So It Wasn’t Just Tsarnaev

Remember when Bloomberg’s clueless, thoughtless, statist group of petty criminals and thugs read of a list of victims of gun violence in Concord the other day, and included the name of the Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a victim of gun violence?

Well, Buzzfeed reports he wasn’t the only scumbag on that list.

But the list from which the activists were reading — which was compiled by Slate and includes more than 6,000 names — contained at least 10 murder suspects, including the alleged cop killer Christopher Dorner, who was the subject of a massive, high-profile manhunt in February, and apparently killed himself in a cabin after a gun fight with police.

But the list of scumbags doesn’t end there…

Rick Odell Smith, who was killed in a shootout with police in Manchester, Illinois after he allegedly broke into an apartment and shot six people with a shotgun.

Kurt Myers, who was killed by police in Herkimer, New York after firing on them, and allegedly killing four people a day earlier. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo commended the police who took Myers down for “ending this horrific spree of violence and bloodshed.”

James L. Gilkerson, who was killed after opening fire on police officers in Middlefield, Ohio. After further investigation, law enforcement officials began referring to Gilkerson as a “terrorist” and said they believed he was planning a large-scale attack.

Jeremy Peter Goulet, who was killed by police in Santa Cruz, California after allegedly murdering two police detectives.

Anthony James Galla, who was killed in a shootout with police in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania at the end of a manhunt that was prompted by his suspected involvement in another shooting.

Esteban J. Smith, a former Marine who allegedly stabbed and killed his wife before going on a “shooting rampage,” and was killed in a shootout with police in Elden, Texas.

Emmanuel Gatewood and Kourtney Hahn, murder suspects who were killed together in a shootout with police in Columbus, Ohio.

MAIG spokesholes once again apologized profusely for this… ahem… oversight.

But frankly, apologies aren’t enough here. This essentially shows MAIG for its complete lack of consideration for victims, and its intent to use very real, very tragic deaths to further their political goals – and nothing more. The carelessness hows a callous disregard – an attitude that says, “We’ll just read this extensive list off – the more the better – look at all those names!” without thought to who these people were.

In other words, it’s not about the children or the innocent victims. It’s about the clownery, drama and stage show that comes with reading names – not honoring people, but reading names.
