Mosque knifeman stabbed policeman and 3 others...AFTER he had been Tasered [UK]
The Daily Mail ^ | June 16 2013 | SAM WEBB

A knifeman shrugged off being hit with a Taser and stabbed a police officer and three other people at a mosque in Birmingham last night.

The male police constable was responding to reports that three men had been stabbed inside the Madrasah Qasim ul Uloom mosque in the Ward End area of Birmingham when he was attacked.

The four men are being treated in hospital for their wounds and are described as 'stable'.

A 32-year-old man, believed to be of Somali extraction and a local, has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is currently in custody, a police spokeswoman added.

Full title: Mosque knifeman stabbed policeman in chest and stomach AFTER he had been Tasered... and only stopped when worshippers helped restrain him.

Bobbies, by a large majority, don't want to be armed with lethal force.

Tasers don’t always work on people who are pumped on adrenaline.

Maybe Bobbies shouldn’t hire pansies.

Knifer 4; taser 0. Maybe a 9mm in the forehead to stop the attack would have been a better idea. Of course that would be once the “armed” bobbies were called and showed up half and hour to 45 minutes later. But do NOT offend the muzzies. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Should have cordoned the place & let the rampage run its course. A British “infidel” life is worth more that.

...and , like anything electrical if the circuit is incomplete it don't work. It sounds like the cops didn't get solid contact with both electrodes. Adrenaline or no, 50,000 volts usually drops 'em cold.

A minor point: I am greatly amused by the continued use of the word ‘bobbies’ in this thread and on the website in general. I’m not sure where you have got this from. No-one, and I include my OAP parents in this, uses that word in this country anymore. Coppers, Rozzers, the Old Bill, yes. Youngsters, as in most cases, have begun aping their US counterparts and calling them “the feds”. But never, ever Bobbies

ALL police in London should be forced to carry a .50 caliber Desert Eagle... haji would not have bounced back after that. Getting hit in the chest by a .50 DE is like getting hit with a Claymore in the chest. At 25 yards, it will leave a softball sized hole in a cracked and split cinder block... if there is a cinder block left.

Really? Explain this, then.

That's 43 pages at 10 hits, per, and that is just the Daily Mail.

Heck, even the lowly .22 long rifle would be a vast improvement upon nothing, (and the recoil from the .50 American Express is rather more than most English people could handle, anyway.)

Up here in Lancashire, I know many police officers who call themselves ‘bobbies’ and they are known as such by members of the public as well (generally by people who have a positive opinion of them). Of course, they are called more pejorative terms as well by people of the sort who have reasons to view them in a less affectionate way.
In Manchester they’re known as ‘the Dibble’ and in Liverpool as ‘the Bizzies’ (because allegedly, whenever you call them, they’re always busy).

Britain needs to return to the .455 revolver and auto cartridge.

The .45 ACP was designed for Juramentados.

I posted a bit of a speech of his (Powell) on other site recently. Amazing (and terrible) how well he predicted the current state of affairs now, 45 years ago, except for maybe focusing too much on blacks rather than Muslims.

You may be right... but it really isn’t that bad and its performance makes a Model 29 Smith look like a Crossman. The truth is that if they just used a .45acp semi, the hajis would not be a problem.

In fairness, you’ve only just developed indoor toilets up in Lancashire so i’m not surprised to hear such antiquated speech

A good alternative:

and, check out 1:38 - tell the passenger to duck :-) (I just bought a second one for just such a use - the other is in the house)

Case in point to any Americans here who might not have been aware that here in England too, we have a patronising metropolitan elite centred around London and the South East that, as with New York in the US, views people from the outlying provinces as backwards yokels who don't really represent their country they way they so obviously do in their own minds...

I think you’ve been on this website a little too long my friend. The constant arguing inclines one to be somewhat defensive. I didn’t think i’d have to use a little smiley face to indicate to a fellow Brit that I was ever so gently taking the piss.

FWIW; I’m not from London or the south-east. I am from the highly unfashionable West Midlands

According to the ACLU, tasers are deadly weapons. UK cops shouldn’t be allowed to carry them. They should just kick guns and knives out of the hands of the dirtbags. It can be done; it happens on TV all the time.

” The Lefties control the state media, even if you watch Sky or Virgin you still have to pay the Paedophile Broadcasting Corporation a licence to fund it and spew vile anti-right wing biased propaganda out. Couple this with the Police, Police used to be Tory voters, Labour thought hmmmm........if we drastically increase pay and pensions then they’ll switch to us and we’ll Leftiefy it, when its Lefty we can use it to protect all our Ethnic and Muzzer voters.

In exactly the same way Hope not Hate was set up to counter us and the BNP, before UKIP BNP was the only choice for those against forced Blair sanctioned mass immigration, again just for votes, again hopefully in Tory heart land, now Lab is far cleverer than we are, HnH has targeted UKIP the very moment it started taking Lab votes as well as Tory, anyone who gets in Labs way will be called a Fascist or witch if you lived in the 16th Centuary, so as well as targetin Militan Islam we also need to directly tar the Labour party or it would be like cutting a weed and leaving the roots. “ From a poster on the EDL website

If the guy was Yemeni or Somali, I guarantee he was jacked up on khat. That would explain this instantly.
