Haamid Zaid: Easter Walmart Jihadist Muslim Out on Bond Deliberately Crashed Into Americans TWICE

By Debbie Schlussel

On Sunday, as I was getting ready for my absence for the last days of Passover, I heard the news of a man crashing his vehicle into Walmart and then getting out and attacking customers. I wondered, since it was Easter and reminded me of several other vehicle jihads by Muslims–including a Palestinian Muslim deliberately driving into a Home Depot because he opposed secure American borders–if this attacker was Muslim also. And, after I returned online Tuesday Night, I learned that my suspicions proved correct. The man is Haamid Ade Zaid. But, since learning his name, the news about this guy has gotten worse. This is apparently his second vehicle jihad, and he–incredibly!–was out on bond for the first one. His first victim said Zaid was clearly on a “mission” to hurt people. Yup, that’s jihad. The guy is an Islamic terrorist. Period.


Haamid Ade Zaid: Jihadist on a Mission to Harm Americans, But Got Bond Anyway

Incredibly, authorities initially dismissed the Walmart incident by saying that Haamid Zaid, was on drugs or drunk or mentally unstable. But, again, this is the SECOND TIME that this Muslim man sought to drive his car into Americans and cause harm to them. Clearly, this isn’t about drugs, depression, or being nuts. It’s about jihad against Americans. And, yet, this jihadist was out on bail to do it a second time, which he carefully timed for Easter Sunday. No coincidence.

SAN JOSE — In a story that is racking up national headlines, police say a drug-addled Seaside native crashed his car into an East San Jose Walmart and bludgeoned customers and an employee with a blunt object before he was tackled by onlookers Sunday morning.

Haamid Ade Zaid, 33, was booked into Santa Clara County jail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, hit and run, being under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest, according to the San Jose Police Department. He was identified as a Seaside resident by police, but a relative said he now lives in San Jose.Zaid is being held without bail in connection with the chaotic attack that rattled an Easter Sunday shopping crowd and ended with four people injured, one seriously. A Walmart employee was among the victims.

Officer Albert Morales said SJPD had no previous contact with Zaid until Sunday. Santa Clara County has a handful of court cases involving Zaid. . . . Zaid’s mother, Rosemary, told NBC Bay Area that she had no explanation for the actions of her son, a Seaside High School graduate she said runs an auto-restoration shop in San Jose. “This isn’t him, this isn’t him, this is not what he’s like,” Rosemary Zaid told the station. “He’s a good man, a business man. He’s never done drugs.”

Riiiiight. Let me guess: Rosemary Zaid is one of these desperate, dumbass American chicks who put her vagina first before what’s good for America and married some Muslim extremist, giving birth to his jihadist kid. That’s the way it often goes and appears to be the case here. More:

Questions are being raised about why a 33-year-old man accused of ramming a car into the front door of a San Jose Walmart store was out on bail after a similar incident. Haamid Zaid is facing several charges, including hit-and-run and being under the influence of drugs.

Surveillance video from the Capitol Premier Car Wash shows what happened just over three months before the Walmart crash. A man police identified as Haamid Zaid drove a silver Lexus right through double glass doors, smashing into merchandise shelves and almost crushing two employees. “It seems to me he’s on some sort of mission to inflict harm on individuals and prepared to kill people, I suppose,” car wash owner Chuck Brassfield said.

Brassfield says he was surprised when he learned that Zaid is accused of doing the same thing on Easter Sunday at a Walmart. “I had assumed that this fellow was still in jail after this incident. It’s apparent that he wasn’t, and I’m not so sure that he’ll be in jail much longer either,” Brassfield said.

So, why was Zaid released on a $20,000 bail? It was a “pretty standard case,” said Jim Sibley, the Supervising Deputy District Attorney. “He did, I believe, Jan. 22 fail to appear in court. An attorney appeared on his behalf, and over our objection the court gave him an additional date and did issue a warrant for his arrest. But he was at that point just pending misdemeanor cases. There was nothing looking at that case that would have foreshadowed what we see here today.”

The District Attorney’s office concluded Zaid lost control of the car at the car wash after hitting another vehicle a few miles away, but Brassfield doesn’t buy that. “He was on a mission of some sort. This was not an accidentally running into the door of a building,” he said.

Exactly. Sounds like Mr. Brassfield should be the prosecutor and Deputy District Attorney Jim Sibley should be washing cars. Because this man was let out on the street again in his “pretty standard case” jihad, people were seriously injured and almost killed.

But, hey, he’s just a druggie . . . who happens to have the name Haamid (and twice targeted Americans for harm), right?

