With all of the emphasis lately on keeping the children safe from violence, you would think that ANY attacks on children would be front page news, right?? Not so much, if it doesn’t fit the MSM’s narrative and/or agenda.
In a recent Fox News article, we learned that a 17 year old boy went to a 13th birthday party sleepover, and killed 1 child and brutally stabbed several others. We also learned that this 17 year old murderer, Corey Johnson, watched Jihadi videos the night previous to the stabbings, and read the Quran for “courage.”
A Florida teenager — who had previously been investigated for “alleged violent tendencies” — watched jihadist videos and read the Koran “to give him courage” before stabbing a 13-year-old boy to death and seriously injuring two others at a birthday sleepover Monday, cops said.
Corey Johnson, 17, was charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder after police said he confessed to the assault at the 13th birthday sleepover party at a BallenIsles Country Club home, the Palm Beach Post reported.
Jupiter Police, Palm Beach County School District police and the FBI previously received “intelligence gathering” on Johnson that prompted an investigation into his “alleged violent tendencies,” the Palm Beach Post reported.
Johnson reportedly told police he woke up at 4 a.m. Monday at Kyle Bancroft’s home and had an urge to kill Kyle’s mother, Elaine Simon; Kyle’s brother, 13-year-old Dane Bancroft; and Dane’s friend, 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra. The three victims were each asleep at the time, the Post reported.
“In his statement, Johnson advised he stabbed the victims because of his Muslim faith,” the affidavit stated.
Johnson and Kyle Bancroft allegedly watched violent jihadist videos the night before the 17-year-old carried out the deadly stabbing. Using a knife he brought to the home, Johnson stabbed Sierra multiple times before slitting his throat.
Simon, apparently hearing Sierra moaning in pain, began walking upstairs around 6 a.m. when Johnson allegedly lunged at her. Police say he stabbed her at least a dozen times before she fell down the stairs. Dane was stabbed 32 times while attempting to help his mother, according to the Palm Beach Post.
“He’s a hero,” the boy’s father said during a phone interview with the Post. “He saved his mom.”
Sierra was pronounced dead at the scene. Simon and Dane were taken to the hospital, where Simon remains in good condition as of Tuesday.
HORRIBLE, right?? To think that an innocent 13 year old child’s’ birthday sleepover could turn into a bloody nightmare, all because a teenager watched Jihadi videos and read the Quran is SHOCKING! It’s appalling!! Why didn’t we hear about this all day long on all of the major news channels??
My guess is because it didn’t hit all of the necessary trigger points for the MSM to report it…. and they certainly can’t report on anything that would put a negative light on the Muslim faith, either. Also, it didn’t have anything to do with guns, or a school.
But HANG ON – there was a recent ISIS inspired event AT A SCHOOL in Utah that you didn’t hear about either! NBC News did put an article online, but the widespread TV coverage never happened. As the NBC article states,
ST. GEORGE, Utah — A teenage student at a southern Utah high school has been charged with bringing a homemade bomb to the school that was discovered in a backpack emitting smoke and prompted an evacuation, police said Tuesday.
The boy was arrested Monday night after Pine View High School in the city of St. George was evacuated for two hours that afternoon while the FBI and a bomb squad investigated. Police declined to identify the arrested teen or give his age.
Authorities said additional charges also are pending against the teen as a suspect in the raising of the Islamic State group’s flag on a pole at another Utah high school last month just after the Florida mass school shooting that was followed by numerous other threats to schools around the U.S.
No one was hurt, no damage was reported and the school reopened Tuesday morning for classes. Police did not describe the homemade bomb in detail but said it “had the potential to cause significant injury or death.”
“Based on our investigation we can confirm this was a failed attempt to detonate a homemade explosive at the school. It was also determined that the male had been researching information and expressing interest in ISIS and promoting the organization,” police said.
Police in the city of Hurricane about a half-hour drive from St. George said Tuesday the teen who was arrested is also suspected of raising an Islamic State group flag in February at Hurricane High School. That happened on Feb. 15, a day after a mass shooting at a school in Florida. Authorities initially thought the graffiti and flag at the school were pranks.
“I think it is a shock to all of us that something like this has happened in one of our schools,” he said.
In the case at Hurricane High School, the U.S. flag was found on the ground and slashed with a flag with Arabic letters waving from the flagpole.
In case anyone is interested, the graffiti on the high school read, “ISIS IS COMING” – in big giant red letters.
What is shocking to me, is how YOUNG these Islamic-inspired attackers are. We have been led to believe, that most Islamic attackers were adults. Misguided adults, but still adults. That certainly didn’t fit the profile of the Boston bombers, but in that instance even the younger Tsarnaev brother was 19 years old. Not exactly all grown up, but still an adult.
This new trend of younger Islamic-inspired attacks against children, while being children themselves, is REALLY troubling. Young minds are very impressionable, and quite easily swayed… but to warp those young minds into carrying out attacks and/or killings – is absolutely horrific. I sincerely hope it is not a trend that continues.
