Quote:Germany has now experienced three terror attacks in a little more than a week. One of those attacks occurred on a train in Bavaria, as an 18-year-old Afghan refugee attacked people in a rail car, swinging an axe and screaming "Allahu Akbar." When the train stopped, the terrorist tried to escape by attacking police who had surrounded him. Seeing no other recourse, the police shot him dead.
Quote:Green Party MP Renate Künas questions whether lethal force was necessary. Soeren Kern reports:
Why could the attacker not have been incapacitated without killing him???? Questions!
Her Tweet was not well received. Hilarity ensues...
I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971
