“Ohhhhh myyyy God!!!! I just see a man with his head chopped off right in front of my eyes!” British rapper Boya Dee tweeted moments after the attack took place on Wednesday near the UK military barracks in Woolwich, London.
A suspect with blood-covered hands, brandishing a cleaver and a machete, delivered this disturbing, hateful speech: “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying every day. This British soldier is an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
An eyewitness identifying himself as “James,” fought back tears as he recalled seeing the killers attacking the man “like a piece of meat.”
Boya Dee later described the arrival of armed officers on the scene and a confrontation with the two attackers, one of whom had apparently blown his finger off when his “rusty old revolver” backfired.
“The first guy goes for the female fed (police officer) and she not even ramping (messing around) she took man out like Robocop,” he tweeted.
On Wednesday night, Prime Minister David Cameron vowed that Britain will “never buckle” in the face of terrorist incidents, and condemned the “absolutely sickening” killing in Woolwich.
