Another example of how fucked up human beings can be. I feel for the families and also the community. It's not the first time this sort of thing has happened in Colorado and it worries me how much more paranoia could be bred.
It annoys me when the news does say, "reports say that this wasn't likely a terrorist attack", like the word 'terrorist' has lost its actual meaning. It's a buzz word that stinks of paranoia, the fact they have to mention it bothers me. It's as though we should be expecting terrorist attacks from Jihadist Muslims or should be concerned about them. If they happen, they happen and you have to deal with it. There's a risk, but as long as measures are put and kept in place to prevent it, then the risk is reduced, so why load the idea with paranoia? Is the fact that this shooting isn't considered a terrorist attack make it no-so-bad? "It's okay guys, it wasn't a Muslim, just some crazy local on a killing spree again".
The fact the word 'terrorism' carries so much stigma is a sign that they have succeeded. But that would take this topic on too much of a tangent.
Hopefully the guy gets punished severely. I know he won't get what he deserves, but I hope the book is really thrown at him. Interestingly, the discussion I was reading this morning, Fox News lovers (person stated it, not playing stereotypes here) that he should face a public hanger and used this as a lobby to preach how the US should bring back public hangings. As if people getting off on watching other people die is going to help the problem.
