Washington State Police Looking for a Masked Gunman Who Shot Sikh

A Sikh man said a gunman approached him as he worked on his car in his suburban Seattle driveway and told him to “go back to your own country” before shooting him in the arm.

Police in the city of Kent are searching for the shooter and have contacted the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. It comes after an Indian man was killed and another wounded in a recent shooting at a Kansas bar that federal agencies are investigating as a hate crime after witnesses say the suspect yelled “get out of my country.”

“With recent unrest and concern throughout the nation, this can get people emotionally involved, especially when (the crime) is directed at a person for how they live, how they look,” Kent police Cmdr. Jarod Kasner told The News Tribune of Tacoma.


The problem is that dreadful incidents like this will be juxtaposed with legitimate criticism and political action.

This was an act of a dolt, not a law-abiding rational person.

    Moron. Sikhs are not moslems. The two groups hate one another. Sikhs are had working, honorable people, FTMP.

    • The joke will be on him when they slap the cuffs on him.

    • The commingling of Sikhs with Muslims only helps Muslims.

      There are 19 sikh MP’s (liberal, ndp & cons) in current parliament NONE opposed liberal motion M-103.
      First, and the largest before 9/11, mass murder was committed by sikh terrorists when they blew up air -india flight killing 330 innocents.
      First honor killing in Canada was committed by sikhs. Amamndeep Atwal, a 17 year old girl was brutally murdered by her father for going out with a white boy therefore dishonoring family’s name.
      Their temples (gurudawara) & annual parade (baisakhi) in metro vancouver honor & openly displays the images of dead & living sikh terrorists.
      Drug trade & trafficking in BC is largely controlled by immigrant sikhs.
      And not to forget all the occasional fights between different factions over control of their gurudawara.
      Not a day pass by without a shooting in among sikhs in surrey, BC.
      So much for hardworking & honorable sikh people.

        How easily we forget.

    • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

      I would not go as far as saying honorable.

      Come to Vancouver, 99 out of a hundred slumlords are either Chinese or Sikhs.

      The most violent drug gangs….. Sikh’s

      Then of course the yearly parade in Surrey with the photo’s of Sikh terrorists
      plastered on the side of floats.

    White – stout – 6 foot 6 – masked – hates people from their own country which they should go back to – who wash their cars in their driveways – shoots people in the arm.
    Got it. Easy one.

    The sikh religion with its warrior trappings was a direct result of. and in response to; extreme muslim aggression that continues to this day.

    “…This was an act of a dolt, not a law-abiding rational person…”

    We won’t know till the perp is identified whether we’re dealing with chronic white racism or a “lone wolf” minority.

    • mobuyus

      We are in bumper to bumper “lone wolf” gridlock.

  • P_F

    Won’t be surprised if it turns out to be another hoax crime.
