Ah yikes, so probably not the mental health thing now...
I read somewhere he was Somalian by birth?
Whatever truth will come.
Does he have red feet? He could identify as a Fab lolly and I don't think you can prosecute ice creams.
Also a matter of investigative tactics.... police can hold people for far longer in custody, pre charge, for 'terrorist ' offences then they can for non terrorist offences
Spoiler: Detention periods
What is the maximum period of time a person can be detained pre-charge in non-terrorism cases?
In normal criminal cases, the maximum period is 72 hours.
Section 41(1) Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 (PACE) provides that the police can only detain a person for 24 hours following arrest before the person must be brought before a court or released. However, section 42 allows that – in the case of serious arrestable offences – detention can be authorised by a police officer of Superintendent rank for up to 36 hours. Further detention of a suspect up to a maximum of 72 hours can only be authorised by a magistrate.
What about terrorism cases?
Anyone arrested under section 41 Terrorism Act 2000 is subject to a special regime for pre-charge detention under Schedule 8. This includes not only longer maximum periods of detention but also restrictions on obtaining legal advice in certain circumstances.
The maximum period of detention under Schedule 8 was originally set at seven days in 2000. However, this was amended by section 306 Criminal Justice Act 2003 to 14 days. Following the 7 July 2005 bombings in London the government announced proposals to extend this to 90 days. These were defeated in the House of Commons in late 2005, but an alternative measure was passed (section 23 Terrorism Act 2006) to extend the maximum to 28 days.
Now you mention it he looks a bit like Justin Trudeau, is he on an official visit?
A white idiot blacked up?
Glad no one died.
Lol, underrated post.
The crappy camera has over-exposed the grey rainy sky reflecting off his leg so it looks white despite him being black - it's a common thing for a camera's over-exposure to change the colours of items, just see the Blue/Black vs White/Gold dress for a common example.
TBH my first thought was a bit of gang stuff rather than "Terrorism" but as the suspect was said to be 40yo that's less likely now even though I know the Police are holding under Terrorism but thats just the start of the investigation which could go anywhere.
Probably the fault of Boris somehow. It's just a friendly old stabbing anyway, barely news anymore.
lol best reply yet
Looks like you're right, you can see the colour of their leg change.
Yup, we're at the stage where we just shrug now.
Seems to be on all the news channels, to be fair.
I detest these extremists.
jacko whitening cream on legs?
Ask Justin Trudeau.
This is a pretty solid band name. Nice.
While people carrying knives don't face serious punishment, will be a daily occurrence, I'm afraid.
I quite like Love sock.
^ is that a haiku? What's the rule? 7-5-7? Or is it 5-7-5? I think it's the latter.
