BARNES: MUSLIM PATROL BANNED FROM PROMOTING ISLAMIC LAW

HACKNEY, WHITECHAPEL Three religious vigilantes who terrorised innocent members of the public as the self-styled 'Muslim Patrol' have been banned from promoting Sharia Law in Britain. Jordan Horner, 20, Royal Barnes, 23, and Ricardo MacFarlane, 26, were jailed for a total of two years and ten months for touring east London harassing people they deemed to be ‘non-believers’. The three men were today (Fri) slapped with a five-year Asbo banning them from distributing material about Sharia Law to the public, or even meeting each other. The trio are also prohibited from associating with controversial preacher Anjem Choudary. Judge Timothy Pontius admitted the order was ‘drastic’ but added: ‘With the public interest in mind and the safety of individual members of the public in particular, it seems to me essential that these orders should be granted to run for that period of time.’ The leader of the gang, white Muslim convert Horner, who has declared he wants Sharia Law in the UK, attacked people drinking in the street and demanded: 'Remove yourselves now. Muslim Patrol.’

BARNES: MUSLIM TERRORIST FACES SIX YEARS OVER RIGBY MURDER

WOOLWICH/HACKNEY A Muslim extremist linked to Woolwich killer Michael Adebowale is facing up to six and a half years in jail today (Weds) for glorifying the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in a series of YouTube videos. Royal Barnes, 23, was filmed by his veil-wearing wife Rebekah Dawson, 22, laughing hysterically as he drove past the scene of the attack. Dawson later deliberately attempted to undermine the justice system by refusing to remove her veil in court in a separate case, causing nationwide controversy. Her husband had ridiculed the memorial flowers left by friends, family and members of the public for Drummer Rigby and described the murder as 'absolutely brilliant'. In other videos posted on YouTube in the days after the killing, both Barnes and Dawson boasted that Sharia Law would be imposed on the UK and British women would be forced to wear the hijab.
