First they came for the muslims, but I kept quiet because I wasn't a muslim www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-adi-fourth-amendment-airport-cellphone-search-20170407-story.html

Hm yeah, even if this was a muslim, doesn't change that much. We will not start treating all white supremacist like the woman in the article even if we learn that it was one who did this in Stockholm today.

The mind boggles at the "logic" that went into this comment. Someone (who might as well be a white supremacist for all we know, like the last time everyone made bigoted assumptions about Scandinavian terrorism) drove a truck into a crowd, so it's "bad timing" to advocate against hysteria and bigotry? Just... Wow.

Well, the mind boggles at your comment as well. I Guess you just started bashing away presuming an awful lot of things? Just please stop accusing people of things You have No Idea about. Please.

,

Not presuming anything. Claiming that it's "bad timing" to post this just because there was a (presumed) attack at the same time is just plain stupid, period.

,

Yes, presumed. Or did Säpo confirm this while I wasn't looking? No matter how likely this is an actual act of terrorism (and for the record, I think it's pretty damn likely), a presumed attack remains presumed until there is at least some sort of evidence to corroborate that it's an actual attack. Anything else is just peddling fake news.

An attack with a vehicle on a pedestrian street in the city center is an act of terror regardless of who is performing it. But as always it will just make the people in power hurry even more to regulate the little freedom we have left. I'm too tired to write more as I am in Asia and time is late.

Uh, no, a presumed (or did anyone confirm that this was a premeditated act yet?) attack on civilians is not necessarily an act of terrorism. You need to have some fairly specific goals to qualify for the terrorist label, hence the reluctance of some people to name Peter Mangs and his ilk terrorists.

Yeah, somehow thi link was too long and my tweet shortening script didn't work well on it, you can get the real link on my website.
