Shooting at U.S. Army Navy Career Center Little Rock

One Army Recruiter Dead, 2nd Critical in Drive-By Shooting in Little Rock, AR.



Little Rock - One person is dead, another seriously injured, and a third is in custody following a double shooting in west Little Rock Monday morning.

Authorities say the incident occurred around 10:00 a.m. at a U.S. Army Navy Career Center inside the Ashley Square Shopping Center at 9112 North Rodney Parham Road. According to Lt. Terry Hastings with the Little Rock Police Department, two enlisted soldiers standing outside the office were hit when the unidentified suspect drove up and began shooting.

Both of the wounded were taken to a nearby hospital, where one of the victims died a short time later, according to police.

The suspect led police on a brief pursuit towards downtown Little Rock, before being taken into custody in the area of the Interstate 30/630 interchange.

According to the Little Rock Fire Department, a bomb squad was called to the scene to investigate a suspicious package inside the suspect's vehicle.

According to Army Lt. Col. Thomas F. Artis, the two victims were not recruiters, but part of a recruiting program called "Hometown Recruiting Assistance." Artis says recruiters use soldiers to tell their stories and talk to potential recruits while they are visiting or based back in their home region.

The two victims were just out of basic training, he said, and had not been deployed.(CNN said this )

But the other souce KATV said this...."Artis says both soldiers had been previously deployed to either Iraq (web | news) or Afghanistan, but couldn’t offer any further details.”

Wild Thing's comment........

Think this will be comparable to the killing of the serial baby killer George Tiller? /NOT

I don’t think I’ll wait for Obama to make a statement about this like he did about Tiller the baby killer’s death.

Military recruiters are probably not high on his list.

I have always felt Recruiters should be allowed to be armed. It surprised me when I found out they weren't.

Just because they didn't believe in this or agree with what that person was doing, it did not give either of these men the right to do what they did either. It makes them worse in my eyes. I can't believe people are really that dumb out there.

These Soldiers are safer in Iraq or Afghanistan at least they can identify the enemy. Hopefully they catch the gutless bastard(s) quickly.

should be allowed to be armed. It surprised me when I found out they weren't - WT

Military personal on US bases are not allowed to cary weapons, I have heard. Strange.

Unconscionable and very cowardly, to demonize anyone or any organization especially with media support is inexcusable. This is a prime example of that 'rule of law" smokescreen they keep blowing up everyone's ass.
Extremists exist on both sides of the spectrum. But the Panthers are a group that perform acts like this, not saying that they are guilty, but if it's from the right, punishment is sure and swift, the rest on the left advance into the offices of higher learning, 'public' office even our Congress. Welcomed by the "inclusive party" that so many RINO's belong to.

That's a fact Odin, Military Police are armed. The entire military organization relies on discipline - personal and professional, it requires written orders to arm the soldiers full time, their weapons are under lock and key at all times with out formal orders for training or battle.
They have been, are/were, even sent to quell civil unrest - unarmed, including yours truly.

People that do this respect no uniform, no laws or rules, they are the rogues. The United States has invested many lives to invest Iraqi police with self protection for themselves and their citizens it doesn't halt the halfwit that kills the entire police force, is this perpetrator or perpetrators any different than those death cult butchers?

Any bets the Lynne Stewarts and the ACLU slime are slavering to defend who ever did this. After all, it was just their expression of free speech.

Remember this, it's here!!!

F*cking Coward!!! This is just friggin' great; now the anti-gun nuts are going to have another damn chip in their propaganda game: The Soldiers. Tewnty Bucks says that they'll use this to push their so-called "assault weapons ban" and other anti-Second Amendment Bullsh*t.

To add insult to injury, this yellow SOB will be found not guilty at trial thanks to his marxist ACLU lawyer working the case pro-bono and on the BS basis it's us the evil American Military who drove him to it, and he'll be lauded as a hero. It will be America's fault once again.

OK, now we know. The bastard is a recent convert to islam. Probably a jailhouse follower of Farrakhan. So far no words of sympathy from The muslim in the WH like for the abortion doctor.

This will be played down. Obviously this poor oppressed Black man was driven to his rage by the White establishment. He tried to find his peace in the religion of peace, but his mind(very small)just snapped.

Keep buying ammo!

Yet more victims of the "Gun-Free Zone" mentality.

Abdul Hakim Mujahid Muhammad, 24, of Little Rock. Muhammad also goes by the name Carlos Bledsoe.

Just another misunderstood victim of slavery and oppression, will the liberals address this latest real Mohammedan terrorist act in Little Rock? Silence so far from Nappy or Holdie and their muzzie leader.

Odin, thanks, yes I wish they could be.

radical lawyers about defending this

Posted by: Wild Thing at June 2, 2009 01:53 AM

Rick, that's right.
They lie in wait for anything to use
and they could care less really about
the victims, they are just tools for
them in their agenda.

I am so angry about this!!!!

And I read that he was under investigation by the FBI for a recent trip he took to Yemen. No doubt he was learning about what a peaceful cult islam is.

The best thing for the world would be the complete destruction of islam. Look anywhere on earth where there are problems and you will find islam behind them.

The story of the Little Rock terrorist attack is being under-reported by the MSM. That said the most disturbing thing is the failure of Obama and DOJ to mention this, as they quickly did in the case of Dr Tiller. Not only did they quickly condemn the Tiller act, but acted without hestitation to send federal marshals to protect abortion clinics throughout the U.S. Where, I ask, is the protection for unarmed U.S. military recruiters operating in the major cities. Do we have to have another such attack before the President acts. His response and is totally unacceptable and he will have to answer for any successful attack on recruiter in the future. This command-in-chief is MIA on this, but finding time to consort with his Islamic friends in Saudi Arabia and Egypt while the family of Pvt. William A. Long is preparing to pay their last respects to their son. A son who was killed on American soil by Islamic terrorist while the so-called commander-in-chief remains silent. He is showing total disrepect for the military and must be held accountable.

I feel sure that many on the left are eagerly waiting to blame the Little Rock attack on GITMO or maybe even past racism directed toward the shooter.
