Two people were stabbed to death Friday and a third injured by a knife-wielding nut job who was screaming anti-Muslim epithets at two young Muslim women on a Portland, Oregon commuter train.

In the midst of this nut job's ranting some people on the train attempted to get the man to moderate his behavior. Instead he attacked them with a knife. The knife user bailed out of the train at the next stop and was arrested by the local cops. The women who were the targets of most of the man's rants left the train before the cops showed up.

Police have charged Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, from North Portland, with murder. He also faces hate crimes charges.

All I can say it is a good thing that no one on the train had a gun, or somebody might have gotten hurt.
