Well, it remains a “mystery” to the media and public officials who want to keep their heads firmly buried in the sand. Anyone with a functioning brain knows this was a terror attack.
Hurrying to class at Ohio State University on Monday morning, education student Kerri Strausbaugh was suddenly aware of chaos unfolding around her — people screaming and running for their lives.
She looked around to see what was happening and saw a stranger coming straight at her with a butcher knife. They locked eyes and then he said something she will never forget.
“I’m going to kill you.”
Muslim guy who spent seven years in Pakistan before coming here says he’s want to kill you, but motive unknown.
The Honda Civic mounted the curb and slammed into a large planter. The rear swung around and clipped several people, including the science major, who was knocked to the ground.
“I thought it was an accident,” she said. “I looked to see if the driver was OK and then I saw him pull out a knife and then I knew — this was not an accident.”
Artan, she said, “let out a war cry.”
“He was angry and full of hate. He did start chasing people. I didn’t stick around.”
A war cry? Might that have been Allahu Akbar bu any chance? Meanwhile, we’re now being told the dead terrorist was a nice guy or something.
Columbus State said he had no behavioral or disciplinary problems while he was there from the fall of 2014 until this past summer.
He started at Ohio State in August as a business student studying logistics management.
He was personable and willing to be interviewed and photographed, said Ohio State student reporter Kevin Stankiewicz.
Jack Ouham, owner of a market near Artan’s apartment, saw Artan almost every day when he stopped in for snacks but never alcohol or cigarettes.
He was never angry, Ouham said.
“Very nice guy,” he said.
Yeah, except when he tried to run over and butcher people while screaming “I’m going to kill you.”
Otherwise, great guy.
