|In Memory of Colleen Hufford|
I am not sure why it is that people have a hard time believing that religious fanaticism can lead a person to decapitate an innocent victim in the United States. I would expect more boldness and common sense from someone like Greg Mashburn. In an interview with media today, the District Attorney said several enlightening things that would seem lead to the opposite conclusion to which the D.A. arrived.
The woman beheaded, Colleen Hufford, died at her place of work. A woman, a grandmother, a citizen of Oklahoma was decapitated. The D.A. responsible for seeking the death penalty of her murderer has now publicly said, "race may have played a bigger role than religion."
Really? Listen to District Attorney Greg Mashburn's own words and then decide for yourself what seems to be the motivation for Alton Nolen decapitating an innocent woman and seeking to do the same thing to another woman before being shot.
"It is clear that Nolen had an infatuation with beheadings."
"It was a (personal knife) and not a company knife."
"The defendant severed the victim’s head from her body."
"Nolen openly admitted to ‘beheading’ the first victim with a knife and cutting and attempting to ‘behead’ the second victim with the knife.”
"Nolen was using some Arabic terms during the attack."Just a little research into radical Islamic terrorism might actually lead the D.A. to the opposite conclusion. It's time we wake up to the fact that fundamental, radical Islamists want to lop off the heads of infidels. And sadly, that kind of radical religious zealotry is infiltrating the United States.
