Our government at work….
Wielding two butcher knives bought at Wal-Mart and vodka bottles to use as explosives, Tahmeed Ahmad chanted ”Death to America” and told Homestead Air Reserve Base guards he wanted to kill Soldiers. (Actually in this case, airmen.)
But Ahmad was no terrorist, authorities believe.
Rather, the Miami Central High School math teacher wanted to ”commit suicide by cop” when he attacked military policemen stationed at the west gate just before midnight Sunday, the FBI said.
Ahmad did not get his wish. One officer fired his handgun at Ahmad. He missed.
”We take security very seriously at the base, but this was quite an unusual event,” said Lt. Col. Tom Davis, a base spokesman. “Our security forces are well trained and responded appropriately.”
Yeah, well the Barney Fife who fired and missed apparently needs more training…..
Police quickly arrested Ahmad, 22, whose mother says is mentally ill and had recently been in a mental institution. The FBI charged him Monday with assaulting a U.S. government employee.
Ahmad is in his first year teaching math at Miami Central High, 1781 NW 95th St.
A federal judge will decide Thursday whether he can be released pending trial.
If he is freed, Ahmad will be reassigned away from children, said John Schuster, a schools spokesman.
Ahmad had been added to a federal terrorist watch list, but officials had long since concluded he was not a credible threat, Davis said.
You got that? This wack job with a jihad vendetta against the United States has a teaching job at a highschool, and if he’s released they’ll just “reassign him”. He meets all the prerequisites for being a terrorist, but he’s not a ‘credible threat’. Just wonderful. Yooooohoooooo, Department of Homeland Stupidity….you paying attention?
…..He was born in Kuwait and is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
……he would have used a gun but that a week ago, a dealer refused to sell him one because he had not lived in Florida for 90 days, as required by law.
The little ME immigrant was probably only in country 89 days….
