    Police: Gunman shot cop 'in name of Islam'

    The story is kind of embarrassing with the repeated mentions of Islam followed by "it's unclear if it's Islam" stuff, but regardless, someone still tried to execute a police officer at near point-blank range.

    Side note: I used to live pretty close to Yeadon (where the suspect is from). I can't for the life of me figure out how anyone could get "radicalized" there. Most troublemakers are too busy becoming methheads.

    Don't know when the last time you've been to Yeadon MisterCreoste but Meth is not the drug of choice there. At any rate, this guy has mental problems. He is a devout Muslim and his family wanted him to get help. The shooting occurred in an African American community. The officer is white. Not an ISIS case. It's more like a nut case doing it in the name of ISIS.

    Mental health, huh? Devout Muslim but religion is not a factor, huh?

    Another unintended consequence of needlessly arming the police.

    Probably just a fan of ISIS' healthcare system:

    Can we change the thread title so as not to needlessly alarm people? This is absurd.

    While we're at it, mods, please delete all references to Islam.

    Plus, trigger warning needs to be displayed and the owner of the site needs to send cuddly puppies to the sensitive ones.

    Please don't include my posts in your inanity.

    On a board of mostly journalists and news junkies, this thread title is inappropriate, at best.

    You seem to be the kind of "journalist" MC alludes to at the beginning of the OP. Also, did I miss your similar insistence on accuracy and appropriateness in the militia thread?

    What kind of Muslim name is D-Money anyway?
