Another day, another horrific public attack, this one made for TV…
Details are still speculative at this stage as to who was the victim and who were the assailants reported to have been shot dead by the police, but the event has already been defined across the national/world media as two “muslim anti-government” attackers killing an “off duty British soldier”.
Oddly, media reports say that the men were shot dead, while Police statement says that the men are being treated for their injuries at separate hospitals. Which is it? If they are dead, then sadly, police will not be able to question the men believed to have killed the victim so as to learn more about what actually happened - and why.
This should not be classed as a “national security” event, as it appears to be only a violent crime – but it’s one of the strangest ones ever, spun with an Islamic twist, and where the perps (breathtakingly) are demanding to be filmed and then hang around for police to arrive? Something does not add up.
Whether this is either a real or staged event, rather than be seen as an isolated incident, this incident will – without a doubt, be defined as a ‘disturbing trend’ with the interim details being filled in by the tabloid press, and will be used to bolster any existing domestic security provisions and strengthen police powers of pre-emptive detainment and arrest under national security clauses. The danger is that it will be used to introduce an entirely new set of state powers to be dropped on top of an already bloated security state in Britain.
Video #1 (ITN):
Video #2 - News footage…
Now bear in mind also that this could be viewed as the most staged media-friendly attack ever, it’s almost humorous that the attacker appears to have red paint on his hands – but amazingly no blood at all on his clothing, nor is there any blood around the victim – so skeptics will say that’s actually impossible. Decide for yourself…
And here’s the same man ranting, but with no blood on his hands, is this “take one”? Why has the video released by ITN, the Guardian and others have red hands? Very odd, it’s either a different take, or whoever handled the video for the UK media has later added the red hands for effect – NOTE: These two videos (#1 and #4) were shot from two different cameras, and it appears that one of these videos has been altered…
If the assailants had run over the man first with their vehicle before setting upon him it’s doubtful at best that they would have known he was an off duty soldier – which would make the event a coincidence according to the parameters laid out in the official story. So the premeditated political targeting of a soldier as a talking point does not add at all.
In fact, beyond the random spectacle narrative, very little about this event adds up at all.

At least 23 police officers en route to arrest members of a religious cult were ambushed and killed by a militia group in the central Nigerian region of Nasarawa.
Another 17 officers are still missing, BBC reported. They were headed to arrest Ombatse cult members related to charges of forcing local villagers to join their group, police chief Abayomi Akeremale said, in the BBC.
“We decided to send our men to the area to arrest members of Ombatse, including their priest,” the police chief said in the BBC report. “[They] have been going to churches and mosques initiating people into their cult by forcefully administering an allegiance oath to unwilling people.”
The attack took place in the village of Alakyo, BBC reported. No arrests have yet been made.

We’re continuing our revisit of the Boston Bombing crime scene – from the beginning. Here’s something we’ve uncovered recently which should be of interest…
The official explanation told to the public by law enforcement and FBI, is that the older brother in question was shot in a fire fight with police and then run over by a stolen Mercedes SUV driven by his younger brother Dzhokhar.
We’ve also already shown that our original analysis was correct – that a police firing squad tried to murder the unarmed younger brother Dzhokhar when he was discovered hiding under a tarp in a boat – and police still haven’t explained very well how his throat was somehow lacerated so badly that he has ended up in serious condition and unable to speak. This was one of numerous exhibits we believe to have uncovered and highlighted – of police denial and misinformation that should further call into question their credibility regarding official accounts of what happened and when it happened.
On top of this, we’ve also uncovered the video evidence where Boston Bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev appears to be alive, naked and escorted by police handcuffed and taken into a squad car. Whatever authorities claim happened after that is still at odds with the available evidence.
Now an additional piece of eyewitness evidence has surfaced from a radio broadcast which aired on Friday April 19, 2013 on WEEI 93.7 FM in Boston, where a caller named “Linda” explains how the shootout transpired on Dexter Street in Watertown during the early morning hours. She is describing how she saw the first suspect, Tamerlan, was run over by a police SUV and then mortally wounded by multiple police gun shots, after which time the police began their incredible manhunt for the second suspect Dzhokhar. She ends the interview by stating how the police had ordered her to stay inside for the rest of the night.
More and more, it appears that perhaps suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was terminated with extreme prejudice. So we are posing this question: does someone not want either of these two brothers to tell their story in public? Listen, and you decide…

