Threats and Tools of Violence

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2011

The attack on Congresswomen Gabby Giffords and death of Judge John Roll have unleashed a torrent of recrimination and anger at the depth to which American political discourse has sunk.

Rather, it is a terminal result of a culture that focuses on the 'otherness' of a segment of its people.
