Terror Attacks

Now being reported that the only death is the attacker. Shows the danger in people trying to be the first to report things, and indeed jumping to conclusions before the full facts are established. 

Didn't the BBC report it as 3 dead first ?

As far as police Scotland have said - this isn't being treated as a terrorist incident. Just going off what they have said. 

Last week somebody told me on here that it would take an attack like this on someone close to me to make me 'wake to up the reality'. His views being that we should ban anyone coming from North Africa. 

Things always feel heavier when they happen close to home. No matter what they are. This hasn't had any change on my views and I'm not going to start laying into asylum seekers and refugees or calling for drastic changes to immigration because of recent events. Even families of folk killed in such attacks have often spoke out when political groups have tried to use the victims to further their cause. 

Just awful for everyone involved and I'm sure we're all tired of having to say it. 
 

Spot on, everyone is tiring of it, becoming too frequent now. 

Lockdown clearly is playing on the mental health of so many people now, very sad indeed.

That's good it's just the attacker who's dead. 

Wishing a speedy recovery to all those injured.

Yes, showing exactly the dangers of jumping on the back of unconfirmed social media reports rather than waiting for any sort of official statement.

As @London Wanderer said, Sturgeon got it spot on in trying to prevent rumours and gossip taking hold.

Still sounds like there have been some serious injuries, nonetheless. Fingers crossed they all make a full recovery, in particular the copper putting themselves in the way of danger to protect others.

We stayed there last time England played in Glasgow 

 

Was it being touted as a migrant hostel then as well? 😄

Apparently a lot of Kurdish folk staying there. Got to know a fair few families when working in London and worked with some Kurds in a kitchen years back. Sound to bone all of them and they've been on the frontline in the fight against ISIS in recent years. Hope none of them were hurt.

Some really good folk amongst the Kurdish people, got immense respect for them 👍
