ACTING Deputy Commissioner and Head of Counter Terrorism has urged the public to feel reassured as London goes about its “normal business” today.
Mark Rowley insisted the capital would not allow terrorists to “sow discourse and fear”.
In a statement made outside Scotland Yard, Mr Rowley said more armed and unarmed police would be visible on the street.
He said: “As people are out and about today returning to the streets of the capital this morning, they will see more officers on duty armed and unarmed and a mix of metropolitan police, British transport and city of London.”
Two words come to mind ADC Rowley, Bull and Shit.
Anyone with eyes wide open knows it’s impossible to stop vehicles from being used indiscriminately as weapons without totally banning their presence.
Everyone knows that knives are in common use and carried by 8 to 80 year olds for self-defence let alone as offensive weapons. Without ‘random’ street stops, which will invoke cries of racist profiling, you just don’t stand a chance.
Armed or not, stab vest or not, a covert ‘ambush’ knife strike from close range is unstoppable.
This is 100% Pure Politically Motivated B.S.
Calm the sheeple, show pictures of armed cops, and quietly ignore the fact that London has thousands of roads and alleyways. The same for public access shopping, the metro has 249 miles of track, buses, schools. Need I go on.
Don’t mollycoodle ADC.
It reassures only the brain-dead sheeple.
Tell everyone to report anything suspicious, put plain clothes ARMED officers in key locations, and start rounding up the usual suspects.
Over 600,000 Muzzies live in London and Gawd knows how many other jihardists, radicals, and anarchist low life.
You’re going to need a football stadium or two and that’s just to hold the wet liberal-minded ‘hug a terrorist’ lot who come out of the woodwork at times like this.
You, at best, can deploy what 33,000 rank at best and approximately 2400 armed?
Against such numbers?
Do a France, call in the Army!
If there are any left not on deployment to guard against ‘Russian Aggression’.
Then it gets better.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has issued an open invitation to all Londoners and visitors to the capital to a candlelight vigil in Trafalgar Square from 6pm this evening.
Large public gathering, stretching police resources even more.
Nice one Squid. (Not).
