You may recall the case of a man who killed an Indian-American and wounded another in a bar in Kansas because he thought they were Iranian. He had yelled “terrorist” and “get out of my country” at them before going home, getting one of his guns, returning to the bar, and shooting them. He also wounded a third person who tried to help, He has now been sentenced to three life terms without parole.
Adam Purinton, 52, killed Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, and wounded Alok Madasani at a bar in the city of Olathe, Kansas, in February last year.
Purinton called the men “terrorists” and yelled “get out of my country”, before later shooting them.
He said he fired on the two men, who worked as engineers at GPS-maker Garmin, thinking they were Iranian.
A third man, 24-year-old Ian Grillot, was wounded when he tried to intervene.
This is the kind of country that Donald Trump is creating.
