Violent, maladjusted, radicalized and non-patriotic individuals pose a continuing threat to the security and serenity of civil society.
From Canada, to France, to Belgium, to Great Britain, to the United States and beyond, callous cowardly acts by maladjusted perpetrators serve as reminders of the often stark grim reality of the modern era.
While some potential perpetrators could be identified early, it remains almost impossible to predict and to prevent many of these violent attacks by 'lone wolves'.
However, as part of ongoing efforts to safeguard against these attacks upon civility, it becomes imperative that fair justice be adjudged to all, their families and their loved ones, and that there is no undue scrutiny exacted against individuals that would force them to become radicalized.
Moreover, avenues to community involvement into governance must be sustained and strengthened to ensure redress of grievances and the lauding of patriotism. And above all, the full weight of the law must be brought to wrought upon all individuals found actively planning or carrying out any acts of terror upon the societies that have given them haven and stability.
It is with a heavy heart and with sincere condolences to the loved ones of four unarmed Marines killed yesterday in Chattanooga, Tennessee, that we must face this 17th day of July, 2015 - a painful reality of the stark violence confronting civil society from the maladjusted within.
