WBZ: The FBI is investigating an overnight break-in at an U.S. Army Reserve armory in Worcester where weapons were apparently taken.
“Nothing at this point in time would tie this to any specific threat or anything else at this point,” Hank Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Boston division said at a press conference on Sunday.
The missing weapons were entered into a national database, and federal, state, and local law enforcement have been alerted, according to the agency. Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker urged the public to remain vigilant in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
“The more opportunity people have to rely on citizenry to serve as the eyes and ears, the more it makes a difference,” Baker said at Sunday’s press conference.
“These sorts of things people are going to be chasing and investigating no matter what, and I think it’s important for us to recognize that law enforcement will be collaborating, communicating, cooperating across all levels of government,” Baker said.
Six M4 rifles, ten M11 pistols, and some long guns were confirmed missing.
Look, this is obviously a big freaking deal. This isn’t a Honey Farms that got robbed – it’s a federal armory. It’s not some hood rats from Valley breaking in and doing a snatch and run. This is a coordinated robbery that is obviously part of a wider plan. We heard this on the scanner last night but waited to report before finding more facts. There was a reported fire there that has not yet been mentioned and I’m gonna assume that it had something to do with how they got in. I’m not exactly a weapon’s expert, but it would seem that blowing a hole into the roof to gain access would be the preferred mode of entrance for the burglars. We know that the alarm system did not go off because for some reason it’s acceptable that a federal armory’s alarm system is temporarily broken.
Obviously someone knew the alarm was broken. This was clearly the work of professionals who want these weapons for a reason. It happened the night after a series of terrorist attacks in Paris and three days before Donald Trump’s scheduled visit to Worcester.
Not a big deal though right? Because according to Mayor Petty and Chief Gemme, our streets are safe and we are all working together to move the city forward. All this stuff about violence and crime was just a lie put forward by Mike Gaffney so he could try to get elected mayor. Plus we’re building a hotel at City Square and a Popeye’s just opened on Park Ave. Safest city in America.
So yea, I don’t know who did this, but the timing is suspect. And I really could care if this isn’t politically correct to point out, but there’s a very controversial mosque right down the street from there on East Mountain Street. In 2009 a teacher at this school/mosque, named Tarek Mehanna, was arrested and accused by federal authorities of plotting to kill soldiers, mall shoppers, and politicians. Guess why he didn’t go through with his plot?
Authorities said Wednesday that Mr. Mehanna and the other alleged conspirators had contacted Mr. Maldonado about getting automatic weapons for their planned mall attacks, but he told them he could only get handguns.
He couldn’t get the weapons. Yea, sorry, I’m not jumping to any conclusions here, but until we know who did this, how can anyone really feel safe in the Woo? We have a mosque right down the street that somehow HIRED a guy to teach children, who just so happened to be on the FBI’s terror watch list. Sounds like they have a pretty tough screening process down there. Oh yea, and it’s less than a mile from the federal armory that was raided on the night the alarm system was broken.
I realize that there are plenty of peaceful Muslims out there, so I’m not trying to bad mouth an entire religion. But the bottom line is that the peaceful ones need to be a LOT louder, and stop supporting shit like this. Because as you will see, polls show that they are overwhelmingly supporting this terror, so long as it’s for a good reason. Here’s what one of the leaders, Tahir Ali, told Dianne Williamson in order to justify the murders of Cherlie Hebdo employees after they were assassinated for drawing a cartoon of Mohammad, the pedophile prophet (and yes, he banged a 9 year old girl, so that makes him a pedophile):
It’s Charlie Hebdo’s fault that several of their employees were killed by lunatic Islamic terrorists. They brought it on themselves because they drew a cartoon. There are people in Worcester who think like this. Very peaceful of him.
This guy is in a LEADERSHIP role. The fact that he didn’t immediately condemn those attacks and put 150% of the blame on the terrorists is alarming. So is the fact that the ACLU supported Tarek the terrorist.
If you are an American citizen then you must respect the right to free speech, regardless of whether or not that speech offends you. If you don’t respect that right then you’re a fascist and America has no room for you.
Stop telling me that attacks like the ones that happened in Paris are some wackjob, fundamentalist anomalies. It might only be a small percentage who are willing to go through with these attacks, but 30% of American Muslims think it’s OK for others to do so if they insult Mohammad. You are enabling this shit. I happen to believe in Jesus, but if you wanna make fun of him I really don’t give a shit, and I certainly don’t think you should die because of it.
So in conclusion, we don’t know if this break in had anything to do with the mosque down the street from it, but if leaders like Tahir Ali didn’t try to justify mass murder, and if the school didn’t hire known terrorists on the FBI watch list, then we wouldn’t have a reason to even mention them.
P.S. When we first heard this story was broken by the mainstream media we assumed the Telegram would be all over it, so we went to their Facebook page. This was their headline story:
This is why people read Turtleboy Sports and the Telegram more likely than not will not exist in 20 years. Clive can be our coffee bitch, but we’re not paying him $15 an hour.
