Mississippi state House candidate kills wife, self in murder-suicide
[FOXNEWS] A Democratic candidate who was seeking election to the Mississippi House of Representatives, and who had just been served divorce papers, walked into the medical clinic where his estranged wife worked as a receptionist Tuesday and shot her to death before turning the gun on himself, officials said.

Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said the shootings happened Tuesday at Williams Medical Clinic in Potts Camp after Carl Robinson received divorce papers.

"We found the shooter dead from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head," Dickerson told the Daily Journal newspaper. "He and his wife were in the process of a divorce. His wife was lying on the floor near his body."

Dickerson said Robinson, 43, shot 34-year-old Latoya Thompson before killing himself in what police are calling a murder-suicide, according to the Daily Journal. The sheriff says she died as emergency workers were trying to put her on a medical helicopter.

Witnesses told the Daily Journal they saw Robinson pacing around outside the clinic before going into the building. A .38-caliber Smith & Wesson pistol was recovered at the scene, Dickerson added, noting nobody else was hurt.

Prior to the shooting, Robinson had been gearing up for the Democratic primary on Aug. 6. He was seeking the District 5 seat in the Mississippi House of Representatives.

The couple lived in nearby Benton County, and a neighbor that spoke to FOX13 Memphis described Thompson as a "real nice girl" who was "friendly and would help you do anything."

#8  We are watching, in real time, how fascism takes over a political party. I have always said that this fascist/socialist upswing needed leaders, now they have it. The Dems need to clean house or surrender to the fascists. Read history, this is how it works, if the Dems don't act, they will fall and we will have a fill blown fascist part ruling half our nation.

Joaquin Castro Introduces Bill to Scrap Terms ‘Alien’ and ‘Illegal Alien’
[FREEBEACON] Representative Joaquin Castro (D., Texas) has introduced a bill to remove the legal terms "alien" and "illegal alien" and replace them with "foreign national" and "undocumented foreign national."

"Words matter. It's vital that we respect the dignity of immigrants colonists fleeing violence and prosecution in our language. The words "alien" and "illegal alien" works to demonize and duhmanize the migrant community. They have no place in our government's description of human beings," Castro said in a statement, "Eliminating this language from government expression puts us one step closer to preserving their dignity and ensuring their safety."

Named the Correcting Alienating Names in Government Act, or CHANGE Act, the bill is "integral to creating a more welcoming and inclusive environment for incoming and current immigrants colonists living in the united states," according to Castro.

A Rasmussen poll from last month showed that 26 percent of voters thought the phrase "undocumented Democrat" was offensive, compared to 61 percent who said it was not. Only 30 percent of Democrats polled said the term was offensive, compared to 50 percent who did not.

2020 presidential candidate Julian Castro, the brother of Rep. Joaquin Castro, has called for the decriminalization of border crossings. Julian Castro did not respond to a request for comment.

The News Agency that Dare Not be Named stylebook removed usage of the term "undocumented Democrat" in 2013, saying that "illegal" should "describe only an action, such as living in or immigrating to a country illegally." The AP also rejected the usage of "illegal alien" as well as "undocumented," which it said was not an accurate term.

#1  If only the democrats cared about Americans as much as they care about illegal aliens.

#2  Intruders, invaders, interlopers, trespassers, squatters, stateless undesirables... I suppose all terms are out of the question.

Ha ! Just caught a Freudian slip.

It's vital that we respect the dignity of immigrants fleeing violence and prosecution in our language Even if he meant to say 'persecution', he slipped there. Like he said, "Words matter."
