Suicide bombing in Oklahoma

Another Oklahoma bombing, suicide-bombing this time, where only the suicide-bomber got injured. And Islam was not involved. Sweet. A University of Oklahoma student with “emotional difficulties” was identified Sunday as the person who apparently committed suicide near a packed football stadium using an explosive attached to his body. The remains were believed to be those of Joel Henry Hinrichs III, according to Salvador Hernandez, special agent in charge of the FBI in Oklahoma. University President David Boren has said the blast was an apparent suicide. “We know that he has had what I would call emotional difficulties in the past,” Boren said. “There is certainly no evidence at this point which points to any other kind of motivation other than his personal problems.” Life's little victories man. Life's little victories!

Just curious...is it safe to assume that ANY suicide bomber has "emotional difficulties" by definition?
Why don't we ever hear that islamic suicide bombers have "emotional difficulties"?

So he thought he was making a statement about what when he blew himself up? And assuming he didn't intend to maim others.

"My life is horrible, just wanted everyone to know."

what the heck is it with all these White males, ages 18-30, trying to blow up stuff in my city (OKC)?

We need homeland security to issue a screening against white males in Oklahoma City (except me, of course).

The record speaks for itself. These white males are a danger to society and all white males should be screened.



BAWWWWAHHHHH

Gluphus, so you want the police to stop monitoring Al Qaeda, and start monitoring Al Cracker?

Sounds good to me.

:P

I don't think they are giving the whole story and downplaying this alot. He blew himself up just outside of the microbiology building. I think he intended to hurt people but with an unstable explosive they don't always work as they are intended to do. Coming to a mall near you? This is really scarey and no one is really giving it much press.

Apparently he was Muslim.

He attended the same mosque as Zacharias Massoui.
