Middle Easterners have on average low IQ scores. The average IQ score in Afghanistan is lower than that for American blacks, coming in at 83 or 84, a point or two below African-Americans. It’s no wonder that both groups have more than their fair share of criminals who get caught fairly easily.
Wanted bomber Ahmed Khan Rahami, born in Afghanistan, didn’t have the best thought out escape plan. When a good citizen saw a man sleeping in the doorway of a bar and reported him to police, it began the process that led to his being shot and taken into custody by police.
The mystery of who Rahami is will be solved as he recovers from his wounds and faces trial. However, the most important thing to know is that he’s an immigrant from Afghanistan. Apparently, moving into the West presents problems for them.
The desperate search for a 28-year-old man wanted in connection with a series of blasts that terrorized New York and New Jersey over the last three days ended Monday in a gun battle with police officers.
Ahmad Rahami was taken into custody after he was shot in the leg during the 10:30 a.m. confrontation in Linden, New Jersey, law enforcement sources said.
Rahami managed to shoot one police officer in the hand and another in the bullet proof vest before he was apprehended, they said.
The injuries sustained by Rahami, who was being treated at University Hospital in Newark, and the officers did not appear to be life-threatening, officials said.
Authorities are working to determine a connection between multiple explosions in Seaside, New Jersey, and the Chelsea section of Manhattan.
Unexploded devices were also discovered blocks from the Chelsea blast and near an Elizabeth, New Jersey, train station.
FBI agents in Brooklyn stopped “a vehicle of interest” in the investigation of the Manhattan explosion. Five occupants were detained for questioning.
Suspect traveled to Pakistan and Afghanistan within last 10 years.
Rahami’s father, Mohammad Rahami, told NBC News he had “no idea” of what his son was planning.
The suspect was discovered sleeping in the doorway of a local bar.
“When I was at the scene, initially, he was conscious and awake,” Capt. James Sarnicki of the Linden Police Department said of the suspect.
Rahami was captured after police got a call about a man sleeping in the doorway of a local bar, Sarnicki said.
When police arrived, one of the officers “tried to rouse him,” Sarnicki said. “The gentleman on the ground picked up his head, and the officer saw that he had a beard and resembled the wanted person from the poster … from the bombings.”
After the officer ordered Rahami to show his hands, the suspect “pulled out a handgun and fired one shot at the officer, striking him in the abdomen,” Sarnicki said. “Fortunately, the officer had a bullet-proof vest on.”
The Linden cops returned fire, hitting Rahami several times, Sarnicki said.
A local business owner told NBC News he heard what he thought at first were fireworks.
“But then we took a peek and there were cops firing and the guy went down in front of the building,” said the owner, who declined to give his name.
Unfortunately, Rahami gets to spend the rest of his life in prison, if convicted. It’s another hidden cost of admitting Muslims into the West.
