Knee-jerk anti-government sentiment is not a viable political philosophy.
Tragically, there are now reports that at least some of the hostages were killed.
Yes. I keep hearing that there were at least four.
Nevertheless, it looks, preliminarily, as if the swat teams did a brilliant job.
Latest on France 24 6.15pm Paris time: all three terrorists the Kouachi brothers and Amedy Coulibali are dead, one accomplice (the girlfriend of Coulibali) fled the scene before special forces arrived at the Jewish grocery store, 5 hostages are dead and 4 are gravely wounded.
Update: the 4 wounded are cops.

"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
Hope the last suspect is found before she can cause even more damage to humanity.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
