Witness: Man yelled about God after church killing [‘Will Of Allah’ (NOT God)]
pioneer press ^ | 4-1-13 | ap

ASHTABULA, Ohio—Witnesses say the 25-year-old man accused of walking into an Ohio church and fatally shooting his father after an Easter service Sunday was yelling about God and Allah after the killing. Police say Reshad Riddle walked into the Hiawatha Church of God in Christ in Ashtabula and killed his father, 52-year-old Richard Riddle, with a single shot from a handgun Sunday afternoon.

Associate Pastor Sean Adams told The (Ashtabula) Star Beacon newspaper that worshippers started screaming, ducking down and calling 911 on cellphones after the shooting.

""It was terrifying," Adams told the newspaper. "The children were screaming and people were dialing 911. We were afraid to breathe."

Adams said Reshad Riddle then continued into the church, still holding the gun, and yelled that the killing was "the will of Allah. This is the will of God."

Just another muslim doing the muslim shuffle. The important thing is not to succumb to islamophobia.

The title at 10:26 A is: “Police: Son Fatally Shoots Dad During Easter Service, Yells Killing Was ‘Will Of Allah’”

I am amazed at the country I now live in.

And, honestly, I feel some sympathy for the Germans who were stuck in Germany in 1940 or so. I imagine a fair number of them were asking “How did we get here? And why doesn’t someone shut that lying Goebbels guy up?”

But the train keeps rolling and there seems to be no way to stop it.

OK, I could possibly see a guy named Reshad as a Muslim but his father (Richard) was attending Easter service unless the son was a convert and picked his Muslim name.

I’m sure we’ll get every explicit detail about the gun, where it was purchased and nothing on the son such as toxicology, mental illness, Muslim convert, etc...

I’m sure the NYT will get to the bottom of this...

Funny how the number of shootings have really picked up since 0 made it his mission to disarm American citizens. I wonder how many shooters he’s paid or if they really do have a mind control device to make liberals (weak minded) idiots do their bidding? Sure seems like it.

yes and the article I linked from the Ashtabula paper has this in the sidebar:

>>Reshad Riddle has been no stranger to Ashtabula County law enforcement, court records show.
He was arrested and charged with two counts of felonious assault, kidnapping, abduction and tampering with evidence in 2006, Ashtabula County Common Pleas Court records show.
In 2007, Reshad Riddle faced a felonious assault charge and in 2009 he was charged with possession of drugs, tampering with evidence and possession of cocaine, court records show.
The charge stemmed from an incident when Reshad Riddle attempted to cut his girlfriend’s throat, police reports show.

...btw I wonder if Reshad is the younger Riddle’s original given name. Maybe it was “Richard” and he changed it something more Arabic sounding...

Sounds like a prison covert. Just the type Islam is so hot to recruit. As for slitting his girlfriend’s throat, sound’s like he took it right out of a Muslim rule book - under “sacramental rituals.”

The mere presence of a firearm drives some people to murder.

It’s like Reefer Madness, only worse.

>>Biblical and inspirational quotes are posted on what appears to be Reshad Riddle’s Facebook page. On the day of the shooting Riddle shared a photo that read, “I believe in Jesus Christ and have accepted him as my personal Savior…if you Love God and are not afraid to show it, repost this.”
A more cryptic post published the same day said, “they bout to find out how real scripture 440 525 84.”

Oh, and I take it that this could be one of the NOI type converts, though either type is evil. Though he also has a Somali look about him, in spite of his father’s name.

The Church of God in Christ (COGIC) is a black Pentecostal denomination. It’s very likely that the son changed his name after converting to Islam.

I’m guessing he will not be locked away in solitary like he should be and he will likely be back on the street in a couple of years.

After a month in the prison I envision he would not talk so proud. The only guarantee he would get would be a long and miserable life in tortured isolation.

Sudden Jihad. An act of militant Islamic murder of a Christian. The bastard should have been loaded feet first into a wood chipper...along with a ham sandwich.
