When was the last time you heard of white people randomly shooting and killing brown mothers and their kids?
The hero teen boy who saved his injured siblings by walking 13 miles for help after drug cartel gunmen opened fire on their car says his mother screamed for them all to get down just moments before she was killed.
Devin Langford, 13, has been hailed a hero for hiding his injured siblings under branches and then walking for hours to get help from their Mormon community, La Mora, in Sonora state last week.
His mother Dawna Langford and two of his brothers, Trevor, 11, and Rogan, 2, were among the nine Americans killed when gunmen opened fire on their vehicles.
Speaking for the first time since the attack, an emotional Devin told ABC News that he recalls the gunmen having long guns and said they were wearing vests.
He said his mother screamed for him and his siblings to ‘get right down’ when the gunmen started shooting.
Devin, who is set to detail the attack in full in a Good Morning America interview on Monday, was hailed as a hero by his grieving father David Langford.
‘He’s really a hero, he definitely saved his little brothers and sisters. I think he did it because of his love for them,’ David told ABC News.
David said he has since made the heartbreaking decision to leave the community with his surviving children in the wake of the attack because it is ‘not worth living in fear’.
‘So now it’s my whole life has turned upside down. Not only have I lost a wife and two children, but I’m having to move the rest of my family with really no place to go at this point,’ he said.
Five of Dawna’s children were injured in the attack and were airlifted to an Arizona hospital for treatment.
Nine-month-old baby Brixton Langford was left with an open flesh wound when he was shot in the chest.
David said if the bullet had struck the baby just a quarter of an inch lower it would have struck his lung.
Kylie Langford, 14, was shot in the foot and nine-year-old Mckenzie Rayne Langford was shot in the arm.
Eight-year-old Cody Greyson Langford was shot in the jaw and four-year-old Xander was shot in the back.
Also killed in the attack was Christina Marie Langford Johnson and Rhonita Miller and her four children – six-month-old twins, Titus and Tiana, her 10-year-old daughter Krystal and 12-year-old son Howard.
I wonder if Donald Trump saw this picture from the attack:
That image should be in the minds of everyone talking about the nonexistent border wall.
This one too:
Talking about alleged threats in the Middle East while the devil operates freely just south of the border sounds like a problem with priorities.
These are real threats that grow their spheres of influence with each passing day, getting deeper and deeper into America, little by little.
The very people responsible for these acts are allowed to claim asylum.
These monsters are getting in.
The fate of these Mormon families is just an example of what can happen when these creatures’ numbers are high enough.
Mexico is an example of what happens when the demographics battle is lost.
