Why not? We all know the Amish did it!

Some additional details on this story:

“Police said the man entered Mr. Westergaard’s house armed with a knife and shouted in broken English that he wanted to kill him....

He said he had grabbed his five-year-old granddaughter and run to a specially designed panic room where he raised the alarm.

Mr. Westergaard told Jyllands Posten (newspaper) he was shocked that his granddaghter had witnessed the attack.

He has now been taken to a safe location, but said defiantly that he would be back, the newspaper reported.....”

He was a black man in Denmark.
The police acted stupidly.

Sounds like a story with a happy ending, at least so far.

Here we go again:

“Jakob Scharf, who heads the Danish intelligence service Pet, said the attack was “terror related” and that the suspected assailant has close contacts to Somalia’s al-Shabab group.

He had been under surveillance for activities unrelated to Mr. Westergaard, Mr. Scharf said....”

Don’t you dare call a Somali Moslem, part of a terrorist Jihadi organization like Shabab a terrorist instead of a one time unrelated extremist - nor even mention he was a Moslem. (/sarc)

Neat! I have a panic button at my house too. It sends a .40 S&W downrange.

If this idiot had been wearing an I Kill Unbelievers 4 the Glory of Allah t-shirt, they'd still be going, "Whuh-whuh-why did he do this?"

Jim Treacher's tweet after Nidal Hasan's Fort Hood massacre. Applies here too. And it will apply the next time, and the next time, and the next time...

Symptomatic of a world gone mad. So long as the PC police let this continue, we’ll see this here in our lifetime. Coming to a US city near you.

If everyone here had a "panic button:, how long would it take for the police to begin to ignore them -- like they do home burglar alarms?

No thanks -- I'll trust the Second Amendment...

I understand Obama thinks the police “acted stupidly.” Luckily those cops are in Denmark. If they were Americans, Holder/Obama would be prosecuting, bankrupting, and attempting to imprison them, exactly as they are trying to do to the brave CIA and other Intelligence people who sought to defend AMERICA post-911

It can really make a sane person wonder what is going through the thousands and thousands of Muslims here in the US, each of them getting a daily dose of anti-islamic vibes.

Every one of them could explode into rage at the drop of a hat against whoever is defiling their Mohamed.

And to make things worse what the POTUS is thinking, he is a Muslim by his admission and acts, and he too is aware of the growing anti-Islamic chant in the background.

Would Obama go sudden Jihad?

“a 28-year old Somali” Why, sure. Lots of those wandering around in Denmark. How did he get in, I wonder. It appears that the Danes let him in with a warm welcome, as have their Scandinavian neighbors.

And now the Scandinavians who have always been big about offering advice to the USA about race relations now have their own problem.

Actually, Denmark is the most xenophobic countries in Europe. You have to live 2 years in ANOTHER EU country before they let you in even if you are married to a Dane.

A lot of Danes married to foreigners live in Malmo (Sweden) for that residency requirement and commute across the “Bridge of Love”

Basically the liberals are guilty of treason by acting Politically Correct in the face of these continuing jihadi attacks. They view it as an act of moral sophistication, I view it as complicity.

I assume that the cartoonist didn't -- and, considering the OBVIOUS danger he was in, WHY THE **** NOT????

If I was in his situation, MY "panic room" would have a 5-inch-thick bulletproof Lexan window and one-way ports for SHOOTING MUZZIES.
