Another politicized, left-wing shooter

Coverage of this story is mostly on local news websites. And even that coverage tries to downplay the politics; while AP’s account is antiseptically vague.

In West Goshen, PA, a person called Clayton P. Carter III shot his neighbor last night – on the neighbor’s own property (the two each stood near the shared property line).

Most of the coverage will say that the two had an unspecified “long-running dispute” or that Carter had disputes going with several neighbors, was “quarrelsome”, “argumentative”, and tended to pull a gun during his altercations. And little more.

But some coverage admits that the victim, George Brooks Jennings, is a local Republican committeeman. And will just barely admit that Carter’s “front yard was crowded with…hand lettered anti-Trump signs.”

(UPDATE: The same article says “Carter shot Jennings once in the head, knocking him to the ground. Carter then allegedly stood over Jennings’ body and shot him once more in the head,” suggesting aggression.)

I’ll leave you to imagine how different the coverage would be, if the politics were reversed. Which it normally wouldn’t be, as the great majority of political violence in America comes from the Left. Hat tip, Cernovich Media.

While we’re at it – Steve Scalise update: At the end of July, Rep. Scalise was released from the hospital for “intensive inpatient rehabilitation”.

  1. Why is a guy known to “pull a gun during his altercations” not in prison?

    Are we getting to be like the UK where nothing short of regicide (or issuing tweets unkind to Muslims) rates any meaningful jail time?

    No. The police will shoot you down first if you only wave at them a phone with the video camera turned on.

    But that’s only if you’re just… not a leftist.

    If you’re a leftist you can shoot at people playing baseball, or burn their cars, trash their streets and business facades, etc.

    You’re all good to show your unwillingness to get “offended”. Even if the offense is in your imagination only, after reading a 6-managerial layers distant coworker’s memo.

    ‘hope this clarifies!

  4. This bastard will hopefully go to prison for a long time. If he’s lucky, he will be a bottom boy for the toughs in prison. But after looking at his picture, you’d have to put a bag on his head to screw him.

  5. salg:

    That is because Giffords is a liberal woman who is perfect as an angel, and Scalise is an evil Republican who should not live (sarc).
