Given these swine are walking weapons, fully prepared to die, there is no negotiation. There is no ‘wounding with intent to apprehend’. There is only one way to deal with someone with a finger on the switch, especially when they’re in a crowded tube station.
The police officers concerned did the only thing they could.
As usual, the Muslim community is ‘alarmed’.
The Muslim Council of Britain said Muslims were concerned about a possible "shoot to kill" policy.Turn in the bloody terrorists, then, Inayat! There are those among you who know damned well who they are. They have their photos. The silence signals their complicity. But I’ll tell you what. I’ll make it simple for you. You want to know why they ‘unloaded’ five shots into this guy? Apart from the fact that he was running, and already a suspect, listen to a witness:
Spokesman Inayat Bunglawala said: "There may well be reasons why the police felt it necessary to unload five shots into the man and shoot him dead, but they need to make those reasons clear."
Another passenger on the train, Anthony Larkin, told BBC News the man appeared to be wearing a "bomb belt with wires coming out".Clear enough, Inayat? Or were they supposed to ask him nicely?
Of course, your objections fall on utterly deaf ears when we are faced with the certain knowledge of this:
Around a quarter of British Muslims have some sympathy with the motives of the London bombers, if not their methods, while a third believe Western society is "immoral", a poll said today.Just go.
Update: the appalling news that this man was not linked to the bombings is now starting to filter through. A tragic state of affairs, and an appalling congruence of events. As saddened as I am by this news, I do not resile from anything in this post. Under the circumstances, I do not believe the police had any choice but to do what they did. An attack was under way. They were trailing a man from a house that was under surveillance, because it was linked to the bombings, a man they believed was potentially carrying a bomb. At the entrance to the tube station, he ran when challenged, straight for a carriage-load of people. The outcome was a given, that is if the police were taking their jobs and their responsibility in any way seriously, which they were.
We are reaping the rewards of decades of insane (or malevolent) political correctness. Decades of encouraging immigrants to feel no loyalty to their newly adopted country, or worse, the country into which their children are born. Even worse still are those of us who have, in fact, taught them to hate this, our culture, and I refer specifically to the PC teaching left, who even now trash us in the schools, teaching their impressionable young charges that the West is responsible for most of the world's ills.
It has to stop. It has to stop now.
