British MP Jo Cox has died after brutal stabbing & shooting attack - police
Labour MP Jo Cox has died after being shot and stabbed outside her weekly advice surgery in West Yorkshire. A 52-year-old man is being held by police. Cox was shot and stabbed outside Birstall library. She was airlifted to nearby Leeds General Infirmary in a critical condition.["hand made"? Gawd......can we get a photo of that gun, media? Surely the media must have a photo of the "hand made" gun! Otherwise, we might start thinking that professional snipers took the MP out.]
Various eyewitness accounts say the MP was shot during a row with a man. The gun has been described as either antique or hand made.
Some eyewitnesses report the attacker may have targeted Cox deliberately, shooting her up to three times, as well as beating and stabbing her while she was on the ground.
Another man reportedly intervened to help her, and was also injured.
The MP was left lying bloodied on the ground.
Police say they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident, and regard this as a lone attack. A number of areas are still being searched by police.
The Remain and Leave sides are suspending their campaigns for next week's EU referendum following the attack.
On Wednesday, Cox had been tweeting in support of the Remain campaign, of which she is a strong advocate.
Prime Minister David Cameron has cancelled a trip to Gibraltar where he was to attend an anti-Brexit rally.
I'm very suspicious of this tragic event. The timing, the victim, the alleged perpetrator and methodology are all supportive of the meme that needs to be enforced if the current global elite are to remain in control. There is not one aspect of this tragedy that does not fit the agenda. Already, the Media Frenzy is starting...a sure sign.
Sad to see Remainers use Jo Cox's shooting to attack Brexiteers when both sides have suspended campaigning
I will be very interested in learning the background of the murderer. Where did he grow up? Was it near any military bases? Did he spend time in a mental ward in a hospital? Did he have ANY contact with Police or M16?
Hmmmm...in spite of being a "loner" with mental health issues....the gunman carried "a number of weapons, including a firearm" to the ambush. In spite of being knocked to the ground, the gunman managed to get off at least two shots.
Eyewitnesses to the attack told Batley & Birstall News how at one point the gunman was tackled to the floor but managed to fire off at least two shots.
Images purportedly of the arrest show two uniformed officers pinning a man to the ground in a residential area.......
.....West Yorkshire Police said in a statement that they are not looking for anyone else in connection with the crime.
Kind of early days to rule out accomplices....wouldn't you say????
