An Islamist terrorist, Sudesh Amman, was shot dead by police on 02/02/2020 after he stabbed two members of the public in a busy London High Street. Amman was wearing a fake suicide vest. The incident occurred ten days after Amman's statutory early release from prison.
From the Telegraph Online, 3rd February 2020:
Haleema Faraz [Amman's mother] today revealed that she visited her son at his bail hostel on Thursday after he was released from prison early for distributing terrorist documents.

But surely someone checks this stuff before it's posted, don't they?
Um...that has to be a no, then.
Word To Use Today: terror. This word comes from the Greek word trein, to run away in terror.
