A shocking attack on a Labour Member of Parliament in Britain has left the lawmaker dead and a nation wondering the reason. The assailant shouted "England First" , perhaps a reference to the upcoming vote on whether to leave the European Union.
MP Jo Cox was a 42 year old mother of two. She was shot three times and stabbed with a hunting knife before the killer kicked her body while on the roadway near her constituent office.
This is the kind of incident that will ripple across the pond as it was so brazen, somewhat reminiscent of the Gabby Giffords shooting.
