    Jo Cox 'hero' Bernard Kenny to receive George Medal posthumously

    The widow of a man who tried to stop the murder of MP Jo Cox is to receive the George Medal on his behalf.
    Bernard Kenny was stabbed as he intervened when Thomas Mair attacked Mrs Cox in Birstall, West Yorkshire in June 2016.

    His widow Doreen Kenny will be present at the investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

    Mair stabbed Mrs Cox, the MP for Batley and Spen, 15 times and shot her three times.

    Mr Kenny was seriously injured in the attack, but the cause of his death was not believed to be related to the incident.

    Get the full story from The BBCHERE




    A well earned reward for bravery. Just a shame that he was not alive to receive it himself.

    It is good to know that the attack on Bernard Kenny did not contribute to his early death.

    A well deserved medal !

    Another ex-British, ( Scottish ), cop has been shot dead as he went about his business in Canada.

    Read this moving epitaph from his colleagues.HERE

    John Davidson:






    Another fine man and a Canadian policeman dies at the hand of a gunman.

    Although this was not America, where guns are rife on the streets, it shows that guns in the hands of criminals are very hard to defend against.

    A fine man and a brave one too.

    What I wonder is, did he have a gun for his own protection as surely the Canadian cops are all armed, are they not ?
