Last night at roughly 8:30 pm, a car with an ISIS flag rammed a traffic checkpoint on Stadium Road near 92 Street, striking an officer and sending him flying into the air. “Suddenly and without notice and at a high rate of speed, a male driving a white, Chevrolet Malibu crashed through the traffic barricades that were separating vehicles from pedestrians, the vehicle struck the officer, sending him flying into the air 15 feet before colliding with the officer’s cruiser, again at a high rate of speed.” The jihadi jumped out of his car and “viciously attacked” the Edmonton Police Service member with a knife.
Then, before midnight a U-Haul truck, stopped at a checkpoint, took off, and “deliberately tried to hit pedestrians in crosswalks and alleys in two areas along Jasper Avenue.”
As I reminded readers last night here, it was the city of Edmonton that removed my ads from city buses that offered help to Muslim girls who wanted to escape honor violence and live free lives. Muslims complained about the ads — one would have to assume they support honor killings. The city caved to jihad and sharia supporters. We sued the city and lost. You reap what you sow.
Edmonton Police release video of terror attack
WARNING: Video contains disturbing images. Edmonton police released security video showing a car ramming into a police officer and the suspect getting out of the vehicle to stab the officer.
A terrorism investigation is underway in Edmonton, where a police officer was stabbed and four pedestrians struck down by a fleeing U-Haul truck Saturday night.
A 30-year-old Edmonton man is in custody and police think he acted alone, but they aren’t ruling out the potential for others to be be involved.
“We are urging Edmontonians to be vigilant and aware of their surroundings,” Edmonton Police Service Chief Rod Knecht said in a 3 a.m. news conference on the attacks.
At around 11:30 p.m., reporter Laurel Gregory was just wrapping up a live report at the end of Global Edmonton’s News at 11 when a police officer shouted out a warning: “Get behind a tree. Or a car. This is for your own protection!”

The chaos began down the street from Commonwealth Stadium, where the Edmonton Eskimos were hosting the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Canadian Forces Appreciation Night. Over 30,000 people were at the game.
Police said at around 8:15 p.m., a car rammed a traffic checkpoint on Stadium Road near 92 Street, striking an officer and sending him flying into the air.
“Suddenly and without notice and at a high rate of speed, a male driving a white, Chevrolet Malibu crashed through the traffic barricades that were separating vehicles from pedestrians, the vehicle struck the officer, sending him flying into the air 15 feet before colliding with the officer’s cruiser, again at a high rate of speed,” Knecht explained.
A source has confirmed to Global News the police officer injured in the attack is 30-year-old Const. Mike Chernyk.
Knecht said there was an ISIS flag in the car. A photo of that type of flag appears below.
Knecht said a man, believed to be 30 years old, then jumped out of his car and “viciously attacked” the Edmonton Police Service member with a knife. “A struggle then ensued, during which the male suspect stabbed the officer several times before fleeing the scene on foot northbound down 92nd street.”
The officer was taken to hospital and treated for non life-threatening injuries while a manhunt was launched.