The timing of the Boston Bombing with the national partisan gun control debate is a collision of two events that is hard to overlook when you take into account the very real Katrina-style imposition of Martial Law which descended so quickly on the city of Boston last week.
Would the federal government use an opportunity like that of the Boston Bombing in order to grab residents’ guns under the guise of national security?
During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, local and federal law enforcement were openly confiscating lawfully-owned fire arms from residents, in some cases by force at gun-point, and many were speculating this past week whether or not this would indeed happen in Boston as police put the city on lock-down while searching residents’ houses door-to-door in what has been said is America’s largest-ever manhunt for suspected student, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, now in custody and facing charges for using a ‘weapon of mass destruction’.
Although we can only confirm that it has been said, this piece was posted yesterday on Hands off Syria Facebook page by blogger Suzy Kassam who reports that gun seizures did indeed occur in Watertown, MA:
“I came back to America last week to grab my hard drives, all my stuff, and to get rid of my place in Boston —- only to be greeted with a reminder of how much I hated all the bullshit lies and corruption spoiling this once-great country. You know, my best friend worked one block from the bombing. Usually during the Marathon races, all businesses and offices are closed due to heavy heavy traffic. But on that day, my best friend had to go into his office for a meeting. At around five-ish that day, I had just woken up…when he came through the door in a state of shock. He couldn’t talk. I didn’t even know what had happened because I slept through it all. I still have jet lag.
Then the next day, we weren’t allowed out at all…not even to get some coffee. Men dressed in black gear paraded through the streets with weapons. In Watertown, they were confiscating guns from residents. This they don’t tell you on the news. I understand that perhaps the “suspect” may be tempted to fish for weapons, but what about the people that may need to protect themselves from the “suspect” or the government?…
(…) Not only did a bill pass to spy on you (on the same day of the bombing), but now there will be more eyes in the skies, a stronger push for confiscating guns, and no Miranda rights to be read to anybody. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but one who studies multiple theories to get to the truth.
A country that has no conscience when attacking the innocent anywhere, obviously sees no value in human life. Hence, it also sees no problem attacking its own innocent citizens.”

In Texas, hundreds of thousands of students are winding up in court for committing very serious offenses such as cursing or farting in class. Some of these so-called dangerous criminals (also known as teenagers) will face arrest and even incarceration, like the honors student who spent a night in jail for skipping class, or the 12-year-old who was arrested for spraying perfume on her neck. These cases have at least one thing in common in that they were carried out by special police officers walking a controversial beat: the hallways and classrooms of public schools.
As political pressure from both sides of the aisle mounts to increase police presence in American schools, evidence suggests adding armed guards will only thrust more disadvantaged youth into the criminal justice system. Civil rights groups say policing our schools will further the institutionalization of what’s known as the “school-to-prison pipeline.”
To understand the potential consequences of putting police inside public schools, we can take a look at Texas, where students face one of the most robust school-to-prison pipelines in the country. According to the youth advocacy group Texas Appleseed, school officers issued 300,000 criminal citations to students in 2010, some handed to children as young as six years old.
As the New York Times notes, Texas Appleseed and a local NAACP chapter filed a complaint in February against a school district with a particular knack for criminalizing children, especially minorities. The complaint says Bryan Independent School District of Texas’ Brazos County, disproportionately ticketed black students for misdemeanors, potentially violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Black students accounted for 46 percent of tickets issued in 2011 to 2012, despite only making up 21 percent of the student body.

