Alex Skarlatos, one of the three men who took down a jihadi shooter on a French train some months ago, was a student at Umpqua. At the time of the Oregon shooting, Skarlatos was in LA auditioning for Dancing with the Stars. Did the Umpqua shooter, Chris Harper-Mercer, think Skarlatos would be in class on the day he committed his murders?
Now, news comes out that Spencer Stone, another one of the French train heroes, was stabbed in Sacramento last night.
Spencer Stone, one of three Americans hailed as heroes for stopping a suspected terror attack on a French train in August, was stabbed Wednesday night in the Sacramento area… Officers responded to a report of a stabbing and found a man in his 20s who had been stabbed multiple times in his upper body and was in critical condition… Stone, a 23-year-old U.S. airman from Carmichael, Calif., was the first American to tackle a gunman aboard the Paris-bound train. Stone, who was with his CHILDHOOD FRIENDS Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler, was awoken by the sound of a gunshot in their railway carriage….
Things that make you go hmmmm. I’m wondering, was Mercer an Islamist foot soldier, exacting revenge for the beatdown a fellow jihadist suffered on that French train at the hands of American men? Or was Mercer an unwitting patsy guided by secretive Islamist forces into an act of terror by redirecting Mercer’s autistic, omega male rage? Just a thought, but the “conservative Republican” description on Mercer’s online profile struck me as a little too on the nose, like it was made up after the fact to lead reporters astray.
