    Surveillance video of the Crossroads Mall stabbing attack and the shooting by Jason Falconer has revealed many previously unknown details. They show that a determined attacker can absorb many hits before they are stopped. The attacker used two kitchen knives. The have about five inch blades, with smooth handles and small, smooth guards. I wouldn't be surprised to find cuts on the attackers hands from his own blades. A practical response at the Northwoods Candy Emporium illustrates the effectiveness of barriers against attackers with contact weapons. An unnamed, quick thinking defender pulls down the gate to the store, denying...

    The man who stabbed 10 people at a Minnesota mall had become interested in Islam in the last several months, withdrew from his friends and encouraged female relatives to be more religious, the FBI said Thursday. "We were told (he) had not previously shown an interest in religion," but after 20-year-old Dahir Ahmed Adan did, he went from being a high academic performer to failing out of college "almost overnight," FBI Special Agent Rick Thornton said at a news conference. The attorney for Adan's family, Abdulwahid Osman, said his parents and close family members did not see the behavioral changes...

  • Vanity: Why Is Drudge NOT Covering Kenya Slaughter?

    Anyone know why Matt Drudge has ignored the Kenyan mall massacre that is going on still at this hour? He has updated with other stories but has not once posted a single link to this on-going nightmare going on in Kenya. I find this very odd and can't think of a reason why he would be ignoring it?

The tense standoff continued into Sunday night, with sporadic gunfire heard through the day and at least one explosion.
