A 22-year-old man has been charged on suspicion of making malicious comments on Facebook following the murder of British soldier Lee Rigby.

A second man was visited by officers and warned about his activity on social media, the spokesman added. It comes after 25-year-old Drummer Rigby was brutally murdered on a street in Woolwich, south east London, on Wednesday.

The father-of-one, from Manchester, had fought in Afghanistan with the 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.

Detective Inspector Ed Yaxley, of Avon and Somerset Police, said: 'On Wednesday evening, we were contacted by people concerned about comments made on social media accounts.

'These comments were directed against a section of our community. Comments such as these are completely unacceptable and only cause more harm to our community in Bristol.

'People should stop and think about what they say on social media before making statements as the consequences could be serious.'

Anti-religious statements? Surely Richard Dawkins should have been executed if this were an actual crime.

Um, no, the racist and anti-”infidel” acts were perpetrated by the murderer.

I’m sorry, I’ve known and served with many fantastic Brits over the years, but it’s becoming apparent that collectively they’ve decided to commit suicide of their national identity. Britain is doomed as a non-Islamic nation—unless somehow, in a last gasp of pragmatic nationalism, UKIP emerges to save it.

What they don’t mention in this article is that they sent 5 patrol cars and 10 cops to arrest these evil Facebook posters while only one cop car was sent to subdue the beheading terrorists, who BTW considering how many times they were shot and lived makes me think that this whole arrest was a hoax, that they were “shot” with blanks.

Here, look at the video...Just why were these Islamos waiting around? Why aren’t people afraid of them? Is beheading people something that goes on everyday in London? This is a terrorist attack, these guys made it quiet clear what they were about to people with cellphones, and one cop car shows up like it is giving out parking tickkets? Where is the back up? Why did this ambulance suddenly appear immediately after they were shot and park by them and not by the soldier who has just been hacked up? Where is the blood on these terrorists who were just shot umpteen times?

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/woolwich-attack-video-watch-full-1908975

England is in deep deep trouble and I think it is a looooot worse than people realize. My theory is the Islamo Nazis have got their mitts in the Government big time, this isn’t just liberals alone.

1—They were not shot with blanks, and to suggest the arrests were a hoax is in poor taste, given a young man lies dead.

2-The two WANTED suicide/martyrdom by cop. Thats why they waited.

3—Are you serious?. Why yes, people get beheaded in the UK every day, didnt you know. And we all wear deerstalker hats and say pip pip to each other.

4—The first police car contains normal police armed with 50000 volt tasers, CS spray and batons. As they reported one of the men was armed with a firearm, control handed over the armed unit that was on its way. Had the men not had the gun, the first unit would have dealt with the two men.

5—The ambulance was called earlier by members of the public and again by the first police. It didnt park by Lee Digby because the police had informed the ambulance by radio that the lad was dead. And ambulance drivers deal with the injured in any situation they are ordered to go to. Its their job to do so, irrespective of who the injured party is. Come on, you know that. Same in the US.

6—The two men are in hospital with bullet wounds, one very serious.

If you think its a hoax, you are wrong and you sound frankly ridiculous, like a NWO/black helicopter nut.

Oh, and the UK is not in trouble. We have serious problems that need to be addressed but this type of barbarity will not win, will not conquer the UK. Nor does it control the UK govt (which is mostly conservative btw not liberal).

We defeated the Nazis, we defeated decades of IRA terrorism which murdered and maimed thousands of British men, women and children, and we will beat this.

People who think the UK is ‘done’ are wrong and will be as wrong as those who said so in 1815, 1914, 1940 and 1979.

The terrorists are in the hospital? What hospital? What condition are they in? Not ONE report has come in on that. You see how many times they were “shot”? Where’s the blood? Even when he was turned over, no blood yet he was shot multiple times.

Well I just looked at the websites of your UK papers, Daily mail, Daily mirror, Evening standard, absolutely nothing about them or their injuries or the hospital they are in. Hey don’t get mad at me, question your government who is allowing these animals to run amok and then treats them with kid gloves when they kill yet sends half their force to bust a guy who “insults” Islam. What’s wrong with this picture? Sounds to me like you got Muzzies running things and not the English.

Bollocks, the UK media is reporting nothing but the Woolwich attack. BBC, Sky News, ITV etc are camped outside the two hospitals they two are in.

As to half a police force, remember when first reported, the murder would have been treated as just another street assault. Then more 999 calls came in and it became obvious someone probably had been murdered. Its fallacious to try and suggest the murder was treated less severely than incidents after. The murder would have been called in initially as another standard street incident/assault. And the police would have responded with the normal amount of vehicles and officers needed for that.

Only after the initial calls, did it become apparent that there had been a murder and the two were heavily armed, one with a gun. Armed units were notified immediately.

Britain has problems, but it is not doomed.

Mark Steyn (To The Slaughter) most persuasively disagrees with you:

Nevertheless, there is a disturbing passivity to this scene: a street full of able-bodied citizens being lectured to by blood-soaked murderers who have no fear that anyone will be minded to interrupt their diatribes. In fairness to the people of Boston, they were ordered to “shelter in place” by the governor of Massachusetts. In Woolwich, a large crowd of Londoners apparently volunteered to “shelter in place,” instinctively. Consider how that will play when these guys’ jihadist snuff video is being hawked around the bazaars of the Muslim world. Behold the infidels, content to be bystanders in their own fate.

