Kathryn ``Kate'' Steinle was out for an evening stroll with her father along the San Francisco waterfront when she was killed by a man who police said she didn't know.
Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez was quickly arrested. He was arrested over seven times for drug offenses and was under ICE detainer. He said that he didn't know the victim.
The family addressed the controversy. “He should have never been out, and now our daughter is gone forever,” Steinle’s mother, Liz Sullivan, said Friday, but she stopped short of blaming public officials for her daughter’s death.
The suspect claimed that he aimed at sea lions and I guess he missed because it hit this woman. Right now, Sanchez is in the county lockup facing aggravated assault and murder charges.
Sanchez was arrested Wednesday night after police said he shot and killed the 32-year-old woman at Pier 14 along the crowded Embarcadero, a destination popular with tourists and families for its sweeping views of the bay and the Ferry Building.
World News Today send our condolences to the family of Kate Steinle.
Who are they gonna blame for this incident?
A) Barack Obama
B) Jerry Brown, Democratic mayor of California
C) San Francisco
D) The shooter
E) Willie Horton
F) All of these above.
If you picked the shooter, you're right. But since we live in a country where blame is fingered at someone else, expect A, B and C to be the answer for the concern trolls.
Again, the shooter is innocent until proven guilty.
Now if you see Willie Horton as an answer, you might be right too. For you see, Republicans are a party that's invested in spooking White folks with tales of non-White criminal behavior.
A common theme of the conservative Craigslist is to drive the narrative of an issue. That's why he's so invested in these stories. Not only to drive click bait, but a sense of gratification that he's a powerful force in the political spectrum.

He's also invested in trying to dismiss concerns about one particular Republican candidate who caused a bit of uproar.
The U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement Agency said that they wanted him, but California privacy laws restrained them from obtaining him.
So cue the conservative outrage and concern trolling.
The political blame game is in full swing. Many fault of course the multiple choice of Democratic lawmakers and city leaders for the incident. They don't fault the shooter until they get their political satisfaction.
“It’s a terrible travesty, and we lost our daughter,” she said. “Everybody is trying to put the political spin on it, but it happened, and there’s no taking it back.”
Looks like the carnival barker Donald Trump may have sway a few more votes.
Rick Perry failed at the border. Now he is critical of me. He needs a new pair of glasses to see the crimes committed by illegal immigrants.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 5, 2015
I appreciate the GOP candidates who remain strong on border security. They know I am right. A nation without borders cannot survive.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 5, 2015

So Trump wants his "gotcha" moment. And yes, Ann Coulter too. She's milking this tragedy as well.

So once again the shiny coin is being chased. From a tragic shooting in Charleston, SC where nine lost their lives to a white terrorist to now an illegal who murdered an innocent woman.
