Four people are dead and two are injured after a Wednesday night mass stabbing in Southern California, and the media appears none the wiser.
“A man who was ‘full of anger’ went on a two-hour stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California, killing four people and wounding two others, authorities said Wednesday,” according to AP. “The 33-year-old Garden Grove man was taken into custody after he came out of a 7-Eleven in Santa Ana, southeast of Los Angeles, and dropped a knife along with a handgun that he had taken from a guard, police said.”
The man has not been identified.
Despite the fact that the main claimed several lives in an act of terrorism, the mainstream media has largely failed to report on the incident. It has not trended on Twitter, and there has not been a debate about “knife control.”
The media cannot politicize this tragedy as they did with the weekend mass shootings.
The report said the suspect and all of the victims were Hispanic – perhaps another reason our esteemed media has largely ignored the killing spree.
Police said that the suspect robbed a convenience story and an insurance business, and managed to steal a gun from a security guard.
”Undercover detectives tracked the suspect’s silver Mercedes to the parking lot of the 7-Eleven store in Santa Ana and within a minute of their arrival the man came out of the store, carrying a large knife and a gun that he had cut from the belt of a security guard after stabbing him,” the report said.
Eventually, police caught up with man and ordered him to drop his weapons. He complied and was arrested. Authorities later found another victim of the stabbings dead at a nearby Subway sandwich shop.
