Hundreds of lives were saved by a quick-thinking security van driver who drove his van directly into the path of the rampaging lorry, forcing the terrorist to lose control and crash.

    Saving the Swedish parliament does not seem like something a quick thinking person would get involved in.

    • I guess he meant well.

        In the future of self driving cars will that decision be made?
        He essentially made a needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few calculation.

        • I knew “Star Trek” would come into this.

          He was probably being decent in a country that chose cowardice as the better part of valour.

            It’s not clear from the story how many people at the Swedish Parliament were at risk.
            And if you take the cowardice angle, maybe he would have been better off doing nothing.

          • Perhaps he should have done nothing.

            The Swedes wouldn’t accept his help (or deserve it) anyway.

    He is not a hero

    As a result of his reckless actions, innocent people were mowed down instead of the guilty politicians who were responsible for enabling this terrorist attack
