Former Marine drove into shop he thought was owned by Muslims to 'make them pay,' - victims were Sikh

Chad Horsley allegedly impersonated a police officer and drove his truck into a shop because he thought it was owned by Muslims.

Chad Horsley allegedly admitted to Louisiana authorities that he wanted to make Muslims “pay.”

So police say Horsley, a former member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, targeted a convenience store in Livingston Parish that he thought was owned by Muslims, according to The Advocate. He allegedly posed as a police officer and entered the shop on Feb. 27, telling those in the business that he was going to return and search their store for drugs.

He came back on March 3, police say, and drove his white pickup truck into the shop before driving away, according to WAFB. Police say someone claiming to be a witness called and said a man stole an ATM machine and pulled out a gun when people tried to stop him.

But Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard told WWL that it was actually Horsley who called police and said he was a witness of the wild scene before later admitting that he actually committed the alleged crime.

Through the investigation we learned that he purposely did it because of the hate he had for Muslims,” Ard said in an interview with WWL. “He wanted to make them pay for some things that he felt happened overseas and things of that nature.”

Ard added to WAFB that Horsley “was also upset that Muslims, in his mind, were having an easier time prospering than he was despite his time in the service.”

Why is his face being splashed all over the media? Why his hatred for a certain religious group is being highlighted? Why isn't media withholding this information? Why do muslims try to look like Sikhs? Why do Sikhs try to pass themselves off as muslims? Why do brown people look similar? Why are they even here?

He wasn't a marine, he was just a reservist. He never went anywhere outside of his local reserve training center on his one weekend a month.

Also, from another article:
According to Chad Horsely's father, Samuel, his son was honorably discharged from the Marines in December 2017 due to liver disease after enlisting in 2014.
So not only was he not actually a marine, he was too drunk to even function as a reservist and ended up discharged.

Can someone help explain his actions by quoting some J. Peterson?

His lawyers will put the blame on PTSD.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Based on what is known at this point, terrorism charges should be pressed against him.

Now now. I can list 4 causes of "liver disease" that have nothing to do with booze.

Simply shows ppl of his ilk are just not very intelligent and easily manipulated. There's at least another case of mistaken identity. Stupid stupid stupid.
The richest 1% of this country owns half our country’s wealth, 5 trillion dollars, one-third of that comes from hard work, two-thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons, and what I do.. <find the rest>

Before or after the war? America is so desperate to recruit they will enlist unstable people as well that's when you have people throwing grenades in their own tents.
