    Training Grenades Thrown at Mosque in France

    http://rt.com/news/220819-attack-mosque-france-paris/

    Several training grenades were thrown into the courtyard of a mosque in the French city of Le Mans. One of the grenades exploded, but no injuries were reported.

    Four training grenades were thrown onto the property overnight Thursday, the local French daily Ouest-France reports. Three of the unexploded grenades were discovered by police. Police have cordoned off the mosque and so far no arrests have been made.
    From what this report says, thankfully there were no injuries. This happening mere days after the shooting at the French shooting I think it is important to say that attacking innocent people as an act of retaliation for attacks against innocent people should be condemned.

    How do you know that the people that were targeted were innocent? Were they harboring the suspects in the shooting? Were the friends of the suspects that knew about the shootings? How are you connected to this investigation?

    To my knowledge (~1990-95), training grenades do not actually explode. It's a hollow grenade with a firecracker attached to the top piece (what would presumably be a blasting cap). I don't think a firecracker, inside a metal grenade (the bottom of the grenade open), constitutes an explosion. I smell trumped up charges.

    That 3/4 firecrackers didn't go off means these have been under someones bed for a long time. They ought look for someone that got out of the military around when I did.

    Well I was raised to believe people are innocent until proven guilty.

    Innocent until proven guilty is the 5th Amendment that refers to a TRIAL. Not an actual event.

    What if the grenade was thrown because the "attacker" knew that the individuals were somehow involved? I ask again, how are you connected to this investigation?

    It's also a personal belief of mine to remain skeptical of unbacked claims.

    What if the grenade was thrown at innocent people who aren't even involved in the shooting?

    I'm not involved in the investigation but what on Earth could make you think the Mosque had people involved in the shooting that killed 10 people?

    Training grenades, which have only caps and are thrown among troops during training because they cause no harm (they're not even very loud), were used as a weapon?

    You're 11b and don't know what a training grenade is? Even an arty simulator wouldn't cause harm except perhaps to nearby windows and/or eardrums.

    Do you really think the people throwing the grenades were part of the investigation?

    I think the French should throw a Ferguson party and "peacefully" protest all mosques and Islamic establishments in France. I am pretty sure a few creative minds, a few poster boards and a couple of Marks-A-Lots, might entice a few extremists out into the light so they could draw a bead on them.

    What would your protest sign read?

    Satan Uses Islam to Spread Evil!

    Mohammad Was a Pedophile!

    Islam = Satan's Great Cancer

    I really would LOVE to see THAT protest. I hope they run those assholes out of their country. I wish America had the nutsack to do that here.

    Islam brings the worst out in me. I wouldn't piss up Allah's ass if his guts were on fire. I kid you not.

    Go ahead. Tell me what an idiot I am. I got it coming. Just trying to stay real.
