Man With Gun At Salt Lake City Store Stops Man On Stabbing Spree

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


A citizen with a gun stopped a knife wielding man as he began stabbing people Thursday evening at the downtown Salt Lake City Smith’s store.
Police say the suspect purchased a knife inside the store and then turned it into a weapon. Smith’s employee Dorothy Espinoza says, “He pulled it out and stood outside the Smiths in the foyer. And just started stabbing people and yelling you killed my people. You killed my people.”
Espinoza says, the knife wielding man seriously injured two people. “There is blood all over. One got stabbed in the stomach and got stabbed in the head and held his hands and got stabbed all over the arms.” Then, before the suspect could find another victim – a citizen with a gun stopped the madness. “A guy pulled gun on him and told him to drop his weapon or he would shoot him. So, he dropped his weapon and the people from Smith’s grabbed him.”
You won’t be seeing this on CNN anytime soon.  You won’t be seeingit on your TV at all probably, unless you live in SLC.  Thank god that man had a gun, yup I said it. -Mort

      This story is so old that the bats have left the cave. COME ON get real! If you cannot come up with good stories that are current you need to get out of the BUSINESS.

        So i checked the link to see if the correct date was mentioned, anywhere? Nothing, this ain’t right.

        @Mort Amsel… i don’t mind that this story is ancient history; it raises a timely point regarding gun control debate. You present it as though it should be on tonight’s news with top billing. That ain’t right.

      The traitorous MSM again. it’s not what they say as what they ARE NOT TELLING YOU!

      I get my news from the internet. Thought they still protect gays and negroes and will kick you out if you use the term “negro” to describe negroes.

      If you write something about gays not being Biblically acceptable you can get kicked out too.

      Two sites guilty of this is WND.COM and THEBLAZE.COM. Other smaller sites will delete your comments too. Joseph Farah has banned me completely. Amazing for a Christian site, huh?

      I do not write profanity. My comments are salient, but not derogatory, even though I write the FACTS!

        How would we know, Anonymous, if what you say is true? I noted a few errors in your post and got the impression you are trying a little too hard. Just give us your version of truth, we’ll decide whats fact.

          OK, I used the term “homos” (exactly as written) on the Blaze and they banned me from commenting.

          On the WND.COM I use the word “negro” and they finally banned me permanently. But meanwhile I would see what I worse examples than mine, as long as you “derogatized” whites in many ways.

          That was my impression. In another words “negroes” were a protected class on the WND.COM site. YEP!

          I wrote to Mr. Farah about this and naturally got no response, this time. He is so afraid of being labeled a racist. Coward, YEP! Has to protect his advertisers. I know.

          As someone said “black” is not a race. Negro is the proper term. YEP!
