    Sounds like the rozzers are getting a handle on the this type of local terrorism - all credit to them.

    There was a team of them following him!

    So really their response was a bit slow as he managed to knife several over about a 50 metre distance. If someone was following him surely they should have been ready to intervene with lethal force instead of waiting for the armed backup.

    I suppose they were hoping he would take them to some terrorist cell or others he was on that path with, to warrant this type of close monitoring.

    Yes some religions are worse than others. If only god cleared all this up once and for all, they all accept there is only one god right. Mugs believe god is working for the good side. Good if you support evil.

    I hope the government proposals on this are not blocked by courts. People should have an opportunity to reform when possible but public safety should come first.

    We also need to avoid events that drive resentment against specific groups. Of course we should not blame an entire group for what a few do but that's human nature, better to work with it than ignore it. Locking up people like this for as long as necessary is a favour to Muslims in general.

    Well OK I mean the response of the police in a broader sense of the word. The fact that the police had a team monitoring him was clearly the correct thing to do, and shows the police are getting better at identifying the threats and being ready to neutralise them.

    They could have saved time by doing the 'pick up the gun' sketch outside prison rather than poncing about around the streets of London waiting for him to find some victims.
