This is yet another example of how Europe is handling terror…
Calling a clear act of terror a “mental health issue” is the what happens all the time when a Muslim terrorist attacks people. Americans should never let the pc police hijack the narrative on this. We could cite numerous instances where a Muslim violently commits what is clearly an attack yet the powers that be claim it’s just “mental health”. A second suspect just happened to be carrying a bag with three knives in it. Was he just a knife collector?
DRIVER OF “AFGHAN DESCENT” WITH “MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES”:

A driver of Afghan descent accused of plowing a white SUV into a crowd of pedestrians Thursday in Melbourne, Australia, injuring at least 19 people in a “deliberate act” has a history of drug use and mental illness and was known to police “on historical assault matters,” police said.
Fox News reports:
Mass chaos ensued when a white Suzuki SUV red a ran red light and sped down a crowded street outside Flinders Street train station just after 4:30 p.m. Thursday, causing pedestrians to be “thrown like rag dolls,” witnesses described to news.com.au. Within 15 seconds, some people were seen “flying into the air” while others sprinted away to dodge the vehicle.
Two men, including the 32-year-old driver, were taken into custody, police said. The Afghan driver was an Australian citizen. Authorities said there was no evidence or intelligence to indicate that the incident was terror related, but they believe the driver carried out the act deliberately.
“We don’t at this time have any evidence or any intelligence to indicate there’s a connection with terrorism,” said Victoria state police acting commissioner Shane Patton.
WAS HE A KNIFE COLLECTOR?
The second man arrested at the scene was filming the attack. He had three knives in his bag — although police believe he is not connected to the attack, Sky News reported.
