    The buckeye is the state tree of Ohio. Beautiful big shade tree with palmate leaves. The buckeye a non-edible nut in a prickly green outer husk, with a beautiful mahogany brown nut with a quarter sized creamy spot. We had about 6 of these trees in our yard growing up.

    The mascot for OSU is the buckeye. (Thankfully trees can be mascots without offending anyone!)

    And aren't the signs the same: loners who spend too much time online, have undiagnosed or untreated mental illnesses, don't socialize, stock up on weapons? And radicalized by ___fill in the blank___.

    Unfortunately that describes a lot of people.

    Not sure I agree.

    But both are equal in their anger and hate. And both do not hesitate to take out their rage on people --sometimes those they barely know.

    My question is : why is it that radical Islam produces killers more often --and whips people who may have been peaceful into some sort of frenzy ?

    fact But when the statistics are reviewed one is far more in danger of being killed , in a mass shooting, by others not Muslim, , between the ages 20-30!! It is just a statistical fact

    Yes, that description also fits domestic terrorists such as radicalized christian prolife terrorists who target abortion clinics.

    In this particular case, though, the radical ideology is radical islam. Same as in the St. Cloud mall stabbings, and the Cascade mall shootings. Among other numerous instances of domestic radical islamic terrorism.

    JMO but I would like to see a decrease in all shootings and incidents of mass violence like this and others. The racial ideology is only part of the picture - if that's all we focus on we won't get anywhere.

    I agree somewhat. (But wondered if you meant radical or racial?)

    The ideology is important-- it can't be ignored or minimized, or said to be irrelevant. It's a "chicken/ egg" debate. Which came first?

    1. The individual was primed for violence, and the radical ideology set the violence in motion?

    Or,

    2. The radical ideology promotes and encourages individual violence that wouldn't occur without the radical ideology?

    The end result is the same-- paroxysmal violence. And it's a particularly thorny issue in this country when a political and radical ideology is also posing as a religion.

    But these paroxysms of violence are not at all random. Even mass violence as a result of mental illness is predictable, such as Adam Lanza and James Holmes.

    We CAN be more alert and observant of radicalization as a force that produces violence, and we must make some hard decisions about how to intervene before masses of people are killed. It's essential that we do this. We know who the risky people are, and what the risky ideologies are. We have to be brave enough as a nation to confront this evil and put a stop to it, IMO. It won't be easy, and it will upset some people, but we have to stop pretending it's something else. Our lives and the very existence of our country depend on getting this right. We have to be on the right side of history on this one, just as we were in WWI and WWII.

    All true, the facts are tho, that one is far more likely to be killed by someone other than the Muslim faith..................

    Well, I'm sorry Cariis, but I can't agree with you on that one. There's not a shred of evidence, IMO, that this was anything but radical jihadism.

    I think this is a case of a disaffected young muslim refugee that succumbed to radicalization, and acted out so as to achieve "relevance" in his journey to his idea of heaven, and attempted to take out as many infidels in a bloody manner as he could in the process.

    The perp was thought to be a shooter. Or are people saying that he is saying the officer did gun violence? That would be reprehensible to say that is what Kaine was saying.

    Assuming the FB post is correct he was politically motivated, in particular by the ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya in Burma. What's the confusion here?

    Those examples are not accurate. The Cascade mall shooting was done by a very mentally ill person who had many mental health interventions. The St. Cloud one had issues as well. I forget what they were.

    Just cuz someone is a Christian does not make them a Christian killer. I would say all if not most mass killers are acting out of rage because of menatl health issues. Things such as abuse

    No link, just the news on Fox, but there is video of the perpetrator entering the campus and starting the attack by driving through the crowd of students, then exiting the SUV and starting to stab whoever was nearby. I think the professor was just unlucky enough to be a victim who was close by. You don't think the facebook posting right before the attack is relevant?
