Maurice Stallard and Vickie Lee Jones

Maurice Stallard, 69, was shopping at Krogers when he was murdered. Vickie Lee Jones, 67, was in the parking lot near the entrance to Krogers when she was murdered.

Gregory Bush is the pro-gun, pro-Trump, white nationalist who went to an African-American church in Louisville, Kentucky, found the door locked, then murdered the first two black people he could find at a nearby Krogers. It happened the same day as the first bombs showed up at CNN and other places.

I usually have a good eye for details, but I honestly can’t tell right now if Gregory Bush would have made the news in big way, had Cesar Sayoc, Jr. decided that letters instead of bombs would’ve been more effective.

All I know is that Maurice Stallard and Vickie Lee Jones were murdered because of white nationalism.

Maurice Stallard and Vickie Lee Jones mattered.
