This incident illustrates, if nothing else, the endpoint of the social engineering of the West. Â It has been remarkably effective. From a certain point of view the British crowd behaved perfectly and this is the way â€œtheyâ€ all want us to behave. The populace sheltered in place, didnâ€™t do anything rash, talked to the perpetrators as people. They waited for the police to come and the hospital helicopter to take the corpse away. Some will doubtless get counseling to overcome their shattering experience.
