Murder or Terrorism in Utrecht? Both
Last updated by
Murder is murder.
Terrorism is terrorism.
Is one worse than the other?
People trying to make out that the awful murders this morning are not as bad as a terrorist atrocity miss the point entirely.
If, as it may turn out, this was part of a family feud and the murdered people were trying to save someone they didn’t know, does this demean their actions as they werent fighting off a terrorist?
Of course not. Their bravery stands head and shoulders above anything. That they are heroes goes without saying.
In this age, multiple shootings are often first thought of as a terrorist act. People do jump to conclusions as the media did this morning as well as the dutch anti terrorist force.
But isn’t murder terrorism by any other name?
