The headline of that article reads:

Is it true that an angry mob of Dutchmen killed and ate their own prime minister in 1672?

No evidence that there was actually cannibalism, although the murder of Johan de Witt and his brother was particularly savage. A good rule of thumb is, whenever a headline is a question, the answer generally is "no".

Yeah, my first reaction to reading the headline on this post was “no, they didn’t”.

So this one declined to prosecute the cannibals who murdered his rival?

Those facial features look familiar.
