Well done, Subby.  Horrible situation, though.
 
2017-04-20 04:16:47 PM  
Minimal killing and attacker down. Good on the French police.

Am I missing something? One cop and one attacker down. That's like a Tuesday afternoon in _______________, USA.

The French really ought to think about passing some gun control laws...  just sayin!

I don't think that old "never a cop when you need one" situation applies when the cops are the ones being targeted. "Oh look, they're right here!"

On one of the busiest tourist avenues in the world. You don't think this would be headline news if it happened in Times Square?

2nd incident nearby being reported to Reuters per. Google newsfeed. Unsure of authenticity.

They au very well pull a Trump, but it's more because the other three candidates are fighting over who has the biggest clown shoes.
 
2017-04-20 04:20:54 PM  
A man emerged from the car and opened fire on the police van with an "automatic weapon," he said.

It's not known if the attacker was a man or a woman.


Well, uh....

2017-04-20 04:21:22 PM  
So I guess Le Pen's going to win now. Or are the French less paranoid and scared of their own shadows compared to Americans?

Honestly? Probably not.

ISIS' supporters want to push the world to the brink and the world is only too happy to oblige when they pull this shiat. The radicals have been winning for a long time because it doesn't take all that much in many cases.

Can we just get it all over with? I'll take my chances in the Thunderdome, the Carousel, or whatever. I'm ready for Valhalla or 'going home.'

Wow, a friend of mine has his office right there at that very intersection.  I'm assuming that he's OK and I'm sure the overwhelming odds are that he's not a victim (I'll send him an e-mail to make sure), but it's still pretty damn eye-opening.

Interior Minister says that motive is unknown but that police officers were deliberately targeted.

I'm going to speculate wildly.

And launching a coutner-terror investigation. Not a good sign with th vote in 3 dayse.

But if ti was a targeted cop attack- how the hell do you get the jump on unaware cops and get killed in the ensuing shootout?

It's the Champs Elysees.  It's the French equivalent of Times Square and the National Mall.

In some cities in USA, its normal to have this every night.

Really?  If there were terrorist attacks in Times Square every night I think there'd be some press coverage, non?

And Trump's response: "Boy, crime, I just don't know."
