Sad if it's true but could have been just murder for murders sake.

Sickening.

But they would probably have done the same for any other reason where they felt the wife was 'disrespected.'

Witnesses at the store told police that Munerlyn got into a verbal altercation with a woman because she was not wearing a mask, said Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton. Surveillance video confirms the incident, Leyton said.

Under an executive order from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, all retail employees and customers have to wear a mask.

Footage also shows that immediately after the altercation, the woman left in an SUV.
But about 20 minutes later, the SUV returned.

Two men entered the store and one of them yelled at Munerlyn about disrespecting his wife, Leyton said. The other man then shot the security guard.

First we all know Michigan is a powder keg over this lockdown and coronavirus issue. Remember several days ago gunman stormed their state capital. Michigan in general is sharply divided and violence is just waiting to happen up there at this point.

Also worth noting where in Michigan we are talking about. This is not the woods of northern Michigan or a nice city like Grand Rapids or Suburban Detroit, this is Flint we are talking about. You remember the place you cannot drink the water? Flint Michigan is literally the worst place in the United States. Crime poverty and decay are everywhere. It is the most depressing place in the country. Yes they are saying this is a coronavirus related crime but usually these people need no excitatory rob someone. It is just what people in fling do.

Just read this tweet and the replies to it. SMH at those that are blaming the protesters at the State House, Trump and white nationalists.

Why can't people just stop and accept responsibility for their actions instead of blaming others?

I won't post the link because we don't allow soliciting here but, there is a page on a popular donation raising site for this man's family. They were hoping to get enough to lay him to rest. Even in this time Corona people are still generous.

$167,273 raised of $10,000 goal

Its funny how the foreign press often has more details than domestic news.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ity-guard.html

I always hated those women who run off at the mouth.....then go get their boyfriends or brothers involved. Often times the people these women go get....end up getting killed instead of the target. To bad it could not have been the case this time. Was it worth it? Does she feel regret now.

The less you look towards the future with hope and optimism, the more you present choices are going to be destructive. When you just "live for the day". Acts like this makes perfect sense to the people committing them. They are not ruining their future because they see no future.

They didn't give their citizens clean water and threaten them with arrest if they don't wear a mask? Can't say I'm too sympathetic.
