Terror Suspect Usaama Rahim, Shot Dead By FBI & Boston Police After Refusing to Drop Military-Style Knife (Update: Brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, Claims Brother Shot in Back)(Update: Second Suspect David Wright [Dawud Sharif Abdul Khaliq] Arrested)
WILL THE LEFT AND LIBERAL MSM CALL THIS AN UNJUSTIFIED TERRORIST SHOOTING, WHAT’S NEXT, DO TERRORIST LIVES MATTER?
An armed individual, being tracked by Boston police and the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot dead yesterday in Roslindale, MA when he refused to drop his weapon, a military-style knife, and came at police in an aggressive manner. The man shot was the 26 year old brother of Boston Imam Ibrahim Rahim, who claims he was shot 3 times in the back. For the record, The Boston Globe reports that Usaama was shot twice, once in the chest and once in the stomach. Also police sources state, Usaama had been radicalized by ISIS propaganda and may have been preparing an attack on law enforcement.
From the Jawa Report, the family of Usaama is crying racism and Islamophobia and claiming Usaama was ‘shot in the back’. Usaama was a grievance hustler’s twofer. Imagine that, a completely different story from a criminal and in this case an individual being tracked by counter-terrorism. Wow, will this give rise to #Terrorist Lives Matter?
An armed man in his 20s being surveilled by the FBI counterterrorism unit was shot and killed by an FBI agent and a Boston police officer in Roslindale this morning, according to Boston Police Commissioner William Evans.
“He was on foot, under surveillance,” Evans said. “The officers have been surveilling him and again they wanted to speak to him … and he turned and our officers gave several commands for him to drop the weapon and unfortunately he came at the officers and they did what they were trained to do and that’s never an easy decision for any officer to make.”
One FBI agent and one BPD officer fired, FBI Special Agent in Charge Vincent B. Lisi said.
Evans said the suspect was wielding a large military-style black knife that he could have “done a lot of damage” with.
“I think our officers tried their best with the FBI to try to convince him to put down the knife but he didn’t leave us a choice,” Evans said. “It’s an active investigation with the joint terrorism task force … It’s very fluid it’s ongoing, but we have one male shot and as you can see it is a very active scene.”
The Boston Globe – Man shot in Roslindale was under 24-hour surveillance.
Usaama Rahim, 26, had made threats against law enforcement, according to two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case. Officials declined to explain what had led to the ongoing antiterrorism task force investigation or detail its scope, although they said it had been going on for a while.
“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans said. “He was someone we were watching for quite a time. The level of alarm brought us to question him today. I don’t think anybody expected the reaction we got out of him.”
Rahim allegedly wielded the knife after being approached on Washington Street in Roslindale by task force members. Evans said the officers did not have their guns drawn when they approached.
A man was arrested in Everett in relation to a Joint Terrorism Task Force investigation.
In Everett, police blocked off Linden Street, unsettling neighbors, and officers entered a home there late Tuesday afternoon.
Just after midnight, authorities confirmed that they arrested David Wright, who will face federal charges in court on Wednesday. Officials said the investigation was potentially an “ISIS inspired plot to harm law enforcement officials.”
A Massachusetts man is in custody in connection with Tuesday’s shooting of a man police say was radicalized by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.
Police led the man, David Wright, out of an Everett home late Tuesday, linking his arrest to the terror investigation of Usaama Rahim.
Just 14 miles away, investigators say, Rahim had pulled out a knife and waved it at officers in Boston. Moments later, police fired, shooting and killing him. He was under 24-hour surveillance at the time he was killed.
“We believed he was a threat,” Boston Police Commissioner William Evans said.
Evans says the shooting was caught on nearby surveillance cameras, and the video shows police guns weren’t drawn at first.
Rahim, 26, and Wright, 25, were apparently tight — Rahim called him his nephew on Facebook, where he thanked him for attending his wedding. Both of them used aliases on Facebook. Rahim went by “Abu Sufyaan” and referred to Wright as “Dawud Sharif Abdul-Khaliq.”
And they spoke in coded language, too, the FBI said, but Rahim’s meaning in recorded phone conversations with Wright seemed obvious to agent Joseph Galietta, who listened in.
Rahim would come out swinging with a knife soon to kill police officers — probably Tuesday, Wednesday at the latest, Galietta said in an affidavit.
“I’m just going to, ah, go after them, those boys in blue. Cause, ah, it’s the easiest target,” Rahim told Wright, according to the affidavit.

