    Tibbetts’ dad Rob took to the paper’s pages Saturday to lambast those who cynically use the murder to score political points — using Trump Jr.’s own words against him. “I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist. The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is, to quote Donald Trump Jr., ‘heartless’ and ‘despicable,’” he wrote. It was the only time he mentioned Trump Jr. by name in the column, published in the same paper...

    Did Pope Francis say he wants to let loose Rapists & Murderers like Ted Bundy in 2014? Not only does Pope Francis formally professed the heresy that "the death penalty is inadmissible," but he wants to let loose the Ted Bundys to rape and kill or is he senile or so out of touch with reality that he thinks rapist and murderers are miraculously going to stop raping and killing. [Francis formal heresy:http://catholicmonitor.blogspot.com/2018/08/unambiguously-pope-francis-formally.html?m=1] Bundy was a serial murderer and rapist who, also, tortured the victims and even engaged in necrophilia with their bodies.  If Ted Bundy had not received the death penalty and was instead...

    The young people of Black Lives Matter are hurt. And they have every right to be. When they were protesting in the streets of cities across America, much of the country didn’t bother to listen to their message.

If they are right, 50 murderers have gotten away with their crime.
