Philly Cop Ambushed, Shot ‘in Name of Islam’

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.

Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”

In a press conference, Commissioner Ross said the gun used in the attack was a stolen police firearm.

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.

Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam.

Sources say the suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video.

Police sources identify the suspect as Edward Archer, of Yeadon.

“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.”

Hartnett was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he underwent surgery for a broken arm. Ross says the officer’s arm suffered significant damage and that he has a long road to recovery, but he is expected to be okay.

His father, Robert Hartnett says, “It’s going to be a tough road, but he’s a tough guy… I told him I love him, and I’m proud of him and he is an excellent person.”

Hartnett returned fire and struck the 30-year-old suspect at least three times. The suspect tried to escape on foot, authorities say, but was quickly caught and taken to the hospital.

Sources say the wounded officer told investigators that Archer walked up to the car, appeared to be about to ask for directions when he pulled a 9 mm and opened up with 13 shots.  The officer was hit then fired back and the suspect was also wounded, but he does not have life-threatening injuries.

DA Seth Williams says “I’m very thankful the officer is alive. This shows us the need for smarter laws when it relates to guns on the street. My office is going to do all that we can to ensure the defendant is held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf released the following statement: ‘We are thankful that Officer Hartnett is alive and not facing life-threatening injuries after being ambushed. We wish him and his family the best during his recovery. This alleged intentional act of violence against an officer seeking to help a fellow citizen is horrifying and has no place in Pennsylvania.’

Hartnett is an 18th district officer with five years on the force. The FBI is now assisting in the investigation.

And you should, but there is this also.  Our Constitution is based on scripture in its jurisdictions. Example:  charity belongs to the church, the family and the individual. Not the government. Example:  don't work—don't eat. So our Constitution does not authorize government to provide food or charity. Actually, the Bible was the most referred to source by the Founders.

Declaration acknowledges Law of Nature and Nature's God as the intended foundation of our Constitution. Founders were mostly devout Christians. First Congress funded our first printed Bibles to put in schools. There is so much more....Ten Commandments written into law in the colonies. All Preambles acknowledge God, our Creator, or Divine Providence. All of them.

Christians need to know BOTH, because it is where and why we were designed to be free. It is much easier to fight FOR the Constitution when you have read the founders' writings, quotes, and know where they came from and then to add scripture to it.....it changes the picture of the debate about our "inalienable " rights.

They do not have rights, they are not citizens ( legally )  http://1776.website/muslims-already-banned-from-usa-by-law-in-1952/

Al   The war ended for the Japanese. Remember?

Al   You are quite apparently trying to rile everyone with your ignorant arguments.  You are comparing islam with Christianity and there is no comparison, period. As several others have pointed out, Christians are not told they should kill the someone because he does not become a Christian, unlike muslims, who do.

MOST of the muslims in this country are illegals..........they don't have CONSTITUTIONAL rights.

       YOU ARE 100%  RIGHT AND I AGREE WITH YOU !!  HERE ILLEGALLY NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I SAY ON GUNS !!!!  WE DON'T KNOW WHO IS WHO AND THERE IS NO WAY OF FINDING OUT !!  THEY HAVE NO RECORDS IN THEIR COUNTRY WHICH WE CAN FIND OUT FROM !!  NO GUNS !!!!!!  

Anyone who has an agenda of PREMEDITATED MURDER, as a mainstay of their RELIGION, should NEVER  have access to a gun. That religious concept is abhorrent to a free society, and CANNOT be ALLOWED!!!

NO, Muslims shouldn't have firearms, they have an atrocious record for shooting people and they're allowed to own guns!!!  I've never gotten into trouble with the law, I'm a veteran, an Honor-man in the U.S. Marine Corps, I served in combat and was honorably discharged, yet I'm not allowed to own a firearm. What's wrong with this picture?

There are enough gun laws already for law abiding citizens to follow.

America needs to deport all government sanctioned entries, deport all illegals, raid and

shut down all muzlm mosques. America needs deport all muzlms back to their mutual thinking muzlms.

America will save many American lives, create many jobs for Americans, basically save Free America  just by following the advise above.

Terrific idea. Thank u Tea Party for putting this out there. They are not citizens & are not entitled to our privileges. Right?

are you being sarcastic?

If they want to be Americans and have weapons, let them deny Islam. Their own people will take care of them. So much for moderate muslims....

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
