    Horrible. Sad anyone would do that. Prayers for the family and people who saw that.

    I wonder which country the murderer meant when he said "our land"? He sounded very London to me.

    Just horrible.

    Many parts of Africa once under British colonial rule still speak with British accents.

    I saw some video of the immediate aftermath and almost was sick to my stomach. I can't even imagine being his mother and knowing what he went through. Thank you Lord that I'm not the nurse for the suspects who were shot by police after the murder.....I'd do my job, but I would NOT be happy about it.

    Honestly, I find it very idiotic when 'muslims' 'islam' or whatever name/s people call themselves, who "try" or "give statements" like those two London terrorists.... very irritating. If they don't like the British government (by mentioning "their land" in their statement)... why even bother living in England? The man speaking (in the video), did sound very everyday Londoner, but he doesn't seem to think so. He doesn't seem to consider himself having a British nationality. I'm sure that no one forced him to live in England. He and 'his buddy/accomplice' deserve to be shot in the head! Maybe then, they'll realize that they should've stayed in whatever 'land that one man' was referring to. Of course they'll both be dead... if those two have a 'need' to kill, they should have done so 'in their land'.

    Did no one try to stop this horror?
    It certainly would have been terrifying, horrifying, nightmarish...but did no one try to help?

    I thought they were fighting them over 'there' so they didn't have to fight them over 'here'?

    how and with what? The Brits cannot own handguns and the thugs had meat cleavers. Hard to do battle against those odds

    Very unfortunate that the Brits prefer to be helpless.
    I much prefer our freedom to choose to arm ourselves or not.

    I was sickened by this senseless act of violence and then the guy covered in blood with the meat clever in his hand was talking to a by stander....If I had no weapon I don't think I would have intervened either.

    What a senseless act of violence...what is wrong with people??????

    My heartfelt prayers go out to Brittan and that soldiers family.

    Mr Whitacre, it seems that the murderer was British born - that's what I'm getting at. This "our country" he speaks of is nonsense.

    As to the Britons choosing to be helpless that others have mentioned.........I was living in Britain at the time of the hand gun ban. It was after the Dunblane massacre where a gunman shot sixteen children between the ages of five and six. The law was very easy to pass because Britain has never had a gun culture. I went 27 years living in the UK without once seeing a gun. Therefore banning something that few people ever used was met with little resistance.

    Some people might see gun ownership as a form of freedom. I see living in a practically gun free world where citizens are not suspicious of their neighbors a form of freedom. It's very difficult to describe such a culture to people who don't live in it, but the average Brit never felt they were giving anything up, and certainly not choosing to be helpless. Just trying to explain the situation from a different perspective than the American one.

    Another thing of note.........I notice the police shot to wound.
