Where is the public outrage and concern about this double homicide from the community?? Since these victims were murdered with a knife, public outrage isn't warranted? So sad for Nasher and Pepaki's family members and friends. I don't understand how this is just brushed under the rug by the normally vocal readers.

Who brushed it under the rug? There's been plenty of posts.

Compared to how many Gilroy gun massacre posts?

But go ahead and deflect to knives.

Motive + defendant's mental state will have to be established.

Yemeni background is immaterial unless the defendant & victims were acquainted and involved in other matters...back to motive factor.

Whataboutism at it's finest: KNIVES!!

I too have seen plenty on this crime, considering it's location to PA and magnitude. What rug was this "brushed under"? As the poster above mentioned, I saw several Embarcadero threads. Where's the thread about the supremacist hater in Gilroy? That's a relevant data point in comparison, particularly with all the local large gatherings.

Such a strange post.
