    I'm sure there are some varying opinions on the matter, but I personally believe beheading women is wrong.

    so do we in general cover up discussion of motive or not? do criminals have a right to their own story, and do we have a right to say that we can simply ignore it? what about when we use our estimation of motive to make predictions about other potentially connected or even simply similar criminal intentions? what about when we want to know what really happened (even if our mainstream media-space is totally unequipped to lead us on this process)?

    i get that in complex, organized crime, the game is much more complicated, more skilled, and more secretive. so there are some practical aspects simply in terms of trying to get results that kind of take the basic civil agreements out of it.

    i also do think it makes sense to be careful for how you portray an individual who declares war or commits to a black market vs a group who does so. but i don't really know why. maybe simply by virtue of being a group and acting in a coordinated way, it exhibits greater reality gravity, even if the balance and context of it is only better empirically (more recruits!) and not necessarily in terms of any actual awareness of what is happening. maybe it's just more of an affront to our sense of the social contract, felt against the weight of social aggregation. maybe it's just a different kind of threat (to us individually rather than socially, organizationally, infrastructurally, and so it's best for us to just put it out of our minds).

    I think the role said religion played in instigating the illegal action is important.

    These are all from the last day or so. Which means that not only did mainstream outlets cover it, they're keeping us posted on it.

    Anyways, thank you for your presenting a diverging perspective in a polite way.

    a year or so we had a guy around an hour from here who stabbed his brother to death for eating the last of their leftover turkey from thanksgiving... should we monitor leftovers as well?

    a murder is a murder... that's it. there are all kinds of crazies out there who kill people because of their strange beliefs... just because one is the current enemy doesn't mean that it's special

    “These [Facebook] images and messages appear to support Islamic radicals”

    “He talks about Judgement Day in the Qur’an

    It appears he was not directly associated with any terror cell but from what I've read. However, there were plenty of people on his Facebook page that "liked" his pro Islamic extremism messages and images/videos.

    When you believe that killing the Infidel is a holy action, it doesn't really matter if you're associated with a terror network. This asshole has plenty of Muslim freaks supporting him and his "righteous" act.

    Yeah, he just got fired and the woman he beheaded was a co-worker so whatever was going on there was certainly a big factor, but to suggest that his radical Islamic beliefs weren’t also a big factor in this is ludicrous.
