London Police Chief Celebrates Diversity — Of Those Killed In Terror Attack!
Another one from the "You Can't Make This Up" file: Cressida Dick, commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police, says the diversity of those killed in the London Bridge terror attack is "what makes our city so great."
Dick, who took over the department in April, pointed out that the victims were British, French, Australian, Canadian, and Spanish.
"In terms of our witnesses that we've spoken to so far, out of the 300-odd people, there are about 20 different countries of origin. And the London British population comes from all kinds of backgrounds and every kind of faith and ethnicity," she told the Associated Press.
"We believe of course that that's what makes our city so great," she said. "It's a place where the vast majority of time it's incredibly integrated and that diversity gives us strength."
Twitter lit her up, of course.
A couple noted that while the victims may have come from diverse nationalities, the terrorists did not.
