A 46-year-old Somali MUSLIM savage (immigration status unknown) identified as Hussein Hassan attacked a police officer in Kennewick, Washington, over the weekend with a large sword, striking at the officer’s head before he was shot and killed.
WND The two officers arrived on the scene at the same time in separate cars at about 6:40 p.m. One officer got out of his car to confront Hassan and police say the man started swinging the sword, striking the officer at least once in the head with the blade.
Both officers opened fire on the suspect and put him down like a rabid dog. The officer was treated and released from an area hospital after receiving 17 staples to close the head wound.
Almost 24 hours later, on Monday evening, police identified the dead man as Hassan, but gave only scant details – his age and current city of residence. The area where the incident occurred reportedly has a heavy Muslim migrant population, but Hassan’s immigration status remains a tightly held secret.
Kennewick, a small city (below) of about 73,000 population, has been a hotbed of Muslim refugee resettlement over the years. The U.S. State Department, in cooperation with the United Nations, has distributed several hundred refugees into Kennewick since 9/11 from Muslim-majority nations, according to the State Department’s online database.
Almost all of the Kennewick residents who posted comments on the police department’s Facebook page were supportive of the officers’ quick reaction to put down the sword-wielding Hassan.
