At the airport. Attack was on an airport policeman. Unknown if it is a terrorist act yet.
What is known is
Fox did a segment on it.
CNN had a small insert to keep it out of the way of covering Senate Hearings on the Russians.
So did Marxist Socialist NBC
Fox' second segment was on the hearings,
The Clinton News Network stayed with the Russians, both physically and philosophically.
MsNBC ( small letter is deliberate) went to the Obamacare repeal.

    Isn't there a fairly high muslim population in the Flint/Detroit/Ann Arbor triangle? If he screamed an allah reference then at least a lone wolf radicalized suspect investigation into him, his family, friends and such should be warranted ... right?

    "Reports indicate that the officer was stabbed in the neck, and that his condition was elevated to "stable" from "critical"."

    Canadian terrorist.
    Tactically, "An isolated incident."
    But strategically?

    Now we need to add Canada to the travel ban. May as well build a wall on the northern border while we are at it.

    Everything sounds like the guy is a nut job that just happens to be Muslim. From his remarks, he sounds like he expected to commit suicide by cop and wanted to go out in style. In a target rich environment, knowing that the vast majority of people at the airport aren't armed, he went straight toward one of the airport policemen that was actually armed. You would expect a terrorist to try and take out as many as he could while he could, but that was not his plan.

    Jerm, don't you know how this works yet? Any violent crime committed by a Muslim is terrorism. Period. Also, any mass murder, as long as it is not committed by a Muslim, no matter how politically motivated, is merely the act of a lone wolf nutjob.
    Typically, I would agree with the sarcasm in your statement, but when he is screaming, "Allah Akbar" and ranting on about Syria and Iraq, there are some obvious political and religious motivations going on-- I would consider a Christian doing the same type of stuff in the name of their god terrorism as well. Was this an ISIS attack? No way. This guy acted on his own, wanted to commit suicide by cop, and decided that if he brought religion and politics into it, he could secure a seat in heaven. I guess I would say that this is a lone nutjob committing an act of terrorism.

    I would tend to agree. Reportedly, the first words out of his mouth after being shot was "why didn't you kill me?"

    I am now reading that he tried to buy a gun earlier this week but was refused. In contrast, you won't hear much about that in liberal media. They will keep believing that you can buy them on every corner and have them shipped directly to you without a background check.
