    NYT Now New York Police Fatally Shoot Man Who Attacked Officer With a Hatchet

    By J. DAVID GOODMANOCT. 23, 2014
    Inside



    Police officers shot and killed a hatchet-wielding man on Thursday on a Queens street after he struck one of the officers in the head with the blade, the police said. A woman who was a bystander was also wounded in the gunfire.
    The man, who was not immediately identified by the police, died at the scene. The officer, also not identified, was said to be alert at Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, according to Deputy Chief Kim Y. Royster, a top police spokeswoman. Details of the woman’s injuries were not immediately clear, though they did not initially appear to be life-threatening.
    The violence, in a preliminary police account of the scene, appeared to explode out of nowhere on the sidewalk of Jamaica Avenue near 160th Street just after 2 p.m. Four uniformed officers assigned to foot patrol in the area were standing together when the man approached them, raised the hatchet and struck one of the officers in the head, Chief Royster said.
    One or more other officers drew their weapons and opened fire several times on the man, killing him. It was not immediately clear where the woman who was struck in the hail of gunfire had been standing, but Chief Royster said she appeared to be unconnected to the suspect.
    A second officer may have been struck in the arm during the hatchet attack, the police said.

    The man's facebook page (all homeless men have a FB page, and a new Eastwig hatchet) proves he was a Mooge just like the killer in OK, who was the 14th beheading since the 1970's

    Thompson's activity on social media indicated he was a convert to Islam and included rants about injustices in American society and oppression abroad but offered no clear evidence of any direct affiliation with terror groups, police said.
    "The common thread going through those conversations are anti-western, anti-government, and in some cases anti-white," said John Miller, the NYPD's Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counter-terrorism.

    Just found out he was a black American that recently converted to Islam. How many angry people from Ferguson are being recruited to be "Lone Wolves" as we speak? If we get enough "Lone Wolves" things could escalate pretty quick!
    And the same loudmouth politicians who are stoking the racial flames in this country want to disarm civilians!

    Note Columbia U. and Teacher Cred,,just another Son of Obama
    The father of the Navy veteran who attacked four New York City police officers with a hatchet earlier this week wanted to kill white people, his father told reporters Saturday.
    Ralph Thompson told the New York Post that his son Zale "committed suicide" when he attacked the officers in Jamaica, Queens Thursday evening, striking two of them before he was fatally shot.
    "And he was taking one of y'all with him," the elder Thompson added, later clarifying that the "y'all" was a reference to white people.
    "He just said, 'They have to pay for all their unfairness,'" Ralph Thompson added. "Unfairness for the way they treat black people."
    The Post reported that three of the four officers Thompson attacked are white, while the fourth is Hispanic.
