Subway Clawhammer Attack Is JIHAD

Last night I ran the story of the "psycho" who viciously attacked a stranger on a Philadelphia subway (while the attackers child stood by watching).

I asked "Jihad?"

The reason I believed this was an example of Jihad is because

1) the attacker brought his young son with him, and treated his son in a calm manner, even had his son carry the clawhammer in a bag and hand it to him when he was ready to attack,

2) videotape and witness testimony (including that of the man who was attacked) showed that there had been no interaction between the two prior to the attack

Read the story posted last night for details.)

These two details indicate that the man was teaching his son how to treat apes and pigs (Infidels).

My speculation turns out to have been correct. In fact, what we have here is yet another example of the media trying to hide the plain truth from us. It was very, very obvious this was Jihad. The man was yelling, "Allah Akbar" during the attack.

But, of course, the media didn't think it was important for us to know that.

From Jihad Watch:

In Philadelphia. Video here. The detail that he was chanting something in Arabic, as
well as "Allah," is in the video -- only "Allah" is in the story below.

Now, I'm sure that if this attacker is caught, he will be found to be
mentally ill, and will have no connection to terrorist groups, and only venomous
Islamophobes will be attempting to link his actions to the global jihad. And
maybe all of that will be true. However, the adherents of a religion that
contains traditions about genocide ushering in the end times, and that has a
developed doctrine, theology, and legal system that mandates warfare against and
the subjugation of unbelievers, cannot forever profess surprise and indignation
whenever anyone suggests that such material might incite people to commit acts
of violence.

In this video

The attacker is standing in front of the automatic entry/exit doors, grasping a safety bar. He is with a five year old boy who is also standing up and leaning against a metal panel which also serves as the side to passenger seating on the other side. On that seat sits a fairly large, balding or tightly cropped black male wearing a light polo shirt and sneakers.

The seated passenger is a good 30-50 lbs. bigger than the attacker.

During the first few seconds of this video, the attacker leans over to the child and appears to give the child instructions. The passenger seated closest to these two appears to be somewhat uncomfortable as he intentionally overhears the conversation between the child and soon-to-act attacker.

At the 19 sec mark, the seated passenger looks around to see if there is anyone who is aware or possibly looks for emergency cord/phone and wipes his forehead. Clearly he is uncomfortable.

At the 47 sec mark, as the attacker begins to move, the seated passenger adjusts himself in his seat and appears to brace himself with his right arm and hand grabbing the corner of the seat, while his left hand grabs the seat between his legs. The female passenger on the next seat appears to be unaware at this point.

The bearded attacker is now standing and guiding the five year old boy holding a plastic shopping bag (note: the plastic bag remains on the seat after the attack & the passengers have left the area). The seated passenger sees the little boy, loosens up and moves over to permit the child to sit down and he relaxes.

At this point the ABC editors focus in on the attacker removing the hammer from his backpack (thank God it wasn't a claw hammer) as he immediately begins hammering away at the twenty year old passenger who, totally oblivious while dozing and listening to his ipod, awoke to this horrific nightmare.

As the assault began, the attacker clearly grasped the safety pole tightly with his left hand to balance himself as he repeatedly swung the hammer with full body force behind his left arm. The bloody assault is said to have gone on for over five minutes as the assailant drags the twenty year old off the train and continues the assault on the platform.

One individual wearing a red cap is visible cowering away at the 1:00 mark. A young black male adult wearing a white t-shirt is also seen leaving to the left at 1:04.

During the tail end of the assault on the Broad Street line at Broad and Fairmont (northbound), several male witnesses are visible standing near the train's open door. One graying female's head (w/pony tail) is visible inside the train. One heavy set black male with a striped polo shirt. One average weight 20ish male wearing a red shirt with a contrasting dark collar, Another light skinned black man with mustache and sideburns wearing a green shirt and hat.

Facing these 'men' is another bearded black male wearing a baseball cap turned backwards cover in a dark shirt and carrying a drawstring bag (teal) like a backpack. There is another average weight white bearded male with mustache and dark hair and blue & white baseball cap wearing a light brown t-shirt. Another light skinned male with beard and mustache, brown hair covered with a dark baseball hat backwards and is wearing a green oversized t-shirt. This male appears to be over 30 and has substantial tatoos visible on his left fore arm. Another tall black male, of average weight wearing a white t-shirt and gold chain on his neck, black baseball cap on his head is carrying a bag onto the train .

Hmm, all those men with beards just happened to be standing around?!?

Maybe men in Philadelphia grow beards because of the cold.

However, it has been my experience that, no matter where I go in this country, I see very few beards.

I believe there may be even more to this story. This may have been a full-on conspiracy by multiple Muslim men to teach this young boy the ways of Jihad.

Good news:

Police Identify SEPTA Hammer Attack Suspect, Expect Arrest

This is clearly an attack by ismlamophobes, neo-cons, and the bushitlerites in order to rule by fear and destroy civil liberties.

