Citizens gone wild: Man holds local official at gun point over a speed bump


pump action shotgunA resident of the southern town of Tair Debba, near the city of Tyre, held up his local municipality office at gun point after a speed-bump was removed from in front of his house. The ISF are currently working to apprehend the man, who fled the area upon their arrival.

The man, identified as Hassan H., opened fire inside the building, chained the doors shut, took municipality officials hostage, and forced traffic on the road outside to halt after a speed-bump he had placed in front of his house without official permission was removed, the National News Agency reported Tuesday.

Following the incident, Army and Internal Security Forces officers arrived on the scene and re-opened the road and the municipality office.

    If they catch him they should use him as a speed hump if it’s that important to him.

      lol that’s a bit harsh borlz..
      The fact the guy needed to put his own speed hump in means that the council is obviously not doing its job. He certainly went overboard with the shooting etc but they should at least investigate whether the area does need a speed hump. From memory Lebanon could do with many more speed humps, amongst other things to slow down so many hoons. The funniest was the blonde bimbos driving around in convertible without seatbelts on while texting and speeding. Seriously the roads in leb need better laws and policing.
