An attack by a Muslim prisoner leaves a guard severely injured but the press is absent…nothing is reported except locally. Washington state has become a hotbed of jihadist activity:
THIS REPORT FROM DECEMBER OF 2015:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation in Seattle gave a rare press conference Friday inviting the public to play a more active role in preventing terrorism.
Special Agent in Charge Frank Montoya Jr. gave an eye-opening statistic on how many individuals in Washington state they are looking at who could have possible domestic or international terrorist ties.
“There are a lot of them – not quite a hundred, but more than 70. That’s what we know about,” Montoya said.
We need to know these things but the press is silent!
FORKS — A Clallam Bay Corrections Center officer who suffered serious head injuries last week continued to improve but remained hospitalized Monday.
Correctional Officer Terry Breedlove remained at Forks Community Hospital and will remain there until he can walk, according to his family.
“He’s going to be here longer, I think,” said Breedlove’s mother, Joanne Spaulding.
Breedlove suffered a brain injury during an attack Jan. 25 by inmate Abdinjib Ibraham, 28, of King County, investigators said.
An MRI was performed on Breedlove on Saturday. It showed injuries to two vertebrae, Spaulding said.
Breedlove can stand but experiences difficulty once standing, she said.
Remains on lockdown
The prison, which holds 900 inmates, went on lockdown after the attack and remained on lockdown Monday.
Inmates are confined to their cells and there is no visitation.
Ibraham said “Allahu akbar” (an Islamic phrase meaning “God is greater”) twice — once when he hit the guard, and again after the attack, said Brian King, chief criminal deputy for the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputy Ed Anderson, the West End supervisor for the Sheriff’s Office who is in charge of the investigation into the attack, said he spent most of Monday interviewing witnesses in the prison.
“We’re still gathering information,” Anderson said.
Breedlove was on duty in a medium-security portion of the prison when he was attacked, Anderson said.
Ibraham had pried a round metal seat off a stool in a cell and repeatedly hit Breedlove over the head with it until other inmates stopped the attack, investigators have said.
Security cameras were not working at the time, investigators have said.
Prison officials said the cameras have since become operational.
Ibraham, who was serving a King County sentence for four counts of vehicular assault, driving under the influence, second-degree taking a motor vehicle and first-degree robbery, has been transferred to Walla Walla.