Only they have to gain from this

Dag (who I've seen post @ IBA before) has a really good post identifying SJS cases in our recent history. Will this Philly event also be dismissed as caused by mental illness?

Oh boy, can I call it?

Associated Press - September 10, 2008 7:43 AM ET

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police have arrested a man suspected of brutally attacking a stranger on a subway car with a hammer.

Family members called police to identify the suspect after surveillance video showed the apparently unprovoked assault last week. The suspect was apprehended Tuesday night while in a mental institution.

The video shows the suspect getting on a train car with a young boy, pulling a hammer from a backpack and repeatedly hitting a man dozing in a nearby seat.

The victim, a 20-year-old lab tech, has been released from a hospital. He says he has no idea why he was targeted.

Many in the city are questioning why none of the other passengers on the train intervened to stop the attack.

Via The puzzling case - which police sources described as the random work of a mentally unstable man - almost drew to a close yesterday.The sources said that the suspect, whom they wouldn't identify - a bearded, husky, 5-foot-9 black man in his 30s - surrendered to a local mental institution in the morning.

No jihad to see here folks - at least that's what those wearing the uniform & providing your security - paid for by your taxes are saying already.

Anonymous said...

The suspect, taken into custody in a mental institution late Tuesday, has a lengthy record of rape and other convictions, Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said on NBC’s "Today."

Surrendered or taken into custody??
The BH article goes further with their CYA bullshit:

The suspect apparently had tried to hurt himself with the hammer following the attack on the subway. Family members said they were not initially aware of the attack, but had the suspect committed to the mental institution where he was taken into custody.

suspect tried to hurt himself? BULLSHIT! During that assault he banged himself around - and ran away - frightened jihadi that he is - and was prepared with the damn 'insanity' defense.

where's the report about him repeating "allah" during the assault. The msm should be sued for complicity!

I like Dag.

However, in my opinion, this is not SJS.

This was a planned conspiracy. The child followed after the other black man in a beard.

My opinion is, the other black man in a beard was in on this.

The man would not have run off the train after the defendant if his three year old boy was not being taken care of.

Arm yourselves if you can legally do so (in Philly/Pa. he could have). It's not the police who will be on hand to stop sudden jihad when it happens, it's us.

Islam is a seditious conspiracy . . .I'll give you that much.

Before this msm news video (which documents the victim stating the attacker chanted something about Allah during the attack) meets the twilight zone, download it from YouTube.

Here is an unofficial transcript beginning @:14 second marker With Channel 6 Action Cam reporter,

Dann Cuellar @:14:

"Jim, it's the latest attack on a SEPTA train or a subway. This one involving a crazed man wielding a hammer. Twenty year old, Dwayne Taylor says after getting off work as a lab animal technician at the University of Pennsylvania he boarded the SEPTA North Broad Street line to head home. He fell asleep listening to his iPod and instead of waking up from a nightmare, he awoke to one, with a man punching him at first with his fists and then . . ."

Dwayne Taylor speaks:

"he pulled out a hammer. So he started swinging the hammer and everything."

Dann Cuellar:

"Taylor says all throughout the attack, somewhere in the Spring Gardens section - the man kept chanting something. . ."

Dwayne Taylor speaks @:47:

"Something. Allah something, I'm not too sure. All I know it Arabic. I don't know when he did it"

Dann Cuellar @:53:

"But it was Allah, you remember that word"

Dwayne Taylor @:55 responds with an affirmative nod:

Downloading youtube ...
1) use FIREFOX
2) From the firefox add-on site, get downloadhelper
3) go to youtube and find the page with the video you want.
4) From somewhere on the page right click, and choose download helper
5) select the flv to download, the latest one detected will be at the bottom

That is not what I said, my man.

What I said is wherever I go "I see very few beards."

Point is, if you walk onto a subway in an area where there are few beards, and yet you are surrounded by beards (as this guy was) there may be a reason for it.

By the way, Anonymous. I have a beard.

Some of the anti-IBA commenters lately have really been getting to me.

Is it my imagination, or are their arguments getting dumber and dumberer.

Pastorius said...

Ugh. Are you playing dumb, or are you really not getting the point?

midnight rider said...

Pasto -- I don't know about Epa but I agree with the dumber and dumberer. But it's not just here, it's across the board. Many liberals have taken complete leave of their senses and I don't know why. Alan Colmes (dumb) Chris Matthews (dumber) Olberman (dumberest of them all). When Richard Gere stood at that benefit days after 9/11 and said we should look towards forgiveness (roughly paraphrasing) he was resoundly and rightly booed. John Mellencamp wants to say to Bin Laden (a year or more ago) "My brother (no shit he said that!) how can we work this out?" With that kind of garbage coming from pop culture and poisoning the minds of those to lazy to think what can we expect. Unhinged non-sensical rants that deolve a news and commentary show to a shouting match with the Left outshouting the right, determined not ot let them have their say. BTW I got the beard bit but clearly, you've never been to Pennsylvania Amish Country ;>)

The victim of the brutal hammer attack simply can't catch a break!

police sources told Fox 29 News the beaten subway rider has been victimized again -- this time by a petty thief.Someone picked up that phone and sold it on the street for about $150. That was caught on videotape as well, sources told Fox 29 News.

