All Americans have a right to be safe and secure, and incidents such as this show us that we're still eons away from being a tolerant, peaceful nation that abides by the Constitutional "Freedom Of Religion." Is that freedom of religion limited to only one religion, and everyone else is exempt?

Hopefully, the perpetrators will be caught.
