Posted on 06/03/2009 9:49:55 PM PDT by smokingfrog
An assault rifle, with close to a hundred rounds of ammunition, and other evidence were found in the trunk of a parolee's car.
The startling discovery makes police believe they may have prevented a tragedy.
An alert parole agent and city police just may have headed off a violent confrontation before it ever happened when they acted on their instincts and checked out the car of a former inmate when he came to check in with his parole agent, reported Fox 29s Dave Schratwieser.
When 29-year-old Alexander Rivera reported to his parole agent on Monday at 13th Street and Clearfield Street, the agent said Rivera was acting suspiciously so she locked him in a holding cell and went to search his car. Inside, she found a civilian version of the AK-47 assault rifle.
He's got that kind of weapon in his vehicle. He's going to see a parole officer while he's got this kind of stuff in the car. I mean, you know, for what? asks Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey.
The semiautomatic assault rifle and the 100 round drum magazine were found in the trunk along with a hoodie, a black mask, work gloves and Internet material on how to purchase a bulletproof vest. Rivera was arrested on the spot.
While parole officers were searching Rivera's car, one of his friends arrived on the scene and asked to take possession of the car. When police checked his car, they found drugs and another weapon.

but but but the zerrhoids said we’d all “regain our standing in the world”...just make nice and all the bad stuff would magically melt away....like you know....your rent, gas and grocery bills.
No wonder the zerrhoid won’t say a thing about any soldier being killed (while lamenting the baby-killer), it’s all embarassing enough as it is.
I know liberals have as much shame as a chimp throwing crap in a zoo but...
Good thing I didn’t drive through Philli on the way to the range this past weekend. They would have loved my PTR91 with 6 loaded magazines, a couple hundred more rounds in boxes, my Saiga 12 with a loaded 20 round drum, and 200 rounds of shotgun shells. They would have had me labeled as a mass shooter caught before the act, and put me away for no good reason.
Of course this guy was on the way to see a parole agent, and doesn’t look a bit friendly. Being on parole, he probably wasn’t supposed to have the weapon with him in the first place.
What’s his Muslim name?
looks like a mooselimb!
I was going to ask if there were any other indications of a possible violent action by this individual - until I saw this photo. Never mind.
All, while the TOTUS is across the pond, preparing his speech blaming the USA for pretty much everything that has ever happened in the history of the planet....
Amish on parole. Shocking.
Onoz! What the hell does somebody think they’re doing with an evil gunnnnnnnn and ammo in their vehicle in the birthplace of the Republic?
Dumb & dumber....... LMAO.
I was going to say "So?", until I got to the parole part. Everyone who is not a criminal, in Philadelphia and elsewhere, should have an assault rifle and at least 200 rounds of ammo, at least half of that in loaded magazines. (I've got enough mags to have 300 rounds in loaded mags, but only 550 rounds, with 500 more on back order, and that's only for the 5.56)
Probably? They don't do parole from misdemeanor sentences. Anyone with a felony conviction can not only not have firearms *with* them, they can't have them at all.
Kind of an unusual beard and facial features for a guy named Rivera. The University of Oklahoma suicide bomber looked a bit like that, except for the facial features.
OTOH, the Arkansas Killer Muslim's original first name was Carlos.
We are a muslim now, so it’s okay.
That's kind of what I was thinkin' too.
Not the brightest bulb in the lamp and his friend doesn’t sound very smart either. As for the parole officer screaming about him bringing the weapon to his check in meeting, so what? He’s not allowed to own weapons regardless of where he is. Maybe another Jihadi waiting to get his licks in.
Can I have it?
Those things go for big bucks!
A Hispanic (who looks like a Moslem - notice the shape of the beard) on parole for robbery, with a Soviet SKS assault rifle, ammo, etc. in Philadelphia.
U.S. soldiers shot and killed/wounded by a black Muslim convert here in the U.S.
No stories here. Just another day in Obamaland.
Janet Napolitano: Phone call for you. CAIR calling to tell you that Moslems are peaceful folk. Wanted to make sure you got the message, or else.
Re AMish on parole.
That does it. No more Amish potato salad for me. That’ll show them foreigners.
Oh, he’s on parole. Until I saw that I was thinking, “What’s newsworthy about someone having an assault rifle and a 100-round drum magazine in their trunk? Doesn’t everyone? I know I do.”
These dumbass libs and their inability to tell the truth about these perps
are going to get thousands of people killed.
And all they’re worried about is “offending a minority group”.
He’s a muslim prison convert.
And the press is using his birth name to cover for the fact that he’s a Muslim on a jihad and was going to use those weapons in a terrorist act.
A more proper name for the rifle would be a copy of the well known communist AK-47 rifle. I’d love it if reporters actually started calling them commie rifles...
The muzzies can’t even make rifles. Does anyone know of any mass produced rifle from Saudi Arabia? Iran? Iraq? Yeah, didn’t think so...
Fortunately, everytime these whiny politicians from philly want to pass gun grabbing laws, they get shot down and die in committee. Why don’t we pass a Muslim confiscation law? All of these Muzzies running around trying to kill people, it seems we’d be far better off if we just confiscate the muzzies.
I know it's wrong, but I can't help it!
The news report just says 100 rounds of ammo, nothing about a drum. It could have been 3 or 4 regular magazines, or just a couple of boxes of ammo.
Worst “assault rifle” ever:
French, of course.
This does not look like a Hispanic guy. That is not a Latino nose, that is a Middle Eastern nose. And only Muslims seem to like that particular type of beard. You can see a better shot of him showing the full beard in the video.
I don’t think you’ll find anyone arguing that this guy is Amish, Dutch-Irish,
or anything but a middle eastern MUSLIM.
So this part was made up?
I have two for my AR-15 and one for my shotgun.
"From my cold, dead hands!"
Drums for an AR would be the utmost in coolness. I have a few ARs, but they seize up after about 80 rounds, so a 100-round drum would be a moot point.
Unlikely. First of all the SKS is not an assault rifle, it's a simple semiautomatic carbine. There is no full auto version, even the ones issued to various militaries and "insurgent" groups were all semiautomatic. Second, the Russian ones are pretty rare in the US. Chinese wer very common before importation was banned, now Yugoslavian versions are most often seen, but those from eastern european former Soviet block states are also seen. But not Soviet built ones. Of course the original design did come from the Soviet union, SKS stands for Samozaryadniy Karabin sistemi Simonova (Russian: Самозарядный карабин системы Симонова), 1945 (Self-loading Carbine, Simonov's system, 1945),
Yeah, he could have definitely done some damage with that drum mag.
