A nanny killer

Al Jazeera report:

A nanny beheaded a young girl in her care and brandished her severed head at a metro station in Moscow before being arrested at the scene.

The veiled woman, dressed in all black, shouted on Monday that she was “a terrorist”, but police said they suspect she is mentally unsound.

“According to preliminary information, the child’s nanny – a native of one of the Central Asian countries, born in 1977 – waited until the parents left the apartment with their elder child and – guided by unknown motives – killed the little one, set the apartment on fire and left the scene,” the police investigative committee said in a statement. …

Polina Nikolskaya, a reporter at the RBC daily newspaper, saw the women on the street. 

“She was standing near the metro entrance and caught my attention because she was screaming ‘Allahu Akbar’,” she told the Reuters news agency. 

This is why Donald Trump may win the Republican nomination. His policy to ban Muslim immigration is wrong and repulsive on multiple levels, but people are scared when they read stories like this. Now it seems she is mentally unwell, and may not even be that religious. But the sad reality is that for many people, the most scary two words they can hear is someone yelling out loudly “Allahu Akbar”.
