At least one of the shooters in the Canadian mosque shooting has a Muslim sounding name, the other a Canadian sounding name. My guess is that they are both Muslims but that is just a guess right now even though they, or at least one of them, were/was reported to be shouting "Allahu Akbar" while shooting and at least one of them was of Moroccan origin. At first, it seemed to me that the media reports tried to steer folks to the belief that the attack was perpetrated by Canadians who were anti-Muslim extremists in as much as they reported that witnesses said the shooters had Quebecois (A French speaking native of Quebec) accents. They then went on to talk about how witnesses were concerned about a pig's head having been left at a Mosque not all that long ago, seemingly as if one had led to the other. The reports even quoted the mosque's president as having said this about the pig's head: ""We were told that it was an isolated act, but today we have deaths," Yangui told reporters." I also am guessing that the idea that the culprits were anti-Muslim extremists did not hold pig's blood but again that is just my guess, I am sure more info will be divulged as to their identities. More here.
Soon though, no matter who were the killers, I am pretty sure someone down here in the USA will be blaming this on President Trump and his immigration policies. Just imagine how relieved George W. Bush must be since it appears that President Trump has finally taken the heat off of him.
My condolences to the families and loved ones of the deceased and my wishes for a speedy recovery for the injured.
There is a new Darwin Award nominee who, I think, is sure to be a winner. If climbing over two fences, to get into a zoo for free, and winding up being mauled to death in the tiger enclosure does not qualify one to win a Darwin Award - then what could qualify! More here.
There is a pretty gruesome video, on YouTube, of the man being mauled. I won't embed it here but will supply the link in the event some of you want to watch it. I watched pars of it, not nice at all. It is at this link:
I am sure it will be removed soon but as I type, it is still available. I think regardless of the violent content, or maybe because of it, YouTube should not remove it in as much as it is a great reminder to assholes that they need to think before doing things like climbing over fences to avoid paying admission fees. The really sad thing is the guy had a job and paid for his wife and kids to enter the zoo, then climbed over the barriers with a friend (a friend who did not climb into the tiger enclosure). So his wife and kids were there, at least nearby, when it happened. A nice day at the zoo it was not.
