After retreating to the garage behind the home of Nazir’s parents, Awan celebrated by yelling “Cherish the blood.” Police recordings, after the thugs were taken into custody, show that “Nazir discussed how the third knife wound had split Ross’ neck completely open.” Of course, in open court, the Islamists denied having stabbed Ross. They were given bail and released from police custody. Complaints by Ross’ family to the British Home Secretary, David Blunkett, went unanswered.
In December 2002, Shaied Nazir, Sarfraz Ali, and Ahmed Ali Wan were sentenced to life imprisonment, with minimum prison terms that ranged from 16-18 years in jail (the oxymorons of the criminal justice system apparently are at work in the UK just as in America). The families of the murderers made a scene in court when sentence was passed down, claiming their loved ones would never do such a thing. The fourth defendant, Zairaff Mahrad, was acquitted.
September 11, 2001 made the bond between the United States and the United Kingdom even stronger. The World Trade Center attacks was not only the worst terrorist attack in American history but it was the worst terrorist attack in the history of the United Kingdom.
Sixty-seven British subjects were killed on September 11. 10 days later, Ross Parker would join his fellow, fallen British; British who died because of Islamic hatred. Very soon his murderers, motivated by religion, could be free ostensibly because they are supposedly rehabilitated. They come up for parole in 2018 and 2020
