Attack in Finland on Friday


I saw it on CNN yesterday afternoon. Looks like the police managed to injure the attacker, but it must be a bit unsettling to have it happen in your country.

You could say I've long ago become desensitized. And it's not that big difference if something happens here or Sweden or Germany.

At the moment people are more worried that this'll strengthen far-right.


What we know so far:
- 2 dead, 6 injured
- among the injured were a Swede, an Italian and a Brit
- victims were apparently all women except two men who tried to stop the attacker
- suspect, wounded by police, is 18-year-old Moroccan asylum seeker
- 4 more suspect have been detained (all Moroccan) and there's warrant for one more person who isn't currently in Finland

OK. Please let us know any information we're not getting on the news because you know, if it's not America, it's not pertinent.

There were some demonstrations, small enough to be peaceful.
"Finland First" - thanks a lot, Donald! - appeared near the crime scene, bringing in a counter protest like a mini Charlottesville.

Media put some attention on a black guy who went to help the wounded.


It's notable that people in this and Spain events were from Morocco. Quick look on the matter tells me Morocco has high unemployment, especially among young, causing emigration.
Government is strict on religious extremism, but some exists.

There are some political opposition who could be granted asylum by Finland, but that would be small number of political activists. So every seeker must be checked, but it's strange this guy has been here something like a year (though it might be because he's come underaged).


I haven't so far heard ISIS to claim credit for this; while they did for the similar attack in Russia.

You know what happens when someone starts stabbing people in street? Half the people around pull out phones to take video or pictures.

The stabber has previously been in Germany and Sweden. He and some of the now questioned associates have been involved in minor crimes in Hamburg, shoplifting, being in country without permit, having false ID...
Apparently he had been in some kind of fight (in immigrant center) and been suspected of assault around the time he left Germany.
Based on information from German authorities, he is likely 21 (meaning he lied to be underage when coming here, giving ammo to people ranting exactly about that).

He had been denied asylum and had filed complaint on the decision.

It's still very unclear if he acted alone, but I would imagine that had the others been in the plan, they would've just acted as group.

Police has now released all other suspects and believe the attacker acted alone.
