    Nope, not at all.

    But like another poster said, it's one of those things that gives capital punishment its' shine when you ignore the wasteful economics of it.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    I like that. And the people who do it are, of course, pissoffists.

    Maybe we should target the social problems that cause "terrorism" instead of trying to make "terrorists" out of US citizens.
    He turned into a terroist the instant he attacked a defenseless Woman. He was also a Coward.

    And how do we stop African Americans from marginalizing themselves ?

    And " Good educations " aren't offered or granted or even payed for. Their EARNED through hard work by the students.

    Re: Do you think the beheading of the woman in Okl was work place violence or terrori

    But anyways I'll post what I posted on the last thread about this:
    There's nothing linking the Oklahoma beheading to any groups, terrorist or otherwise

    An Oklahoma prosecutor announced Thursday that he plans to seek the death penalty for Alton Nolen, a man accused of beheading one women and attempting to murder a second. Nolen is a recent convert to Islam and his Facebook posts indicate sympathies for terrorists such as Osama bin Laden. That, and the similarity of his alleged crime to beheadings carried out by ISIS members, has led to speculation in conservative media that Nolen was a "jihadist."While it's possible that Nolen's anti-American views were a motivating factor in his alleged crimes, prosecutors so far have said they think Nolen was motivated more by race than religion. The immediate trigger seems to have been anger over losing his job his extreme, violent reaction could be a sign of mental illness.

    More important, no evidence has emerged of links between Nolen and ISIS or any other militant group. Whether or not Nolen was trying to ape the ISIS beheadings, it appears that he acted alone.

    When it comes to terrorism the left in this country is in denial and if t hey don't wake up it could mean this country's dowfall. Appeasing radical Islam will not work.

    And there is zero evidence -- ZERO -- that this guy had any ties to any terrorist organizations. Read the link that TDS just posted.

    Not living in perpetual pants-crapping fear of the evil Muslims is not being "in denial."

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.
    First off a hate crime is going to target someone due to race, sexual orientation, or gender as a primary. Nolan attacked the lady who got him SUSPENDED- sure he had hate and didn't like white folks but he attacked the person he saw as responsible for his getting canned. He was 'fired' in one building, drove to another and attacked the lady (vic #2) who complained about him.

    Now an Okie hate crime was a pair of good ol' boys targeting blacks at RANDOM for something other guys did to a relative in Tulsa a bit ago. Watts and England, 2012

    I live in Oklahoma, you don't need to flip the script to prove racism isn't dead, just listen to a buncha good ol' boys talking when no black guys are around.... the N word flies like it's 1964...

    Alive and well my young east coast friend....
