Garland Shooting One Year Later

One year ago Tuesday, two men tried to shoot up a Prophet Mohammed cartoon contest in Garland.

Terrorism expert Jeffrey Addicott told KTSA News that something like that could happen again.

“The rise of radical Islamic extremism is still continuing,” Addicott said. “Last year alone, we had 76 arrests or prosecutions by the Department of Justice and the FBI.”

That was a record, he said.

“I think part of the issue is that we are unable to clearly identify, from a leadership position, who the enemy is and how to deal with them,” he said.

Each day, Addicott said, we become less safe.

“Because time is not on our side,” he said. “These jihadists want to kill us in large numbers, they’re getting more sophisticated. ISIS is still alive and well.”
