Illegal alien jihadist gets 30 years in prison for ISIS-style attack on NYPD cops

An illegal alien has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for his Islamic State (ISIS) inspired stabbing attack on New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers.

Dzenan Camovic, a 22-year-old illegal alien from Bosnia, was sentenced in federal court this week to 30 years in prison for taking an NYPD officer’s gun and shooting it at others officers as well as for stabbing an officer and attempting to stab other officers while shouting “Allahu Akbar”, often used by Islamic jihadists.

The entire attack was filmed by surveillance cameras and body cameras:

According to an unsealed Department of Justice (DOJ) indictment, at 11:30 p.m. June 3, Camovic walked past two NYPD officers and crouched for some time while staring at them. Next, Camovic rounded the corner and approached the two NYPD officers before stabbing Officer Yayon Frantz Jean Pierre in the neck.

Camovic then chased officer Randy Ramnarine in an attempt to stab him as well before running back to attack Jean Pierre and take his gun. Camovic shot Ramnarine several times, catching him in the hand, before more NYPD officers arrived to arrest the illegal alien.

DOJ officials said Camovic would be deported from the United States after serving his sentence. He will also be convicted in a New York court for the same attack.
