My condolences to our British members
I wasn't sure to post this, but I am horrified about the murder of a member of the Royal Artillery in England itself, by an Islamic extremist.
He was evidently decapitated. What a miserable death.

But why does everyone stand and watch and let things continue, and film it???. Is every one of the crowd too afraid to step in to try to save a dying veteran? Do we all just feel safer waiting for the police, while a man gets butchered in broad daylight?
I guess a few women tried to protect the body from the two men. But there are dozens of people standing around staring.

STFU Rabbit. While the picture taking and filming is stupid, most people aren't going to jump in when weapons are involved. Yep, behind our screens many of us are Superman, in the real world many walk on by.
Yes, that's damn near EVERYWHERE in the world. Yes, in many different eras. It is a sad picture of humanity in any decade.

Thanks chaps, I live just a few miles from where this happened and have family in that area.
The attackers had several blades of various size and a pistol. Bystanders would have been very silly to try and intervene and even if they could it was probably to late for the victim by the time anyone could react.
The worry here now is can we limit the inevitable racial/religous backlash that the more right wing movements here ( EDL ) are stirring up. It is also ( imo ) a problem to try and tie this attack in with 'terrorism' which seems to be Cameron's response.

My condolences go out to the soldiers family and teammates.
Aside from the fact that the animals who did this were said to have been Muslim Extrememists, what makes anyone think they weren't a pair of Yardies who became Muslim in prison and just criminals to begin with. The one talking certainly sounded like he was from London to me. Either way they should be brought back to the barracks for a stomping.I feel like you eye-bawlin' me, dawg!

I want to see the viral video where two terrorists try something like this and get torn to pieces by the crowd.
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one.
