The brutal murder of Drummer Lee Rigby of The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, on Wednesday outside Woolwich Barracks in London, was shocking and sickening. One of the terrorists was carrying a gun and was shot by police at the scene. Shot and wounded, not shot and killed.
Meanwhile, on the same day, a Chechen immigrant, friend of one of the Boston marathon bombers who was, as far as we know, innocent of any crime, was shot dead at his home in Florida by an FBI agent. The agent admitted he did not know if the man was armed.
