Nice, France terror attacker Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel reportedly told police ‘I’m delivering ice cream’ when questioned just hours before the massacre. Reports are saying that Mohamed was parked on the Promenade des Anglais, the street of the celebration in Nice, for up to 9 hours before he decided to drive at nearly 40 mph through the crowd. Considering the French police have found weapons and grenades in the terrorist’s truck, I think it’s safe to say that he had no intent to deliver ice cream to the crowds. Instead, he delivered yet another terrorist attack inspired by radical Islam.
Officers who questioned Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel prior to his killing spree apparently believed that he was indeed just sitting his truck for hours, waiting to deliver tons of ice cream to waiting crowd. I have to wonder, given the politically correct nature of France, if the police perhaps didn’t want to be accused as “racists or bigots” for further searching someone named Mohamed who was also an immigrant. Similar to the attacks in San Bernardino, California, neighbors of the Muslim couple didn’t want to report suspicious activities, before they went on their killing spree, because they, “didn’t want to appear like they were racially profiling.”
How many more attacks could be prevented if people stopped worrying about being called racist and starting worrying about saving lives. Political correctness is literally killing us.
Officers have since raided the home of Mohamed, the father-of-three, described as a ‘drug-taking wife beater who never went to Mosque’ by his wife’s cousin. Although apparently neither his father, nor his wife’s cousin, thought his drug use or wife beating tendencies was necessary to report to police or to warn them of his erratic behavior.
Perhaps he never went to the Mosque, but he was certainly inspired by Islam in some measure, as ISIS has claimed responsibility for this attack, and Mohamed was heard yelling “Allah Akbar” during his rampage, which is eerily similar to previous radical Islamic attacks.
The Mirror UK reports:
Walid Hamou said Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, who, killed 84 people was in the process of divorcing his wife, who Hamou claimed he abused.
The cousin of the man who brought death and carnage to Nice has labelled him as a bad Muslim who drank alcohol, ate pork and took drugs.
Walid Hamou, a cousin of Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel ‘s wife Hajer Khalfallah said: “He was not a Muslim, he was a s***.”
Hamou told the Mailonline that driver of the truck who killed 84 people was in the process of divorcing his wife, who Hamou claimed he abused, and had three children with.
He said: “He beat his wife, my cousin, he was a nasty piece of work.”
Bouhlel’s wife was taken into protective custody by police this morning, Hamou confirmed saying:”My cousin is with the police.
They took her away at about 11am this morning, for her own protection.
She is at the police station now giving a statement.”
Bouhlel was named by police as the terrorist who drove a lorry for more than a mile through crowds of people celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city.
The attack left a trail of devastation, killing at least 84 people including 10 children, on the Promenade des Anglais.
After crushing scores of people with the lorry, the driver then got out and opened fire on the terrified revellers trying to flee.
Earlier today it emerged that Bouhlel, who had been known to the French police since January, had been on their radar for six months for.
And even just hours before the atrocity unfolded, the 31-year-old was stopped by cops in the 25 tonne truck that would go on to kill at 84 people.
But he reportedly told officers that he was delivering ice-cream to the area and was allowed to park on the waterfront for several hours.
Disturbing details about Bouhlel’s frame of mind in the hours leading to his murderous rampage on the Promenade des Anglais continue to emerge.
A neighbour of Bouhel’s claimed that on the night of the massacre he was drinking and proclaimed: “One day, you’ll hear about me.”
Another neighbour said: “He was not a fanatical muslim. He drank alcohol, he chased girls, he went to nightclubs.
“He did not go to the mosque. He was not religious at all.”
“He split up from his wife about two years ago. She is a lovely woman.”
Bouhlel is understood to have worked as a delivery driver, but is believed to have been fired recently after falling asleep at the wheel and crashing into four vehicles on a highway.
He is understood to have been separated from his wife for sometime before the murderous rampage.
Both the truck and his apartment are currently being examined by forensic teams for evidence.
