Gunman Kills 6 in Wisconsin Before Dying in Shootout
New York Times ^ | August 5, 2012 | by Steven Yaccino

OAK CREEK, Wis. — In what the police called an act of domestic terrorism, a gunman opened fire in a Sikh temple here on Sunday, killing at least six worshipers and injuring three others before being shot and killed in the parking lot.

The rampage ended in a shootout with the police. The gunman ambushed one of the first officers who arrived at the temple, shooting him several times, before another officer killed him, the authorities said Sunday afternoon. The officer remained in critical condition at a nearby hospital, along with the other two shooting victims.

The police did not release any details about the gunman or a possible motive for the shooting.

John Edwards, the police chief in Oak Creek, said at a news conference that the F.B.I. would lead the investigation because the shootings were being treated as an act of domestic terrorism.

The FBI, known for rapidly determining that any horrific attack is not related to terrorism, has called this act “domestic terrorism.” Odd that.

Still no name or description of the shooter. But they were able to determine this shooter was a terrorist, but of the domestic sort.

If he had shouted “Allah Akbar” then they would have called it “workplace violence.”

That was way fast

How do they know this wasnt yet another schizo gone berserk?
Or a love triangle or grudge shooting?

If he was a “terrorist” was he a dumb sumabitch who didn’t know the difference between a Sikh and a muslim?

DHS is desparately hungry for white terrorists to dilute the statistical fact that US domestic terrorism has been by MUSLIMS

OAK CREEK, Wis. — In what the police called an act of domestic terrorism, a gunman opened fire in a Sikh temple here on Sunday, killing at least six worshipers and injuring three others before being shot and killed in the parking lot.

Wouldn't you have liked to have read:

OAK CREEK, Wis. — In what the police called a thwarted attempt at terrorism, a gunman opened fire in a Sikh temple here on Sunday. The un-named gunman was stopped after firing into worshipers by an armed worshiper who fired twice, killing the assailant. Aside from the gunman, three people were injured, one critically.

Still a bad situation, but it could have ended much better. Oh, but that's right... The libs/commies want us disarmed so we have to wait for the police while innocents get to die by the dozen. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. A somewhat cutsie slogan, but also very, very true.

Thus we know with 100% certainty that the perp was not a Mooselimb otherwise their would have never been any suggestion that this was an "act of terrorism."

Look for the fat bitch Big Sis to be making a statement anytime soon and the far left commies at the Souther Poverty Law Center to chime in.

FWIW, I have been watching the feed of the local ABC affiliate up there and they posted this: "Temple was hosting a special guest from India today."

Could this be a political assassination attempt? Just speculating...

Why are the holding back the name for this long? They can’t allow for an Islamic terrorist attack this close to the election because they want Obama reelected: So they are covering up evidence that the shooter is a Muslim.

Did you actually think that statement through???

Think... I guess in you world the West should not have wiped out all those religions that kill others in the past...Cannibalist, Head Hunters, suttee, Thug-ism, Satanism etc.....or lets enslave in the name of a religion for example, islam, but in your world you can not hate the enslavement that religion brings.

There is a line that a religion can not cross for most people with a conscious....yes, you can hate evil.

Odd that. Still no name or description of the shooter. But they were able to determine this shooter was a terrorist, but of the domestic sort.

After a day of following the Fox non stop news all we know is one shooter killed several "priest" and that it was an act of "Domestic Terrorism."

So the police will have you believe that this is a hate crime against Sikhs. Odd that a stranger could pick out the priests among hundreds of people in a strange building so quickly. Does not sound like a deranged bigot to me. Sounds like revenge. Still no suspect's name even though they are going through his home now. Fox can't let us know who. They suck along with the really left wing media.

The fact that Robert Holmes, his father

was to testify before the Senate about LIBOR.

I sure timothy franz geithner could be involved. Seems to be just a coowincy dink.

Inside he had killed three priest (visiting from India for special function). These priest are called ‘Granthi’. They wear white Salwar (shirts) and white tight slacks, they either tie white turban or black turban. They either read scriptures or singers.

The first ‘False Flag event,one week before the UN Small Arms Gun Ban Treaty,Possibly was the shooting in Aurora,Colo.

Lefies are disappointed the polls show that public support for more gun control laws has not increased, in spite of the killings in Aurora.

It is obvious that something (like more mass shootings) will have to take place to move public sentiment toward supporting more gun control laws if lefties are to have any chance at all of getting US support for the UN treaty.

Yes, I do believe the totalitarians in the federal government and most rabid anti-gun lefties would resort to any scheme or false flag operation to attain their goals. It has happened before.

The Fast and Furious false flag operation leading to the death of Brian Terry didn't just happen by itself.

The Ruby Ridge massacre didn't just happen by itself.

The slaughter at Waco didn't just happen by itself.

IMHO its worse than that. Obama and Holder were ARMING a 5th column group of guerrillas meant to destabilize mid western red states, conducting little wars in places like Arizona to destabilize conservative culture, and place it under strict leftist regulation via executive order.To help do this Obama would have liked an armed reconquista movemnt of armed men working out of federal reserve lands in Arizona, prohibited to the public.He failed.

Obama and Holder failed in this but risked an act of war against Mexico to attempt this treasonous initiative, now supposedly limited to “Fast and Furious” gun running. IMHO it was much worse than that. Much , much worse in its intent.

As to whether Obama and his liberal fascist thugs created the shooting scenario in Colorado? It is possible, all that is often needed is a spark put to an already tinderous, flammable situation.Obama is capable of just about anything. His activity in Kenya in support of Kenya’s Islamic Orange Party fascist , Rial Odinga,and the resulting intertribal warfare and genocide,should have made that fact plain to the world in 2006/2007.Kenya was Obama’s test bed for his Southern border/illegal alien work in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

I am awaiting the facts on this case in Wisconsin.The perpetrator is a cypher, and the police/government are scrubbing his public background before naming him.I want to see his facebook page, but the authorities are increasingly preventing this from happening.

President Obama will soon be meeting with CAIR and other muslims to hear their (interminable) complaints about backlash against innocent muslim terrorists.

At that time he will announce a new multi-million dollar federal government grant to counter any possible negative public sentiment toward muslims.
