Disarmed Heroes Fought Terrorism on London Bridge

Written by Joe Scudder

A Christian bouncer was one of the disarmed heroes who fought with bottles and bar stools.

It turns out that there were disarmed heroes who saved lives from the London Bridge terrorists. Of course, they were disarmed by their own government. Even the police are disarmed! For that reason, there is something a little sad about these stories because, if the government wouldn’t demand that British residents be vulnerable, then these heroes might have been even more effective in fighting terrorists and saving lives.

The Sun reports, “‘MY DADDY’S A HERO’ London Bridge attack hero doorman’s family of say his ‘hands were bruised from fighting’ terrorists after he saved countless lives.

Ozzy, a 33-year-old doorman who works at the Wheatsheaf pub in Borough Market, led a brave charge against the maniacs, despite fearing they had suicide bomb vests, after seeing them repeatedly knifing a woman.

[…]

The dad of one, from Earl’s Court, West London, said: “I heard a serious amount of screaming and commotion coming from the street.

“Me and a few of the doormen went to see what had happened. We saw three guys in camouflage trousers stabbing this woman.

“They were all surrounding her and knifing her repeatedly . . . about ten times. They suddenly looked up and started running towards other individuals.”

Ozzy, understood to be a Pentecostal Christian, initially fled before doubling back.

He told a friend: “I realised I had to do something. If I hadn’t turned back there were so many people caught up in the panic there would have been more hurt.

“Me and another guy started launching bar stools, bottles and glasses at them to try and disrupt them.

[…]

A close friend of the bouncer, who has worked at Borough Market for six years, said he was “really shaken up” after the attacks.

The woman told The Sun Online: “I saw him yesterday and his hands were bruised from fighting off the terrorists.

“It’s not in Ozzy’s nature to run away. I knew he would have done whatever he could to help.”

The Sun article reports several other stories of disarmed heroes who fought terrorists and saved lives during the London Bridge attack.
