Sources: Suspect Confesses To Shooting Officer, Says He Did It In the Name Of Islam (Made the Hajj and Visited Egypt


PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.


Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired 13 shots through the driver’s side of the car.

The officer — 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett — was struck three times in his arm, authorities say.

“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Hartnett can be heard yelling on police radio.

Sources tell Eyewitness News the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam.

“When you look at the video, this is one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen,” Commissioner Ross said. “This guy tried to execute the police officer. The police officer had no idea he was coming. It’s amazing he’s alive.”

Sudden jihad syndrome strikes again....thank god the officer was able to repel the attacker.

Update:( Matt ) Suspect has told the police he did it for ISIS

Video of the shooting here at Daily Caller.

I can't remember the last time CAIR accused a Muslim who had made the Holy Pilgrimage to Mecca a non practicing Muslim.

1 It all happened out of thin air -- it has nothing to do with his family, national origin, the local mosque, Islam, Islamists, the way he was raised, or anything else a reasonable person could find. Just like the Tsarnaev brothers

3 He claims to have done it for Islam.
NOT ACCEPTED by the Media or the court.
As in pleading guilty to a crime is not accepted by courts because only a crazy person would plead guilty in a court where everyone is considered innocent until found guilty.
Therefore a guilty as hell person (excluded term man due to gender leveling) must plead not guilty even though they have video and a thousand witnesses that state otherwise.
Therefore the person either did not do it at all or did it for some more politically accepted reason such as football.

4 Greetings:

After getting shot three times and bleeding profusely, Officer Harnett got out of his cop car and chased the allah-bag firing away as he ran and bled.

As my favorite Platoon Sergeant used to say, "As many as you can as often as you can, anywhere and any way you can"

5 Honestly, i am more angry at the Mayor than at the shooter.
Most of us have no real fear of the terrorists
but plenty of anger at their enablers in our government.

6 I do believe Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder has just explained the popularity of Donald Trump.

7 Just hang this dirt bag. Soak a rope in pig's blood and hang him. Video record it so all the other wannabe's get to see what their fate will be.

8 Black Muslims are and will be a serious threat to America. They like Black Lives Matter are in reality nothing but American hating malcontents and racists. In fact, as far as I'm concerned they're way behind schedule.
