Hopefully he gets deported back to Pakistan after he gets out of jail.

If the government does not deport him all AMERICANS should stand together and ask WHY?
Justin case April 21, 2014 at 10:33 am
He will be bitter at our government no matter how much time he spends in prison. Afterwards he getsRead More a free trip home to Pakistan so he can connect with more terrorist and perfect his art as a real terrorist that can and will inflict harm to all Americans.

So if any copycats didn't know where any other Jewish centers were, they do now. The media ALWAYSRead More gives out way too much information. They do most of the research for any suspected terrorist who just happens to watch the news or read/listen to it. They are always giving addresses and telling the terrorist where the security cameras are located or if a particular building is low on security.

Kim, that is what I thought in earlier comments, elsewhere. Remember, members of his family wereRead More present. FBI has not said anything about them, or whether they were in the bullet riddled vehicle and just lucky not to have been hit. There is no statement that agents were in fear for their lives before they started firing, so why did they? Is FBI becoming more like Gestapo? Judge and jury? Why is media hushing things with only one side presented?
Dennis Gilpin April 15, 2014 at 04:21 pm
Chuck, We all know when there is an investigation nothing is discussed until all the information isRead More brought out. If the guy had his family in the vicinity why did he try to run and put everyone's life in jeopardy ? Like you said. too many unanswered questions.
Michelle Warnick April 20, 2014 at 01:42 pm
Thank god his daughter was not in the vehicle.. There was no need for them to fire 23 rounds withoutRead More being proposed a threat. This is just a plain and simple murder. Another man taken from this world way to soon. May you R.I.P and you will be missed dearly and loved by plenty of us. I hope justice is served with the 3 agents or at least a "proper" investigation. Instead of keeping everything hush hush to cover up the real truth in this matter!!

I left my convertible top down once. Went inside to pay for the gas and when I returned there was aRead More blob of bubble gum on the floor. I would have put my foot on it and made a real mess if I had not seen it. I had noticed a dad showing his son how to pump gas when I went in and I had noticed the kid chewing something. Morons!!!!!
Dennis Gilpin April 15, 2014 at 05:33 pm
Many women pull up to get gas and leave their purse on the front seat when they are paying for theRead More gas or getting cigarettes. Easy pickings for the thieves to reach in the car and take it. In spring, many people don't use their heat or air conditioning and just leave their windows down. Thieves are very aware of this.
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 07:49 am
Oh and wHen the revenue collection officer asks to search your. Vehicle , " I don't consent toRead More searches " is what you need to practice saying . If you have something obviously illegal in plain sight they can seach. Otherwise you have to give Them permission. Which they need or they wouldn't be ASKING. They'd be telling you they're gonna search . When you refuse them permission they will huff and puff and threaten to call in the drug dog. Blah blah.blah Bring it on steroid head . Then you say "am I under arrest or am I free to go?".
Pam Hamburg April 24, 2014 at 09:28 am
userbronco, you are 110% right. They have NO right to search your vehicle. Of course, they areRead More allowed to peer through the glass to see what they can see, but without a suspicion or proof, they have no right searching your glove compartment, trunk, etc. Yes, say 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Also, don't roll your window down all the way...you don't have to. About 4 or 5 inches suffices. Stand firm with that one. Be polite, but be firm. Be quiet except when asked a question, then use good judgment in answering. Keep saying 'am I being detained or am I free to go'? Holding court on the side of the road is not a good idea. If they persist in asking you if they can search your vehicle, politely tell them they will have to get a warrant. At all times, be courteous, but FIRM. Know your rights!
userbronco April 24, 2014 at 10:47 am
It's a touchy situation. You want to be as unrememberable as possible to the cop. So when orRead More if you go to court all he wilremember is what he reads in his notebook. That you can request to see by by the way You want to be unrememberable , don't say anything, unless they ask you a question , then use short answers , yes or no will usually suffice, be polite but don't say "sir" a thousand times. I don't say it at all. Make it look like your kissing up . I personally treat cops like I would treat a rattlesnake 96% of the people who are bitten by a rattlesnake are harassing the snake at the time Keep an eye out for them. And don't harass them. You WILL lose any contest with a cop. Even if it's a ego contest on the side of the road . Extra cops are only seconds away and they will beat you up or kill you in a flash if you tick em off Plenty if dash cam and cell phone video to prove it They are kinda like dogs, some are really smart, some are really dumb, but all of em are dangerous in groups or if they feel threatened or if they sense fear in you. Or if they think their getting an easy meal

