Was a convicted terrorist on early release. Go figure.

    And the British knife laws didn't stop him either.  Shocking.

    Apparently a couple of citizens held the bad guy off with a fire extinguisher and (no kidding) a Narwhal tusk...
    Can't help but love it...

    A purple K fire extinguisher is good kit to have in the car/truck. Puts out a gas/diesel/oil fire, and will sure as Hades lock up someone's lungs, nose holes, mouth, and temporarily blind them if needed.
    I like the Narwhal tusk thing. Curly 'unicorn' horn. Not something one would have rammed through their brisket!
    The Brits still haven't learned that 'catch and release' doesn't work with terrorists. Slow learners, I guess.

    While I applaud their creativity.........I prefer less ingenuity.

    The good thing about the whole fire extinguisher thing is that after it's empty, you can still whack em with the can..
    ...

    Now that the deadly possibilities of Narwhal tusks have been made public...I'm sure a ban will follow shortly...

    Actually....forget the whole "knife vs. gun vs. fire extinguisher vs. narwhale tusk" thingy.....
    A 25 lb iron ball attached to 14" of hardened steel chain in lieu of an electronic ankle-bracelet would have likely prevented this in its entirety.

    Fire extinguisher self defense training was a part of employment training for all my women employees. Very effective and always close at hand in the bar/casino business.

    A long time ago, a co-worker used one offensively against another truck driver in a traffic dispute. Apparently quite effectively with a gained reputation afterward of some weight.

    Beats me why people call the old days good :D

    The phrase "early release" had me thinking about the latch on a gallows trap door. . .

    You can't really bomb England. My mother, brother and oldest sister were born in England. Not sayin' they might not have deserved it, but it's probably not legal.

    Mike, if I didn't mean bombing England. Meant returning the terrorist to their origin, as in 'drop shipping' them back to where they originated. Kind of a 'return to sender' thing. :D

    There are a few. 

    Pretty much, when you need a dog to leave a place you need to be........ a face full of Fire Extinguisher is pretty definitive.

    I've had my snot locker and eyes full of purple K powder during the years I was a first responder to fires in the nuke plants. Training center was outside for some of it and the wind would get you sometimes. That stuff made the 'sailor language' come out pretty strong. Dogs having more sensitive sense of smell, I guess they'd REALLY hate that stuff up their noses. And it tastes horrible, too.

    I hair have received a face full of pepper spray, not purple k.  What are the differences?  Inquiring minds and all that.

    I have found that CO2 extinguishers are preferable for discouraging dog and breaking up dog fights....as soon as they realize there is nothing to breathe in the immediate area those aggressive tendencies go away...No mess to clean up either

    Drys everything out, RFN. Lungs, eyes, nasal passages. At least thats what it felt like when I cut loose on a fire in a wall and most of it came back out in my face.

    Had a 100 lb. Purple K extinguisher go off in the turbine building of one of the nuke plants I worked in. Some loon wired the nozzle open and hit the CO2 canister release to charge it, and ran. Sweet Jaysus! All we had available RIGHT NOW was full face respirators(went through a lot of filters), and that thing was spinning from exhaust recoil. It filled a 100 x 200 foot hallway in no time at all with that purple haze. Setting up smoke exhaust fans was a laugh riot!
