Newlywed 22-year-old girl brutally killed with a machete at work – why is no one talking about it?

The new year began with tragedy for one family in northwest Ohio after one of their members was brutally killed with a machete while working at Dollar Tree.

According to Dayton 24/7 nowAround 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Bethel M. Bekele entered the Dollar Tree in Upper Sandusky, Ohio, brandished a machete inside the store, and hacked 22-year-old cashier Cerys L. Riebel to death.

“Bekele entered the store with a machete, approached Riebel and hit her multiple times with the machete,” Police Chief Jared Lucas said in a statement.

Bekele then drove to the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office, where he turned himself in to authorities. He is currently charged with murder and a date for his trial has not yet been set.

This tragedy is exacerbated by the fact that Riebel just got married in October and recently graduated from college. She was a young woman who was just beginning her life, and she was tragically cut short by a madman.

Many people took to Twitter to express their shock and sadness at the story, and some asked why it was terrible. the crime not big news.

Could this have something to do with the fact that the perpetrator was black and the victim white? After all, the media loves to play with the idea that blacks are victims of racist violence and oppression by white.

Do you feel safe in Joe Biden’s America?

This is especially true when it comes to violence by white cop against a black person, as we have seen several times over the past few years. These stories are endlessly covered in the media.

But when the demographics are reversed, there is little to no news. This double standard is sickening. It doesn’t matter what race the perpetrator or the victim was, these actions are simply evil.

It is wrong to focus on evil only when it benefits a particular narrative. All evil must be called out, and everyone who does evil must face the consequences; otherwise we can no longer say that we live in a just society.

However, this story has a somewhat happy ending. After Riebel’s death, Amber Geyser, Riebel’s husband’s aunt, created GoFundMe to cover Jordan Riebel’s funeral and vacation expenses.

They have already surpassed the $30,000 goal, with donations reaching over $66,000!

So this sad story also shows us that although evil is very real and exists in the world, goodness and mercy are also quite real and also exist in the world, playing a much larger role in the world than evil.
