“...suspected terrorism.” What’s the doubt that justifies ‘suspected’? How about using the term ‘actual injurious intense dislike of another human (innocent) being? Does the term ‘sadistic’ apply to the injuries incurred? Were the injured all masochists who’d requested being injured to savor the thrill of terror? Are the reporters of the incident qualified, certified AI emotionless entities? Who’s on first?

Now, a day after the attack, the Swedish police still have not revealed the type of weapon used to produce the injuries, whether pointed screwdriver, sharp-edged blade, blunt surface soft foam club, lady’s slipper, Louisville Slugger, or supersonic-powered verbal insult shock wave. Is a coverup to be expected in this cold weather? Was the ‘weapon’ found but unidentifiable due to its extraterrestrial origin and design?
