Jack Crawford had a twitter exchange with a fan over whether or not this was terrorism. I believe it was. Some people are calling it a hate crime. It really doesn’t matter when it comes to murder as a whole, but the media does portray one act and another act differently when they are alike. Killing and violence should have one name not several to confuse the public. Call it what you want, but this is an act of terrorism.
Terrorism – the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.
Hate Crime – any of various crimes (as assault or defacement of property) when motivated by hostility to the victim as a member of a group (as one based on color, creed, gender, or sexual orientation)
*remember not everyone was an officer, and not everyone was white.
