Nine people have been hospitalized following a stabbing attack at an apartment complex where refugee families live in Boise, Idaho, according to the Boise Police Department. Six of the victims are children.

"We haven't had anything involving this amount of victims in a single attack in Boise in the history of the department," Boise Police Chief William Bones told reporters following the Saturday evening attack.

The Boise Police Department said four of the victims are being treated for life-threatening injuries. The people injured include members of the refugee community.

Officers located 9 victims. Victims include members of the refugee community. Officers are still investigating why the suspect targeted these individuals.

Police responded to reports of an incident on Saturday evening at 8:46 p.m., as Bones described, and a 30-year-old man was taken into custody minutes later at gunpoint after he fled the scene.
Fucker.

Never a 'good guy with a gun' around when you need them....however...

At 8:46 pm on June 30, 2018, Boise Police were dispatched to a call regarding a man with a knife at an apartment complex on Wylie Ln and State St. Officers arrived and quickly located the suspect and took him into custody at 8:50 pm as he headed northbound near the apartments.
Four minutes is a good response time for the Boise PD.

I love the way the media tries to make this an immigration issue, because Trump. That some victims are immigrants/refugees is irrelevant to the story, and wouldn't even be reported except as background deep in the story if Trump wasn't President. But because he is it's in the headline.

How did you get from the mention that some were immigrants/refugees to the media trying to make it an immigration issue?
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

It's not "a mention", it's the headline. And read the comments in the stories, the dog whistle attempt to link this to Trump works wonders on the Democrat base.

Whatever. 6 children and 3 adults stabbed, some may die, none will ever be the same.

Do you think this would have made national headlines if the media wasn't trying to link it to Trump? If Trump wasn't President this story would have never been reported outside of Boise.

The very act of mentioning refugees is to bring attention to that detail. Especially in the headline. Obviously someone thought it's an issue worth making.

Including the detail about refugees makes it seem relevant. If it's not relevant (or not an issue), then why bother mentioning it, especially in the headline?

Example headlines:

Edited to add: In fact the WaPo article directly links the issue to Trump.

That is called "reporting the facts", which even the police reported.
@AP

BREAKING: Boise, Idaho, police say a man suspected in a mass stabbing that injured 9 targeted a 3-year-old's birthday party.
By all means, let us continue spinning it left, right, and sideways.

Not all facts are relevant. Clearly, mentioning refugees in the headline is intended to make that seem like an important and relevant fact.

Although I would agree in general that the news media are biased, I do not agree that the media is trying to link it to Trump, and yes, it would still be national news, because it is yet another horror story, and those sell newspapers.

Even Fox News repeats the Idaho Statesman report that refugee families live there:

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/07/01/9- ... e-say.html

Now people will try to understand "why" this latest criminal did it--I figure that's why they refer to refugee families, looking for a motive and all--and we'll all forget about it in a couple of days.

The man accused of stabbing nine people Saturday night — six of them children who were attending a birthday party — was arrested by Boise Police.

Timmy Kinner, 30, of Los Angeles, was arrested on nine felony charges of aggravated battery and six felony charges of injury to a child. He was booked into the Ada County Jail.

The victims, who range in age from 3 to 12, were attacked during a 3-year-old's birthday party at a low-income apartment complex on West State Street and Wylie Lane for refugee families. Four of the victims have life-threatening injuries.
Kinner, who is not a refugee, was a temporary resident at the apartment complex and was asked to leave Friday, Boise Police Chief Bill Bones said. He returned Saturday night to "exact vengeance," first targeting children, then the adults who interceded to protect them, Bones said at a press conference Sunday.

"This is an attack against those who are most vulnerable," said Bones, who was visibly emotional during the news conference.

...

Abdulridha and neighbors from Wylie Street apartments said the victims include an Iraqi woman and her children, as well as members of a Syrian family. Boise Police Department has not confirmed those details.

According to Abdulridha, others who live in the Wylie Street apartments heard a woman screaming and saw people running outside. He said neighbors in the apartment complex are not familiar with Kinner and aren't aware of a motive for the attack.
