Muslim immigrarnt opens fire - kills 5 in Finnish Mall

A Muslim immigrant opened fire and killed five people in Finland today before turning the gun on himself.


CNN reported: A gunman opened fire inside a busy shopping center near the Finnish capital of Helsinki Thursday, leaving five people dead, police said.

Four of the victims — three men and one woman — were killed at the Sello shopping center in Espoo, just west of Helsinki, police said. Some were employees of a grocery store at the mall, police said.

A fifth victim, also an employee of the grocery store, was found later at an apartment in Espoo, police said, without offering details. CNN affiliate MTV3 said the victim was a woman.

Police told a news conference hours after the shootings that they found a sixth victim, who they believed to be the shooter. Police had previously identified the suspect as 43-year-old Ibrahim Shkupolli.

MTV3 reporter Pauli Poutanen said he learned from police that the sixth body was found near the crime scene.

Shkupolli had lived in Finland “for some time,” police said, but they don’t know his nationality.

Ibrahim killed his ex-wife and three men and a woman who worked with her.


ABC.net reported: Ibrahim Shkupolli, 43, opened fire in the suburban Helsinki mall where his ex-partner reportedly worked, shooting dead three men and a woman before fleeing, Finnish detectives told a press conference on Thursday (local time).

The body of his former partner, whom he had been barred by a court from approaching, was discovered later in a house on the outskirts of the capital.

Police said they believed the incident, the latest in a series of shooting sprees which have sent shockwaves through the Nordic country, was triggered by a domestic dispute.

Barcepundit has more on the mall massacre.

Apologize for misspelling “Immigrant.” I was in too much of a hurry to get it posted.

At some point there’s going to be pogroms against Muslims all over Europe.

The world is learning what Israel has put up with from the muslims...acts of terror against a civilian population..
But my guess is they will be passive until Islam is the major religion in Europe...

Back to the dark ages

I have NO desire to vacation in Europe as I once wanted to do. As a matter of fact, flying anywhere in the world is now something I won't do until the USA adopts El Al procedures. Our leaders and politicians all use private jets and have security details, so none of this applies to them.

We’ve got so much to see here, unless you have been all over the US, you don’t need Europe.

Other news releases report that he is an Albanian, illegally in Finland.

Yeah, that restraining order worked out just fine for the victim ....

More proof that you can pass laws against crime, but laws are not a panacea for eliminating crime. Gun Control is a “feel good panacea” that does nothing to stop the violence.

Chances are there will be. I rather like the idea. Unlike the pogroms against Jews, these pogroms will be justified.

But don’t you dare profile! To be PC, we need to take our limited resources and “focus them across the board.” ;-/ We dare not concentrate them on one particular group, even if that would be the most efficient course. We’re the government after all, we’re here to help... And this is the same group some want in charge of our health care?

Well, gang, JIHAD is, after all, WORLD-WIDE.

Looks like we need to kill them faster and if they keep wasting folks in Euurope, perhaps we’ll get more help from more European nations...

NAHHHHHHHHH...

You have a choice, progroms against muslims,
or progroms against Jews and Christians.

Not a hard choice for me...

Look out for the anti-gun nuts. Finland is unusual because it has more firearms per person than the US.

BBC has this to say:

Shkupolli was an ethnic Albanian from Kosovo who moved to Finland in 1990 [...] He had a previous conviction for causing bodily harm and had twice been fined for illegal possession of a handgun, in 2003 and 2007

They have a large article about this.

Isn't that the same description for the Christmas Day Nigerian? it puts new credance to the saying "you've got to watch those quiet ones,....especially if they're potential jihadis."

They have three more years - and I'd wager they'll use the Bush did it excuse each and every one of them. It's gotten old and eats at credibility, and its finally being noticed by media (a few at least) - at long last.
