BREAKING: FBI Agent, Boston Cop Shoot Terrorist Suspect


“A man under 24-hour surveillance by anti-terrorism investigators was shot and fatally wounded by a Boston police officer and an FBI agent Tuesday morning as he threatened them with a large, military knife, authorities said. Usaama Rahim, 26, attacked after he was approached in Boston’s Roslindale neighborhood as part of an ‘investigation that’s been going on for some time by the Joint Terrorism Task Force,’ Police Commissioner William B. Evans said at a news conference Tuesday afternoon.” That’s from the Boston Globe. The Fibbies are being closed mouthed about why Rahim was being followed, but made a point of assuring the public that there’s no immediate threat. Feel better?

    This is exactly why I carry: “Because there is no immediate threat.”

  2. avatar BillC says:

    What’s your point?

    1. avatar William B. says:

      The obvious point is never trust the government. No matter which of the two sides who appear to be represented in these comments is correct, i.e., the agent and cop were jackbooted thugs who overreacted and murdered a guy they didn’t have to, or they only took out a dumb underling while accomplishing nothing to stop a terrorist plot in which he was potentially involved (or both), you still shouldn’t trust the government.

        Whhaaaaaat the government is your salvation!

  3. avatar Yee says:

    Fix your headline: Boston man murdered after confronting government goons who have been following him, it should have been a defensive gun use.

    1. avatar Shire-man says:

      Hear, hear!

      He probably didnt want to get involved in whatever ridiculous nonsense the federales were trying to coerce him into and when the g-men got uppity he got nervous.

      1. avatar chris says:

        How the hell do you know.

        1. avatar Yee says:

          Because ever since 9/11 the vast majority of “terrorism busts” have been blatant entrapment of gullible idiots by the FBI, and using threats of persecution to induce people to become informants and patsies has been standard government procedure for decades (see Randy Weaver).

        2. avatar JR_in_NC says:

          No one will know for sure, and that’s the point.

          Some light reading for you, Chris.

          There is an interesting and well done documentary that delves into fed involvement in regard to some “investigations” that had something to do with OKC bombing. There are a LOT of question marks.

          The documentary:

    2. avatar Pieslapper says:

      And they did it without killing any dogs or innocent bystanders.

  4. avatar Don't Tread on Me says:

    “Feel better?” (In a sad, dejected voice) Noooo….

  5. avatar Mark Lloyd says:

    “No immediate threat” Yeah as if they would really tell us anyway. There could be an immediate threat and the government wouldn’t tell us while Obama tries to disarm us.

    1. avatar Yee says:

      There was a threat all right. The feds saw it through.

  6. avatar Vhyrus says:

    Ban military style assault knives?

    1. avatar notalima says:

      With pinky things that go up.

    2. avatar Tex300BLK says:

      BREAKING…Williams & Sonoma and other high end kitchenware stores will now have to apply for FFL’s and perform background checks on purchasers if they wish to continue selling “military style” highly sharpened high quality steel kitchen knives. Wushtoff and other fine european cutlery manufacturers will be subject to strict import regulations and must file all blades flat before being eligible for import. Final edge sharpening may only be performed by a licensed distributor once in the US.

    3. avatar William B. says:

      New lexicon: “knife violence”, “assault knife”, “these knives are made for one purpose only: to kill”, “they cling to their Bibles and their military-style knives”, “that big knife is just a substitute for his small penis”, and “real men don’t need knives”.

      1. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

        Such a high capacity knife, at that!

        Where’s Mom Demand Action demanding that no one needs more than three inches to get the job done?

        1. avatar Grindstone says:

          Dick joke in 3… 2…

    4. avatar C says:

      I came here specifically for this comment.

  7. avatar Tex300BLK says:

    oh boy… now we have “military” style knives?

    1. avatar Fred says:

      “Military” as an adjective used to make anything sound more dangerous.

      Actually, I think I own one of those ontario spec plus bowies (Come to think of it, I own way too many knives…).
      They’re good blades but so far as I know they aren’t issued by any military.

      1. avatar Tommy Kocker says:

        Same thoughts exactly…. Just like ARs, if it LOOKS remotely “military” then its incalculably more dangerous than an old fashion Bowie knife.

      2. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

        Especially “Intelligence.”

      3. avatar Andy says:

        I think they do (or did) the M9 bayonet and the Air Force survival knife.

    2. avatar Gunr says:

      How about “Assault” knives

  8. avatar Red In Texas says:

    Aloha snack bar!!!!

    72 of the purest goats are waiting for you.

  9. avatar Gordon Wagner says:

    Guess they didn’t want him talking.

    1. avatar doesky2 says:

      Can’t have another prisoner added to Gitmo during the reign of the Islamist Nobel Peace prize winner.

