Letter: Enough!

To the Editor:

Enough!

Three hate crimes last week...two shootings and a series of mail bombs.

Enough!

In Louisville, Kentucky, Gregory Bush was arraigned Thursday on charges that he murdered two African Americans at a Kroger supermarket in Jeffersonville, Kentucky, while shouting racial epithets. This only minutes after he had attempted to enter a predominately black church.

Enough!

In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Robert Bowers faces 29 criminal charges for massacring 11 people at a synagogue while shouting anti-Semitic slurs. Six additional people were wounded.

Enough!

In Miami, Florida, Cesar Sayoc Jr., has been charged with mailing more than a dozen packages filled with explosives...all to critics of President Trump.

Enough!

Mr. President, what is it that you don't understand about humanity and leadership? How is it that you don't understand that words and demeanor are powerful? Why can't you understand that your words and demeanor encourage the Gregory Bush's, the Robert Bowers's and the Cesar Sayoc Jr.'s of the world?

There are no excuses, Mr. President. You are complicit in all these acts.

Enough!

And those of you who have casually dismissed the words, demeanor, misogyny and bullying of the President are also complicit in these acts.

Enough!
