The intelligence gathering is fine. It's this kind of thing that's the problem.Big Boss Man wrote:Yea. The only way to stop them or at least curb their activities is to be ten steps ahead of them with better surveillance, infiltrating their midst so they can get first hand information, shutting down their recruitment camps. Harsher penalties for their crimes but it's usually suicide bombers and you can't punish them. So really they need to shut the whole hating preaching, hack their communications and shut them down, monitor suspects 24/7 and be ahead of all their activities. It's a controversial topic here but IMO police needed to be armed outside arenas, airports etc better detection of bombs, exploding materials etc. Also any suspicious activity should be an arrest now, question later. Because say people noticed the terrorist loitering around acting suspiciously they could have caught them or if they were allowed guns taken them out with a sniper rifle and saved lives. I think a tougher policing strategy has to be used against terror suspects otherwise it's sadly going to get worse and worse.
Also Ariana Grande has offered to pay for all the victims funerals

Yea, thats true. It develops an anti-Muslim attitude where it's only like you say a small percentage who are committing these horrendous atrocities. It also creates a racial profiling situation where any Muslim will be targeted because of their religion which is wrong. But what else can be realistically done?. I don't really know if the intelligence is fine, because the police et al need to filter out any false information/crackpots phoning them up with false leads etc so they really need to be ahead of the game and have Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp etc monitored 24/7 the sites themselves should send out redflags to certain phrases etc. It has to be a 1000% commitment to shutting down the terrorists and you have to be ahead of them at every step.And it's having the unintended effect of making things hard for all Muslims. The 99% of Muslims who are good people get viewed with suspicion when the government won't do anything about the 1% who are radicals.
