IS THE TITLE AN ACCURATE DESCRIPTION? YES OR NO
but I wait with bated breath expecting to hear it's a Islamic nutter gone shooter..
I have my personal beliefs, and intuitions lone wolf Islamic nutters are a real threat, and I believe it's a possibility that is the cause, however I also know it could be anyone or number of reasons and will admit to a biased in that regard but mainly because I see it as a threat to the western world, just as much if not more than our societal decay that also plays a part in random nutters and mass murders and criminal behaviors.

it just helps in the labelling of Americans as terrorists.
I think that is the gist of what is being said: they call everything "terror" because its the fear inducing catch phrase. Without the word "terror", only folks in NYC would even see this story as relevant, leaving the rest of America out of the gore porn fest.
Except the article title is : "Rush-hour terror" and not "Rush-hour terrorismterrorist" so... Calling something a terror is not the same as calling it terrorism or a terrorist.
Police records show there were 510 people hit by gunfire this year — a 9.3% increase from the 467 people hit by bullets through May 31 of last year.
