    London Bridge attack: Police shot dead knife terrorist just 5 minutes after 999 call

    Quick-acting police officers shot dead a knife-wielding terrorist who stabbed two people to death just five minutes after receiving a 999 call.

    The man was tackled to the ground by brave members of the public

    The knifeman, strapped into a fake suicide vest, was restrained by members of the public before being taken out by heroic armed police.

    Speaking to the press at 8.15pm this evening, the head of the Metropolitan Police Cressida Dick gave a brief time-line for the dramatic events that took place on London Bridge this afternoon.

    The police were called at 1.58pm to reports of a man wearing an explosive device in Fishmongers' Hall on the northern bank of The Thames.

    Within five minutes at 2.03pm armed officers had fired the fatal shots.

    The killer was a convicted Terrorist who was out of gaol on licence.
    They release them into the community again and wonder why they kill again
    Bring back the Death Penalty for Terrorism

    Not criticizing the police for shooting the bastward , better that than feeding the **** for the next 60 years, but the pictures I saw were of a man walking away with the knife he had taken off the killer, they then said the police stepped away and shot him, only thing I can say is they must have seen his vest and took no chances. People don't want to think that these idiots are finished because the were beaten in Syria, we have just had three of them put away for 20 years for plotting a bomb attack in Melbourne.

    It is now a fact of life that these low lives will be amongst us in some form or another for ever I fear.

    This attack is a bit like the one on the bridge couple of years ago.
    Large crowds all jostling around, ideal spot to commit some terror.

    The only way to deal with them is the manner in which to police acted, body vest or not, just waste them.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Ita good job that our armed police are not gung ho, the guy seen running away with the confiscated knife would have been dead in America. How a convicted terrorist can be let out onto our streets again is a crime by some one in prison reform system, and they should be severely investigated. Once convicted of terrorism, they should never be free, i agree, bring back the death penalty for that crime, kt

    When they are dead the only way to stop them going to paradise is to bury them in pig manure. that is the only thing that scares them.

    Thankfully as you say as apparently the man seen running with knife from attacker was plain-clothed officer.

    I watched a program some time ago about Kurdish fighters. It seems that these terrorists are afraid of being killed by the Kurdish women fighters. That's why those ladies make a special type of noise when in battle so that those guys know who is opposing them......quite interesting.

    We were in London a couple of years ago when the first bridge attack took place.
    Couple of days later down by the Houses of parliament and got talking with a couple of local police, both well armed.
    spoke about our police here in Oz, all carry side arms, only specials in UK do so.
    Asked if they had ever used the guns and what would they do in an incident such as the bridge one.

    'We would shoot to kill, then take them in for questioning' said one.

    'Yes' said the other but doubt they would have much to say!
    Happy daze John in Oz.
