Hey UK, how’s that nearly universal disarmament gun control shizz workin’ out for ya?
The 29-year-old continued firing at the officers when they were on the ground and only stopped when his Glock handgun, which had been fitted with an extended magazine was empty.
PC Fiona Bone, 32, was shot eight times as she desperately discharged her Taser weapon, while her colleague 23-year-old Nicola Hughes was also hit eight times.
Before fleeing the scene in a stolen car Cregan, who had been on the run from police for three months left what the prosecution described as his “calling card”, by throwing a hand grenade at the two stricken officers.
It exploded causing further injuries to PC Hughes, but the court heard she was already dead by that point.
Jurors were also told how Cregan, who was wanted at the time for the murders of father and son David and Mark Short, who had been shot in separate attacks in May and August, carefully planned the ambush
Continuing to outline the prosecution case on day two of the trial at Preston Crown Court, Nicholas Clarke QC said: “Cregan’s carefully laid plan had been successful. He had lured two unarmed officers to his door and he was armed, ready and waiting for them.”
He went on: “As Nicola and Fiona walked through the small front garden, he opened the front door and immediately fired his Glock. Both officers were shot to the chest. The body armour that they were wearing protected them and the bullets did not penetrate. Examination of the scene after the event shows that after the first shots both officers made a tactical retreat. As they retreated more shots were fired. Nicola Hughes was shot just below her armoured vest in the middle of her back causing her to fall forwards paralyzed onto the path. As she was falling or lying flat on her stomach she was shot three more times.”
Mr Clarke said Cregan then turned his attention to PC Bone who was trapped in front of the lounge window in the garden.
He said Cregan fired 24 bullets at her as she desperately tried to discharge her taser weapon.
She did manage to fire the Taser but only into the concrete path.
The court heard that Cregan then left the scene in a stolen BMW car.
Mr Clarke told the jury: “Before he fled Abbey Gardens he made sure that he left his usual calling card. He launched another military fragmentation grenade back towards the garden of number 30, where the two police officers were lying on the floor.
“This exploded causing further injuries to Nicola, who was nearest to the grenade. She had already been fatally injured by the gunshot wounds inflicted upon her. The grenade did not cause or contribute to her death.”
It is alleged Cregan then drove directly to Hyde Police station where he calmly told the officer at the front desk: “I’m wanted by the police and I’ve just done two coppers.”
I’m sure the Lord Mayor of London is convinced that the Glock and the grenades came in from South Carolina where such things are easily available like NYC Mayor Bloomberg says.
Most likely the “Grapes” came from a source in the IRA, who are well stocked with such toys but keep a low profile these days.
Well, now, it sounds like they’ve just about got it figured out. I mean, it doesn’t happen that often, right? Gawd, how long before the good people wake up and realize they’re being used as fodder, sacrificed to “diversity” (it’s our greatest strength, you know /sarc)? Maybe the UKIP can get the juice to rearm the public; they’re going to need it. I know, I can dream…
Just certain parts. Arm the wogs and the gollys and all hell breaks loose, always.
Grenades are also coming in from Bulgaria & other Eastern European “hotspots”. Gangs from the Ukraine, Latvia and Lithuania are filling England & Ireland with trafficed prostitutes, heavy drugs and massive amounts of weapons.
The police seem impotent in stopping these bad-boys.
Another favorite is procuring Blondie Latvian, Lithuanian and other slavic young women to travel to Britian and Ireland for “arrainged” marriages to Pakistanis, Afghans, Saudis and other Muslim men so they can attain “legal” residency in the European Union.
Both Ireland and the UK are toilets that need to be flushed on a regular basis. But due to the Liberal P.C. brigade it ain’t gonna happen.
Hmm… I have some Ukrainians across the street…
I went by the local Grenades R Us outlet here in SLC but they were fresh out.
God save us from moontards and fuckbats.
