I’m not sure why ISIS boasts about being defeated, but hopefully they will have more opportunities to do so.
Somehow, if I were ISIS, I wouldn’t be bragging about this one.
You “sent” two armed yahoos in (jihadis… yahoos… same thing), and they marvelously succeeded in shooting one guard in the ankle. Then these mighty Islamic warriors ended up aerated multiple times and bleeding in the street, dead.
I guess we’re supposed to be afraid of such awesome displays of military prowess!
Um, maybe next time you should pick a soft-target, like a heavily Democratic state, where they have tight “gun control” laws.
For the rest of us, I have to point out that the story just gets better. WaPo says they had “automatic” “assault rifles,” but that one police officer took them both down using just his service pistol. Now, I would almost take a bet that this is ignorant and clueless journalism, and that the two had semi-auto rifles, but… that’s beside the main point. There’s a hero officer in Garland with ice in his veins to take down two well-armed thugs with just his sidearm—well done, sir. Well done.
But it gets even better than that! They had body armor and he still got ’em. Amazing! Here is what Bearingarms.com reports:
A traffic officer working after hours as security for the event and armed only with a service pistol killed both men, who were wearing body armor and carrying assault rifles, Garland Police Department spokesman Joe Harn told reporters Monday.
“He did what he was trained to do, and under the fire that he was put under, he did a very good job. And probably saved lives,” Harn said of the unidentified officer. “We think their strategy was to get into the event center, and they were not able to get past our perimeter that we had set up.”
An unarmed security officer working with the patrol officer was shot in the ankle, police said. None of the approximately 200 people attending the event were hurt.
While you’re reading about what happened in Texas, you might consider what I predict will happen if ISIS tries the same thing in Tennessee.
