Seven Birmingham Men Arrested Under Terror Act

#1
Seven men have been arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism, West Midlands Police have said.

Six of the men are from the West Midlands and one is from West Yorkshire.

The arrests followed a routine stop of a vehicle by police on the M1 motorway in South Yorkshire on June 30.

The car was impounded on suspicion of having no insurance.

Firearms, offensive weapons and other material were later found hidden inside, prompting police to take action to trace and arrest the driver, passenger and others suspected of being involved.

Six of the detainees are in their 20s and from the Sparkhill, Moseley, Alum Rock and Smethwick areas of the West Midlands and the seventh man is a 43-year-old from Kirklees.

The British police must have a really good rule book about differentiating offensive weapons from defensive weapons.

Do I understand correctly...

Car impounded for not having insurance

(at some later time/date -possibly up to a week later) search of vehicle result in find of weapons

Plod then have to go and find driver (who hopefully hasn't done a runner!)

West Midlands Police not having the best of weeks

Far be it from me to point out, looking at these gentlemen on TV less then five minutes ago, but they all look vaguely 'not stereotypically Nigel-like'.

As for the ****** on the other thread who accused me of being stupid when I asked about 'bomber profiling', perhaps there is something in it after all.

Are we really supposed to think that those given the responsibilies of keeping this nation safe from terrorism actually do NOT have a 'bomber profile'?

Bollocks.

While there is a high likelyhood that the arrested persons are Muslim fundamentalists and possibly are of immigrant descent, don´t forget that there still exists homegrown terrorism as well, starting from local Muslim converts (often very fanatical) through Irish Republican dissidents (INLA, RIRA,CIRA etc.) to anarchist and communist fanatics (getting support now mainly in southern Europe through the economic crisis) and finaly Nazis (remember the group in Germany, which killed ten people over 7 years?). They also might be a group of kooks like Breivik or the militia in Alaska a while ago, which were simply against the US federal government.

At least three of them are from Sparkhill. That virtually gaurantees the ethnic origin.


I followed a white van through Sparkhill last week with "P***'s Go Home" written on the back. Remarkably brave move I thought.

They caught the first World Trade Centre bombers because they went back for the deposit on the rental van after the bombing.

You can always rely on the muslims to be frugal to a fault.

Now now, just because six people from Birmingham and one from West Yorkshire were arrested for terrorism it doesn't mean they are obviously... oh **** it, we all know the next details that will be released.

Quite right old chap, it was wrong of me to make such a narrow minded statement.

It is of course well known that yorkshiremen are tight bastards as well.

So you reckon fundie terrorists are out of the top drawer, brain-wise, do you?

Mmm, fair one. Yeah I was thinking along the lines of more 'professional' (for want of a better description) terrs, I'd also forgotten about the **** who blew his y-fronts up, the shoe bomber, the Glasgow airport clowns and the complete ********* who, with all the sky of the Eastern United States available to them, BOTH, crashed into buildings; fuckwits one and all.
