London Police commissioner proud of diversity of those killed in terror attack

On Saturday, Cressida Dick, commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police, told the Associated Press that she’s proud of the diversity shown in the victims of the recent terrorist attack in the city, Breitbart reported.

“It’s desperately sad and poignant but among those who died is someone who’s British, there are French, Australian, Canadian, Spanish,” she said.  “In terms of our witnesses that we’ve spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity.”

Breitbart added:

She said she believed that long-time residents of London cherished the international flavour of London. “We believe of course that that’s what makes our city so great,” she said. “It’s a place where the vast majority of time it’s incredibly integrated and that diversity gives us strength.”

Dick stepped into the role of Commissioner in April. Previous to her appointment she was known to most of the public as the officer who presided over the botched police operation which saw Brazilian man Jean Charles de Menezes shot dead by officers who had mistaken him for a terror accomplice.

The force’s first female chief, she took the reins just weeks after a terrorist attack outside the houses of Parliament claimed four lives and left more than 50 others injured. It was the first of three attacks on British soil in as many months, two of which took place within the capital city.

But Dick is unperturbed by the rapid pace of events, insisting that London has long been the scene of terror. Following a line of argument similar to that of London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who argued that terror attacks are “part and parcel” of living in a large city, Dick said that it was the role of the security services merely to adapt to changing terror methods.

Twitchy noted:

Holy sh*t, right?

Of course we shouldn’t be surprised this is their ‘silver lining’ when one of the Jihadis who took part in the terror attack was on a TELEVISION SHOW called, ‘Jihadis Next Door’.


Naturally, this didn’t sit too well with many on social media.


Sure sounds like it.


One person asked:


Sad but true.  As we noted yesterday while reporting on the left’s response to the #MarchAgainstSharia that took place in some 28 cities across the country, liberals apparently think those who oppose oppression and fascism are oppressive bigots and fascists.

It seems that Michael Savage was correct when he said that liberalism is a mental disorder…
