The fact they aren’t calling the first one terrorism, and the second one an attempted murderer off the bat is telling. It’s also telling that people aren’t more alarmed at the fact that if it is true that the shooter and the female student he critically wounded had a previous relationship, that we must talk about relationship and dating violence. But hell. Even if she never dated him, the fact that he seems to have gone after her is terrofying.
