Thought Experiment

Let's say that a Sikh nationalist attacked a suburban Milwaukee Baptist church on a Sunday morning, killing six people and wounding a number of others, including a cop who was trying to rescue the wounded. Let's also say that said Sikh nationalist, who had to be killed during the action, was a member of two rock bands that composed music putting forth his group's racist views. He was also active on message boards advocating the ethnic superiority of Sikhs and the development of private militias. He had amassed the usual armory in his apartment. He had been trained in firearm and explosives handling.

What would the news look like today?
