Default London Bridge Incident

There has been what Met Police are calling a terrorist incident near London Bridge. A number of people have received serious knife injuries and the knife man who was wearing a (fake) suicide bomb vest has been shot dead by police.

The Police would have no way of knowing it was a Fake Vest, So to safeguard themselves and any bystanders they did the right thing.

I was in no way criticising the police for taking him out John. My own father was in the police, he received a commendation for tackling someone holding up a shop with a hand gun which turned out to be a replica but he had no way of knowing that.

Well its a good thing the police are now taking positive action and not sitting back to wait and see what happens ....

Could have been much much worse.

Hi chaps ,

I won’t say all the usual stuff and light a candle .
Our Irish harts are with you and we mean that .
Today Lisa Smith our own jihadi bride has landed in Eire .
The ranger wing was deployed to turkey with cover of UN base in the golan heights Syria to brig her back home .
What could possibly go wrong. ...
Well done to the good people of London who took down that thing and your cops who
Made it stay down.

Rob

Reading the reports today it seems that there was some incredible bravery from some members of the public.

The videos show a man walking away with the knife in his hand having just disarmed the b*****d whilst others hold him down and then the armed police arrive.

Totally correct action by the Police and amazing, awesome bravery buy ordinary people who were there simply going about their business, going home for the weekend.

Sadly two innocent people will not be going home, but without such bravery, it could have been many more.

Default Thoughts with

My thoughts with all those people involved (except the murderer of course) The bravery of ordinary folk and our Police who attended is beyond what can be expected. It is very sad that two innocent people have lost their lives.

I am afraid we are not nearly tough enough in our sentencing of the idiots that follow murderous beliefs. He was convicted previously for terror related crime. He should not be out. The message should be that if you involve yourself in activities that threaten our safety you should be behind bars for many, many years. No matter how minor your involvement is. The aim of these people is murder. Murder of as many as they can in a totally indiscriminate manner. If you take part in any of this you should know that the punishment fits the crime.

I can't imagine how the families of those who have lost their lives now feel.
