Incidentally, I don't recall seeing any of these beheadings in the United States get any more airplay in the media, this soon after they happened, than the incident you're bitching about.

Some are just so desperate to jump the gun and draw conclusions without evidence, perhaps due to passionate hate.

Wait until the DA files charges. If it is what you say it is, then I'll hold the other side of your banner.

It's not that long ago when the Mafia was very active that they were notorious for cutting off fingers so the victim could not be identified. I recall that removing the victim's teeth with pliers was another tactic. Of course those practices aren't used anymore since DNA is used to identify victims.

Oh, brother. It wasn't a religious killing. This was discussed and debunked a long time ago.

And the usual suspects are having their usual knee-jerk "sharia law is coming to get us" response.

Just more workplace violence. Nothing to see here. Grow a beard and turn the court into a joke. Seems to work well for other terrrorists.

That's right, bump it up to the terrorist level. Maybe you can tell us what the argument was about? The Muslim killed the Christians because they refused his demand to strap on a vest and head over to the synagogue???

Add to that list of victims, non-Christians.

Not at all surprising. Just like no politicians are for background checks for all those pouring into this country, only for Americans.

Title of thread should be Man Murdered Two Men in NJ. Of course, that's not nearly as sensational, is it??

From your link:
Quote:
While an impetus is not yet known for the crime, some are concerned that it might be religiously motivated. Pamela Geller, a conservative blogger who also serves as the executive director of American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI) and Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), says that she believes the beheadings coincide with Muslim teachings.
As far as we know, religion played no part in this crime.
