It should have never happened. And had the MI5 folks been able to sweep up the killer a while back, instead of trying to recruit him, that soldier on that particular day would be alive. That’s not saying another soldier would not have been attacked by another Muslim in another place, the French attack proves that.
However, once again the police being good at their job sweeping up the mess AFTER the crime is being exemplified in Britain.
A blood-soaked man identified as Adebolajo, who was still holding a number of weapons in his red-stained hands, then ranted on camera in a clear London accent saying: ‘You people will never be safe’ before telling a passer-by they had not fled because they were waiting to ‘shoot the police’.
Within 20 minutes armed officers arrived and the fundamentalists charged at them wielding firearms, knives and a machete.
Police opened fire, shooting six bullets, leaving one seriously injured. The pair remain under armed guard in two separate London hospitals.
Police today defended their response to the killing after eyewitnesses claimed they took up to 20 minutes to arrive at the scene.
Assistant Commissioner Simon Byrne, said: ‘One point I would like to address is around some of the speculation as to how long it took the Met to respond yesterday as this incident started to unfold.
‘We first received a 999 call from the public at 2.20pm stating a man was being attacked, further 999 calls stated that the attackers were in possession of a gun. We had officers at the scene within nine minutes of receiving that first 999 call.
‘Once that information about a gun or guns being present was known firearms officers were assigned at 2.24pm. Firearms officers were there and dealing with the incident 10 minutes after they were assigned, 14 minutes after the first call to the Met.’
Police were today seen outside a £365,000 detached house in a Lincolnshire village where they raided a home where Adebolajo is listed as having lived in the past.
The Lincolnshire property being searched by police is believed to belong to Adebolajo’s Nigerian-born father, Anthony Olumfemi Adebolajo.
But according to the Land Registry, the owner of the house is Joshua Anthony Olufemi Daniels, who bought it in 2002 for £218,000.
Neighbours said they knew the owner as Tony, an NHS nurse or nursing manager. It is thought the suspected killer’s father may have adopted the surname Daniels, although it is unclear why.
You see, when the bad guy comes and you dial 911 you can be assured you’ll be dealing with the bad guy for a while before the police show up, and in Britain it is a longer wait for the ARMED police to show up!
Remember, the police are in no way obligated to protect you. They are obligated by law to complete the best report possible within the scope of their authority and duty.
Worse, when the police have been corrupted by political correctness, their ability to actually get in front of violence BEFORE it attacks you is further degraded. In the real world, the killer here would be sitting in a prison for the past offense of trying to join a jihad or have been at least under continuous surveillance.
Neither occurred, the young soldier is dead and the police are running around making notes.
And that is the real world folks.
Update: Sweden is another example-
For the past week, immigrant youths rioted in Sweden. Riots that included the breaking of windows, rock-throwing at police, destruction of property and burning of cars. Swedish police tell the Associated Press that some 220 crimes were reported to them during the violent rampage.
But instead of cracking down on the perpetrators, authorities were busy issuing parking tickets on cars that were burned by the rioters. The conservative Swedish news site Fria Tider reports that owners of some cars destroyed in the riots were fined for parking illegally, while the Swedish police force described a low-key approach to the rioters themselves. Its reporter caught a parking enforcer in the act of issuing a ticket, and shot a photo, published above the headline “Parking Tickets Issued on Wrecks While Stockholm Burns.”….
….But while the Stockholm riots keep spreading and intensifying, Swedish police have adopted a tactic of non-interference. ”Our ambition is really to do as little as possible,” Stockholm Chief of Police Mats Lofving explained to the Swedish newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.
”We go to the crime scenes, but when we get there we stand and wait,” elaborated Lars Bystrom, the media relations officer of the Stockholm Police Department. ”If we see a burning car, we let it burn if there is no risk of the fire spreading to other cars or buildings nearby. By doing so we minimize the risk of having rocks thrown at us.”
Swedish parking laws, however, continue to be rigidly enforced despite the increasingly chaotic situation. Early Wednesday, while documenting the destruction after a night of rioting in the Stockholm suburb of Alby, a reporter from Fria Tider observed a parking enforcement officer writing a ticket for a burnt-out Ford.
When questioned, the officer explained that the ticket was issued because the vehicle lacked a tag showing its time of arrival. The fact that the vehicle had been effectively destroyed – its windshield smashed and the interior heavily damaged by fire – was irrelevant according to the meter maid, who asked Fria Tider’s photographer to destroy the photos he had taken. Her employer, the parking company P-service, refused to comment when Fria Tider contacted them on Wednesday afternoon.
You can’t make it up. Just can’t.
