Police say Ibarra-Hernandez lured officers to Alabama City west of Wall Street by shooting out store windows. He then opened fire on the officers for about 30 minutes before being pinned down and surrendering, Captain Regina May with the Gadsden Police Department said.
After the suspect was taken into custody, he reported that he knew he must do something extreme to draw attention to Islam and himself, so he planned to shoot police officers.
Praise Allah that Homeland Security is keeping a close eye on those potentially violent TEA Partiers, huh? Gadsden…Don’t Tread On Me….just a coincidence? I think not. Hey, and he’s wearing a yellow shirt too (I bet there’s a coiled rattle snake on it). [End Snark]
