Terrorism and Murder in Canada

When I heard about the killing of the guard at the Ottawa War Memorial, I thought of the 2013 murder of Lee Rigby in England.  This is not "workplace violence", and it's not about a video. It's a deliberate, targeted terrorist attack. The killing of Cpl. Cirillo is as if someone killed a guard at our Tomb of the Unknown Solider. This was an act of savagery at a sacred place and should not be downplayed or forgiven.

(If political correctness is the first response by police to a terrorist attack, we're in very big trouble indeed: In wake of Ottawa shootings, Police Chiefs send letters to Muslim leaders inviting Muslims to contact them if they fear “backlash”)  Maybe they can come up with pre-printed letters like this for all countries to use whenever they're attacked!)

People do make mistakes and I think they should be punished. But they should be forgiven and given the opportunity for a second chance. We are human beings. See the link below for more info.
