This just arrived from my CNN news feed:
Two people were shot by police outside of an event billed as the “Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest” in Garland, Texas, on Sunday evening, according to Garland Mayor Douglas Athas, who added, “I believe they are dead.” A security guard was also wounded, according to Athas.
CNN producer Chris Lett, who was covering the event, said there were about 40 people gathered when police announced there had been a shooting. The event, sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative, claimed to have received “over 350 submissions of Mohammed cartoons from all over the world.”
I guess they deserved what they got, for they were clearly punching down. And even if it’s true that the event was hosted by the odious Pamela Geller, that doesn’t warrant murder.
