A 39-year-old Milwaukee man has been charged with three counts of homicide for tracking down and shooting three neighbors after confronting one over the fact that he didn’t speak English, the Journal-Sentinel reports.

According to police, Dan J. Popp shot and killed Jesus R. Manso-Perez, 40; Phia Vue, 36; and Mai K. Vue, 32  after first trying to lure Manso-Perez to his place with an offer of beer.

According to police officials, Popp stopped Manso-Perez and his son as they walked by his apartment on the way to the laundry room. After refusing the offer of beer, Popp asked where they were from and, upon learning they came from Puerto Rico, replied, “Oh, that’s why you don’t speak English. You’re Puerto Rican.”

According to Manso-Perez’s son, they were returning to their own apartment when they encountered Popp on the stairs landing pointing a rifle at them.

“You guys got to go,” Popp reportedly said before shooting Mans-Perez in the head and then firing at — and missing — his son.

Police state that Popp then proceeded to the Vue’s apartment where he kicked down the door and shot Phia and Mai Vue as they huddled with their four children.

Responding police officers were directed to the apartment by several of the children who escaped, and Popp surrendered to police after dropping his weapon when ordered to so.

According to police, two weapons were recovered and that Popp does not have a previous criminal record. Police state that a medical emergency call was received from Popp’s residence the day before the triple murder, but provided no further details.

Popp remains in  Milwaukee County Jail and is slated for a mental competency examine to see if he understands the charges and can aid in his own defense.

Ex-cult member imagines terrifying end game to Trump’s presidency: ‘He might take everyone with him — like Jim Jones’

Published

President Donald Trump exhibits many signs of "malignant narcissism," according to some psychologists, and his personality profile fits with other notorious cult leaders.

Steven Hassan, a mental health counselor and an expert on mind control, described the alarming similarities he sees between the president and cult leaders like the one whose control he fell under himself as a young man, in a new column for The Daily Beast.

"I have seen that profile up close," Hassan wrote. "Over 40 years ago, while a junior in college, I was recruited into a destructive mind control cult, the Unification Church, popularly known as the Moonies after its leader, Sun Myung Moon."

‘Crazy as a bag of hammers’ Lindsey Graham mocked for calling Trump’s too-late sanctions on Turkey a ‘game changer’

Published

As Kurd civilians are slaughtered in Syria after Donald Trump opened the door for Turkey to invade, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) came under withering ridicule for happily announcing the president's agreement to levy economic sanctions of Turkey as a "game changer."

The South Carolina conservative has been harshly critical of the president's decision to move U.S. military personnel out of Syria where they have served as a bulwark againts a Turkish invasion, and now that the slaughter has begun, Graham has been seeking a way to lessen the damage as people are slaughtered.

Late Sunday, Graham tweeted, "Just spoke with President @realdonaldTrump. I applaud his decision to work with Congress to stop Turkeys aggression in Syria through crippling economic sanctions. This decision by President Trump will be a game changer -- in all the wrong ways -- for Turkey."

Kurdish forces warned they’d go to Putin and Assad if US withdrew: Former Trump envoy

Published

on

Now that President Donald Trump has made it clear that he will abandon Kurdish resistance fighters to be persecuted and killed by Turkish forces, the erstwhile U.S. allies are moving to cut a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad to ensure their protection — all but wiping out U.S. support in the region.

Not only was this broadly predicted by experts, but according to The Daily Beast, former anti-ISIS special envoy Brett McGurk was warned explicitly by Kurdish officials last year that this would happen if America did not secure a deal to contain Turkey and ensure the Kurds' continuing security.
