2:35 am
that would lead to martyrdom. >> it would appear the attackers wanted to be martyrs. and one way to guarantee matters is to wear a suicide vest or what appears to be a suicide vest so police take lethal action. >> neighbors told abc news the dead terrorist is of pakistani descent. a father with a toddler. his wife pregnant. he is known for radical views. complaining his local mosque was not devout. >> it was not a good mosque. that was not following the really -- >> not muslim enough. >> not following the religions, muslim. >> reporter: the bbc broadcast an interview with the neighbor, identity concealed. who said he was so concerned about the man he called authorities. >> i did my bit. i know a lot of people did. but the authorities didn't do their bit. >> with more than 3,000 potential terrorists on british watch lists, authorities say, they simply cannot track every suspect, or stop every attack.

2:38 am
you definitely want to run and get out of the way if you are near a terrorist attack or this situation. if you can run away, great. then you want to tell somebody. if you want hide, if you can't run, you can hide, then, that's great too. and then if you have ability to call somebody again that is great. but if you can't run. you can't hide. you need to be prepared to fight. and not be prepared to call somebody. you have to be looking for a chair, a trash can, something that they were talking about in this situation. and be prepared to now take out the, the terrorist, with whatever means necessary. but, you know you can worry about calling somebody later. you got to fight first if you can't run and hide. >> steve gomez. there are many people who did fight back. >> sure, they used everything from chairs to pint glasses to fight back. >> many, many ways. this one scene has gone viral since the attack. this man -- >> he obeyed the run part of the instructions only, watch carefully what he its holding in his hands. he still has his pint full of beer.

3:07 am
the encryption is the biggest problem that law enforcement is facing right now. the former fbi director james comey talked about this before. it actually has an initiative name for it going dark. basically describing how they are not able to intercept the communications on these types of devices and platforms. that is a huge problem for law enforcement in trying to thwart the activities of terrorists. >> we're not talking the likes of facebook or whatsapp or how these people might be communicating, just to be sure? >> exactly. exactly. whatsapp, viper. there are various others. the biggest problem is these are being created outside of the u.s. and with the encryption and when you try to get a court order to obtain the messages and get past the encryption, you're getting a lot of pushback from these companies. >> i see. i see. >> people like to have their own privacy but when it falls in the wrong hands then we want more information. >> yes. >> this all took eight minutes from the first call to the conclusion, as far as counterterrorism operation goes.
3:08 am
impressive response? >> very impressive, especially in light of the fact that many of these officers aren't even armed. i would have to assume that they had ready access to the weaponry that were used when they deployed and approached the suspects and then neutralized them with shots fired. >> one phrase that's coming out a lot in all of this is run, hide, tell. some in london are saying that that actually saved lives in the wake of this recent attack, but we here heard it as run, hide, fight. why the difference between how they do this in the uk and the u.s.? >> i think there's just a piece of clarification that has to be discussed. you definitely want to run and get out of the way if you're near a terrorist attack or this kind of situation. if you can run away, great. then you want to tell somebody. if you can hide, if you can't run and you can hide, then that's great, too. and then if you have the ability to call somebody, again, that is great. but if you can't run and you can't hide, you need to be prepared to fight and not be prepared to call somebody.
3:09 am
you have to be looking for a chair, a trash can, something they were talking about in this situation and be prepared now to take out the terrorist with whatever means necessary. you know, you could worry about calling somebody later, but you have to fight first if you can't run and hide. >> yeah. in this case, many patrons did and used their pint glass to fight back. so they got the message one way or the other. >> exactly. >> abc contributor steve gomez. steve, thanks so much for joining us. always great to get your perspective. other major headlines to talk about this morning. back on the home front. duelling protests resulting in more than a dozen arrests in portland, oregon. several hundred supporters of president trump rallied in support of free speech. at the same time, hundreds of others were demonstrating for immigrant rights and other causes. there was a strong police presence as you can see on the streets and there were some clashes. reported a group of anti-fascist, clad in black. also demonstrated. police say they seized several
