Alexandre Bissonnette Charged With Quebec Mosque Shooting

February 14, 2017 Tom Cleary 1

Quebec, Canada: A 27-year old man, Alexandre Bissonnette, was arrested on charges of shooting and killing six Muslim men who were praying in a mosque. This mass shooting has many features that are identical to other similar shootings. For example, the suspect is described as a right-wing extremist, he has ties to the military, witnesses say there were multiple shooters, law enforcement says there was only one shooter, a second man was arrested and set free, authorities have not released the CCTV videos, and reporting of the event is tied to a political agenda against Trump’s immigration program. Trudeau said Canada will welcome Muslims turned away by the US.
