Liege/Florence shootings

The Italian attack:

Racist man goes on rampage against Senegalese vendors. I hate this, because I've seen how Italian people behave around African immigrants in Turin, my ex lived there for a year and she got used to turning down the Senegalese flower sellers, and the hustlers around the city..I always found it fucked up.
