If he lives it may be more likely that some dots start getting connected.
Yep. If he dies, the MSM will spin it as Caucasians who were pushed over the edge by intolerant bullies who were not sensitive to their multicultural ways, everything else will try to be shoved down the memory hole.
If he lives he's going to be spouting off with allahu akhbar and their muslim b.s. and it will be unavoidable this was jihadi terrorism.
If he lives he'll have a leftist lawyer who will coach him to sound like a victim rather than a jihadi, and a lefist media who will gladly play along. I'd rather see him dead.
