A shooting at a mosque in Quebec City Sunday night has left 5 dead others feared wounded. “A few dozen” people were said to be in attendance for the evening prayer at the Islamic cultural centre of Quebec where the shooting took place just after 8 PM EST.
CBC Reports that two suspects have been arrested following the attack, one of which was apprehended following a chase near l’île d’Orléans.
An anonymous witness says of the shooter: “It seemed to me that they had a Quebecois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot they yelled, ‘Allahu akbar!’ The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head.”
It has been reported that mainly men were in attendance at the prayer, and the witness suggested that some children were present, including “a three-year-old who was with his father.”
“Why is this happening here? This is barbaric,” the mosque’s president, Mohamed Yangui, said of the shooting.
The Islamic cultural centre of Quebec was previously targeted by Islamophobes when a pig’s head was left outside the door during Ramadan last June.
Is Going to Law School Worth It Anymore?A 2015 study by the Access Group Center for Research and Policy Analysis found that only one in five people who graduated from law school between 2010 and 2015 strongly agreed that obtaining a law degree was worth the cost. Perhaps more troubling, only 38% of law school graduates, down from 56% between 2000 and 2009, described themselves as having a good job after graduation. With four out of five recent law school graduates at least somewhat regretting their decision to attend – and six out of 10 failing to find a good job after graduating – it makes sense to examine whether going to law school is still worth it in 2017. Keeping in mind the high tuition costs, interest rates and potential salaries, another good metric to consider would be its ROI (return on investment), calculated as its salary-to-debt ratio in a new study by online lender SoFi.
