Well if the police had arrested this guy before he went out killing people, they would still be alive!!
Yes they knew about his radical views and also knew about his visits to Afghanistan and if they were watching him like they said they were, they should have known he had an Arsenal of weapons!!
I agree that more people need to be arrested before the crime.... just look at that Anders Brevic guy too.... he was also on a watch list!!
Many have been on watchlists but not arrested before the act!!
