Her deviousness knew no limitsAfter months of planning, Connor launched her first attack on officers in north Belfast on May 16th, 2013. The attack failed, but she staged another attack two weeks later on May 28th.
On that date, police received a phone call from Connor claiming to be a woman called Gemma who was in danger at her home on the Crumlin Road in Belfast.
In a recording of the 999 call, Connor could be heard telling the call-handler: “I need the police. My boyfriend’s just come home and he’s smashing up the house and I don’t know what to do.”
When police responded to the emergency, she hid in a nearby alleyway and threw two blast bombs at them.
The officers escaped injury. Shrapnel from the explosives travelled up to 35m and was found lodged in nearby homes.
She pretended to be this:To make the explosives and fund her campaign, she enlisted the help of an Englishman and an American through social media accounts where she went by a fake name and used photographs of Swedish model Sanne Alexandra Andersson.
As for one of the two dopes who fell for it:It was discovered that she had communicated with both men via her “United Stuggle” Facebook page, which she had created for her one-member republican organisation.
She got 16 years and 4 months and a big surprise today.He took his own life last month.
