Zale Thompson: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Zale Thompson has been named as the ax-wielding maniac who tried to kill four NYPD officers in Queens on October 23. You can watch the insane video of the attack above. Thompson managed to injure two of the cops before being shot dead by the other two.

Here’s what we know so far:

1. Thompson Wielded an 18-Inch Ax & Never Said a Word

Thompson was shot dead on Jamaica Avenue near 162nd Street in Queens after he attacked a group of cops with an 18-inch ax as the officers posed for a photo. DNA Info reports a freelance photographer had approached the foot-patrol officers and asked to take their picture.

Thompson attacked them without saying a word, according to witnesses. Officer Kenneth Healey, 25, suffered a severe wound to the head, and Officer Joseph Meeker, 24, was injured in the arm. Both are rookies in the NYPD.

2. He Was Discharged From the Navy & Was a ‘Proponent of Black Power’

CNN reports that Thompson was discharged from the Navy and that he had a criminal record in California. His Navy discharge was related to misconduct.

According to his Facebook page, Thompson is a native of Queens who graduated in 2011 from the Teachers College at Columbia University. His page also says he attended the The College of New Rochelle and High School of Graphic Communications Arts. His last-known address was in East New York, Brooklyn, but the New York Post reports that he had moved to Jamaica, Queens, this year. Neighbors called him “weird” and said he constantly fought with his girlfriend and mother while he lived in Brooklyn.

He is 32 years old. On his LinkedIn page, Thompson lists his skills as Microsoft Office, public speaking and research. A source told the New York Post that Thompson was “very educated” and was a proponent of “black power.”

On his Facebook page, he also went by the name Zaim Farouq Abdul-malik.

3. Zale Wrote About Jihad & Guerilla Warfare & Wanted to ‘Rise Up’ Against the Government

In the comments section under this video, Zale Thompson wrote:

If you’re looking for “perfect” muslims who never make any mistakes in
their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the
Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands after WW1, then
there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do
nothing, or to Jihad fisabeelallah!

In the comments section under a YouTube posting of the song “No White God” by Sizzla, Thompson writes:

It’s ok for white people to draw pictures of a white jesus, and then colonize Africa, and enslave the negro in America, wipe out the native American, and invade the middle east. They call black people racist for rejecting the oppression they suffered from whites. Listen, when black people have colonized the entire continent of Europe, enslaved its people, and sold them into bondage to foreign lands, then you can call them racist.

Zale Thompson Friend Facebook

One of Thompson’s friends, Frank Sha Francois, told The Daily News:

He never expressed, to me, that I could recall, that he would do anything violent. Yes he said there were things that needed to be done, non-violent, collective action. We spoke against all aspects of any type of terrorism — foreign terrorism, domestic terrorism, terrorism committed by groups and by governments; any act of violence where innocent lives were spilled. We spoke against that.

However, in one Facebook post, Thompson wrote:

Helicopters, big military will be useless on their own soil. They will not be able to defeat our people if we use guerrilla warfare. Attack their weak flanks.

ABC New York reports that Thompson has “a long history of filled with what sources describe as hate speech aimed at what he apparently saw as the white government power structure in America, suggesting it was time to rise up in opposition.”

4. This Attack Comes Amid a Wave of ‘Lone Wolf’ Incidents

It’s unclear at this point if this was a lone wolf terror attack. The incident comes during the same week that recent Islam-convert Michael Zehaf-Bibeau shot and killed Cpl. Nathan Cirillo in Ottawa, Canada. When NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton was asked whether Thompson’s attack was terror related, he replied, “This early on, we really cannot say yes or no to that question.”

The FBI has warned that ISIS-inspired terrorists may stage scattered “lone wolf” attacks against police, soldiers and other targets. A September 21 audio address from ISIS put out the call for open-source jihad — calling on Muslims to kill non-believers:

If you can kill a disbelieving American or European … or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State … kill him in any manner or way however it may be …

As early as July, A law enforcement bulletin forecast the potential for such attacks.

5. NYPD Officer Kenneth Healey Remains in Critical Condition

Officer Kenneth Healey, a 25-year-old rookie in the NYPD, was critically injured in the attack. The other officer injured was Joseph Meeker. According to Newsday, both are natives of Long Island. CBS New York reports that Healey’s father is a 34-year Nassau County detective.

The Daily News reports that a homeless woman was hit by a stray bullet during the incident. She’s also in critical condition.

Mayor Bill de Blasio commended the officers involved:

I was very impressed by not only the bravery in the face of something absolutely unexpected, but the way the two officers responded to the incident and were able to stop the situation and deal with the perpetrator.

Lost man , believing his culture is not and following what could be seen as trend for people like him , who do not have goals in their daily life . Pur observation .
Anyway , for his information , who he called Crusaders and Zionists , happened more after WWII , and even as a non-jew , if find funny he had no trouble to call a land an islamic one but it is the end of the world when it would be to a Jewish one , whatever happened in the past , like the world just started when that land was with a muslim , I could never cope with that limited culture .

Your problem in North America , is those religious associations in your Colleges , Universities : Which gives us that yours are in their ending 20’s , 30’s while in Europe , it is more about some living places , and they are in their teens years and 20’s .


Charlotte, stop using google translate and learn English if you want to post in English.


Another lowlife loser that became a victim of the cult of mohammed and his BS call to violence.


If Obama had a boy; would he have looked like Zale Thompson. Would he have attacked policemen like the officer in Ferguson that you failed to support and ignored the inconvenient facts. Obama is a poor excuse for a President. Has he made any statements regarding this attack or is he too busy fundraising or golfing.


What does the President have to do with this particular incident, I swear with all the shit that’s goiing on in this country it must feel really good being able to point the finger at somebody. When both of the Bush dummies father and son were in the white house they did absolutely nothing as presidents so I guess their excuse was fundraising and golf as well. The police in this country are out of control unfortunately these officers were rookies, so i guess it makes a difference maybe this should have happened in Ferguson Missouri or St Louis Illinois where the cops shot down 2 unarmed black teenagers. This is the world we live in you see it, you read about it, and you hear about it everyday it’s just another normal day in the good ole USA and for the record, President Obama is the only one who has to catch the bullshit flack. Deal With It.


What did Trayvon Martin have to do with the president, when he said “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”? You can get your panties in a twist all you want, but the reality, Barry O wants to be associated with black crime, you know, so long as it serves his political purpose. He also knows people like you will flack for him when he gets mocked for his idiocy, the way the person to whom you responded did.

Most of you guys went to school. So, I don’t get why you guys don’t see that this man has been manipulated by the police. He probably was suffering a mental disease and we would never know. Fyi..every black person is not racist like you funky azz crackers.





Ax-Wielding Negro Muslim In Queens Wanted
White People “To Pay” For Slavery

The self-radicalized
madman who attacked four rookie Queens cops with a hatchet had more than just ¬jihad
on his mind — he also wanted to kill white people.

“He wanted white people
to pay for all that slavery and all that racism,” the father of slain hatchet
loon Zale Thompson, 32, told The Post Saturday. “I think he committed suicide —
and he was taking one of y’all with him,” his father, Ralph Thompson, said,
speaking through the screen door of the two-story Queens Village house where
his unhinged son also once lived.

Asked if “one of y’all”
meant white people,” the father said, “Yeah.”

“He just said, ‘They have to pay for all their unfairness,’?”
the father added. “Unfairness for the way they treat black people.”

The only way to defeat Islam is with Christian apologetics. How can one have a radical understanding of or take the Koran literally, if they do not believe the Koran is true or that Mohammed even qualifies as a profit.
