Our poll shows that 93% of people don’t care about what happens to the two suspected murderers.

Yesterday (23rd July) we created a poll on one of our Facebook pages, Emergency Services Humour (245,000 followers) and asked if our followers cared about what happened to the ‘Beatles’ duo.
We didn’t ask specifically about the death penalty (should the pair get convicted) – instead it was a general question in relation to the fate of the two former Daesh members and whether or not people actually cared what happened to them.
For those who do not know, the pair, who have previously been given a platform on various news channels in order to try and vocalise their alleged despicable behaviour (which, in my opinion, should never have been allowed to happen) are alleged to have been involved in the BEHEADING of various UK and US citizens – including aid workers.
The unanimous result of the poll showed that 93% of people DO NOT CARE what happens to the pair – they simply don’t care about where they are sent in order to face trial for their alleged crimes against humanity, or about what punishment they could face if found guilty.
So why are some sections of the civilian media still trying to make out that the majority of people DO care what happens to the duo?
Is it because this is a ‘contentious’ subject and is therefore guaranteed to generate more website traffic which will equate to more Ad revenue?
And why do we have to listen to organisations such as Amnesty International on TV who are obviously going to try and ‘speak out’ against the two alleged murderers potentially facing the death penalty if they are convicted?
Of course, we are each entitled to an opinion, but instead of only airing the views of Amnesty International, who, in the main, do some fantastic work, why not also speak to organisations who are 100% for the pair being put to trial in the US?
Why is the news agenda on such matters as this one always so one-sided and non-reflective of what the majority of the general public actually feel and think!?

It pained me to watch a ‘debate’ in the House of Commons yesterday, where some politicians were talking about ‘British values’ and how such ‘values’ mean that we are morally ‘above’ alleged terror suspects who commit some of the most despicable and disgusting acts known to humanity.
Why are we speaking about morals, when talking about individuals who took pleasure in beheading people for no other reason than to film the horrific acts in order to ‘scare’ millions of people!?
And yet, our snap poll shows that over 90% of people DO NOT CARE what happens to the two brainwashed murderers – they simple could not give two foxtrots.
Is it just another case of political point scoring just for the sake of political point scoring without actually representing the position of the majority of the electorate?
Something else that the mainstream media conveniently managed to leave out of the debate, was the fact that our Government has removed the British citizenship of these two alleged murderers – and we 100% applaud that decision.
The two aren’t even British Citizens – so whats the problem? Do you think that they cared about their British citizenship when they signed up to an organisation that murders women and children or that uses them as human shields!?
Of course they didn’t – in fact, they are probably laughing at the fact that ‘we’ are trying to stop them facing the same fate that they bestowed on their victims.
We also applaud the decision of the Home Secretary, Sajid Javid, for not seeking assurances from our US colleagues that, if convicted, then the pair would not face the death penalty.
When Politicians speak of ‘British values’ then surely they are referring to the right of people to go about their business without the threat of being blown up just because they happen to live in this country?
Sajid Javid has not said that the UK Governments’ general policy has changed, in relation to seeking assurances that BRITISH CITIZENS (which these two are not) will not face the death penalty, instead, he has made a decision that, IN THIS CASE, no such assurances will be sought.
We should be celebrating these sort of case-by-case decision making process because each and every case is different.

In my experience of being in the security services, there is a minimal chance of ‘rehabilitating’ someone who has been brain washed into believing that murdering, in cold blood, their fellow humans is going to gain them a ‘fast-track’ to paradise.
Politicians are always telling us that they listen to ‘the people’.
Well, the people, in this case, have confirmed that 93% of ‘us’ DO NOT CARE what happens to the two evil and twisted individuals who are alleged to have used a serrated knife in order to behead aid workers and journalists who were trying to report to the world what was really happening during the short existence of daesh.
We should be applauding the hard-line approach of the Home Secretary in sending a message to ANYONE who is thinking of murdering their fellow humans in cold blood that their sick and twisted ideology is NOT WELCOME in our society, and that such individuals will be afforded NO PROTECTION from the British Government.
We should also be applauding the Home Office for stripping the British citizenship of these two traitors, who decided to go and join an organisation that murdered innocent men, women and children in the name of a peaceful religion that they have so wilfully and abhorrently hijacked.
And let us not forget, that these two are alleged to have been implicated in the death of US citizens – so America has every right to exercise its own judiciary process when trying to get justice for those poor souls who were beheaded at the hands of evil and deranged murderers.
After all, was it not the Americans who managed to capture the pair as they tried to flee the evil house that they helped to build?
Who is say what carnage could have been unleashed by these two, had they of managed to escape the forces which were hunting them down?
Instead of the media and some politicians trying to ‘stick up’ for two alleged cold-blooded, evil and twisted murderers, why not instead try and ‘stick up’ for vulnerable people who really do need the help of the state?
