19 dead as many as 50 injured. Possibly a nail bomb. Possibly a suicide bomber. Terrorism suspected. With 20,000 people it could have been so much worse.
RIP

Police said they would treat the explosion as a "terrorist incident" until they know otherwise. Manchester police said they were working with national police and intelligence agencies to investigate.
If this were to happen in the US under Obama's watch, we would be told not to jump to conclusions about it being terrorism.

I stand with the UK! Diversity is our strength! We will not be overcome!

Blah blah blah.

Meanwhile back in reality nothing will be done and in a few days we will roll back over and go back to sleep... until the next time and the next time and the next time. The world has lost the will to do what needs to be done.

Generally speaking, diversity is a strength. Exactly what it means, though, is a big topic in its own right, with lots of ways to interpret it.

8 year old girl confirmed dead. The singer was very popular with young women, thus there were a lot of families. ISIS has claimed responsibility.
Apparently occurred near an exit as everyone was leaving. May have done this to avoid detection, since the suicide bomber wasn't inside the venue.

Bomb made by an expert, filled with nuts and bolts that tore through the crowd.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has said he believes the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city” and encouraged Londoners to be vigilant to combat dangers.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

Just passively accept it is his message.

...and he's the mayor, a hopeless failure.

As if terrorist attacks are unpreventable. That is the way the losers talk (to borrow one of Trump's favorite insults). This is exactly how politically correctness is literally killing us.

These attacks will continue in politically correct countries across Europe. The politicians, police and in some countries the "royalty" are committed to their country's self immolation. Go read the responses from these people to this heinous attack upon children. They have no shame, no honor, no sense.

Don't worry there is an online tutorial on how to change your facebook profile to show solidarity!

They have it covered. I feel better now!!!

I am sure there is a Poundsign thingy as well. It worked so well to #bringbackourgirls from the Boko Haram losers
