At least four people were shot just after 10 a.m. Sunday at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, and a police SWAT team entered the building before noon and brought uninjured people out of the building at 7512 S. Howell Ave.
Among those who were shot was the president of the temple.
People were in the temple as early as 6:30 a.m. Sunday and many more were arriving for a service that was to begin about 11:30 a.m.
There were reports that children were taken to the building's basement after shots were fired.
I think Brown Deer is talking about Channel 6, our local Fox affiliate, which has been pretty much nonstop.
I heard it that time. I must of been paying more attention to FR than the tv behind me.
The guy didn’t specifically describe the “9-11 tattoo.” He did say that he thought it was a hate crime because he believes the perp thought the Sikhs were Muslim. He also said the perp was not a member of the Sikh community and that no one knew him.
I apologize for the diversion.
Looks like CNN has followed the cops to the home of shooter. Name will be leaked real soon especially if it doesn’t sound Muslim.
I know...the press gets almost orgasmic if the perp is a white guy with any “9-11” reference......They are all blithering idiots.
I can already see the writing on the wall..starting with the 9/11 tattoo..the media is going to say this is some “right-winger” seeking revenge for 9/11, targeting people wearing turbans
If the shooter was a white guy, the media would have already reported his name. They knew the name of James Holmes what, an hour after it happened, yet they don’t release this guy’s name..very strange..but the fact that they are repeating the 9/11 tattoo info, this is the narrative the media will use
A couple thoughts by someone who is sometimes in the middle of these messes.
1. Drunk freeping, always a bad idea.
2. Hesitate just a second before hitting post and maybe even check back and see if someone hasn’t posted an update or correction to the post you are about to lambast.
By broader family I think he means not related by blood or marriage, but by being all Americans together. By being citizens of this country together. The bigger family. You and me, and them, all together. Pretty neat, if you ask me.
Thanks, cd; I hadn’t heard that since I joined the TV coverage late.
Well then maybe they are trying to see if he has connections by doing a background search etc
Looks like we’ll know soon enough now that the press has followed LEO to the perp’s house.
The media is planting Limbaugh and Sarah Palin books in the shooters house.
You can bet the media is praying(Wait, I forgot, libs don’t pray) OK, hoping that they can somehow, connect this guy to the Republican party. I doubt the shooter was targeting people wearing turbans thinking they were Muslim. Anyone with half a brain knows the difference. I live near a Sikh Temple, I see Sikh’s all the time, you can clearly see the difference, doesn’t take a genius
If that “9/11 tattoo” is one of a plane flying into TWC (murderous muzzie-jihadi favorite), then take a guess how thick the whitewash & cover-up will be? Ft Hood delays and BS come to mind. Just saying...
Via Dish satellite, FOX coverage has been non-existent all day. Even now Chrissy Wallace is on repeating the morning news for the third time.
CNN coverage has been constant (but less than A-team).
Could there be a regional blackout imposed?
Actually Sarah’s name as not been mentioned, but on twitter the libtards are blaming the shootings on “Michelle Bachmann and racists like her.” Awwwwwwww libs, they are so damn predicable aren’t they
CaIR has put out a statement. Why?
Very strange if you ask me. Sounds like the race baiters are gearing up.
