The realization that the American political climate has devolved in such as way as to exude anger, hostility and outright violence is nothing new to anyone, at least not since the 2016 Presidential election.
The partisanship and tribalism that currently exists in our public discourse continue to find strange new ways to isolate and anger every corner of supposed civilized society. Anger and animosity have now seeped into even the most simplistic of personal interactions, where criticism, abject hostility, and even things as simple as empathy and compassion towards others in need or suffering has become commonplace.
Such was the case in Auburn, Washington at a local Shell station. Three males are caught on a surveillance camera robbing the Shell gas station on Saturday after watching the convenience store clerk collapse from some sort of medical issue.
No aid or assistance was offered. No ambulance or any other medical help was called. The man was simply left to die as the teens returned multiple times, taking both money and cigarettes from the store while the clerk lay on the floor dying.
Identified by co-workers and family members as Zarif Kelada, the clerk is now on life support at a local hospital and may not make it. His condition is considered extremely critical at this time.
ABC News reports:
“Three males in Washington state are seen on camera ignoring a store clerk who collapsed in front of them from an apparent medical issue, with the two young ones choosing instead to step around him to rob the store.
“Police in Auburn, Washington, are searching for the two young males who appear to be teenagers plus an adult man who came into the store with them prior to the incident on Saturday evening, authorities said.
“Store manager Angela Sharapova told KOMO that the teens ran away with $178. “It just breaks our hearts,” she said. “We just pray to God that he makes it.”
Auburn police reported the incident began at approximately 5:41 P.M. Pacific Standard Time on Saturday evening when one of the young teenage boys, picked up a pepperoni stick from the counter. He then handed a second pepperoni stick to his companion, according to the store’s security camera.
The young teenage boy then hands the clerk a $1.00 bill and the clerk then walks around the counter to confront them. As the clerk starts to go back around the counter and return to the register, he then falls over onto a shelf of water bottles and onto the floor, according to the surveillance videos.
The teenage boy then is seen on video reaching down and snatching his single dollar back from near where the store clerk was collapsed on the floor. Video footage shows another older man leaving the store, with the second teenage boy leaving shortly thereafter. Meanwhile, the first teenage boy chooses that opportunity to jump the cashier’s counter and is seen on video taking something from behind the counter before running out of the store.
Both teenage boys are then shown entering the store twice more in short consecutive order. On their last trip back into the convenience store, the surveillance video appears to indicate that the teens took money from the cash register.
Breitbart News reports:
“Kelada’s co-workers set up a GoFundMe page to help the man described as “a friendly, dependable employee, husband and father of 3” with his mounting medical bills.”
Local affiliate KOMO adds that:
“Instead of calling for help, one of the teens took the dollar back from the clerk then bolted with the other two people, police said.
“The teens returned several times, police said.
“They stole some cigarettes and $178 from the store’s cash register, Sharapova told KOMO News.
“I don’t think that’s right, you know?” said a man who works at a food truck nearby.
“At one point, the two teens seen in the store’s surveillance video passed by his food truck, the man said.
“As soon as he saw Kelada on the ground, he immediately tried to track down the station’s owners as several customers performed CPR and called 9-1-1, the man told KOMO News on Tuesday.
“If you see someone like that, you know, you try to do as much help as you can,” the man said.
“What angers him and Sharapova the most is the teen’s actions after Kelada collapsed, they said.
“This whole entire thing could have been a whole different story,” Sharapova said.
“Sharapova doesn’t know what the future holds Kelada. She described him as a friendly, dependable employee, husband, and father of 3.
“With the community’s help, she believes Kelada has a fighting chance.
“Having people turn around and do what they can to help us deal with this and help us catch these people kind of is overwhelming,” Sharapova said.
“Co-workers have now set-up a GoFundMe page to help Kelada with his mounting medical bills.
“As of Tuesday afternoon, police haven’t been able to track down the teens seen in the surveillance video, a police department spokesman told KOMO News. It’s unclear if they’ll face any charges. Police have interviewed the man in the video and determined he was not associated with the teens.”

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall
When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.
Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”
Do you think Facebook should be regulated so they're forced to treat everyone the same, regardless of their political beliefs, considering their size and influence in society?

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.
SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED
I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.
Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.
Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

The government didn’t spend or receive money from NAFTA. So unless you’re going to raise taxes, there is no money coming into the government from the new deal.

Good, now you can stop bothering Chuck and Nancy about getting our money for it.
— S.Danielle (@sdanielle) December 13, 2018
I am losing faith in you, sir. Why are you asking us taxpayers for 5 billion dollars if the new deal will pay for the wall? You promised that we wouldn’t have to pay for it! Please keep your promise, a free border wall, or I will not vote for you again. #NoWallNoVote pic.twitter.com/eDopbpl7T1

Also the deal still has to be ratified and approved by Congress which probably won't happen until the end of 2019 Or possibly mid 2020. So you're making promises using money you don't have and may possibly not get. What a shocker Mr. Bankruptcy
— Alan Volante (@VolanteAlan) December 13, 2018
Well wait until that money is coming in and build it then
— Caren Sykes (@misscsykes12) December 13, 2018
I've decided I'm not buying a Maga hat from you, but instead spend the money on drugs. So, now you pay for my drugs.
— Vincent Carmiggelt (@graphincent) December 13, 2018
Great so you don't need a penny from Congress or US Taxpayers then. Let us know when Mexico sends you the check for the $5 billion you want for the first payment on the wall. Until then don't bother Americans for the $.
— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) December 13, 2018
No, this means consumers will pay for the wall.
— Carolyn McClanahan (@CarolynMcC) December 13, 2018
If you buy something that normally costs $1000 on sale for $750, you didn't save $250. You spent $750.

Jeez… I saw that one coming.

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.
Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!
An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.
Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:
An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.
Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.
“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.
Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.
“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”
“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.
“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”
Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.
Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
