Use of the term terrorist[edit]

You are right, Roscelese, the linked essay was irrelevant. That's because I had a brain freeze and wrote WP:FANATIC instead of WP:TERRORIST in my edit summary. That latter link is part of the WP:MOS and is not irrelevant. Badmintonhist (talk) 20:08, 26 June 2012 (UTC)

Inconsistency[edit]

Barrett is called "bodyguard" in John Britton and Paul Jennings Hill, but "clinic escort" in Clinic escort and in the source in Paul Jennings Hill.

The two terms describe fundamentally different concepts, so this should be fixed in all articles.

There appears to be no source for "bodyguard", so I would favor "clinic escort". ---- 91.10.39.145 (talk) 05:31, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

@91.10.39.145: there definitely are sources saying "bodyguard". I looked into it a little and it seems that the Barretts were affiliated with the clinic, but they arrived together with Britton, escorting him, on the morning of the murders, so it seems like both are kind of true, in a sense. –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 21:17, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
The articles are still inconsistent. If Barrett had both roles (absolutely plausible), that should be mentioned. Though I think it's likely that at the time he was bodyguard, Britton probably didn't need a Clinic escort in the sense of the article (ie. fending off hecklers, not bullets). ---- 91.10.39.145 (talk) 21:41, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
