‘Narwhal tusk’ and a fire extinguisher: How bystanders pinned down London Bridge attacker

Members of the public used a “narwhal tusk” and a fire extinguisher to try to restrain the London Bridge attacker, according to witness reports.

The man, a Polish chef at the hall, ran towards the terrorist with the sea creature’s tusk after the terrorist threatened to set off an explosive, according to The Times.


Obviously the perp didn't think about others having "weapons" in the area.

"threatened to set off an explosive,"
Now, that's bravery. No record of CO2 or tusks neutralizing explosives. Old fashioned bullets did him in. No doubt cops had more time to respond, and no more injuries.

There will be serious Questions about his priors.

Later stories have more heroic incidents.

When your history is to face down Hitler with fowling pieces I guess the odd radical Islamist ain't much.
