With a number of terrorists, they have some idea. The problem is these pesky things called "rights".


There's not much they can do with the new kind of suicidal terrorist that attack people with knives or hammers.

You may think you are protected if you carry a gun but there's not much you can do if three people stab you from three different directions without warning.

I am relishing the prospect of this thread being paralleled with the next one on Palestinian terrorism.

I'm not talking about gun rights. I am talking about rights in general. It's very hard to lock someone up who has not committed a crime. As it should be.

Let's start with "....tired of living in fear in their own country ".


The people attacked and murdered in London a short time ago were living in their own country and presumably they are now living in fear.

The assumption in Josie's post is, crudely,  white British Christian people (it's "their own" country)  are living in fear and so understandably lash out at someone.

This doesn't apply to the Muslims because they don't really belong, like any other pesky group. 


Josie is a firm believer in the "occidental" countries belonging to the white Christians. In her mind, other people should be considered at best second class citizens that should feel lucky to be tolerated there.

I've already said that.

There's no practical way to protect society against nut-jobs. You don't know that they are nut-jobs before they act and once they do, it's too late to do anything to prevent it. You could put everyone under surveillance like in a big brother type of society but the cure would be far worse than the disease.

"Revenge"  by the way is the wrong word.

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/revenge


"Reprisal"  is more accurate

I am not sure either applies.

What you said is slightly different. You are talking about mass surveillance while I am talking about a more limited but more significant abuse of rights.

It's the moronic version of justice:

"someone claiming the status" Muslim" committed an indiscriminate attack on people with whom I vaguely identify.  I will now drive a vehicle in to a group of people with the status "Muslim", even though the ones I hurt are not in any way connected with the original attack".


It's wicked and stupid in equal measure.


If the prick who did it could do 3 syllable words, "reprisal"  would fit snugly.
