    Ok, so yelling "get out of my country" right before he shoots 3 people isn't an act of terrorism?

    I would imagine the victims were terrified. And the definition of terrorism is?

    Terrorism is, in its broadest sense, the use of intentionally indiscriminate violence as a means to create terror or fear, in order to achieve a political, religious, or ideological aim.

    Even if it's not terrorism it's certainly an ethnically or racially motivated hate crime. Perhaps he would not have shot them if he hadn't been drunk, but that doesn't change the motivation.

    BS. I have been drunk more than a few times. I never lost my sense of right and wrong when drunk.

    Have you ever had 2 drinks and then driven home?

    The only reason this is not up for debate is because he is not brown.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    When white folks do it, it's called a hate crime. When muslims do it, it's called terrorism.

    great being drunk is an excuse, I should remember that, it may come in handy someday
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    5 pages of this thread, and nobody pointed out that this guy was so effing stupid he couldn't tell the difference between Iranians and Indians. (Other stories have stated that when he got to Applebees and confessed to the bartender, he said he shot a couple of Iranians)

    And, I tend to agree with NZ here- take alcohol out of the mix and I wonder if he would have done it. News stories say he was going through a rough time and was hitting the bottle hard. Without the booze maybe he would have just stayed home and made racist comments on Facebook.
    But we'll never know.

    Nobody here said it was an excuse.

    Because bar fights and shootings never happen whenever alcohol is involved right?

    Never had a DUI. But I have been guilty of strange dancing.
