Culture-Enricher in Italy Attacks Police With a Knife and a Hammer

A few days ago a Nigerian migrant attacked policemen on the platform of a railway station in the town of Busto Arsizio in northern Italy. The “youth” was carrying a hammer and a large knife, yet somehow the Carabinieri managed to disarm him without anyone getting hurt.

The knife shown in this footage is kind of shaped like a dagger, but is much larger — 30 cm (12″). I don’t know what this type of knife is commonly called.

    • Takuan? It’s a while since he was here; I miss his erudition, while understanding why he was banned.

      • He was NOT banned. He chose to stop submitting material because he did not approve of our policies concerning certain comments.

        I’d be delighted to have him back, but I can’t allow someone besides Dymphna and me to control comment policies.
