“According to him, police bend laws that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran,” said Police Commissioner Richard Ross.

CBS added:

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

Police sources identify the suspect as 30-year-old 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.”

The officer survived, despite being shot multiple times at point-blank range.  He even returned fire and struck the suspect at least three times.

We will.

At least one person said the shooting proves Trump is right.  There’s a couple questions that have to be asked, however.

Does Michael Moore stand with this guy as well?  And doesn’t this fly in the face of Hillary Clinton’s claim that Muslims don’t ever shoot people?
