The media dropped it because the scum is obviously a member of the world-domination ideology cleverly disguised as a religion.
It’s hard to say who or what he is. He’s apparently turned up here and there along the Atlantic Seaboard in recent years.
His name is vaguely French, indicating that he might be from some part of the (formerly) French Caribbean. There are a lot of Muslims in the Caribbean because there was a Pakistani emigration that ended up there in the British and, to a lesser extent, French colonies decades ago.
He has degrees and gets jobs but can’t keep them.
Personally, I’m voting for crazy, but a lot of times, crazy people are ripe for political picking. So I think it’s certainly possible that he was controlled or at least influenced by somebody with a radical Muslim ideology, possibly a Black Muslim separatist or possibly some radical from the typical downtown losers-and-loonies mosque.
