The man who attempted to assassinate a Philadelphia police officer, Edward Archer, reportedly confessed that he did it in the name of Islam.
ABC 6 reports that the shooter had pledged allegiance to ISIS.
But don’t worry. Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney wanted to make it clear that the shooting had nothing to do with “being a Muslim or the Islamic faith.”
Really? Well, the shooter seemed to think so.
So what was to blame? Kenney said, “There are just too many guns on the streets and I think our national government needs to do something about that.”
On Kenney’s first day in office he made Philadelphia a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants. Yeah, this is the same guy who told Chick-Fil-A that “there is no place for this type of hate in our great City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection” because the company’s president supports traditional marriage.
(Good news, the police officer seems to be recovering.)
