Sometimes it’s divine Providence that precludes a coming disaster.
It could be as simple as a man missing a plane trip because of a dental emergency and the plane crashes. Yep, that painful cavity saved his life…or rather, the divine power that had it occur at that moment.
And sometimes, that divine power operates differently, though the results remain wholly positive.
In Minneapolis, where a huge influx of Muslim immigrants and refugees has occurred over the past few years, the assimilation rate has been poor at best.
This week, a man was walking down the street when a parked car’s occupants threw a bunch of trash on the ground.
He berated them and threatened to take down their license plate number when they threatened him with guns. That’s when he decided to call the police.
“The man flagged down officers, the complaint says, but the men from inside car continued to yell at him and resisted the officers’ attempts to control the situation.
The men were insistent they needed to be near the car because a drone was coming to deliver a package, the complaint said.
Because of the suspicious circumstances and fear for the man’s safety, the men were placed in the squad while officers searched their car.
Inside, the officers found a hand grenade, handgun, assault rifles and magazines and a large quantity of ammunition, the complaint said.
They also found cellphones, computers and electronics equipment, including drone parts.
Bomb squad personnel called to the scene noted that the large amount of ammunition and electronic devices could be used for bomb-making, the complaint said.”
The man who initially brandished a weapon was 27-year-old Abdullah Alrifahe who was charged with a gross misdemeanor for carrying a pistol without a permit.
Shockingly, no other charges were leveled against the men, though it isn’t known if the case was referred to the FBI or other federal intelligence agencies.
These guys had an arsenal that is HUGELY suspicious; it seems likely that this civilian’s interruption possibly saved many lives. So charges are not, divine Providence still wins the day.
