Crazed people, evil people, people intent on murder are predators, they seek easy marks, like people in gun free malls. Jenn Jacques explains
The Crossroads Mall in St. Cloud, MN was the scene of a frightening attack shortly after 8 p.m. Saturday night. Authorities were called to the scene when witnesses reported an individual was stabbing people with a knife.
Ashley Bayne works at the J.C. Penney store in the mall. She was off Saturday night, but was visiting a friend at the store when the incident took place.
“I went closer to the mall entrance by J.C. Penney’s and I was looking at some jeans and all the sudden people were just running in chaos,” Bayne said. “They were screaming, ‘Someone’s stabbing people in the mall,’ and people were just really frantic and were running.”
It was unclear how many people were stabbed or what the extent of their injuries was.
“There were so many cop cars just responding to the area,” Bayne said.
“When I got in my car to get out people were speeding out of there,” she said. “By the time I left my coworker had texted me saying they had all gone into lockdown in the mall. There were no notifications in the mall at all, it was just people running and screaming.”
Police confirmed there are multiple victims with stab wounds and that the suspect is dead at the scene.
Here is your money quote folks, this could have been avoided if….
Just one armed citizen could have ended this attacker’s rampage before they had the opportunity to move on to their next victim.
When will we learn this lesson. Disarming good people only aids evil people
