Brave Americans and Brit stop deadly attack on French train

Free people in free societies can surprise you.

Thanks to Instapundit for the link.

The report of bravery on the train continues to unfold.

US airman Spencer Stone, who was on board the train during the attack, spotted the 26-year-old Moroccan acting suspiciously and heard him trying to load his weapon in the toilet.

Spencer was travelling with Oregon National Guard member Alek Skarlatos, 22, who was on leave and travelling through Europe at the time after returning from a tour in Afghanistan.

With the help of their friend Anthony Sadler, from Pittsburg, California, and fellow passenger British IT consultant Chris Norman, they managed to wrestle the attacker to the ground, stopping what could have been a deadly terrorist attack.

Soldiers know the sound of a weapon being loaded.

That the man wielding the AK-47 is by reputation an Islamic fanatic will not surprise those who listen regularly to the news.

Warning: unpleasant photos in the DM report
