Voodoo ex-nurse jailed for inciting hatred against police and applauding acts of terrorism, in Folkestone

By Sean Axtell

A voodoo practicing ex-nurse is behind bars for inciting violence against the police and congratulating the killer of murdered policeman Keith Palmer.

Sai Kurn Lee set up Facebook account ‘Cop Killers’, to unleash a slew of public messages praising acts of terrorism and calling on the police “to die”, from August last year to March.

Neil Sweeney, prosecuting, read out the Facebook comments in full, at Folkestone Magistrate’s Court today.

He told Magistrates how on March 22 this year, Lee wrote a message saying: "Good riddance to the police scum stabbed to death in London today, you got exactly what you deserved you piece of s***.

“You deserve a toast to your death.”

The rambling also included messages such as: ‘The only good cop is a dead cop’, ‘all police are vermin and should be exterminated’, ‘good riddance to the police’ and ‘death to Kent Police’.

Lee also praised the hit and run maniac who mowed down two police officers in Glasgow last year, saying they "deserved a pat on the back".

Mr Sweeney added when police arrested Lee at his home address in Green Fields, Sellinge, there was a satanic emblem on the wall with a knife laying beside it.

He added in interviews with Kent Police last year Lee said he was depressed following a previous charge for common assault.

Officers also discovered a knife and some nun-chucks at his property Green Fields, in Sellinge.

Defending, Kate Hunter, said Lee had suffered ‘mental health problems’ after losing his job as a nurse-trainer in south Kent.

She also called for a pre-sentencing mental health assessment, which District Judge Baron refused.

He said: “Mr Lee, having heard these comments I shudder.

“They are horrific and amount to inciting violence that can’t be tolerated.”

Lee recently moved in with his girlfriend in Sotherton, Willesborough, Ashford.

Dressed in black and with her face painted white, she could be could be seen sobbing and rocking in public gallery.

Lee was handed 31 week prison sentence, including 14 weeks for breaching a suspended sentence and 17 weeks for the 'cop killer' account.

He was also fined £115, to be deducted from his Jobseeker's Allowance on prison release.
