    Default Paris shooting: 12 dead after gunmen storm satire newpaper's HQ

    not sure what to do but something needs to be done about this element in society.

    Black-hooded gunmen shot dead at least 12 people at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, a satirical publication firebombed in the past after publishing images lampooning Muslim leaders, in the worst militant attack on French soil in recent decades.

    Another 20 people were injured, including five critically, in the incident and police union official Rocco Contento described the scene inside the offices as "carnage."

    The newspaper's editor and one cartoonist are among the dead, police said. Spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor Agnes Thibault-Lecuivre confirmed the deaths of the men who went by the pen names Charb and Cabu. A police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation, said two police officers were also among the dead, including one assigned as Charb's bodyguard after prior death threats against him.


    Luc Poignant, another police union official, said the attackers escaped in a waiting car and later switched to another vehicle that had been stolen and drove into the suburbs of east Paris. They are still at large.

    French President François Hollande was at the scene of Wednesday's shooting and had ordered top government officials to convene an emergency meeting.

    'This is the darkest day of the history of the French press.'
    - Christophe DeLoire, Reporters Without Borders
    "This is a terrorist attack, there is no doubt about it," Hollande told reporters.

    Hollande is expected to deliver a national address this evening.

    Meanwhile, the office of French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that the country has raised its anti-terrorism alert to its highest level following the shooting and reinforced security at houses of worship, stores, media offices and transportation.

    Hollande also said French police have thwarted several other planned attacks "in recent weeks."

    News channel iTELE quoted a witness as saying he saw the incident from a building nearby in the heart of the French capital.

    It's disgusting that anyone would feel the need to take someone else's life because of a cartoon. Let's hope they can catch these bastards and roast their nuts.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    There's millions who agree with this type of BS on the planet. WW3 started already we are in the opening stages.
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    If only we could deconstruct and eliminate organized, dogmatic religion, especially those Abrahamic ones.

    Yet another reminder of the fact that we are morally superior.

    Even Bill Maher agrees...

    That is a very real fear of mine . These animals would love to get a dirty bomb to use against 'us' . This really is WW3 imo , and we have to nip this crap in the bud - NOW !!!

    I knew one of the cartoonist killed, was friends with his daughter. This is the worst attack on freedom since 9/11. I'm in a state of shock.

    Just awful. I'm not sure what to do either, but admitting there actually is a radical Muslim problem might be the way to start.

    I went and saw the Book of Mormon earlier this year. The Mormon Church simply bought a two-page ad in the program that said, "If you liked the musical, you'll love the book." Seems like a much better way to handle criticism than, ya know, killing people.

    That is the way to handle it. Point out that we handle things better than they do as a reminder.

    Shame and shun the morally inferior and their apologists and give the sane among them something to strive for.

    But how come these guys are able to use social networks for their propaganda. We're not winning the digital war against them. Twitter is being very lax and has blood on their hands.

    I can't fault twitter for allowing people to express themselves.

    The reason it's effective is because many confused souls play into their hands inadvertently. Many that have radical political views and/or hate religion will use some freshman level moral relativity argument and young people and the emotionally immature lap that stuff up.

    When you see it just shame them and laugh at their inferiority. Kids won't want to be associated with what society views as losers.
