Nor do I. They are a soft target and virtually unprotected. Our security policies in this country lead servicepeople to get killed.

Political correctness trumps all. Those marines shouldn't have been there. It was their fault.

White guy who kills nine and waves a confederate flag is an idiot, someone with the name Mohammad kills four and is a terrorist and we have to wake up. Got it!

You really have to explain to me what's the ****ing difference between them, because I can't find it!?

I expect we will find out that the motive is different, don't you think so?

Only Muslims can be terrorists. White supremacists who kill people are just misguided patriots.

Does a different motive make any difference?

Clearly it does. Knowing the motive provides important information for investigation. Understanding motive is one of the key functions of the police and FBI. Please don't tell me you don't understand.
