    I see it as a really good argument for capital punishment.

    Call it whatever you want, argue about it all day if that's what floats your boat, it changes nothing for the victim, she's still dead.

    She was a caring and compassionate person and a loving wife, mother and grandmother.

    She went to work one day and didn't come home. She was killed violently at her workplace by a lunatic and i'm sure she was terrified.

    Homicide. The location doesn't really matter. As for it being related to terrorism, I have no freaking clue. Has the perpetrator expressed any political or social agenda as the reason for his actions?

    I can tell you straight up that it sure as Hell isn't "workplace violence," in any case.

    And the cowardly douchebag lunatic murdering son of a bitch deserves the strongest possible condemnation and punishment we can level on him regardless of his mental state or motives. I'd guess that's something most all of us could agree on.

    You got that right. It is not so much the being dead as the dying.

    The object of the tactic of terrorism is to create terror within some targeted political demographic and coerce some desired change in behavior as a result of that fear.
    How does this case even remotely fit that criteria?

    OJ beheaded his ex-wife.
    He wasn't a terrorist either.

    True. I don't feel terrified, I feel pissed off and I also feel a strong desire to show that coward what terror really means.

    The facts sure as hell don't support lone wolf terrorist at all. Guy gets canned and comes back to attack his co-workers. Being fired was the trigger, not a call to Jihad. He attacked his coworkers, not random people on the street. He made no plan to use bombs or other devices, just an impulse to get even for being fired.

    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...
