruple homicide Saturday morning at a home in Charleston County describes the scene investigators found when they arrived.
“The coroner’s office identified the victims as 72-year-old Joseph Manigault, 69-year-old Rose Manigault, 42-year-old Kenya Manigault and 15-year-old Faith Manigault.
“All were listed as being from Mount Pleasant, though their home is outside of the city limits in an unincorporated part of Charleston County.”
“The Manigault’s grandson, 22-year-old Lovequawn Matthew Shaire Scott, was arrested on Saturday for their deaths and charged with four counts of murder.”
So why has the national mainstream media been silent about this tragedy. After all, my liberal friends always tell me “if it bleeds it leads.”
Well, not so much if any of these three factors are involved – Hillary’s corruption, Obama’s corruption, and mass murder that doesn’t include guns.
From Live 5 News, again:
“The four victims all died from blunt trauma, according to Charleston County Deputy Coroner Kimberly Rhoton.”
There’s nothing in this story to advance the MSM’s gun confiscation jihad. In fact, the opposite is true.
First, even if the victims had summoned the police to their rural home immediately upon Lovequawn wielding his weapon, the police would’ve taken – at least – minutes to respond when seconds mattered.
Second, if every one of the victims had a concealed weapon the carnage could’ve been contained. And, if the assailant knew his victims were all armed he might’ve thought twice about even entering the house with malice in his plans.
Third, the common denominator between this mass murder and others committed is mental illness not firearms.
I’ve said it many times before and no number of pimple faced kids who have been used as tools by our government’s indoctrination centers – aka public schools – will change my mind:
If they want my guns they’ll have to take them from my cold, dead hands.
