US Officials Mull Death Penalty For Walmart Mass Shooter Patrick Crusius

The Justice Department is mulling death penalty charges against mass murderer Patrick Crusius.

20 people were killed and 26 injured on Saturday when El Paso terrorist Patrick Crusius opened fire in a shopping center.

Many of the victims were shot at a Walmart as Patrick Crusius walked aisle by aisle shooting innocent people.

Authorities are investigating the shooting as a possible hate crime because Crusius posted an anti-immigrant manifesto before he carried out the mass shooting.

The Associated Press reported:

The Justice Department is seriously weighing federal hate crime charges against the El Paso shooting suspect that would carry the potential for a sentence of the death penalty.

That’s according to a person familiar with the department’s decision making process, who was not authorized to speak on the record and spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press.

Crusius also revealed in his manifest that he targeted a ‘gun free zone’ for obvious reasons, but the Democrat-media complex is screaming for more gun control.