Apparently, the man's family were left standing on the curb with one of the reporters, but wouldn'tRead More talk about it. 'Don't know if they were in the vehicle during the shooting, Moral: Don't try to dodge the Feds. They have the firepower, and will use it.
Dennis Gilpin April 13, 2014 at 01:42 pm
Kind of understandable why the F.B.I. was involved. The vehicle had out of state tags and evidentlyRead More they must have been tailing him. After trying to make a run for it the situation could have ended up far worse if it turned into a high speed chase.
Chuck Burton April 13, 2014 at 03:15 pm
The man's family was present, and with a TV reporter afterward, though they wouldn't comment. TheyRead More were not apparently detained by the FBI. Were they in the vehicle when the agents opened fire? Lucky they weren't hit, if so. Lucky no one else was hit in the area, which is often very busy. FBI needs to open up about why they fired under such conditions. Was the victim a clear and present danger to anyone else? If not, they should have held fire and pinned him with their vehicles to make an arrest.

He probably retired from the state department under an alias.

Noreen Dalisera April 3, 2014 at 05:15 pm
I am glad he is back home safe:)
Steven Spiegel April 3, 2014 at 10:02 pm
Thank god Thor was returned unharmed . To the people who said that they should be charged withRead More kidnapping don't feel bad if you keep up with the articles in patch they only gave the guy who molested the kids he was watching $25.000 bail these guys are only $5000 dollars less on there bail . I believe that the bail should have been much higher on both cases !!!! With $25.000 dollar bail you can get out with 1% which is $250 dollars and then pay them every week that way the prisoners can get out and steal and molest some more before going back to jail . I believe if a prisoner gets out and commits a crime when they are put out on such a low bail for such horrendous crimes the damn Commissioner who gives the jerks that low of a bail should get the same sentence and sit there ass right next to them in jail!!!!!!!!!!!
Marcus Aurelius April 7, 2014 at 07:18 am
There is not one reason this crime is not the same as kidnapping a human, 10 years, no parole, hardRead More labor is what is the proper sentence, but in Maryland they can go to jail get a bushel crabs a couple steaks, 12 beers, blow a joint or two, get laid and sleep in, that is the democrat prison system from Owemalley and Brown of course our next criminal Governor
Henry Chinery April 3, 2014 at 08:12 pm
Nothing wrong with calling the police to check out someone with a gun in a place they are notRead More expected to be. From a distance, a pellet gun looks just like a real one. That being said, anthrogirl, you should get your news from other places than the NYT who has a notorious liberal, anti-gun stance. Then you could read about the good that is done by citizens with guns. You could also read about things like the women who was stabbed to death in her apartment by her estranged husband while the police who brought her there to get her stuff sat outside. Had she had a gun, she might have been able to defend herself like the woman in Randallstown a few years ago. She came back from taking her trash out to find her estranged husband in her living room with a baseball bat. (So much for restraining orders!). She pulled out a gun and shot him dead before he could beat her with the bat. Guns do more good than harm. Sign up for a NRA "Women On Target" or "Refuse To Be a Victim" course and find out the truth. Molon Labe!
anthrogirl April 3, 2014 at 09:21 pm
Henry. I know that as a woman with a gun in my home, I'm twice as likely to die by gun shot woundsRead More than a woman who has no gun in her home. I know from the recent SCOTUS case on guns and domestic violence that over 40% of all women shot dead in the US are killed in domestic violence situations where guns in their homes are used against them. I know from that same case that over 10 US women per week are shot dead by partners or ex-partners. And that does not include those who are shot and live. 84% of women shot dead in the world last year were killed right here in the US. That makes the US a dangerous place for women. Also, having a gun increases the success rate of suicide significantly, making gun deaths for women with guns even more likely. Suicide attempts with a gun are 80-90% effective compared to less than 10% success rate of overdose. I doubt that women are shooting rapists and attempted murders to death at rates that offset domestic shootings and suicides. Guns are a liability for women and intelligent women know this. Scared, uneducated, and/or weak women look to guns because they desire power over their fears and over others.... much the same as men.
anthrogirl April 3, 2014 at 09:32 pm
Remember that FL woman who was sentenced to 20 years in jail for shooting a warning shot when herRead More husband was threatened to attack her? Well, she appealed and got a new trial. The less than happy prosecutor said that she would now look to put this self defending gun shooting woman away for 60 years. Lesson here - if you're a woman and you use your gun when you feel threatened, be prepared to spend a big chunk of time in jail.

People are ruthless on the road these days. I don't understand what could go wrong going down theRead More road so bad that it would make someone want to kill someone. I have been in accidents were people have rear ended me and it didn't get me mad enough to want to kill them. I hope that they find this guy and prosecute him to the fullest . I just lost my father to cancer on New years eve and he was 84 and it hurt so bad . I could not imagine having my son murdered it would kill me !!! I hope that the family will heal soon but it takes time and I am sure the healing process would be greatly accelerated if they found those who were responsible .
