Via Bayou Renaissance Man. A very in-depth report of the Westgate Mall Terrorist attack. This passage caught my eye.
News of the assault was beginning to spread via frantic phones calls, texts, and WhatsApp messages. Westgate is in the heart of a Kenyan-Indian part of the city, and the close-knit community there knew better than to rely on the authorities to send help. Instead, the call went out to the community’s own licensed gun holders, who were organized into self-appointed armed neighborhood watch units.

Terror at the Mall..I have it in my DVR, didn’t know it was in Youtube. PEOPLE MUST WATCH THIS DOCUMENTARY!
Only four gunmen.
Thinking about that, and about our porous southern border should give you pause.
And if it doesn’t, well, good luck. You’ll need it.
“The mall had only five exits: the basement car park, the rooftop car park, the main pedestrian entrance, an emergency exit in the back corner (of the mall’s six emergency stairwells only one led directly to the outside), and a delivery area for the Nakumatt supermarket. ”
Good Lord, they were fish in a barrel. How horrifying.
