Danish Cartoonist Hid in Panic Room During Home Attack

When Danish political cartoonist Kurt Westergaard was attacked at home by an ax-wielding man, he didn't lock himself in the bathroom - instead, he utilized the panic room:

Westergaard took his 5-year-old granddaughter into the "panic room" when he realized what was happening, Chief Superintendent Ole Madsen said.

Westergaard, who has been threatened for drawing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, is ordinarily accompanied by bodyguards when he leaves his home, but nobody was on guard at the house Friday, the Security and Intelligence Service told CNN.

The guy left his own granddaughter behind, he is a coward.

I would not even think about insulting Jesus Christ or Bhudda or Confucius etc... Its called common decency.

The fact that he now has to hide like a dog from unseen and unknown faces everywhere is a testament to true karma. Do as you would be done by, and if you don't, deal with the consequences.

I want to point out that the bastard left his five year old granddaughter with a broken leg to fend for herself in the living room while he himself went into the panic room! (The granddaughter's leg was already in a cast, and her injury was not sustained during the commotion).

The police shot the intruder twice when he tried to attack the officers later.

They wheeled him into the courtroom on a hospital bed for the arraignment hearing two days later.
