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.

Should muslims Own Guns? NO, NO, and NO!!! Reasons are obvious.

NO...Hell  NO!!!  They don't need to purchase or carry firearms. It isn't infringing on their rights...well, wait, they should'nt have rights ...They don't belong here!!.

Stupid question. Not only should insane, evil moslems not own/have/use guns, why are they even in our country??

Yes  their loyalities lie with Allah or Mohummed or whoever but not the USA> 

like i said muslim are not be authorized to have guns due to that will produce more terrorous and beside muslims are terrorous they need to be destroy

If you are an American Citizen there should be no class,race,religion including muslim that would be deficit any legal rights of any other citizen. Felons forfeit some rights under the law. 

With that said, if you lose your ability to pass background checks then you should have redress as to why you failed as an American Citizen (should be a timely redress also)

Please specify any other religion that REQUIRES it's followers to kill infidels? Yeah..that's the reason to keep weapons out of their hands.
If they denounce the Koran, maybe we could talk. But for a muslim, that's also punishable by death.
I am a most avid follower of constitutional rights, but being PC in this case is going to get innocent civilians killed. If they don't want to live here without weapons, let them return to their country of origin, where they can kill all the people they want, and no one cares.
OR, let the "moderate muslims" speak out against the killing of infidels....(crickets)....


Muslims aren't going into Gun Shops to buy guns, they're the Bad Guys, they get them on the Black Market, like they can obtains Drivers Licenses, Birth Certificates etc. Forbidding them Guns would do no good. We could say "We forbid Criminals from getting guns" would make about as much sense. Does anyone else notice how often these Perps are Black? Arming more, and more responsible Citizens would make sense to me, have a Course in High Schools on how to safely use a weapon, in self defense. The more Citizens armed, the fewer incidents. Praying for the Cop, may God make him well. Well done, Officer, we're proud of you, and support Police 100%.

  Most Muslims have no business living in the U.S.A., It stands for everything they hate, Liberty, Freedom, a nation of laws. It makes me think that they are here biding their time, waiting for the word to strike, hell no don't let em have guns. Trump is right, halt all muslim immigration for good, and we might as well deport the ones here, I'll bet the welfare rate would plummet.

I don't think they should be here period. No way should they have access to a gun.. Obuttface is making it impossible for us to have guns,, Why the hell is this ok,?? Public Law 414, passed in 1952..look it up..

The answer is yes, how else are they going to kill all us infidels that live in America.  If you want to make Obama happy we need to do more to assure they can kill us off quicker,  That's what Obama wants and a great deal of American's must also because they voted for him and still support him.  He won't admit limiting them coming into the U.S. would help lower the chance of terroist getting in because that works right into his plan.  We really aren't interested in fighting ISIS, we are only interested in political games.  The main interest of the Democratic Party and the Republlican party is self prevosation for them to stay/be in control.  Neilther one of them is interested in reducing the debt and they would rather the other party win then some one coming into office that would do away with the corruption and lies.  We have to remember; "It's all about me and my concept/idea other people don't manner."   After all "Everyone should be reasonable and do it my way."

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
