Sanctuary City Fall Out. While waiting for the Massachusetts jury that would convict him of a double homicide, Bampumim Teixeira taunted the prosecutor in his case and vowed to rape his wife before he was dragged away in handcuffs by court officers. Teixeira, a vagrant from West Africa had been convicted of two bank robberies and was released from prison just weeks before he murdered two doctors in their home courtesy of a plea deal that knocked part of his sentence down to time that would not trigger deportation. Is this a case of sanctuary policies run amok?

Some sects within the movement are known for their fierce condemnations of white and Jewish people. Social media postings connected to one of the now dead perpetrators are rife with anti-police and anti-Jewish writings. How did we get to a place of such violent anti-Semitism?
