Last week I reported on a culture-enricher who was shot dead by police in Val d’Oise in France. The “youth” had been brandishing a knife (another one of those pesky knives!) and threatening people, including a group of small children.
The TV news report below contains more details about the incident, including the fact that the late knifeman was Haitian. Which serves as a reminder of something I’ve said many times in the past: there is more to cultural enrichment than just Islam. Most of our culture-enriching experiences in the West come from Muslims, but there are numerous other sources of vibrant third-world diversity.
|00:05||In the video, we view from a distance a man approach wearing a black jacket.|
|00:09||He is brandishing a knife very close to a group of children at the amusement park.|
|00:14||There’s panic. Security agents take the children to safety and the two agents point their weapons|
|00:20||at the perpetrator. He raises his arms, but continues walking.|
|00:25||The security agents follow him with their weapons aimed at him.|
|00:29||According to the security agents the perpetrator screamed, “Kill me or I’ll kill the children!”|
|00:35||The SNCF security agents considered situation as being one of imminent danger|
|00:40||for the children, for themselves and for this individual. They utilized their weapons|
|00:47||and this individual was shot. —Just minutes before he was stopped,|
|00:51||the man was seen at this train station with the knife in his hand.|
|00:55||The security agents tried to stop him, but he escaped by the train tracks,|
|01:01||which led to this place here. According to a source close to the investigation,|
|01:05||the 35-year-old Haitian has been living in France illegally since 2019.|
|01:12||He has a staggering police record of violent crime.|
|01:16||The lead investigators have to decide whether or not the security agents acted|
|01:20||legitimately according to the law of self-defense.|
|01:24||They aren’t policemen, but they are trained to shoot according to this Union delegate.|
|01:30||We have a very good initial training and then there is continual training|
|01:35||for the rest of your career. We are trained how to move with our weapons|
|01:40||and to be sure of our target. —This evening both security agents are still being held by police.|
|01:46||For the traumatized children who were at the scene, a psychologist has been made available.
