In a press briefing, police officials confirmed that the suspect made “references to Allah” while conducting the terrorist attack and “asked at least one person if they were Muslim when they assaulted them.” Officials noted that there is “no evidence” that any other individuals were involved in the attack, and there is “no imminent threat” to civilians as the suspect was killed in a confrontation with an off-duty police officer


Multiple Injured in Mass Stabbing Incident in Minnesota Mall

Now with this news and what has happened in New Jersey and New York are we facing Possible Planned Attacks? If So why this weekend ?

What is a bit concerning to me is that this is the first I have heard about the stabbings in Minnesota, and the only reason I heard about the explosive devices in NYC/NJ is because some friends of mine who live up there mentioned it on their facebook pages. When I posted about it, I even had my sister ask me if it was a hoax, because she was not seeing any news about it. The lack of any significant news coverage makes me wonder why it's being treated as a minor news story; I'm not a conspiracy theorist but the obvious lack of attention is curious. And if that's all there is to it, that it just isn't an important story, it makes me sad that these types of incidents are now considered "minor" news.

Because last weekend would have been too obvious?

It may actually help to not have a lot of TV coverage. These types of criminal acts often inspire copycats and the sensational TV coverage feeds into that. Print coverage wouldn't have the same affect, IMO.

Just thank goodness this guy only had a knife instead of a gun. Crowded shopping mall, with an automatic weapon he could've easily killed 100 people or more.

PS - no political agenda here, just stating the obvious

Dont think its minor news , i think the press have received their marching orders to downplay any terrorist attacks that happen . In order to help hillary in the polls.
