typical ... they have "no suspects", but they're rounding up Arabs anyway.

Oklahoma City - all over again.

On the night of Yum Kippur the police arrested a man "dressed in combat outfit" from a New York area (could be in the Bronx or North Jersey, I can't remember the name of the Temple off hand). There were news coverage of "Man in combat outfit in Jewish Temple." A day later it turns out the man was a Jew himself and also had served in the Israeli army. He had gone to the temple to pray for an aunt who passed away.

Right about now, the Arabs can't seem to do anything right - or the media coverage would have you believe that.

Scary to live in the nation's capital right now. I think I'll figure out where the Israeli embassy is, and avoid the area.

Israeli embassy is (if memory serves) up near Connecticut Ave, near the Zoo, near a bunch of other embassies.

The shootings took place in Rogers Park. I am so surprised I could have a heart attack. It seems they have caught the shooters.

All three morons have been charged with hate crimes. The Trib has an article with the specifics. If you live in the area the frequency for the 20th and 24th police districts is 460.375.
