Police in The Netherlands have arrested a Turkish national after a Monday morning shooting on a tram in the city of Utrecht.

“The suspect, identified as Turkish-born Gokmen Tanis, 37, allegedly gunned down three people and wounded five others before fleeing in a car, officials said,” according to The New York Post. 

The number of wounded has risen to nine throughout the course of the day.

By midmorning, authorities were calling the shooting a terrorist attack. Police spokesman Bernhard Jens later said they were not “100 percent sure” of the motive. Other reports have claimed that the attack was a domestic dispute, and that the gunman had one specific target.

“The shooting sparked fears of a terrorist attack, but the man’s relatives have told Turkish news agency Anadolu that Tanis fired at a relative because of ‘family reasons,'” the report said. “He then shot others who tried to help the victim, they told the news outlet.”

A Turkish news agency made contact with Tanis’ father, who has reportedly not spoken to his son in 11 years. Mehmet Tanis lives in Turkey’s Kayseri province, and said that his son should be held responsible if he did, indeed, commit the attack.

“If he did it, he should pay the penalty,” he reportedly said.

PURE EVIL: Churches Torched and Razed to the Ground During Anti-Government Riots in Chile

Published

on

Another one of those “mostly peaceful protests” erupted over the weekend in Santiago, Chile, on the anniversary of last year’s protests—read: riots—against the Chilean government.

On Sunday demonstrators and criminals smashed up businesses, looted stores, attacked police, and even vandalized and burned two churches.

The riots happened one week prior to a referendum on a new constitution, of which the rioters are in favor. The current constitution was written during the autocratic rule of General Augusto Pinochet, with two-thirds of the Chilean electorate voting to adopt it back in 1980.

In addition to supporting a new constitution, the rioters claim to be dissatisfied with persisting economic inequality, inadequate health care, and insufficient pensions. This is despite, as the Wall Street Journal points out, economic growth and decreasing poverty over the years.

Some Chileans may have some legitimate grievances—I’m by no means an expert on the Chilean economy or political situation—but I will always side against the protesters when I see churches being desecrated and city blocks being destroyed. Far-left agitators are without a doubt behind these horrifying scenes. It’s too bad we no longer have General Pinochet around to deal with these Marxists the proper way.
