Murder in Roseburg, Oregon


Hells Canyon

On Friday, my husband and I took a day trip to Hells Canyon … so many spectacular views.

The canyon, walls the Snake River on the Idaho/Oregon border.

I snapped the photo near the Hells Canyon Dam.

Information regarding the deadly affair in Roseburg, Oregon

Thursday, October 1, 2015, was a grievous day for America! How our hearts break for the loved ones of those heartlessly shot! However, grateful for the ones who are in heaven, where there is no evil … no sin of any kind. And mourning remembered no more.

For true born again believers, “It is better to be absent from the body and present with the LORD.”

Victim of Roseburg killer

Christopher Harper Mercer, the gunman, left a note stating, he would be “welcomed in Hell and embraced by the devil.”

CNN News: “The man (Christopher Mercer) who gunned down nine people at an Oregon community college (Umpqua) was enrolled in the class where the fatal shootings occurred, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said Friday.”

Daily News: “The gunman was enrolled in Assistant Prof. Lawrence Levine’s Introduction to Expository Writing class. The 67-year-old instructor was the oldest of the nine people slaughtered by the shooter.”

Washington Post excerpts:

Witnesses stated he seemed to seek specific revenge against Christians …

Clad in a dark shirt and jeans, driven by a motive that is still unknown, he methodically sprayed bullets into classrooms full of students, who hid behind desks and desperately tried to block doors that didn’t lock.

In one classroom, he appeared to single out Christian students for killing, according to witness Anastasia Boylan.

“He said, ‘Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second,’” Boylan’s father, Stacy, told CNN, relaying his daughter’s account while she underwent surgery to treat a gunshot to her spine.

Another account came from Autumn Vicari, who described to NBC News what her brother J.J. witnessed in the room where the shootings occurred. According to NBC: “Vicari said at one point the shooter told people to stand up before asking whether they were Christian or not. Vicari’s brother told her that anyone who responded ‘yes’ was shot in the head. If they said ‘other’ or didn’t answer, they were shot elsewhere in the body, usually the leg.”


Chris Mintz, a 30-year-old Army veteran, shielded his classmates from the gunman, miraculously surviving after being shot more than five times. 

“He could have very easily died,” his aunt, Wanda Mintz, told Q13 Fox. “I really think that if he wasn’t such a strong, young guy, he may have died.”

As Mintz blocked a classroom door, he was shot three times. “It’s my son’s birthday today,” he told the shooter. The gunman shot him two more times.

Mintz has served in the Army for 10 years, and is awake and alert at a hospital.”


Christopher Harper Mercer chose to walk the way of satan as a Wiccan … being “into the occult.”

And we recognize the similarity to the Columbine, Colorado, school shootings. These male students who dressed in black and were aligned with satan, also asked students if they were Christians and killed them if they were. A total of 15 deaths. (Eight shooting sprees sadly lie in Colorado’s history.)

Mercer lived with his mother (of african race decent) who is a nurse, in a small apartment. Apparently they did everything together.

He had a jihadist friend—Mahmoud Ali Ehsani, “an open sympathizer with jihad killers.”


UK News:

Ian Mercer, father of Oregon college shooter (who was absent from his son’s life, living in California), was sued for sexually harassing a male co-worker at his LA bagel shop and creating a ‘hostile’ work environment.

Ian Mercer, 55, was sued for making sexual comments about customers and staff while manager of Noah’s Bagels in Thousand Oaks, California

Brett McDonald filed the lawsuit in 2008 charging the mass killer’s father harassed, inappropriately touched and embarrassed him.

Mercer was also accused of making inappropriate comments about a customer’s daughter and her mother, wanting to be sexual with both of them.

McDonald says when he filed complaints with senior management he was unjustly fired

In May 2009, Judge Ernest Hiroshige dismissed the case against Mercer

It was also claimed that Mercer allowed his staff to produce bagels in the shape of male genitalia while making them and overseeing an environment where workers were insulted with the Spanish swear words.


