But there was no mention of domestic terrorism. The Wisconsin shooting was labeled domestic terrorism right from the beginning. By way of comparison, it took the government and media forever to label the Fort Hood shooting as an act of terrorism (which it was). I don't know what all that means ... I just find it odd.
That's how I took your comment there as well. This was labeled domestic terrorism even before a description of the shooter came out, let alone a name and the fact that he had tattoos. I just thought that was odd as well.
