Incident In Switzerland

Recommended Posts

FFS...

A knifeman has set fire to a train in north-eastern Switzerland, leaving six people in hospital with stab wounds and burns, police say.

The suspected attacker, described as a Swiss man aged 27, was also taken to hospital after the incident near Salez in St Gallen Canton.

He had ignited a flammable liquid before attacking people with a knife.

Among the injured is a child of six. There was no immediate information as to motive or background.

Three rescue helicopters are at the scene. A major police operation is under way.

The attack occurred around 14:20 (12:20 GMT) as the train was approaching Salez station, between the towns of Buchs and Sennwald.

Several dozen passengers were on board at the time of the attack.

Apart from the child, a girl and a boy, both 17, two women aged 34 and 43, and a man aged 50 were hurt.

Any I.D on the Perp yet?

"A 27yr old Swiss Man" ? well is he ethnic Swiss?

or someone residing in Switzerland?

We have seen these type of Train attacks before in Austria / Germany & Belgium / France

and they all had Islamist motives.

"described as a Swiss man...."

And just what does a Swiss person look like? Is that a thinly disguised way of saying 'NOT black/dark skinned/of Mid.East appearance'? In an attempt to nip in the bud the sort of immediate reactions that HPCer types will launch into?

Until told otherwise let's give them the benefit of the doubt and assume this person is a bona fide Swiss citizen.is an accurate description. After all the Swiss have indiginous nutters the same as everywhere else.

BUT, given recent events (and shameful attempts by the media at being "economical with the actualite"), I suspect few here will be surprised and raise a collective sigh IF he eventually turns out to be of non-Swiss and non Judeo-Christian backround.

This attacks are reported so matter of fact as if it was someone on a train asking to borrow a newspaper. The reports can never begin to report the reality of being in a confined space with a fit young man running amok with a knife or axe.

Or a cut down AK47 which was the case on the Thalys Train from Belgium to France where luckily off duty US Marines heard it being loaded in the toilet and jumped the Perp.

Yep.

One can't begin to imagine the terror that was on that train - people of all ages, health conditions, people just chilling and then one of these evil freckers starts trying to murder people.

The news reports often make it sound as if the knife-men merely wanted to stab at people - give them a few pokes here and there. The truth is terrible wounds, blood loss, murder and death.

By the way every Adult Swiss Male takes part in national service and is given an assault rifle to store at home.

Because Switzerland does not have an Official Army it has a trained civilian defence force.

Yes, the Swiss recently placed orders for better assault rifles for their 'home army'. They are not stupid.

These people could have life-changing if not life-threatening injuries but the media reports it so glibly.
