Police helicopter crashes into Glasgow pub

Postby Rodion Raskolnikov » Sat Nov 30, 2013 12:02 pm UTC


Three people confirmed dead so far, with warnings that is likely to rise. I've heard they were still looking for people trapped in the building this morning (it happened about 9.30pm local time).

oh. Thank you for telling us. (i think)

These things happen. Machines are dangerous.

I am sorry for your loss.

The reports say that the Police and the people they are responsible to are all behaving themselves well.
Under the conditions, that is flattering to all.

The church seems to play a role for the people.
I read several places that the Cathedral is providing a place to greave and be comforted in a ritualized way.
That is interesting to me.
