MERCED, CA – It has become the number one issue voters are concerned with in today’s national politics and it has become the number one priority for the US, state, and even local governments to keep you from knowing about; ISIS and its many lone wolves lying in wait. The latest attacks in San Bernadino show that anything can trigger people with extremist views and from any religion. So before we begin, please understand that this is not an attack on any one religion or a race of people.
On November 4, 2015, a young 18-year-old UC Merced student from Santa Clarita, CA awoke for school, got dressed and just minutes before the attack, sat on his bed in his dorm room. Dressed in a hooded sweater, hood over his face, with his backpack on his back, he just stared straight ahead in silence, according to warrant information obtained by Fox News.
The UC Merced terrorist’s roommate detailed an incident early on that gave him suspicion that FM was not a normal religious person but held extreme religious views.
“He was a loner and an extreme Muslim,” Ali Tarek Elshekh, FM’s roommate said to Merced Sheriff’s Department Detective Jose Silva in his statement. The roommate also noted that Mohammad was “way out there.” Elshekh also told sheriffs that a friend of his had asked FM what might happen if he touched his prayer mat, and Elshekh’s friend received a chilling response.
“I will kill you,” FM is alleged to have calmly vowed, which Elshekh’s, a Muslim himself, said was not a normal response for a Musilm.
Ali Tarek Elshekh, whose Facebook page notes that he attends classes at UC Merced and is also employed at the UC has not returned our request for an interview.
Merced County Sheriff’s detectives searched FM’s dorm, car and other possessions, and found a second copy of the manifesto in FM’s garbage can, along with several discarded petroleum jelly cans, duct tape wrappers, large zip ties, a package that had contained a knife and sharpener, a red prayer rug and a copy of the Koran.
Investigators think that FM, who carried out the terror attack on the UC Merced campus with an 8-inch hunting knife, planned to take a gun by overpowering a campus police officer and then he would take several more victims. Byron Price, a 31-year-old contractor was credited with slowing the UC terror attack we he opened the door and expected to see a fight. Instead, he startled the attacker who stabbed Price before running out the door where he stabbed another victim. UC Merced campus police spotted the attacker and shot the attacker in the leg on the campus bridge where he bled out and died before paramedics arrived.
Both copies of the UC Merced attacker’s manifestos have been kept away from the public’s view leaving many to speculate as to it’s full contents. One copy was found on his body, apparently during the autopsy, and the other was found in a trash can in the attacker’s dorm room. It is rumored to have listed the names of his targets, his vow “to cut someone’s head off” and at least five reminders to “praise Allah.”
The attacker had also detailed how he wanted to behead, stab and shoot his victims, according to Merced County Sheriff Vern Warnke.
“No. 27 was to ‘make sure people are tied down,’ No. 28 was “sit down and praise Allah,’” Sheriff Warnke said. “I remember seeing four or five times, scribbled on the side of the two-page manifesto, where he wrote something like ‘praise Allah.’”
“There was a gruesome statement he made about wanting to cut someone’s head off and kill two people with one bullet, and he planned to shoot the police,” Sheriff Warnke continued. “He did not have a firearm with him and didn’t seem to have a lot of experience with firearms because he thought he could kill two people with one bullet. He reminded himself in the list to raise the gun slowly. He scripted everything out in chronological order.”
The Merced County Sheriff, who was initially involved in the case until MCNTV News revealed that an ISIS flag was found on the UC attacker, promised that his office would release the manifesto to the press after the Sheriff department’s role in the investigation wrapped up. After the release of the ISIS flag information and the secret FBI meeting with local law enforcement 6 months prior to the attack, detailing the risk to the UC Merced by extremists in the Merced County area, the sheriff’s department was told by the FBI that they needed to withdraw from the investigation. The FBI then turned over the investigation from a transparent Sheriff who was elected on his promise to be transparent to the UC Merced Police Department and the FBI.
In similar fashion, when good officers who understand that they do have an obligation to be transparent, come forward with information they know is being kept from the public for malicious political reasons, the San Bernadino Police Chief received the same action from the FBI. Un named sources spoke with the media in San Bernadino, like in the UC Merced terror case, when they saw that the Federal government was not being straight with the American people. These brave men and women should be praised and not fall under scrutiny by the FBI. If the feds were straight with the people then we wouldn’t be so confused as to whose doing what and why they are doing it.
