On Sunday, August 4, 2012 there was another mass shooting in the United States.

The shooter, Wade Micheal Page was shot dead by the police.

The tragedy happened at a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, south of Milwaukee.

6 people were killed in the incident and four others were injured.

It was reported that this happened because the shooter is a white supremacists.

Page played guitar and sang for white power bands like End Apathy and Definite Hate.

He sang about getting rid of the enemies of the white race and through his Internet postings, he told others to do the same.

Violence and hate is part of the culture of ‘white power music’ and these people hate the coloured and the black people.

Because of human rights and freedom, ‘white power music’ that spread violence and hate is allowed.

So, too much freedom and human rights are not always good.

And this is why we must not watch or listen to anything that has violence because we may get influence to do bad things.

On Friday July 20, 2012, a man killed 12 people and injured 59 others during the ’Batman – The Dark Knight Rises’ premiere at a mall in Aurora, Colorado.

I guess the United States should not let people buy gun freely.

  1. Another random shooting incident happened again in the United States. The question is why the authorities still allow the sale of firearms is open to the public? If the sales of pistol or rifle widely to the public are not controlled soon maybe the same tragedy will happening again and again.

    1. Dear zulfahasan,
      Yes, I think that the US government should not let the people buy gun freely and should ban groups like ‘white power music’ that promotes hate and violence. Western freedom and human rights like what Anwar is fighting for are not always good. Malaysian should learn from this tragedy and do not only follow the West.
