It was a cowardly, sneak attack murder like no other.
Emma Walker was shot to death late at night, while she slept.
Meanwhile, boyfriend Riley Gaul, (soon arrested for Emma’s murder) went home and tried to hide or destroy evidence.
But prior to his arrest, Riley Gaul posted a biblical verse on Twitter for Emma Walker.
I am not making this up.
Here’s a Cliff’s Notes version of Riley Gaul’s 1 Corinthians 13-8
Now – and this is where it gets more than a little creepy. Count the number of “likes” in Riley’s tweet. There’s more since I grabbed this screen shot, sadly.
Riley reminds me of Vanderbilt football player and gang-rapist, Brandon Vandenburg.
On Brandon Vandenburg’s, idiotic Twitter account, he wrote, “IAMSECOND” (First) and “GOD FIRST (Second.)
And Brandon was an Honor student.
Believe it or not, Eric Smith objected to naming Maryville College, where Riley Gaul played. Yep. Possibly relating a murder to a Maryville College football player was Eric’s concern.
Fortunately, Hillary Meeks Tune, set Eric Smith straight in one quick hurry.
But how’d we’d get to a horrible murder and some clown talking about football in the Bible belt?
Quick reminder: The Bible was written long after events transpired, (with time enough for revisionist history to match one’s personal bias); and, as most women were considered of little value, weren’t taught to read.
That explains why zero chapters of the Bible were from the point of view of half the population; although Jesus hung around with lots of women on his own, and expanded to the “proper” women who accompanied their husbands to events.
Thus, considering for much of time, women have been muzzled, for bogus, religious reasons…it’s hardly a surprise the states with the highest murder rates involving women, come from the South.
In short; there’s not a shortage of this, as men continue to prove women are disposable.
The arrest and trial of Riley Gaul will likely show Emma wanted to end the relationship, and Gaul had trouble accepting that. It’s a fairly common version of,
“If I can’t have you, then by God, no one can.”
However, today only, will demonstrate not only was Emma’s future stolen; but her family’s future was too. Something as simple as family get-togethers. And photos. Riley ended it all.
Two cuter kids would be hard to find.
Only men can end the culture of misogyny in America. Last year 1,631 women were murdered by those who “loved” them. They become “anonymous” women, while others talk about equal rights for those of differing religions and sexual orientations.
Worse? Have seen some posts (by men) saying to take the name of the college out, as their allegiance remains with…football! That’s hideous: But that’s misogyny folks.
For some, football will always be more important than a murder victim, killed in her sleep. Football is their religion.
Speaking of religion
So now what? Pray for the family, but please, proof of prayer is action, There is no “Rest in peace” for murder victims.
Also, people who are murdered while they sleep, are not resting. They’re dead.
Last, please know this is not God’s will. God gave us the gift of free-will. So no cop outs with “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”
(Using that logic, there’s no need for the police or the courts.)
Sometimes think it just might be that God views humans as a well-meant experiment. That failed. I get the feeling when it comes to cold-blooded murders such as this one, that God decamped to another Galaxy to concentrate on making a smarter, more humane, species.
So will leave you with happy photos of a shattered family because another idiot was outraged a young woman he wanted to stay with him, wasn’t interested.
For the living, be a friend of murder victims. Emma wanted to be a neo-natal, nurse. She was a helper. Pray for the energy to help make sure justice is served.
Blessings to the family.
