Active shooting incidents at houses of worship more frequent than “health facilities” like Planned Parenthood

According to a 2014 report from the FBI, more active shooter incidents occurred at houses of worship than health care facilities and none at abortion clinics. This is in complete contrast to the way the media is reporting on a 2015 shooting which occurred at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood.

FBI Active shooter 2013

The FBI report released in September of 2014, looked at 160 active shooter incidents that occurred between 2000 and 2013 throughout the U.S. It comes on the heels of several weeks of skewed media reporting claiming pro-life “rhetoric” prompted a lone and deranged shooter at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood November 27, 2015, which left three people dead and nine injured. As tragic as any act of violence is, the media and the abortion industry is attempting to portray violence at abortion clinics such as Planned Parenthood as a regular occurrence, something the FBI study disputes. To date, authorities investigating the 2015 shooting incident have not publicly commented on the motives of the shooter, Robert Lewis Dear who now faces first degree murder charges. Pro-life groups nationwide have condemned the act.

According to the FBI, between 2000 – 2013, shooters at health care facilities were outnumbered by shootings in all other categories. The largest percentage of incidents—45.6 percent—took place in a commercial environment (73 incidents), followed by 24.3 percent that took place in an educational environment (39 incidents). The remaining incidents occurred at the other location types with the lowest percentage being health care facilities, and of those, none were Planned Parenthood or abortion centers.

The FBI identified 11 separate incident location categories which included commercial areas (divided into malls, businesses open to pedestrian traffic, and businesses closed to pedestrian traffic), educational environments (divided into schools [pre-kindergarten through 12th grade] and Institutes of Higher Education), open spaces, government properties (divided into military and other government properties), residences, houses of worship, and health care facilities. Shooting incidents broke down as follows:

    Businesses, Open to pedestrian traffic, 27.5% (44)
    Schools (Pre-K to 12), 16.9% (27)
    Businesses, Closed to pedestrian traffic, 14.4% (23)
    Open Space, 9.4% (15)
    Institutions of Higher Education 7.5%, (12)
    Other Government Properties, 6.9% (11)
    Residences, 4.4% (7)
    Malls, 3.8% (6)
    Houses of Worship, 3.8% (6)
    Military,3.1% (5)
    Health Care Facilities, 2.5% (4)

Although houses of worship outnumbered shootings at health care facilities, as did all other location categories, the media wants the public to believe that women seeking “health care” at abortion clinics are at great risk of “anti-abortion violence.” Yet, according to the document none of the shootings at what the FBI classified as a “health care facility” took place at an abortion or Planned Parenthood center as summarized below:

Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center
On March 29, 2009, at 10:00 a.m., Robert Kenneth Stewart, 45, armed with a handgun, a shotgun, and a rifle, began shooting in the Pinelake Health and Rehabilitation Center in Carthage, North Carolina, where his estranged wife worked. He did not find her. Eight people were killed; three were wounded, including one police officer. The shooter was apprehended after being wounded during an exchange of gunfire with police.

Parkwest Medical Center
On April 19, 2010, at 4:30 p.m., Abdo Ibssa, 38, armed with a handgun, began shooting in the Parkwest Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. He had been distressed over the out-come of his recent surgery and was trying to find his doctor, who he believed had implanted a microchip in him. When he was unable to find the doctor, he moved to the emergency room and began shooting. One person was killed; two were wounded. The shooter committed suicide before police arrived.

St. Vincent’s Hospital
On December 15, 2012, at 4:00 a.m., Jason Heath Letts, 38, armed with a handgun, began shooting in St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. No one was killed; three were wounded, including one police officer. The shooter was killed by police.

Renown Regional Medical Center
On December 17, 2013, at 2:00 p.m., Alan Oliver Frazier, 51, armed with a shotgun and two handguns, began shooting in the Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nevada. One person was killed; two were wounded. The shooter committed suicide at the scene after police arrived.

While it is true that the Colorado Springs shooting tragically had a large number of victims, it is also true that the media fails to report shootings at other medical facilities with the same emphasis as they did the Planned Parenthood incident. An interesting look at this comparison is detailed at the blog Saynsumthn here.

The 4 shooting incidents at health care facilities outlined above resulted in 10 killed and 10 wounded (including 2 law enforcement officers). The 6 incidents in houses of worship resulted in 21 people killed and 27 wounded (including 1 law enforcement officer), according to the FBI study. One of those incidents involved late term abortionist George Tiller.

Left-Wing Daily Kos put Bulls Eye “Target” on Rep. Giffords in 2008

H/T HillBuzz

The Radically Left-Wing Daily Kos is accusing Sarah Palin of being responsible for the climate that led to the attempted murder of Rep. Giffords in Arizona. The reason: Palin’s use of the symbol “Target” .

