While Barack Obama was boarding his plane to Palm Springs, people were being hacked to death by a Somali refugee in Ohio. Obama is currently lounging in Palm Springs and hasn’t commented on what appears to be a terrorist attack.
Police shot and killed a 30-year old man named Mohamed Barry who brutally hacked four patrons.
He walked into the Nazareth restaurant in Columbus Ohio last evening, talked with an employee, left for a half hour and then returned to slash people with a machete. He escaped after the attack but police eventually converged on his vehicle. When Barry left a vehicle with a knife and machete, the police fired a taser. He then lunged across the hood at the officers and they shot him dead.
The restaurant in Ohio is the Nazareth Restaurant & Deli.
The four victims injured in the attack have been identified as William Foley 54; Neil McMeekin, 43; Gerald Russell, 43 and Debbie Russell, 43. Musician Bill Foley is critically injured.
Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner said “right now there’s nothing that leads us to believe that this is anything but a random attack.”
A random attack???
Barry is a Somali immigrant who traveled to Dubai in 2012.
Barry first left when he was told the owner wasn’t there. The owner is a Christian Israeli.
A witness described it as a scene from a horror film as he mindlessly and quietly hacked people.
“There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after,” said Columbus police Sgt. Rich Weiner. “Some of the patrons there started throwing chairs at him just trying to get him out of the restaurant.”
The husband of one of the victims claimed on Twitter last night that the suspect entered the restaurant and asked where the owner was from.
The owner Hany Baransi flies the Israeli flag from his restaurant.
What a mystery. A Somali refugee starts hacking people in a restaurant owned by an Israeli. Will we ever solve it and figure out his motive? Meanwhile, the FBI is trying to figure out a motive.
Update: 2/13/16: CNN is trying to save he’s just a criminal with a drug problem. In general, ISIS are criminals, crazy, have drug problems but they are still terrorists. He’s a rabid jihadist with a drug problem so they are trying to say it’s because he has a drug problem. The Columbus police are trying to say it’s not terrorism.
