    London is more at risk than other cities as this is starting to occur daily.

    Wasn't it reported that a large majority of Brit cops don't carry guns? They should but it doesn't mean they'd necessarily protect civilians either.

    Yes majority of them will never carry one. but the London ones were after the recent attacks. but i think that has reverted back to standard procedure meaning no guns.

    Also your right. Personally, i think the guns could cause a lot of harm too since well an attacker could target those coppers and take the gun and go on a shooting spree.

    Sad news, I knew something like this would happen soon. Well what do expect from lunatics. These people do the same as Al-qaida but they claim it right. So many uneducated Racist MFs are out there. Muslims should look out they should know media has brain Fkd so many people they should be careful out there.

    I have personally seen armed police around city centres since the attacks, but while armed police will probably never be the norm, there is probably going to be armed police dotted around city centres to respond to any incidents even if they aren't patrolling the streets with guns on show

    If the police cared about the people then they would have straight up told the Grenfell Tower residents (now victims) to leave the building but no, they just gave them a warning of what was to come.

    There's been another terrorist-related matter just recently: https://twitter.com/PrisonPlanet/status/876775518523318272

    It's out of control.

    So if a white guy has a fight with a muslim guy and makes him scared to go out, does that make the white guy a terrorist ? If the 2 London attacks and Manchester attack had not happened in the past 3 months, this would be talked about as a hate cime not terrorism

    This is wrong.

    The world is wrong.

    Someone should make something. Why are we so weak to make a change?

    This happens where I live everyday. But not from one race or religion to another, but from the same people to themselves. And this still is a tragedy for me.

    Thoughts on the victims' families.

    There is no comparission here. This white guy was wrong to do what he did against innocent Muslims, no one has the right to take or try to take another person life , but to compare what this guy did to real acts of terror we have seen all over the world since 911 is ridiculous.

    Next you will say the council of Kensington are terroists because of all the Muslims that died in Grenfell tower, they put innocent lives at risk and now everyone who lives in similar towers are scared for their lifes too

    Actually, who cares if the victims were Muslims? A mentally retarded jerk took a truck and killed someone, that's all.

    Is this justified? Fuck no.... Is it expected? Duh. When a group of people push others' buttons, the ENTIRE group pays for it. I'm not saying this is right, it's not, but it's how the world works. Republicans piss off the entire USA? Some guy goes and shoots a bunch of them. Muslims kill innocents on almost a DAILY basis? You can bet eventually things like this are going to happen. I feel bad for any innocent Muslims caught up in this, but that's what ANY religion gets you... A bunch of extremist idiots. If you decide to be part of those groups, then you've kinda made your own bed. I'm not saying that religious people should HAVE to endure this kind of bullshit, I'm saying they are GOING to, whether we / they like it or not. It just comes with the territory and no amount of bitching is going to fix it.

    What's funny is that most extreme-right people saying Islam is cancer etc. seem to always say 'true' Islam would be the ISIS/Saudi Arabia one, and that it's the religion itself's fault. But they forget that out there there are tens of millions of moderate Muslims, who like every Buddhist, or Christian or Jew in Occidental countries or even in Maghreb countries, live peacefully and don't bother anyone with their religion. Why not consider these (who are the vast majority of Muslims btw) as the 'true' Muslims? It's like if I was saying the reference for Christian people was the Ku Kux Klan, and then call the Christian religion the culprit. That's fucking absurd.


    Also, I've seen a lot of people saying there was no recognized Muslim leader who had clearly placed himslef against terrorism. This is false. I suggest all of you to read King Mohammed IV of Morroco's speech on Moroccan Revolution Day last summer. The speech is brilliant and was praised by most intellectuals and journalist out there.

    This is sooooooooooo true. Any religion will have a bunch of extremists who shit on the entire religion's reputation. And dumbass governments like in Iran and Saudi Arabia don't improve the situation.

    Put yourself in a world where there haven't been London terrorist attacks in the past 3 months. Then, think about this attack.

    It is a hate crime. A terrorist attack is something surrounding politics.

    Here you have a hate crime because there is no political motivation released.

    Now, think about the 4 African Americans who tortured an autistic white student just because he was autistic. They tortured him in the name of Trump.
    President Obama classified that as neither a hate crime or a terrorist attack.

    So really, it comes down to personal beliefs. Was this a terrorist attack? Well, you have to figure that one out on your own.

    But if you think about it, technically any murder/serial murderer should be considered a terrorist by your logic of "Also causing terror in peoples hearts".

    thing is, is this going to get more media coverage and classed as a racial attack, or was it a terrorist attack knowing it would cause a racial divide and uproar?

    either way, the media causes such hate towards the muslim community by branding them the way they do and the simple minded people fail to understand that anyone from any country can be muslim, its a religion not a nation.

    and it will piss me off if we then see other government parties use this tragic event as a means to slag off the rival parties, when fact is regardless if they were in power theyd still be siding with the powers that be and causing wars just to profit from it.

    that is why i dont vote because theyre all full of crap.
