This is not about terrorism, this is about mental illness. The shooter here, Kori Ali Muhammad, has been in and out of mental institutions for the past decade, released once he’s stabilized so he’s pretty much sane, then he gets back out on the streets, goes off his meds, and goes crazy again.
Both loony lefties and loony righties said that this man had the right to not take his meds after being released from a mental institution, the lefties because they consider mental illness to be merely “mentally different” and we shouldn’t take away their right to choose to be “different”, the righties because they consider mental illness to be a “moral failing” and that people have a right to choose such a thing.
The reality is that this man’s mental illness made these choices for him, not he himself. His brain was literally not working right and was incapable of making sane rational choices regardless of how much he desired to do so. And now four people are dead. Because some abstract “right to be crazy” is more important than both the welfare of the mentally ill, and the welfare of those around them.
