Woolwich Murder

Again, the use of language is a problem in the media. What happened today is a terrible crime – a brutal murder in the open street. However, the way that this is being reported on is worrying. The focus should be on the murder, not the (implied – remember, we have very few facts) religion of the perpetrators, or the idea that this is an act of ‘terrorism.’ What this is, is a murder. To say anything more is, at best, speculation.

At this point it is far too early to say anything further with any level of certainty. So, we should not.
