Gunman takes hostages after shooting at police in the south of France

At least one person is feared dead after a gunman claiming allegiance to Isis took up to eight hostages in a supermarket in southern France in an apparent terror attack, according to local media and French officials.

The attacker struck at the Super U shop in Trèbes, near Toulouse, on Friday morning and is thought to be alone inside the shop with a single police officer after releasing a number of other hostages, according to the town's mayor.

France’s interior ministry confirmed a response was underway by police and security forces while the country’s prime minister said the situation was “very serious”.

Selon nos informations, le preneur d'otages est lourdement armé, notamment de grenades. Il a par ailleurs été vu dans sa voiture, criant "Allah Akbar" et disant vouloir venger ses "frères en Syrie". Il est par ailleurs connu de la DGSI pour avoir été l'un des tous premiers candidats au djihad. Selon nos informations, il réclame la libération de Salah Abdeslam.

EN DIRECT - Deux morts dans un supermarché de l'Aude : le preneur d'otages est connu de l'anti-terrorisme

There is literally nothing that bothers me more than when someone goes on a killing spree and cops are like yeah we knew he was a terrorist! Well since you knew this guy was an extremist nutjob how about you do something about it BEFORE he goes around shooting cops who are jogging or taking hostages in a supermarket in an attempt to "get justice for Syria" what the actual f*ck!

Also it's against the law in France literally punishable of up to 5 years in prison if someone even says they support terrorism, do your jobs!

it does. the law however is only applied on french citizens who might dare to defend themselves or deter terrorists. everything is well under control.
As opposed to the US where mass shooters are clearly deterred by wide spread gun ownership... No such event ever happens in the US, wouldn't you know it.

i am not a fan of legalizing the possession of weapons. it goes without saying that more weapons in the hands of people will lead to more more crimes and more unfortunate accidents.

the more important point however is the reason why people commit crimes. most people who are intent on killing and violence will always find away even without a firearm. that's what your signature assumes, no? they will find a way or make one.

it is better and more efficient to address the underlying reasons and causes of crime in conjunction with addressing the tools and the methods, and this where both sides of the weapons debate fall short.

what would you do next? ban vehicles? trucks? chemicals? etc..

Actually you are absolutely correct.

Compare two USA events - one has happened in February in Florida and another has happened last week in Maryland.

And yet you'd rather die and/or sacrifice your children in the name of faulty ideology then live and be happy.
