U.S. He is not the first young man to shoot innocent victims at close range, using war weapons facilitated by the system of "liberties" and "self-defense" that prevails for years in the United States.
The murderer of at least 19 children and two adults in a Texas nursery school is a young man from 18 years. His name was Salvador Ramos, former student of the same school, to which he returned with two rifles, before he shot his grandmother.
On your Instagram account, in a picture, published four days before the attack on the school, two semi-automatic shotguns can be seen with the magazine attached. The gunman bought his guns immediately after serving 18 years last 16 of May, reported by a senator from the State of Texas.
Also an excerpt from a dialogue that a young woman published yesterday, minutes after learning of the Robb Elementary School massacre. The conversation started last Thursday, and they didn't know each other. Last Friday, Salvador shared a photo of two rifles with this girl. “What do your guns have to do with me?”, she asked, to which he responded with a cryptic: “i'm about to do it. I'll tell you before 11. There's a little secret I'd like to tell you”.
But something is clear: this is another carefully studied massacre, premeditated. An eighteen year old becomes a murderer, ready to also give his life. savior killed 19 children and two adults before being killed by the police.
It will be up to investigators to piece together an obviously gun-obsessed personality., with the chargers, as a last resort, with the violence. Perhaps a disturbed personality with mental problems, Or maybe just intoxicated by the poisons of our time, by the conspiracy theories that flow undisturbed on social media.
Salvador Ramos was a lonely young man who was bullied as a child because he had speech difficulties and because of his family's difficult financial situation., according to US media.
Santos Valdez Jr.. He has assured the Washington Post that he and Salvador were friends until “his behavior began to deteriorate”. He assures that one day he appeared with a face full of cuts: “He told me that he had cut his face with knives over and over again for fun.”.
Unfortunately, this is an all too common profile in a country where prevention and assistance networks for people in difficulty are practically non-existent. There are still not enough elements to understand if Salvador wanted “punish” to the Latino community, immigrants, of which perhaps, judging by the last name, was also part.
President Joe Biden, visibly upset and distressed, called for new restrictions on the possession of firearms, begged to take action to address gun violence after years of failure, and bitterly blamed gunmakers and their supporters for preventing legislation from passing Congress.
“When in God's name will we resist gun industry lobbyists?”, Biden expressed, visibly shaken. “Why are we willing to live with this violence? Why do we keep letting this happen?”.