CNN News attempted to make Christopher Mercer’s distant father, a hero. He blamed the guns not his son for the terrorism. He stated, “That’s what guns are, the killers.”

Ian Mercer, appeared to parrot everything the media desires to hear, in an interview with him—stating, he is opposed to guns, and the fact his son owned several guns, went against his no-gun beliefs. Or so he says.

It appeared, Ian Mercer was programed on what to say, including the fact America has more killings than other nations, which is not the case.

(World homicide statistics and how America compares:

Other nations can own a greater rate of homicides despite what the media declares, though America does not display the lowest rate.)

Ian Mercer supposedly requested the CNN interview.

Ian Mercer lives in California, originally from Britain. It appears he desires media attention. This is what his son desired, believing he would soon be world-famous after killing so many.  Of course, I am not insinuating his father owns a heart that would mass murder.


Though news’ sources have portrayed Chris Mercer to be a white supremacist who opposed “black lives matter.” He is mulatto—his mother is black and his father is white. The family moved to America from Britain. His parents divorced in 2006.

The LA Times labeled Mercer as owning “white supremacist leanings,” even though the shooter was mixed race of black and Caucasian.

The secular news media has not displayed photos of his black mother, from all I have observed, though one or two are available if you do a search under images of “Laurel Margaret Harper.” Here is a photo from the Internet of his parents.  (The photo is a younger shot of his mother)

The “black lives matter accusation” is insane, knowing the movement is not productive and shouts for murder of whites and police. It certainly is not anti-terrorism.

Remember, the news media stated originally, George Zimmerman was white, though he is hispanic and caucasian.  One news’ source turned this brown eyes blue, in a photo. Zimmerman’s mother resembles a typical black woman though she is hispanic; and Zimmerman invited many black youth into his home.


Christopher Mercer tried to join the military, but flunked basic training.

News media states he is a loner, though he had no problems assisting on the drama team at the community college.

Chris Mercer was a “production assistant” and promoted a performance of a Noel Coward play by the school’s drama group.

He does not sound completely withdrawn to me.

Police found Mercer “with a receipt from the campus bookstore showing he had purchased textbooks.” (Canadian source)


The Roseburg community is numb with grief. Umpqua Community College is near Roseburg, Oregon aside the Umpqua River (named after local natives).  The Roseburg hub is dubbed a God-fearing, Republican hamlet. A large sign is now displayed on the main road, “Pray for Roseburg.”

Unfortunately, like many areas, which have been targeted by terrorists, the college was a “gun free zone.” Guns are not even allowed to be carried by security enforcement.

Mercer most likely knew it was a completely safe place to shoot to kill, being a student of the college.

It must also be noted the Chattanooga, Tennessee, recruitment center was gun free, as required by law.


It appears, certain people have been changing Mercer’s profile, and removed his Facebook info page. Also other information from the social media. Fortunately, people took photos of some of his blogs before deleted.

This blog of Chris Harper Mercer (below) exposes the lies that he was anti-black lives matter and white supremacist. Of course, his mother is black, and she is the one who cared for him over the years. (Sorry for the bad language in his post.)



United Kingdom news source:

He left behind a complex web of online identities which offer a possible insight into his personality – or at least a glimpse of the way he wanted to present himself to the world.

He maintained a myspace page, on which he posted a photograph of himself holding what appears to be a rifle, alongside images of masked IRA gunmen.

His username on the dating site Spiritual Passions was ironcross45 – a handle often used by sympathisers in reference to the German military symbol reintroduced by the Nazis.


British News source: British relatives described their shock as it emerged about Chris Harper-Mercer, who had been born in the UK …


He was reared in the US, and attended a school for children with special needs in California.


Believers identify with the fact, petitions for our nation are vital for revival! The survival of all Biblical ethics within our nation is teetering.  The God of the entire Bible must be called upon. Only holy truth can save.

