From the AP / 04.05.2016:
A man charged with fatally shooting one neighbor and injuring two others repeatedly disrupted his first court appearance, telling a judge “God’s got this.”
Kevin Lee Lyons, 46, faces charges of first-degree murder in the Monday afternoon attack on a residential street in suburban Denver. The Denver Post reports Lyons talked over a judge during a Tuesday hearing, where he was ordered jailed without bond.
Lyons’ public defender raised doubts about his mental health.
Suspected mental health issues? You can bet everything you have that if this had been a Muslim saying “Allah’s got this”, there would screaming and pointing by Republicans nationwide.
Donald Trump and Ted Cruz would seize upon the opportunity as an example for more fear-mongering in their next debate, if Trump ever agrees to one.
If we’re going to call a Muslim who does this a radical Islamist, then we must say the same of Christians who do it – radical Christianists.
