Vegas cop attacks: Label domestic terrorists

Why do people in this country get to call Muslims terrorists, and those same Americans get to call those who oppose our own government “patriots?” ["Vegas police killer decried government on YouTube," Nation & World, June 9]

I am calling a time out on this.

It is way past time for newspapers to actively call such armed radicals what they really are: domestic terrorists. How many more Timothy McVeighs do we need in this country? It is time for the government to stand up to them — the petty thieves who graze on federal lands and refuse to pay, while threatening law officers, to the whack jobs who killed two policemen at lunch.

I want my country back. No, I am not talking about from lawful Muslims and others who come to our country and become great citizens. I am talking about born-in-the-U.S. whack jobs, who take all the money that they can get from this country, and then bite the hand that feeds them.

Alan Zelt, Kenmore
