Skip to comments.Woolwich attack: Watch shocking video of terrorists charging at police car to try to kill WPC

'This is the moment two terrorists who butchered soldier Lee Rigby also tried to kill a hero woman cop who was first on the scene of the carnage.
Shocking footage obtained by the Daily Mirror shows how the calculating pair lured officers to the scene by dragging the body into the middle of the road and brazenly waiting for armed police to arrive.
When the first police car arrived the pair split up in a pre-planned manoeuvre with knife-wielding Michael Adebolajo charging them head-on, while his accomplice ran up alongside, aiming his revolver at them.
The film of the 10 seconds of terror show how Adebolajo got within TWO FEET of the terrified female cop who was driving the armed response vehicle.
She was armed with just a Taser as she sat in the drivers seat of the BMW X5 and was only saved when a male colleague sitting in the back made a split-second decision to fire his machine-gun from point blank range through the window.
As he is sent sprawling to the ground by the force of the two shots and the two cops jump out to cover him they appear to fail to spot the other suspect aiming his hand gun at them.
Luckily a third SO19 marksman running round from the far side of the specialist Trojan unit spots him and he is brought to the ground as a further volley of six shots ring out in the suburban street in Woolwich, south east London.'

I wonder if Bruce Springsteen will write a song about this matter.
Female cop armed with a taser . . . good thinking . . . that’ll stop a bullet . . . I just can’t imagine the stupidity surrounding this terrorist attack . . .
“...made a split-second decision to fire his machine-gun from point blank range through the window”
Maybe Danny Glover will hold a candlelight vigil.
> machine-gun?? <
Well, yes, those black scary things that fire, well, huge clips!
The sound tells the story, I think.
As they say, never bring a knife to a gun fight.
Two thumbs up.
Every American knows that most British police are not armed, at least I thought every American knew.
As the driver of an armed unit, she will be armed with a taser, as the rest of the unit in her vehicle are armed to the teeth. I will try and find out exactly what arms she carries.
And ‘terrified’. Tabloid nonsense, this woman is a highly trained officer, member of one of the UK’s premier police units.
Its a low-rent tabloid.
She appeared to also have a gun, as far as terrified, training as a city cop doesn’t exactly turn you into commando material, she very well may have been terrified.
Why are we hearing that the two demons were only shot in the legs and will survive?
They should have been turned into Swiss cheese.
The guy who fired the machine gun is the hero, no?
My eyes and ears are getting old along with the rest of me, but the video seems to show a semi automatic handgun. The audio supports my assumption. I’ve seen and heard machine guns and that wasn’t it.
...hero woman cop who was first on the scene of the carnage... knife-wielding Michael Adebolajo... got within TWO FEET of the terrified female cop who... was armed with just a Taser... was only saved when a male colleague sitting in the back made a split-second decision to fire his machine-gun from point blank range through the window... the two cops... appear to fail to spot the other suspect aiming his hand gun at them. Luckily a third SO19 marksman running round from the far side of the specialist Trojan unit spots him...
If O’bama had a son....
These police are very highly trained. Many cross train with the British military.
If you aren’t terrified by a blood-spattered knife-wielding muslim lunatic whose just killed someone rushing at you you aren’t right in the head.
