The 21-year-old suspect was detained in Hounslow, west London, last night by detectives from the Met Police’s Counter Terrorism Command.

    Neighbours claim terror police have recovered ’15 firearms and a bomb’ from a Surrey house raided yesterday in connection with the attack.

    Not knowing how the anti terrorist officials go about their work I find it interesting that, after an attack where innocent people are badly injured and/ or are murdered, these officials somehow are able to find and arrest the thugs responsible.

    Is it through informants who make sure the attacks have been completed BEFORE coming forward or are those involved already known by police and are allowed to go about their business and plan their attacks?

    Something is not right. In so many cases in Paris, London and various locations in the United States, the thugs responsible have been identified as “possible” threats and yet not taken off the streets and deported. Or, in a better case scenario, made to “disappear.”

    Is it It’s political correctness gone mad or is it something else………

      The UK government does not want to take the sensible first step of putting more than 3000 known radicals into internment camps. Too sensitive politically. There are just too many to keep under surveillance.

    They were known to police. The 18 year old was questioned about terror 2 weeks ago and released. They suspected he was a threat but released him.

    See how efficient the English language can be?

    “The police arrested a 21 year old man” is short for for “The police arrested a 21 year old Muslim male of the middle eastern or north African origin who repeatedly threatened violence, was investigated but ignored and who screamed allahu akbar before, during or after his murders / attempted murders.”

    Of course, our efficiency will kill us.
