The parents of an armed robber shot by a Pizza Hut employee are asking “why?”
They’re asking why their son was shot by a restaurant worker, rather than law enforcement.
They’re asking why the employee had a gun.
They’re asking why their son was shot in the head.
The answers are short and sweet.
- The reason why their son was shot by a restaurant worker rather than law enforcement is because law enforcement wasn’t on the scene.
- The reason why the employee had a gun is because vermin like their spawn exists.
- The reason he was shot in the head is because he was carrying a handgunduring the commission of a crime (edited to add) which was recovered at the scene.
Mommy dearest claims the shooting was personal because Michael Grace, Jr. was shot in the head.
Why does it matter? This scum and two of his friends walked into a restaurant armed and tried to rob the place. Period. It doesn’t matter if the shooting was personal or not. Had he not been in there waving around a pistol, the wouldn’t have been shot. Not in the leg. Not in the head. Not anywhere.
Mommy dearest claims her spawn wouldn’t have hurt anyone. The very fact that he had a gun negates that claim.
She claims he’d fallen on hard times and turned to crime to provide for his child. You know… As a kid, I remember my parents hunting through other people’s trash for clothing, furniture, and other necessities. Not once did they grab a gun and try to rob a restaurant! I wonder why that is! Perhaps because despite our financial difficulties, my parents are decent people who would never dream of committing an act of violence against another human being or taking by force what was not theirs?
What did these parents teach their spawn?
That his “rights” included treating others as prey? That he was entitled to assets that did not belong to him? That his need and “desperation” were claim checks to other people’s earnings?
Their son died as a predator. He walked into a peaceable establishment and tried to make prey out of the employees there. And unfortunately for him, one of his intended prey decided “Not today, motherfucker.”
His “rights” ended with the muzzle of his gun pointed at another human being.
Parents like these are why we can’t have nice things.
And the Twitterverse loses its collective shit.
It really is beautiful to watch. The Senate today rejected four gun control bills that were proposed in the wake of the Orlando massacre, including one that would have relieved some Americans of their rights without due process.
The first, sponsored by Grassley, would have called for research on the causes of mass shootings and increased funding for the background check system, although it would not have expanded the types of gun sales that require them.
The second, sponsored by Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would have expanded background check requirements to include private sales and sales over the Internet.
The third, sponsored by Cornyn, would allow federal law enforcement officials to delay gun sales to suspected terrorists, including those on watch and no-fly lists, for three days and then halt the sales, but only after proving probable cause before a judge.
The final amendment, sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., would have allowed the attorney general to halt sales to suspected terrorists and allow individuals to appeal to the Department of Justice if they are denied a firearm.
Causes of mass shootings… hmmmmm… that’s what we need to spend taxpayer dollars on when our debt levels are more than 100 percent of GDP? Research on why evil exists?
Murphy, who bathed in the barely cooled blood of innocent victims and did a dance on top of their dead bodies by leading a badly-timed, classless filibuster on the Senate floor in the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack, stuttered and stammered, but finally admitted his bill would have done nothing to stop Orlando, Newtown, or any other monstrous act.
That third one, by the way, was supported by the NRA. Thanks a lot, jerks. I’m sure that young woman being stalked and threatened by a violent ex, who despite having no connection to terrorism whatsoever, and who winds up on the useless no-fly list along with that toddler, will be thrilled to know that she has to wait three days, hoping her assailant doesn’t find her, until she’s proven she’s worthy enough to exercise her right to purchase a tool of self defense!
And the final one to me was the most odious, since it assumes guilt, and it puts the onus on the individual to prove his or her innocence. That noxious hag Feinstein admitted exactly that in this video.
Screw your due process! Screw your innocent until proven guilty! We want gun control!
Well, luckily all the bills failed, and Twitter’s response was glorious!
Celebricunts gnashed teeth and left froth-flecked, 140-character, oh-so-profound ruminations on the subject.
The Senate rejected all four gun control measures that were up for consideration on Monday. Fuck you, Senate.

Politicians engaged in hyperbole so ridiculous, one had to check to make sure it wasn’t petulant toddlers screeching how mommy was the worst mommy in the world, because she didn’t make cookies instead of adults debating critical national policy.

