You know, there might have been a way to prevent this

Sudesh Amman, 20, the terrorist who stabbed two people on a busy London street on Sunday was released halfway through his prison sentence

Can’t quite put my finger on exactly how……

  1. Letting them out so the security services can kill them is an expensive option, but I assume it’s been costed.

    Or we could skip the letting them out part of that…

  3. Getting bored of Muslim terror attacks, I’m waiting for the much touted Far Right terrorist threat to manifest itself………

  4. Jonathan The far right terrorist movement has already made its attacks. The evil bastards fought for democracy after democratically making the case to leave the EU.

    How in the hell can we have a socialist paradise with these bloody people promote freedom?

    This is a good piece about how Italy has, so far, avoided major terrorist attacks. Rather worryingly our police seem to ignore their warnings. It does go to the old trade-off between security and freedoms:

    Italian Muslims don’t make international headlines. Unlike most of its neighbors in Europe, Italy hasn’t seen a major terrorist attack in decades.

    On the other hand, Western Europe, stretching from the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Spain, has been attacked on several occasions and has had trouble dealing with radicalization from some segments of their Muslim communities.

    A large part of the reason Italy has avoided jihadist terrorism is because of its security apparatus, which is used to dealing with political terrorism and organized crime in the country. Other reasons include how Islam isn’t officially recognized as a religion in the country, so Italian Muslims are largely isolated in their faith, which means they largely live within their own communities. As a result, there is no forced attempt, neither by Italian society nor by Italian Muslims, for integration. Paradoxically, this has led to a less conflicted relationship, despite the less favorable views the majority Italian Catholic population has towards Muslims than other European countries.

    It would have delayed it at least.

  7. God gave us St Kilda and North Rona as places to house these shits.

    If they misbehave there they could be sent to Rockall.

  8. @JerryC: the mother came from Sri Lanka (where the father is now said to be).

    But this intrigued me: “Detectives discovered that the student had shared an al-Qaeda magazine in a family WhatsApp group. “

    One hopes the whole family is now under surveillance!

    Does anyone really think that if he’d served the full sentence, it would have done the trick?

    Nope. It’s the shooting them dead in the street as if they were rabid dogs part that does the trick.

  10. How has Italy avoided Muslim terror attack?

    The Mafia. If there is any terrorising to be done, they do it – and they don’t tolerate competition. I expect any Muslim not familiar with that concept is sleeping with the fishes.

  11. @JohnB: More like the Mafia deal with agressive muslims with extreme prejudice, period. Thraditional , given that a major part of their origin lies in armed gangs protecting Sicily and Sardinia of the not-so-gentle attention of the Corsair slavers well up into the 19th Century.

  12. I am liking the ‘shoot to kill’ policy that seems to be in operation for these attacks. Saves on a lot of court and prison costs.

  13. Released early to reduce Prison costs

    Then under close surveillance by three armed cops 24/7 (at least nine cops every day) – bet that costs more per day than prison

    News:

    Gov’t to rush through legislation to end early release of terrorists

    @John B, Grikath

    Similar deterrent in NI

    I’m told it’s an agreed standard policy when someone seems to be wearing a suicide waistcoat. Not just shoot to kill, but shoot to kill immediately, so they don’t have a chance to set it off. Been in place for a while, hence the Fishmongers’ Hall attacker being got as well.

  15. The radio said this evening that the mother claimed he had been “radicalised” in prison (and therefore implied it was the government’s fault, not hers).

    But wasn’t he in prison under terrorist legislation (for spreading ISIS propaganda?) – so is she saying that didn’t count as being radicalised, since the radicalisation only happened afterwards?

  16. BBC has”Clare Collier” claiming that the government will be breaking the law if it enacts legislation saying that Terrorist Criminals will actually serve the prison sentences already imposed on them!!!

    Some of us benighted souls think that is *enforcing* the law, not breaking it.

    One wonders if this might be why these characters wear the dummy vests: a swift execution being a better and more glorious outcome than the undoubtedly more arduous repetition of the thorough interrogation they underwent before being sentenced the first time.

  18. Yep the Human Rights brigade are already out in force complaining about the govt even thinking of doing anything.
    There’s a reason why we’ve never forbidden the use of retrospective laws, which is that occasionally (like this situation) you need to fix a serious fuck up.
    Still they are also talking about taking it to the Supreme Court so maybe another reason for Boris to sort them out sooner rather than later. Either way this is going to keep a lot of human rights laws well paid for a while, so it’s achieving its aim as far as they are concerned
