SCROLL DOWN FOR UPDATES
Hey, I’m a regular guy; deal with it.
Last night a Muslim tried to kill a cop in Philly and, surprise of surprises, authorities in Philadelphia actually mentioned the words “Islamic” and “terrorist” in their press conference statements.
Maybe even a few Democrats are finally getting it.
Officials said Friday that the gunman who tried to execute a Philadelphia police officer pledged allegiance to the terrorist group ISIS.
Philadelphia police made the comments at a news conference Friday afternoon. They also confirmed earlier reports that the suspect, identified as Edward Archer, confessed to committing the attack in the name of Islam.
Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross also said that the firearm used in the attack was a stolen police gun.
The gunman, who sources said was wearing Muslim garb and a mask, attempted to assassinate the Philadelphia police officer late Thursday, according to officials. [read it here]
Local ABC News affiliate WPVI reported that the suspect approached Officer Jesse Hartnett in his police vehicle and fired 13 shots at him at about 11:40 p.m. Thursday night.
Ross, the police commissioner, described the attack as an execution attempt.
“I just have to tell you, when you look at the video–we have video that captured all of this–it’s one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen. This guy tried to execute the police officer. It’s amazing he’s alive,” Ross said at a press conference Friday morning.
Hartnett managed to return fire at the gunman during the attack and he is currently in police custody.
So Officer Jesse Hartnett survived but his condition is unknown. That is pretty good news but I’m sure he and his family can use our prayers. This can definitely be categorized as an act of “workplace violence” for this brave young hero.
And now a word from their sponsor.
File Under: Islam-A-Bad
Yes, yes, yes, I know the mayor of Philly has made the obligatory public denial that this attack had anything whatsoever to do with Islam. Note: Nowhere is this blog post has the RG suggested that Democrats are not still fence-post stupid.
