19 DEAD, 45 INJURED – It’s Happening…

Japan tragically reports a murderous rampage that occurred in a care facility. A man with a psychotic point of view said: “My goal is a world in which the severely disabled can be euthanized, with their guardians’ consent, if they are unable to live at home and be active in society.” That was just PART of the letter he sent to politicians before the knife attack. It was made known that he reportedly commented that he wanted the disabled to disappear. What ensued next was a horrific crime, the kind you’d imagine in a horror film.

He snuck into their bedrooms one by one and stabbed them to death. Hey, mass killings do happen without guns! Who knew?!

From Allen West:

The suspect escaped the facility but reportedly turned himself into police later.

There was no immediate indication of motive, but Japanese news outlets said the suspect was a young male who had worked at the hospital before.

It’s believed this is the deadliest domestic attack in Japan since the 1938 Tsuyama massacre which left 31 dead.

At this point, there is no word yet on motive, though the report that the suspect was a former employee might ultimately provide some clues.
What is uniquely tragic about this incident, besides the fact that we don’t hear about this type of rampage out of Japan often, is that this attack appeared to target some of society’s most vulnerable individuals in the disabled.

Little did he know he has disabled himself, mentally that is, with a little something called ableism (the hatred or discrimination of the disabled). The irony!
