Herbert Thurston

Herbert Henry Charles Thurston was an English priest of the Roman Catholic Church, a member of the Jesuit order, a prolific scholar on liturgical, literary and spiritual matters. In his day, he was regarded as an expert on spiritualism. Today he is remembered chiefly for his extensive contributions to the Catholic Encyclopedia. Herbert Thurston was born in London and educated at Stonyhurst and received his bachelor's degree from London University, he entered the Society of Jesus, was master of Beaumont College from 1880 to 1887. Ordained in 1890, he served as headmaster of Wimbledon College for a single term in 1893-4. Thurston wrote more than 150 articles for the Catholic Encyclopedia, published nearly 800 articles in magazines and scholarly journals, as well a dozen books, he re-edited Alban Butler's Lives of the Saints. Many of Thurston's articles show a skeptical attitude towards popular legends about the lives of the saints and about holy relics. On the other hand, his treatment of spiritualism and the paranormal was regarded as "too sympathetic" by some within the Catholic community.

Father Thurston joined the Society for Psychical Research in 1919, he was a friend of psychical researcher Everard Feilding. Thurston attributed the phenomena of stigmata to the effects of suggestion, he criticized Spiritualism for its confidence. He believed that "some ‘communications’ may originate in the medium’s subconscious, while many alleged communications appear to be self-contradictory."He was a close friend of Father George Tyrrell, a fellow Jesuit priest, harshly sanctioned by the Catholic Church for his Modernist theological opinions. Thurston died in London in 1939.

2016 Russell Square stabbing

On 3 August 2016, a mass stabbing occurred in Russell Square, London. Six people were stabbed, one fatally, before a suspect, identified as Zakaria Bulhan, was apprehended by police and charged with murder and attempted murder; the media linked the stabbing to terrorism, but shifted its focus to possible mental disorders. London's Metropolitan Police Service and London Ambulance Service arrived at the scene of the attacks six minutes after emergency services were called at 22:33. Less than ten minutes a man was arrested at the scene after being tasered by police. Six people selected at random, were stabbed. A 64-year-old American, Darlene Horton, died at the scene, she had planned to fly back to Florida the following day. An American man, a British man, an Australian man, an Australian woman, an Israeli woman were injured; the British man, Bernard Hepplewhite, underwent emergency surgery for a serious abdominal wound and remained in hospital for several days. Zakaria Bulhan was a 19-year-old male Norwegian national of Somali descent.

He was described as a Muslim who "didn't talk about religion." He moved from Norway in 2002, was unemployed and living with his mother and younger brother in Tooting, South London. Not long before the stabbing, Bulhan completed his first studies at South Thames College, had been a patient at a psychiatric facility near Russell Square. According to a family friend, Bulhan called an ambulance three separate times in the last six months, claiming he wanted to harm himself. In his 2017 book, Media and the Somali Conflict, Idil Osman speculates that the "cultural stigma" associated with mental illness in Somali society makes it less that individuals and families of disturbed persons like Bulhan will seek treatment. Following his arrest, Bulhan was treated in hospital and held in custody at a police station in South London. On 5 August, he was charged with the murder of Horton, along with five counts of attempted murder, he appeared at Westminster Magistrates' Court on 6 August. The trial was expected to take place in February 2017.

In February 2017, Bulhan admitted killing US tourist Darlene Horton and injuring five others in Russell Square in 2016. He was sentenced on 7 February to be detained for an indefinite period in a maximum security hospital; the Metropolitan Police said they were exploring terrorism as a possible motive. They said the investigation "increasingly points" to the attack being "triggered by mental health issues", that the stabbings were random. Norwegian police cooperated in the investigation. In an interview after the attack, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said, "London is one of the safest capitals in the world", he added, "It is a reality in 2016 – when you look at what happened in Nice, in Brussels, in Munich, in parts of America – we've always got to be vigilant and never complacent."Kenan Malik described the attack as highlighting "the difficulty... in drawing a distinction between jihadi violence and the fury of disturbed minds." 2015 Leytonstone tube station attack
