    NY - Police Detective Brian O’Donnell Attacked with Meat Cleaver, NY, 15 Sep 2016


    A man wielding an 11-inch meat cleaver near Pennsylvania Station and resisting police officers’ efforts to catch him on Thursday slashed an off-duty detective in the head before being shot by the police, the authorities said, in an episode that sent commuters and tourists fleeing during the evening rush.

    The man, Akram Joudeh, 32, was critically injured and taken to Bellevue Hospital Center, the police said. The off-duty detective, identified by the police as Brian O’Donnell, was in serious condition. Two other officers were taken to the center with injuries that were not life-threatening.

    Suspect Akram Joudeh was only in New York for Thursday’s Midtown rampage because he was appealing a deportation notice — with a hearing set for Oct. 14, a high-ranking NYPD source told the Daily News.

    Cops found two knives inside Joudeh’s car after answering the July report of an erratic man on Shore Parkway in Brooklyn shout “Allahu Akbar!” — or “God is great” in Arabic.

    [...]

    Joudeh, a career criminal who was likely living in his nearby parked car, went berserk when two police officers approached the vehicle — and went after the pair with the cleaver, police said.

    According to sources:

    ...investigations by the NYPD and FBI showed Joudeh, 32, was emotionally disturbed and not a terrorist threat.

    Actually, I'd prefer he spend the rest of his life in a high-security prison here in the US. If he is deported, I think he'd be a high terrorist risk. JMO
