Default London terrorist attack

So, this week was the London Bridge / Fishmongers Hall attack. Two young graduates dead. Awful.

Here's a clear explanation of how the terrorist was subdued. Definitely some brave folk out there.

Very brave indeed.

Two young lives taken far too early.

And in such bitter irony, in that they were working to enable prisoner rehabilitation AT a prisoner rehabilitation seminar.

I still don't know how this guy got into the building with long knives.

Its a mystery to me too because he was one of the ex-prisoners being helped on that course . He had been serving 16 yrs for being part of a terrorist group. .Released under a new ruling.Had an ankle bracelet on. and was with this support group.
This beggars belief and makes me think something else must having been going on. He had 'begged' police and others to help him become de-radicalised Some reports say they refused.? He sounds to have been a very disturbed ( mentally ) young man who had been allowed out and back on the streets. The question is...why now?

Of course our dear politicians are making hay out of these avoidable tragic deaths The Conservatives blaming Labour for a decision they all agreed to in the early 2.000's

Yes, possibly mentally ill or highly radicalised. Asking for de-radicalisation does mean he is not actually radical. Pleased he was shot. We don't need to waste further funds on him.

Should have been shot ( had his neck stretched ) shortly after his first guilty verdict.

He didn't kill anyone the first time, so maybe not.

Yes.

I am disgusted that any politician would seek to capitalise on these un-necessary deaths of two well meaning young people. Dreadful waste of life and a lifetime of grief for their family and friends.

I know, such a tragedy for the young man and woman and their familes too. It's hard to understand why he would choose to attack there, unless, somehow he had some personal connection to the event and/or it was an opportunity. He drove there from Staffordshire, so he certainly had time to think about it and plan it. It's fortunate we don't have guns in this country or you can imagine the carnage would be that much worse.
