Colorado massacre puts politics on hold in America

One of the victims of the massacre, 24 year old Jessica Redfield was a radio personality and blogger
Hours after the tragic Colorado shooting happened, politics in America has been put on hold.
1. Obama cut short his campaign trip in Florida...and has already addressed the tragic incident on TV
2. Vice president Biden and First Lady Michelle Obama have canceled their activities for the day
3. Mitt Romney's campaign announced all campaign ads in Colorado would be pulled until further notice
4. Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell, set aside his scheduled session with reporters on Capitol Hill
5. Nevada State Democratic Party postponed a news conference 

Also, Warner Bros has cancelled the Paris premiere of the Dark Knight that was to take place tonight.

I hope some people will take a cue from this...

Someone we know would rather leave the country for other related matters in Brazil and say that in his absence, the country will be run effectively leaving many people asking, if he is around bombs will still go off...what difference does it make if he is not around?

It just goes to show the alarming difference between the political landscape of the Americans and the Eye sore that we have here in Nigeria...They understand that the life and well being of the average American is Number one priority, and they had to put on hold all kinda political engagements just to show solidarity and unravel what actually happened..But Nigerian Politicians are so full of SHIT, because all they ever bother about is making more money and fucking the country up sideways..Thumbs up to the American Government..

Aawww I'm sure the useless person would say he/she was just having fun and didn't intend to kill anyone or intended to kill someone because batman told him to -_- .. As for ur hint to the nigerian president, what do u expect?? Its nigeria now! Or are we talking about different nigeria's .. SAD SAD SAD

for the love of a true nation! citizens who know the meaning of a fellow citizens life and worth. hope our leaders would learn from this and stop telling us the can rule from anywhere!

Muse said...

Your tag on the blogger's picture above suggests she is dead...meanwhile she reported the story on her blog. "Was" makes a whole lotta difference, Linda

If they didn't learn from the Dana incident, and still grounded air traffic in Abuja, then you can be sure they will take NADA cue from this.

Atobatele said...

Cue ke....they can never take any cue...bunch of useless people at the seat of power

Malamik said...

This is a place where priorities are kept right.Human life are held in high esteem.And sincerely hope lessons are learnt by some person especially those in power

Anonymous said...

Duh! When it becomes a regular occurrence, they won't suspend anything. So your point?

Segun said...

US is a country where value is placed on human lives. Ofcourse we are not in a country so we shouldn't expect any of such acts from our silly govt. Boko haram opens fire on innocent citizens daily and our president is spechless. O ma se o.

Linda you meant to say a victim who escaped.... you made it look like she passed away but her blog said otherwise....

Goodluck Jonathan,dame patience n other politicians!I hope you all can read n watch this!kmt

Oh My bad...she was just lucky to miss a previous shooting...Oh my Goodness that's bad

Anonymous said...

Anon 5:46 I thought Linda made a mistake too..but if u check the date of the blog and also the location...it's different...apparently she had escaped a shooting last month but I guess unfortunately she didnt make it this time...

Seymore said...

And Uncle Jonah will be going to Brazil when Boko Haram kills Nigerians in their numbers. One begins to wonder if he hadn't travelled he would have died. I just hate that man.

Poor blogger and her last post was on how she escaped the shooting in the mall in toronto...only to be killed in the shooting in the colorado cinema....kia life is indeed like a vapour!

Linda Ikeji said...

I THINK WE SHOULD LOOK AT IT THIS WAY.... SHE LEARNT FROM THE ONE SHE MISSED EARLIER ON TO LIVE EVERYDAY BEAUTIFULLY AND TREASURE EVERY MOMENT AS IT COMES, WHICH SHE SAID SHE WAS WILLING TO DO AS AN EYE OPENER...

Muse said...

May her soul rest in Peace, I hope she knew Christ, dear Lord...

Its not just our leaders, after the Dana Air crash i was shocked to learn the Nigerian film industry released 'Last Flight To Abuja' less than a week later, with much hype. That's just wrong.

You obviously didn't know a similar shooting took place in TORONTO recently!! Please, don't try to be a smart alec without doing proper research! She escaped the Toronto shooting only to be killed in Colorado! Sad! RIP girl

Anonymous said...

I'm so sad!! See how she reported missing the Toronto shooting only to die in such a similar situation! What if her instincts had warned her to leave the cinema, just like at the food court weeks earlier, and this time she ignored it?? So sad. Man's inhumanity to man, I will never understand it! RIP to all the victims :(

The curse of the dark night. Remember Heath Ledger the joker died after this same movie. This is so horrible. may her soul rest in peace.

If for some reason, either of the killers reads the girls blog, or know her enuf to know her movements, then I guess they decided to pull a 'final destination' stunt on her. The others r collateral damage. Psychopaths! This is what happens when people have excess money and too much time on their hands. Abi na pesn wey never chop belleful go enter store go buy gun?

No linda our ruling elite will not take note.its simple they dont care and we are too cowardly to call them out on it.they will go about their merry way accepting unearned permanent sec positions and attending street naming functions that would gulp millions for just a 1hour show of silly ass adults.

Sadly She died after surviving Toronto's massacre

Only retards compare oranges with apples.James Holmes has a name and a face but boko haram has none.Think before you talk.

Musediq said...

So so sad..and i heard this Jessica girl was a lucky shoot out victim in Canada last month!Iku to ma pa ode wa ni inu apo (the death that will kill the hunter is in his hunting bag). May God save us....

Tricia said...

The next thing we will hear is that James Holmes is high on 'bath salt'. Sm1 is determined to make that movie a failure.
