“The FBI is working closely with the Oak Creek Police Department and other local and federal agencies to investigate today’s shooting incident. This remains an active investigation in its early stages. While the FBI is investigating whether this matter might be an act of domestic terrorism, no motive has been determined at this time. We know our community has been deeply impacted by this incident, and our thoughts are with those affected and particularly with the officer who was wounded in the line of duty to protect others.”
— FBI Milwaukee Special Agent in Charge Teresa Carlson
Early unconfirmed reports are stating that the lone gunman, who was taken down by Wisconsin police, had tattoo markings that made the police decide that this case was an act of domestic terrorism.
I’m glad that at least one network news channel is making a clear delineation between Sikhs and Muslims, members of two different faiths.
I fear that Fox News and conservative media will continue to amplify the false fear of Muslims and Islam, and that they will link Sikhs with terrorism, even though an adherent of Sikhism has 100% NEVER committed an act of domestic terrorism against humanity. I also fear that they will gloss over the white supremacy link in the case.
In other words, more of the same.
