First topic message reminder :

Prison officers were lucky to escape with their lives during a suspected terror attack in a high-security prison, officials have said.

Five members of staff at HMP Whitemoor were stabbed by two inmates who were wearing fake suicide vests on Thursday morning.

That just shows you how irrelevant the issue of the stabbing was. We weren't even arguing the stabbing...that's a given. I was debating whether it's terrorism. Here, again, is my early exception:

If we are going to move forward without evidence, the defense could argue it was an alien invasion. To say it is terrorism, without evidence, is ridiculous. Rolling Eyes

Not without evidence... They will have to have evidence to prove it when it is all facing judiciary...


There may not be any detail of the evidence in the newspaper article... But that doesn't mean there isn't any evidence...


Surely you must know that not all details are always printed in a newspaper article about any event...!?

Well, what does mean the evidence exists?  The clear implication of not talking about evidence, is to suggest you have no evidence.

Law is based on positivism: there must be positive evidence leading to a conclusion about facts...in this case, motive.  Terrorism is not a charge you want to treat lightly.  What predicate facts give rise to the allegation of terrorism, in this instance?  To go back to his initial charge is to confuse the two crimes, and commit the fallacy of association.

Tommy Monk wrote:Surely you must know that not all details are always printed in a newspaper article about any event...!?

Again, why treat a charge of terrorism so lightly?  What you are saying is, it's not important enough to even appear in the newspaper.  So, why bother with it?  Certainly, attempted murder will suffice.  If there is no evidence of terrorism, drop it.

Dude, you changed the subject.  My subject was the absence of evidence of terrorism.  Here's my original point:

Original Quill wrote:Lot's of people have been stabbed, going back to the beginning. Yet 'terrorism' is a relatively recent term. Are we just heaping on charges, thus watering down the allegation? Or, do we want to reserve it for situations in which the terrorism is real.

You misread my point, and went off on the stabbing itself.  I don't give a shit whether he is dead or alive.  It's a red herring.

The authorities are treating it as terrorism so obviously there must be evidence that supports this...


The newspaper article might not supply the details... But that doesn't mean that the details don't exist...

Don't be a twat quill...


One is already in prison for terrorism... The other is a Muslim convert already in prison for other offences...

So? The most you can say is, he likes extreme measures. He might even have learned to be so ruthless in one of those camps.

But I think they'll find he did it because one of the guards was on the take, and double-crossed him. Maybe he was paying the guard for drugs or alcohol, and the guy didn't come through. Something much simpler than terrorism.

BTW...what kind of terror can you cause in prison, anyway? You're already caught. It was a simple heinous act, unlikely to convey much of a message. Use your head.

All I did was post a thread about it... And I quoted the source news media article...


You are making too much out of it all...

Well--and I thank you for starting the thread--all I'm doing is focusing in on one facet of the story.  The mere mention of terrorism (as the original crime) leaves the impression that terrorism was the crime in question. The headline itself calls it a terror attack, and in the text repeats this with only half a retraction, calling it a "suspected terror attack".  With no evidence, that is misleading.

I just wanted to clarify. The extra effort comes from you and others, who don't want to accept the clarification, but neither do you have the evidence to contradict.

Maybe that's the problem, focusing on one facet.

It is often the case that a single facet of a story is the most important ingredient.  Who would mention WWII, and yet forget about the holocaust?  Who would talk about a rape, yet fail to mention the issue of consent?  Crucial pieces of a story are often the point of the story.
