CAUGHT: Mall massacre suspect ID’d as Turkish immigrant with violent past

by FOXNews.com  |  published on September 25, 2016

A suspected gunman believed to have killed five people at a Washington state mall was arrested Saturday, according to authorities.

At a news conference, officials said they had not ruled out any possible motives for why 20-year-old Arcan Cetin allegedly shot four women and one man at the Cascade Mall in Burlington Friday evening.

Island County Sheriff’s Lt. Mike Hawley told reporters that he spotted Cetin near the suspect’s home in Oak Harbor, around 30 miles due west of the mall. Hawley said he immediately recognized Cetin as the suspect, turned his patrol car around and arrested Cetin without incident.

“He said nothing,” said Hawley, who added that Cetin was unarmed and carrying a computer in a satchel when he was apprehended. “He was kind of zombie-like.”

Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock said Cetin had immigrated to the U.S. from Turkey and was a “legal permanent resident.” It was not immediately clear when Cetin came to the U.S.

    Like with the NY/NJ Bombings and MN Stabbings last week, this is yet another case of Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome: https://www.vdare.com/articles/what-is-immigrant-mass-murder-syndrome?redirect=http://www.vdare.com/articles/what-is-immigrant-mass-murder-syndrome

    People should blame these riots and murders in our neighborhoods as caused Repubs and TPs who have cut spending on FBI and CIA operations to fix the deficit whey they caused. These Repubs want this country back to the 50s and 60s when Blacks and White women were 3rd class Americans. I have told them that won’t happen. Businesses owned by TPs and Repubs and state governments with Repub or TPs as governors do not want to hire Blacks and racial minorities. Repubs and TPs want Black males in prisons. That is the real cause of these problems. Please join me and vote for Hillary on November 8 at 9 am.

    who, are these stupid people? who, can’t figure out the motive that muslims like to commit mass murder.

  • David Islay

    Hispanic?? more than likely a muslim. Need to find the mosque he attended and eliminate further terrorism.

  • Holy Joe

    I was betting that he was not a Roman Catholic Hispanic ? – but yet another disgruntled Islamic alien, legal or illegal, semi, or totally undocumented miserable Migrant, beloved by the Democrats and the Muslim in the Whitehouse, but unhappy that the only real way to success in the U.S.A. was to work hard and earn it.

  • Rodney Steward

    The media will do everything in their power to cover up anything muslim and in a lot of cases blacks when it comes to these killing! Now most won’t even tell the race of any crimes now!

    JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED AND IS ABLE TO TAKE OVER AS OUR PRESIDENT.

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLE 2015 AND YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW WHY.

    BELOW IS A GOOD REASON WHY I BELIEVE THAT A TAKEOVER TRY IS POSSIBLE. HOW CAN THE BIASED NEWS SAY OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.

    President Obama: This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists:
    * It was you . . . who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”
    * It was you . . . who on ABC News referenced -“My Muslim faith.”
    * It was you who . . . gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.
    * It was you who . . . wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”
    * It was you who . . . assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”
    * It was you who . . . bowed in submission before the Saudi King.
    * It was you who . . . sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.
    * It was you who . . . exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.
    * It was you who . . . purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator ” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.
    * It was you who . . . mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.
    * It was you who . . . raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.
    * It was you who . . . instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.
    * It was you who . . . refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.
    * It was you who . . . ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.
    * It was you who . . . appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.
    * It was you who . . . appointed rabid Islamists to Homeland Security.
    * It was you who . . . said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.
    * It was you who . . . as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.
    * It was you who . . . was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.
    * It was you who . . . curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.
    * It was you who . . . refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.
    * It is you who . . . has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.
    * It was you . . . who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.
    * It was you who . . . funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.
    * It was you who . . . ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.
    * It was you who . . . directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.
    * It was you who . . . funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.
    * It is you who . . . follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.
    * It is you who . . . departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.
    * It was you who . . . was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.
    * It was you who . . . appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    * It was you who . . . said this country is not a Christian nation.
    * It was you who . . . said the Muslim call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.
    * IT WAS YOU WHO GAVE 150 BILLION PLUS TO IRAN.
    * IT WAS YOU WHO RANSOMED 4 PEOPLE FOR 400 MILLION/
    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIATO TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

    VOTE DONALD TRUMP.

      • Holy Joe

        The real aim of the Democratic Party is to de-stabilize America, by bringing in as many of the modern era idle undocumented potential Welfare Recipients from the Middle East as they possibly can jam in. Their idea is to totally overwhelm the actual part of the American electorate that can still think for themselves so as to perpetuate the voting strength of the idiots that think that wealth will be given to them by our currently Communistic leaning Government that is growing and prevailing in North America today. Canada to the North need not smile they are taking in the same massed socialistic dregs of the world. The total wealth of the North American Continent was made by self dependent immigrants many years ago, not welfare recipients hoping to become leeches upon the lives of hard working tax paying Americans.
        The Clinton woman will turn the U.S.A. into another Venezuela as she stuffs her plunder into the Clinton Foundation – foreign based in Canada. (To avoid U.S. Tax Investigators).

        • MoonBeamWatcher

In my Home Town, every time they report a Murder and only when you see the Picture you can tell that it was a Black on Black Crime! If it is a Terror attack, it’s a Muslim, If it’s a mass Killing, it’s a Democrat, If it’s a Cop killing, It’s a Black!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These Bastards are starting to Piss Me Off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
