Man Attacks Police with Axe—Must Not Be Islam Inspired

Media assures us this attack was not Islam inspired. Laughable.

On the heels of the two attacks this week in Canada, we have this in New York.

From the local NBC affiliate: “NYPD Officers Attacked with a Hatchet in Queens, Suspect Shot Dead.”

An NYPD rookie is in critical condition and another police officer is in stable condition after being attacked by a man wielding a hatchet on a Queens Street Thursday, police said. 

Two other officers fired on the man, stopping the attack. The assailant was pronounced dead at the scene. A 29-year-old female bystander was also struck by a bullet and underwent surgery at Jamaica Hospital, where she’s recovering, officials said.

The suspect “charged at the officers with a hatchet in his hand,” Bratton said. “Unprovoked and not speaking a word, the male then swung at one of the officers with a hatchet, striking his right arm. After striking that officer, the suspect continuing swinging the hatchet, striking a second officer in the head.”

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as 32-year-old Zale Thompson.

There were some initial concerns Thompson may have been inspired in part by images of radical terrorists overseas, according to law enforcement officials. But a review of some of the suspect’s social media postings and interviews with people who know him paint a picture of a disturbed loner who was angry about what he said was oppression of black Americans in the U.S., according to the officials.

I love how this NBC story totally downplays the Islamic connection, but go to his Facebook page in the first link… um… right. (I took a screenshot, just in case they take his page down.)

Also, pray for God’s protection of our men and women in uniform. It seems the ISIS crazies are inspiring their demonic minions here to act out.