Idiot news whores blamed the NRA, because NRA won, even though the amendment they supported that would deprive those on the no-fly list, nearly half of whom have nothing to do with terrorism, of their rights for three days didn’t pass.
After gun votes Dem FL Sen Nelson she would have to tell Orlando victims & families of those murdered that “the NRA won again.”

And some dimwitted, emaciated, screeching twat displayed her contempt for basic human rights.
@SpartanGrp shut the fuck up with your due process..

I won’t take apart policy tonight, because frankly, it’s been done and overdone. Y’all know where I stand.
I will not support hysterical attempts to relieve me of my rights.
I will not support reactionary, unconstitutional legislation that aims to infringe on the rights of every American who didn’t commit the latest atrocity
I refuse to acknowledge uninformed calls for closing nonexistent “loopholes.”
I oppose attempts by the ignorant to tell me what I can or cannot purchase with the money I earn.
My mere possession of a specific type of firearm does not infringe on anyone’s rights – even imaginary ones like the right to FEEL safe.
Any right that requires government permission to exercise is not a right.
And any horror like the one that happened in Orlando makes me yet more determined to fight any effort to infringe on my rights and more determined to help whose who want to defend themselves.
Anything less would be an outright embarrassment to my life and my oath to my country.
I hate devoting any bandwidth to the violent monster who murdered 49 people in Orlando over the weekend, but I feel like something needs to be said about this fetid piece of shit as more and more details emerge about his life.
I wrote before about the crotch bomber and wondered how much hatred you had to harbor if you were really willing to set your own junk on fire as a weapon against your perceived enemy.
This Nigerian assflake was actually fanatical enough to concede to blowing up his own nuts in an effort to kill a few Americans on a plane! He either values his manhood very little (quite obvious by the fact that the cowardly sow humper committed himself to killing innocent civilians, including children), or he’d overslept on his way to the airport and his suppliers all ran out of suicide belts leaving him with the choice of exploding panties, or a dynamite dildo. Maybe he thinks his junk will be restored in heaven just in time to hump his 72 virgins. I don’t know. All I know is that if I were a man, there is nothing in this world I’d hate strongly enough to blow up my own crotch!
Now I wonder how much hatred did Omar Mateen have for himself to have committed a cowardly act of mass murder.
Let’s examine some bits of info that have come out.
1) Mateen was a violent wife abuser. According to his ex-wife, he was an unstable, violent man who would beat her up for no reason. “He beat me,” she told the press. “He would just come home and start beating me up because the laundry wasn’t finished or something like that.”
2) He was investigated for having terrorist ties by the FBI in 2013 and 2014, but they couldn’t find definitive ties to Islamic extremism or terrorism, so the investigation was closed.
3) One co-worker described him as a violent bigot.
4) And now, some news outlets are reporting that Mateen was, in fact, gay himself, and that he’d been a regular at Pulse, the club in which he committed his bloody mass murder, was trying to pick up men at the club, and even used a gay dating app to get dates.
Everything points to self loathing, as I look at the information gathered on him.
He hated the fact that he was gay, so he lashed out at gays. His own father said he got irate in Miami recently when he saw two guys being affectionate with one another.
He lashed out at his own wife – again probably out of self loathing, whether it was because he couldn’t be happy with a woman, or he wasn’t sexually attracted to her – and wanted to punish the object of his rage, since he wouldn’t punish himself.
He would frequent the gay club, drink by himself, and get belligerent with other club-goers once he got good and sloshed. If that doesn’t scream, “I’M GAY AND I HATE MYSELF FOR BEING GAY,” I don’t know what does!
How much bitterness and loathing do you really have to harbor to murder nearly 50 innocent people in cold blood? Perhaps in them, he saw something he could never have himself – a pride in who they were. That’s a hard thing to overcome – it’s a burning envy. All these people celebrating who they were, their courage, their ability to accept themselves and one another, while he sat alone in the dark and loathed the fact that he could not.
Now, I’m not saying all this to somehow downplay the Islamic terrorism angle. That aspect is still under investigation, and when I know more, I’ll certainly write about it. But as someone who is interested in motives and mindsets, I thought I’d bring another analysis to the table.
