I'd say the chance is pretty high that it has something to do with IS.

The Belgian national holiday is July 21. At this point I think there'll be more police than people in the streets

Yeah, I understand where you're coming from, DaveC.

I have no desire to watch the footage myself, and while I agree with the "stark reminder" argument, I think it can also, sometimes, just fan the flames of anger and revenge in people.

But others have their reasons for watching, too, so...

I get exactly what you mean.

Or inspired by ISIS, Al-Quaeda etc and that truck's cargo bound for some future planned horrific attack? ,geeeeeez

Actually just listen to NPR they were saying there was a (maybe) recent conference where this type of attack was noted as an Al-Quaeda type

it's not graphic, for me nowhere close to gut-wrenching like 9/11 jumpers. unless there's some other, much worse one you guys saw, in which case please don't tell me about it.
There's other video out there of someone walking down the street after the truck passed by. It was highly graphic and very much up close.

I agree, but slim chance at this point, with the details emerging.

Because the extreme religious believers.....

I know of major houses of worship whose Ecumenism, and commitment to
equality, social justice, environmentalism that dot't fall under the rubrik
you claim.

I too watched those people jumping on 9/11 and to this day it is burned in my memory and perhaps the only positive thing about that is I will never forget that anger I felt. With that said, I have 0 desire to see a new massacre video and it would be just painful to see. I am however okay that these exist because it will always remind us of what most of us are up against and what is really out there.

It's just sad.....
