    A terrible tragedy.

    I wish I knew an answer to 'what can we do?'

    I cannot for the life of me understand why anyone would want to shoot up Sikhs!!! Why, why, why.....in my experience albeit limited they are a gentle, dignified and devout folk.....who do not do anything at all that could offend anyone!!:tear:

    Sadly because there are far right-wing fascist nuts who hate just about everyone and some of them go off the deep end.

    I'm wondering if the wacko that shot them was so dense and stupid that he thought they were Muslims.

    The Tea Party is probably too 'liberal' for him. I guess you have not read about him.

    Their problem is many Americans see their turbans and beards and think they are Muslims.

    Far Warning

    I am going to closely moderate this thread. So, watch your ad hominum remarks. The shooter is dead so we are going to be dealing with a lot of speculation. Let's try to be responsible with it.

    Yet Another Precinct Heard from

    In this case CNN:

    Military, Music Marked Temple Suspect's Path to Wisconsin

    I think CNN is being way to objective. It's not like there is any other person thought to be the shooter. It's kinda like a newspaper in 1865 calling John Wilkes Booth a suspect in the assassination of President Lincoln.

    An insulting statement that's as intelligent as speculating that he was trying to jump-start another Communist Revolution.

    I hate the fact that they brought the military into it. Just because he was in the military for a short time, and that was 14 years ago. He was forced out. But there are only two reasons I can think of to bring it up: 1. To show a history of misconduct, or 2. to tey and get people to subconsciously link the military with this event.

    I hate when someone who has been out of the military for several years still has his military history brought up in a case like this. The military had nothing to do with what happened.

    Some facts on his time in the Army: it was in peacetime between the two Gulf Wars. so, he never got shot at. and he never went overseas

    I enjoyed psychiatrist Dr. Ablow's article about our broken mental health system in the US.

    "Did mental illness fuel Wisconsin massacre -- or was it terrorism?"
