And exactly what would you propose DawnPatrolSUP? If this is the work of one sick individual, there is little else that could be done to prevent these types of attacks. If it was an international terrorist plot or there were many people involved, then I am wrong and someone failed to do their job.
Goes political real quick, even in a surf forum. People love to spin things along party lines. Disgusting.
Great question, I could come up with all sorts of suggestions, but ultimately it's going to be up to those are paid to do that as their job. I'm sure there will be changes made for future events, so let's just hope those changes help.
