|This is the home in which the attack took place.|
Multiple news outlets are reporting that three elderly Mennonite women (84-90) were attacked in a home invasion and subdued using a stun gun. The attack took place in Clay Township, Lancaster County and is said to be a hate crime. After stunning the women,t he assailant threw cleaning liquids over the floor and raged at the women about their religion. One person is now in custody. I can't help wishing that the Mennonite people I know were less pacifist and more defensive, at this point.
Well, locking up all the "lethal weapons" such as guns would not have stopped this crime. In fact, perhaps a simply loaded small derringer owned by the 90 year old would have stopped this attack. Locking up all the stun guns won't solve these issues either. Crazy people filled with hatred will use anything from drano, knitting needles, flammables,bleach, ammonia, string or wire used for strangulation, or about anything else. You cannot restrict OBJECTS from the general public and expect attacks to disappear. The problem are the minds and souls of domestic and foreign terrorists who wish to do harm to anyone who does not agree with them.
The up to the minute information states that Dereck Taylor Holt, 22, of no fixed address, is facing
the following charges:
- Aggravated Assault
- Simple Assault
- Reckless Endangerment of another Person
- Ethnic Intimidation
- Unlawful Restraint
- Theft by Unlawful Taking or Disposition
|Mennonite women, unfortunately pacifists, who believe they will be persecuted.|
