Being Catholic and adamantly pro-life, I have some difficulty tussling over the moral issues in regards to capital punishment.

But there are times when I wish such perps it didn't end up listed "taken into custody" but rather "exterminated".

These people should just shoot themselves in the head.;instead of all this collateral damage-shooting these others. Maybe he's to much of a chicken to shoot himself and hopefully when the police arrive they'll shoot him.

I'll keep asking this question. Why is this not terrorism?

@Hi_estComnDenomn My only guess would be is because they classified it now as a domestic situation. I guess you can take out people with an Abrams tank as long as you know them its not terrorism?
