Another "Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome" incident of the kind Brenda Walker has called "Familicide" where someone, frequently an immigrant, snaps and killers their whole family occurred recently in Texas:
"BAY CITY, Texas – All four children who, along with their mother, were shot by their father at a Bay City home Wednesday afternoon have died, police said Thursday.
Two of the boys, ages 3 and 5, died Thursday morning. The other two children, ages 2 and 4, were on life support, but died later in the day. The mother, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was in critical condition in a Houston hospital.
Investigators say the victims’ father, 24-year-old Jose Avila, shot the kids in the head before turning the gun on himself at their mobile home in the 2700 block of 10th Street around 3:15 p.m Wednesday."[Bay City police: All 4 children shot by father have died, mom still critical, By Gabe Gutierrez,Posted on November 30, 2011]
In my cynical way, I wonder if the fact that immigration is mentioned here is because they want to blame this kind of thing on the fearful stress of immigration enforcement, whereas it is more likely to be caused by the fearful stress immigration itself. In Diversity Is Strength! It's Also…Familicide, Brenda Walker wrote
"It is cruel, not to mention foolish public policy, to welcome millions of uneducated people from the Third World who are unprepared for life in a complex technological society. It is hard to live in a strange country where you don't speak the language and live in a limited cocoon with others of your tribe, alienated from the mainstream community. Multicultural cheerleaders like to downplay how difficult immigration can be under the best of circumstances. But many immigrant crimes have some basis in the interior culture clash and the ongoing stress of social maladjustment."
