Four dead in London terror attack

The Westminster attacker was British-born and known to the police and intelligence services, the prime minister has revealed.
In a statement to the Commons, Theresa May said he had been investigated some years ago over violent extremism but had been a "peripheral figure".
"He was not part of the current intelligence picture," she said.
Eight arrests have been made following the attack on Wednesday that left four dead.
Those that died are PC Keith Palmer, Aysha Frade who worked at a London college, a man in his 50s and the attacker.
Seven of the injured are still in hospital in a critical condition.
A further 29 had been treated in hospital, Mr Rowley added.
In the attack on Wednesday afternoon, a man drove a car along a pavement on Westminster Bridge knocking down pedestrians, creating panic and leaving dozens injured.
He then ran towards Parliament where he stabbed PC Palmer who was unarmed. Armed police then shot dead the attacker in the grounds.


Sympathies with the families of the dead and injured.

Theresa May pays tribute to PC Keith Palmer, who was stabbed to death in the attack, saying he "was every inch a hero"

PM: Attacker was British, known to the security services, but not "part of the current intelligence picture"

Another of the victims was Aysha Frade, a college worker, who died after being struck on Westminster Bridge

At least 40 others were injured - seven are in a critical condition

The attacker drove into people on Westminster Bridge before reaching the Houses of Parliament

Eight arrests have been made in raids by police

He said that months ago and has just been requoted. And I think he meant that in today's climate it is a reality that everyone must be aware of

Reading news.
Media has no balls say it's a Pakistani Muslim man. They say ASIAN to spread the blame. Not the first time.
U.K. always call perpetrators as ASIAN whenever they are Muslim terrorists

'Final photo' of killed PC Keith Palmer emerges

Taken by a tourist 45 minutes before his death, because she liked the smartness of his custodian helmet.

The story makes you feel pretty shit :(

Attacker's birth name was Adrian Russell Ajao. It seems he was a black guy who converted to Islam.

That's the intention, so don't let it, otherwise you're at a point where you're acquiescent to all kinds of manipulation.
A spy should know this.

A vulnerable member of society such as one suffering with mental health issues or social isolation, self radicalised over the internet in a dark room somewhere over many months, gets these ideas into their head and does whatever he's been planning, and then ISIS pipe up after and take the credit. Probable that no one from Isis ever spoke to him.

Services need to identify these people and intervene before the radicalisation. They are doing their best but how do you know what someone is doing alone in their bedroom somewhere? For every one person who does an act of terrorism there must be 100 other vulnerable people who fit the bill that he services find and help or keep an eye on. But thoughtspeak is not a crime and support only works to those who accept it.

Hard situation and possibly one that can never be fully solved.

Ha. Here FBI want to track people and "listen" to certain suspects activity but privacy groups and liberals got their undies in knots calling it racial profiling! ;) If they listen to my daily activities as I am foreign born American for the rest of my life, I am ok with that considering greater good it might bring, one rotten terrorist caught 3000+ innocent lives saved by prevention, yeh. Let my privacy go to dogs. Know my farting noise variations or pissing preferences of toilet seat up or not, get to know more, ask me if you got questions, I would demonstrate if needed.

Ultimately, If you are a good man, you should not have a problem on it. I have a problem with those that don't want to comply, may be they have something sinister to hide.

Yes. All terror deaths of innocents in India for 2 decades got ignored but now they are noticed as the west also saw the menace first hand.
