As I’m sure you already know, the Copenhagen police tracked the shootings suspect to where he lived, there was gunfire, he was killed. No interviews, again. No doubt that was his intention, again.
Police say they killed the man in the Norrebro district after he opened fire on them.
Police say video surveillance suggested the same man carried out both attacks. They do not believe any other people were involved.
Officials said the gunman fled by car. A black Volkswagen Polo was found abandoned a short distance away.
Police said the gunman then called a taxi to take him home.
They used information from the taxi driver to identify the address, near the railway station in Norrebro. They released photos showing the alleged attacker wearing a purple balaclava and thick puffer jacket.
He called a taxi. That’s not the smartest move I can think of.
Hours later, a gunman opened fire outside a synagogue in Krystalgade street, about 5km from the scene of the first attack, killing a Jewish man and wounding two police officers.
The victim was named as Dan Uzan, 37. He had been on security duty while a bat mitzvah ceremony was taking place inside the synagogue.
So he got a taxi home, had some lunch, watched the news to see his own exploits reported, put on a clean shirt, and went back out to shoot some more.
Early on Sunday, police said they had been keeping the Norrebro address under observation, waiting for the occupant to return.
When the man appeared, he saw the officers, pulled out a gun and opened fire, police said. They returned fire and shot him dead.
Then we get “analysis” from Malcolm Brabant.
It was always a case of not if but when. What’s surprising is that it has taken this long for Denmark to be scarred by a fatal terror attack.
In September it will be 10 years since the Jyllands Posten newspaper inflamed the Muslim world with the publication of 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, including one of him with a bomb in his turban.
Well that’s some god damn incompetent inaccurate “analysis” – it doesn’t even get the facts right, let alone the part about accusing Jyllands Posten of “inflaming” and the part about assuming all Muslims were “inflamed” as one. What a load of shit from a respected news source.
It wasn’t JP that “inflamed” a minority of Muslims, it was a group of Danish imams who did that. They did it on purpose with malice aforethought, months after the Motoons were published.
How nice, and how responsible, of the BBC to publish a factually untrue version of what happened, one that simply plays into precisely the misbegotten rage behind this campaign to murder all the cartoonists.
By “nice” I of course mean malevolent, and by “responsible” I mean how grotesquely reckless with the lives of people it should consider colleagues and allies.
