    Are people still being killed as we speak? Also, is everyone in the truck dead, or just the driver?

    And then after that you get the people saying oh well no one cared about the attack in Somewhereistan.
    But I totally agree with you

    Blaming trucks is just as ridiculous as blaming Islam. This was either an accident or was carried out by a deeply disturbed individual.

    Remember when that white guy crashed that plane one time? Are all white people terrorists? Are we going to blame the religion of white people?
    This was not an accident. You're ill-informed to suggest it.

    As far as we're aware… no. Reports saying that one person from truck killed and a passenger escaped.

    Perhaps the driver passed out at the wheel? It's irrelevant. The point I'm trying to make is that this has nothing to do with Islam.

    I think we should forget about the motive and just think about the victims.

    have you heard of the 'bystander effect' oh righteous one?

    not that I'm excusing it but i highly doubt that most people who rant and rave about people not helping would be the ones o help out in a situation where you dont know a)wtf id going on and b) if something will happen in that spot again. it's a highly intense situation, literally life and death feelings, human nature in these situations is not to willingly put oneself in the way of harm
    so they're perfectly capable of filming them, but not helping them? they were literally pointing their cameras at their faces. they were laid in the middle of the ground, with the nearest person about 10 metres away. if they were running away, i'd understand what you're saying, but they are not. instead they feel the need to go up to dead/severely injured people and film them.

    what more harm would you put yourself under asking someone if they are ok, if you are already standing in front of them????

    You're right that nobody knows how they would react in this sort of situation, but I would like to hope most people would just go over and provide comfort if anything, not stick a nasty iPhone in their face as they died. This is all terrifyingly close to that Black Mirror episode.

    I don't think people are actively being killed at the moment but there will probably still be people dying of injuries regarding the truck, i think they have shot dead the driver but an accomplice is still on the run

    Terrible idea. How are we suppose to get to the bottom of the attack and prevent it from happening again if we just ignore the motive?
