This is such an awful thing to happen and my thoughts are with the family and friends of all those who died.

I was really horrified when i saw pictures in some of the newspapers showing some of the victims after the accident and in particular of a small girl been giving CPR. I really hope that news agencies throughout the world can show sensitivity about which pictures they print as many show the last moments of the innocent victims. Im glad that this forum has totally banned all links to pictures of the event

This is surely the most assinine, crass, rude and uncouth statement that I have ever seen. You are taking what is a horrible tragedy and trying to turn it into a joke it seems. This statement is completly inappropriate at this time.

I think it's a good decision to not allow pictures or videos from the tragedy. I was actually crying when I saw the images God bless everyone especially the victims' families

I try to understand what did this man want when he did this but I can't! Did he want to "punish" the royal family for his situation?!
Does anyone know if this driver had family: wife, children?

You must be joking. You cannot seriously think that someone kills innocent people just because he wants the Queen to abdicate.
Tasteless comment!

I was very shocked and saddened to hear the news of the car crash today. It is too bad that a day of celebration has been turned into a day of tragedy. My heart goes out to all of the victims and their families.

This is just horrible.

There is no way we can understand why he did what he did. We have to realize that any person to do such a thing deliberately, is not of sane mind.

This matter is indeed already sad enough without wild speculations about this or other aspects of it. Let's stick to the facts, though I understand many of us are upset by this all.

I'm particularly saddened by the death of the little girl. She was probably very excited to see the Queen, and the Crown Prince and Princess. Rest in peace, little one. :-(

Apparantley the little girl wasn't among the deceased ones.

A pregnant woman was.

What a mind numbing day to wrap one's head around. One moment everyone is laughing and celebrating this wonderful day, and the next moment unimaginable yet intended tragedy strikes. I don't understand how someone can make the choice to create such sadness.

I actually found out about this on CNN.com. My condolences to all Dutch people. I cannot fathom why someone would want to assassinate someone as highly respectable as Queen Beatrix, especially on such a festive, fun day. The video that I saw on CNN was truly awful.

The chairman of the national Orange commitees expresses his hope that we can keep celebrating Queen's Day the way we did. He also says that the last years the security issues have become more important, esp. since the family is expanding and more difficult to protect at such an event.

Everyone has the option on whether to open a link or read a story, as you did when you read the papers yourself. Unless you read the thread from the beginning, most people do not know a ban is in place.