But….The Daily Kos has now removed this post:

But…what the media will NOT report is how Left-Wing Daily Kos placed a TARGET on Rep. Giffords and others in June of 2008:

And the Daily Kos is a website often used by left-wing politicians like: Barack Obama

Added- Jan 10, 2011

Also in 2008, this is what Obama said he would do to counter Republican attacks “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Friday night. “Because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”

Then in November of 2010- Obama said Latino’s should “Punish their enemies”

Arizona shooter labeled “Left-Wing nut Job” by bloggers

A man gunned down Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and at least 17 other people, six of whom were killed, during a the congresswoman’s meet-and-greet Saturday with constituents outside a supermarket in Tucson.

Among the dead were U.S. District Judge John M. Roll and a 9-year-old girl.

The suspect, identified by a federal source as Jared Lee Loughner, 22, was in custody Saturday after being tackled by two people at the scene of the shooting. The gunman may not have acted alone, Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik said.

Left-wingers are blaming the Tea Party because the victim was a democrat but….

Gateway Pundit has an interesting blog detailing the shooters nutty ideas

among them are these alleged tweets from a friend of Loughner who said he is Left Wing:

As for his odd YouTube manifesto of sorts he wrote:
“All humans are in need of sleep.
Jared Laughner is a human.
Hence, Jared Loughner is in need of sleep.”
He continues saying:
“All conscience dreaming at this moment is asleep.
Jared Loughner is conscience dreaming at this moment.
Thus Jared Laughner is asleep.”
He wraps up his rambling by saying,
“In conclusion, reading the second United States Constitution. I can’t trust the current government because of the ratifications. The government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar.
No! I won’t pay debt with a currency that’s not backed by gold and silver!
No! I won’t trust in God!”
You can check out his You Tube channel if you’d like right here.

Among his long list of favorite books in his YouTube profile are Mein Kampf, The Communist Manifesto, Siddhartha.

Business Insider is reporting that A woman named Caitie Parker has been tweeting that she went to school with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ alleged shooter Jared Loughner and that he had met Giffords previously.

Also,” he was a pot head & into rock like Hendrix,The Doors, Anti-Flag. I haven’t seen him in person since ’07 in a sign language class” and “As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal. & oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy.”

Loughner also “favorited” just one video on YouTube, which shows the burning of an American flag and is accompanied by an anti-government screed. A sample from that screed:

If there’s no flag in the constitution then the flag in the film is unknown.
There’s no flag in the constitution.
Therefore, the flag in the film is unknown.
Burn every new and old flag that you see.
Burn your flag!
I bet you can imagine this in your mind with a faster speed.
Watch this protest in reverse!
Ask the local police; “What’s your illegal activity on duty?”.
If you protest the government then there’s a new government from protesting.
There’s not a new government from protesting.
Thus, you aren’t protesting the government.

KTLA is reporting One former high school friend Tweeted about knowing the accused gunman:

He was a pot head and into rock, like Hendrix, The Doors, Anti-Flag,” she wrote. “I haven’t seen him in person since 2007 in a sign language class. As I knew him he was left wing, quite liberal and oddly obsessed with the 2012 prophecy. He had a lot of friends until he got alcohol poisoning in 2006 and dropped out of school. Mainly a loner, very philosophical.”

The New York Times is reporting that school administrators called in Mr. Loughner’s parents to tell them that their son had been suspended and would have to get a mental health evaluation to return to college. Instead, he dropped out in October.

Grant Wiens, 22, who graduated in 2006 from Mountain View High School, a year ahead of Mr. Loughner, described him as “a kind of rare bird, very shy.”

Mr. Wiens said that something Mr. Loughner said during a discussion about religion had stuck in his mind: “Whatever happens, happens,” Mr. Wiens recalled the suspect saying. “Might as well enjoy life now.”

The NY Times also reports that his YouTube page also listed a series of favorite books. Some were novels about political dystopias — including “Animal Farm” by George Orwell and “Brave New World” by eugenics supporter Aldous Huxley. Others were about falling into fantasy worlds — like “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass” by Lewis Carroll.

USA Today reports that neighbors said they were shocked by the shooting. They described Loughner as a loner and outcast with a tendency to dress in all-black “goth-type clothes.”

Many of the news outlets and blogs are reporting that Loughner rambled about how few people in his district spoke English….for the record, you might also be interested to know that there are MANY board member of the anti-immigration movement from the left wing, pro-abortion, eugenics founded Planned Parenthood organization.

And let’s not forget the recent murders by enviro-wacko, left wing killer of the Discovery Center- obsessed with overpopulation, I found it odd how quickly those connections and allegations died down connections here: ( Read Police Report here)
