Radicalized Muslim Convert + Gunless Cops = Standoff

Muslim convert brings knife to .... fistfight?

The mother of a Muslim convert who allegedly went on a knife rampage in a busy street described today how he had been changed by religion.

The suspect was heard chanting about killing “non-believers” shortly before it is alleged that he launched a frenzied knife attack on police officers near Clapham Junction station.

Armed with four knives, the 31-year-old caused terror and panic among shoppers and pedestrians as he ran amok for more than 20 minutes before being brought down by police Tasers.

I've never understood the British when it comes to guns. I was talking to a cop one day in the UK and just the word "gun" seems to make them uncomfortable. You would have thought I had asked him whether or not he'd been molested as a child. I'd say gun is a four letter word in the UK, except that in some parts of Britain f*ck seems to be the only adjective in their entire vocabulary.

So, gun is worse than a four letter word in the UK.

And having successfully rid most of the island of the dreaded g-word, the police turned to more pressing matters: like ridding the masses of knives.

No joke. Plastered all over every precinct headquarters in the UK are propaganda posters about stopping "knife crimes".

In some place slippery slope isn't a logical fallacy. It's a way of life.

Thanks to Rahm.