The alleged thief is seen on a surveillance tape after the 20-year-old beating victim, Dewayne Taylor, and his alleged attacker, 26-year-old Thomas Scantling, tumbled onto a SEPTA platform.

Yes, I'll bet Scantling does have an alias. And, I'll bet you no one calls him Thomas, except for his mother and sister. Everyone else calls him by that alias, and it's a Muslim name ...

I am in a very peevish mood, pasto. Thus my comment.

I have to admit, the volume of anonymous commenters is confusing to respond to.

Therefore it is frustrating.

I wish they would simply pick a name which differentiates each one form the other

It's so simple.

They could just name themselves after jazz bass players, like

Charles Mingus
Charlie Peacock
Edddie Gomez
Paul Chambers
Stanley Clarke
Christian McBride
Malachi Favors


That way it would go along with my name.

Or, if they wanted to go along with your name, there's a whole history of ancient warriors.

Maybe I should have said classical era warriors.

I haven't been on the web much the past few days because classes I teach have resumed.

However, when I caught a glimpse of this story and some video somewhere on the web tonight, I thought, "I wonder if this is a case of a father teaching his son to kill infidels."

As I've read a bit more this evening, I've come to the conclusion that such is exactly the case.

Great post!

PS: I guess that when I got on the web this evening, I should have visited IBA first!

Pastorius: "They could just name themselves after jazz bass players,"

Oy, that is a pet peeve today. When I first became aware of this story I immediately went searching for details on the LIRR shooter and found myself filtering stories about the actor. What sane person would use a mass murderers name for fame? Grumble, grumble. I thought perhaps the LIRR shooter would have some hint of SJS . . .but I found none. Ok, so there ARE nuts in this world that aren't those kind.

Thomas Scantling, on the other hand, isn't simply a nut. And if I have anything to say about it . . .no-one will get away with denying Scantling's jihadi cry for "allah".

I pray that prisons around the country turn against the dawa machine and punish the infiltrators exponentially worse than they do child molesters.

The damage Thomas Scantling has done to this five year old child is unforgivable.

As for the family 'claiming' to have turned Scantling in . . .ha ha ha . . .pull the other one.

If they believed he was such a danger, why was he left alone with a five year old child? Where is child protective services on this? That precious child's entire family should be investigated for putting him in such an incredibly dangerous and avoidable situation. If they knew Thomas D. Scantling had mental issues, they are criminal in their negligence.

EPA . . .I posted many of the links on this thread in a hurry. Sometimes I have trouble with blogger accepting my nic and don't bother if it isn't accepted on first attempt. Today, I was especially rushed - but equally determined to post the information as time permitted. Right now I'm on borrowed time as well - bed/story-time calls.

Close cropped beards are quite fashionable in Iran, as they are among young Muslim males in Europe. They are a good community signal and warning, as you will.

Yo Pastorius,

Yeah, Mingus would have known what to do with these guys. Unbelievable that no one stepped in to help the guy, not even a call to 911. I blame the hip hop: all jive, no rhythm.

Did you know Mingus taught Dannie Richmond to play the drums?

As for Trane, he's the best. Even better than Jaco.

Update: Scantling's 6-year-old son, Maurice was taken from his grandmother and put into foster care this week.

Which is a very good thing because,

Quote: He [Scantling] was released from a treatment facility a few weeks ago after being involuntarily committed, even though his family believed he was still dangerous.

This family believed Scantling to be dangerous yet they permitted the six year old to be alone in his care.


The video showed another side of Thomas Scantling - the side his family often saw.

He was a loving, caring person who was devoted to his son, Maurice.

The video showed Scantling kissing Maurice before the brutal hammer attack.

"They were a team," Scantling's sister said. "Where you saw Maurice, you saw Thomas.

"That little boy loves him to death."

Wednesday, the day after Scantling's arrest, the city's Department of Human Services took Maurice out of his grandmother's house and put him in foster care.

"Maurice lived with me for almost four years," said the grandmother, Scantling's mother, Toni Frazier. "He was very, very upset; he screamed and hollered."

DHS spokeswoman Alicia Taylor would say only that the agency determined that Maurice should be removed from the house. A hearing is scheduled for today to see if he can be placed with a family member.

The boy lived with Grandma for 4 of his six years! The same grandma that put him in a dangerous situation - alone with his mentally ill muslim father!

This boy's psyche has already been damaged. Maurice didn't scream or seem too surprised by the attack now - did he? Maurice even re-entered the train after the assault to retrieve 'daddy's' backpack. Practiced little street urchin in the making? Shame on all the family members responsible for the mental corruption of such a tiny innocent.

The best thing you can do for this child is get him as far removed from this family and islam as possible - permanently. He is already scarred for life.
