The moment Taser police take down knifeman outside Buckingham Palace: Terror at Changing of the Guard as man breaks security cordon

Holding a blade to his own throat, this was the moment a knifeman brought chaos to the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace yesterday.

The middle-aged man walked through crowds of tourists clutching two large kitchen knives before police surrounded him and used a Taser stun gun to disarm him.

As a policeman shouted a warning call of ‘Taser, Taser, Taser’ to his colleagues, the knifeman lunged forward, brandishing a six-inch blade in a series of swipes, before falling to the floor as he was stunned by the electrical charge.

    The bobbies are bully’s. What is it with this massive overreaction of force? And to a muslim at that! They wouldn’t have used a taser if his name was Throckmorton! Take it to the English sharia court of appeal!

    A knife to his own throat? Must have been channeling his inner Cleavon Little and Blazing Saddles?

    “Next man makes a move, the ****** gets it!”

    If Piers Moron wants the U.S. to emulate England’s gun laws, why doesn’t he argue that American police have to let go of their guns?
