On May 4th Elton Simpson, 30, and his roommate Nadir Soofi, 34, opened fire on an unarmed security guard outside of a controversial Prophet Muhammad drawing contest hosted by Pamela Geller.
Two days prior to the deadly shooting, a woman living outside of the US, connected to Anonymous, sent a message to the official Garland Police Department’s Twitter account warning them of a potential Islamic State attack.
Police claim they never got the message.
“That is the first time I’ve heard that,” GPD spokesman Joe Harn said, when informed of the warning, according to The Daily Dot. “We were monitoring things; we had the FBI and ATF, but we didn’t see anything [on Twitter].”
The Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest was a Muhammad drawing contest being held under the auspices of free speech, and was hosted by Pamela Geller. The event invited cartoonists to send in cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad. They received more than 350 submissions, and the winner stood to win $10,000.
Anonymous has made it a priority of targeting Islamic State accounts on Twitter and has numerous IS-related groups that regularly attack and track the terrorist group on social media.
According to The Daily Dot:
At 5:37 p.m. on Friday, May 1, the user, who requested anonymity for the sake of her security, tweeted at the Garland Police Department’s official Twitter account, warning them of a potential attack. …
On Friday, the user discovered that another Twitter account, @AnsarAlUmmah49, had referenced an upcoming attack in Garland, where a group of Americans were planning a “draw Mohammad” event.
So the user tweeted to @garlandpd with a link to the tweet in question, which called for an attack, specifically in Garland and on May 3. @AnsarAlUmmah49 has since been deleted.
Although the Garland police department said they did not get the Twitter message, it appears that law enforcement was fully aware of the plot because they had teams on the ground ready to take out the shooters immediately after the attack began.
This raises some deeply concerning questions.
If there were teams on the ground aware of the imminent attack, why were the gunmen permitted to open fire before being neutralized by law enforcement?
If the operation was conducted in the name of ‘public safety’ then these men should have been apprehended and taken into custody before the actual attack took place.
America’s Freedom Fighters said that one possible explanation is that they allowed this plot to progress to the point of actual gunfire with the intention of creating a media sensation of a terrorist attack. This has been proven in the past to make people more fearful and thus more readily willing to give up civil liberties in the name of safety.

It is apparent that the police knew more then they are saying, and one possibility is they allowed this to happen to further their agenda of disarming the American people.
