According to USA Today: “French police hunt door to door for terror suspects”
Why are they considered terror suspects? Why not just criminals?
The nation raised its terror alert system to the maximum…
I believe it to be true that there have been other murders and even shootings in France – maybe mass shootings. In fact, here is a list of French mass murderers; here is another of French spree killers. I didn’t check them all, but in the ones I checked there was no mention of “terror suspects.”
Three men reportedly killed twelve people in an office. A horrendous event. I know the details, but feel them unimportant to my question: why are they considered anything other than criminals?
France's Interior Ministry said 88,000 people have been deployed…
Eighty-eight thousand people deployed to find two people? I didn’t see mention of 88,000 people deployed in any of the previous French mass killings.
…in the massive manhunt for Said Kouachi, 34, and Cherif Kouachi, 32, who are suspected of killing 12 people in the assault on the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
I guess we know why they are considered terrorists. Yes, that's right: it is because they are both in their early 30s.
There is more:
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will travel to Paris this weekend to attend a Sunday International Ministerial meeting. The meeting, called in response to the attacks, is being convened by the French Minister of Interior. The meetings will include discussions on addressing terrorist threats, foreign fighters and countering violent extremism.
Eric Holder? To capture two criminals? He doesn’t have enough to do with police killing unarmed civilians in the US?
A horrendous crime took place – twelve people were killed. Isn’t it enough to find those who did it? Isn't it enough to mourn the victims? Does such drama need to be attached?
Then again, France has a good teacher.
