Polish Mayor Dies After Being Stabbed at Charity Event

Postby SandTea » Tue Jan 15, 2019 3:44 pm

As the title says, Mayor Pawel Adamowicz was stabbed while on stage for an annual charity event to raise funds for medical equipment and subsequently died.

The assailant then circled the podium waving a black knife and screamed that he had been thrown in jail under Civic Platform, the political party to which the liberal mayor once belonged.

“That’s why I killed Adamowicz,” the man shouted.


The article goes on to discuss how hostile the political divide currently is. It has no 'why' information beyond "mentally disturbed man with a history of violence and no clear political motive".

This was upsetting to me even though I have no connection other than 'human'. Anyone have a better understanding of the Polish politics currently? Was this an outlier or inevitable?
