SEATTLE, July 29 (Reuters) - Police stepped up security at Seattle synagogues and mosques on Saturday, a day after a Muslim man who said he was angry at Israel shot dead one woman and wounded five others at a Jewish center.
"We are also protecting mosques, because there is always the concern of retaliatory crime," Seattle Police Chief Gil Kerlikowske told a news conference late on Friday.
Are they for real?! I wonder if the Seattle Police also protect burglars, murderers and rapists for fear of retaliatory crime? Does he not realise that one group of people in this story are the victims and the other - the agressors?! This is not the time for moral equivalence; cycle of violence and political correctness.
