Do Courts Need More Security?

Some say our court system is not safe.  Others advocate that the inconvenience of security in the courthouse outweighs any potential benefit.  Consider a recent event in Pakistan.  A suicide bomber literally blew himself up in court on Monday in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar.  Four people were killed and 47 more wounded. Two militants shot and wounded policemen apparently in the court gallery. One bomber managed to get into the courtroom and detonate his explosives.

Twenty-seven of the wounded remain hospitalized. The female judge was among the wounded. It is believed that the bombers were trying to free Taliban militants jailed on the premises. Also among the wounded was an attorney.
Qari Abdul Hayee (a.k.a. Asadullah), a former leader of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi militant group was arrested on Sunday.  Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is a Sunni Muslim militant group that has terrorized minority Shiite Muslims in the region. Recently, gunmen riding on a motorcycle murdered a Shiite professor, Sibt-e-Jafar, on Monday.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the courtroom attack; however, such senseless violence emphasizes the need for tight courtroom security both in the U.S. and abroad.

(People over there are crazy)
And emptying automatic weapons into a crowded movie theater is considered sane?
Blowing away dozens of 5-6 year old children on a whim is just good sport?

Yes, and to think that that culture gave us Arabic Numerals, the reason most all the stars in the sky have Arabic names, and the wheel before that...all when Europeans were religious fanatics, experiencing the Dark Ages and burning people as witches...than the Persian culture became religious fanatics and all science and reason stopped, and they have never recovered.

Jefferson and other founders had studied past great cultures to understand their failures, as to why they insisted on Separation of Church and State. The writings of Thomas Pain were very influential with the revolutionaries.

The revolution was as much against British corporations like the East Indiana Trading Company as it was against the Monarchy. After the Revolution corporations were limited in their charters set to dissolve after the project the corporation was created for was completed...and the CEO’s did not rake in all the profits.

Boy have things changed!

Especially since corporations are intent on stealing the resources and repressing the people of these Arabic nations...causing the fanatics to arise.
