Attack on Nice

My God:

At least 77 people were killed Thursday night when a large truck plowed through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in Nice, France, President Francois Hollande said.

The driver first shot a gun into the crowd before driving 2 kilometers along the Boulevard des Anglais, the main street in Nice, mowing down people who’d gathered to watch fireworks, regional President Christian Estrosi told CNN affiliate BFM-TV.
Police shot and killed the driver, said Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesman for the French Interior Ministry. Police found firearms, explosives and grenades in the truck, Estrosi said.
So far, no group has claimed responsibility. Anti-terror prosecutors have taken over the investigation, according to BFMTV, citing the prosecutor’s office.

Given the recent spate of Islamist attacks on Baghdad, Dhaka, Istanbul and Miami, I think it likely this will turn out to be another ISIS supporter or sympathizer.

    I think it likely this will turn out to be another ISIS supporter or sympathizer.

    And yet they won’t release any physical description that, you know, might assist in recognizing that conclusion. ¬†With what they’ve endured lately, I expect the French to start some really severe internal spying. ¬†Maybe they’ll be smart enough about it not to waste their time hassling Chinese grandmothers at the airport and actually find the troublemakers.

    And where are the anguished cries of the desperate need for “Common sense white van controls” in this case? This guy bagged even more bodies than Mateen.
