When I heard they caught the Kansas City highway sniper, I told a friend in e-mail, “My first question is: is his name Mohammed?” And, yes, it is Mohammed. Mohammed Pedro Whitaker was arrested for 12 shooting incidents and three injuries on Kansas City highways. Of course, they don’t mention jihad or Islam in any of the reports, but there is no coincidence that a man named Mohammed is the Kansas City highway sniper. We know why he did it. Two words: Islam, jihad. Oh, and if Barack Obama had a son . . . .
Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters-Baker announced that Mohammed Pedro Whitaker, 27, has been charged with 18 felony counts related to 12 shooting incidents on Kansas City highways. Baker said additional charges are expected as the investigation continues.
Of the 18 counts, seven counts include the unlawful use of a weapon, two counts include the unlawful use of a weapon that resulted in an injury and nine counts of armed criminal action. “Charges would not be filed if we weren’t confident we had the person responsible for these shootings,” Baker said. She said she had no evidence that anyone else was involved.
Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forte said he’s also confident they have their man. “I have a level in confidence that the person in custody is responsible for what has been going on on our streets,” Forte said.
Before charges were announced, FOX 4’s Robert Townsend spoke with Whitaker’s father, Edward Whitaker, who said his son is innocent. “My son is not the highway shooter,” Edward Whitaker said. “I don’t think he did what they are accusing him of. He is not a murderer or a shooter. He’s not a violent person.” Edward said he spoke with his son a couple of weeks ago. “We last talked April 7th, and everything appeared to be normal,” he said. “He asked to borrow some money.”
Yup, I’m sure we’ll be told that this has nothing to do with Islam, but that he was poor and needed money. Or was mentally ill. Or some other such usual BS.
According to court documents, ballistics tests connected .380 caliber bullets recovered from shooting incidents from March 18 to April 6. Witness reports linked Whitaker’s car to the crimes. Additionally, court records indicated while Whitaker was under police surveillance, he was seen pacing cars in their blind spots while on the highway. . . . Since March, police confirmed 20 highway shootings had been reported since March. Police linked 12 of those shootings in which three people were injured.
It’s homegrown Islamic terrorism. Plain and simple.
