Info so far on the ISIS wannabe attack at the Mohammad Cartoon Context in Garland, TX yesterday is a bit perplexing to understand. The two men who carried out the attack, Elton Simpson and Nadir Soofi, are said to have both been heavily armed with Assault Rifles, and wearing body armor. They tried to enter the parking lot of the venue for the event through a rear entrance, that was only guarded by two officers: a local school district security officer, and a Garland PD traffic officer. A total of 36 armed officers were guarding the event, and the entire Garland SWAT team and their police chief were on site. So the terrorists tried entering the most weakly guarded back entrance of the heavily defended event. They managed to wound the school district security officer, who fell down after suffering a mild ankle wound. However, while they were shooting at him, it is being reported that the traffic cop then killed both men within a matter of a few seconds, just using his handgun. Apparently the range was quite close, and under 25 yards. One would think that two men with semiauto rifles would have had the advantage in such a scenario. When I first heard about this incident, I assumed that they must have driven up close to the main entrance, where the Garland PD SWAT team would have all opened up on them. That would have certainly been a suicidal scenario for them. But instead, the terrorist died at the most outer checkpoint, and were slain by a single Traffic Cop, using only his handgun. Should not the advantage in this gunfight have theoretically been in favor of the terrorists? And if so, why then did they fail so badly in this gun fight? One would expect a SWAT team officer to be an excellent shot, but this Traffic officer must really be damn good with a pistol, to have done so very well in such a stressful gunfight. Especially since they were wearing body armor. Do you think that all credit should go to him? Or do you think that these wannabe ISIS fighters were themselves perhaps incompetent, and handled themselves poorly? After all, they just barely wounded the other officer. It should be interesting to learn more about the specifics of this gunfight, as more details are made public. I wonder if Simpson and Soofi envisioned themselves being as successful as the two Charlie Hebdo gunmen, who managed to kill a policeman and so many defenseless people. I guess that they ended up getting a lot more than they bargained for, by going up against the Garland Police Department. Garland was certainly not a repeat of Paris. In fact, it was just the opposite. So how did we get such a good result in this shootout? Was it pure luck? An act of God? Or should we all simply praise this unnamed Traffic Officer as a hero? http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/05/04/police-shooting-at-muhammad-cartoon-contest-in-texas/ .
