    Free Speech...

    I'm all for freedom of speech, always have been and always will, even tho here in the USA are own freedom of speech is slowly taken away when we do not agree with others. What happened with these extremists who killed those cartoonists and 8 others was horrible and should never have had happened. However these cartoonists knew what they were facing and knew the consequences they were facing by angering an extremists group. That's why some of these cartoonists had police protection because they knew the possibilities of a deadly outcome.
    We know how extremists are and we were not prepared on 911 and Paris was not prepared today. That is why it is almost impossible to prevent another attack. Sometimes freedom of speech comes with a price, especially if you taunt such a dangerous and extremists group. I wish in life these attacks would not happen, but in the real world, we know that is not possible. I also have a feeling that there will be more attacks as many will continue to support this type of mocking the faith of extremists, therefore we must be prepared.
