Terror in the Streets

As of now just about everyone who pays attention knows that there was a incident of “sudden jihad syndrome” in London yesterday where two men brutally murdered a British soldier.

What is being revealed today is that the two attackers did not attempt to flee or attack anyone else.  They waited about half an hour for armed police officers to respond to the scene of the murder where there was a brief standoff before the two suspects were wounded and incapacitated by the police.

During the half hour time-period, the video showing one of the terrorists spouting political rhetoric and walking about with brandished weapons and covered in blood was taken.

While this attack is brazen and frightening for Londoners, I noticed a few things.

One – even in London the police response is inexplicably lengthy and gave plenty of time for the terrorists to disappear and flee or cause mass casualties.

Two – (and this is commonly known) firearms are exceedingly rare in private ownership in Britain so there was no way for the citizenry to apprehend or detain these proven violent men without placing themselves at risk of great harm since one of the two was armed with a pistol and both were openly carrying knives.

Three – there are a number of men visible in the videos just across the street watching the two men. These men greatly outnumbered the two terrorists and could have overpowered and detained them forcefully if the group had decided to do so, yet they did not despite the barbaric nature of the initial act of violence.

Four – British women have bigger balls than British men.  A mother of two engaged the two terrorists in conversation to prevent them from getting more agitated.

Now my wife and I always joke that mothers especially are the biggest threat to violent people in the world because while husbands and fathers recognize their duty and responsibility to put their lives on the line and if necessary lay them down for their families; mothers have a greater responsibility to care and protect their children, which means that they will fight harder and more viciously in order to not just end the threat, but to walk away alive in order to continue caring for their children.

My only takeaway from this event, which is unfortunate for London and Britain, is that such an attack would likely end differently in the United States.  There is a different mindset here (as evidenced in the immediate aftermath of Boston, the tornadic devastation in Moore, and myriad other times).

Imagine such an attack in Richmond, Atlanta, Dallas, Cleveland, Colorado Springs, Phoenix, or Indianapolis.  Each of those states permits lawful concealed carry.  Each of these major metropolises has devoted law enforcement professionals that will not wait to assemble en masse in order to confront two armed attackers, but will charge in alone if necessary to stop an active attack.  Those attackers would not have been free for thirty minutes to do whatever they wished… they would have found themselves staring down the barrel of a gun, or many guns, quickly.  Whether they were armed vigilant citizens or police would not matter.

For a country where it used to be a legal requirement that all able-bodied men must train for three hours daily in the use of an assault weapon, this is an embarrassment.
