    Well and a good many of you would claim he's obviously got ties to the TEA party.

    You really need to get your head out of the segregation era. It's long over.

    Maybe we should target the social problems that cause "terrorism" instead of trying to make "terrorists" out of US citizens.
    Most of the social problems today are a result of LBJ's Great Society programs.

    Using your definition of lone wolf, every workplace attack is terrorism, and you have to use an extremely loose definition of hate crime to cover this. He didn't go hunting 'whitey', he was seeking revenge for being fired.

    Pretty simple- cause and effect, no different than hundreds of other workplace murders, most are a result of being demoted or fired, next is divorce or failed office romance.

    Terrorism.... naaaawwww...
    Unless some sort of Islamic manifesto from this guy shows up on YouTube in the next few days, I think you're right about the attack not being "terrorism."

    A beheading in Oklahoma: Was it terrorism or workplace violence?

    Nolen, who was charged with first-degree murder last week and is likely to face the death penalty, "openly admitted to beheading" Hufford and trying to do the same to Johnson, according to a court affidavit. Authorities said he told investigators he had felt "oppressed" at work and was angry with Johnson, who had filed the complaint that led to his suspension. Johnson, who is white, and Nolen, who is African-American, had gotten into an argument about race, according to law enforcement officials.

    "He didn't like white people," Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn said at a press conference last week, declining to elaborate further on their altercation. While Nolen told police he had deliberately gone after Johnson and planned to attack two other people, Hufford had not been a specific target, Mashburn said. She was just in the wrong place at the wrong time

    However, the evidence would certainly point to it being more than mere "workplace violence" as well. It seems to have been a cut and dry hate crime.

    A racist is suspended from work for racist comments, so he comes back and violently butchers two women of the race he happens to dislike?

    Yea... Just change the race of the perpetrator to white, and the victims to black, and every Liberal news outlet in the country would be screaming about how this proves that "racism isn't dead" in America.

    pointless to insult and condemn an actual lunatic the saner he was the more deserving of punishment and being condemned he is

    But I would never make such claims. Nor have I seen any evidence of that. Nor does that address my post you quoted.

    It's not a yes or no question.

    We need to know a few things first:

    1. Was the woman red headed?

    2. Was she menopausal?

    3. Was she starting her monthly cycle?

    My mistake. I think I confused you for someone else.
