A Delaware state trooper was fatally gunned down outside of a convenience store by devout Muslims reciting quotes from the Qur’an, later prompting a standoff with one of two suspects, who fired at cops, police said. Here again is another important news story getting no coverage from the enemedia.
A reporter for the DelawareOnline tweeted, “Scene indicates the trooper was shot multiple times. There’s a lot of blood on ground, multiple casing markers. Still huge police presence.”
Police said that one of the suspects was taken into custody at the scene and the other one fled into a residence in the Brick Mill Farm section in Middletown and is firing at police, said McQueen.
“The suspect has refused to surrender and is firing rounds at officers,” McQueen said, adding “this is a sad day for our state.”
Meanwhile, area schools were placed on lockdown.
The Appoquinimink School District posted on Facebook, “We have been notified by police that an armed individual is in the Dove Run Shopping Center. The police have set up a perimeter. As a precaution, ALL area schools have gone on lockdown.” (NYP)
Any reports of this cold-blooded killing have all references to Islam, Quran, and motive scrubbed from the reportage.
“EXCLUSIVE: State Rep. claims DSP trooper’s killer was a ‘budding jihadist’ Muslim,” by Rob Petree, Delaware 105.9, May 8, 2017:
Was Burgon Sealy Jr., the man who shot and killed Delaware State Police trooper Cpl. Stephen Ballard, radicalized? Delaware State Representative Steve Smyk claimed that Sealy was a practicing Muslim, and that he did in fact yell verses from the Quran during the standoff.“What I can tell you is that there are people that will immediately assume that the war cry of, the Muslim war cry of ‘Allahu Akbar’ may have been said, and I don’t know that to be true. I do know that he was a ‘budding jihadist’ and that being said, how long was he a practicing Muslim, I’m not aware of,” said Rep. Smyk. “We do know that, at the scene, during this standoff he was heard siting quotes from the Quran, what those quotes were I don’t know.”
