Law currently is the problem - It can be used to justify terrorist acts - not to say its giving terrorists a 'a get out of jail free' =card -
Take that shooter some years ago in Colorado who carefully plans and executes a mass murder at a movie theater and
"On July 20, 2012, a mass shooting occurred inside a Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, during a midnight screening of the film The Dark
Knight Rises. Dressed in tactical clothing, James Eagan Holmes set off tear gas grenades and shot into the audience with multiple firearms. Twelve
people were killed and seventy others were injured, 58 of them from gunfire. At the time, the attack had the largest number of casualties in one
shooting in modern U.S. history, until the Orlando nightclub shooting in 2016 and the Las Vegas shooting in 2017. It was the deadliest shooting in
Colorado since the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. Holmes was arrested in his car outside the cinema minutes later. He had earlier rigged his
apartment with homemade explosives and incendiary devices, which were defused by the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office Bomb Squad a day after the
Crazy right? - But there are a lot of crazy people in the World - Most would not go out and kill to satisfy the demons
that drive them.
In the case of the Lss Vegas shooting just last year, I was amazed when the sheriff, a long time law enforcement
officer, got on the local news and kept saying he could not understand why? - I once read a book by an organized

You could say the same thing for most terrorists - And that's the problem
Essentially what I'm saying is if society continues to give insanity as an excuse we are catering to more, and can
expect more, terrorist acts.
We already have laws against 'hate crimes' - Maybe this is not enough
When someone gets on the internet and starts blogging hatred in such a way that it indicates action should
be taken against a person, group of people, political ideology, race, religion, etc.
Maybe it is time to distinguish between 'freedon of speach' and malicious hatred with intent to harm and/or
endanger Human life?