Historical correctness exposes the fact, when the Bible was respected and honored within our nation, mass murders were most rare. Now mass homicides occur every two weeks in our nation.

In the early 1900s, they occurred once every ten years or near to. After the Bible was removed from our public school system, mass killings in the 1970s occurred approximately once every two years. In the 80s, there were 10 mass murder episodes. The 90s produced 24 mass murdering reports. From 2000 to 2010, about 40 mass killing sprees were recorded.

The increase continues with the decades of expanding disrespect toward God and His mortal creation. Man is deemed as holding little value amidst an attitude of human disposal of the innocent, who deserve to die under the agendas of comply or else.

USA Today: The FBI counted 172 cases of mass killings between 2006 and 2011. That does not include some large states such as Florida, for example. Poor reporting by police agencies to the FBI also means some mass killings were left out, while others that don’t meet the standard were included.


WND News:

Checking into the facts regarding “The shooter reportedly had a clean record.”

But none of the president’s gun restrictions would have prevented Thursday’s mass shooting at the community college, said Alan Gottlieb, executive vice president and founder of the Second Amendment Foundation.

According to the ATF, he purchased several of those guns,” Workman said. “All the firearms were legally purchased from a firearms dealer, so background checks would have been involved.”


NY Times: All 14 guns have been traced to a federal firearms dealer.


I, like many Americans, believe in background checks for all who desire to purchase a gun. And I would add, only allowed to those who value human life, owning a caring and sensitive heart, and respecting the laws of the land, excepting any immoral laws.

Unfortunately, we know if people want to murder, they find a way, such as building bombs or taking a knife or machete, to kill people. O J Simpson did not need a gun to kill, and how are governments going to remove all knives from the face of the planet?

In Muslim areas of our globe, chopping off heads with a machete is too common. Many Christians have died as martyrs, with a blade applied to the throat.

The first thing we need to do is reenact the death penalty for all murderers with swift justice—as is the law of our nation, though entirely ignored. We need to outlaw the democrats. They uphold the ACLU, which is in the business of getting criminals off, and argues for least possible sentencing. And, we all know, this has led to many murdering criminals serving short sentences … being released to kill again. This is a common denominator in our news.

Our president applauds killing rampages amid protests of the world. He was behind the gun running of Mexican drug cartels—”Fast and Furious.”  The Obama administration provided the weapons.

He applauds the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamic organization with the blood of thousands on its hands. He has deep ties to them and worked behind the scenes in their coup of Egypt, they being his weapon of terrorism and “change” in this nation. He wanted Morsi in presidential power, he too, a hater of Israel and America. Though he received what he conspired, his delight did not last more than a year, when Morsi was forced from office and imprisoned.

CNN News:

National Review: Consider the way Secretary of State Hillary Clinton provided Morsi with verbal support in the critical days leading up to the June 24, 2012, presidential election. In a discussion hosted at the State Department three days before the election, Clinton said it was “imperative that the military fulfill its promise to the Egyptian people to turn power over to the legitimate winner.” She also warned about the danger of “backtracking,” to a military regime.

“The Muslim NYPD cop killer Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley worked for a Muslim Brotherhood front group, according to his Facebook page.”


Consider: “According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs, outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.

A total of 625 murders were committed with rifles and shotguns in 2012.

The total number of deaths committed with fists, hammers, and other blunt objects was 1,196. That breaks down to 518 murders related to hammers and blunt objects and 678 related to fists.

Obviously, the rate of homicide by fists and hammers ‘is nearly 100 percent higher than the rate of murder by rifles or shotguns.’ ”

Handguns, are by far, the weapon of choice in assaults … outnumbering all other methods. Yet, it is the assault weapons (types of riffles) which democrats are promoting to be banned.

And, not forgetting, the medical instruments used to tear apart defenseless children in the womb.

Love in the Savior who brings joy in the morning,
