Now I’m not religious in the slightest and I’m not supporting her view, but I’m guessing the fundamental Christian principle of forgiveness has kind of passed you by?
It's probably for another thread, but I'm guessing that being able to forgive, even in cases like this, is better for folks than living with a raging hatred all your life, unable to find closure.It’s called forgiveness.
Apparently it brings people back to life and all the world‘s problems go away. I
once was forced toread a book about it and some guy did it. It was on a Friday, he took the weekend off and bingo, there he was, back on the Monday morning.
Agreed, but she's only following her script, I'd have been surprised if she'd said anything else. Bad timing for JC and his disciples.It hasn't passed me by, but do you not think that such comments might have better not been made on a day like today at a time of high emotion? At the best they're insensitive.
One of many Christian values, just like one that tells us " thou shalt not kill "

Not sure I could do it mind and it's far too soon in this case for the church or anyone else to be banging on about it. I doubt you could convince them of that though.
Strange that the local MP (Labour) interviewed earlier said although it had it’s problems it was a basically friendly area and that the local were shocked at the shooting.
ETA Chris Powell in his interview also said the suspect may not have even been from Croydon as suspects are often taking to holding centres for processing from other areas.
I'd have thought especially drunken women.

What, like “thou shall not covet thy neighbour’s wife”?
It would appear that the consent bit of 'Policing by Consent' is being withdrawn by some - perhaps the Police could apply Enforcement rules to them.Just off topic for a minute.
1) A colleague of mine arrested a woman for drunk and disorderly, he was single crewed and she was placed in the rear of the vehicle on the passenger side as was standard. During the drive she removed a stiletto and smashed into his head. He crashed the vehicle and was taken to hospital. He came back to work two weeks later and was written up for failure to adhere to force policy.
He was fined, but he didn't do it again.
2) The order of scariness when attending a house disturbance, was drunken women, dogs and angry men in that order.
It never went away, but an arrest search prior to transport can never be as thorough as a full search in custody where the Sgt can also authorise a strip search.
The facts need to be determined calmly and logically. At the end of the day only one person is responsible for this, the one pulling the trigger.
