And this time it's Euro-wide.

Having the army out on the streets seems like less of an overreaction now.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away...

Crazy scary times. Was in London earlier today (Waterloo, Westminster, Charing Cross), heavy armed police presence throughout, but thousands of people as it was such a lovely day... No doubt many many people still in the general area of the incidents.

Update: Appears to be three incidents ongoing

London Bridge: Van hit pedestrians - report of more than one fatality

Borough Market - Reports of stabbings, armed police in attendance and shots fired

Vauxhall - Officers responding to 'incident' in Vauxhall

The live feeds out of london have police clearing the streets, police basically yelling at crowds to get inside for safety and saying if you don't have ballistic protection to take shelter, there was also footage of police making an arrest of one suspect. But the vibe was very much as if there was an active shooter, and this was after the bridge incident and market. One feed of the bridge showed a significant presence of ambulances and riot police.

Anyway, hopefully the casualty rate stays low and those responsible are dealt with quickly. Remain vigilant my friends.

There are reports that one or two of the assailants was shot by police and had canisters strapped to his chest. Also reports of people hearing explosions and the police saying they're responsible the detonations, they had to do some controlled detonations of suspicious objects on the bridge itself.

By controlled detonations, I'm hoping they mean the murderers' bodies. Don't leave anything of them to be buried.

They're wearing suicide vests. I hope the Police aren't going to the trouble and extreme risk of trying to remove the vests from the body/still living suicide bomber before detonating. I'd much prefer they just blow him up, even if he is still alive, than risk a Police Officer's life.

I'm broken now. These attacks, all of them, are driving me to depression. I'm just gutted looking at the hopeless situation in front of us. I'm lucky. I live in Northern Ireland were this doesn't happen. I can't imagine what anyone living in London or Manchester or anywhere like that must feel like these days. How do you fight the urge to just stay indoors and give up?

I can see why there’s no US politics topic here anymore, common sense or even basic human compassion are skills lacking in the average Murcin.

I'm old enough to remember the “troubles”, attacks will happen more people will die and nothing will change. In the end it will fizzle out, to be replaced with another group of nutters. Life for 99.99 of us will go on unaffected as always.

I know these attacks wont change us one bit, but the futility of there insanity makes me ******* furious as all the scum before them did. Don’t you know your murderous rampage will be forgotten in a week? remember those guys who came before them.....No, no one does. Their for nothing and achieve nothing. Their dead and we are still here, and not going anywhere.

Well tragedy always means more in person, death up close is not a fun thing, I know. But tragedy happens and the rest of us get on with our lives. It happened when the Nazis bombed us, it happened when the IRA bombed us, and it happens now when the weirdy beardys attack us. It hurts but we keep going, thats how you win, don’t stop.

Ah, Sir, a novel is a mirror carried along a high road. At one moment it reflects to your vision the azure skies, at another the mire of the puddles at your feet. And the man who carries this mirror in his pack will be accused by you of being immoral! His mirror shews the mire, and you blame the mirror! Rather blame that high road upon which the puddle lies, still more the inspector of roads who allows the water to gather and the puddle to form. -- The Red and the Black by Stendhal -

Just do what people in the Vasque Country did in the old-ETA days. Don't take more risk than needed, but live your live normally. Those are all horrendous attacks, but as a individual you shoudln't put in them more thought time than the most basic. Just like you aren't going by the streent thinking about the posibility of a car loosing control and killing you. Or a roof tile droping in your head from a building. You don't go to a ruined building or walk in the middle of the road, but thats the max you can do before entering in paranoia.


EDIT: Obviously, the police force should go after those terrorist, don't think I'm saying "Just live with that": I'm talkig what as a civilian you should do.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

Exactly, do not let terror consume you or else they will win. If we all come out to show off that we are not afraid they will lose their weapon and will only become more erratic and irresponsible with their power.
