    "Here's what I could translate and what information I could gather from Belgian Medias websites and news TV channels I'm watching (I'm living 20 minutes away from Brussels) :
    Nearby streets are fully shut down to cars and pedestrians, the whole neighbourhood is being investigated.
    The shooter(s) got away (over roofs), they're still looking for them. Belgian medias are reporting there could have been more than one shooter, and they possibly all got away.
    The shooter(s) is/are related to Paris' attacks.
    3 policemen are wounded, their lives are not endangered.
    Nearby schools are closed
    Police are asking medias and people now to stop filming the scene and reporting on the events"

    From the latest news reports (you may've seen them by now anyway...), but 2 are 'on the run' with 1 dead. Civilians were all ok it seems.

    Civilians are okay for now. Hopefully they won't have to pay the ultimate price for the incompetance of the authorities

    Like that's gonna happen. For you I'm afraid it is only a fantasy.
    Build yourself a time machine, go back to the 1950s and tell white indigenous Londoners that elites, without consulting them will create a policy that in two generations will leave them the minority in their own capital city. Even if you give them a go of your time machine they probably still wouldn't believe you.
    If you aren't happy with it you need to first of all come to terms with where we are now as a society as "Send the buggers back" just isn't an option.😊

    Utterly pathetic that after 4 months those behind the Paris massacre have not been found, if I were the minister of internal security, we would have them already

    I don't think it's about pretending it's not happening but about the terrorist learning exactly what the police are up to from live footage on their phones.
    Think back to how the SAS took the Iranian Embassy by storm surprising the terrorists after repelling from the roof.
    Now there would be no surprise as They would see them on the roof getting ready on rolling news 24. 😨
