Hollywood Jihad: Shootout, Gunman Calmly Targeted Drivers and People While Shouting Allahu Akbar!
What is most disturbing about this story, apart from the obvious horror, is that not one news account reported what one witness said the shooter was screaming: "allahu akbar." Not one news account. The media is the enemy.
Check out the video here. One of the witnesses states that the shooter was repeatedly shouting "allahu akbar" at minute 2:42. This video is on the bottom right of the LA Times new story, but they don't mention it in their coverage -- neither does Reuters, CBS news, The Hollywood Reporter, KFAI, or any of the other news reports. I expect that this video will be removed or edited.

Video shows the gunman calmly pointing his handgun and opening fire on passing cars near Vine Street and Sunset Boulevard near the ArcLight Cinema.
A man driving a Mercedes was shot in the jaw and taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was in critical condition. He is expected to survive.
Video: Witness captures dramatic footage of shooting
The scene resembled a fast-moving Hollywood production, said some witnesses, leaving them with the sensation that they'd witnessed something surreal.
"When I heard it, I didn't react to it being real," said Greg Watkins, a student at the nearby Los Angeles Recording School who was walking on the street and had just taken off his headphones to take a call from his girlfriend when the shooting began.
"This is Hollywood, and they do film stuff all the time," he said, standing near the ArcLight Cinemas. "I honestly thought they were filming something." Serge Durand, who said he was visiting from Atlanta, filmed the attacks from a friend's apartment above the intersection. In the video, a gray car swerves to avoid the shooter as he points what appears to be a weapon at the car. "Is this the end?" Durand said he heard the shooter exclaim.
Emmanuel Fierro, 21, staying with a friend in another apartment above the intersection and also a student at the recording school, said, "I walk through these streets every day to go to school."
"I couldn't believe what was happening in the streets," he said, "but I guess this is Hollywood."
The attacks began about 10 a.m. south of Sunset, police said.
A young man in a white tank top was spotted walking up the street yelling and firing a handgun in the air. He then turned to firing at passing motorists who seemed to be picked at random, including the man in the Mercedes, police sources said.
The gunman was eventually shot by a detective and an off-duty officer who may have been working on a movie set nearby.
Police have so far found no motive in the shooting.
In addition to a gun, the attacker also displayed a knife during the incident. LAPD detectives have gone to the mans home to make sure there was not a domestic incident or some other act of violence that precipitated the shooting.
“Police have so far found no motive in the shooting. “
“the shooter was screaming: “allahu akbar.””
If they found a Koran, then they found what precipitated the shooting.
Video here gives eyewitness accounts......was yelling Allah Akbar.
Eyewitness accounts aren’t always reliable. And even if the perp was screaming what the witnesses said, that doesn’t necessarily mean the perp was an Islamist. I’m keeping my powder dry on those aspects, but the cops withholding the ID is very interesting.
Must be a muzzie. Other people aren’t granted that privilage under these circumstance.
Well, I’m more concerned about the Islamist angle after reading the fuzz are withholding the perp’s ID.
fuzz are withholding the perps ID.
Must be a muzzie then. Not just anybody has that kind of privilage.
“At the family’s request, police delayed releasing his identity until more family members were notified, said LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman. Police said the man was a caucasian, 26-year-old, Los Angeles resident.”
The Muzzy family has to have time to notify other Muzzy family members in this country as well as in the Middle East and Europe and their respective mosques so they can all celebrate his act of jihad.
For some reason I thought the criminal justice system normally publishes the name of the perp immediately and withholds the name(s) of the victim(s).
