Cars and other vehicles “have turned into deadly weapons”, and should be banished from cities to stop attacks like the one in Stockholm from happening in future, according to Aftonbladet editorialist Eva Franchell.
Crackdowns on immigration or extremist ideology are not the way forward when it comes to terror prevention, according to the veteran journalist, writing after Friday’s terror attack in Stockholm left four people dead.
Instead, it is cars — which she calls “effective murder machines” — that Franchell says “must simply be removed from city centres and places where people gather, if people are to be protected in future”.
So instead of removing the people who commit these kinds of crimes, we should completely rebuild our societies so that those people will… just switch to using suicide vests and guns. Seriously, it’s not like they don’t have a whole catalog of different ways that they kill people which has been well reported on the past couple decades. No, no, if we get rid of cars, everything will be fine.
