1. Why won't they name the attackers?

Seems odd.

7. I don't think France names criminals until convicted. I might be wrong.

3. It's not "attempted" murder anymore. It's the real deal.

I hope his attackers rot in Hell...

10. It appears they don't feel a part of the human race. With good reason, probably!

It's not normal to feel absolutely no sense of responsibility for yourself.

Reminds a person of the Biblical "Cain and Abel" story.

9. So sad. If you don't want to wear masks on bus, then don't ride the bus. I'm so disgusted by this.

Rest In Peace Philippe Monguillot.

13. Hard to undestand why it's more common now to assault someone you don't like, suddenly.

How did that ever happen?

How did so many people get so childish and vicious?

Where were their parents? Or their parents' parents?
