Yesterday, authorities continued trying to piece together why Turkish born Arcan Cetin would kill 5 people Friday night at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, WA.
He is scheduled to appear in court this morning. More details will be forth coming throughout the day.
Last week the Burlington School District was advised by a Seattle Law firm that they will be forced to approve an after school Satanic Club on campus. If they decline the club, they will be sued. The school district's legal council, Duncan Fobes, says they will lose.
And tonight more than 100,000,000 people will watch Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton debate how they can fix things.
America is under siege---and looking for answers.

Earlier this week, a high school teacher removed the US flag from its stand, asking the students if anyone had a lighter or scissors.
When none of the students had a lighter or scissors with them, the high school teacher threw the flag on the floor and stomped on it.
A sign of our times?
It is, but it's more than merely a "sign," and it isn't only in our times.
While a student at Bellevue College, I witnessed a similar situation. And that was in the 1960s.
Both teachers, now and then, provided an explanation.

A US District Court Judge has ruled that the Bremerton School District in Washington State is not required to give Coach Joe Kennedy his job back.
Kennedy was fired for taking a knee and saying a quiet, private prayer following each football game.
The message? You can take a knee in protest of God or Country, but not to say a prayer.
