One American soldier was killed and another injured today, as a man with an assault rifle opened fire on an Army recruiting office in Little Rock, Arkansas. The murderer is in custody, though his motive has not yet been made public. Whatever it is, though, he needs to be punished to the full extent of the law.
It makes me sick to think that someone who signs up for the armed services can put himself in harm’s way day after day, and then return to his own home and be murdered by one of the very citizens he was defending.
Please, pray for our fallen hero and his family, as well as for the full recovery of the surviving hero.
Update: Now we know—the shooter was a recent convert to Islam with a grudge against the Army. Big surprise.
