Re: English drummer killed in attack.
Jay, I think what people are saying is they were disturbed by the story. It's pretty gruesome and seems to cross a boundary where we figured that we'd be safe from this kind of attack in populated areas in broad daylight.
Obviously it's still very unlikely (much less risk than car crashes etc) but now we know it's possible. People don't like these kinds of boundaries being crossed. It feels like a loss - not just in personal terms but also felt more widely.
