TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Police have arrested two Hmong suspects in an attack at a Hmong New Year's festival in Tulsa, Okla., in which five people were wounded.

Capt. Mike Williams says police don't know a motive for Saturday night's shooting at the Green Country Event Center.

He says a police helicopter that was in the area spotted a suspicious vehicle driving away with its headlights off. He says officers arrested the two suspects after pulling them over and recovered a semi-automatic handgun they believe was used in the attack.

All five victims are Hmong. Williams says two are being treated for torso wounds and the other three are being treated for arm or leg wounds. He says one victim is in critical condition and another may lose a leg.

Too short to excerpt.

IIRC, there was some serious violence in rural WI a few years back perpetrated by Hmong refugees/immigrants.

Anyone remember that?

Yes, now that you mention it, I do remember that being reported.

But keep in mind that all cultures are equal, right?

Oh, yes indeed they are.....   /heavy sarcasm

The incident I'm thinking about was in 2004 and involved a Hmong man shooting at WI hunters, but I saw in a quick search that there has been a significant amount of violence in WI by Hmong gangs.

Of course, the leftists blame it all on the racism of whites (which I am not denying exists, btw), but it looks as though there's been a significant amount of violence in that immigrant community.

(And from the search, I also see they don't treat women very well either.  NO surprise there.  The only cultures who treat women well are those which have been influenced by the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose teachings about women were revolutionary).

It was just creepy enough for me to remember it.

The guy was on some kind of hunting platform, IIRC, shooting white hunters.

Of course the left blamed the hunters, but that made no sense.

I believe Hmong men have a tendency towards violence.

(Remember as well, that they had no written language, until I believe they came to America.  They were hill people - very backwards, very uneducated.  Therefore it MUST be our fault that they are violent................right??)

Isn't it always "our" fault when someone else hates us and our society?
