You hear from conservatives everyday that the Islam is a problem in America and must be stopped. Yet cops have killed more people in the past five years than Radical Islamist's, so have the mentally ill, home grown terrorists, people with guns, disease...etc.

Why are they not calling for guns, vehicles, knives to be heavily regulated by refusing access to some people or asking for better health care for the mentally ill and other assortment of illness's?

There is no doubt that radical Islam is an issue but why are they consistent with their angry outbursts? They are quiet when another unarmed black person is shot by a cop, yet no outcry that the police should have a better vetting process. A crazy person goes on a shooting spree, yet no outcry that guns should be regulated better to keep guns out of these peoples hands or that people should have better access to mental health care. When a someone is killed by a vehicle, no outcry about vehicle safety. When a home grown terrorist kills someone, no outcry that groups these people are known to have been linked to, should be placed under surveillance. Heart disease takes a lot of lives, no outcry that the food industry be heavily regulated.

Why are they selective about who and what should be vetted, regulated or kept under surveillance?

Is it more than just a Islamic issue, is it racism/bigotry, why are they so selective on their outrage?

take a look at the MSM, that may answer a lot of your questions.

They pick and choose what topics to bring up and which ones to leave out, or just outright throw away.

What?

Get off ATS and go read some real news. You clearly aren't paying attention.

You're mixing apples and oranges.

Your meaning/question is clear but more apt to produce a fruit salad than a clear answer.

peace

How-

All your ideas seem at face value to be a great idea.

But how are you going to get inside someone's head and know they are going to drive their car into a crowd and kill6 people?

How are you going to know that someone is going to take a gallon can of paint and beat someone to death with it?

Knives-screwdrivers-crowbars-ball bats-chemicals-cars-trucks-bricks-gas for gas bombs-propane-machetes-box cutters-rifles-hand guns-shotguns-rope-cable-off the top of my head have been used to kill.

What is your ideas on these

we said, "there is too much gang violence, to many gang murders!"

and someone listened.
www.theblaze.com...

An operation by Immigrations and Customs Enforcement resulted in the largest arrest of suspected gang members by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) to date, including some illegal immigrants who had previously been recipients of “Dream Act” deportation deferrals. The ICE social media account lauded the anti-gang results Thursday with a link to a statement about the operation.


If you want some good news, you kind of have to look for it, since it rarely sells papers.