  10. avatar Yee says:

    Extra funny points if the government goon was using a full-auto MP7: man defending himself with a military assault knife murdered by heroic public servant with a personal defense weapon.

  11. avatar Tommy Kocker says:

    CNN Wolf Blitzer just now … “a HUGE MILITARY knife !”. Get ready folks..I can see Rep Chuck Schumer all set to hold a press conference !

  12. avatar Anon in CT says:

    Schumer is now the senior Senator from NY. After Dingy Harry Reid finally leaves, Schumer may be the Senate Minority Leader.

    1. avatar BlueBronco says:

      Shoomer is a gun banner from way back. He is an old punk.

  13. avatar bob says:

    As long as the cops got home safely…

    1. avatar jerry says:

      Yeah, I suppose they could have just let the guy carve on them a little first, give him a sporting chance.

      1. avatar Chris Mallory says:

        Maybe they should quit accosting people on the street. The citizen should have every right to defend himself from armed government employees. The rights of a citizen are more important than the safety of a government employee.

        1. avatar Stitch1870 says:

          What makes you any different from a sworn officer defending oneself from a deadly attack?

        2. avatar Yee says:

          For one, regular people don’t accost and harass people, then murder the victims when they resist.

        3. avatar Stitch1870 says:

          You’re right, I’m sure they just ran up on him and started to wantonly beat him with their nightsticks. But I’m sure you were there any know exactly how things happened without any flaw in your recollection of the events. Get bent dude.

  14. avatar Cameron b says:

    Knive that large are already prohibited for carry in the bay state. If I remember right it’s any blade over 2.5″.

  15. avatar Ralph says:

    A jihadist in Boston? Nonsense. That’s never happened before.

  16. avatar El Mac says:

    @DZ, do I feel safer? Not personally because I don’t live up there. But for those people up there, it’s a big plus. One more shit head down. Good job FBI and coppers!

    1. avatar Yee says:

      Only “bad guys” are investigated by the feds! Summary execution for thoughtcrimes! MURICA!

    2. avatar Grindstone says:

      Why don’t you go ahead and take a sharpie to that part about “due process” in the Constitution?

      1. avatar jerry says:

        Due process? He attacked them with a knife, what should they have done?

        1. avatar Yee says:

          Two armed thugs are accosting and threatening you, what would you do?

        2. avatar Chris Mallory says:

          Since they were government employees, they should have a duty to retreat.

        3. avatar BlueBronco says:

          True, but you would think that a 24 hour FBI surveillance would be ready for him and be able to take him down for proper interrogation.

  17. avatar SpeleoFool says:

    You know, if I had a son he’d look like Usaama.

    Well, ok, probably not….

  18. avatar barnbwt says:

    Odds this guy was encouraged by fed informants/officers? Odds they needed a quick excuse to start tapping all phones again (as if they stopped)? In any case, keep ’em comin’ as incompetent goobs, please.

  19. avatar Andy says:

    At least he had the good sense to buy a decent knife. That’s an Ontario Knife Company blade.

    Great stuff!

  20. avatar Sian says:

    IS Dan implying that this was a bad shoot?

    Because someone comes at me with a Ka-Bar style knife I am lighting him up like the 4th of July.

  21. avatar ghost says:

    Good glad the cops killed another sub human piece of trash one less shit bird we have to worry about

    1. avatar Chris Mallory says:

      “sub human piece of trash”

      Glorious agents of the Fatherland liquidated another Untermensch. Ein Volk, ein Reich

      Right ghost?

      1. avatar Yee says:

        Sieg Heil!

  22. avatar Matt says:

    “We were able to do this with data collected under the patriot act.” in 3, 2, 1….

    1. avatar BlueBronco says:

      Apparently they did it the old fashioned way, with surveillance!

  23. avatar Yadama says:

    Why is it some gun owners questions any lil’ fart that goes on in gov’t when it comes to gun rights, but then completely trust said gov’t when it comes to ‘terrorist activities’? Is it because ‘terrorist activities’ give you a better platform to advocate gun rights? Bugs my mind that some claim 2nd amendment as a check to gov’t, but are all okay with bulk phone collection and destroying their 4th amendment rights in the name of the gov’t fighting ‘terrorism’. I mean, you’re more likely to get strike TWICE by lightning in your lifetime than being killed in a ‘terrorist attack’.

  24. avatar Raul Ybarra says:

    Getting a bit tired of seeing that knife in the pics like it’s a bad thing. For cripes sake, it’s a standard bowie knife. More specifically, it’s an Ontario SP1 Marine. It’s what I have and a fantastic alternative to a Ka-bar. I guess the fact that it is a “black” knife makes it more dangerous?
