I cannot possibly describe the emotions and thoughts I had when reading these two stories. I’ve two lovely daughters of my own. But, I still can’t even come close to imagining what Mr. Steinle went through and is going through, let alone Mrs. Steinle. But, I can tell you I hurt from it. And, I’m mad as hell.
This isn’t a unique story, insofar as we’ve allowed/invited career criminals into this land and we’ve groups of people, cities, states, and our own federal government who would harbor these maniacs. But, this event should bring the message home.
Folks, this is a real shot and chaser post.
Here’s story #1 ….
… When asked what Kate’s words were when she realized she had been shot, her father gave a gut wrenching response.
“Help me, dad,” Steinle described.
Story #2 ……
… “Has the administration reached out to the Steinle family, to your knowledge?” Rep. Steve Chabot asked Johnson.
“To who?” Johnson replied.
“To the family of the woman who brutally murdered by this individual who had committed seven different felonies in four different states and to my understanding had been deported, kept coming back, has the administration reached out to that family?” Chabot asked again.
“I’m sorry, I don’t know the answer to that question sir,” Johnson said. ….
…. “I wish someone would reach out to us,” Brad Steinle said during an interview on The Kelly File last night.
When the White House was asked last week to comment on the Kate Steinle case, Press Secretary Josh Earnest said comment on “this specific case” could not be issued and that reporters should refer to DHS for information. It turns out the guy who leads DHS has no clue about who Kate Steinle is. Again, a disgrace. (H/T JazzShaw)
I don’t cry. But, today, I cry. I’ve so many things to say about this, but, now, it wouldn’t be coherent. The only thing I can say is to ask God to help us. We so badly need it. And, to the dad’s out there, go hug and tell your children that you love them. And, then, go prepare to fight.
