Off the wall counter-terrorism

The attacker who killed two people on the London Bridge last week was subdued by good people armed with: fire extinguishers, a long seafaring pole and, reportedly, a narwhal tusk. Sadly, the attacker was able to kill two people before he was subdued and later killed by police. But the location he chose for his attack proved to be his undoing.
