Why was the London Bridge attacker released? - BBC News

  • Published on Dec 4, 2019
  • The family of London Bridge attacker Usman Khan have said they are "saddened and shocked" by what happened and "totally condemn his actions".
    Khan, who was convicted of a terrorism offence in 2012, killed Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, at a prisoner rehabilitation event on Friday.
    The BBC's legal correspondent Clive Coleman looks at why Khan was released from prison on licence in December 2018.

    The answer is simple. Hang convicted terrorists.
    The problem will disappear almost immediately.

    All these knee jerk unthinking idiots. What is the alternative to erring on the side of caution when taking away people's liberty or even life.
    Locking everyone up for life who might commit any offence? Or maybe just kill them?
    Then all the same idiots will be up in arms.
    Leave the thinking to those who can, and stop making them change the rules everytime you go ranting on social media.
    YOU are the readon the world is so fckd up.
    Build the best system you can and stick to it. Like we have over the past 1000 years.
    There are tweaks to be made, but cautiously, and with a thorough understanding of history.

    I think a more important question is, why isnt any of the parties campaigning to change laws to keep these middle east fascists locked up forever? We should all be asking why every politician is keeping silent on the matter. This is because the only campaign/manifesto promise on the table from every party in the election is everything you didn’t vote for!!!!

    "Satan stirreth them up, that he may lead their souls to destruction. And thus he has laid a cunning plan, thinking to destroy the work of God; but I will require this at their hands, and it shall turn to their shame and condemnation in the day of judgment. Yea, he stirreth up their hearts to anger against this work. Yea, he saith unto them: Deceive and lie in wait to catch, that ye may destroy; behold, this is no harm. And thus he flattereth them, and telleth them that it is no sin to lie that they may catch a man in a lie, that they may destroy him. And thus he flattereth them, and leadeth them along until he draggeth their souls down to hell; and thus he causeth them to catch themselves in their own snare. And thus he goeth up and down, to and fro in the earth, seeking to destroy the souls of men. Verily, verily, I say unto you, wo be unto him that lieth to deceive because he supposeth that another lieth to deceive, for such are not exempt from the justice of God."

    - Doctrine and Covenants 10:22-28

    Bullshit. He should have been sent out of the country the first offence. The UK is so ideologically handcuffed by fear of being called racist they import people like this with no proper vetting process. These people hate your country. They hate your culture. They only arrive because they want to out breed the locals. This is what makes hate crime laws pure evil.

    The European court of human rights has ruled "arbitrary and unlawful" the operation of indeterminate sentences for the protection of the public (IPPs), currently being served by more than 6,000 prisoners in England and Wales.
    The Strasbourg judges said the prison system was "swamped" by prisoners without fixed release dates after the indeterminate sentences were introduced in 2005. They said the three inmates who brought the case had "no realistic chance" of accessing the rehabilitation courses they need to qualify for release ??????

    To stop the Tories you need to vote tactically to keep them out. There's no point voting for Labour in a seat where only the LibDems can beat the Tories, and the opposite is obviously true, don't vote LibDem where Labour is the only party that can stop the Tory.
    In Scotland, they need to remove 12 Tory MPs. Check how your constituency voted here:

    The security services have been trying to place informers inside extremist cells in the UK since we started bankrolling them in Iraq after operation desert storm. They were not supposed to spill over into Europe but were intended to press the fight for destabilising the Caucuses and eventually Russia. Putin's policy of 'killing them all and letting god sort them out' created a blowback for European governments as their terrorist proxies now have no where to go except back to the countries who bankrolled them in the first place.
    Consequently our people are being stabbed, machine gunned and mown down with trucks on the streets of London, Paris and Berlin instead of the streets of Moscow as originally planned. And unfortunately for us it will likely get a lot worse.
