Friday night brought us a new atrocity as five people at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, Washington were murdered. The mall, of course is a gun free zone, so no one was able to stop the carnage. The killer targeted women – uncovered women – in the local Macy’s around the cosmetics counter while shouting something while pulling the trigger.
I think we know what he was shouting.
At first the media was saying that the killer was ‘Hispanic’ but eventually the truth cam out. He was Arcan Cetin, a 20-year-old Turkish Muslim who lived in nearby Oak Harbor, a legal permanent resident of the U.S.
He gunned down four women and one man, including, reportedly, his ex-girlfriend and her grandmother. This might have been an honor killing.
