Re: London Bridge armed incident

Yet again various foreign online news sources are showing Tower Bridge instead of London Bridge.

Too many confusing reports thus far.

I think we can be pretty sure which religion the malefactor adheres to.

Can we? Why not just wait for the facts, why do we have to guess? It serves no purpose in reality.

Re: London Bridge armed incident

Looks like 2no. Fatalities (not including the protagonist) unfortunately. Seems to have been some heroics by joe public.

Breaking Attacker was convicted of terrorist offence
Sources earlier told us the man who carried out today's attack was a former prisoner. We've now confirmed the man was convicted of a terrorist offence.
Link
Quote:
The attacker had links to Islamist terror groups, the security source added.
Quote:
The knife-wielding terrorist, who was wearing a fake suicide vest and has not been named, was killed on London Bridge on Friday afternoon in full view of horrified onlookers.
The attacker was a convicted terrorist who had served time in prison and was wearing an electronic tag, according to The Times newspaper. The paper added he was attending a Cambridge University conference on prisoner rehabilitation being held at Fishmongers' Hall and 'threatened to blow up' the building.

Yes because this society does actually try to live by rule of law.

Seeing the word “Islamic” in there, all we now need to add is the word “phobia” to see how misused the term is.

The law needs to be changed. People like this who pose an extreme risk to the public should never be released, and they should not be allowed to mix with prisoners who have not been radicalised.

For too long, we have been reducing sentences, and look where it has got us.

But it makes them feel good and gives them that air of superiority.
Any how the police have put an end to his wrong doing.

It was the police that shot and killed him,the public were very brave to tackle him but these idiots should always be shot dead to keep the rest of society safe.
