Somebody just posted a video of it to my son's football team WhatsApp group (we live in the area) and doesn't know how to delete it. People going mental.

Isn't it just vile that someone could post that, with a laughing emoji, on a thread about an attack where at least 3 people are reported to have died?

They might be linked. We don’t know. Time will tell. More likely to be the religion of peace, though. Action must be taken to defend civilisation from these sub human scum who do this.

It’s certainly a brutal world.

Some people will actually feel more safe in lockdown and not just from COVID-19.

Strange that given that they raided a property or two earlier.

It I think means that Cade thinks people are choking to blame muslims or blm or use it politically.

 

Sort of like he does with a lot.

 

Even if the guy was shouting the Allah or blm to go round plunging a knife into random strangers imo makes him mentally unwell.

“Police have declared the stabbing attack in Reading in which three people died a "terrorist incident".

A 25-year-old man from Reading was arrested at the scene of the attack at about 19:00 BST on Saturday, which also left three people seriously injured.

Counter-terrorism police are now taking over the investigation, Thames Valley Police said.

Security sources told the BBC the man arrested is thought to be Libyan.

In a statement, Thames Valley Police said the attack had been declared a terror incident by Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon, senior national co-ordinator for the Counter Terrorism Policing network.”

The more or less cryptic comments on the BLM thread (and some on here) seemed to fall into three camps. Some thought (or hoped) the stabbings were the work of BLM protesters or at least inspired by them. Others thought (or hoped) it was the result of a racist attack ("by Neanderthals") on BLM protesters. Then came the terrorist theory which meant that our civilisation had to be protected from these (muslim) "scum".

They all had in common an unwillingness to share their logic or evidence if any for their views. And of course an unwillingness to concede that they were wrong and had no real basis for their views, and with some a fondness for inappropriate smiling or laughing  emojis.

PS this crossed with Dannie Boy's confirmation that it is being treated as a terrorist act.

Reports that suspect is Libyan who has previously served time in UK prison. So why wasn’t he lobbed back to Libya on completion of sentence? Oh I know - it would breach his human rights.

I read he served time for a non-terrorist related crime. Don't know his residence status in the UK do you?

I was being deliberately provocative. If he’s a UK citizen then he shouldn’t be described as Libyan.

Cards on the table: I am perfectly comfortable with immigration and was happy with EU freedom of movement. The exception to that was our inability to prevent people with a criminal record coming to the UK and to expel non-UK citizens who commit crimes here. Not saying exclusion or expulsion should be automatic but a sovereign state should be able to decide. The EU policy on this was a mess.

No I would probably get him the mental health help that he clearly requires. Some of us have moved on from feudal times.

It means that it’s 2020, when has it been acceptable for the police to shoot people? He should be tried and convicted in a court of law, it’s not the ****ing Wild West although a lot on here would prefer it that way it would seem. As someone who complains constantly about the U.K. and how we should rightly break away from it Ri seems to be less progressive than the wider movement he is a part of.

Not really sure if you’re correct about expulsion of any criminals, it can be easily done if they’re a danger to the public. So even if they come you can send them back, no matter where they come from.

Genuine question, but what is the difference between a terror attack and multiple stabbings? Does it depend on the ethnicity of the attacker?

Probably the reason why he done it. Shouting Allahu Akbar while stabbing random white folks is usually a giveaway.

Maybe they have found stuff when they raided his house

I'm not mad keen on the phrase. I suppose they have some evidence of motivation and it fits with the Muslim extremism/jihad narrative as most of us have been taught to understand it. 

 

But it doesn't mean much. An attack like that is obviously terrorising to those who were there and you others who feel vulnerable. 

 

My other issue with the phrase is that it implies it's the work of "terrorists", which had connotations of what that means historically - organised groups advancing an ideology, even if that ideology is mostly just violence. Seems to be the case with this guy, as with so many of these attackers over the last few years, that there was nothing like the organisation to the scale of traditional"terrorist attacks" like there used to be (IRA bombings, 9/11 etc.). Seems disingenuous to use the same phrase for lone, radicalized criminals. Adds to the intolerance of larger groups and takes the focus away from a lone murderer.

Did he do this? It’s usually widely reported if it happens. All I can see is the Daily Mail saying reports of him shouting something that nobody could work out, they also tried to tie it in with the BLM protest earlier in the day.

I think that’s a much clearer issue, mental health not always an issue. Maybe ask the person who initially said it too?

Ok I think the person who initially said it will.pick up on the question if he chooses to.. Wuhen a black police officer kills a white person is it automatically racist?  When a white police officer kills a black.man is it automatically racist? And mental health is never an issue? 

I agree with point about "Terrorist" being used indiscriminately. But I think "racist" is also.

Terror tack and multiple stabbings can of course coincide.

As to your second question the Norwegian guy who killed all those people in a summer camp a few years ago was a terrorist. The white people who killed all those children in Charlestone were terrorists. The Provisional IRA were terrorists.

So no it doesn't depend on the ethnicity of the attacker or the attacker's victims.

It could also be argued that the IRA were freedom fighters.

I’m not making a case for them.
