The Department of Homeland Security is calling a series of shootings targeting law enforcement in Pennsylvania a "terror attack."
Authorities said Ahmed Aminamin El-Mofty, 51, was shot and killed by police Friday in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, after he fired several times at law enforcement officers throughout the city.
The string of shootings began just steps from the state's Capitol building when El-Mofty fired several times at a Capitol Police officer and then, shot and injured at a state trooper. Later, he used two handguns to open fire at several officers who then returned fire and killed him, according to a statement from the Dauphin County district attorney's office.

Chain migration baby.
Ahmed Amin El-Mofty was a naturalized U.S. citizen who was admitted to the United States from Egypt on a family-based immigrant visa. El-Mofty was killed yesterday in a shootout after allegedly opening fire and targeting police at multiple locations in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The long chain of migration that led to the suspect's admission into the United States was initiated years ago by a distant relative of the suspect."

Awfully convenient this terrorism label, so anyone who commits crimes of violence could essentially be labeled a terrorist and jailed without rights period.
So Joe citizen loses it like in the movie falling down, instead of reporting truth they can just label it terrorism ,I guess people aren't interested in truth anyway. I dont like slippery slope like this.
the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
