Muhammad Rodwan, 56, launched a ferocious assault on PC Stuart Outten, 29, hacking at him with a 2ft-long rusty blade last August after the officer stopped his passing van because it was not insured.
Shocking footage from the officers body-worn camera shows him fighting for his life after Rodwan leapt on him, stabbing him repeatedly and fracturing his skull.
The PC, later nicknamed Britains bravest policeman, only managed to survive by firing his Taser twice as he fell to the ground with Rodwan coming in for the kill, jurors were told.
Yesterday, there was fury as Rodwan was cleared of attempted murder and only convicted of wounding after it emerged that jurors were not told of his violent past.
It can now be revealed that he is a convicted rapist who has previously been jailed for carrying out an unprovoked machete attack on two other men
The handyman who was previously known as Rodney Reid and lived in his van was jailed for nine years in 1997 for wounding two men in his flat in east London.
Both victims needed surgery following the attack in 1996, with one having almost had his hand chopped off.
In addition, Rodwan had previously been jailed for three years for rape in 1983.
But jurors at the Old Bailey were not told about what prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC described as the strikingly similar machete attack, which he said demonstrated Rodwans propensity for gratuitous violence.
Mrs Justice Carr ruled his past offending was inadmissible due to the passage of time, despite jurors asking if he had previous convictions.

Would the judge’s decision have been the same if the cop had done to Mohammed what Mohammed did to the cop?

soooo- over there- anytime a policeman pulls you over you are free to beat the hell out of them and you’re golden because the police were using ‘excessive force’ for pulling you over?
There is a whole generation of female judges in Britain who seem to get a thrill by batting their eyelashes at violent Moslem criminals.
