Last weekend I watched a very moving HBO documentary about the Nov. 2015 attack on the Bataclan theater in Paris, and the subsequent reaction of the terrific rock band who was playing there that night, Eagles of Death Metal. (The band sounds nothing like death metal, nor the Eagles for that matter.) That documentary deserves its own post, but it did make me ask: Why the hell were those scumbag terrorists allowed to rampage around that theater for over 2 hours, murdering 89 people, before the cops intervened?
I don’t know the answer, but the following might just be a piece of the puzzle.

Two people suffered minor injuries from the shot. And I hope that cop is looking for a nouveau travail.
