A quick thinking school bus driver prevents armed terrorists from doing “God’s will” and attacking students and teachers at an elementary school in Macon County, NC.
Earlier this week Adam Conley, 38, and Kathryn Jeter, 29, both heavily armed, were arrested on the South Macon Elementary School grounds. When asked why they were at the school with loaded guns the suspects said it was “God’s will.”
When asked what they would do if children and teachers had shown up, they said that “if it would have been God’s will for us to shoot the children” they would have shot them.
However, quick thinking school bus driver Alice Bradley prevented what could have been a horrific tragedy. In a press conference Friday, Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland praised Bradley for preventing a potential bloodbath.
According to reports, bus driver Alice Bradley spotted Conley and Jeter near her bus at South Macon Elementary on Thursday morning. Bradley said Conley pointed a gun at her and she floored her car toward him, sending him running for cover.
Bradley called 911, and police responded by quickly apprehending the subjects before anyone was hurt.
Bus driver Bradley said:
Everybody says I’m a hero. I’m not a hero. I just reacted like anybody else would.
Authorities report they seized five handguns from the couple had in their possession.
Authorities charged the pair with attempted first-degree murder, assault with intent to kill, gun possession and animal cruelty. Sheriff Holland said the couple admitted killing a cat that roamed the school grounds.
In his press conference Friday, Sheriff Holland said:
One of the individuals made the statement that if it was God’s will to shoot children and teachers, and if the other suspect wanted the suspect to do so, they would have proceeded to start shooting children and teachers.
Currently the couple is being held on a $1 million bond at the Macon County Jail.
One can only wonder what the media reaction would have been if rather than two white suspects babbling about “God’s will,” it would have been two brown suspects declaring “Allahu Akbar” instead.
