It would be best not to simply speculate on motives just yet. Nationality is incidental until more is known.

Pretty sure the attacker was just after leaving the cinema before he started his rampage.

Before this descends into a muslim bashing thread, I see no relevance to your sarcastic post regarding the immigrants that have/are coming over.
It is understood he is from Syria but not confirmed.
And even if it is confirmed he is from Syria then what difference does it make?
Is it somewhat worse that a Syrian would murder someone than if it were a French/British/Irish national?
Murder is murder regardless of your nationality.

I think by now after so many of these type of events turned out to be nothing but coincidence we should know not to speculate or imply anything until further information comes out.

Anybody using a tragic event, where people have lost their lives, to score cheap political points needs to take a long hard look at themselves...

Well every cloud has a silver lining. Innocent people dead and injured but at least we can make gloaty little posts!

Although I'd imagine some people are still actually rubbing one out in vindictive glee.

They're just struggling to hide their considerable glee at the needless loss of life, pay no notice.
