Change just ONE little detail, and this would be the top story on the news for three days.
If we could save just one life, they say. And then they excuse away the common denominator in a series of murderous outrages. How can you determine what the best solutions might be if you intentionally deny the material facts?
Eight people were attacked with a knife. Fortunately, the attacker failed to do anything life-threatening. Only one of his victims was even admitted to hospital.
Blair Anderson, St. Cloud Police Chief gave the press conference.
Anderson said, according to KSTP: ‘At approximately 8pm, an armed suspect entered the Crossroads Mall. ‘That individual made some references to Allah and we confirmed that he asked at least one person if they were Muslim before assaulting them.’
Anderson revealed the suspect was wearing a ‘private security uniform’.
Anderson said it was a lone suspect, telling reporters: ‘We’ve got eight victims that were assaulted here.’
He declined to call the attacks an act of terrorism, saying the motive for the attacks isn’t known yet. ‘We will be diligent and get to the bottom of this,’ Anderson said.
..Anderson said an off-duty police officer from another jurisdiction shot and killed the unidentified suspect. He did not say where that officer serves.
Sorry chief, what was that? Motive isn’t known, you say?
What, do you need to buy a vowel, here? Phone a friend, maybe?
So, a knife-wielding member of a triumphalist religion, starts asking us-or-them questions to people before attacking them, and you can’t think of why he might be doing it? Are you expecting the Twinkie Defence, maybe?
Let’s help you out. If he asked people if they were gay, and shanked anyone who said yes, you would have motive.
If he specifically singled out Jews, or Blacks… announcing it while he did so? You would have motive.
But This? You’re struggling.
This is what happens when a PC movement shames you into silence… you can’t even deal in plain facts anymore.
