    I am not talking about every group we dont like. But these groups actively breed hate within our society. People who follow them are basically encouraged to act against some Americans. How is that any different than Al Queda?

    On June 4, a gunman in Moncton, New Brunswick, killed three Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers and injured two others. Police launched a massive manhunt, eventually capturing their suspect. But after the shooting, the Canadian news outlet Sun News made a decision that might seem surprising. They chose not to broadcast details about the Moncton shooter — not his name, not his photo, no personal details.

    There is research from a variety of fields on how media coverage can potentially lead to an increase in violent acts. A study of mass murders in Australia, New Zealand and Britain concluded that shootings happen in clusters, not as individual instances. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has published guidelines on how the media should report on suicides. And sociologist Zeynep Tufekci wrote in The Atlantic that the "tornado of media coverage" may be creating a "vicious cycle of copycat effects similar to those found in teen and other suicides."
    Many shooters seem to have a common interest in previous deadly gun attacks. The Sandy Hook shooter had a reported fascination with mass murders, particularly the Columbine school shooting. The two Columbine shooters said they wanted a movie to be made about them one day. And the Santa Barbara shooter posted numerous videos on YouTube, giving his violent and misogynistic missives the potential for a worldwide audience.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's interesting because a few days ago I made a conscious decision to stop using his name as well. Now I just call him "the killer" and other assorted adjectives. But I am curious what motivates someone like that to see if there are patterns and similarties with the other mass killers and the need for attention does seem to be one of those similarties. The more we learn to recognize some of the symptoms the easier it might be to prevent some of these horrendous crimes from happening in the future.

    since there was no multiple choice i answered "it was a terrorist act" because by definition it is

    but it was also a nut job and it was also a hate crime

    Plutonium engaged in a terrorist act when he set up this poll because he did not allow us to vote for all three.
