    I am a member of Southern Poverty Law Center and very well informed , it is sad that this is not an isolated incident, I can only wonder the numbers that go unreported because hate crimes are committed by cowards that attack the innocent.

    The episode of Von Brunn is only one among several cases. A very interesting article in the Washington Post today shows the dilemma of US authorities – both the Department of Homeland Security as the FBI – on which the limits for the police intervention in cases of radical extremist groups when the speech is propagator of hatred and intolerance with for certain groups of society.

    The daily challenge of the authorities today is to find the balance between civil liberties of American citizens and the need to investigate activities that could lead to criminal conduct.

    The law of arms doesn't help at all. The first emendation is the most precious asset of the US and an inspiration to the world. But we all pay high for it, by the visa.

    I was amazed by your endless and reckless use of the term Lone Wolf to define an individual that commits a hate crime. Just think a little before you glorify these idiots. There are more of them out there that may find appealing to think of themselves as having a chance to become one. It would be better to just call them criminals or any term that does not glorify their role in a horrific act.

    I can't beleive that people still think their is a white gene. If one drop of Black blood means your Black then George Washington was probably the first Black President

    Oh please! This is just the latest "big thing" for the news media to jump on. An elderly man brings a rifle into a museum and fires a round and the news media would now have us all believe that he was the "point of the spear" for the White Supremist and all other radical groups. Give me a break! If the public will watch the "news" coverage over the next few days/weeks they will see what a charade the media has attempted to use to get the public's attention and to advance their Obama fascination.

    "Lone Wolf" my patutti – more like "Old Fool!" CNN and the rest of the "news" fools need to learn how to do real reporting, not this type of tripe. Talk about soundbite journalism!!

    These people are obviously using terroristic tactics to promote their cause... I believe there are laws.. I.E. Bush's... which could be used to detain these individuals indefinately... they need to be detained as risks to the national security... one major sweep in the country...
    maybe that will send a message we will not put up with this antiquated ideology...
