Call it ter­ror­ism

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - RE: Las Ve­gas shoot­ings

I am ab­so­lutely re­pulsed by the re­cent events in Las Ve­gas. The fact that the me­dia is yet to call this event ter­ror­ism is in­sane. No mat­ter the race, gen­der, eth­nic­ity, age or what­ever the sus­pect iden­ti­fies as - a hu­man who can take the lives and harm hun­dreds of in­no­cent ci­ti­zens is ter­ror­ism. The def­i­ni­tion of ter­ror­ism is “the un­law­ful use of vi­o­lence and intimidation, es­pe­cially against civil­ians.” A man stand­ing at a tall height and shoot­ing at peo­ple who are just try­ing to en­joy the con­cert they were at­tend­ing is ter­ror­ism.
