Sign of the Times: Guy Armed With Gun Commandeers Dutch TV Station, Demands To Have His Message Transmitted to Country

Guy looks like "Agent 47" from the Hitman videogame series, though he seems to be playing out a fantasy from the film V for Vendetta.



Per this French language report from Itele:

An Armed Man Stops the 8 O'Clock News Before Being Handled by The Police

* The man was holding an object resembling a silenced pistol, with which he briefly took hostage an employee of the Dutch TV station NOS, unseen on the screen, for a few minutes

* The armed man had demanded that this be transmitted: "The things which are going to be said are of global importance, we have been engaged by the secret services and have heard things that put our current society in doubt. And we are going to reveal them."

Video at that link.

This English language account has more video, including a different angle of the moment the cops take the mutant down.

The dramatic arrest of a gunman was caught on the cameras of the TV studio he had stormed in the Netherlands.

The gunman got into the headquarters of Dutch national broadcaster NOS demanding airtime.

I've seen various speculations that the guy is Muslim in the Itele thread, but those seem like pure guesses, with no evidence backing them. As of now, the gunman's motive is unknown. Heck, we don't even know if he was carrying a real gun.

He looks plain ol' Dutch to me.

More: Twitchy's been covering this four a couple of hours now.
