"Mr. Muhammad stated that he was mad at the U.S. military because of what they had done to Muslims in the past," an arrest report filed by the Little Rock police said. "Mr. Muhammad further stated that he would have killed more soldiers if they had been on the parking lot."
In an interview with KATV in Little Rock, Private Long's father, Daris Long, said his son had graduated from basic training at Fort Benning, Ga., just a week ago. "They weren't on the battlefield, but apparently the battlefield's here," he said.
Mr. Muhammad was heavily armed when he was arrested Monday shortly after fleeing the shooting scene in his black Ford truck. The police confiscated an SKS military-style rifle and a .22-caliber rifle found inside the truck, they said, as well as a .380-caliber semiautomatic handgun he had tucked in his waistband.
Mr. Muhammad was wearing a green utility belt holding more than 150 rounds of ammunition for the two rifles, and an additional 24 rounds for the handgun were in his pants pocket, according to a police inventory.
NO white washing going to come, from this girl. This is a tragedy for our country, our military and American citizens. MY heart goes out to the family and friends who have suffered the loss of their loved one. My head goes our to a country that needs to be aware and awaken to the events that are going on in America, that are not acknowledged by a large portion of the news media.
