    Why is it...

    when the occasional someone goes on a murderous rampage with a gun, we're lectured America has a GUN problem...

    when the occasional someone of color is killed while resisting a cop, we're lectured America has a COP/JUSTICE SYSTEM problem...

    when the occasional Christian, Jewish or Catholic someone publicly denounces something they might find objectionable to their religious tenets, we're lectured America has a RELIGION problem...

    but when Muslim someones consistently ply their murderous global trade in the name of Allah, we're lectured it's only a MINISCULE faction of "EXTREMISTS" who pose the problem?
