Of course he was a convict.
Elton Simpson was the first figure identified in the latest eruption from the Religion of Peace an attempted massacre at an exhibition of anti-Islamist cartoons in suburban Garland, Texas, which ended in the shooting of Simpson and his coconspirator, because Texas is where terrorists go to get out-gunned at an art show. Simpson and his pal are as dead as a tuna casserole in Texas, we shoot back.
We got lucky when luck wasnt what we needed.
Simpson was, like the overwhelming majority of murderers and most of those who commit serious violent crimes, already known to the authorities. He had been investigated by the FBI on the suspicion that he was attempting to travel to Somalia to engage in jihad. He was convicted of lying to the FBI in that episode, and sentenced to . . . probation. The average sentence for a tax-related crime in these United States is 31 months in a federal penitentiary, but for attempting to join up with a gang of savages who are merrily beheading, torturing, enslaving, and raping their way around the world? Probation, and damned little subsequent oversight, apparently.

I hesitate to discuss this openly but some sort of traveling weekly event of this type with built in gun blinds....disguised as coat closets....might be a lot of fun.
Have to go to lucianne to get news anymore, but the perp’s father says plenty against his son’s choice.
NYC cop died, at 25 years of age. How long before it gets up on FR, I wonder.
Luck speaks with true aim ... Aim True America!
and in two weeks and a day ... we become America ....
Don’t mess with Texas is not just a anti-litter slogan!
nope to Key West ... yep, it hurts our heart America but let it come and let it not hide .... Set It Free!!
I see this as less luck, and more being prepared, thinking with clear purpose, and following through.
Chalk one up for Texas. (or is it two)
call me dumb but just what would it be supposed to do.
is it supposed to lure terrorists into attacking, whereupon the terrorists will be attacked themselves?
we’ve quit handing out “wanted dead or alive” status on suspects for the most part
yes...a Jihadist tourist trap,..if you will...../s
Makes you wonder what might happen and a rodeo high school football game.
Why aren't the "constitutional conservatives" in DC going a little bit crazy? Are they still *horing for their cheap labor pay masters?
Well put. But we better not get overconfident. These guys aren’t very good, but consider how different things might be if they were.
prayers for closure!
If it is the cop shot in the face, there are lot's of threads on him and his dying.
I agree with that. I honestly can’t believe that security officer is still alive.
yep, two down ... take a walk ... take twenty five thousand, please ...
What's that old phrase, something about "Luck is when preparation meets opportunity".
