Just a bit of that old timey cultural enrichment.
Taste the vibrancy, baby: it’s what’s for dinner.
A 27-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following a mass stabbing attack over the course of 90 minutes in Birmingham City center in the UK in which one person was killed and seven injured.
The suspect was arrested at 4am local time Monday morning and is being held on seven counts of attempted murder, though further charges are expected.
The man attacked people with a knife in four different locations across Birmingham City center in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Eyewitnesses described the attacker as “deranged.”
Wow, that’s pretty racist.
“He went up to a man and confronted him about chatting to a girl. The man had not done anything. He plunged a knife into his head,” one witness described in chilling detail.
“Then he ran up the road and stabbed a woman,” they added.
The attacks began at approximately 00:30 BST on Sunday in the Constitution Hill area of the city, where a man sustained superficial injuries.
Shortly before 1am, police were then called to another attack in the vicinity of Snow Hill railway station where a 19-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman suffered “serious stab wounds.” They both remain in a critical condition in hospital.
A 23-year-old man sustained ultimately fatal injuries at 01:50 on Irving Street while another man was seriously injured during the incident.
At 2am, police were called to the city’s Gay Village, where a 32-year-old woman was critically injured and two men were also attacked.
“I could see a blade. He must have stabbed her seven times in the neck then walked off, smirking, as if proud,” Bar owner Savvas Sfrantzis, 64, said.
West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson described the attacks as “truly dreadful” and “unusual.”
“Unusual” also strikes me as pretty racist terminology. There’s nothing unusual about black skin, and people with black skin have done some pretty usual things – such as, oh I don’t know, building the pyramids?
He probably did this because of slavery or colonialism or something.
Of course, it doesn’t matter why he did it. Longtime readers will remember that the “Nirvana Fallacy” means that if a black African in Britain wouldn’t have stabbed all of these people, a white Briton would have done it instead.
The universe destined that these people be stabbed by someone, you see.
It also probably destined that it would only be reported internationally in Russian media.
