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
Yes, they stayed and waited for the police, then charged them, that's when they were shot. I really think they probably wanted to be killed so they could be seen as martyrs. Unfortunately, they are still breathing and poor Lee Rigby is dead.

I felt like Liddellfan was doing to you what he was accusing you of. And honestly, would you have come on two American tours if you were anti-American...that is unless you were a terrorist!
