Just kidding, it's another Muslim.

My favorite part...

Quote:
Carter's office said Killeen gun shop Guns Galore, the same store used by Hasan to purchase weapons allegedly used in his attack, tipped off police concerning a "suspicious male" who purchased gunpowder, shotgun ammunition, and a magazine for a semiautomatic handgun.

Greg Ebert, a retired police officer who works at Guns Galore, said a young man showed up in the store Tuesday afternoon and browsed for about 20 minutes. He selected six one-pound canisters of smokeless gunpowder, Ebert said.

Then, Ebert said, the man asked the store owner questions about the nature of smokeless powder.

"That is a red flag for me," Ebert said. "He should know. Why is he buying that much?"


Okay let's be honest - he was profiling, and rightfully so. I can say that because reloading ammo is a fairly common hobby in Texas because it saves you a fortune in ammunition costs in the long run. Our own company has someone on staff who reloads ammo for range practice rounds. He's about 60, overweight, typical WASP. He wouldn't set off any suspicion buying 10 cans of gun powder.

But a middle easterner named Naser Abdo buying six cans of gun powder? Oh yeah, alarm bells. Laughing

The tipster, being a retired police officer, probably won't admit it but police profile all the time. And most times, they're absolutely right.

Sounds like an outstanding individual.

First joins the army thinking he wouldn't deploy to Afghanistan... Really?
Second cowards out and goes AWOL.
Third plans revenge...or whatever motivation.
Fourth also gets busted with child ****. (I'm pretty sure pedophilia is frowned upon by the Qur'an... hang on...wait no it technically says it's allowed. Then again so does the bible so perhaps these arent the best moral compasses after all.)

actually gun shops usually know their customers, those who buy bulk reloading supplies are usually there for one of two reasons.
A) They are regulars, probably make bi weekly stops at the store, purchase or not.
B) They are there for the sale, and you know who is there for the sale because they come in, buy several hundred dollars worth of the sale item that the store just received the day before. Its like blood in the water and all the sharks show up instantly.

I do not think him being an arab had anything to do with it. I think him walking in like an idiot and buying smokeless powder and haveing little or no reloading knowledge sends up a red flag. I know for a fact that the 3 local shops here usually ask what you are reloading for when you purchase powder, primers and bullets. Less for terrorist detection and more for "Dont sue me because you put the wrong powder in your loads and blew your hand off". Also people come into gun shops trying to buy guns to do illegal things, it happens and shop owners do not want to promote this. Shop owners try their best to screen who buys guns from the shop. Lets just say that the words "lets get your fingerprint to run the background check" deters a lot of unwanted clients.

Their point is he asked questions he should of known. It is like going to your local library and asking for all books on bomb makings with pesticides.
If you have a good reason to be having that info you would A. know where to find it and B probably have the knowledge from training.

But if people want to get into it. A. the dude was right to profile him. Secondly You don't look for the bad apple amongst in a box of oranges you look in the box of apples. I mean get over it Yea people profile minority's. Facts are facts minority's in any walk of life are more likely to be made up of those different to the majority. Difference can breed resentment can breed extremism.

How are they going to continue to bankrupt the world if this new threat didn't exist? Do you have any idea how much money the mercs, the arms industry, the banks and everyone else wouldn't make?

War and terrorism are srs bsnss, even when you have an incredible 100tn deficit.

Did you guys read the article? Watch the video? He doesn't even look like your stereotype muslim. You also missed this part:

Abdo, 21, had refused to deploy to Afghanistan and later went AWOL from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, after being charged with possession of child ****ography, Vasys said.

Quote:
Abdo, who joined the infantry in 2009, refused to deploy to Afghanistan on religious grounds. The Army approved his request to be discharged as a conscientious objector, but on May 13, he was charged with possession of child ****ography on his computer, according to the statement.


Clearly this guy has a lot of issues.

Indeed he has issues, he objected to the war.

Object to war - get charged with possession of child **** - go down as example to rest.

This is what you call a political prisoner, because in China you go to prison for 'tax evasion' and what better way to character assassinate someone than arrest them for possession of such an awful thing as kiddie ****.

OMGOMGOMGOMG Such a thing would NEVA happen in our bestestest lolsocieties!

It probably has something to do with a) who they are fighting in Afganistan atm, and b) previous terrorists were also muslim.

Dun worry, there's alot of christian terrorists too to even things out and make thre world a happy place in it's racial equity :)

Around here a guy tried to build a nuclear reactor in his kitchen and called the authorities to check if it was illegal. It was.

Whats really sad?

Democrats, liberal news sources (CNN, NBC, NYT, etc) and Joe Biden openly call Tea Partiers terrorists,
yet make every excuse to refrain from using that terminology for Muslim crimes against society, even when the perpetrator is yelling "Allah Akbar" while running over pedestrians.

Sorry, Joe Biden, calling a large group of American citizens 'terrorists' sounds like pretty divisive language to me. We'll remember that in 2012. Better start working on those memoirs because your political career is over. Rolling Eyes

If black people vote for a black candidate, it must be because of racism.

If white people vote for a black candidate, it must be because of 'white guilt' and reverse racism.

If white people vote for a a white candidate, it must be because they considered the issues and voted for the candidate that best represents their views.

Have I got it right?

No more like vote based upon who logically seems like the best candidate, on what their views are, and what policies they "promise" to implement or get rid of. Color seems like a stupid reason to vote or not vote for someone.

Homemade fusion If you have the need engineering skill and knowledge about physics is not impossible to do some sick things in your basement. Building reactors is easier then getting the fuel needed to run then, which is illegal in most/all countries.

I was stationed in Ft Hood from 2005-2010. I bought all my weapons from guns galore. The guys know everyone that comes into the store or will quickly try to get to know you. and if you give them a bad vibe. they will kick you out of there store. and all employees at guns galore are former military/police.
