This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Wed 18/03/09 17:42 - In Ghent (East Flanders) police have shot dead a man after he stabbed three officers. The officers went to the man's home to accompany him to hospital.

The dead man was about to be placed in a mental institution. He was shot by one of the officers that he stabbed.

The police officers were stabbed in a block of flats in the north east of the city.

The entire neighbourhood was been cordoned off.

The police officers were taken to hospital with head injuries.

"One colleague is seriously wounded" police chief Steven De Smet told the VRT. The injuries are of a nature that the officers had to be hospitalised.

On Wednesday afternoon the officer was still fighting for his life.

The age old argument of guns causing crimes. If a person can't get a gun they will use something else.

Good Hunting.

you should re-read Steve, the guy used a knife.

those are small appartments where you can do alot of harm with a single knife.

and those were normal streetcops, not the robocop types.

this is a shock for those involved, we're still a country that's kind of low of crimes like these...

the man was someone with psychological problems but well...should you expect this? maybe you should but I guess when you're used to deal with normal streetwork in quite a calm town you can be surprised...

hope the cop makes it...good luck...lawman
