The news of an assassination in Japan must not be viewed in a void. It is part of our violent times.
As St. John's Day was passing into June 25, 2022, a gay bar in Oslo, Norway was the site of a shooting. Two people were killed and twenty-one people were wounded in a mass shooting in Oslo, Norway. Police are treating the incident as an "act of Islamist terrorism" targeting the Oslo LGBTQ pride event. The suspect is identified as 42-year-old Norwegian Iranian Zaniar Matapour, who moved from Iran to Norway in 1991 when he was 12.
Then on the 4th of July 2022, in Highland Park, Illinois, a mass sniper incident occurred. Highland Park formerly was known as St. John's. St. John's Avenue is a major thoroughfare.
On July 4, 2022, a mass shooting took place during an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois, United States. The shooting occurred at 10:14 a.m. CDT (UTC−05:00), roughly 15 minutes after the parade had started. Seven people were fatally shot, and 46 others were wounded by gunfire or injured in the ensuing panic.
Authorities apprehended Robert Eugene Crimo III eight hours after the shooting and charged him the next day with seven counts of first-degree murder.
Seven people were killed and 46 others were injured during the attack. Five of the victims—all adults—died at the scene and two died at the hospital.
Crimo left an extensive social media trail of numerological signs, symbols, and clippings related to his Trump rally appearances, neo-Nazi leanings, and obsession with Jack Ruby, Lee Harvey Oswald, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy ("St. John" to some).

Crimo was obsessed with Jack Ruby killing LHO. Both JFK and LHO taken to Parkland Hospital. To die.
On January 3, 1967, Lee Harvey Oswald assassin Jack Ruby died at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas, the same hospital where Oswald died and where President John F. Kennedy had been pronounced dead following his assassination in 1963.
Georgia Guidestones bombed on July 6, 2022. They are 7 miles down Georgia 77. Destroyed and then down.
Crimo was a Trump supporter and was photographed at Trump rallies. Was he also stalking Trump?
Next up, political assassinations? The wait was short.
