From The Muslim Issue
An ISIS fanatic is dead after Canada’s national police force thwarted an alleged suicide bomb plot in Ontario.
Aaron Driver, 23, had planned to carry out a suicide bombing mission in a public area during rush-hour but was killed during a confrontation with police in a house in Strathroy, a senior police official said on Wednesday night.
He was shot by police in a dramatic raid after he detonated an explosive device, injuring himself and one other, CBC News reports. He reportedly had another device which he was going to detonate.
Driver, who was originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, was arrested last year for openly supporting Islamic State on social media.
He was not charged with a crime, but in February, he was placed on a peace bond, a court order that restricted his movement, required that he stay off social media and computers and not associate with any terrorist organization, including ISIS.
Glad that the Agencies got him before he was able to set his bomb off and had killed many more innocent people.
Having him dead means that we won’t have to hear his sorry complaints nor feed, clothe, give him free medical care, while he is in prison.
Sorry for his family though. Driver lost his mother at age 7 and his father said that the boy just seemed to shut down emotionally. They couldn’t reach him. Sad that it ended like this but he made a choice of his own free will.
One would think that being under restrictions and having a GPS anklet attached would have deterred him. This boy probably needed grief counselling after his mom died.
Supposedly, reported by the CBC, the FBI saw a video he made and alerted Canadian authorities thou the FBI didn’t know who the fella was or where he was going to carry out his jihad. I don’t believe this to be true. CBC is notorious for getting things wrong…he was under surveillance, had restrictions imposed on him…so all the Canadian authorities would have known about him as they share information.
The Anti-terrorism Act that we have in Canada allowed the Authorities to do this even though he had not been charged with any criminal activity. Driver had posted on social media sites about his love for ISIS and had called out for them to attack here in Canada. This is what got him into trouble in the first place and why he under restrictions.
