Tire Iron to the Head: That's What They Do To You If You Look A Little Weird

Abby Zimet

A new Rasmussen poll
has 57% of people concerned the Fort Hood shootings will prompt a
backlash against Muslims. Good thing: The insanity has started.
Approached by a bearded man in a robe, Florida Marine reservist and apparent
beefcake Jasen Bruce attacked
him with a tire iron, chased and pinned him, and told 911 he'd captured
a terrorist - who was a Greek Orthodox priest asking for directions.
Bruce said the guy yelled "Allahu Akbar"; clearly he should have
yelled, "You are a racist idiot!"

 "That's what they tell you right before they blow you up," Bruce told police.
