The people of NY are at greater risk to these terrorists because of their inability to carry firearms. Arm the people and these terrorists don’t stand a chance.
New York police fear that a crazed hatchet attack on four police officers in Jamaica, Queens, today could be linked to terrorism.
Suspect Zale Thompson, 32, pictured in surveillance footage, was shot dead on the scene after slashing one cop in the arm and the other in the head at around without warning about 2pm.
The officer struck in the head was critically injured.
Police say they were investigating whether Thompson’s attack on the cops was linked to Islamic terrorism. ISIS has urged fighters to launch lone wolf attacks in the United States.
Thompson’s Facebook page features a photograph of a man dressed in Middle Eastern garb and a cover photo displaying Arabic writing.
DNA Info reports that on Thursday afternoon a freelance photographer approached the group of rookie cops and asked to take their photograph.
As the officers were posing for the camera, Thompson charged towards them swinging an 18.5 inch hatchet without uttering a single word.
One 24-year-old officer was slashed in the arm.
