America, Happy Fourth, now wake up and smell the roses!
:rolleyes:
Quote
Authorities say the gunman who killed two people Thursday at Israel's El Al ticket counter at Los Angeles International Airport was an Egyptian who came to the United States in 1992.

Federal and local authorities say it is too early to determine whether terrorism is to blame for the attack.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

What I want to know is why they killed the gunman.  He was disarmed, and they had him pinned to the ground, and the security guard shot him twice in cold blood.   What the hell was he thinking?  What happened to Human Rights and a trial?  There was no reason why that man should have been shot.  They could at least have questioned him.

Well ever since Sept 11th anything that MIGHT be terrorist acts is being investigated. After what happened and constantly hearing "we're pulling something off on ....." can you blame our Gov. from checking EVERYthing out that might have the slightest link ? ?

As far as the Sec Guard shooting them in cold blood...you don't know exactly what happened ,..news reports rarely tell the exact situation on ANYthing.

I am extremely glad they just blasted him down; this is precisely the way to deal with these people, cornered or not. If they did indeed kill him in cold blood, that makes it all the better, as it will serve as an example to others.

Couldn't say it any better.
It's a fact.  Stupid people have stupid children.  If you are stupid, don't have sex.  If you insist on having sex.  Have sex with animals.  If you have sex with an animal.  Make sure the animal is smarter than you are.  Just encase of some biological fluke you and the animal have offspring, they won't be as stupid as you are.   One more thing.  Don't assume the animal is protected.  If the animal has a condom, or if female some interuterian device, insist they wear it.  Help stop this mindless mindlessness.  Keep your stupidty to yourself.  This message was brought to you by the Committee of Concerned Citizens that are Smarter than You are.

:wtf: :wtf: Uhh! They shot him dead as soon as they could get a shot off. He was armed and shot 3 people dead and injured others, they didnt let other ppl die just to arrest him.

You do realise he might have just been some poor guy trying to smuggle a gun through customs and have no terrorist or organised crime links whatsoever. He probably just paniced when he realised they'd twigged and tried to shoot his way out.

quite possible indeed, the fact that he's dead means they're going to have a fine time tracing things back to anyone.  capture and interrogation is the way to go.

Like i said ......alot of the "let's check to see if he's a terrorist" is being done on ANYthing even remotely possible.

But ...tried to smuggle in a gun...flipped out and shot ppl when caught. ...umm he basically walked up to the guard's and said "Hey would you mind to terribly shooting me perhaps ? Gee thanks"

The only downside to him being shot is lack of more information from him.

It's better he got shot there than caught and go through court then prison for years or life even. I REALLY don't like the idea of my tax many feeding those type of bastards. *sigh*

But as a whole we're too squimish and too into the whole "humane" thing to fry these jackasses anymore.

I mean hell...if someone's sent to kill someone else...life's not a wonderful little world for them,...they get caught and go to prison and spend time working out or actually taking school classes ...or more commonly just getting into the prison level crimes. And WE pay the tab.

But I'll get off this b4 I really go into it :D lol

:yes:

Which is why, if you've already disarmed him and pinned him to the ground, you don't shoot him.

Well so far the "be as humane as you can and always give the killer a chance to 'reform'" as done wonders for us hasn't it ?

I mean...out of every killer we imprison and "reform" ...only 99.9% of them kill someone within a year of release.

Ohhhh yea civility does wonders :D
