Kansas City Highway Shooter Arrested (Updated)Topics: Political News and commentaries
They finally got this idiot before he killed someone. Twenty cars have been shot at in the past month, 3 people have been injured. The man, Mohammed (Pedro) Whitaker was charged with 18 felony counts related to 9 incidents. Charges included shooting into a motor vehicle and hitting a victim. More charges may be added. He lives in the area of Grandview, Missouri.
Local 10 reported:
For more than a month, motorists around Kansas City, Missouri, have worried about something besides traffic jams and potholes.This idiot is damn lucky he isn't under arrest for murder ... his actions could have easily resulted in someone's death.
Someone had fired a gun at as many as 20 motorists on major roads and highways. Three people were shot, none with life-threatening injuries.
A news conference expecting to reveal details of the case was scheduled Friday, a day after Police Chief Darryl Forte announced a man was taken into custody in connection with the shootings. The suspect's name won't be released until charges have been filed.
Thursday's arrest took place in Grandview, Missouri, south of Kansas City. Kevin Cooksey, who lives across an alley from the suspect, said he saw police take him into custody.
"He couldn't go nowhere because he was surrounded. Completely surrounded," Cooksey told affiliate KSHB-TV. "They were on him. As soon as it happened, they were on him."
The shootings began March 8, and at least 12 of them are connected, police said. Some motorists weren't even aware shots had been fired at their vehicles.
Take home questions: (1) Are we going to learn that Mohammed (Pedro) Whitaker is just crazy or that the shootings have something to do with jihad as in the case of the D.C. snipers? (2) If it turns out that the shootings have something to do with Islam, does anyone actually believe that the media will report it?
