UK: Police chief defends deputy who stayed in car as officer was killed during Westminster jihad massacre


This is why Britain is in the fix it is in today. You can’t call jihad terrorism Islamic, and you can’t call cowardice what it is. British authorities are embroiled in an all-out war against reality. Of course Craig Mackey was cowardly when he stayed in his car during the Westminster jihad massacre. If he wasn’t paralyzed from the waist down, what else can you possibly call it? Leaders such as Theresa May and Cressida Dick are woefully incompetent, as well as dishonest, and are focused on targeting patriots who are opposed to their suicidal policies rather than the jihadis who are determined to bring Britain down.

“Westminster attack: Police chief defends deputy who stayed in car as officer was killed,” by Lucia Binding, Sky News, October 13, 2018 (thanks to David):

The head of the Metropolitan Police has said it is “simply wrong” to criticise her deputy for remaining in his car during the Westminster terror attack.

Cressida Dick said that accusing Sir Craig Mackey of cowardice was “confused, unpleasant, personalised and ignorant” and was “simply not supported by the evidence”.

Her comments came after an inquest concluded that Westminster attacker Khalid Masood was lawfully killed.

The Muslim convert mowed down pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in a hired SUV, killing four people and seriously injuring 29 others, before stabbing PC Keith Palmer to death.

Jurors at the Old Bailey heard that Sir Craig, one of the country’s most senior police officers, stayed in his official car as Masood murdered PC Palmer during the attack in March last year.

Sir Craig, who was acting commissioner at the time of the attack, has faced calls to resign after telling the inquest he locked the doors and remained in the vehicle due to having no personal equipment or a radio.

Defending Sir Craig, Ms Dick said: “These criticisms are simply not supported by the evidence.

“The attack in New Palace Yard occurred and was stopped in seconds. Sir Craig had absolutely no opportunity to stop the killer or save PC Palmer.

“Anyone who suggests otherwise is simply wrong.

“The actions he was able to and did take were to protect the unarmed police staff colleagues who were in the car with him. He went on to lead the Met’s response to the attack with distinction.”

Chief coroner Mark Lucraft QC defended Sir Craig’s actions as “sensible and proper and intended to protect others in the car”.

In his summing up, Mr Lucraft said: “It is clear from the evidence of Sir Craig there was nothing he could have done to stop Masood.

“Pc Palmer was under attack practically as soon as Sir Craig saw the attacker.”

Following the inquest, the Met’s counter-terror chief Neil Basu accepted there were “shortcomings” in security on the day of the Westminster ttack [sic].

He said: “In relation to PC Keith Palmer’s death, the chief coroner identified shortcomings in the security system at the Palace of Westminster, including the supervision of those engaged in those duties.

“We unreservedly accept those conclusions.”

Mr Basu added that even the possibility of losing the chance to protect any police officer is “unacceptable” and that the force are “deeply sorry”….
