Terrifying News Story Of The Day-From The London Evening Standard: ‘Man Butchered By ‘Terror’ Pair’

Full piece here.

‘Terrorism returned to the streets of London as two suspected Muslim fanatics butchered a man in broad daylight in the name of “Allah”.’

The details are grisly, and the openness of the crime chilling.  A possibly British soldier, off-base, was savagely murdered in the middle of the street for all to see.  The perpetrators then waited 20 minutes for an armed police response and were shot, then taken into custody.

One of the attackers, bloodied, relatively calm considering his actions, machete in hand with his victim’s body in the street behind him, explains that such actions were justified.  He just wants to live in peace, you see.

Addition:  And now the EDL (English Defense League) has amassed in the streets.  The Daily Mail has more.

The victim was first run down by the attacker’s car, possibly for no more than wearing a “Help For Heroes” T-shirt while returning to base, then while injured, they murdered him with knives and a machete and waited for the police to arrive.

More on the victim, Lee Rigby, here.
