#1 The lorry was seen mounting the pavement and piling into anyone the driver could see, ramming over those who tried to run away.

#2 Oops. I thought I fixed that format thing when I saw it in preview. Sorry. MY inlines are the first line plus the last two lines of paragraph two.

#6 I heard Mr. Comey said today that finding ISIS members in the US was more difficult that finding a needle in a haystack. If true, might I suggest burning the haystacks?

#7 Expect the President to issue platitudes about violent extremism and bring up the idea of truck control as something to be studied by his crack national security team.....

#8 Very, very sad. I suspect most of the dead were young people.

Probably, EC, but you've still got to watch those pesky Lutherans . . . . ;-)

#19 I am just wondering how much longer this will go on before the people of France start taking matters into their own hands against this cancer.

#20 I think we could start with deporting EVERY SINGLE "holy man" who preaches hate.

#21 Local news says 70+ dead and weapons found.
Still too early to take the BS filters off.

I am amazed nothing like this happened at any of the various BLM highway blockade protests - all it would take is one driver who's been up too long and is way past ready for the terminal and a beer.

Not trying to get off-topic, as this is starting to appear on purpose, I would say:
Initially, yes, until vehicles come to a stop, and BLM probably secretly would want the publicity. Afterwards, it would be those at the end of the lines who risk being rear ended.

#26 I've said many times over the years, there are easier ways to kill large numbers than with bombs.

Never got into specifics obviously.

#29 Appears it's not over.

From the Daily Mail,

Gunshots rang out in the streets, with gunmen targeting hotels and cafes in the port city in the south of France.
