Oh my God it’s so shocking no one could have predicted something like this would happen.

We’re definitely well into the “every single day” phase.
It is so hilarious to me that there is not even a pretense of a plan to stop or even slow this, and people are just like “well, okay then.”
France’s interior minister has said that a driver who rammed a car into police in an “attempted attack” on security forces on the Champs-Elysees was carrying a “number of firearms and explosives.”
“Once again our security forces have been targeted. The threat is extremely high,” Minister of the Interior Gerard Collomb told reporters. He also confirmed that the attacker is dead.
Collomb will introduce a proposal to extend the state of emergency in France at a meeting of ministers on Wednesday.
The Paris prosecutor’s counter-terrorism unit has opened an investigation into the incident.
Police initially told the public to avoid the area following the incident which led armed security personnel to descend on the area.
Some 30 minutes later, the police tweeted that the incident was now under control.
Videos from the Champs-Elysees show armed officers redirecting traffic away from the scene.
What am I supposed to write about this?
What is anyone supposed to write about it?
It’s every day now.
White people don’t seem to.
France voted FOR THIS.
In actual fact, they appear to enjoy it.
An element of danger.
Blur his face out. After all, it could be a white guy. If he’s brown, it’s just a coincidence, because of the Nirvana Fallacy.
