ELDER PATRIOT – A gunman fires thirteen shots at a police officer and explains his reasoning thusly, “he targeted an officer because police defend laws that are contrary to the Quran.”
Channel 6 the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia reported that Edward Archer “confessed” to having carried out that attack “in the name of Islam” and that Archer “pledged his allegiance to ISIS.”
The mayor of Philadelphia Jim Kenney used the press conference to advance a different story though claiming, “In no way, shape, or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam, or the teaching of Islam, has anything to do with [the shooting of Officer Hartnett].”
Kenney then turned the press conference into a diatribe for gun control, “There are too many guns on our streets and I think our national government needs to do something about that.” The mayor never addressed the fact that the gun used to shoot Officer Hartnett was stolen and that no level of gun control would’ve prevented this attack.
I wonder how the mayor (and the Obama Justice Department for that matter) would’ve reacted if the gunman was white and claimed he did it in the name of white supremacy or, more simply, while uttering the “N” word?
