I have to say, if that was a deliberate attack, then they really didn't think it through very well...
That's shocking though, of all the bastard things to do.  Did the prick die?

No. He's in custody, but he killed four other people as he drove through the crowd. Bastard.

^...that's what I wanted to say.

...you realy do not want to know about the even more horrible pictures that we are receiving at the office over here right now... very disturbing... I can not comprehend how some media chose to publish pictures like that.

EDIT: the picture has been removed from nearly all websites. It is authentic, but probably the identity of the man is being hidden. Strangly, a scan of his personal information attained from the registration of the car he used, is still online.

We have a picture of the guy who did it. The picture.

The bus in the background carries the royal family. The picture was taken only a few seconds after the impact, judging from the position of the bus in comparison with the video footage.

It's horrible that I have to say this, but: thank god he is a white national. If he'd have been foreign-looking, there would have been horrendous scenes in the big cities tonight.

It's weird, y'know, I don't condone violence but would it have really mattered much if someone had put a couple of rounds into him instead of taking his picture?

Yes. Now we can probably retrieve a motive, and perhaps arrest others, because there are some suspicious circumstances. For instance, the motorcade got delayed by 20 minutes along the route, and yet he arrived at the point where he struck within seconds of the bus carrying the royal family. It is not unreasonable to suspect that he may have had a contact somewhere, helping him. Even if that isn't so, a motive is important: was he an extremist republican, or opposed to the royal family for some other reason? Or was the motive to kill as many people as possible? Many questions remain, and with luck, he can answer them.

Ha, perhaps I could've worded that differently.. what I was really angling at though is 'why bother taking a photo of the guy??'.

The guy who did that should be locked in a room with 3 bull queers and tortured, to be honest.

Such meaningless stupid brutality. It's saddening, really.

I tried not to see any pictures of it at all, but it's just impossible. I opened up the website of a local journal and there was a huge pícture which sent chills down my spine. I'm trembling like a leaf. I know it's not easy, and I deeply respect the work done by editors and journalists, but newspapers and their websites could sometimes act with more responsibility and prudence when dealing with such images - it's enough to make a good, informative coverage of the event, there's no need to delve into such terrible and chilling imagery.

It's so sad to see human beings in such horrendous conditions being exposed as objects or pieces of curiosity in a picture. The raw image of their utmost suffering has probably been sold and negotiated all around.

It's as if there were no respect at all for them even in such extreme situations. Besides, I think about the families of the people who have been killed or wounded...it's all so sad.

First time I agree fully with you :S.

Yes, this is horrendous, I mean, what the guy did with cold blood was shocking.

Horrendous.
I really wish I'd shown the restraint not to look at the footage and pictures on that dutch site - not something I needed to see, particularly that poor little girl.
People terrify me sometimes, I just cant believe what human beings are capable of doing to each other.

Wow....it's horrible to see such a festive and happy event turn into something so ugly. 

My sympathies to everyone involved. 

The thing that will suck the most is that this guy who did it will probably die from his injuries, so they'll never be able to charge him.
