Good ole Arkansas Boy turned Muslim would-be Mujahideen lights up an Army-Navy recruiting station in Little Rock with a daylight drive-by (like you do), and has the sack to plead not guilty.
An Arkansas man accused of a shooting at a Little Rock military center in which one soldier was killed and another was wounded pleaded not guilty during an arraignment Tuesday, authorities said.
Abdulhakim Bledsoe, 24, of Little Rock faces a first-degree murder charge and 15 counts of engaging in a terrorist act, Little Rock Police Chief Stuart Thomas said.
The terrorist counts stem from the shots fired at an occupied building.
Bledsoe is being held without bail.
The suspect is a Muslim convert who has also gone by Carlos Bledsoe and Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad.
Little Rock Police Chief Stewart Thomas thinks the act was committed with the intent of harming military personnel. What clever piece of police work uncovered this fact, you ask?
Before the not guilty plea, authorities said Bledsoe waived his Miranda rights Monday and gave a video and paper statement indicating that there were “political and religious” motives in the shooting.
He “stated that he was a practicing Muslim, that he was mad at the U.S. military because of what it had done to Muslims in the past,” homicide detective Tommy Hudson said in a police report.
He was probably just mad that he lives in Arkansas, but I digress….
Here’s my problem.
A U.S. Soldier has been killed and another wounded. On U.S. soil.
An equally heinous crime in Kansas. An abortion doctor is gunned down in cold blood. In church.
Both crimes are horrible. Both are needless. Both are committed by what are probably equally mentally suspect people.
The President’s opinion of the abortion murders? Shock and outrage, of course. As it should be. After all, the shooter’s associates even said, “George Bush, Barack Obama — any politician that gives our tax money to Planned Parenthood and organizations that kill babies or participate in the killing of children deserve the same penalty.” Sounds like someone’s a part of a group that dislikes the American way of life and what it stands for.
The President’s opinion of a drive-by shooting on American Soldiers?
Well, I wish I could tell you.
I’m sure he’s outraged. At least, I hope so.
I’m sure he’ll get around to it.
You know, right after he puts the finishing touches on the Proclamation for National LGBT Appreciation Month.
