On January 31 in Denver, Joshua Cummings walked up to Scott Von Lanken, a former pastor who was working as an RTD (Regional Transportation District ) security officer, and shot him to death for no immediately apparent reason. Investigators initially suspected that Von Lanken was killed because his dark blue uniform made him look like Denver police. The motive soon came to light — Islam:
Two sources said investigators found jihadist materials in Cummings’ backpack and those materials are being investigated.
Cummings reportedly spoke “in an Arabic language” when taken into custody, and was “wearing an outfit of the sort associated with radical Islamists.” He was on a federal terror watch list. He used social media to praise Islam, criticize Christianity, and denounce police brutality.
Wherever there are sociopathic losers with a grudge against decent people, Islam will find recruits. Killings like this don’t normally make the national news, which has been crowded with breathless stories of put-upon Muslims being inconvenienced at the airport due to a temporary travel ban on terror-exporting countries, so people do not realize just how unsafe we have become.
