From the news it looks like “Texas” could not take care of it…..

From what the hostage taker had reportedly said, it was suicide by cop. Still some contradiction over the three later hostages, were they released or rescued.

Seems one hostage was released earlier, the other three were rescued once the perp was killed. Or the hostages were able to run out when they saw an open chance -- that was by another report I read.

It seems crazy.I guess he, the hostage taker, thought jewish hostages might have been a good choice? Not sure that makes sense if he actually did do all of this to release the terrorist Dr. held in prison.

Not very coherent. It's very Good the hostages were kept uninjured and released. Trauma for them no doubt, very bad.

Its almost cute, to think that the race card would need introducing. That it would not be present at the very moment that it is heard, that a gunman who was Muslim had acted.
It was about 5 hours earlier that I deleted a link in this thread, because of the obscene racism of the comments, that flowed from the link.

Its not in doubt that the first hostage was released, there is conflicting claims about the last three.

He wanted himself and the person whose release he sought, to die. That was his plan, for them to both die.

Makes sense that the feds would get involved. Surprised it was from that far out of state though.

Not seen such link. Not read any racism on here. Just I think it detracts from the severity of this to impose hypotheticals based on race. That's me done with this thread.

You didnt see it, because it was deleted (as mentioned in post #5). The comments flowed from the link, not in this thread. The "Blackburn Muslim Community" took down their own post, and is no longer viewable, even with a link. Though I did include a quote from it in this thread..

According to the rabbi held hostage they escaped https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-60027351
What happened after that is not clear, but the perpetrator did have a gun and we don't know what his actions after the escape were.

Thanks for that link, that makes sense of why I was hearing two conflicting stories, though neither was actually correct.

The brother is — like all of us, I would think — questioning how the perpetrator got into the US, as he had a criminal record, was unstable, and known to the authorities. Get ready for enhanced examinations at the POE.

Interesting, or depressing, that you’re not interested in amicable discussion of an important topic in the news.
