Len take note, this is how a proper mayor acts

Len Brown thinks the mayoral office is a vehicle to get his jollies.

Other mayors take their responsibilities seriously.

Len Brown should take note?of the actions of the Mayor of Jerusalem.

The Mayor of Jerusalem and his security guard wrestled a man with a knife to the ground after an ultra-Orthodox Jew was stabbed at a busy intersection.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat instructed his bodyguards to apprehend a Palestinian man who had just stabbed the ultra-Orthodox Jew in the stomach.

Mr Barkat said he and his staff were travelling in a car when he noticed the “terrorist” with a knife.

He and his bodyguard leaped from their car to stop the attacker.?

The bodyguard drew his firearm and wrestled the 18-year-old attacker to the ground and held him until police arrived.

The 27-year-old victim suffered a stab wound to the stomach and was only “lightly injured” according to police.

The stabbing took place between the Old City and the western sector’s city hall.

A police spokesman said the suspect was in Israel illegally and has been taken into custody for questioning.

Speaking to the Jerusalem Post, Mr Barkat said: “I was driving my car near [IDF] Square when suddenly my team saw the terrorist near us with a knife.

“Both myself and my bodyguard immediately jumped out of my car, my guard drew his weapon and we held the terrorist until police arrived, and immediately took care of the casualty who fortunately was lightly injured.”

A proper mayor…probably just guaranteed his re-election.
