Machete Attack at Birmingham Cinema, 7 Injured


Isn't diversity wonderful! An entertainment complex in Birmingham was evacuated after around 100 people, some carrying machetes, stormed the cinema and started a riot over the release of a new gangster movie.


A group of mostly youths, armed with machetes, arrived at a Birmingham cinema on Saturday night, breaking out into fights. Armed police were called to the scene of the fight, in which police officers were assaulted and several arrests were made.

According to witnesses, the mayhem broke out over the release of Blue Story, a film which depicts gang culture in southeast London.

“That’s probably one of the scariest moments of my life. Me and my daughter were in a queue to watch Frozen, loads of little kids there, all dressed up and everything, then these girls jumped on another girl and loads of these kids just started fighting,” one witness told The Mirror.

“Armed police came with Tasers. All the people that were fighting run off into the cinema. There’s about 15 to 20 police cars. I’m shaking,” the witness added.

“This is the most horrifying thing I’ve been involved in. I’m scared and I’m 45. [There were] little girls dressed in Frozen dresses crying and screaming. Appalling behaviour all over a gangster film set in London,” another witness said.

The BBC reports that five of the arrests were of teenagers. One 13-year-old girl, a boy and a girl both aged 14, and a 19-year-old male were held on suspicion of assaulting police while a 14-year-old boy was held on suspicion of obstructing police.

Not only has England devolved into a third world nation, it’s also reverted back into medieval fighting,  but it is not your hard-working, decent Englishman wielding the machete now, is it?
