What's all this then?
 
2022-01-16 2:50:00 PM  
Was he here legally? Was he taking jobs the 'Muricans  are too lazy to do?

We did steal their prince.

Apparently, he was in New York earlier that morning so maybe he was a plane flying,  Covid-infected plague rat to boot.

If I ever took hostages at a synagogue, it would be because I'm lazy and I know there will be people there on Friday night.

We don't seem to have any shortage of home grown terrorists.

Maybe he wanted to do something similar in Britain but couldn't get a gun there. So he said fark it and came here.

Corbyn?

People come to the United States from all around the world to make their dreams come true like engaging in violent gun-filled fantasies and probably eating at Chikfila.

I think we should round up all the people who talk funny and have bad teeth and put them in camps. Camps with live video cameras, so we can point at them and laugh. It's the only reasonable response, really.

TFA is pretty light on details.

Better article from the BBC.

And two teenagers in the UK have been arrested in connection with it.

Note to self: Friday night, hostages. Saturday night, fighting.

"British citizen"

*sigh* Another lapse in journalistic standards. The preferred term is "Britizen."

When in Rome... do as the Romans do.

Even if it involves taking hostages at gunpoint. You have to fit in, y'see.

Monkeyfark Ridiculous: "British citizen"

*sigh* Another lapse in journalistic standards. The preferred term is "Britizen."


Being that Brits are destroying the English language by calling human beings adjectives, it only seems right that we call this person a "British national" and deny him the dignity of his rights of citizenship. I wonder if he is one of the rich or the poor or the fortunate or the unfortunate of old Blighty. Whichever it is, he is now among the "proper farked" of the Texas judicial system.

sforce: And two teenagers in the UK have been arrested in connection with it.

FBI special agent in charge Matt DeSarno said the bureau believed Akram was "singularly focused on one issue" and that it was "not specifically related to the Jewish community", adding that it would continue to "work to find [a] motive".


Can't imagine why a guy who idolizes an Al-Qaeda terrorist would attack a synagogue during the sabbath. Yes, his motive will remain a mystery, wrapped in a quandary, wreathed in a cloud of bafflement. The FBI is going to have their hands full with this one, indeed.
 
2022-01-16 7:50:55 PM  
Which explains the lack of body count....not including the hostage talker.   "Attention, this is a hostage situation.  Now, please do as I say, if not terribly inconvenient."    Probably would have ended a lot sooner, but the Texas cops were confused by his not tossing dead bodies out the windows.

The flipside is that a legit case like this is gonna trigger a ton of racial profiling in response.

Well, Britizenship* necessarily implies Britonality, but not the other way around.

Ipswich. But I understand why they'd avoid: because of the Kent Cross gambit of 1982, which inadvertently incorporated the M4 into the game, thus providing an inevitable two move closure to Mornington Crescent.

As a white person I bet my fellow crackers are just tickled saltine that they aren't the poor, pitiful victims of this and they can once again hate brown people while utterly speculating on things.
