Interview with Jesse Hughes about the Bataclan massacre

Pretty bad.  Language warning, as you might expect.
During the attack, one cop finally realized it wasn’t a hostage situation and yelled out, “It’s a turkey shoot” as he charged in, holding his gun. He got shot right through the hand and into the neck and kept going. He took a terrorist out, chased another one into the hallway, who then blew himself up, and did it to another guy, who blew himself up on stage. Our amplifiers were a gory mess.
Did that cop live?
Yes, I met him in triage. I hung out with him. Great guy.
You went to the hospital?
I had pieces of teeth and human bone pulled out of my face. A girl got shot right next to me by the shooter at the top of the stairs who I had met earlier. She stepped one step in front of me and her head just exploded. It blew pieces of her teeth and skull into my face.

True. But it don't mean nothin'.

People say things about Kumbaya and "Give Peace A Chance", but when you suddenly discover that you have no choice but to stand there and watch people die, for a good reason or a bad reason or no reason at all, you realize that peace is just a place where the bad folks haven't passed through ... yet.

"Peace" is just an interlude between one Bad Thing and the next.

Bad Things happen to everyone; if you are very lucky, the Bad Thing is like Grandma dying in her sleep.