This passivity set the tone for what followed. In London as in Boston, the politico-media class immediately lapsed into the pneumatic multiculti Tourette’s that seems to be a chronic side effect of excess diversity-celebrating: No Islam to see here, nothing to do with Islam, all these body parts in the street are a deplorable misinterpretation of Islam. The BBC’s Nick Robinson accidentally described the men as being “of Muslim appearance,” but quickly walked it back lest impressionable types get the idea that there’s anything “of Muslim appearance” about a guy waving a machete and saying “Allahu akbar.” A man is on TV dripping blood in front of a dead British soldier and swearing “by Almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you,” yet it’s the BBC reporter who’s apologizing for “causing offence.” To David Cameron, Drummer Rigby’s horrific end was “not just an attack on Britain and on the British way of life, it was also a betrayal of Islam. . . . There is nothing in Islam that justifies this truly dreadful act.”... (snip)

And so life goes on, and it’s all so “mundane,” in Simon Jenkins’s word, that you barely notice when the Jewish school shuts up, and the gay bar, and the uncovered women no longer take a stroll too late in the day, and the publishing house that gets sent the manuscript for the next Satanic Verses decides it’s not worth the trouble. . . . But don’t worry, they’ll never defeat our “free speech” and our “way of life.”

One in ten Britons under 25 is now Muslim. That number will increase, through immigration, disparate birth rates, and conversions like those of the Woolwich killers, British-born and -bred. Metternich liked to say the Balkans began in the Landstrasse, in southeast Vienna. Today, the Dar al-Islam begins in Wellington Street, in southeast London. That’s a “betrayal” all right, but not of Islam.

No one here takes delight in the fall of a once great country. Sorry if you cannot handle
facts. You can be sure terrorist who live in England, sleepers, observed how
long it took for armed police to arrive. The fact that Brittish citizens cannot
carry ANY weapon to defend themselves and England’s immigration policies have doomed that nation.

Believe me, scotsman, I take no delight in England’s predicament. I love England——it’s the country of my ancestors, and its history is a hobby & interest of mine.

But like the U.S., England has become cowed by political correctness and the wrongheaded notion that “diversity” must be embraced. There was a recent article on FR about a British town banning the flag of St. George because it offends Muslims. That decision was reversed, but it shows you the general mindset of the country. It’s a tragedy.

1—14, and they are usually much quicker. Something wrong in the chain of command.

2—Sadly, more or less true. It depends on what you are carrying, for what reason, who you are. IE the police wont nick me for carrying a screwdriver, they would nick me if I was 16 and carrying a knife for no good reason.

3—I guess I just get tired of the ‘UK is finished’/’Uk is run by Muslims’ nonsense. The UK has serious problems, but we arent a hellhole, we arent run by THEM, and we arent going to die anytime soon.

Well, my somewhat limited view from across the pond is that they’ve got their mitts in the government of the city of London at least. That will only expand as time goes on and more Islamic Jihadist reinforcements (oh, sorry immigrants and asylum seekers) arrive.

And the influence in and over the national government will only grow also with time.

*********************************************************************
Sorry scotsman, you didn't give the Nazis a beachhead and then invite more and more millions of Nazis to that beachhead and then allow them to disperse across Britain and, on top of that, support them with funds from British taxpayers and give them the vote. And you didn't persecute native British who spoke ill of those Nazis.

Seriously, you need to WAKE UP and STOP LIVING IN DENIAL. Britain needs to change what it is doing or it will complete its journey to Dhimmitude and then to full Islamification.

Your name indicates you are a Scotsman. The Scots would have never
won their freedom with the attitude you have. The reason we say England
is finished are the facts we observe when something like this happens.
Two Muslims are butchering an English solder and people just standing
around watching it happen and not doing one thing to stop it. Just waiting
on the Gov to show up. That type of mentality will not serve you well, in
the future my Scottish friend.

British political philosopher, social commentator and historian of ideas, David Selbourne, made much the same warning as Mark Steyn... in March, 2008.

I'm quite sure that he is even more alarmed today.

Firstly, I am British ex-military, and took the Queens shilling to defend and die for Britain if necessary.

Secondly, growing up I can remember Americans refusing, into the 90’s, to come to the UK or Europe because of the IRA and other terrorist bombs. And frankly, the whole Boston Strong thing was BS, as a city pissed itself and hid from a 19 year old.

Now dont you think I could say that because of the above, Americans are cowards and wimps?. That America is finished?.

Why are we finished yet you arent?.

America is well on the way, as well. You should visit this site more frequently. Many of us recoginize that unless America closes it’s borders
and other issues, we are finished, as well. However, we do not understand
how a solder can be butchered and people just watch and not do anything
to stop it, but wait for the Gov to show up. That is something that would not
happen here. Americans would pull out their gun. If they didn’t have a gun
they would look for a 2x4 or a metal pipe...anything to stop what was going
on. We would not just sit back and watch and wait for the Gov to arrive.
Having said that, we are certainly on or way to a Balkanized society, as well.

Again, this is a serious question and we are seeing the same doom approach ...However, Boston is not the "U.S." and the Second Amendment of our Constitution is still sacred.
