Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office releases the video and 911 calls in the terrorism case.
This may be one of the wildest videos that you’ll ever see. The incident happened in January but the recording and video were just released this past week.
Does anyone want to bet the wanna-be-terrorist sues the city?
So this may be the most Bizarre 9-1-1 call you will ever hear. Ismail Hamed calls 9-1-1 to declare his allegiance to ISIS, yet it really only gets weirder from there. pic.twitter.com/xXWRHBsFXU

On-body camera footage from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office shows a sergeant shooting an 18-year-old man twice in Fountain Hills last month as the man walked toward him holding a knife.
Sgt. Brandon Wells shot Ismail Hamed, who prosecutors charged with aggravated assaulted and terrorism, on Jan. 7 outside a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office substation.
The release of the footage and two 911 calls comes as a result of Maricopa County Superior Judge Sally Duncan’s order on Tuesday. The Arizona Republic and several other media outlets had sued over the county’s effort to seal the documents.
Duncan told a prosecutor for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, which represents the Sheriff’s Office, at a court hearing that they must release the records as soon as possible unless he had specific reasons to withhold the videos, 911 calls, police report and a probable-cause statement.
The report and the probable-cause statement had not been released as of Thursday night.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Hamed called a 911 operator twice asking to speak to a deputy.
He told one of the operators he had a knife and some rocks. More
How many heard about this? County had to be sued to release the info.

He said: ”My name is Ismail Hamed. I live in Fountain Hills, and I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I just want a cop to come real quick and I want to deal with them. Hamed admitted he had “two rocks and a knife.”
What if Hamed had been lying? What if he had had a gun or a bomb-rigged car? Why was one cop dispatched at first?
