Boston Officer, FBI Agent Kill Knife-Wielding Terror Suspect

June 02, 2015  | 

A Boston police officer has shot and killed a man who had been under surveillance by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force, ABC News has learned.

The FBI had been tracking the man for several weeks, and authorities are looking into whether he may have been radicalized by ISIS propaganda online, law enforcement sources told ABC News.

An officer and an FBI agent approached the suspect at about 7 a.m. today in the parking lot of a CVS in Roslindale, Massachusetts, police said. The suspect then pulled a "military-style knife," prompting numerous commands from the officer and FBI agent to drop the weapon. But when the suspect refused, both the officer and FBI agent opened fire, officials said.

Another Jihadist goes to paradise, where he is awaited by 72 permanent virgins and 24 "young boys who never grow old." Too bad he had to do it via "suicide by cop."

Good job to the officers and agents in this incident. Hopefully it leads to more bigger and more dangerous subjects. Im just hoping that none of the libs start coming forward and riot and protest this shooting. Bunch of maggots ought to find a job, and cut that crap out!
