London Bridge Attacker ex terrorist prisoner.  Contains some violence

The man who carried out Friday’s stabbing attack at London Bridge was a former prisoner convicted of terrorism offences.

The attacker is named by police as 28-year-old Usman Khan. He was out of prison on licence at the time of the attack.  A man and a woman were killed and three others were injured.  The man named as University of Cambridge graduate Jack Merritt.

Khan was shot dead by officers after members of the public restrained him.  Police declared the attack a terrorist incident.

Usman Khan known to the authorities. In 2012 he was convicted for terrorism offences, according to Met Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu.

“He was released from prison in December 2018 on licence and clearly, a key line of enquiry now is to establish how he came to carry out this attack,” he said in a statement.

The Times reported that Khan’s release from prison last year came after he agreed to wear an electronic tag and have his movements monitored.

Officers search an address in Staffordshire, where Khan had been living.

Prime Minister and Mayor of London praised the actions of the public when they tackled the attacker.  One removed a knife and others used a fire extinguisher.  Should they have intervened?  Up until now Police advise against public involvement.  What are your thoughts.  Is it bravery or not?  Would you have done the same thing?  Did their action prevent further deaths?
