Another Knife Attack in Paris.

So another nutter with a knife has killed one person and left several injured.
Police were quick on the scene and shot and killed the attacker.
It does say that he was on the ground having a "cardiac arrest". Maybe they should have taken him alive to get some information from him.

Paris police have launched a terror investigation after one person died and four others were injured by a knifeman Islamic State has claimed is one of its soldiers.

Quote:
A judicial source said authorities were looking into whether the anti-terrorism prosecutor's office should be handling the case
I'm sure it won't take long to find out some background as to whether it was terror related, or just some screwball with a knife that went over the edge.

Edit: Headline changed after latest update from Paris.

No thanks. I'll wait on the news. What's the point of more of the same old speculation?

It's racist to speculate.

Please remain inside until the appropriate sources have released appropriate snippets of information.

It could have been 3 koala bears stacked on top of each other and dressed in human clothes.

Now isn't this much nicer than any useless speculation?



On a more serious note, as someone with some more conservative views on issues related to migration and migrant communities, I really don't see how hard it is for people just to wait a while for the facts to come out rather than either; A. Jumping on the bandwagon of blaming the usual suspects or B. in the event it turns out not to be the usual suspects, reporting this with a weird kind of glee that just seems quite at odd with the events themselves.

Well, the so called 'So Called Islamic State' have claimed this one. Only after the attacker was confirmed dead and there were rumors of someone shouting something in the area at the time

Seems like he was Chechen: so probably both Muslim and White.
