What is the qualification for labeling an incident a terrorist attack? Seems to me that throw it around for anything violent that happens, Sounds like the old gang related statements cops used to make all the time. Remember that?

Ms Burn said that when police were called to a road in Minto where the victim was, the young man allegedly tried to stab officers through a window."What made him actually act yesterday, we don't know. But hopefully, our further investigations will uncover that. It was deliberate. It was violent," she added.

They will try to tie anything into September 11th. This had nothing to do with that at all.
