    I understand anger and knee jerk reactions, and fear. But thoughts, do not require action.

    And how would he know who "all" the Muslims are? They don't all look alike or dress alike. How many Middle Eastern Christians, and Sikhs would get caught up in that unholy dragnet?

    Not to mention, the assumption that these people are all guilty. Guilty of what? Being different?

    We have a justice system in this country for a reason. It might not be perfect, but most of the time, it's at least slightly better than mob actions.

    There is always the danger, that would-be-Monster-Slayers, become what they hate and fear the most, other monsters.

    Although I wish that the terrorist types would figure out, that each subsequent attack in any given Western country will lead to more citizens leaning towards aspects of conservatism, isolationism, jingoism, militarism, and belligerence.

    Don't make this a self fulfilling prophecy.

    The more rights we loose, then we have even less control/power to reign in an increasingly militarized government.
