Independent Editor,

   The God of the Christians, Muslims and Jews is the most prolific serial killer of innocent men, women and children of all time. Everyone else pales in comparison. And God gets billions of dollars in tax breaks and write-offs for houses, cars and other godly perks as provided by God. No wonder they aren’t moved by the Republican torture and abuse of men, women and children on our southern border.

   And another thing, Trump is cruising for a confrontation, and if he gets it and you have children in the military, they might be called on to fire upon their fellow citizens as they protest, like they did at Kent State University on May 4, 1970, where four students were killed and nine were injured. It could happen again if our military is not counseled on judicious use of its force.

   And just a few days later (on May 15) in Jackson, MS, a group of students were confronted by city and state police. Shortly after midnight, the police opened fire, killing two students and injuring 12. I hope our soldiers are prepared for this, for their sake.

   In the words of Frank Zappa, “It can’t happen here,” but it did, didn’t it?
