There are videos on periscope of the immediate aftermath, and I really wish I hadn't watched. Just horrifying stuff

I watched those too. Reminds me of watching the 9/11 jumpers

Blood. Time after time it looks like a bigger, more and more upsetting stuff. I suffer for the shot dead person in France as for the child in the blood in Aleppo being bombed.

But this is almost gradually approaching to recreate a war like scenario in the heart of Europe.

Collective conscience and feelings are hurt by this.

Next, this pollutes European ideologies. Inside the Parliaments as outside, in the streets.

If a potential outcast becomes crazed or fanatic over an extremist way of leading his life (eventually up to his own death), the vicious cycle won't stop.

On the other hand, I'm aware that even without fueled ideologies or xenophobia, this could very well happen - Spain, 2004 - London, Summer 2005.

But this time, the dimension of this kind of things is bigger. So is the aftermath. Emotionally, socially, politically...

Why would you guys want to watch that?

Maybe because I've seen enough carnage and death up close I never understand the need to watch it on a computer.

I'm not squeamish. I watched it once. Sometimes you need a stark unfiltered reminder of what evil can do.

I don't think it's about squeamishness to be honest.

I guess I don't need a stark unfiltered reminder, I was a very young child when I saw it first hand and I remember it very well. Believe me when I tell you that what you are seeing is not "unfiltered"...nothing on a screen is.

Awful. I really didn't want another morning of choking on my breakfast when I loaded the news.

i watched it before i came to this thread - you can kinda see 3-4 out-of-focus bodies way off in the distance across a four lane road. it's filmed from a hotel balcony and it's really dark. a fire truck shows up and all you can really see is that from that point on. most of it was him describing what happened and the people on the periscope chat calling him a liar.

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.
