The line to pay respects to the late Queen is now almost a full 24 hours long.
Understandably, people might get a little cranky in the process, but one man took it to a new level.
According to reports, around 10:00 p.m., he rushed the casket and was tackled by local police.
This is Mum Queen, so onlookers were horrified that this man dared to rush the casket.
Scotland Yard reported, “Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command detained a man in Westminster Hall following a disturbance.”
The report said that the man had been “arrested for an offence [sic] under the Public Order Act and is currently in custody.”
Why the man rushed the coffin remains unclear, but there is speculation from witnesses that he wanted to steal the flag that is draped over the coffin…
Personally, I don’t get any of this.
Why would you wait in line for 24 hours to pay respects to someone you more than likely never met, and do all of this so that you could bow your head and nod for a second before moving along?
Additionally, reports have surfaced that two women waiting in line to see the Queen were sexually assaulted.
A man has been taken into custody for that as well.
What is this debacle costing? Security for the funeral on Wednesday is reportedly $7.5 million.
I would be willing to bet that this funeral costs the country upwards of $10 million when all is said and done.
But England doesn’t have the money to help us pay the tab for Ukraine’s defense, right?
