Syracuse: Muslim airport worker threatens to ‘get my gun and kill everybody’

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — A contract employee at Syracuse Hancock International Airport was charged Saturday with making a terrorist threat after he said he would bring a gun to work and “shoot everybody,” police said.

Mohammad Salak, a 33-year-old employee of the company Envoy, hired by United Airlines to handle ground services, became the focus of an investigation after fellow employees relayed what he had said on Friday, Lt. Eric Carr of the Syracuse Police Department said. The employees told investigators with Syracuse Police, airport security, FBI and TSA that Salak made threats to get a gun and shoot everybody, Carr said.

Salak, of Gordon Parkway, had gotten into a fight with another Envoy employee on Friday, Carr said in a news release. Carr provided the following account:

After the two employee exchanged words, another employee overheard Salak, upset, saying, “They don’t know where I’m from. I’ve been in wars. I’ve killed people and killing somebody is nothing to me. I’ll leave here and go get my mask and my gun and come and kill everybody”…

    A Muslim security guard at an airport is an act of treason, a lunacy similar to wolves guarding henhouses and then being surprised when the hen population starts to shrink.

      Not a security guard, but he had “security credentials” to work airside.

        True but exactly the same danger.

        exactly, he could be planting bombs in luggage.

        Obama and his muslim brothers in DHS all belong on the gallows.

    Mohammed Salak said, “I’ve killed people and killing somebody is nothing to me.”

    The companions of Mohammed the Pedophile Pirate said: “Arabs are the most noble people … and the best in deeds… We are Allah’s helpers … We fight people until they believe in Allah… As for one who disbelieves, we will fight him forever in Allah’s Cause. Killing him is A SMALL MATTER TO US.” -Tabari IX: 69

      A typical white guy would get pissed off and angry at work and say something like, “I’m heading home and having a few beers and put this day behind me!” The muzz decides to become spontaneously a devout Muslim and something kicks into the muzzie psyche. Islam is a wicked cult. *PATHETIC*

        A typical white guy would get pissed off and call his union rep to file a complaint…

    He only threatened fellow workers, not the travelling public, so I expect he’ll be able to regain his security credentials.

    • Alain

      I fear you are correct.

    He looks like he’s dead. So many fundies have that same dead look in their eyes.

    Syracuse is pretty redneck. Sure he wasn’t just being a redneck?
