Trial Update: Murderers of Lee Rigby searched for British soldier to kill

Trial Update: Murderers of Lee Rigby searched for British soldier to kill

The machete murder of British soldier Lee Rigby on the open street by Islamic terrorists garnered widespread media attention in the U.S. at the time.

Leslie wrote about the case last May, My Memorial Day Tribute to Self Defense, and we featured British newspaper front pages:

The ongoing trial of the murderers, however, has not received much attention in the U.S. media.  Here are some updates from British media.

From The Telegraph, Lee Rigby killers drove around Woolwich barracks looking for soldiers to kill, court hears:

Soldier Lee Rigby’s killers drove around his Woolwich barracks for up to an hour looking for soldiers to kill before they targeted him, the Old Bailey heard.

The blue Vauxhall Tigra Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were in was captured on CCTV driving up and down Artillery Place from 1.30pm.

The Fusilier was murdered around 2.30pm on May 22.

The court heard the pair even bought a parking ticket half an hour before the killing and a copy of the £1 ticket, which was due to expire at 2.53pm, was shown to the jury.

But by that time the car had crashed into a road sign after being used as a weapon to mow Mr Rigby down.

The 25-year-old was then hacked to death with knives and a meat cleaver so viciously he was almost decapitated before his lifeless body was dragged into the middle of the road.

From the BBC, Lee Rigby trial: Man pleaded ‘do not kill’ soldier

The court heard from a number of witnesses during the afternoon, who also gave details of the knife attack on Fusilier Rigby.

Gill Hucks said in her statement that she had been “shaking and very upset” at what she had witnessed.

She said she had seen one of the accused men “playing to the cameras” in the aftermath of the attack.

That view was echoed by Cheralee Armstrong, who told the court one of the accused men – who the prosecution say was Mr Adebolajo – had been “almost showing off” following the attack.

These fellows should have been shown a taste of jailhouse justice. Summary execution has its place.

Put them in solitary, and feed’em nothing but pork for the rest of their lives.

“Lee Rigby trial: Man pleaded ‘do not kill’ soldier”

If he was armed, he could have done more than “plead”.

These cowards would very likely have broken off their murder if confronted by someone prepared to stop them.

This is yet another reason why it was so wrong of the Brit’s, or anyone else for that matter, to disarm themselves. Also, because of them allowing islamic terrorists (there’s no other kind) to immigrate to their country, they’re all sitting ducks now.

Ah, diversity. The gruesome end of immigration which exceeds the rate of assimilation. Of course, it does not help that the interests which invited them, also nurtured their prejudice against the native population.

On a busy street, not one person with a gun able to help…

Speaking of which, see Breitbart, and Allen West’s newsletter today. First the federal government suspiciously bought up ammunition. Now the EPA is making life miserable for lead smelters.

Scumbags ought to be put down on sight like zombies, for that’s what they are.

Actually they ran him over first . This can happen whether citizens are armed or not . Cars can be a deadly weapon – it just a matter of intent.

These things were not Muslim imports . At least one if not both were from practicing Christian families.

Simply put it does not do much for Africans in Britain& many stereotypes will be kept alive.particularly that these 2 are fc kin dumb.
