Two Beligian police officers shot dead in hostage situation

Quote:
TWO POLICE OFFICERS have been shot dead in the Belgian city of Liege.
A gunman also shot a bystander and two other people have been wounded.
Public broadcaster RTBF is reporting that the man is now dead.
It said the gunman fled the scene, taking a cleaning woman hostage at a nearby school, but he was later “neutralised”.

Latest reports indicating he took the gun from one of the officers before shooting them both and a bystander. All three dead.

Liege

Yet another shooting in Belgium,

2 police dead, 2 bystanders dead!

Will they never learn that Integration Does Not Work???

History has proven time and again that there are Too many cultural differences between North Western Celtic nations and the Arab/North African nations for integration to work properly!


Opinions please?

It seems to me from the reading of it that the hostage situation took place after he had killed the policemen and bystander. So, I don't know - did the person just grab a gun out of a police man's holster and start shooting? Crazy to think.

I dont remember bombings and shootings in Tooting SW London in the late 80s and early 90s, when you had a mix of White English and Irish, Black, Muslims, Pakistani, etc, etc, where you had a Mosque, a Synagogue, a Catholic, and CoE Church, all within a 10 minute walk of wach other.

Intergration can work, where people have repect with each others cultures. The problem is now, people want you to feel alienated, and offended, just because of the actions of a few.

Even when it's not the foreigners, it's the foreigners.

We should have a thread about the Mali migrant who got citizenship for saving a child

Belgium is a vastly multicultural country and has been for some time. You're talking nonsense

Edit:

"Known" to the police
Released from jail yesterday.
Allegedly shouting the usual fairy iin the sky is so great message.

Wahhabism does not encourage respect of others, it does not want to integrate with Jews, Hindus etc.

A generation of people with a low skill set and education are being taught that, their religion means everyone else should get on their knees, or else..

You show no concern for the victims or their families;? just sensationalising?

It seems that a certain subset of posters, pretty much jump to there agenda any time this kind of thing happens, and if it turns out there wrong, they will either disappear or double down on being wrong.

Speaking as someone who has admittedly quite conservative views on migration, I have to ask is it that hard to wait until details come out before jumping into particular arguments. One of two things has happened;

1. Its not terror related, in which case jumping onto the issue makes you look like an irrational one trick nut.

2. It is terror related, in which case you can still make your argument but you cant be accused of junping to conclusions.

Also, while Im here, if it turns out to be a banal act of criminality or a "home grown" terrorist, try to avoid the schadenfreude of "see it happens to everyone". It just looks smug and tacky.

Multiculturalism doesn't automatically mean proper integration ... as is evidenced in all major European cities

Who do we blame for that though. Even now, in the 2010s, I would still happily walk down the same Tooting High Street, and do most times I am over, without any fear. People want you to be scared, if you are scared, their agenda is working.
