THE LAW GETS IN THE WAY
From the BBC website:
"Members of the public called an anti-terrorism hotline after he expressed the views that
"he was supporting terrorism" and "being a suicide bomber was ok.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Abedi was known up to a point by security services ... Abedi was one of a larger pool of former subjects of interest,
whose risk remained subject to review by security services."
What was that point, exactly?
The British authorities knew about the Manchester bomber but, they also had to stick to the law. Who wants the world accusing the police, or the government of human rights abuse?
Our military in Argentina did not mind the law or anyone's human rights. They declared martial law, arrested people at any time for no reason, and figured it out later. Some were freed, many were tortured, executed and made to disappear.
To observe the law and to respect human rights can be an obstacle that enables atrocities such as the Manchester bombing.
