Domestic terrorism- get him of the streets – attempted murder – we don't need to share our collective American values with his reckless radicalized lunacy . 🕉 🦖 ☄️
A (possible) attack of Terror, what's Upsetting for the Altra left media is the Fact it was Not the Proud boys , The difference is Muslims Attack there Objective But let's all start playing this down
Ban guns. Because that stopped a machete attack.
KERALA IS WORLD TERRORISTS CENTER
You couldn’t pay me to live in New York. Rats.
I hope those officers were vaccinated
She said 2 officers was struck with the machete but then say 3 officers was released from the hospital earlier today. How many officers was injured? This is so sad…
Why are the crazies always so hot.
Why don't they tell about his will in backpack? A new convert to Islam, advised his mom to convert for the fear of hellfire.. and advised his brother to follow the suit and repent for being a Christian, detested his another brother because he's a marine..
Was on way to Afghanistan..
People simply need to understand if there is God up there he would show up atleast.. there is no proof of God. Yet these foolish Wannabes kills innocent ppl.
seriously? a native American Muslim?
Ilhan Omar married her Brother 🤣🤣🤣
Ah yes… the religion of "peace" strikes again 🤣
That's not a machete, it's a kukri.
Give this man bail. That's the New York way.
Why Justin Timberlake? Why?
He's lucky he only got hit in the shoulder. As many officers that were there, he's lucky there was anything left of him.
Lol – his letter, "Give me a Muslim burial…unless I die. In that case, I'm sorry, mom."
Wow, he just threw his life away for nothing
Coming soon to a neighborhood near you
imagine what one indoctrinated person can do? Its a good thing he is so Stupid in his attack. what will happen if someone that knows how to think and knows how to plan does it
I love how none of this worked out for him😂No one died thank God & he lived through it all😂🤡💀
He's white. That explains why he is still alive after all he did. Police didn't fear for their lives despite the machete.
Idaho now New York lol. These whte folks can't behave in public.
He was on the RADER of the HOMELAND SECURITY but they busy 24/7 follow undocumented innocent people ,so he was on large till he take action 🎬 on NYPD
Seems like a false flag. NYPD is always looking for a handout and pity.
1:14 pause this frame.
This is what American greed produces.learn to love it because it's only gonna get worse
That was a super lame suicide attempt. Thank you for NOT killing him. Maybe he can find help. He clearly needs it.
Sad thing is the inmates are gonna crown him in prison for this.
why did they not just keep shooting him?
I bet the suspect is a big time trump supporter
Where are the racists now
When you have a leader that wants lawlessness this is what happens
It’s called a kukri.
Well, I wonder if bail reform will help him out so he can join the NYC community once again. I wouldn't be surprised.
