Man jumped into the truck to stop Muslim mass murderer in Nice, France

Independent:
A man slowed the murderous rampage of a man driving a truck through a crowd in Nice by jumping into the cab and seizing his revolver.

The attacker, 31-year-old Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, was slowed when a heroic member of the public leapt onto the vehicle and wrestled the driver.

Police sources in Nice confirmed that the murderous two kilometre charge of the lorry might have been even longer if it had not been for the courage of a member of the public.

They said the man had hurled himself into the cab when the 20 tonne truck was held up by an obstruction. He wrestled with the driver, who seized a revolver and fired several shots at the man and at police officers who arrived on the scene. None was hurt. The driver was then shot dead by two officers.
...
The police wisely did  not waste any time trying to negotiate with the mass murderer.

That a civilian risked his life to stop the attack is important.  It shows that some are willing to fight back against terrorists and stop them.

BTW, there is no doubt that this was an Islamic terror attack sponsored by ISIL which claimed credit for the mass murders.  There seems to be a cottage industry on the left whose goal is to ignore the obvious when it comes to Islamic terrorism.
