London Bridge attack suspect shot by British police after stabbing report

Recommended Posts

Maybe he had another weapon. He was all tangled up and wrestling with what may have been another officer on the ground.  Just before he was shot, a police officer grabs a guy and pulls him off the attacker and you can see the attacker almost has a lock on his legs as he’s pulled away.  Just a thought

Looks like they took the knife away, then shot him. :crazy:

It looks that way, and wow if that is a PO walking away with the perp's weapon, that is an awfully big and scary looking knife!

He was wearing a murder/suicide vest.

EDIT: Turned out to be a fake explosives device.

The Met Police have confirmed the suspect was wearing a 'hoax' device and have declared the incident to be a terror attack.

There's a video on this link showing bystanders fighting with the guy, then the cops come in. I'm not sure, listen for the shot and what the cops were doing. Maybe they were concerned about the  vest, but they backed off and shot him, instead of joining the bystanders to restrain him:

Let's try this again.   I wonder if the perp was islamic  extremist .:deadhorse:

You win!

....."The attacker shot dead on London Bridge was known to police and had connections to terror groups, according to reports.

According to The Times, the attacker was a convicted terrorist who had been released from prison after he agreed to be monitored by authorities. 

A security source told PA news agency he was known to police and had connections to Islamist terror groups."

Well, when you allow the common folk to have unfettered access to assault knives with evil features this is what happens ...

This is EXACTLY why we can't have bayonets on our AR15s......Someone could get stabbed!

Can only imagine the poor, socio-economic conditions that that knife was in before it decided to go on a rampage.   More missionary work afoot. 

Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims.

And it turns out the suspect just got out of jail on a terrorism conviction. Great idea just letting his back to roam the city!

Even worse... is this really any different than what happens here? Like the gangbanger who shot up that all-night fair in Trenton... who, as it turns out, had been released from prison early for his "good behavior"? Can you imagine when all of these "progressive" states like California and New York finally get their wish fulfilled and the maximum number of prisoners have been de-institutionalized and put back on the street? I really hope that when all these murderers, rapists and pedophiles strike again (and many will, of course) that the new victims and their surviving families are able to sue state governments back into the stone age.

Activists just kill me. We're at 30-year lows on the worst kind of violence. So, what's the brilliant plan?... release record numbers of prisoners from jails and prisons and flood them back onto the streets. Oh, the epic stupidity!
