How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Was FBI Director Right When He Said Charleston Shooting Not Terrorism?

FBI Director James Comey came under fire after he said the mass shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, was not terrorism.

Dylann Roof, who is white, has been charged in the killings and has a history of racism. He even posted a manifesto espousing his hatred for black people.

“Terrorism is an act of violence done … in order to try to influence a public body or citizenry so it’s more of a political act and again based on what I know so more I don’t see it as a political act,” Comey said during a press conference in Baltimore on Sunday.

According to the FBI, “domestic terrorism” is committed if it appears the person “intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.”

In Detroit, the police chief called the culprits of a mass shooting over the weekend “urban terrorists.”
