The Oboma administration NEVER calls a Muslim terrorist a terrorist.

Yes that’s quite possible. I recall that one or more Sikhs were shot dead in the US after the Muslim-perpetrated 9/11 attacks.
Yep. Mine too lived on 5th Ave near the old tannery on the lake. Then we moved upscale to South Milwaukee. ;-)
CBS just used that phrase to pimp tonight's evening snooze...
Feom Oak Creek PD dispatch:
“Suspect is still at large, white male, large build, white sleeveless tshirt last seen with 2 guns.”
This administration (nor the MSM) didn't even call the Fort Hood shooter a terrorist, yet they're calling this guy a terrorist. They never call any Muslim killer a terrorist
So.,..this guy is NOT Muslim.
The gunman may have been a member of the Sikh community. There have been such incidents before, and most church shootings are by disaffected ex-members of the congregation. Similar in nature to family violence.
And our congresscritters keep on agreeing with him because they all are of the opinion that islam is a ROP.
If not, why don’t they say something?
Me too. However, the best information came out early in the Aurora shooting, which was eventually suppressed - so I'll listen to anything and everything -- as I (humbly) would suggest we all do -- while the First Amendment is still intact...
On turbans and sikhs.
Over the ears, no more fears
Ears showing, danger growing...
Sikhs wear ther turbans over their ears, ropers leave ther ears sticking out, they are also wrapped differently too.
“It could also be just a run-of-the-mill jackass who saw the turbans and concluded incorrectly that they were Muslims.”
I would think unlikely since there were multiple shooters and not a individual crazy...
Two news items from the WISN coverage. The police have excavated a neighborhood in a community called Cudahy. The bomb squad is on scene. Police, ATF and FBI agents are now at a home there. A heavily armored vehicle, explosives experts and canine units are at the home in the 3700 block of E. Holmes Ave. The news reporter says guns are drawn.
The second item is there are reports two men were seen casing the temple Friday or yesterday. Also, there is a report the shooter was dropped off. Both reports have not been confirmed by LEO.
Huh? What information?
The Police in Oak Creek just did a press conference and said there will be no more official information given out until 10:00 a.m. (Central time) tomorrow (Monday) morning.
The name of the STREET is Holmes?
It could be, but what are the odds of that, considering that there have been zero incidents like this targeting mosques? I think there have been a couple of vandalism cases, but that's it, as far as I know.
Odds are, this guy was targeting these Sikhs, for some reason we don't yet know. But, it's all speculation at this point, as they are keeping a tight lid on info, for some reason. No one has even leaked anything.
