BRITISH PM BORIS JOHNSON SAYS ” SYSTEM SIMPLY ISN’T WORKING” IN REGARDS RELEASING TERRORISTS

Boris Johnson said the “system simply isn’t working” after Usman Khan, 28, killed two people and injured three others in a knife rampage before being shot dead on London Bridge yesterday.

The  terrorist Khan had been automatically freed from prison on licence in December 2018, having served just under half his 16-year sentence.

Speaking at the scene on London Bridge England on Saturday, Mr Johnson said: “I’ve argued that when people are sentenced to a certain number of years in prison they should serve every year of that sentence.”

He added: “I’ve said for a long time that I think that the practice of automatic early release  where you cut a sentence in half and let really serious violent offenders out early – simply isn’t working.And I think you have good evidence of how that isn’t working, I’m afraid, with this case.”

When Boris was asked if he could reassure the public that they are safe if other convicted terrorists are out on tag, Boris said: “Well I can tell you that we’ve had a long discussion already today about all those cases and a great deal of work is being done right now to make sure that the public is protected.”
