Breaking News: Sikh Temple Shooting: At least four people are dead and many more are wounded in a shooting at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Police have released little information regarding victims or the number of shooters, but scanner reports indicate at least 20 people are wounded while one of the suspects was “put down.” Witnesses inside described as many as four gunmen, one of them being a white male with a heavy build and wearing a sleeveless t-shirt.
The first officer on the scene was shot multiple times, and was transported to a nearby hospital. He is expected to survive.
Remember when, around 2009, DHS came out with a memo saying there was a rapidly increasing concern about terrorism from domestic conservative and militia groups?
Remember when conservatives were up in arms over this, saying that the Obama administration was going to target conservatives and Second Amendment rights and it was racist against white people?
There’s a young man on tv talking right now and when the white reporter was like, “Omg, so out of the blue right?” he corrected him and told him that after 9/11 many Sikhs were attacked and murdered and they’re aware of the danger.
The reporter was just like …:[ oh…
And this young man is being really nice about it, but he’s basically saying, “We’re under attack because of who were are, because of how the media portrayed and continues to portray certain folks on television and in print.”
He saying he doesn’t definitely want to call it a hate crime/terrorism because he does’t have all the information.
