Running the son of a bitch over with his vehicle to defend his colleague never occurred to him.

The acting head of the Metropolitan Police locked himself in a car as one of his officers was murdered metres away during the Westminster attack, an inquest has heard.
Sir Craig Mackey was commissioner of Britain’s largest force at the time of the atrocity, where Khalid Masood ran down four victims with his car and stabbed PC Keith Palmer to death.
An inquest into Masood’s death heard that Sir Craig was being driven out of the Houses of Parliament when the attack started on 22 March 2017.
The senior officer, who is now deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, had been to a meeting with the policing minister and recalled being in his “shirt sleeves”.
Sir Craig told the Old Bailey he heard an “abnormally loud bang” that he feared was an explosion before seeing Masood start attacking PC Palmer.
The 52-year-old had crashed his car into railings surrounding parliament after killing four victims with his car on Westminster Bridge, then charged through Carriage Gates armed with two large knives.
“There was quite a lot of confusion about what was going on,” Sir Craig said. “The way that the male came in and the purposeful way he in came, that was a clear threat.”
He recalled locking the doors of his chauffeur-driven car, where neither of the two other people inside had stab vests, any other equipment or a radio to communicate with officers about what was happening.
“A colleague in the car had clearly seen what had gone on as well, and I locked the door,” he added. “I’ve got no protective equipment, no radio … we were in a ministerial meeting and literally came out to that.”
From the car’s passenger seat Sir Craig described seeing “two determined stab wounds”, adding: “I could see PC Palmer moving backwards and him going down.”
Sir Craig, who is to retire in December, said: “The attacker had one of those looks where, if they get you in that look, they would be after you.
……Sir Craig was then driven away and started coordinating the response to the attack, which was initially feared to involve multiple terrorists.
……PC Palmer died at the scene after undergoing emergency surgery and first-aid from paramedics and bystanders, including defence minister Tobias Ellwood. Masood was pronounced dead in hospital later that afternoon.
Britain is in the throes of suicide. It allows violent terrorist muzzie pigs onto its soil, condoning the the carnage, and in the case of Craig, abetted by cowardice. They murder, rape, and commit acts of terrorism with impunity while citizens who speak out against it are censored, harassed, and prosecuted.
Put a gun to your heads, Britain. It’s faster.