22 year old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither is missing after her apparent abduction that was caught on surveillance video. Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday, November 2, 2014 in the 100 block of West Coulter Street in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Freeland-Gaither is described as a black female, five feet, three inches tall, 125 pounds with brown eyes. Police say she has braided hair and has a tattoo on her lower back, and was last seen wearing a light blue jean jacket, a gray and white sweater, carrying a black backpack.
Police in Philadelphia have released dramatic video of a suspect apparently abducting a woman in the city’s Germantown section Sunday night.
Twenty-two-year-old Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was last seen around 9:40 p.m. Sunday in the 100 block of West Coulter Street, reports CBS Philly. A witness said the woman was yelling for help as a man forced her into a dark-colored sedan.
Surveillance video released Monday by Philadelphia police shows a man driving down a street, parking his car and walking a short distance out of the camera’s view, back towards the direction from which he came. He’s then seen apparently chasing a woman across the street before grabbing her and forcing her down the block and into the car.
Freeland-Gaither tries to break free as the man works to open the rear driver’s side door on a 2000 model dark gray metallic Ford Taurus with missing inspection stickers. They both tumble onto the sidewalk, but the woman is unable to get away.
She’s thrown into the back of the car and the vehicle rocks back-and-forth for about 30 seconds before it pulls away. During that time, police said the woman broke out the both rear windows of the car trying to escape.
Another car can be seen driving up the street as the struggle takes place, but eventually backs out of the street.
A witness told NBC10 he walked past the woman shortly before hearing her scream. He then ran back to find her being forced into the sedan.
There is now a $15,000 reward offered in the search for Carlesha Freeland-Gaither.
The Fraternal Order of Police put an additional $5,000 Tuesday saying if an arrest is made today, they will pay up immediately.
Philadelphia Police have launched a full-scale investigation into the abduction on West Coulter Street in Germantown.
“Just let my daughter go. Whatever it takes, I don’t care. Just let her go,” father Carl Freeland said.
Authorities have found the woman abducted in Philadelphia alive in Maryland, and they have arrested a man in connection with the investigation, police and the FBI announced Wednesday evening.
FBI Philadelphia Special Agent in Charge Ed Hanko announced at 7 p.m. Wednesday that a tip to their Richmond office led investigators to identify an individual and his car, which they tracked to the 7200 block of Waterloo Road in Jessup.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives went to the location, which was a shopping center parking lot, and said agents immediately recognized the car as the one for which they’d been looking.
“It did have the right rear window kicked out of it, which was similar to the information that we received from the Philadelphia Police Department,” said ATF agent Timothy Jones.
“Tonight, the FBI and Philadelphia Police Department have great news that Carlesha Freeland has been rescued, her abductor has been arrested in Maryland,” Special Agent Hanko said.
The suspect is identified as 37-year-old Delvin Barnes.
Barnes is currently being held on a warrant based out of Charles City County, Virginia sheriff’s office for attempted capital murder, assault, malicious injury with acid, explosive, or fire.
Hanko says he will then be charged federally with crimes in Philadelphia
Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia Police. Tipsters in Philadelphia should call 911, and those outside of the city should call 215-686-TIPS.

Three Missing American Teenage Girls from Denver, CO Detained by FBI in Germany in Attempting to Join ISIS
It started out as a missing persons runaway report, with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, and then turned into something more bizarre and sinister …
Three America teens from Denver, Colorado who were reported missing have been found. According to FOX News, the three teens have been detained by the FBI in Germany attempting to travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Reported by VOA, the girls had vanished from their homes last week and traveled from Colorado to Chicago, and then Frankfurt. The girls have not been identified, but law enforcement officials said two are sisters, 15 and 17 years old, and one is 16 years old. The two sisters are from Somalia and the 16 year old is from Sudan.
The FBI says it is investigating the possibility that three American teenage girls were attempting to join the Islamic State in Syria when they were detained in Germany.
A law enforcement source told Fox News Tuesday that the girls are home in Colorado after they were tracked down in Frankfurt. The three girls are all under the age of 18 and are not expected to face charges. Two of the girls are of Somali descent and one is of Sudanese descent, according to the source.
ABC News reported that a law enforcement official said the girls were planning to travel to Syria to join militant groups. The official told ABC News the teenagers planned “to fulfill what they believe is some vision that has been put out on a slick media campaign.”
This is part of a worrisome trend of “disaffected youth” who are being radicalized, the official said, pointing to the wider phenomenon of foreign fighters converging on the conflict in the region.
There have been other cases of high school age kids trying to get to Syria that haven’t been made public, the official said.
The girls were persuaded to travel overseas and were in contact with someone in Germany, the official said, noting that someone close to them notified authorities.
They were turned around and sent back to the United States, the official said, noting that because they are minors it remains unclear whether they will be charged with anything or be “arrested.”
The FBI has spoken to the teens and interviewed their families, and the agency said at this point they are not facing any charges. WHAT!!! HOW ARE THEY NOT FACING ANY CHARGES!!! WHY, BECAUSE THEY ARE TEEN GIRLS?

