Endnu en interessant detalje ved Reading-terrorangrebet. Det viser at alle tre ofre var homoseksuelle, og aktive i LGBT-miljøet. Om den ene forlyder det, at han var ‘a strong advocate’ for Black Lives Matter-bevægelsen. Lur mig om ikke de tre hvid mænd deltog i demonstrationen, et par timer før de blev knivstukket af afrikaneren. Politiet spekulerer over et ‘homofobisk motiv’, men det forlyder i øvrigt, at han tidligere er dømt for ‘racially aggravated common assault’. Fra Pink News – Reading terror attack victims were beautiful and proud members of the LGBT+ community who wanted equality for all.

“James Furlong and Joe Ritchie-Bennett were among countless people sat in the park, enjoying the sunny weather as an earlier Black Lives Matter protest petered out, when the assailant began his attack, The Mirror reported. …

Furlong, 36, was a teacher from the Reading area, his family said in a statement issued via the local police agency. … Head of history, government and politics at The Holt School in Wokingham, Furlong was described by loved ones as a strident activist and plank of the LGBT+ community. …

‘James, a proud gay man, wanted equality for all,’ a loved one wrote in a local paper’s condolences book. ‘[He] was at Reading Pride year in year out and was a strong advocate for the [Black Lives Matter] movement.’ …

The second Reading attack victim, Joe Ritchie-Bennett, 39, was an American from Philadelphia who had lived in Britain for the past 15 years and worked at a Dutch pharmaceutical company. His late husband, Ian, 32, died in December 2014…”

“Detectives have not ruled out homophobia as a motive. Saadallah – who was jailed last year for offences including racially aggravated common assault, carrying a bladed article and assaulting an emergency worker – came to the attention of MI5 last year, after they suspected he was planning to travel to Syria for ‘extremist reasons’.” (Daily Mail)
