The lawyer for the bomb suspects insists they are innocent..How does she know?

Recommended Posts

what a truly ridiculous thing to say, did you actually read my post?

 

The reason i 'brought' the IRA into it was to a draw a comparison between this time of apparently high terrorist threat and the last time the country faced a high level of terrorist activity. There is little to justify a different level of response as far as i'm aware, but this time we have emergency legislation, shoot to kill (innocent people apparently) policies, the loss of certain civil liberties, etc...

 

The question is a perfectly valid one, why are these response needed now if they were not needed the last time we faced a similar threat?

 

Edit - to add, Tony, I agree, I think that the police and the services do the best they can in the circumstances, it's mainly the politicians I don't trust and I see their responses to the situation in a very cynical light.

 

The threat today is not just explosive devices, but the likes of anthrax, chemical and viral weapons of unknown mass destruction. Not only to us but our children and their children. Terrorism has moved with the times, they can detonate remotely; they are willing to sacrifice their own lives. The IRA were not keen to do that. So sadly our security services have to act as best as they can, with seemingly undue speed in recent cases. They are for the main part young people doing their best to keep Britain safe, but they unfortunately, because of the very nature of this task, bound to make errors.

'Dear old Halibut' has a very full and active life thankyou - of whach the forum plays only a small, but interesting part. Since when did having a bit of cash make a reasonable excuse for getting oneself shot?

Talk about clutching at straws....

we've had certain rightwing group members on here crowing about the police's success, in this case.. and yet there is no evidence against them, and they have been released without charge.

 

It's horrendous, just like the De Menendes case in stockwell.

 

PT

 

Let's wait for all the screeming that would follow if the police ignore the next threat and sometihing does go off.

The police in the NBC kit were there in case a chemical bomb was found so that the residents could be moved out quickly.

Why is it always the security forces who take the flack. May be that the info was fed to them so that the extemists could see what the reaction would be and how they could counter act it.

either way, the fact is that it only takes one terrorist 'getting lucky' to cause devastation and destruction - the security services have to be lucky every time.

 

I'd much rather this situation than one in which we ignore tip offs unless the evidence is rock solid...

Anlabystreeet implies stitched up men are benefit frausters...how does she know?

 

I really can't believe you won't give this up. Admit it - you thought they were guilty and now you can't bear it that you were wrong. So much so that you STILL insist on casting aspersions against these innocent people. What is your problem, is it the race of them that you can't deal with? Now you imply they are benefit fraudsters...I have read that they were all hard working poeple with their own business and as several people lived in the house the money wasn't that much anyway between them. Anyway why am I defending them? There is nothing to defend.
