    Might not have been politically correct, pillow. You know how the Kentucky Newspaper is, don’t you. You know — an Arab committing a crime for the second time. Probably was abused as a child. Might have gone to JCPS. There’s probably lots of reasons in the Ky. Newspaper’s mindlessness that prevented this knowledge == OF THE FACT THE SALEMNIAH [WHATEVER] is a serial criminal.

    Salameih. That would be a family/tribal name, and I dont think they would be “arab”. Probably ethnically Syrian (persian) or Palestinian if I had to guess based solely on the name. Just guessing. And there is a difference.

    Gil: Your ‘guessing’ is acceptable. One thing’s for sure, though — the guy’s a serial criminal, who is in bad need of a ‘striped suit’ to wear for a reasonably long time. To be toting a gun and shooting it off WHILE awaiting resolution of a prior felony — is a ‘dead marker’ for a guy whose an ‘explosion’ await the ultimate event.
