Philadelphia (Storch Report) — From the White House to the Mayor’s office in Philadelphia there appears to be a lying epidemic among Democrats driven by political correctness despite the rampant growth of Islamic terrorism taking place in the streets of America.
Last night a black man in Islamic white garb holding a stolen 9 mm semi automatic Glock 17 charged a police car driven by 33-year-old Officer Jesse Hatnett fired 13 shots at him hitting him three times in the left arm and then ran away. Officer Hartnett got out of his car severely bleeding, chased the assailant, fired his gun and hit the terrorist before collapsing himself.
At a subsequent press conference Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross identified the suspect as 30-year-old Edward Archer and said the assailant claimed he acted “in the name of Islam.” He was caught in surveillance video ambushing Hartnett.
Ross said the suspect was captured and has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam. “According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”
The suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video. The gun used according to Ross was stolen back in October of 2013 from an officer and reported.
Immediately following the commissioners comments and the admission by the terrorist, Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, made an appalling, outrageous statement despite the confession, “In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen.” Kennedy said of the shooting, “It is abhorrent. It is terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape or form or any of the teachings.”
He went on to say, “This is a criminal with a stolen gun who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following the Islamic faith.”
The Mayor must have been hiding under a rock along with the Obama administration for the past decade. The White House to date has been silent on the terrorist act.
According to the terrorists’ mother, Archer was a long time devout Muslim.
According to police Archer has a long rap sheet, served time in jail and prison where they suspect he was radicalized. It is also know that he spent time in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Officer Hartnett is in stable condition after undergoing surgery for a broken arm and a severed nerve and has a long road to recovery.
Archer was in critical but stable condition.
The FBI are investigating a trip Archer made to Saudi Arabia in 2011, where the suspect spent ”a couple ” of weeks and are also seeking more information about the several months Archer spent in Egypt in 2012.
Not unlike President Obama, Democratic Mayor Kenney put his thumb on the scale of justice unwisely with his political correct comments about Muslims long before a trial ever takes place.
