Phoenix Freeway Shooting: A Terrorist Campaign Launched During Jade Helm 15? And What About Senate Bill 1330?

by Scott Creighton

UPDATE: Holy shit. I found some info on Jade Helm 15 from way back in April that mentions I-10 and the airport. See the end of the article for details.


Leslie Allen Merritt Jr., charged with multiple acts of “terrorism”. He was at Wal-Mart with his wife and kids when dozens of tactical SWAT guys stormed in with assault rifles and arrested him.

The suspect’s mother-in-law, Cynthia Sauceda, agreed.

“Leslie is not like that,” she told KPHO. “That’s not Leslie. Leslie has a big heart. He would not do this, especially when he’s working hard to support his two kids … He goes to work, and he does everything that he’s supposed to be doing.” CBS

Let me get this straight: a hardworking man taking care of his wife and two adorable kids decides for no apparent reason to run around shooting up the freeways with a pistol and then he decided to pawn that one piece of evidence that could put him away for life?

That’s the story?

Are you kidding me?

This has got to be some of the slackest police-work I’ve ever heard of.

In Phoenix, while looking for a suspect in the ongoing freeway shooting spree, law enforcement officers decided to go to local pawnshops, ask if they had a specific caliber handgun and then they took those guns, test fired them and decided they had their man.

Upon further review… it’s the most ridiculous, lazy set-up since the flight of the Magic Bullet. Yeah, there is terrorism going on in Phoenix. The key is looking at the changes that terrorism was designed to provoke and whether or not there were actual terrorists hanging out in the city at the time.

Leslie Allen Merritt Jr., Suspect In Phoenix Freeway Shootings, Says He Is ‘Wrong Guy’

(Arizona has some of the most relaxed gun laws in the country. You can open carry without a permit and you can concealed carry without a permit. You can also carry loaded weapons in your vehicles without a permit. There are no state permits issued to own weapons and no registration laws. There is also no state-wide ban on “assault” weapons. After 11 shooting incidents starting on Aug. 29th, there have been no fatalities and no serious injuries. Seems like someone is turning up the fear factor in support of folks like these. Now their patsy prime suspect apparently has evidence that his gun has been in a pawn shop since a month before the shootings began. Officials decided to swoop in on him in the middle of a Wal-Mart so they could make a big show out of it and garner the maximum “shock and awe” factor they could for the public.)

A landscaper who is the suspect in a series of Phoenix freeway shootings told a judge Saturday that authorities have “the wrong guy” and he hasn’t even been in possession of a gun for two months.

Leslie Allen Merritt Jr., 21, was charged with counts including aggravated assault, criminal damage, disorderly conduct, carrying out a drive-by shooting and intentional acts of terrorism. In a brief court appearance, the prosecutor said he presents a danger to the community after drivers spent the last three weeks on edge.

“The suspect presents a dramatic and profound threat to the community,” the prosecutor said.

Judge Lisa Roberts set bail at $1 million, and Merritt asked to speak to the court.

“All I have to say is I’m the wrong guy. I tried telling the detectives that. My gun’s been in the pawn shop the last two months. I haven’t even had access to a weapon,” he said.
