Many stories have come about from the horrible Charleston shooting. Did you have memories a horrible church shooting in Louisiana? No? Let’s compare notes and see the results of major differences between the two shootings in 2006 and 2015. In case you have never heard about this church shooting, below is a copy from a transcript from CBS about the Louisiana shooting:
A man opened fire Sunday morning at a church hitting five people, four of them fatally before abducting his wife, whom he later shot to death at another location, authorities said.
The suspect, Anthony Bell, 25, of Baton Rouge, was captured at an apartment complex near the church. Three children abducted with the woman were all found safe.CBS affiliate WAFB reports that one of the shooting victims died after being transported to the hospital and the surviving victim is listed in critical condition. Police say two of those killed are females and one man, all older in age.
It was unclear whether Erica Bell, 24, was killed at the complex, police said. Her three children, including an infant, also taken from The Ministry of Jesus Christ church were found safe, officials said. Erica Bell’s mother, church pastor Claudia Brown, was wounded and was in serious condition at a hospital, police said, but would not provide further details. Jeffrey Howard said his mother had been shot in the back of the head.
Anthony Bell faces charges of murder, attempted murder and kidnapping. Investigators did not know the motive for the shooting at The Ministry of Jesus Christ church. “This is senseless. This is a total waste of human life,” Leduff said.
Here are some of the differences between the shootings
- Media Coverage
- The Charleston shooting was plastered on every major and minor news network across the country within minutes after the shooting came to light. The Louisiana shooting hit local news and one or two major networks at best for a very short period. In fact, I never saw it on the news at all.
- Obviously Louisiana is further southwest of South Carolina
- Number of Injured and Deceased
- Charleston had 9 killed
- Louisiana had 5 killed
- The Ethnicity of the Shooter
- The Louisiana shooter was 25 at the time, and black
- The South Carolina shooter was 21 and white
The result of the Louisiana shooting was that the shooter was caught and imprisoned.
The result of the South Carolina shooting is the ban from selling the Confederate Battle flag from 7 major companies, defacement of multiple confederate monuments, and the President who will likely renew his push on gun control. By the way, the President is going to preside over the funerals of the deceased.
Do you see a difference? To us here at Guns’N’Freedom, a shooter is a bad guy that needs to be shot by a church member in self defense. But, as you can see from the facts above, political agendas including anti-gun groups will use any hot topic issue including the pain and suffering of those lost to get their own way.
