Title explains its self, props to the cops for keeping everyone safe and keeping the crazy man from injuring himself.

Holding a blade to his own throat, this was the moment a knifeman brought chaos to the Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace yesterday.
Talhat Rehman, 54, of Harrow, has been charged with possessing a bladed weapon in public and affray, and will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court today.
The middle-aged man walked through crowds of tourists clutching two large kitchen knives before police surrounded him and used a Taser stun gun to disarm him.
As a policeman shouted a warning call of ‘Taser, Taser, Taser’ to his colleagues, the knifeman allegedly lunged forward, brandishing a six-inch blade in a series of swipes, before falling to the floor as he was stunned by the electrical charge.

A video showed Mr Rehman shouting and holding the knife to his throat as he walked past the Victoria Memorial, towards the gates of the palace.
Police officers shouted to tourists to keep away from the man as they raced to surround him.
The Harrow man, who clutched a set of wooden beads and wore a flat woollen hat similar to the pakuls traditionally worn by men in parts of Pakistan and Afghanistan, was later arrested.

For someone threatening to kill himself, he sure showed a lot of effort trying to attack the cop that tasered him.

I'm surprised how long he was standing before collapsing.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.
