Jihad in Tulsa?

OK, what's up with this story? Why didn't it make the news? Why was it only in the local paper? Does this bother anyone else?

In a Tulsa World story, it was reported that Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer, Sheldon Robinson, foiled a possible mass shooting by a man who was "praying to Allah to help carry out his mission".

Patrolman Sheldon Robinson

While off duty, Patrolman Robinson dropped his wife and two children off at a Tulsa Burger King and was taking his truck across the street to get the oil changed while they had lunch. Robinson received a cell phone call from his wife saying that there was a man dressed in black with a gun saying he was going to "kill everybody".

Robinson raced back in his truck to the Burger King where people were scrambling out. His wife and kids found refuge in a sanitation bin shelter.

As Robinson made his way into the BK, he was able to come in behind the man and wrestled the gun out of his hands. By the time local police arrived, he had already handcuffed the man, identified as Jerome Norvell Denson, 24.

Denson had a .40 caliber Glock handgun and a box of ammo on a table next to him.

"It was one of those deals of being in the right place at the right time," Robinson said. "I believe he would have loaded up that gun and gone to town because he was praying for Allah to help him carry out his mission."

So, is this connected? Is this an isolated incident? Why hasn't the media jumped on this? Is it now taboo to talk about people praying to Allah before slaughtering crowds of people, EVEN IF IT IS IN AMERICA'S HEARTLAND?

What do you think?
