Two more mass shootings recently took place in the US - one in Atlanta and one in Georgia - making 103 since Jan 1 of this year.  The motives for either are unclear according to police, and yet some are already labeling both terrorism: white nationalist in the first case and Islamist in the second.  Borealis takes issue with this constant 'instant analysis'.
