  • A hate crime and a terrorist act

    Boston Globe - 06/13/2016

    We have witnessed other recent mass killings based on hate, including Dylann Roof’s slaying of nine black churchgoers in Charleston and Wade Michael Page’s shooting of six people at a Sikh temple in Oak Creek, Wisc. In such killings, the killer seeks to send a message to an international audience. His purpose is to rid the world of evil, as he sees it, by eliminating the enemy from the face of the earth. He sees his victims as villains or sub-humans or children of the devil. The larger the killer’s body count, the more likely it is that his terrorist act will receive publicity around the world.
