    Was the British Soldier Shot Prior to Being Hacked?

    A few more details are emerging about the attackers, and the incident. A gun was mentioned twice in this story. I wonder why the handgun isn't receiving more attention:
    http://news.yahoo.com/british-soldie...060253278.html

    "Witnesses said they shouted "Allahu akbar" - Arabic for God is greatest - while stabbing the victim and trying to behead him. A handgun was found at the scene."

    "Fred Oyat, a 44-year-old local resident, said he witnessed the attack on the soldier from the window of his high-rise apartment overlooking the scene.
    'The victim was white,' he told Reuters. "I was in my house when four shots rung out. I went to the window I saw a man lying on the ground with a lot of blood.' "

    But, but, you can't have a gun in England, how can this happen? Thought everyone would be safe if no one was allowed guns?

    ^^^ Yep! They couldn't have used the gun, since that would have been illegal.

    Heard on the news this morning that witnesses stated they hit the British soldier with their car first to get the advantage. Whilst he was on the ground was when they attacked him. Indeed a cowardly attack perpetrated by a group of useless, despicable, evil, cowards that deserve the "long drop and a short stop" of a gallows.

    According to one news source he was run down with a car, then hacked to death. Given the state of the media these days, make of that what you will!

    True, and according to one witness, four shots were heard somewhere in that process, and one of the suspects was found with a handgun.

    Does it matter?

    All of the responsible parties should be hunted down and executed.
    Their should have their heads removed and burnt to ashes and their bodies sprinkled with hog blood.

    Maybe then that crap would cease.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    It appears the police already knew the murderers.

    Britain: Soldier slaying suspects had been probed

    LONDON (AP) — Two men accused of butchering a British soldier had featured in previous investigations by security services, a British official said Thursday, as investigators searched several locations and tried to determine whether the men were part of a wider plot to instill terror on the streets of London.

    The men, suspected of hacking the off-duty soldier to death while horrified bystanders watched, boasted of their exploits and warned of more violence in images recorded on witnesses' mobile phones. Holding bloody knives and a meat cleaver, they waited for the arrival of police, who shot them in the legs, according to a passerby who tried to save the dying soldier.

    Disgusting. Not only was the victim helpless but the witnesses were helpless as well. These are self radicalized, most likely Shi'ite,who get them self involved in lesser jihad are some of the stupidest people on the planet. The world would be a better place with out them. period. This frustrates me beyond belief that Brits have no way to protect themselves and their fellow man as civilians. Wrap these guys in bacon and Toss them to the wolves.

    30 minute response time. Good thing they didn't have a desire to do more damage, because they obviously could have.

    And there's no way they had a handgun. Those are illegal in the UK, dontchaknow.

    I doubt it. But it'd be a good first step, to treat all such heinous violence suitably harshly. Injection doesn't seem to deter any such folks. Standard Shariat beheading, or a noose, would be fine. We've got plenty of gators that need feeding. Landfill friendly, too.

    Then there is always this....the Brit's at one point strapped them to cannons that were greased with pig fat and then let'em rip.....(literally). It happened in 1857 and is a true historical event. So this is for historical reference.
