4 x French cops slain by Salafist insider at police HQ

I don't even know how to prevent against this sort of thing in a democratic, liberal society. Good shooting by the rookie gendarme putting this guy down and ending the rampage.

Killed four people in seven minutes with a knife. Truly sad!

Rest In Peace, to the murder victims. Glad to see the LEO was able to do what needed to be done and put an end to the killing.

It isn't that complicated. Homogeneous societies don't have these problems. Core beliefs upheld by an educated and moral populace are a fairly safe recipe for success.

"In the prefecture courtyard, he was challenged by a trainee police officer who tried to reason with him telling him to drop his knife. He told police that the man ignored his appeals and ran at him with the knife, so he shot him twice."

Way to go Mr. Trainee!

RIP to the slain Officers.

Being a 16 year employee, he was probably able to walk right up to most of the victims and attacked them as they knew him. Even if he was yelling and ranting the victims would probably hesitate for that split moment wondering what the hell is his problem and that's all it takes to get behind the curve.
