Thread: London Bridge terror attack

  1. #1

    Default London Bridge terror attack

    5 casualties, suspect in custody though a video has gone viral online that looks like him being shot dead, maybe tasered? Reports of explosives, nearby Borough Market has been evacuated.

    Hope there's no follow ups and any injuries can be recovered from. Hope everyone here in London is OK.

    One confirmed fatality, not confirmed yet if that's a suspect or victim.

    Now confirming the attacker was shot and killed and this is officially being treated as a terrorist incident. "A number of people injured", the attacker had a knife (looks like a machete) and it looks from video like bystanders tackled and disarmed the suspect before the Police arrived. Incredibly brave people!

    Police shot dead the suspect due to a hoax suicide vest.

    Very sad that two innocent people lost their lives. Good on the bystanders for quickly springing into action - those are some real damn heroes! Also very glad the terrorist POS is dead.

    Did you notice most of the bystanders were convicted felons (including a murderer), some still on parole?
    Hope is the denial of reality

    Nope - and to be frank it doesn't matter. I don't need to know someone's history to determine if an act is heroic or not.

    As was the terrorist. A convicted terrorist automatically released without even having a parole board review his case; although the law was changed to require the parole board reviews similar cases in future back in 2012 the law wasn't changed retrospective and as his crime and conviction was before then he got released under the old laws.

    Completely missing the point that by your own previous moronic posts these heroes shouldn't have been allowed in public to begin with.

    Agreed. Although also by his views the heroes wouldn't have had anything to contront here.

    I'm glad the heroes were freed and hopefully they can all continue to be upstanding citizens. Hopefully terrorists who haven't reformed can be kept inside in the future.

    It is a game of percentages. Lottery is a bad idea for people to play but some random yahoo is still going to say "nah no it isn't I won after all!"
