“A DOCTOR couple were found with their hands bound and throats slashed in a blood-soaked £1.5 million penthouse,” The Sun reported Sunday. “Cops discovered British anaesthetist Richard Field, 50, and his fiancée Lina Bolanos, 38, slain in Boston, US, with a “message of retribution” scrawled on the wall.”
“One of two doctors killed in a luxury Boston penthouse sent a text to a friend saying, ‘gunman in the house,’” BBC News elaborated Monday.
Field had time to reach his phone and to send a text message. That makes it fair to speculate if the outcome would have been different had there been TWO “gunmen in the house.” And/or a “gunwoman.” Especially since CBS Boston is reporting “police found a BB gun or a ‘replica gun’ inside a backpack.”
With specific information lacking, probabilities suggest British and Colombian pediatricians, one also working with Harvard Medical School, would not have been proponents of the right to keep and bear arms. In any case, there have been no reports of armed resistance. Instead, indications are the anti-defense admonition to “give an attacker what he wants” was followed.
Curiously, but not unsurprisingly, the UK reports and most “mainstream news” reports omit significant information about the suspect, Bampumim Teixeira. Most sources, like the Chicago Tribune, are telling us he “had recently been released from jail after serving time for larceny. Last June, he passed a note demanding money at a Boston bank. He committed the same crime two years earlier, prosecutors said.”
But we need to turn to what’s disparaged by the elite media as “alternative right wing fake news,” like a Monday report on WND.com, to find out the “West African immigrant” is a “permanent legal resident” who for reasons unknown had his sentence reduced and was not deported. And no one in government seems to know why – the state defers to the feds and the feds don’t have an answer.
If nothing else, that should call attention to the so-called “rigorous security screening” we’re told immigrants must go through. How that’s possible with no reliable comprehensive records, especially for the Third World, never seems to be explained.
Two other clear lessons are also once more indisputably illustrated for all who are willing to see: The police did not arrive in time to save the victims. And the suspect was only stopped because the men who did had guns.
