An outspoken North Texas lawman took to Facebook after Monday’s deadly bombing in England to warn residents a similar attack could happen here.
“This is what happens when you disarm your citizens,” Denton County Sheriff Tracy Murphree wrote. “When you open your borders without the proper vetting. When you allow political correctness to dictate how you respond to an enemy that wants to kill you.”
At least 22 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in the explosion outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. The Islamic State claimed the attacker — whom police identified as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, who was born in Manchester — as one of its own.
Murphree’s post continues: “You better wake up America. While you are distracted by the media and the crying of the left, Islamic Jihadist are among us and want to kill you. What will it take? This happening at a concert in Dallas or a school in Denton County?
