To think the authorities covered up this terrorist attack in France.

Last week in France a group of muslims attacked a bus full of people with a bomb, it appears that the authorities and media have failed to report on it which in the current climate is really strange, the video of a group of muslims attacking a bus full of people with an bomb went viral on social media and it appears the media are only now reluctantly reporting on it?!?!? Is this the new normal for Europe?

I think the media is covering it up to prevent mass hysteria and keep a lid on backlash.

I saw this earlier and thought the same.

Why don't the media hide any other attacks on Europe then? It makes no sense that it's a cover up.

From what I've read it's not a 'terrorist attack'. It's a small scale riot in response to a death in police custody.

Isn't it in protest over the death of a young man in police custody?

Not sure why they cover up this and not others? Unless there's a load being covered up.

No idea if that is staged or real, or if real - why not reported.

BUT, I tend to think that such terrorists thrive on the publicity - and by reporting such things we give them just what they want. I would far prefer there was a blanket ban on reporting of these things, and the ISIS videos of them killing people. If we don't feed them, maybe they will stop doing them <wishful thinking maybe>.

How much more is being covered up/not reported? Bloody horrible times we are living in.

Link to this being a protest about a death in custody?

Thelyingbitchandthewardrobe Thu 04-Aug-16 12:17:19

Can someone quickly tell me where this was exactly? Can't open links here

BakewellSliceAgain Thu 04-Aug-16 12:17:55

Sad thing is it's an escalation of the burning cars thing that's been going on for years in France. It's the frog in the pan of water in this case I think rather than a cover up.

SORRY, just seen, Paris again sad

Hahaha, very funny.

Or are you being serious? If so, I suggest you read your very own links before you post them.

The situation in the area was “tense for several days” after a recent death of 24-year old Adam Traore, SudInfo reported citing police sources. Traore man died on July 19, after police allegedly applied “controversial arrest tactics” during his detention, 20Minutes reports. from one of your links.

They don't want to give terrorist what they want: fame. After all, what they want is to terrorise people and this is achieved through publicity and fame.

It doesn't at all sound like a terrorist attack - in the le Parisien article it says that they asked everyone to get off the bus first!
Burning vehicles is pretty much a national pastime here in France - either by bored youths or as a protest. I live in a very sleepy French village outside of Paris and only last week we had a vehicle burnt out near us and it's by no means the first.

This and as pp said protesters use this tactic a lot in France.

Why hasn't there been an outcry at the killing of 19 disabled people by one man in Japan either? Not reported anywhere. Biggest mass killing in Japan for decades but no hashtag trending etc.

Mummyme1987 Thu 04-Aug-16 12:38:22

That should say not really widely reported anywhere.

BeardMinge Thu 04-Aug-16 12:39:24

The Japanese killings were certainly reported by the BBC, I heard about it on a radio news bulletin.

Yes but that spoils the conspiracy theorist narrative that "they" are all lying to us, and filtering the news for "their" hidden agenda.

Mummyme1987 Thu 04-Aug-16 12:42:43

Not anywhere as widely as other mass killings, no where near.
