A serving soldier took a walk in Woolwich and was confronted with pure evil driving a car, that evil, never having met the man that would in a heart beat put his life on the line to protect them and their family, decided in their wisdom to end that soldiers life in the most horrific way they could imagine. Describing those murders as scum or animals doesn't even scratch the surface, and as for doing it in the name of their god, what god would ever want to be associated with dirt like that. Rest In Peace soldier, you no longer have to rub shoulders with evil.
