Someone Was Beheaded in Oklahoma City

|

A man who had been fired from a food processing plant in an Oklahoma City suburb beheaded a woman with a knife and was attacking another worker when he was shot and wounded by a company official, police said Friday.

The 30-year-old man, who has not yet been charged, stabbed Colleen Hufford, 54, severing her head in Thursday's attack at Vaughan Foods, Moore Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said.

"Yes, she was beheaded," Lewis told The Associated Press before a Friday news conference.

  1. Ahhhh…the beauty and the joy of “islam”.

    The world puts up with this vulgar, ignorant cult at its peril.

    1. “AlgerHiss”,

      Are you aware that there have been other cases in our country where ex-employees and current employees have entered their previous place/current place of employment and attacked the individuals there even though they were not members of the same religion that this murderer seems to be?

      Initiating force against innocents is not original to any religion, ideology, et cetera.

      1. Well, yeah…I have heard of that.

        But not many take a hatchet, machete, axe, meat cleaver, hacksaw…whatever…and cut someone’s head off.

        That is usually done by either a complete psychopath such as Ed Gein, Jeff Dahmer or an “islamic”.

        1. “AlgerHiss”,

          If this was not another tragic case of a disgruntled and mentally unstable individual murdering his or her fellow employees, and if it was, as you seem to suggest, an attack motivated by religious views alone, I would like you to explain to me why the attacker waited until now to initiate his violence (or “strike at the enemies of his religion” if you prefer).

          Specifically, why not choose a more effective means by which he could serve and advance his “cult’s” agenda?

          You mentioned two fairly well-known serial murderers, both of whom killed many more individuals to achieve their goals.

          1. Weird, how as soon as I heard beheading, I immediately surmised “Islamist,” and then it turned out he was, huh?

            Must have just been a coincidence that this beheader, too, was muslim!

      2. Initiating force against innocents is not original to any religion, ideology, et cetera.

        No, but there seems to be only one still killing people simply because said people don’t worship the same delusion or do so in the approved manner.

      3. Initiating force against innocents is not original to any religion, ideology, et cetera.

        Red isn’t blue but so what? Are you claiming that religion had nothing to do with this? That it doesn’t matter if it is because of religion because other ones have been bad too?

        I am so glad knowing that Islam isn’t a threat to me. I don’t go to Moore that often and it is several miles from my home so I am probably safe, my children too.

    2. Amen.

  2. Irony: the suspect has a “peace be with you” tattoo.

  3. Good thing it wasn’t a “gun-free workplace”.

    1. “Good thing it wasn’t a ‘gun-free workplace’.”

      I certainly hope it isn’t, otherwise Mr. Vaughan (the chief operating officer who shot and disabled the murderer) may be fired and/or subject to legal repercussions.

      1. He may be subject to legal repercussions anyway. You wouldn’t believe the world of civil action shit you can bring down on yourself by shooting someone. Just defending against it can cost a small fortune.

        1. This is Oklahoma we are talking about. I doubt there will be any negative repercussions for this guy. A parade, maybe.

          1. Local tv news says the shooter was a cop. So I guess he’s got nothing to worry about anyway.

            1. Sigh. One of these days I’m going to learn to scroll down before posting.

      2. I think the guy was a deputy or former deputy or quasi-deputy or something, so he probably gets professional courtesy regardless.

  4. Strap this dude to a neutron bomb and drop him on Tikrit.

    Prob-lem sol-ved.

  5. Hmnnn, without knowing anything else, let’s take a wild guess as to what religion the perpetrator subscribes…

  6. Thank you, Mr. Vaughn, for converting me to a dues paying member of the NRA.

  7. See? America has it’s beheadings too! We’re not any better than ISIS! It’s not just Islam!

    And right in the middle of the heartland of America! Probably some crazed anti government libertarian nut job! Or a fundamentalist Christian! Or both!

    Let me see here…

    No Islam to see here folks! Everybody move along!

    1. Let’s take a look at what’s been reported.
      Follower of Islam
      Had Arabic tattoos
      Tried to convert others
      Was fired after an argument about stoning women
      Took someone’s head off.

      The evidence is clear. He was a fanatical devotee of Alice in Wonderland.

  8. But don’t worry though…those fanatical muslims of ISIS aren’t a threat, even though there’s 30,000 of them, and they’ve got a billion dollars or so to play with.

    1. Not sure how much of a threat they are, but they are unquestionably, indubitably, irrefutably, NOT Islamic.

      Obama and George W. both assured me that Islam is a religion of peace, and Obama, being an expert in religion as well as the Constitution, has declared that no god condones the killing of innocents. Accordingly, I have concluded that Quetzacoatl and Kali, among others, were both not gods, and that many ancient religions were not actually religions.