Just a “pretty standard case” in an America where they are at war against us and we are too busy at the mall.

I was waiting for this column. I was shocked when I heard yesterday that there was a Jihadi bent to this story. I had come across it but I read so many news stories I didn’t give it my attention because I just thought he was a stupid nutter. If I had known his name that would have gotten my attention STAT!

I have to train my brain to question these things as DS does. She had a hunch and I didn’t. I just skipped over the story.

I want this country to wake up. This is just another millionth example of proof that there are no moderate Moooooooslims.

The ignorance and PC dismissing of their danger (Islam/Mooooooslims) will continue to go on in this oblivious country. I’m sick of it!

Skunky on April 4, 2013 at 11:52 am


    Early reports identified him as a male, nothing more. That was (again) intentional. After all, we don’t want to upset the intended victims, do we?

    When I heard the story, I searched to find out if it was a Mo knowing it was… I mean, who else? Murder for Allah.

    He will be freed again to kill until he succeeds, then he will get a deal because (after all) he is “sick” not muzzie. So, then we will place him in a mental hospital until he slips through the cracks back into society to kill again.

    We are too stoooopid to survive.

    As goes, so goes.. on April 4, 2013 at 12:40 pm

      That’s correct, As Goes Israel…it would have peaked my interest if they highlighted his name. We know the game there.

      I have more training to do as it didn’t occur to me but it’s good to know many who frequent here have their spidey sense working well and full-tilt boogie. I aspire to be with y’all!!

      Skunky on April 4, 2013 at 12:46 pm

[Article quoted by Debbie (I used caps at the end) – The District Attorney’s office concluded Zaid lost control of the car at the car wash after hitting another vehicle A FEW MILES AWAY]

Huh??? So what if he did lose control A FEW MILES AWAY? Is that DA brain dead???!!!

I_AM_ME on April 4, 2013 at 12:10 pm

    This point is exactly what stood out most for me, too; you took the words right out of my keyboard.

    FactsRule on April 4, 2013 at 1:06 pm

These law enforcement types need to understand that drugs and jihad go together. The word “assassin” comes from the trained, mercenary killers of the Middle Ages who used HASHISH prior to going out to murder.

Italkit on April 4, 2013 at 12:15 pm

    Well said and very truly.

    Know your history!!

    As goes, so goes.. on April 4, 2013 at 12:42 pm

I sensed this was the case, and figured that Debbie would get to the bottom of it if true. Our “leadership” has their head buried so deep in the sand that their butt is doing the mental work now. Small wonder we’re so screwed up. As my wife said to her friends when they watched Chinese troops march into Hong Kong in the late 1990s… we’re doomed.

Russ on April 4, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    “our leadership”?

    I think not; but it is rather, their citizenry who have their “heads in the sand”, but not there, either, but too long in front of the boob tube, and too long in front of the breakfast table, and the lunch table, the dinner table and various in-between and late night snack tables; so, . . . yes, . . . the nation is, . . . doomed, . . .

    PhillipGaley on April 5, 2013 at 5:11 pm

Hmm, not nearly as effective as a self detonating Jihadi.

Could it be the new models want to create as much death and chaos as possible by exploiting the idiocy of our legal system without actually getting themselves killed in the process and are just extremely bad at it?

Is he just a test model to see how much they can get away with?

Jihadi’s usually do perform a thorough reconnaissance before launching an attack so it’s possible.

I guess he could also be some random crazy guy.

Frankz on April 4, 2013 at 1:47 pm

I KNEW that this was the case. Too bad somebody wasn’t tough enough to decorate his face for him once he got out and started assaulting shoppers. Cursed dogs.

samurai on April 4, 2013 at 1:50 pm

This is the most stupid blatantly racist article I have ever seen. This guy is a ghetto thug, and has no ties to any terrorist groups. He is a DRUG addict and has been arrested 10 or more times since 2011, here’s the link:http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2013/04/02/san-jose-walmart-rampage-suspect-in-court-on-unrelated-charges/

He’s BLACK and American, he was born here and grew up in Seaside, he’s not Muslim in anyway. Stop blaming other countries for all the crazy americans, and loose laws on gun control and drug addicts

JT: There are no Black American Muslims? Wow, what planet have you been living on? Not earth. DS

John Taylor on April 4, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    I reckon “John Taylor” comes from the planet “Duran Duran”, just like the movie ‘Barbarella’!

    Imbeciles like “John Taylor” really make me sick. So arrogant in their ignorance. He doesn’t know a bloody thing but he sure enough is gonna set us all straight.

