Why does anyone even look at "The Saudi Gazette"?

The footnote in the OP link says it all (relating to the previous shooting) "mentally disabled"

I could see that happening, especially on a bad hair day, tired after (you the shooter) had earlier been given $hit from someone, +40C with the AC not working in your vehicle or apartment, it wouldn't take much.

Why does anyone look at the Saudi Gazette ? I had a co-worker from Manchester England who liked doing crosswords. He could not face the expenditure of 2SR daily for the local paper so he would wait until I threw mine out and retrieve it from the waste bucket.


Are you back in Manchester now Peter ?


My point is that irrational behaviour is common in that weird country.

It is very common for Saudi men to pack a piece - usually in the car. Unheard of for foreigners to get one !
