Paris, France A man rammed a vehicle full of explosives into police van on Monday. The car exploded on impact, badly burning the driver who subsequently died.
This is the new normal in Paris.
Via Fox News:
A suspect who tried to attack security forces on the Champs-Elysees shopping district in Paris Monday afternoon when he rammed his car into a police van had a rifle and explosives in his vehicle, French investigators said.
The attacker died shortly after the incident, the French interior minister said. The attacker, a 33-year-old man, was badly burned after his car exploded when he deliberately crashed it into a police van. The police van caught fire, but it was quickly contained, officials said. The bomb squad was called to the scene.
Authorities discovered a gas tank and an AK-47 rife in the attackers car, Fox News confirmed. The man was known by police and was under surveillance, Pierre-Henry Brandet, a spokesman for the interior ministry, told Fox News.

Another “Known by police and under surveillance” terrorist. It’s like that ad where the bank is getting robbed but the Security Guard is just a Security Monitor. “There’s a robbery.” In this case “There’s another Terrorist. Let’s watch him blow something up.”
Keep up the good work!
Yep....he was known.
Now he is extra crispy
Call the Driver whst he was, in the most unkind way, a “JI - Hsdi A*Hole*!”
Was his name Mohammed?
Piece of crap dead. Obviously a muzzy. Ramashitadan ending soon. Going out in a blaze of glory.
The thing in London, took them all of 5 seconds to say that it’s not terror (in other words, not a muzzy).
Mohammed E. Coyote?
The man was known by police but they still can’t release his name to the public? Something’s rotten in Denmark.
Known and allowed to stay.
Another “pieceful” Ramadan this year.
colonel extra crispy
Car bull of explosives, but no injuries?
When they look at ALL of the lists, of course he was “known” - and they’ll use that fact to claim they are succeeding since at least “he was on a list”. It’s a good bet he was also on a list of protected groups or individuals or addresses - but they won’t admit that.
Lists of people who can’t fly.
Lists of “potential terrorists”.
Lists of people whose relatives said they may be terrorists.
Lists of people who’ve gone to terrorism training.
Lists of people who are afraid of certain people on the other lists.
Lists of people the police cannot target for fear of complaints or law suits.
Lists of lists.
And politicians around the world wanting to expand their ability to put more people on more lists.
And big data analytics that can identify an individual who will commit a terrorist act (along with 100,000 other non-threats to add to the lists while missing another 1000 potential terrorists)
And politicians around the world who want to limit members of a certain group from the lists.
And politicians who want to restrict more rights of EVERYONE on those lists - without due process.
And politicians who don’t want to allow anyone to be taken off the lists or in many cases to know they are on the lists and certainly not let the public know any groups that have a higher than average representation on those lists.
And politicians who won’t allow those of a certain “minority” who are on the list to be treated differently than everyone else on the lists.
We’re lost in a list bureaucracy controlled by politicians. If law enforcement could make their own small list of individuals and list of “characteristics of terrorists” and deal with the people on those lists in a sensible (and legal) way, we wouldn’t have nearly as many problems. And I bet he would have been “known” in the small lists too. But it would be Islamophobic to use the small lists to stop him.
No name. No national origin. No description. Yup. Raghead.
“It appears that he is lighting the fuse. We better keep an eye on this one!”
With all the identity info that was not given,I guess we can easily read between the lines.
“The man was known by police and was under surveillance”
The “surveillance” apparently did’t work so well. Why didn’t you boot his sorry rear end back to Krapistan instead of letting this happen? Afraid it might hurt the feelings of this suicidal/homocidal mohammedan if you exported him?
