Philadelphia: Muslim Attempts to Assassinate Cop, Says Did It in Name of Islam (Video)

Not the first Muslim to attempt the assassination of a Philly cop. Others succeeded. At least one such Muslim is a cause-celeb for Muslims and the Left.

In his confession, the shooter kept repeating “I follow Allah, I pledge my allegiance to the Islamic state,” Homicide Capt. Clark says.

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Authorities say a Philadelphia police officer is recovering after he was shot several times during an ambush late Thursday night in West Philadelphia.

Philadelphia police commissioner Richard Ross says the officer was sitting in his patrol car around 11:30 p.m. at 60th and Spruce Streets when a gunman fired 11 shots through the driver’s side of the car.

Police are calling it an “attempted assassination.”

In a press conference, Commissioner Ross said the gun used in the attack was a stolen police firearm.

“It was stolen back in October of 2013. It was reported, and that is one of the things you regret the most when an officer’s gun is stolen, when it is used against one of your own.”


The officer, 33-year-old Jesse Hartnett, was struck several times, authorities say.

“Shots fired! I’m shot! I’m bleeding heavily!” Hartnett can be heard yelling on police radio.

Commissioner Ross says the suspect has given a full confession, saying he did it in the name of Islam.

“According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran.”

Sources say the suspect’s full confession of the alleged attack was written down and recorded on video.

Police sources identify the suspect as Edward Archer, of Yeadon.

“When you look at the video, this is one of the scariest things I’ve ever seen,” Commissioner Ross said. “This guy tried to execute the police officer. The police officer had no idea he was coming. It’s amazing he’s alive.”

Commissioner Ross said later, “We’re thankful to God he’s here today because it easily could’ve been a police funeral.” (video)

Hartnett was taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center where he underwent surgery for a broken arm. Ross says the officer’s arm suffered significant damage and that he has a long road to recovery, but he is expected to be okay.

Hartnett returned fire and struck the 30-year-old suspect at least three times. The suspect tried to escape on foot, authorities say, but was quickly caught and taken to the hospital.

Sources say the wounded officer told investigators that Archer walked up to the car, appeared to be about to ask for directions when he pulled a 9 mm and opened up with 13 shots. The officer was hit then fired back and the suspect was also wounded, but he does not have life-threatening injuries.

District Attorney Seth Williams says “I’m very thankful the officer is alive. This shows us the need for smarter laws when it relates to guns on the street. My office is going to do all that we can to ensure the defendant is held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”

Pure insanity. The District Attorney wants smarter laws to guns on the street? Criminals do not abide by laws!!! Furthermore, the gun used was stolen from the cops!! How would any gun law have stopped this? Here’s one, not allowing criminals prone to gun violence to walk the streets, h/t JWF.

via Confessed cop shooter & Muslim terrorist, Edward Archer pleaded guilty to a 2012 armed assault (we made the title more accurate)

Edward Archer, 30, of Yeadon, has been named as the suspect who ambushed Philadelphia Police officer Jesse Hartnett and firing 13 shots at the officer at 60th and Spruce streets in West Philadelphia. Archer was on parole and awaiting a hearing scheduled for January 19, stemming from a 2012 armed assault.

According to court documents, Archer pleaded guilty to simple assault and carrying a firearm without a license after police said he pointed a gun he wasn’t licensed to carry at a man’s stomach, threatened him and then chased the man with the gun when the victim had broken free.

Archer was tracked down by police in 2013 and faced bevy of charges that included aggravated assault, conspiracy, terroristic threats, simple assault and others that involved firearms. He pleaded guilty last year to carrying a gun without a license, a third-degree felony, and simple assault, a second-degree misdemeanor.

According to court documents, Archer was sentenced to nine to 13 months in prison, was allowed to count time served and was paroled. Records show he was arrested April 14, 2013 and was released April 30, 2013 after posting partial bail.

Clearly what we need are smarter prosecutors, smarter district attorneys, smarter judges and definitely smarter mayors. Not to mention smarter voters. In addition to smarter laws on Islam in the jail system, smarter laws on mosques and imams and who we allow into the country.

  1. Officials everywhere cover for Muslim Mayhem and Murder. They keep pretending that it has absolutely nothing to do with the Bogus religion of Islam. It’s all just one great big misunderstanding, don’t you know? Islam is just a wonderful “religion” and Muslims are the most peaceful people around. To accuse any of them of violence against non-Muslims is to malign those poor, harmless, misunderstood creatures. How dare you, you horrible Islamophobe!

    • It has everything to do with the Islamic Religion. Muslims do not like secular governments, the laws legislated by secular governments and the police forces that enforce NON Sharia secular government laws. Their Imam’s tell Muslims they are above secular laws and need only follow Sharia Law. Wake up America, Islam is staring us in the face these Muslims need to be deported.

  2. The mayor’s ludicrous conclusions notwithstanding, I strongly suspect that this crime is yet another bitter fruit of the amazingly successful Muslim ministries in US prisons.

  3. I love it when police get shot by Muslims,now the dumb ass police might stop protecting and defending these inbred Muslim paedophile terrorist filth, it’s even better when left-wing liberal traitors get shot or killed by anyone

  4. It was both sad and disgusting to watch the person speaking last night saying that piece of dog scum dirt back Islamic terrorist had nothing to do with islam! That was the biggest load of crap yet!..IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH islam! EVERYTHING. The dirt bag islamist even told him why…Our Freedom, Our Laws, Our way of life is in conflict with islam/sharia. STOP COVERING FOR THIS VILE FILTHY religion/cult/ideology!

  5. It appears that the European Governments and the American Government have submitted to Islam and plan to at some point implement Sharia law. That’s the only logical reason for large scale cover up for the Muslims. They must continue the “peaceful” narrative until they have the population of Muslims high enough to begin the transition process and enforce Islamic laws. I do not believe that the Government officials of these Nations are stupid and believe the crap they are telling us, they aren’t blind, they see the rapes, murders, attacks on other religions. There can be no other explanation for the continued protection of our Governments are providing the Muslims. If anyone has a logical explanation for the actions of our Government officials other than submission, please do tell me.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
