    Hey....WAIT a second....

    I thought Islamic terrorism in the US wasnt something people should worry about? I thought every time its been brought up its been tea party conservative whack job types overreacting?

    My first suggestion would be for civilians to stop fanning the flames and putting themselves at risk. As I said before it isn't unprecedented for the US gov/ authorities to step in when they think that hate speech could endanger lives, if I'm not mistaken didn't your government intervene in the case of that Florida pastor?

    I can't be the only one amused that they tried to attack some people in Texas and we're both shot dead before they caused harm. It wasn't France. Our cops are armed to the teeth and so are the citizens.

    Exercising free speech doesn't come without risks and it has always been this way. Now it is Islam which is thought to be above criticism or ridicule, earlier it was the Communists, Nazis, Fascists and every other petty dictator throughout the world..

    Normally there would never have been a contest like this but a point had to be made, and these people had the guts to make it.

    Geller paid for at least 40 police to be on hand during the cartoon event. There was a SWAT team present as can be seen in the video from inside the building when shots were fired. Not quite comparable to the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris

    And the problem is that those that don't have more than a few self centered, easily led cretins that were born here and don't appreciate what they have either, so there is support for using up, and destroying what is America, which makes it doubly sad.
    And there wasn't much killing of others because someone may have insulted their God.

    Yes, it does.
    It wasn't a war on Islam it was a war on terror, a war which is still going on

    Not surprising given that Geert Wilders was a guest speaker. http://drrichswier.com/2015/05/04/ge...mad-art-event/

    The best part of this is that these jihadists sons of whores got killed. To hell with them. Now if we would only starting eliminating their pals overseas by the boatload, wherever they can be located. I doubt these curs have much heart, when they're facing artillery and B-1's, rather than murdering unarmed, helpless captives.

    I gather this was an exhibit of artwork that depicts Muhammad, a la Charlie Hebdo, in defiance of radical Muslims and in affirmation of freedom of speech.

    Two guys drove up armed with guns and explosives, opened fire, and were killed straight away by return fire.

    It's a bad idea to go gunning for any group of Texans without a lot of firepower.
    Garland is a burb of Dallas, where I live. Actually, although it's a bad idea to go gunning after a group of pickup truck bubbas in Texas without a lot of fire power, the two guys DID have a lot of fire power. They were in full body armor, had assault weapons, and there were items in their car that may have been explosives. And who killed them were not the bubbas. There was one off duty cop with a regular duty gun, and a security guard, both sitting in a car outside. The terrorists drove up and opened fire on the police car. The off duty cop got out, aimed, and killed both of 'em tout suite. The security guard was shot in the leg. He's been released from the hospital and is fine.

    Two very stupid terrorists. Dead as a doornail, now. Rightly so. All because they don't recognize free speech. Yeah, the group's event was goading the muslims and done intentionally to anger them. But they have a right to do that.
