Speaking in Paris alongside Francois Hollande, the French president, David Cameron says Britain has faced terror attacks such as the one in Woolwich before and adds: “We will never buckle in the face of it.”
The Telegraph is doing a brilliant job of moment by moment coverage of the horrific incident. Keep tuned to that link- the latest news is on the top of the page with older entries as you scroll down.
Again, such barbarity is utterly unspeakable. Inhuman really. To butcher a man as one would an animal makes the one who does it less than an animal.
Armed police called to the scene near the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, London, shot and injured two suspects. Woolwich and Greenwich MP Nick Raynsford said both were in a serious condition in hospital. One witness, identified as James, said he and his partner saw two black men attack the young man with kitchen knives like he was “a piece of meat”. “They were hacking at this poor guy, literally,” he told LBC. “They were hacking at him, chopping him, cutting him.
Fighting back tears, he added: “These two guys were crazed. They were just animals. “They dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road and left his body there.” He said that after the “horrendous” attack, the two men, in their 20s, just stood around, waving knives and a gun, even asking people nearby to take pictures of them “as if they wanted to be on TV or something”. “They were oblivious to anything, they were more worried about having their photo taken, running up and down the road,” he said. “They had no intention of running off or leaving or anything.
The supposition in Britain is that the perpetrators are Muslim and that their act was religiously motivated. If so, Islamic leaders across the civilized world need to denounce it in no uncertain terms. Silence is acceptance. And silence in the face of evil is itself evil.
I hope one and all will pray for this guy’s family and friends. I suspect they will need all the help they can get- especially of the divine sort.
A British father who was allowed to spend time with his two children for the first time since an acrimonious divorce today admitted slitting their throats, according to French media reports. Agence France-Presse, France’s national news agency, reported that the man had confessed to the double murder in Lyon on Saturday while being questioned with a lawyer in a police station. The reports have not been verified. His former wife had handed over their 10-year-old son and daughter, aged five, on Friday evening, and they spent a night in the old family home in Saint-Priest, around three miles from the city centre.
Evil. Pure, unmixed, unspeakable evil.
The man, aged 48, was allegedly a heavy drinker, who had been violent towards his wife before their divorce up to three years ago.
A heavy drinker (because that’s an excuse)…
When the mother, an accountant’s assistant also in her forties, returned to pick up the children from the second floor apartment at around 5pm on Saturday she saw the father looking panicked. “He was in the stairwell of the block, and his clothes were covered in blood,’ said a neighbour. “He made off on a pair of roller-skates.”
People… tell me again how they’re ‘evolving’.
Need proof that higher ed is nothing more than big business? How about the fact that American Colleges and Universities treat their faculty like employees and their President’s like corporate CEO’s. No longer is it about education- it’s about money. And American Colleges and Universities may mock pay for schools like Phoenix College and ITT Tech, but they are all exactly the same: for profit institutions concerned with that and not educating students.
On GMA this morning the top story? Not Syria. Powerball. America. This is who you have become. Money is the god you worship. Compassion is replaced with greed and false hope.
What a moron. What. A. Moron. What an evil moron.
Instead if giving Biblical advice on adultery (grounds for divorce), Robertson told the wife to stop “talking about the cheating. he cheated on you, Well, okay, he’s a man,”
“What you do is start to focus on why you married him in the first place on what he does good. Does he provide a home for you to live in, does he provide food for you to eat, does he provide clothes for you to wear, is he nice to the children, do you have a happy family? Start focusing on those things and essentially fall in love with him again,” advised Robertson.
Robertson also lectured the wife to “give him honor instead of trying to worry about it. But recognize also, like it or not, males have a tendency to wander a little bit and what you want to do is make a home so wonderful that he doesn’t want to wander.”
What a vile and wicked moron. Pat isn’t just a jerk, he’s a deceiving jerk. He’s a false teacher. He’s a heretic.
I know there are depraved people. Obviously. But stories like this surprise even me. And that takes some doing.
They are 1 percenters who are 100 percent despicable. Some wealthy Manhattan moms have figured out a way to cut the long lines at Disney World — by hiring disabled people to pose as family members so they and their kids can jump to the front, The Post has learned. The “black-market Disney guides” run $130 an hour, or $1,040 for an eight-hour day. “My daughter waited one minute to get on ‘It’s a Small World’ — the other kids had to wait 2 1/2 hours,” crowed one mom, who hired a disabled guide through Dream Tours Florida.
Worst of all? It’s not a story in The Onion.
Passing around the rogue guide service’s phone number recently became a shameless ritual among Manhattan’s private-school set during spring break. The service asks who referred you before they even take your call. “It’s insider knowledge that very few have and share carefully,” said social anthropologist Dr. Wednesday Martin, who caught wind of the underground network while doing research for her upcoming book “Primates of Park Avenue.” “Who wants a speed pass when you can use your black-market handicapped guide to circumvent the lines all together?” she said. “So when you’re doing it, you’re affirming that you are one of the privileged insiders who has and shares this information.”
Yup- there are totally depraved souls and then there are these people- in a league of depravity all their own. Via Francis Deblauwe on FB.
Where is the source of this kind of brutality to be found save in the putrid maw of infernal wickedness?
The mother of an 8-year-old girl who was found stabbed to death in her Northern California home and of the 12-year-old boy accused of killing her says the boy is “protective of his sister.”
‘Protective’? Someone dosn’t know what that word means.
In an interview with Sacramento television station KOVR on Friday (http://cbsloc.al/10M1RoI ), Priscilla Rodriquez said her son “could never hurt his sister.” Calaveras County Sheriff Gary Kuntz said Saturday that the boy would be charged with homicide. His arrest comes after Leila Fowler was attacked April 27 in the Valley Springs home where she and her brother lived with their dad. The boy had told police that he found his sister’s body and encountered an intruder in the home while their parents were at a Little League game.
12 years old and he’s a murderer. There is evil afoot.
The lead singer of Christian heavy metal band “As I Lay Dying” tried to hire a hit man to kill his estranged wife, authorities said. Grammy-nominated rocker Tim Lambesis, 32, was arrested in a sting operation 2 p.m. Tuesday in Oceanside, Southern California. Authorities said they sprang into action after hearing Thursday how he wanted someone to murder Meggan Lambesis — the mother of his three adopted children.
Good grief. Another ‘Christian’ acting worse than the average angry atheist.
[NB- 'Christian Rock' is an oxymoron. It isn't Christian, it isn't rock. It's rubbish. Just like Jazz. And JZ.][NB- This concludes my remarks on what is supposed to pass for music but is nothing but senseless trash]. [Music? Not even remotely]. [Perhaps all that head banging loosened the guys noggin and his brain took a beating rendering him witless].
… Mike Jeffries said he “doesn’t want larger people shopping in his store. He wants thin and beautiful people. He doesn’t want his core customers to see people who aren’t as hot as them wearing his clothing. People who wear his clothing should feel like they’re one of the ‘cool kids.’”
I’ve got news for Mr Jeffries- cool people don’t wear A&F. The only people who do are the ones utterly obsessed with mere image; insubstantial ‘frat boys’ and girls who care more about their hair style and shoes than decency and intelligence.
He said, “A lot of people don’t belong (in our clothes), and they can’t belong. Are we exclusionary? Absolutely.”
I hope people are smart enough to exclude Mr Jeffries’ company from their shopping experience. If they aren’t, they are just as reprehensible as he is.
