A gunman has killed two and left many injured, some seriously, in Strasbourg, France.
The gunman is feared still to be on the loose.

Not confirmed to be holy jihad, but it does have an Islamic look to it.
The gunman is said to be "known to the security forces" which is often code for this.

Call me paranoid, but the first thought that went through my head was that it would be a Right wing European as part of a black ops by our dear leaders to take the wind out of the sails of the yellow vest rebellion.

Almost certainly jihadi given the Christmas market target.

Police resources have been diverted to deal with the yellow vests protests so I suspect the usual focus on radical jihadi extremists was distracted leading to this tragedy.

Police only have finite resources of time, money and numbers!

Any major non terror emergency in counties with a large jihadi population need to accept that it will increase probability of jihadi terror attacks which are the main security threat.

Now presumed to be Islamic terrorism as it is reported that the attacker shouted "god is greatest" in Arabic whilst carrying out the attack.

As well as the two fatalities, reports state that a third victim is brain dead.

Terrorist still on the loose, and may no longer be in France. TPTB have declared a state of heightened alert in France.

It can't be a muslim surely as they've repeatedly told us they're a religion of peace. I bet it's those militant Buddhists again, killing innocent people.

I really do hope that one day those politicians that let all this happen - the diversity is wonderful brigade - that they all swing from lampposts.

That goes too far by a mile. We want these fools to be out of office and out of power but to wish them executed by any means is to join the terrorist in their extreme remedies to problems that are at least uncivilized and so fifteenth century.

While I agree with you, VT, there's not much love for politicians in the UK at the moment.

one of the reasons we chopped Charles head off was because he had conspired to have the scots invade the uk after he lost the English civil war .

I dont think there would be anything wrong with putting merkel on trial as a traitor or Jackie smith if she told police to not investigate child rape .

The fact that political leaders can get away with being traitors encourages them to be traitorous

Absolutely. If you never have the face the consequences of your decisions then you have no incentive to do the job right.

It is has been announced that another victim of the recent attack has died of their injuries, taking the total death toll to 5 Sad

I cant support calls to murder or execute politicians with whom one disagrees, whilst times are still more or less normal and they can be removed by voting.

In case of war or revolution, killing the last lot of leaders might well be justified, but not in peacetime.
As an example, I would have supported the execution of Hitler and his henchmen.

well, we might not have declared war but certain bits of islam have certainly declared war on us. When innocent parties are being deliberately murdered I'd say that was not peacetime.

I'll go by the Vermont State police rule.
If a subject points a gun at you or any other person you shoot him dead NOW!
I can't find this in print anywhere but years of incidents with death resulting make it clear it is their policy.
