They're Still Here
Just be aware Officers. People exist who mean to do you harm:
- A Massachusetts man is in custody in connection with Tuesday’s shooting of a man police say was radicalized by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.
Evans says the shooting was caught on nearby surveillance cameras, and the video shows police guns weren’t drawn at first.
“And they kept retreating, verbally giving commands to ‘drop the weapon, drop the weapon,”‘ Evans said. “At some point the individual — proximity came [so] close that the officers were in danger.”
Federal law enforcement sources say Rahim had been on joint terrorism task force radar for several months, but in recent weeks they began tracking him around the clock.
- It now appears that the authorities have a good handle on what Rahim and his accomplice David Wright, arrested on Tuesday night, were planning. “We believe the intent was to behead a police officer,” an official told the Boston Globe on Wednesday morning. “We knew the plot had to be stopped. They were planning to take action Tuesday.
- His brother, an Imam in a mosque in Oakland, tweeted that, before Rahim was shot, he was on the phone with his father and his last words were, "I can't breathe."
Not likely, but numerous chest wounds will do that.
