A man fired from his job Thursday beheaded one of his coworkers and stabbed another before being shot by a company executive, police said Friday morning.
Colleen Hufford, 54, died Thursday after she was attacked by Alton Nolen, 30, who had just been fired from his job a Vaughan Foods Co., 216 NE 12, police said
Moore police have asked the FBI for assistance in investigating the beheading after employees of the business told police Nolen recently tried to convert coworkers to Islam.
Police Sgt. Jeremy Lewis said at a Friday morning news conference that Nolen had just been fired when he went into the front office and attacked Hufford. Nolen severed Hufford’s head using a knife police said he may have used at his job to cut lettuce and vegetables at the food processing plant.
After killing Hufford, Nolen attacked Traci Johnson, 43, with the same knife. Mark Vaughan, the chief operating officer at Vaughan Foods, then confronted and shot Nolen. Vaughan is a reserve Oklahoma County deputy, Lewis said.
“There’s no doubt Vaughan saved Traci Johnson’s life,” Lewis said.Tell that to all the gun-grabbers like Michael Bloomberg who want to disarm people in schools and workplaces with "gun free zones." How many more workers might have been beheaded by this Muslim if Vaughan had not been armed?
And then there's the typical reaction from the Muslim community, acting like they are the victims.
Saad Mohammad, a spokesman for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, said leaders of the society’s mosque in northwest Oklahoma City are on alert and taking security precautions to protect the Muslims who gather there from any violence that someone might try to attempt in retaliation for the Moore incident.
Mohammad said the anti-Muslim sentiments people may have could be heightened due to the beheadings and violence being perpetrated by the Islamic extremist group ISIS overseas.
"They have this ISIS thing on their minds and now this guy has brought it to America,” Mohammad said.
Nolen has tattooed on his abdomen “as-salaamu alaikum,” Arabic for “peace be with you,” according to Corrections Department records. He had “Jesus Christ” tattooed on his chest, “Judah” on his left arm and praying hands on his right arm.
Court records show that Nolen was convicted on drug-related charges and of assaulting an officer in 2011. In October 2010, Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Betsy Randolph pulled Nolen over and attempted to arrest him on outstanding warrants. While the trooper was attempting to handcuff Nolen a struggle ensued and the trooper was assaulted. Nolen fled into nearby woods, troopers said. A manhunt involving four law enforcement agencies and two helicopters lasted 12 hours before Nolen was apprehended.All we hear about, especially from the Islamist apologist Barack Hussein Obama (even George W. Bush) is how Islam is a religion of peace. Well, if that's true, why aren't they rooting out these extremists from their midst and telling Americans they will not tolerate violence in the name of Islam? Instead, you get cries of "Islamophobe" by the Hamas-linked CAIR grievance group and others, who have (since 9/11) gone around acting like they're the victims of terrorism.
There's this too?
So, since the FBI, under Obama and Holder, have just days ago removed "religion" from assessing terrorist threats, will this be classified as another case of "workplace violence" in another attempt by the Obama Regime to appease the Muslim community?
