Zale Thompson has been named as the ax-wielding maniac who tried to kill four NYPD officers in Queens on October 23. Thompson managed to injure two of the cops before Thompson was shot dead on a Queens’ street after he attacked a group of cops with an 18 inch ax. Officer Kenneth Healey received a wound to the head in the incident. Another cop, Joseph Meeker, was injured. Both are rookies in the NYPD. Thompson attacked them without saying a word, according to witnesses.
The first paragraph in CNN's report stresses that there is no Islamic link. Of course the source is an unnamed Sr. LEO.
Based on everything authorities have seen so far, there is no indication that Zale Thompson, the man accused of wounding two New York police officers with a hatchet, was tied to any radical Islamist groups, a senior law enforcement official told CNN Friday.
Is this the start of more?
