    Police in Los Angeles, New York and Minneapolis have announced they will be reassessing security at mosques in both cities in the wake of the New Zealand attacks.

    “There are no known credible threats to our mosques in Minneapolis and we will be providing additional patrols,” the Minneapolis police force said.

    Los Angeles police said their thoughts and prayers were with those in Christchurch after the "horrific" attack and would be providing "extra patrols around mosques."

    Who will protect the Christian churches from revenge attacks?

    The armed attendees. Every church I've attended has at least one.

    After the Coward of Broward hid behind a pole, why the hell should we put any trust into police to protect anybody? It's not their job to protect anybody anyway per SCOTUS.

    You assume they care about Christian churches. Did they do anything after the last two high-profile church shootings? Shit, the last one got stopped by a couple of good 'ole boys from Texas with an AR.

    Yeah, this.

    Extra police protection after Christian churches were attacked here? Nope. Where was the police presence when Coptic Christian churches were attacked?

    After decades of extremist attacks, it's suddenly shocking when opposing extremists respond?

    I almost forgot! I drove past the synagogue in Pittsburgh about a week after the shooting there. Not a single cop to be seen anywhere. One of these reactions is not like the others....

    Reminds me of the state police details At Brookline and Boston Jewish temples immediately following 9/11. There were no such state police details at any Christian church in the same vicinity.

    Exactly...maybe they should be prepared for retribution against churches and places of worship other than those whose names are distinctly Arab sounding. Fortunately, I know several folks are armed at the church my wife goes to.

    I know your point and agree completely.[thumbsup]

    How about they offer firearms classes for citizens of all faiths to learn about self protection. Even run some scenarios based on common layouts of mosque vs temple vs church.

    I support people of Muslim faith being able to practice in their place of worship without the threat of violence and death hanging over them. I support this because it is what everyone deserves, the ability to practice in private with your chosen community peacefully.

    Maybe when the Muslims stop supporting the beheading of other religions I’ll give a crap.