Because of a severe lack of balanced media coverage and contorted characterisation by the western media, very few people in America and Europe have little, if any real idea of the scope of Israel’s brutal occupation and racial subjugation of its native Palestinian population.
As US President Barrack Obama does his Israel tour this week, the mainstream corporate media appear to be completely synchronised in their headlines, quotes and talking points like “Obama strengthens ties with Israel”, and “Obama pledges an eternal alliance with Israel”, and finally, quoting the President who announced, ”The United States is proud to stand with you as your strongest ally and your greatest friend,” at his lavish welcoming ceremony at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport, with Air Force One rolling up to the sound of trumpets.
Palestinians unfortunately are not as enamoured with the smooth-talking leader of Israel’s number one financial sponsor, as their protests continue to mount during his visit.
Consider this: More than half of all Palestinian males will have been arrested and detained by the IDF and Israeli security personnel before they reach their 21st birthday. What’s worse however, is the common practice of child snatching, which has created an underage pogrom in Israel.
A recent British Foreign Office fact-finding mission confirmed what many already knew – that there a thousands of Palestinian children in Israeli jails, with many of them detained with no notification to their families upon apprehension. BT Selem.org explains here:
“The Israeli Youth Law requires that a parent or adult be present during the interrogation of child suspects. The law does not formally apply to Palestinians in the occupied territories, who are subject to Israeli military law, but the military court has recommended that the relevant provisions be taken into account in all dealings with Palestinian children.”It’s systematic, and designed to continually break the indigenous population to the will of their colonial apartheid lords as evidenced this week:
“B’Tselem this morning urgently contacted the Army’s Legal Advisor for Judea and Samaria, demanding his emergency intervention regarding the detention of numerous children, including some as young as 8 to 10 years old, by the Israeli military this morning in Hebron. Preliminary information received this morning indicates that Soldiers detained or arrested over twenty minors on their way to school. About ten of them were released. The video was filmed by an international activist.”Two videos presented below offer a little glimpse into to situation which is mostly concealed from media consumers in the west. These are just two of thousands of videos available online which illustrate Israel’s inhumane treatment of Palestinians.
See child-snatching video here…
For those sitting comfortably in the US and Europe who aren’t sure what day-to-day Palestinian conditions are like in the occupied West Bank, or around Gaza, this video (below) should help them to understand that reality. Watch…
With all the billions in military aid given to Israel each year, perhaps Americans and Europeans will start demanding that the Israelis start making progress towards dismantling their 70 year old religious state, in favour of something more suitable for 21st century society?
It’s time we start demanding justice for Palestinians, and we can start by cutting off our expensive military lifeline to the State of Israel.
The wife of former president Nelson Mandela has warned that South Africa has become an ‘angry nation’, as it is refusing to deal with its apartheid past. Human rights activist Graca Machel, 67, said the nation is on the brink of ‘something very dangerous’ which it may not be able to stop.
The Mozambican third wife of ANC icon Mandela was speaking at the memorial service of a taxi driver who died in police custody after officers tied his hands to the back of their van and dragged him to this death. Taxi driver Mido Macia is alleged to have argued a traffic violation after which police handcuffed the 27-year-old to their vehicle in front of a horrified crowd. He was found dead two hours later in a police cell in the Daveyton township of Johannesburg, last Tuesday. At the memorial Mrs Machel said South Africa’s anger came from ‘unaddressed issues’ referring to the nation’s history of apartheid, The Telegraph reports. Mrs Machel, said a reluctance to deal with the nation’s past has resulted in an ‘increasing institutionalisation of violence and a police force which is ‘actively aggressive’ towards the public. ‘South Africa is an angry nation,’ she said. ‘We are on the precipice of something very dangerous with the potential of not being able to stop the fall.’
Our first question is: What did he know that got him executed?
Why do authorities say that his death is not being treated as suspicious?
Who is asking these questions now? This is what the Mail say…
- The 43-year-old was found dead at Camden address
- He worked for Specialist Protection Command
- Death is not being treated as suspicious
- Met Police would not confirm or deny if officer had access to police weapon
A police special protection officer has been found shot dead at a house in London.
The 43 year old PC, from the Specialist Protection Command, was found at the address in Camden yesterday afternoon.
The unit covers protection duties for VIPs including the Prime Minister.
The Metropolitan Police said that the death is not being treated as suspicious. An investigation is now underway which will look at whether a police firearm was involved.
The Met Police would not confirm or deny this evening if the officer would have had access to a police weapon.
The officer, who has not been named, is thought to have moved with his girlfriend to the cobbled mews tucked away in Camden less than two years ago.
Neighbours said they arrived home from work to see the front door of the converted mews house smashed in and murder detectives stationed outside…
The man was not under investigation as part of either the ‘plebgate’ probe or the inquiries into alleged phone hacking and corrupt payments to public officials.
Specialist Operations is divided into three sections which are known as commands. Within the three commands are several units which are used for protection.
