Utah Paper Reassures Americans by Interviewing Moderately Violent Bosnian Imam

Excerpt from Julia Gorin's Republican Riot Blog:

There’s been a recent break in the investigation of what led the shooter in Salt Lake City to kill. (KSL News) Federal agents have traced the handgun used by Trolley Square shooter Sulejman Talovic to its original owner and are now trying to figure out how it ended up with Talovic.…The Deseret Morning News also reports police are questioning witnesses again about what they saw or heard during the shootings.

So after a break in the case, the Feds have determined that they need to go back and re-interview people from the scene about what they saw or heard during the shooting.

And so the previously dismissed testimony of eyewitnesses who confirmed the inconclusive recording is now needed. For some reason. That we aren’t being told. But which has to do with the break in the investigation.

On his desk were a small, decoratively carved wooden chest; a jar of honey; a cup holding many pens; a tiny replica of a mosque; and several copies of the Quran… Read the Rest at: Republican Riot
