Surprise, Surprise... Again

It appears that the young man who went on a shooting spree in a Utah shopping mall, killing five and wound four, was in fact, a Muslim.

The 18-year-old man who shot and killed at least five people Monday night has been identified as Sulejmen Talovic, a Bosnian refugee who lived in Salt Lake City.

Little additional information was released about Talovic.

The Bosnian community, which numbers about 3,000 in Utah, planned a news conference later this afternoon.

Talovic parked his car in the west parking lot and walked into the mall, encountering two people, whom he shot. Then he walked further into the mall and shot a woman, said Police Chief Chris Burbank.

Utah police say they have no idea what motivated Talovic's shooting spree, but witnesses claim he moved about the mall in a calm, methodical manner, shooting anyone unlucky enough to find themselves in his line of fire. Thus, Talovic becomes one of a growing number of Muslims living in America who attack innocent people apparently without any discernable motive. These cases seem to truly baffle police, although apparently not enough to prevent them from first saying, almost reflexively that terrorism surely wasn't the motive. They don't have a clue what the motive was, you see, but it just couldn't have been terrorism. No. Perish the though.

But why was a Bosnian refugee living in Utah? Why, indeed, are there 3,000 Bosnian refugees living there? Given bloody mess of seething ethnic and religious hatreds that is the Balkans (and has been for centuries), why were so many "refugees" granted access to our shores? Suffice it to say that had the US government not blithely admitted "refugees" from an alien and violent culture, whose ongoing tragedies have absolutely nothing to do with the U.S., the five people Talovic murdered would likely still be breathing. But then those who make such decisions in Washington have little regard for the best interests of the American people. A fact they have been demonstrating for at least forty years.
