London Police Question Sketchy Guy With Backpack Full of Machetes – Perhaps He’s an Industrious Gardener…

Random video footage surfaces showing heavily-armed London police stopping a sketchy fellow and checking his backpack in east London on Monday – barely a day after the London Bridge attack.

According to video loader – The incident occurred on a side street near East Ham on Monday.Β  The footage shows six police officers surrounding the man before opening his duffel bag (backpack) to reveal several machetes in a plastic bag.


Perhaps he’s just an industrious gardener with a jungle in his apartment. Non pixilated version below via twitter video.


2015 […] The Labour mayoral hopeful said he would do everything within his power to continue the reduction of the policing tool. In London stop and search has fallen by 54 per cent since 2010, but the use of a more intelligence-led, targeted approach has led to thousands more arrests.

Tooting MP Mr Khan, pictured, also pledged to strengthen rules that prevent officers stopping people simply on the basis of their skin colour, by changing the law to make it illegal. He said: β€œThe last few years have shown what can be achieved when there’s a concerted effort to reduce the overuse of stop and search.

β€œBut there’s still much more to be done, and if I’m Mayor I’ll do all in my power to further cut its use. Overuse of stop and search can have a dramatic effect on communities. It undermines public confidence in our police if Londoners are being stopped and searched for no good reason.”  (read more)

      How many times will you post this? This has to be about the 7th time I have seen you post the exact same thing.

      Again, the regular police are not and never will be armed.

      They have specialist police who are heavily armed and respond as needed. Case in point the guy on the bus with 3 machetes – heavily armed cops took him. Response to terror on London Bridge was via heavily armed specialist police.



      Is this policy written in stone? Can they decide to change this ridiculous policy? Who in their right mind would want to be a cop in London.

Per “Bringing Calm to Chaos” Police Foundation dated September 9, 2016 and Wikipedia: It actually took three minutes and 32 seconds for the first police unit to respond to the shooting following the initial 9-1-1 emergency call. Two police officers with the San Bernardino Police Department (SBPD) arrived almost simultaneously at 11:04 a.m.; when two other SBPD officers arrived two minutes later.

            Our SWAT team was training at the Arrowhead Springs Hotel. They arrived minutes later.

    • Hello All
      Not to worry it is good all the way around. First this young individual is not a misguided jihadi. He is just trying to start the London chapter of MS13 and we can help him. MS-13 is a misunderstood social club with fondness for aerobic exercise with machetes and an entrepreneurial focus relate to pharmaceutical distribution and human relations endeavors. Recently AG Sessions has been helping the young folk relocate back to their home turf (woops, homeland) of El Salvador. A problem is that El Salvador is having difficulty absorbing so much young energetic talent. PDJT now has the unique business opportunity to help both the mayor of London and the country of El Salvador. I am sure this will be supported by all of those bridge builders out there. Just fly US based MS-13 members to London (one way of course, really would not be fair to charge mayor Khan for round trip transportation). Now the mayor may also have to pay some additional handling charges but it will greatly increase the diversity of London. I am sure that is really all he is concerned with after all he has shown he is all into welcoming immigrants of all faiths, colors and creeds. Plus he gains access to a gang (woops, social club) with a proven track for bring change to urban environments. El Salvador gets the pleasure of seeing these these young entrepreneurs experience a different culture almost a world away. Of course with PDJT being the business man that he is, El Salvador may need to pay the US a small transit fee for facilitating the deal, maybe the individuals shipping weight in coffee beans.Some might ask can these young folk adapt to such a different culture? Well England already has an MI5 and an MI6 so MS-13 should fit right in (some might even say at this point what difference would it make) plus the environment is so safe most of the law enforcement don’t even carry guns. How will the locals adjust to some of those wacky customs of our boys from El Salvador? Well as the great Khan has already said that would just be part and parcel of living in a major city. Before anyone pooh-poohs the idea as a vain attempt to win the honorary cathy griffin Unity Through Career Death Award, just remember that PDJT’s predecessor cut a similar deal with the Australian Prime Minister to obtain some high skilled surplus refugees that Australia was vacationing on one of their islands. Now turn about is only fair.

      Pakistani’s are famous for the knives they make. Those machetes were likely made in a local metalwork shop right there in London. When I lived in London, the Paki’s as we used to call them used to make some seriously deadly knives from old saw blades.


