British Soldier Brutally Murdered With A Machete Deemed Terrorist Attack

Today in Woolwich London two men savagely murdered a person believed to be a British soldier. The gruesome crime was carried out with a machete and a meat cleaver in broad daylight. Witnesses watched the horror unfold and recorded video and snapped pictures of the unimaginable tragedy. The Telegraph has updated coverage as the story continues to develop.

A witness describes the brutal murder and the selfless acts of two women who shielded the dead body from the savages.

The witness who spoke to LBC, called James, says there were “brave women” present who were shielding the victim at the scene.

He tells the radio station: “We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers. They were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s. They were hacking at this poor guy. We thought they were trying to remove organs from him.

“These two guys were crazed, they were not there, they were just animals. They then dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road.

“They took 20 minutes to arrive, the police – the armed response.

“There was only a few people at first, then traffic began to build up because people were getting out of their cars to shout at them. They were taking no notice, they were standing there, I think they were proud of what they were doing.

“When they dumped the body in the road, these two black guys had the opportunity to hurt other people if they wanted to because there were brave women with the dead guy on the floor. They were shielding and covering him. The attackers with the knives were standing over these women.”

Britain’s strict gun control law did not appear to deter the suspects as the crime is believed to have been carried out with a machete and meat clever. Witnesses also claim at least one suspect was carrying a gun. The gun does not appear to have been used in the attack.

This murder of a British soldier is being called a terrorist attack. The victim was said to be wearing a “Help for Heroes” t-shirt and appears to have been targeted by the suspects. Eye witnesses at the scene claimed the suspects were screaming, “Allahu Akbar” and in a video taken by a witness it is claimed the suspects said, “This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”

20 Minutes

It took 20 minutes for police to arrive with enough firepower to take down the two suspects. TWENTY MINUTES. We should all just be thankful they stopped with one person. They could have easily just hacked away at people until the armed police officer showed up.

I guess if you are in GB you can run your country the way you want but this is not an acceptable method for how I want a country I'm living in to run.


Enough firepower to stop two

Enough firepower to stop two guys with knives? I think 2-3 normal people with pepper spray or tasers could've done the same.

A sloppy staged event?

Some commentary to consider...

The bloody guy's speech is almost verbatim of the 7/7 bus

They've got a specific rigamarole they use in the UK, tailored to the remnant of the Soviet-sponsored left wing that developed there during the 60's. That sort of garbage didn't really take hold here the way it did there. We had some, they had loads, and some of them managed to indoctrinate fellow travelers along the way. Combine that with a sizeable Muslim minority (again, something we don't have here) and it adds up to a bunch of fringe nutcases who can enter their country with little to no scrutiny - with no other aim but to soak up benefits, and maybe one day kill some English for Allah.

I've no patience for religious fanatics of any sort, and the Muslims are the worst of the lot. The Christian far right in the USA is pretty terrible, but then compare them to Muslim moderates and you come away thinking "eh, we could have had worse." At least our religious fanatics pretend to like the rule of law.

Thank God guns are banned in

Thank God guns are banned in the UK, otherwise that poor man would have been shot to death instead of repeatedly cut and beheaded.

That so many people stand around watching and photographing and not trying to intervene. A machete and a meat cleaver? 5 people could rush them and disarm them in seconds.

At least they could have thrown stuff at them. Incredible.

I suppose the instinct for

I suppose the instinct for self-preservation is stronger. In addition, when people come across a bizarre or shocking scene, it's impossible to know how they will react. Years ago, I witnessed a man beating a woman senseless in a restaurant parking lot from my window seat on a public bus. As the bus passed by the horrific scene, not a single person said a word or yelled for the bus driver to stop to help the woman. I know it's terrible, but who can know the truth of a situation when one is an outsider unless informed? Weird and really terrible things happen all the time. All anyone really knows is what they are doing or thinking (and sometimes not even then).

You are correct

There is no way of preemptively knowing how you will react in a traumatic situation. Most people hope they would be heroes, but truthfully very few would. One would hope at least a couple on lookers out of the many who witnessed this would have tried to do something, but alas only two women stepped forward to shield the man's dead body. I think it's fair to say, in a horrific situation, that people would be more willing to fire a shot at a criminal from a distance, rather than run up and swing a club within a much closer proximity.

Guns, knives, bats...

Crazy is crazy. With less gun control a bystander may have been able to save the man, and those gun laws didn't seem to stop criminals from getting guns.

Maybe, maybe not. No one can

Maybe, maybe not. No one can say for certain what "would have happened".


Surprised the Brit cops had guns.