    2013 is annoying me very much. Grrr.

    Skunky on April 4, 2013 at 5:35 pm

@John Taylor: You’re and idiot. You voted for Obama, didn’t you? It is idiots like you that are ruining MY country. American blacks that aren’t Muslims don’t have names like Haamid Zaid. There are only two ways to get a name like that. You come from a Muslim country, or you change your name. WTF does this have to do with gun control? He used a car in his crime, you jackass. In my opinion, it doesn’t have much to do with drugs, either. He wanted to hurt people before he got high that day. And, not only are you stupid, you are a hippocrite. People who lecture about guns and racism are the same people that scream and cry when they hear about people being punished for drug crimes. This isn’t MSNBC,CNN or an Obama press conference. Your bullshit won’t fly here.

RT on April 4, 2013 at 2:34 pm

John Taylor, how is this article “racist” in you’re warped and perverted view sir? Did you read this whole article word for word, or are you just pulling our leg. And the reason why you think this guy is not a muslim is because you posted a link from “San Francisco”, of course that link you forwarded here didn’t mentioned his exact faith and his overall motives, so that’s why you don’t think the POS isn’t a muslim.

Haamid Zaid collided his vehicle into those few people for “jihad”, do you know the terminology of jihad? Jihad clearly means “violence against the infidels and/or non-believers”, of course the term doesn’t mean terrorism, but it’s still a term that means violence and NOT peace and love, so enough with the PC crap and enough with the dhimmtude John.

Now to the article, authorities should call it for what it is, an act of terrorism, how else can you explain this, he intensionally crashed his vehicle into a few people and into a building for a religious justification, etc.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on April 4, 2013 at 2:35 pm

I’m not at all surprised we let them here into this country.

I’m shocked however our prosecutors and courts don’t see fit to protect us from Islamic terrorists. In truth, I suppose we shouldn’t be because we deny the problem exists.

As long we do, Islamic terrorists on American soil are going to get away with it – and much, much worse. More is to come.

Only in America.

NormanF on April 4, 2013 at 2:41 pm

@John Taylor,

Sorry, we sometimes forget it’s racist to point out that when somebody called Haamid Ade Zaid drives his car into a Wallmart during easter with the only motive apparently being to physically harm people it might not be because he’s a black victim of America’s lax gun control laws.
Strangely though he wasn’t carrying a gun was he?

Sorry, we missed this chance to beat up on America, we’ll try to do better next time.

Frankz on April 4, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    I’m surprised he didn’t kill any one.

    He either was addled, clueless, stupid or just plain incompetent.

    It was a miracle.

    Next time, someone is going to get killed. Count on it.

    NormanF on April 4, 2013 at 4:05 pm

Apparently he used metal piping to bludgeon people as far as I can gather.

Any relation to Charles Taylor?

Frankz on April 4, 2013 at 3:16 pm

Muslims can beat people to death for no apparent reason.

In all of the stories that preceded their rampage, they were nice guys with no record just minding their own business.

Hey, so were Mohammed Atta and Xristos Katsiroubas – who had “clean” records before they committed Islamic mass murder.

Just because a Muslim wasn’t ever a terrorist doesn’t mean he won’t be a terrorist in the future.

The only way we can prevent these kinds of incidents is to send ’em back and keep ’em out but America lacks the guts to do it.

Its not our national security or the safety of American citizens we’re debating today – and we should be closing the loopholes, strengthening immigration controls and securing our borders in response. No – we want to make it easier for would be future jihadists to obtain a path to American citizenship. Hey, its all about priorities.

Only in America.

NormanF on April 4, 2013 at 3:54 pm

I personally grew up with him and have known him for 20+ years I don’t agree with what happened but this is not like him he has always been a good guy and also friend you guy blame it on what he has changed his name to why not try to help him instead of throw him away ignorant people like you are what is wrong with america

Tlewis on April 4, 2013 at 5:32 pm

    ‘Tlewis’, if you have known him for 20+ years then why don’t you tell us IF he changed his name and IF he did WHY? IF he didn’t you don’t have to say a word. We already know. Plus, going by your crappy diction and sentence structure, you’re obviously illiterate or ESL and from another country (Moooooooooslim!)

    I reckon you know “John Taylor” from the planet “Duran Duran” (above in the thread).

    How can it be NOT like him if he has done it TWICE? Once, *MAYBE* you can say it was an incident but TWICE…that’s a pattern, you dope!

    YOU are what is wrong with America. What sh**hole are you from? Tell us the truth now, dopey liar!!

