Parsons Green: Man arrested over Tube bombing

An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences in connection with Friday’s attack on a London Tube.

The man was detained in the port area of Dover on Saturday by Kent Police and is being held at a local station.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said the arrest was “significant”, but the terror threat level remains at “critical”.

    On his way to Molenbeek?

    And his name is… ? Taking bets on Mohammed, Mohamed, Moohammed, Mahmad, Mahamed, and other bastardized mispellings of the name.

      That’s just his first name. Wait until you get to his middle and last names of moohamid.

      For all her bombast, Ann Coulter’s law seems to perfectly apply here. “The longer that it takes the media to identify the shooter the less likely he is white and Christian.”

    Keeping up with the latest nomenclature:
    Independent defence analyst Andy Oppenheimer told BBC News that experts were no longer calling people carrying out these attacks “lone wolves”, but now referring to them as “self-starter cells”.

      Those “self starter cells” are usually found in a laboratory,in a Petri dish, growing some bacteria,virus or other bad cells like cancer. This is not much different. It’s actually a pretty good use of the title.

    18, that’s a child, right? No harm no foul. Don’t do it again, little boy

    Some “kids” like making clocks, others play with chemistry sets on the tube. C’mon, could happen to anyone.

    Police raid house in Sunbury, Surrey in follow-up to Parsons Green attack.

    Undoubtedly, his imam & family will come out and say they had no idea the “boy” was radicalised. He is a good kid. Imam may even say the boy hasn’t been going to the mosque for quite awhile (Imam doesn’t want any investigations there!)

    Narrative will then turn to the boy has shown signs of mental illness and needs treatment.

    Meanwhile PM May spends more time bashing Pres. Trump’s tweet then castigating the Islamic ideology/Muslim fundamentalists that has/have turned a once peaceful England into a radical Islamist madhouse.
