    So now what is the outcome ? Will this 60 be labled as Terrorists and asked pay the damages if proven guilty ?

    These people, who take the law into their own hands, have never gotten beyond the status of jungle man and have no brain. They want to take everything from this state but give nothing. The stupidity of these people is more dangerous than any terrorist can ever be.
