I hope Steve Scalise pulls through from this. People really need to cool off.
I guess a question to ask of the media, though, is how the term ‘terrorism’ has reserved caveats for itself. We suddenly need to find out all the facts before the word is thrown out there when the term is clearly defined in most dictionaries and understood by most cultures. I wonder how today’s reporting of this incident would have gone had the ‘gunman’s’ name been Mohammed. I wonder if the term ‘gunman’s would even have been used?!
I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:
