That stabbing is just more curious when we realise in Poland there was no kind of "regicides" in the past centuries, AFAIK only Gabriel Narutowicz, elected president in 1922, was shot when in office as a head of state (like king or president or prime minister) or another powerful politician (notabene Narutowicz was shot by a right wing nationalist), and now the mayor of sixth most populous city of Poland very sadly joined the club.

But looking at a little bigger picture, such atmosphere lasts in Polish public life for few good years. In 2010, some man wanted to kill Jarosław Kaczyński (boss of PiS) in an party office in Łódź, but Kaczyński has left the office, and that guy killed another person (office staffer), and some cesspit spilled over when PiS gained power in 2015 - besides from a "traditional" Internet hate speech and death threats (ex. when Adamowicz died, police arrested other peoples for death threats to another mayors of big cities, Poznań and Wrocław) there was also such things like burning Polish MPs offices or staffs or burnings of effigies of well-known politicians in public. Such things never happened so often in Poland and Polish public life than now.
