Another reason NOT to study overseas
 
Now, because the attacker did not shout Allahu Akbar, it can't possibly have been Terrorism... right?
:halo:

Quote:

Victims of acid attack: Courtney Siverling, Charlotte Kaufman, Michelle Krug and Kelsey Kosten.
French prosecutors are not investigating the acid attack as an act of terror
Acid attack took place at the Gare de Marseille-Saint-Charles station Sunday
Four American tourists were sprayed with acid – two suffered burns to their faces
The victims were named as Boston College juniors in their 20s
A woman with ‘deep psychological problems’ was in custody in the French city of Marseille on Sunday after spraying four American students with acid and burning two in the face.

The attack took place shortly after 11am on Sunday at the St Charles station, where the four women were preparing to board a train.


All were Boston College juniors in their early 20s – three of them on a study abroad program in the French capital, and the fourth based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Not much follow-up news out there, so... I guess it's no biggie to the Establishment press.

You won't matter, either, if this happens to you, not if you are an American in Europe.

Right committed by a South Korean. So much for glass houses.

Acid attacks are increasing in the UK. It is seen as a low risk way of causing severe but importantly not life threatening injury. Thus it avoids the potential attempted murder charge associated with using a knife.

In an AMERICA university Jack. Take a tour of history to improve your knowledge of the subject. You can start with the U of Texas shootings.

Help for the challenged?

Does appear that the attacker was a genuine psychiatric case

Quote:

The incident is not believed to be terror-related. The attacker, described by police as a mentally unstable 41-year-old woman, has been arrested.
The report says she remained at the site after the attack, and showed photographs of herself with burns.

You are the one that referenced that specific event. I merely pointed out that it was a foreigner that conducted it. If you wished to refer to all attacks done in any university in the U.S. than you should not have put up a page referring to a specific act, Jack.

And the police have issues with charging someone in possession. If you were found walking around with a large knife then you would have a problem justifying why you were carrying it but people do have drains to clean etc.

That's right, more proof that we need better vetting and immigration reforms.

Your weak reply forgot to mention that he was still going to an American school and armed under American law and most killed and wounded were American.

All of this and the whinny ninnies are crying over an acid attack.

No John, all of Europe is like "Taken" with wet-lipped A-rab's looking to kidnap not particularly good looking |American girls and sell them as sex slaves. That and the Muslims, sorry, Moslims, on every street corner, the corrupt and inept police and all the refugees stealing our houses, jobs and women, sure you'd be mad to come here at all! That is unless you have are accompanied by a 60 year old ex-CIA hit man with a Northern Irish accent.

Hollywood is real, didn't you know that?

If none of this seems even vaguely familiar to you as someone who lives in Europe just watch the vacuous botoxed bimbos and rug-wearing polemicists on Fox News; they'll put you Right.
