    We spend billions to "protect" Americans from terrorists from other countries. But the spineless politicians do nothing to protect Americans from the gun toting terrorists that live among us.

    Have my eyes deceived me? Did you just call the black people that perpetrated this crime terrorists? Beware the wrath of Zaac.

    Race does not matter in matters such as this or Charleston. Politicians need to stop worrying so much about the next election and do what is right and protective of the American people.

    Your eyes aren't all that's deceived. He just called Dylann Roof and others a terrorists or is your comprehension that slow?

    Really? "Terrorists"?

    What should they do? Make *ALL* guns illegal?

    Their lives only matter in as much as they vote for the democrat candidate. But then in Chicago, they still matter after they die because they can still vote for the democrat candidate.

    The same level of attention was given to those as if it was a black on white crime.

    Unless you are a hypocrite you should give the same attention and outrage to this shooting in Detroit as you do to the shooting in Charleston. Or do black lives matter less when the perp is another black?

    Yes terrorists. Why call people from other country terrorists but why not call our own who commit the same type of crime terrorists?

    Definition, please. Not your own, but from a credible dictionary.

    Stop being foolish. You haven't asked for a definition of terrorist when anybody else has used the term. You know full well what a terrorist is and why Dylan Roof fits the definition.

    Anything to avoid giving your own opinion.

    OK, Terrorist:

    a person who terrorizes or frightens others.

    Do you agree?

    No.
    a person who uses terrorism in the pursuit of political aims.
    From French*terroriste, from Latin terror*(see*terror). The word was originally applied to supporters of the Jacobins in the French Revolution, who advocated repression and violence in pursuit of the principles of democracy and equality.

    1. a*person,*usually*a*member*of*a*group,*who uses*or*advocates*terrorism.

    2.
    a*person*who*terrorizes*or*frightens*others.

    The use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal; the systematic use of*terror*especially as a means of coercion.
    -----
    So who were the terrorists at this block party? What agenda were they using this act to draw attention to and further their cause?

    Yes, I have.

    This thread isn't about Dylan Roof. Keep your threads straight so you don't look foolish.

    I didn't say it was about Dylan Roof so stop yourself from looking foolish. And if someone else has already given you a definition, then apply it and stop looking foolish.

    You're the one that injected Dylan Roof in a thread about a shooting in Detroit (post #14). If you disagree that the Detroit shooting was an act of terrorism, then take it up with CTB, not me.

    Michael Brown must have qualified, then, considering the effect of his actions in regard to that tobacco shop owner and the cop who shot him.
