Dear wannabe terrorists: Spain is not going to play around with you. They will take you down in inventive and painful ways. A knife-wielding Muslim extremist who literally tried to stab his way into Spain learned that the hard way.
A viral video tweeted out by Juan Ignacio Zoido, Spain’s Interior Minister, shows just how police dealt with a crazed man who pulled a knife at a border checkpoint. The man was shouting “Allahu Akbar,” leading many progressives to believe he was Southern Baptist and a Trump supporter.
Police spend several minutes attempting to get the man to surrender, but as the surveillance video of the incident shows, authorities had to resort to an unconventional method to bring him down. We won’t spoil it for you, you just need to see it.
A knife-wielding man shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) tried to attack Spanish police Tuesday moments before an officer knocked him out with a plastic road barrier.
The failed attack took place in the Spanish territory of Melilla, which makes up one of two land borders between the European Union and Africa. The man was circled by a large group of officers as he approached the border post with a knife. One officer sustained light injuries from the attack.
Spain’s Interior Minister Juan Ignacio Zoido posted a video Tuesday showing how the suspect got knocked out by a police officer with a plastic road barrier. A number of officers then wrestled him to the ground and arrested the suspect.
Watch the video and then let’s talk.

Dios mio! That’s gotta hurt. And yes, that is a traffic barrier they threw at his head.
Terrorists beware – don’t mess with Spain! They will take you out and set you up for public ridicule in a viral video.
