How to spot a "lone wolf"

Gunfire erupted Tuesday at a Sydney cafe where a gunman held 17 hostages. The gunman has been identified as Man Haron Monis.  He probably acted alone and does not appear to be part of a broader plot, U.S. law enforcement and intelligence sources say.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin spoke with Jeffrey Simon, Author of "Lone Wolf Terrorism" about the profiles of lone wolves

    Speaking about 'Lone Wolf' terrorists, neither I or almost anyone I talk to would be very surprised if Donald Trump created a Terrorist incident just to prove his point about 'keeping America safe' from the 'reasons' he refuses to cite as excuses for his Immigrant Ban, now that the Courts have shut down his scam. The Emperor has absolutely no clothes! What better thing than for something to happen that is orchestrated by WH Admin that would allow Trump to say 'I told you so'? I sincerely hope this never happens but considering the strategy of lies and calculated confusion that this administration has deployed to mislead his low-information followers, it wouldn't be much of a stretch to think that this could happen.

    I think our high school teachers need more power to spot this and be able to do something about it . These kids are being incubated in high school and college .
