Random Car Accident Sweden

Two dead after truck runs through crowded pedestrian area in Stockholm. Too early to put this in the terrorism section?

Not too early. Apparently it was hijacked and deliberately driven into people.

I recently received this.

Quote:
Swedish media confirm that 5 people were killed and 8 others injured by the truck which drove into a crowd of people outside a busy department store in Stockholm on Friday, April 7.

The incident took place at 14h50 local time on the Drottninggatan street near Klarabergsgatan.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said one suspect was arrested and everything indicates that it was "a terror attack."

Swedish intelligence agency Sapo confirmed that it was "a deliberate attack".

The truck had been apparently carjacked earlier Friday. "During a delivery to the restaurant Caliente someone jumped into the driver's cabin and drove off with the car while the driver unloads," communications director MŚrten Lyth told the TT news agency.

Police operation in the area is still ongoing. Several buildings in the area and the Central Railway station were evacuated by police.

Why would one think that this was random? Inspired, directed, and planned.

^Initial reports were that it was just a truck that struck and killed at least 2 with no mention of the driver or anything else. As a warning for the slight chance that it turned out to be a true accident, and for humor, I put random in the title. I asked myself why would I use such crude humor, but we do have people out there especially in Europe that would like to pretend these events are simply coincidental.

LOL is the prime minister going to be investigated for "hate speech" like that police chief was?

That meme just got stolen. A woman on Tucker Carlson tonight said Sweeden suffers from a vacuum of values and the nationalistic and religious prideful refugees are filling that space. Good analogy.

Spelling error in thread title corrected.

Attention to detail always appropriate.

Roger. I thought I got it right the first time. "Sweeden"came up from autocorrect on my phone .

If you think misspelling a word makes one an idiot you're trying to troll. I don't care what you have to say, how much does professionalism and maturity count for?

I don't want to be too cynical, but seriously thought about starting a thread betting on the over under on when and where the next attack would be. I'm sure some Intel folks on here would be able to crush that.

Well, Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter are coming up this week. Throw a dart at a map of Europe and you'll be fairly close.

So the Swedes have come together with a #openstockholm tweet and a rally, so there's that... I wonder how that's going to work out for them? It's like a bunch of 20 yr old libs but just a whole country of them...

Their 'leaders' and cultural influencers (media, academia, etc) are selling them out. A preference cascade is coming, one way or the other. S/F....Ken M
