Well, That Escalated Quickly…

In a very unhappy 40th anniversary reminder, the mass murder – suicide that killed over 900 persons in Jonestown, Guyana took place today on November 18th, 1978. Preacher and false prophet Jim Jones ordered the mass ingestion of cyanide laced Kool-Aid by the families of his People’s Temple cult, murdering those who failed to comply. The mass deaths were triggered following a visit by a U.S. delegation who arrived to investigate human rights abuses taking place in Jonestown. Ultimately, 918 people died, of which 304 were children.
