The unindentified man who stands accused of shooting Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett has told authorities he shot the officer "in the name of Islam." He also pledged allegiance to ISIS.
When I heard about the attack, the first thing I thought about was Sean Collier, the MIT police officer ambushed in his cruiser by the Boston Marathon bombers.
Fortunately, Officer Hartnett has not met Collier's fate. Despite being shot in the arm multiple times, Officer Hartnett was able to return fire and hit the suspect before he was detained by other officers.
