Grimsby mosque attackers jailed for six years
« on: December 20, 2013, 10:19:24 AM »
Via the BBC:

Two ex-soldiers who firebombed a Grimsby mosque after the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby have each been jailed for six years.

Gavin Humphries, 37, and Stuart Harness, 33, both of Dixon Avenue, Grimsby, admitted the attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre.

No-one was hurt in the attack in May.

In November, a third man, Daniel Cressey, 25, of New Holland, was found guilty of aiding and abetting the arson.

A three-day trial at Grimsby Crown Court heard Cressey had driven the pair to the mosque in Weelsby Road but did not take part in the attack.

The arson took place four days after Fusilier Rigby died outside Woolwich Barracks in London.

Harness and Humphries, both former soldiers, unwittingly recorded themselves making the bombs on cameras set up in Harness's home.

The pair were caught again on CCTV as they carried out the attack on the mosque.

They were sentenced at Hull Crown Court.

Something that didn't get a lot of airplay at the time. I am totally ashamed of both of these soldiers.

First off - you do the job and only the job.

Second off - for god's sakes, didn't they pull some intel first? Knowing where the damned cameras and guards are is the first thing you deal with.
