The most basic duty of any responsible government is to protect its citizens.
From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
An Ohio State University student plowed his car into a crowd of fellow students and teachers Monday morning, dashed onto the sidewalk with a butcher's knife and began stabbing passersby.But later in the same article the maniac is quoted from a student newspaper that he was afraid to pray in the open at OSU.
It took Abdul Razak Ali Artan little more than two minutes to injure 11 people before a campus police officer shot him to death, authorities said.
It's likely to take much longer, they said, to explain why a 20-year-old Somali immigrant who just enrolled at Ohio State committed such a violent act.
"It's an ongoing investigation to determine motive," said Ohio State Police Chief Craig Stone.
I find it hard to believe that Artan would have been harassed if he did pray at that college. Really, I do. There were a couple dozen of hijab-clad graduates at my daughter's high school two states to the right of Ohio. She says they were never taunted about their garb. Despite what the mainstream media tells you, America is not a nation dominated by bigots.
Was Artan and his family thoroughly vetted for terror ties when they entered the United States?
