I think a far bigger question is, how come this took place yards from a military compound WITH firearms, did none of THEM react
and why when the secret service had them on watch for eight years, did they get as far as they did....alot of the anti-terrorism secret service branches are armed...at least...so we are led to believe...noone really knows
The Killers were not aprehended
by police...They WAITED for the police to arrive...they could have gotten away, but chose to make youtube videos explaining why they did it instead
I am suprised that Rigby wasnt armed...Military peeps are encouraged to wear their uniforms in public now, and I know the Ministry of Defence Police (who arent even technically speaking military, but Civil Service) constantly walk around Harrogate with firearms on show...I mean, they carry them into the Store to do shopping with them
Its most disconcerting...and you see people giving them a wide birth
I am still not sure, technically speaking, its legal for them to do it...but its not something one can bring up in friendly conversation with them really is it
Although...this afternoon, I thought about Liddellfan, when I had to sign my allotment aggreement...unbelievably, one of the stipulations, is an aggreement NOT to hunt pest (Birds, Mice, Rats, Moles) that drift over from the Gorge next door...using either "an air rifle or a shotgun"
A shotgun WTF
