Radicalized, ISIS inspired, disgruntled, prejudiced against, it doesn’t matter and who cares. Police did just cause by taking down a person with intent/success to harm others.
We are no longer in a realm where we can sit down and psycho analyze whether a person who is demonstrating intent to harm others is going to follow thru or not.
The person is dead and I have no desire to listen to endless discussions as to the conditions that lead that person to do what he did. Do I sound cold and un-empathetic? Perhaps, all I know is that I stand behind the police officer’s actions as just and quick acting appropriate to the situation.
I watch daily in my own neighborhood gunshots being fired out of vehicles, gangs of men beating up and robbing women, drugs being sold, break-ins and vandalism. Our real issue is what is going on in our own neighborhoods. This person’s actions at OSU is no different than the actions I just mentioned as going on in our own neighborhoods. Both involve intent to harm others or property with no regard as to that harm.
