What you are about to see are the dramatic moments when a terrorist drives through the promenade, swerving left and right while mercilessly mowing down the crowd with a rented truck.
French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve stated that the terrorist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, 31, had radicalized rather quickly as he had had no record of making militant statements. Cazeneuve said, “We are now confronted with individuals that are sensitive to the message of ISIS and are committed to extremely violent actions without necessarily being trained by them.” ISIS supporters claimed a security source told the agency “the person who carried out the run-over in Nice, France, is one of the Islamic State soldiers and carried out the operation in response to calls to target nationals of the coalition which is fighting the Islamic State.”
Bouhlel was shot and killed by police after he crushed people with a 60 ton truck full of weapons. More than 80 died, 200 people were injured, and over 50 bystanders were in critical condition Friday. Authorities admit Bouhlel was known by the police due to history of allegations of threats, violence, and responsible for thefts over the past six years. Bouhlel was given a suspended six-month prison sentence this year after being convicted of violence with a weapon. Please tell me how this man had no reason to be on a watch list of any kind. Once again, government is inept to the task of protecting its own citizens. Move aside everyone! Uncontrolled multiculturalism coming through!
