You have to be kidding me.......

The guy must have had some serious mental problems.

''The assault lasted several minutes near the Hampstead Theatre in Belsize Park. The attacker ignored his victim's screams and the pleas of two women passers-by and workmen. He stopped when police arrived. He then put down the axe near the body. He was described as looking "emotionless and cool" throughout.''

OH, NO!! They let just anyone walk into a hardware store over there in England and let them walk out with an ax or hatchet! No background checks, nothing! It's time we outlaw sharp objects! They all should be banned, the just project violence!  sarcastic

I'm not surprised, there is a hell of a lot of crime in London. There are also some really mad people out there, such as the murderer here.

My condolences go towards this persons family and friends.

Well, we'd love to get some meaningful laws passed but you would not believe the lobbying power of the National Sharp Objects Association and their celebrity spokespeople. They even resist efforts to ban the fully automatic assault axes.

You clearly need tighter controls on posession of sharp implements. I say start by registering everything down to pointy sticks and then start rounding up anything that could potentially be used to draw blood.

Sooner or later you will have crazies assaulting each other with nerf footballs.

Would you walk up to an axe-bearing lunatic you saw hacking away at somebody while you were taking your kids to school?

This is a terrible tragedy...and as for the pseudo-gun-control feud going on here, it's tasteless and rude, so knock it off and start a new thread to discuss that. This isn't the place for it.

We're talking people in cars, construction workers, etc. How old are the kids? But yeah if I was without kids I'd tackle the guy. As intent on his victim as it appears he was, a guy could blind side him pretty easy.

A car makes a pretty good weapon in a situation like this BTW

Seems like a random attack, I mean how many many times do you hear about people hacking victims to death with an axe in the UK.  sarcastic 

People on here would have you think it was as common as gun crime in the US, lets not pretend this kind of thing happens every day in London, not that i'm a fan of the place.

This must be some kind of sick joke. There is no way a legitimate news company would show the body of a decapitated man without alerting his family first.

This must be some kind of hoax news site.

It's not, shocking as it is the BBC are reporting it although without the photo. The website showing the picture, hosted by the Daily Mail, are however never one to miss a chance miss the shock factor.

The fact that the drugs-sex-violence-and-(ocasionally)-Nazi-hating Mail proudly displays the picture say it all really.

As for the 'argument' above, some might be interested to know that there is a strong lobby for new knife control laws - a Bill is expected soon.

Oh please... it's a picture taken for a distance. All you see is a "mound" that looks like a body. You can't identify anyone.

At least we have private citizens packing, so hopefully someone can stop such a thing.

Remember the cops only show up AFTER

I say England needs to ban all knives now, there is no reason why anybody should be able to own a short handle, easily concealable hatchet or a military style bayonet.

Granted, but we don't know for sure how intent he was...and perhaps he was so intent that he'd hack away anyone who'd try to stop him. Using a car is risky since there's a chance of adding further physical trauma to the victim.

Regardless of that though, this is a shocking tragedy. One has to be truly perturbed to just so calmly and without emotion cut someone down with an axe.

I figuring after a hack or two he was probably done anyways. I'd be more worried about getting the blood off my car.
