Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

Eh, it's about 60+ miles away. If it were a terror attack, Pershing Square in LA makes a whole lot more sense.

A terrorist attack on a disabled center doesn't make a lot of sense, unless to show no one is safe.

This will take some time to figure out, i am afraid.

That's not at all what anyone here was suggesting.

What I'm hearing from you is "no, no, don't you dare consider the possibilities that it was a terrorist because of the suspect's name, that's raaacist!"

I don't think anyone reasonable is trying to contest that this wan't terrorism. Mass casualties, specifically of disabled people, by three heavily armed gunmen? What else could it be?
What people are saying is: "don't call it Islamic terrorism, because of one of the name of one of the suspect's". And that is reasonable. We don't know the motivations of the suspects, and pounding the "IT'S THE MOZLEMS!" war drums is irresponsible until we know for sure.

Killing a suspect that's engaging the police with a firearm isn't a summary execution. I'm by no means a fan of the gun culture in the US or for police overzealousness or outright murder on occasion. But I'm pretty okay with them gunning down someone who is engaged in a fire fight with them....

Now that's just silly. If they could have been taken in alive then we could have learned so much more about why they killed 14 people. I don't mourn it but I'm certainly not happy about it.

Nobody is pounding those war drums, somebody just brought up the possibility.

Furthermore, I saw no outrage when people immediately accused the abortion clinic shooter of being a Christian. Wait, Muslims are a protected class, how could I forget.

Yeah. It is racist. Suspecting someone of a heinous crime like this because of their name is racist. And your claim that having an Arabic name increases the likelihood of being a terrorist breaks the rules of probability.
If I changed my name to something Arabic, does that suddenly increase my chances of being a terrorist? No.

A police officer has been hospitalized with a bullet wound. Images shown earlier a gun was visible next to the body of one of the dead suspects. I think its a reasonable assumption that the suspects opened fire.

Nobody tried to make the argument that the terrorist in Colorado is representative of all Christians, or pro-lifers. Nobody is trying to use him to justify attack Christianity as a whole. The same cannot be said about Islam, and Islamic terrorists. Or are you completely unaware of what's been saturating the news cycle as of late?

These suspects are not confirmed to be directly connected to the shooting at the IRC.
The number of people involved are not known, and motives are unknown.

To me, this reeks of the cartels, but political radicalism is another one I'm leaning towards.
