The mother who took down a terrorist
“I asked him what he had done. He said that he killed the man because (the victim) was a British soldier who killed Muslim women and children in Iraq and Afghanistan. He was furious about the British army being over there.” Kennett’s motherly instincts kicked in and unflustered, she kept talking to the killers trying to keep them calm. One of the men told her that he was going to kill the police when they arrived. Incredibly, while trying to keep him engaged, she asked him if that was reasonable.
Speaking to the other murderer, the mother asked him for the knife in his hand, but he refused to hand it over. She then asked him if he wanted to carry on. He said, “No, no, no. I didn’t want to upset him.” He pointed to the other killer. Kennett kept the killers occupied until police arrived. The police shot the attackers in the legs and took them into custody. They are now reported as alleged terrorists.
