There was a terrorist attack in Des Moines, Iowa. The man shot two unexpecting officers in their cruisers. The man was identified as Michael Greene and was caught three hours later in Dallas Texas. The charges are pending on Michael Greene of the murder of two officers. The man confessed to the killings of the officers.
The man was sent to the hospital after confessing due to old medical problems. The slain officers were identified as Justin martin and Anthony Beminio. The police and trying to get a warrant to enter Michael Greene’s house to see if they can find some kind of illegal substance or weapons. The police belief the man had prior mental issues before this attack . Since 2001 the man has been arrested four separate times.
The man shot fifteen to thirty rounds at the police cruiser with a .223 caliber rifle. The officers were found at about one in the morning , well was found at about one thirty . Sgt. Beminio died shortly after being taken to the hospital . The officer's funerals were held Sunday November 7. The officers were one of many attacks on police officers this year.
I believe that this attack could not have been avoided by the officers. I think this attack happened due to the man's mental instability and his prior times he’s spent in jail. The man wasn’t in the right mindset and only wanted to do harm to people . The officers were unfortunately the man's target and were surprise attacked. The man is now in prison and will probably be serving life .
