This morning German radio station reports that one 31 year old man disarmed four policemen in the city of Oppenau/Black Forest in Germany. The police got a message on Sunday 12th of July 2020 that there is a suspect person in front of a hut in a garden. At first the man was cooperativ to the policemen, then suddenly he outdraw a pistol and instructed the four policemen to give him their arms. To impede an escalation the four policemen gave him their arms. The criminal was well known by the police also for breaking firearms law.
Now the police wrote a warrant and orders the population to stay at home and to pay attention to their security. There is no hint where the criminal hides. The burglar now has 5 pistols.
There was a story several years ago in that makes me smile. Herald Tribune wrote a story that some beduine on camels stopped a convoy of 4 egypt police Jeeps and instructed the policemen to give them their arms. The Egypt policemen reported that the caravan appears suddenly and after the incident they disappeared as fast as the wind.
Perhaps the policemen need an extended version of their training including mortal fighting and mental training/meditation especially how to to go up to criminals. It makes me perplex that one well known burglar could disarm 4 policemen in a state like Germany.
