Sikh Temple shooting being treated as domestic terrorism, Oak Creek police say
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel ^ | August 5, 2012 | Staff Writers

Posted on 08/05/2012 3:29:09 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

The shooting at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek about 10:15 a.m. Sunday that left at least seven people dead, including the shooter, and three people injured is being treated as a domestic terrorist incident, Oak Creek Police Chief John Edwards said.

Oak Creek police officers who responded to a 911 call about the shooting were helping a victim when the shooter ambushed one of the officers, shooting the officer multiple times.

A second Oak Creek officer returned fire, killing the shooter, Edwards said.

The wounded officer, described as at least a 20-year veteran of the department, was in surgery Sunday afternoon and was expected to survive, Edwards said during a 4 p.m. news conference.

Of those killed, four of the dead were inside the temple at 7512 S. Howell Ave. and three of the dead, including the shooter, were outside the temple.

I wonder how long it will be before the shooter is identified as a tea party member?

The description of the incident as "domestic terrorism" will depend on if the shooter has a religion, and what the religion is.

Ft. Hood set the precedent. No Muslim who commits mass murder in America can be referred to as a terrorist.

The "domestic terrorism" designation could very well change.

Brian Ross is on paid vacation, but I expect officials will roll back the domestic terrorism claim. Remember Ft. Hood.

I am very curious to find out whether this shooter is one of those morons who doesn’t understand the great difference between peaceful Sikhs and murderous muslims. It’s somehow more galling to see a horrific event caused by painful stupidity.

Governor Walker announced the FBI is leading the investigation. This did not happen with the Aurora shooting, so someone knows something.

We know where this is headed. Just look at the language of hyphens for a hint: “hate-crime”, “domestic-terrorist”, “domestic-violence”, “African-American”, “contingency-war” (or war of contingency, as opposed to war on terror)...

Frankly, what I think, is that the Batman theater attack is a mini 911 manipulation. Someone out there is out to enjoy blocking the nation’s businesses, and who else is to benefit from such politics, eh? Or better yet, who else is so hateful that it is part of their agenda? Yeah, “shut the F up, You did not build that, it takes MY village”.

Or they already knew the Aurora shooter was a leftist loony so there was no need to investigate but to start doing the covering up right away of “mental illness” and not liberalism... (not like it is a “domestic-violence” issue within democrate circles).

“Domestic Terrorist” is Lib Code for us bitter clingers...

Having said that, it seems to me that the Media has been remarkably circumspect in their reporting - I haven’t seen any reports mentioning “AK47”, or “High Powered Military Style Assault Rifle”, or even “High Capacity Automatic (sic) Pistol”....

The shooter was shot and killed by the second police officer on the scene. The first officer was ambushed and shot several times and is currently undergoing surgery.

Considering the culpability of Obama and Holder in Fast & Furious, it wouldn’t surprise me if Aurora and Milwaukee both are just steps in a massive Reichstag fire type event.

This is going to be terrible if it turns out this is some poor veteran suffering PTSD who wasn’t smart enough to know that a Sikh is in no way a Muslim.

Not that shooting up a mosque would have been any better, but that would just be terrible.

Either the Lame Stream Media has learned a lesson from the Colorado tragedy(maybe) or the fact that they've haven't ''linked'' the shooter to the Tea Party might indicate it was a worthless Saracen bastard.

“Domestic Terrorism”...
without being there or inside the heads of the officials who have deemed it so it makes me wonder...

A “terrorist” does not work alone. If he does, it does him no good to get killed. Therefore, he was put up to it (like the suicide bomber) to be a small part in a larger “terror” scheme.

What do they “know” that makes them treat this as “domestic terrorism” so quickly?

The fact that it is called terrorism means it wasn’t a muzzie. If it was a ma muzzie it would be a ‘personal’ or ‘neighborhood dispute’ or maybe ‘workplace violence’.

They must have a reason and I am sure somebody must have leaked to the news people by now what it is --My guess was a nut job imitating Colorado and in this case thinking they were muslims

Calling it terrorism and calling in the FBI means it wasn't a left winger or muslim

If the person's black or gay it's not terrorism either - those groups are 'protected'. I pray it's not a conservative - the press would love to rip us to shreds... Especially the New York Times...

They just stated on Fox that police have gone to a home in Cudahy and are not allowing reporters near. I imagine there will be updates sometime this evening.
It is just so sad.
