Police appeal after flare fired at police helicopter

Published

on

Greater Manchester Police continue to appeal for information after a flare was fired at the police helicopter last weekend.

At around 12.15am on Saturday 4 January 2014 a flare was fired directly into the path of the helicopter as it came into land at Barton airfield – the aircrew confirmed that it appeared to come from the site of the nearby protest camp.

Protesters at the camp initially denied having any involvement in this but comments left on a website now contradict this.

Chief Superintendent Mark Roberts said, “This incident last weekend was absolutely ridiculous and could have ultimately have cost lives. Initially a number of people at the camp absolutely refuted that any protesters were involved yet we now have comments left on a website to the contrary.

“We know that there are people within in the camp who have information about this and I would ask that those people now come forward and tell us what they know.

“The policing operation down at Barton Moss is now in its third month and is likely to continue for the next three months. The officers working down there day in day out have built up a good relationship with the majority of the protesters who come and go from the camp but there is a handful of people who seem set on causing as much disruption as possible to local residents and businesses and seeking confrontation with the police.

“The officers working down there day in day out have built up a good relationship with the majority of the protesters who come and go from the camp but there is a handful of people who seem set on causing as much disruption and aggravation as possible.

“The officers are there to do a job and they do that job well. Our job is to facilitate peaceful protest – irrelevant of what that protest is about. A number of protesters are trying to draw officers into this and to make this a fight against the police. This is not our fight and when officers are abused and stupidly threatened with flares this then detracts away from what the majority of the people are protesting about.

“On Sunday we saw around 500, mainly local people, peacefully protesting in the area and not one arrest was made. It is a small number of people, mainly from other areas of the country, who seem to intent on causing this disruption and distraction.”

Since the start of the protest there have been a total of 58 arrests and the total cost of the policing operation stands at £330k.

If anyone does have any information regarding the flare or any other aspects of criminality they are asked to contact 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
