This is just horrible but somehow I'm not surprised.

Feel sorry for the victims and their families.

I don't think its official yet but ISIS has claimed responsibility for this.

Warning, Mail Online has some pretty graphic pictures of this. Some very hard to look at, I moved passed them pretty fast. Feel so sorry for those people.

At least 73 feared dead in Nice Bastille Day attack

Yeah, even if you've seen stuff like that happen in real-life, those images are still seriously disturbing. I had to stop looking too.
What's worse, France was still under a state of emergency when it happened and that didn't stop the attack.
Imo, instead of just saying France can't be under a state of emergency forever, the French president needs to address the issues that allowed the attack to happen. People already know it takes a long time to heal after tragic events but a lot of that time needs to be used for prevention.
One example - those roadblocks were enough to detour normal traffic but not a nutjob terrorist. They should have been designed to derail any vehicle, especially after that last terrorist attack. The French president already knew that vehicles were being used to slam into crowds.

ISIS would claim responsibility for someone farting. They are a joke, they claim responsibility over every little thing that happens whether they knew anything about it or not.

Ugh, so terrible. I don't even know what to say anymore when these things keep happening. I just feel awful for not only the victims and their families, but everybody else who was there and had to experience it. It's a messed up world that we live in. Pretty sure I've been to that exact spot in Nice, too.

:(

The president of France changed his mind and is extending the state of emergency for 3 more months. Also, all demonstrations are banned in France for 3 days.
Warning, some graphic content included.
At Least 80 Dead in Terror Attack on Nice

EDIT
The truck driver was a 30 yo Tunisian that moved to France and was well-known to the French police. So why did they let him have grenades and guns and why weren't they watching him?
Something's seriously wrong with this story... just saying.

This easily (and kind of surprised it didn't) could have happened during the Euro tournament.

That was the biggest fear of officials.
