It's definitely terrorism. People need to be sure to keep legal definitions separate and distinct from practical spoken language. Killing and terrorizing a population for political or ideological ends is terrorism and that's exactly what he did.

Whatever benchmarks they need to meet for legal proof is another topic altogether. Besides, 6 murder convictions and however many attempted murders are on top of that would essentially have the same or greater consequences for him anyway, so the specific terrorism charge is moot.

Yup, easier to prove murder than terrorism.  I doubt he will see the light of day again.  A problem with this will be the lawyers drawing this mess out and soaking the taxpayers and courts time.
