A good cop knows his surroundings and can improvise on a moment’s notice. That’s what you’re about to see here.
A knife-wielding man shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) tried to attack Spanish police Tuesday moments before an officer knocked him out with a plastic road barrier.
The failed attack took place in the Spanish territory of Melilla, which makes up one of two land borders between the European Union and Africa.
Here’s the video, courtesy of Juan Ignacio Zoido, Spain’s interior minister:

Translation: “The fast, coordinated, and professional performance of the police has prevented a serious incident in Beni Ansar. My full support for the wounded agent.” Mine too!
Could somebody with video-editing skills please put the last 5 seconds of that video on a loop? Maybe with a cartoon “BONK” sound effect? I could watch that all day.
Okay, now you can whine at me about “Islamophobia,” and then forget about this until the next time it happens. Proceed.
