CERSKA, Bosnia (Reuters) -- The 18-year-old gunman who shot five people to death in a Salt Lake City, Utah, shopping mall was a survivor of the siege that ended in the Srebrenica massacre of 8,000 Muslims in Bosnia's 1992-95 war, a cousin said on Wednesday. Sulejman Talovic, who was killed by police after Monday's shooting spree in which he also wounded four people, fled his village with his family during the Bosnia war to Srebrenica, a U.N.-protected enclave, Redzo Talovic said." "They spent two years in the town, during which Bosnian Serb forces besieged the enclave and Talovic's grandfather was killed by shellfire, Redzo Talovic said. When the Bosnian Serbs overran the town in 1995, taking away and massacring some 8,000 Muslim men and boys, Talovic and his mother were evacuated by the United Nations and later reunited with his father, Redzo Talovic said. "They were a good, quiet family, and I remember that he was a nice kid when he was 4 or 5, maybe a little bit playful," he said, standing in front of the burned-out shell of the Talovic family home in the village of Talovici, eastern Bosnia.

Notice how they imply, but don't really say, he's a Muslim.
Parable of the Scorpian and the Frog.
"Why did you sting me? We'll both die now" asks the frog as both he and the scorpian sink into the river.
"Because I'm a scorpian," replies the scorpian.
Do we know if he shaved himself before he left?
It would probably be beneficial -- for the benefit of the many freepers who are currently crying "MSM conspiracy" every time they see an article about this incident that doesn't mention that the kid was Muslim -- that the Serbs who massacred the Bosnian Muslims were "Christians". Funny how the MSM is protecting the sensibilities of American Christians by not associating their religion with these massacres.
Ain't it the truth, I have sympathy for the victims of this animal, not him.
Ah, the old 'perpetrator is a victim' schlock from CNN again.
Hey CNN, How about some in-depth bios on his murder victims?
This is what we all should have expected from the MSM. Victims be damned. This "poor" guy blah, blah, blah. It makes my skin crawl to read reports like this. This is not a "free speech" issue with the ying yang that wrote this tripe! It's anti-American and (as much as I hate seeing this word over and over) treasonist! If this were a Mormon or a Baptist that shot up a mall the headlines would read "MURDERER IS A CHRISTIAN"!
Notice how they don't even bother to imply, much less really say, that the Serbs who massacred Bosnian Muslims were Christians.
"the Serbs who massacred the Bosnian Muslims were "Christians". Funny how the MSM is protecting the sensibilities of American Christians by not associating their religion with these massacres."
Croats and Bosnian Muslims were at war with each other in Bosnia. Serbs and Albanian Muslims were at war with each other in Kosovo. You're confusing the two. And, you're also swallowing a fair amount of propaganda, as far as any reports about "massacres." People were killed, yes. War is like that. I don't believe any mass graves were ever found, though, to justify use of the word massacre.
If the story is supposed to make me feel sympathy for the kid and the series of evil choices he made, it didn't work.
If his being a survivor in any way explains his actions, we must quickly find the other survivors and start watching them, or deport them.
Now he is a dead murderer.
O.K. now I know the truth. The fault lays with his early environment and this is really the greedy Americans' fault. He can be excused and we must quit profiling these poor Muslims and their religion of peace.
I'm also wondering when the dinosaur media gets around to blaming this on our great President. How one poor innocent muslim was driven to the extremems by W's Iraq policy.
If the un hadn't screwed up and saved this muslim, 5 Americans would still be alive today.
