Defensive Traffic Barrier Use of the Day: The knife-wielding jihadi never saw it coming…

In the feel-good story of the day, a Moroccan man was threatening Spanish border-guards with a large knife when one of the group decided to do something fairly awesome.

It is at this point you can simply scroll to the bottom for the video if you want to be surprised (it starts slowly, you can jump in at the 0:30 mark and not miss anything). Or read the blockquote from PJ Media if you wish.

From PJ Media:

A knife-wielding attacker at the Beni Azar gate, on the Morocco-Spain border, shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he ran towards police officers. “Allahu Akbar” is, of course, the Muslim call to prayer that is often repeated by Islamic terrorists. This region, between North Africa and Europe, has long been a pressure point for Islamic refugees and immigration, and we’re sure this incident won’t make these matters any better. In this security camera video, you can see the attacker and how a security official uses a large barricade as a weapon to subdue him.

Granted, cops in the US would have ventilated the perp, but that is not how Euro-cops roll. One can debate the wisdom and efficacy of both approaches if they wish, but one also has to admit that this is much cooler than simply shooting the guy.



Score 1 for the Good Guys (with a traffic barrier)

    I think if the police officer in front of you is putting away his nightstick, your day just got more complicated. Poor bonehead.

  2. Sam L. says:

    A very LIGHT barrier it was.

    1. Definitely not filled with sand. Still looked like it hurt though.

  3. Hannibal says:

    Cop must have taken a +1 to improvised weapons at his last level-up

  4. Chris Dumm says:

    Creative, hilarious, and just violent enough to get the job done. I’m actually wiping tears of laughter from my eyes after watching this a few times.
