Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Manchester atrocity

Post by Heston » 23 May 2017, 7:14am

RIP to all those poor people who were killed. 2 missing from South Shields where I live. My daughter loves Ariana Grande and may well have been there if it was in Newcastle.

Absolutely sickening and heartbreaking.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Unforgivable. It's worse when it strikes in a place that's about community and joy and sharing like a concert. Particularly one aimed at younger children. Devastating.

Awful. The fact that it was targeted at a concerts likely attended by tween and teen girls (whether by design or not) somehow makes it even more reprehensible.

So sad. The targets will only get sicker I imagine.

Ugh. Just read that one of the victims was an eight year old.

This was really disgusting. Even that word seems not harsh enough. What's crazier is I'm not sure how you'd prevent this in the future.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Which is why it's so effective. Devilish in every facet.

Even greater security necessarily means a reduction of liberty and expression, so the desirability of that is questionable. Otherwise the answer is to kill and jail all the enemies or figure out a more peaceful means of persuading them to stop doing this/robbing them of new recruits. The latter isn't easy (duh) but a lot more palatable than continuing the cycle of violence.

I read this and realized you could be talking about violent jihadist or/and the EDL.

The very nature of the word terrorism. The more heinous the act the more terror inflicted. Evil.

I work in Manchester. Very strange going in this morning to be faced by armed police when coming out of the railway station. Then there was another incident that seems to have caused a panic in the Arndale Centre at about lunchtime but turned out to be completely unrelated. I went out to my gym at lunchtime and that area (near GMEX) was nearly deserted, it is usually really busy with conferences etc. One of the girls from my lacrosse club was there last night, she is fine. The next door neighbour of a lady in my office was missing all night. He is fine too. It sounds like he and quite a lot of people were held in hotels etc overnight for safety and to check if they saw anything, which presumably means that a lot of people had to go through the pain and heartache of not knowing whether their friends and relatives were safe or not. Very sad times.
