The Philadelphia Police Department received an anonymous tip claiming “more radical” associates of the Islamist who shot Officer Jesse Hartnett are looking to shoot more police officers.
A woman approached a Philadelphia police officer anonymously Saturday night to warn that officers were in danger because three “radical” associates of confessed gunman Edward Archer’s were at large.
The PPD Counterterrorism Unit and the FBI were investigating allegations from the tipster that the man who shot Hartnett was associated with a small group of men with radical beliefs, and warned that “the threat to police is not over.”
Specifically, she said there were three other men, more “radical” in their beliefs than Archer.
Remember, though, Philly mayor James Kenney stated the Hartnett shooting has nothing to do with Islam, so I see no need to take extra safety precautions.
The tipster said the three men in the group “still frequent the 6100 block of Pine,” near where Hartnett was shot. She warned police to “be careful.”
The woman said Archer had attended the Masjid Mujahideen mosque on 60th Street near Pine. She contended that an imam there had “lied” when he said Archer was not associated with the mosque.
Oh, please. For that to be true, you would have to believe an imam is not above lying to protect his fellow Muslim and defend his faith against accusations from filthy infidels.
