The London Bridge knifeman was formerly imprisoned for terrorism

The attacker, named by police as 28-year old Usman Khan, was out of prison on license when. on Friday, he stabbed to death a man and a woman and injured three others on London Bridge. Police shot him dead after he was restrained by members of the public. On Saturday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and police chiefs criticized the court which last year confirmed the convicted terrorist’s release from prison after he agreed to wear an electronic tag, have his movements monitored and attend a Learning Together criminal justice conference seminar for re-education near London Bridge. The police were not alerted when he left the room and embarked on his stabbing rampage nearby.

Usman Khan was convicted in 2012 after pleading guilty to preparing acts of terrorism as a member of an al-Qaeda inspired terrorist cell of eight men. Their target list included the London Stock Exchange, the American embassy, the addresses of two rabbis and the home of Boris Johnson, then Mayor of London. They also planned to set up a terrorist training camp on land owned by Khan’s family in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir.

      @Adam – some disgusting fiends took the basic message of that religion which is the same as the others and twisted it to fit their twisted and diseased brains and then turned their kids into themselves

        Word of advice. Read the Koran instead of parrotting what you have been told.

        There is no similarity at all between islam and the others.

          Islam is simple, it says “by any means” and “infidel must die”.
          Hey, only 6 words!

    From the Debka article:

    “———————-court which last year confirmed the convicted terrorist’s release from prison after he agreed to wear an electronic tag, have his movements monitored and attend a Learning Together criminal justice conference seminar for re-education near London Bridge.”

    That’s about as naive as one can get.
    One less Jeremy Corbryn supporter out there as a result of this.

        @frank. And you evidently think you have all objectivity. Your arrogance is astonishing.

    A country must have minimum 1 or 2 small guantanamos.
    Re-education for terrorism might work, but only after a minimum 10 to 20 years inside.

    It was insane to release him. 18 years was not enough. Shooting him was the only solution.

    Better yet, to all Muslims, convert to Christianity…Jesus went to the Cross for you, did Muhammad do that?

        It is not a fairy tale Vivian. By not reading through what actually happened you are taking your life in your hands and shutting yourself off from your salvation. Your method of expression signifies you have merely imbibed the utterances of the lost and uninformed and indoctrinated. Do some reading and thinking for yourself.

          Lev,
          You’re the one who sounds indoctrinated. You speak in parables and use religions jargon as if you actually know what you’re talking about. Religion is the indisputable proof that when you repeat lies and fiction often enough, people actually believe it. And they will do anything to support this fiction… Over 3500 religions in the world at the moment and not a single fact. 90% of all religions invented in the history of mankind have gone extinct.
