(Newser) – Michael Adebolajo, the second suspect in the brutal killing of British soldier Lee Rigby, has been charged with murder. The other suspect in the slaying, Michael Adebowale, had already been charged, but Adebolajo was in hospital receiving treatment for injuries suffered in the attack, and wasn't released until last night. He has also been charged with the attempted murder of two police officers and possession of a firearm, the AP reports. Adebolajo will appear in court on Monday, adds the BBC.

British law is simply inadequate. Even if these Muslim terrorists are convicted of murder, these criminals will simply be imprisoned. Just last week another jailed Muslim attacked one of the guards. Britain, like all civilized states, needs the death penalty to make the enemies of civilization pay for their terrorism.

Islam is the most dangerous religion in the world; they are constantly at war among their own sects (there goes the 'caliphate' ); Obama can say, 'the U.S. is not at war w/Islam' - but they are with the "infadels" . . . and that's anyone who does not accept Islam!

No Guantanamo, no extrajudicial nonsense, no Homeland Security, no World War Three. Just British law, from arrest to court to prison. The Brits keep it in perspective, and you've got to admire that about them.