  6. What will the bbc say about this one? “Oh, no worries, it’s just Edward Machetehands, kind of a gas, eh? Those bobbies are making way too much out of nothing and violating the man’s rights…”

    I have overheard a couple of people lately expressing their “shock” that a moslem mayor in Londonistan is actively expressing the “refugees welcome” sign. There isn’t much hope for anyone that confused about the obvious… half the world or more is simply ridiculously willfully ignorant through their social manipulations and indoctrination, and a good portion of those who aren’t just ain’t too bright.

    The mayor is a big part of the problem as he is a muslim and thinks muslims should be there to obviously murder the English so less resistance in fully taking over the country for the caliphate. Mayor also thinks these terrorist attacks are nothing to worry about, just get used to it. this is what happens when guns (just old hunting guns) are not allowed,and there has even been talk of no more hammers (up to now the #1 murder weapon), and knives, even your kitchen knives and eating knives. Yep, let’s go back to the Middle Ages where the English are slaves (if not all dead) while the muslims and ignorant English leaders?? stand by and wish the muslims love! Unfortunate to say, but they deserve all that is happening to them the same as the French,and it will be spreading even more rapidly now to all the EU open border countries. Meanwhile Soros and family are enjoying this as it worked for Germany during WWII. Ruin their economy, take away weapons, brainwash them that all is hunky dory, and then pounce! Soros has already done it more than once, and now we can watch the whole thing happening to all countries in the EU. No cojones nor brains to stop their being killed and overtaken! A tragedy that even Shakespeare could never have written about. Well, we won’t be submissive here and are ready to do what has to be done!

      I predict the same thing. There is no way out for them short of emergency deportations now or paying the price later. Islam does NOT stop.

      From January 2016:

      Muslims in UK top 3 million for first time… with over 50% born outside Britain: Number in country doubles in a decade as immigration and birth rates soar

      “New figures published for the first time this month show that the rise has continued, with a record 3,046,607 Muslims across England and Wales in 2014 – representing 5.4 per cent of the population.”

      That’s a big deal because they are over 5% in England and Wales. The percentage they usually use is for “Great Britain” or the “United Kingdom” and is lower because of the increased areas – The United Kingdom (UK) comprises four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. But they are primarily invading England and Wales. So more Muslims in a smaller area.

      65.14 million (2015) United Kingdom, Population
      53.01 million (2011)England, Population
      3.063 million (2011) Wales, Population

      So they now have a “Muslim Wales” by population numbers.

      It gets worse. They jumped by 75% in only a decade. And that’s not including the recent Merkel Muslim invaders.

      “But by 2011, the Muslim population of England and Wales was 2,706,066 – representing 4.8 per cent of the overall number. As the ONS noted, this represented a 75 per cent jump in the space of a decade.”

      “In the East London borough of Tower Hamlets the proportion stood at 45.6 per cent in 2014, while in neighbouring Newham it is 40.8.

      Muslims account for 29 per cent of the population in Blackburn; 26 per cent in Slough; 25.7 per cent in Luton; 23 per cent in Birmingham; 20 per cent in Leicester; and 18 per cent in Manchester.”

    Several years ago three friends of mine and I were in England for a class and went sight seeing in London on our last day there. We decided to ride the London Eye so we got in line and there was a security check prior to boarding. Like all good prudent American men we all had small pocket knives on us that immediately became an issue. The police ended up confiscating my friends knives because they were lock-back and were told they could be arrested. They reluctantly gave me mine back because it wasn’t a lock-back (Leatherman). The moral of the story is that if you are in London only carry a machete.


  39. It is certain that Khan has dual citizenship (if he is citizen of GB) with Pakistan. Lot of Pakistanis here have dual (Pakistan+U.S.) or triple (Pakistan + U.S. + Canada) citizenship – and believe it or not they work on AFB and other places that requires security clearance. I do not know what the constitution says, but I wonder how many of our representatives / government bureaucrats (cough cough Val Jarret) are dual citizens and in high places.
    Considering we are GB’s greatest ally, it will be interesting to see what is the end game of Khan since he does not hide is hate towards our President. It cannot be cultural since Al-Sisi, the highest representative of state of Egypt always uses “His Excellency” for our President. I am not suggesting that he should roll over and boot-lick our President but he is definitely not using common sense when reacting to our President’s suggestion to use common sense.
