Shooter in Ark. soldier killing gets life sentence

He ‘claimed ties to Al-Qaeda but this was never proven’:

A man who admitted to killing one soldier and wounding another at an Army recruiting office pleaded guilty to the crimes on Monday and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Abdulhakim Muhammad, charged with capital murder for the deadly 2009 shooting, entered his plea during his trial in order to avoid the death penalty, officials told Reuters…

During college, he changed his name from Carlos Bledsoe after converting to Islam. He traveled to Yemen in 2007, according to authorities.

It’s important to remember that the Norway shooter was apparently a right-wing Christian.


  1. Yeh, but a true Christian would not shoot people. I am a ‘no-wing’ Christian, I walk everywhere, a prepper and a gun-owner. This will just be fuel for the ‘OMG-get-all-the-guns’ people.

  2. Is it just me or does it seem like a bad idea to put militant muslims in American prisons where they are free to preach their vitriol to the disenfranchised and criminal element?
