Suspected Killer ‘Mental Health Problems’

    ok why is it that witnesses say she was shot while breaking up a fight between two men, but the other two witnesses who are muslim claim he yelled britian 1st?

    • More to come as they say.

      • RAMA44

        Several eye/ear witnesses said they never heard the “Britain First” Comment. Sounds like a replay of Omer’s dad and the “Two men Kissing” BS .Never let a crisis go to waste!

        • Yup also reminds me of the recent killing of the Ahmadiyya guy by a Sunni Muslim the papers were salivating that the perp was a white male.

          I suspect this guy may be a leftist in fact.

          The media will play up the “Britain first!” shout allegation as long as they can, and then it will switch to blame on a more nebulous ‘Britain first sentiment’ thoughtcrime. Like how Trump ‘inspires’ everything bad during this election cycle.

    • Miss Trixie

      I caught that too. It stinks.

  • Jaedo Drax

    Aamir Tahir, of The Dry Clean Centre, said the gunman was heard shouting ‘Britain first’.
    He said: ‘The lady I work with heard two loud bangs. I wish I was there because I would have tried to stop him.
    ‘Apparently the guy who did it shouted ‘Britain first’ and if I had been there I would have tackled him.’

    So they pull a quote out of a guy who wasn’t there that the attacker shouted “Britain First” and just ran with it.

    • So far that seems to be the case.

      • Miss Trixie

        I f****** hate the media.

    • Jaedo Drax

      SO far, the information on the telegraph has this guy saying he wasn’t there, and was stuck in traffic, but was a witness?

    ‘makeshift gun’ ?

    ban steel pipe , files , drills

    • V10_Rob

      Knifes are already banned too, I believe.

      Failure of a plan does not indicate any flaw in the plan.

  • ed

    she has just died 1710 gmt , attacker tommy mair in his 60s no shouts of britian first he remained silent throughout the attack , [ police still won`t confirm silence of attacker ??????? even though true ]

  • A 53-year-old – named locally as Tommy Mair from Batley – has been arrested

  • Daviddowntown

    She died.

  • Jaedo Drax

    A local paper reported at the time that Mair said volunteering at the
    park had “done him more good than all the physiotherapy and medication
    in the world”.

  • ed

      • RAMA44