    Skunky on April 4, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    After watching MSNBC’s “Lockup” series on American prisons on the weekends, I agree they’re hell.

    But some people are far too dangerous to be let loose in our society. Some people can’t control themselves around others and we have a right to be safe from them.

    Once your friend started hurting people, he needs to be locked up for his own good. Its only a matter of time before he takes someone’s life.

    Its time for our justice system to do its job.

    NormanF on April 5, 2013 at 2:14 am

Apparently you’ve known him for 20 years and you haven’t been able to do a damn thing for him have you?

Suddenly the whole country is supposed to be responsible because they think it had something to do with the conversion to Islam I think you’re implying by saying he changed his name.

If you were able to confront things honestly maybe you would have been some good to him.

Instead all you’re good for is covering his ass and that’s no good to the people he almost killed or him at all now is it?

Frankz on April 4, 2013 at 7:15 pm

Tiewas is what’s wrong with this country today. Blatantly ignoring this scum bag walking down his road to eventual hateful acts committed against innocent people. So many of those guys have the same touch of hair on the chin. To better tickle their boy friends around evening time.

samurai on April 4, 2013 at 9:12 pm

I am from America you dumb ass just because you come from a family of slave owner you racist piece of sh*t skunky

Tlewis on April 4, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    LOL, how am I raaaaaaacist, illiterate Tlewis?

    And get to steppin’ in answering my questions you dopey fraud. I see you didn’t even try to.

    If you are a Yank, you are a great example of our decline.

    Skunky on April 4, 2013 at 10:59 pm

You just have an issue with Muslims or did you just get picked on as a kid. He’s a grow man he changes his name because he has that right to. Seem you are unhappy with your life let me guess a black man took your job so you’re stuck working a minimum wage 9 to 5 or is it that your wife left you and took your kids so you have nothing better to do but berate other religions

Tlewis on April 4, 2013 at 11:09 pm

    Islam sanctions mass murder and jihad as a religious precept.

    It also seeks to impose its beliefs and values upon the entire society, whether or not people agree with it.

    Other religions leave those who don’t follow them them alone. Islam wants to either convert the world or kill all the infidels.

    Since that’s their view of things, we can’t ignore what Muslims do since they won’t leave us alone and mind their own business.

    Put more succinctly, their 7th Century philosophy and outright barbarism poses an intolerable threat to our freedoms and to our very way of life. You may not want to face it but the truth is Islam is very much the problem child of our time.

    NormanF on April 5, 2013 at 2:33 am

    Illiterate Tlewis, you bet yo’ arse I have a problem with Moooooslims. That religion is a human scourge, dummy.

    Why don’t you answer my questions on your Mooooooslim buddy, dumb-dumb? You have known him for 20 years so TELL US or STFU.

    Or start studying the archives here ‘cuz you need the education, brain-box!

    Skunky on April 5, 2013 at 10:34 am

Debbie, yesterday after reading the charges this guy is facing and knowing this is not his 1st time incident had me thinking on how those 911 terrorists developed their targets. It occurred to me that this is another trial run maybe? What I couldn’t figure is destroying that classic car is what stumped me. That puzzled me and when I saw your article, well…

Santa Clara County along with most other Bay Area Counties are in the another zone. Leftists… Too many bleeding hearts have tugged at those lifelong politicians and those politicians have developed a very soft heart of not to punish people …Too bad California is becoming more expensive to live, and a much runaway state of liberalism of laws and regulations.

dee17556 on April 5, 2013 at 10:12 am

Hey Debbie…..when I first heard this guys name I told my wife, “I think this was “Jihad”…It was clear from all our video that it was intentional. When the first reporter told me the Walmart guy was the same guy….I fealt sure of it. I’m really concerned they will let him out again. I’ve been toying with getting a restraining order and installing barricades……. expensive and will do absolutely no good if he wants to come back and try again to kill my employees and customers. I was born in California 64 years ago. It was a better time. We knew real “FREEDOM”. I’m sorry to say it but we’re leaving a screwed up mess for the younger folks. Keep up your good work…Hope it leads to some good.

Chuck on April 14, 2013 at 10:52 pm

Checked into this man’s background. He’s African American, Christian and habitual drug abuser. He was having a drug endured psychotic episode.

EMSaenz on May 16, 2014 at 2:12 am

Lol this lady Debbie is an idiot! Aj is not jihad! Do your homework makes. Reporter idiot! You look ignorant writing an article like this. You don’t have anything else to do but lie tithe public? You just discredit your self doin this lame sh*t! Get a life!