She was last seen wearing a blue pajama set.
FBI and Marion County authorities won’t comment on why the vehicle belonging to a missing 15-year-old girl from Bucyrus was towed from the family’s home Friday afternoon.
When asked if Marion County authorities could comment, a spokesperson said, “Not at this point. I can’t.”
Speaking at a news conference, authorities did say they had believed that Rebecca “Becky” Kemper, 15, had been speaking with a man in Marion prior to her disappearance. They say he’s since been contacted and not identified as a suspect or person of interest.
If anyone has any information regarding the whereabouts of missing Rebecca Kemper , please contact the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office at 419-562-7906. Tips can remain anonymous

6 Year Old Jenise Paulette Wright Missing in Bremerton, WA … Last Seen 10 PM Saturday Night 8/2/14, Not Reported Missing Until 10 PM 8/3/14 … Missing Person Case with “Suspicious Circumstances”(Update: Found Deceased)
Six year old Jenise Paulette Wright has was reported missing Sunday night at 10 PM on August 3, 2014 in Bremerton, Washington; however, had not been seen since 10 PM on Saturday night. She had last been seen by members of the family when she went to bed at her home in the 1400 block of Northeast Steele Creek Drive in East Bremerton. Jenise is is a mixed race of Caucasian and Filipino, 3 feet tall, weighs 45 pounds and has black hair. The search for Jenise began at about 1:30 a.m. Monday with deputies and volunteers in and around the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park. Searchers who were looking for Jenise Paulette Wright, including two tracking canines and a cadaver dog, Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson stated that Child Protective Services took an 8-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl from the home Monday morning. Authorities are calling the little girl’s disappearance a missing person case with “suspicious circumstances.” Hmm, how do you not know where your six year old child is for 24 hours in this day and age?
Deputies and volunteers searched Monday for a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her Washington home and wasn’t reported missing for a day, while state child welfare workers removed two other children from the residence.
Child Protective Services took an 8-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl from the home Monday morning, Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson said.
Meanwhile, three dozen searchers were looking for Jenise Paulette Wright, including two tracking canines and a cadaver dog, he said.
Jenise was last seen Saturday night when she went to bed. Her family noticed her missing Sunday morning but didn’t become worried and call for help until that night because she had left the home on previous occasions and wandered around the neighborhood.
The missing girl’s parents have agreed to take a polygraph test.
The parents of a 6-year-old girl who disappeared from her Washington home and wasn’t reported missing for a day have agreed to take lie detector tests and allow a search of the home, a sheriff’s spokesman said Monday.
Both the home search and lie detector tests were in progress late Monday, Kitsap County Deputy Scott Wilson said. He said he doubted he would be able to discuss results.
The little girl’s disappearance was being called a missing person case with “suspicious circumstances,” Wilson said. Most missing children would have surfaced by now, he said.
Investigators, who now include the FBI and detectives from nearby police agencies and the Washington State Patrol, are “looking at the entire spectrum of possibilities: has the child sustained an accident? Has the child been abducted? Has the child come to harm?” Wilson said.
The FBI has resources “that we can only dream about — investigative tools, personnel that specialize in child abduction,” Wilson said. “We’re not calling it an abduction, but why not get those resources early on, examine all the possibilities.”

According to her family, Jenise has left their home on previous occasions and wandered around the neighborhood with siblings or friends, but checks in every few hours. When the family awakened Sunday morning and she wasn’t in the house, they assumed she was somewhere in the neighborhood.
“She is a social butterfly, she’s the youngest, she’s a spoiled little brat, and she’s the princess of the household and she gets her way most times than the others and the older ones can’t stand it,” said the girl’s father, Jim Wright.
Police said the family became concerned when they hadn’t heard from Jenise by 8:30 p.m. Jim Wright said when she didn’t show up for dinner, he organized a search and began going door to door in the mobile home park. When they couldn’t find her, they called 911 at 9:55 p.m. on Sunday, call records show.
As dog teams scoured the Washington state mobile home park where she lived, police searched cars and checked identification at the entrance to the community. But on Tuesday the entrance was closed completely to non-residents and the FBI stepped in to take over the search.
“This is heartwrenching. Our hearts just go out for this little girl, and were going to do everything we can to find her,” Kitsap County Steve Boyer told reporters Tuesday. “We’re going to hope for the very best.”
Investigators are going door to door, asking to search every trailer and out-building in the mobile home park, and were halfway done with the sweep by Tuesday afternoon. They said they would request search warrants for all who don’t comply voluntarily.
UPDATE II: James Wright, Father of Missing 6 Year Old Jenise Paulette Wright, Previously Charged with Molesting his Then 8 year-Old Stepdaughter.
Anyone with information about the girl’s location is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Office via the Kitsap County Central Communications at 360-308-5400.
