    Indeed, the news hit just as I was headed out to the spiritualist church service, we've sent love and healing to those involved.
    Our poor world is very unsettled at the moment, big changes are needed

    I agree BB.
    These kinds of acts are becoming all to frequent and all to easy for others to do. My take on it all STOP THE MEDIA. these are all horrific copy cat acts. So very very sad. These are innocent people doing nothing wrong and people are just randomly killing. So very heartless.

    The media needs stopping for sure, sick of all the hate stories, it's why I don't read any of them now or listen to the news.

    No honour amongst terrorists it seems. The pic of one of the suspects is wrong apparently. The man handed himself in after seeing himsrlf on telly. He believes his own brother had stolen his ID documents.

    And freaken Trump.! He really needs gagging

    In this case I don't think the Press is to blame. It's the religious fundamentalists who did it, and the evil people who lead them astray, THEY are to blame.

    Even if we don't want to read all the details (I haven't and won't unless there's a particular reason I should), we need to know these things are happening. Ignoring this and other frightening issues isn't going to help.

    Equally, getting too scared by it isn't the answer either: You've more chance of winning the lottery than being involved in one of these incidents.

    But deliberately targeting children as they have been? Well, if there is a God worth worshiping, they're going to burn.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Yes, they definitely need to report it, that's fine, it's the ongoing reporting from the scene asking people over and over again how they felt when it happened and milking it for all it's worth. It's spreading fear in everyone constantly and people are over reacting.

    They've done exactly the same thing with stranger danger, do you feel safe nowadays to chat to any child that you may encounter innocently?

    I agree its religious fundamentalists too and we are giving them too much glory with the over reporting.

    Yeah, fair point - I'd stop and think hard before approaching a child, even to help. Unless it was VERY small and heading into danger. And even then I'd be worried about the reaction. I agree about the endless "How did you feel?" questions from the Press. But there has to be information getting out about this sort of thing, I think.

    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    The media all but tells you how to be a terrorist.
    Yes use the media to report, use the media to post pictures and profiles of suspects, but for the love of god stop posting the "exactly how it was done" news. This only glorifies the actions of the killers, this is exactly what they want ... infamy (if I spelled that right) These are copy cat actions, they are successful, and others are following along.
