British woman killed by Bulgarian in Tenerife!

Postby DaveyBoy » Fri May 13, 2011 5:09 pm

I've just heard the BBC Radio 2 news and there was a report of a British woman being 'beheaded' by a Bulgarian man in a supermarket in Tenerife! How dreadful, apparently she was a 62 year old queueing with her shopping when the guy took a knife from the shop and attacked her. It seems he then fled and was caught by security guards!

It sounds like something from a horror movie, I hope i've heard it wrong! Has anyone else aware of the alleged incident?

What a shocker.

regards

We've seen stories like this many times in the past,and no doubt we will see them in the future.
So many people who are in positions of power and authority in various organisations that can prevent this,but instead do nothing positive or pro active,and it results in yet another innocent victim.
Until they get their act together,it will happen again,and it could be you or me or anyone else who is unlucky enough.

All over the news this morning, and makes for pretty gruesome reading. Apparently it was a random attack on a woman queuing in a shop. Awful.

Well first we have the EEC and it's immigration policy,and the suitablity of people from one country being allowed to live in another country,which COULD be a factor in this case,then we have the local police and authorites,and the way they deal with people who are known trouble makers,the care of mentally ill people and the protection of ordinary citizens from said people,the display in shops of lethal weapons which COULD also be a factor in this case,and the ease of shops and stores making it possible for anyone to walk in,pick one up and do whatever they like.All of which if they had been dealt with differently could have stopped this killing,or even just one of them,if people in positions of responsibility and foresight actually saw what was possible and did something about it.
