Monday's HOT MIC
We already knew that one of the London Bridge terrorists was a "known wolf," as PJ Media's Patrick Poole reported yesterday.
How known was this known wolf? According to the latest reports, the terrorist was actually featured in a British documentary called "The Jihadi Next Door" praying to an ISIS flag.
The attacker, whom police have requested not be named apart from his nickname ‘Abz’, appeared to pray to a black flag associated with Islamist groups in a London park in a Channel 4 documentary about the behaviour and motivations of British extremists.
Abz had been reported to police at least twice according to reports.
The terrorist had been radicalised watching extremist videos online, he said, adding: “We spoke about a particular attack that happened and like most radicals he had a justification for anything and everything and that day I realised I needed to contact the authorities.”
However, the attacker was not arrested and no further action taken, he says. “I did my bit, I know a lot of other people did their bit, but the authorities did not do their bit,” he said.
A scene in The Jihadis Next Door shows a group of extremists, one of whom is believed to be 'Abz', appearing to pray to the flag as it is unfurled in a London park.
The cautionary advice, "if you see something, say something," doesn't amount to a hill of beans if authorities keep ignoring the information concerned citizens give them.
