Two gumen in a car attempted to kill a security guard outside of a contest for the best Mohammad cartoon. Police were already on the scene for added security, and they killed the gunmen on the spot.
The guard was injured but is expected to survive. I wish them a speedy recovery, and my prayers are with them and their family.
What is the score? Leaving the world no poorer, two examples of human filth are erased from existence. One decent person is shot, which is extremely sad, but they should live to tell the tale.
The thing that strikes me as insane is that the contest was being held in Texas! What were the violent criminals thinking? How far did they think they would get, anyway?
I think Charlie Hebdo should relocate from Paris to Dallas.
Steven has some important background.
The guard was hit in the lower leg. He was taken to the hospital, treated, and then released. So presumably it wasn’t a very serious wound.
The attackers, on the other hand, are both dead. Good riddance.
Trying to stage a jihadi operation in Texas is about as pointless and useless as trying to do so in Kurdistan. It will probably fail and the locals WILL return fire and kill you.
Two dead terrorists; yeah, good.
Glad to hear that the security guard’s okay.
Actually, it could have been a bloodbath: there was a metal detector at the entrance to the exhibit; no guns were allowed inside.
Then again, since the police in Garland outside the event were actually armed, unlike the French police outside Charlie Hedbo – advantage is still Texas.
