Another senseless violence crime in London. Another American killed. Darlene Horton, 64, wife of Richard Wagner, a psychology professor from Florida State University, was an American stabbed and killed in London’s recent violent knife attack. They were just wrapping up and ready to head home after Professor Wagner’s summer session in London where he was teaching a course abroad. They were probably out for one last stroll of the city when the senseless attack occurred. The MSM is not going to call it a violent attack by a Muslim. Nope. It looks like these attacks and others are now being called “mental disorders”. That’s right! You can now not only be recruited by ISIS and kill people, but get away with it because it’s called a “mental disorder”. God forbid they call it another “radical Islamic terrorist attack” even if it was.
Darelen Horton, 64, was knifed to death and five others injured during a bloodbath attack carried out by a Norwegian-Somali man in central London Wednesday night.
Police sources confirmed the attacker hailed from Norway and is of Somali descent – and added that he has shown no signs of radicalization.
Other terrified onlookers described the crazed knifeman chasing pedestrians and “lunging for anyone he could see” as police confirmed mental health was a likely factor.
A 19-year-old man was arrested at the scene after being tasered by police in Russell Square as officers yelled: “Put it down.”
It comes as dramatic footage emerges of the suspect being arrested by police last night.
Witnesses reported the dying woman’s final words were: “He’s still here, he’s still here.”
Those injured were British, Australian, Israeli and another American.
London mayor Sadiq Khan urged people to remain “calm and vigilant”.
The horrific incident happened just yards from where one of the 7/7 terror attack bombs detonated in 2005.
One witness described a “chubby” white man in a t-shirt and shorts acting suspiciously.
Fernando, 40, a paralegal from Brazil, said: “I was cycling by and people screamed at me to stop. It was a Spanish family who approached me.
“It was a mother and father and two sisters. Then I saw a white lady, in her sixties, slumped against the railings.
“She had her head in a Spanish woman’s lap, the lady, who was trying to keep her alive by talking to her. They were not related, I think the Spanish family were just passing by.
“She had been stabbed in the back. She was bleeding. There was an English man who was white, I’d say around 45. He had been stabbed in the side.
“Then there was another lady. I didn’t know her nationality but I think she was white. She was in her twenties. She had been stabbed in her arm.
“The old lady had been stabbed in the back.
“The lady from the Spanish family told me that the guy had passed by, running, stabbing people. They said he had been wearing black shorts and a white t-shirt and was chubby.
“They said they thought he was white but he was covering his face like this [with arm]I think as he was stabbing people like this.”
Police confirmed terrorism was “one line of inquiry that we should explore”.
A knife used in the attack was pictured lying on the ground next to the murder scene – apparently tossed to the floor by the killer.
Three men and two woman were also injured – two of whom remain in hospital following the horrific mass stabbing near the capital’s Imperial Hotel.
One witness said: “I heard a scream, and then we went to the park and I saw a girl lying on the floor with blood coming from her back. Another girl had blood on her arm.
“They all spoke Spanish so I guess they were a group. I only saw the victim and the girl with the arm stabbed from that group.
“I just saw blood just next to her. She was lying on the floor with a friend hugging her.”
“There are no words to express our heartache over this terrible tragedy,” Florida State University President John Thrasher said. “We are shocked that such senseless violence has touched our own FSU family, and we will do all we can to assist Professor Wagner and his loved ones, as well as his friends and colleagues in the Psychology department, as they mourn.”
The death of Darlene Horton was a brutal, violent and senseless crime. The sad part is – THIS is becoming the “norm” in a country where too many improperly vetted immigrants who have not assimilated now reside. Sound familiar. It should. Obama is on track to do the very same in America.
Obama is on track to reach his goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees before the end of September. That’s right! 10,000!! His administration accepted 2,340 Syrian refugees just last month. It seems Obama’s got to hit the US target before he heads off to the upcoming UN General Assembly summit. There are over 480,000 Syrian refugees in need of resettlement or compared to a city in the U.S., that’s about the population the size of Atlanta.
No worries though…according to Secretary of State, John Kerry:
“We are very comfortable that we are bringing people in who will be a great plus to our country.” Kerry said.
Seriously?! The only ones with “mental disorders” are the Democrats like Obama and his administration who seem to think young girls getting raped in Idaho or innocent lives lost in San Bernardino and Orlando are not caused by radical Islamic terrorists. Wake Up People!
Whether you believe in God or not, America was founded on Judeo-Christian values. You can not expect millions of illegal immigrants to just “assimilate” in a country where the majority of Americans do not want them, and all will be well. Obama continues to flood the United States with thousands of refugees from terrorist supporting countries and assumes just that. Well, Obama and Kerry should tell that to the families of the victims in Oklahoma, Orlando, San Bernardino and others. Americans living in or near the hundreds of sanctuary cities Obama has created around America for the illegal immigrants to flood to are finding out the real effects.
If you want America to become more like Britain and the UK, keep electing Democrats like Clinton and RINOS like Paul Ryan. Sooner or later, America will become the UK, especially if they have their ways.
Our prayers are with the family of Darlene Horton and others who have suffered deaths due to these senseless and violent crimes. However, don’t blame this death on a “mental disorder”. This was just another crime by another radical terrorist. Period.
