    Stabbing attack in Russell Square

    Some utterly depressing news to wake up to. A woman killed and several injured in mass stabbing incident in Russell Square. More than likely terrorism.

    The new mantra from the authorities is "mental health issues". Hopefully it isn't terrorism this time though. Either way, we live in horrific times.

    Damn another one, I lived just around the corner from there and saw no trouble in 3 years. Even during The London riots when concerned relatives would ring me, I would joke that the only time it would kick off in Russel Sq was if Waitrose ran out of hummus.

    Sensational title...

    probably turn out the same as the Leytonstone incident, history of mental health issues but inspired online

    I don't think it should be headlined as a terrorist attack. Apologies for any confusion.

    Agreed, the police have said they don't know why it happened yet. Sad times for everyone concerned, why muddy the waters with sensational headlines? Leave that to The Daily Fail.

    The initial reports indicate a mental health issue. We need to underplay the terrorist tag since it generates even more terror.

    Please consider updating the title of this thread.

    The police didnt kill the murdering idiot - according to some our police are always violent and trigger happy??!?

    Erm... the British Police are hardly deemed trigger happy.

    A terrifying act does not make it a terrorist attack.
    If it was a schizophrenic that wanted to enact revenge on Short Circuits Johnny 5 getting a beating. Or an individual that has been easily Influenced to thin the populace based on a mental instability. These would be truly traumatic and poop in pants terrifying. They would not be terrorism.
    Until the facts one out, yes the OP is scaremongering and sensationalising the story. Regardless of paper headlines etc, they didn't write the opening post.

    Wouldn't touch it mate, feeling very happy this morning apart from hearing this sad news....:(

    An MP gets stabbed in broad daylight and the suspects name and alleged motive are in public before the police have even lifted him off the floor.

    Some randoms get stabbed and it's "mental health issues"

    Of course its "mental health issues". No one in their right mind randomly stabs 6 people but that still isn't a motive.

    If you wouldn't touch the Daily Mail, how do you know what they are reporting.

    Remember the riots over shooting Duggan the Drug dealer?
    British Police show restraint where possible is the point and this incident in Russell Sq is a perfect example.

    How many times have Police actually shot people though?
    The London Riots was a one off and like usual it was the disenfranchised venting their anger and/or dominoes effect.

    Still - I'm glad people like Duggan were put in the ground.

    Rubber necking happens a lot in Misc.

    why did you actually change the title for. its what you believe stick to it. who gives a cr4p what anyone else thinks, no one seems to care what you think!
    but to be honest he's not Muslim so impossible for it to be a terrorist attack anyway.

    Where does it say he's not Muslim? I've seen nothing about his identity.

    it does say dark skinned guy! but if he was muslim there is no way it would last this long for them not to put a label on it.

    So you really don't know, do you? You've simply made an assumption.

    I think the fact that many here have sought to discredit the terror theory before the guys identity is established is a good thing, don't you? He could very well be Muslim, but they've looked past that possibility in the belief that it could just be a mental health issue.

    hahahahah whos mad. i aint mad dude. im just abit confused as to why op changed title? just because people told them to.

    In Germany the refugees are given a quick psychiatric evaluation, which enables the authorities to claim they had been in contact with mental health services in the past, and then leave it to the people to reach the 'correct' conclusion.

    They are indeed crying this so often that the people are rapidly losing trust in the authorities will to protect them.

    ​you'd think wouldn't you? aswel as my sarcasm in my posts its kind of true too. to be honest. any attack on anyone i say is a terror attack. its terror which is what the criminals want to put into hearts of people. its a shame but thats the way it is.
