    I dont know exactly who did that. CNN is reporting that it was the Garland Police Department. At the same time, other sources indicate that there were uhmmm..... "private security" guards of the expensive kind there. The men in the unmarked uniforms that I have seen in photos appear more like high end contract mercenaries than Police Department SWAT to me. At the same time, they were answering press questions which could mean police.

    In either case, they clearly knew what they were doing. Though I avoid giving needless offense to anybody as it causes needless confrontations, if I was going out of my way to provoke a large group of people, they are the type of security that I would want around me.

    Some people dont respect other religions or religion generally. Should westerners be made to cow tow to muslims for their self esteem?

    Of course not. Why treat them any differently than anyone else? What have you got against equality?

    And in the US that can be done, but apparently the religion of peace can't handle that.

    All this, but was shot by a traffic cop. no plate carrier or moral patches required.


    Most of what these soldiers cops did was prevent the attacked from leaving.
    If you build an army of 100 lions and their leader is a dog, in any fight, the lions will die like a dog. But if you build an army of 100 dogs and their leader is a lion, all dogs will fight like a lion.

    Ah...its more of that "if you wear that skirt, its likely you will be raped" logic.

    Kobie, please read books. Islamic culture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The fact that islamic terror is a problem wherever there are muslims should be a hint to you.

    I know exactly what it means. I understand it doesn't mean freedom of consequence, but killing people over a caricature is not a lawful consequence to anything.

    Can someone square this with Islam being the religion of peace?

Does that mean we can soon expect other responses as a natural 'consequence' from extremists in the US?
    I wonder if they would say that a girl in a bikini or wearing skimpy clothes should expect the consequence of being raped ?

    They will be at peace when they have eliminated all others from the face of the earth.
