French Police Surround House of Suspect in Toulouse Shootings

French police surrounded a house in
Toulouse where a man suspected of killing four people at a
Jewish school and three soldiers is holed up, Interior Minister
Claude Gueant said.
The 24-year-old man wanted to avenge attacks on Palestinian
children, Gueant, whose ministry oversees law-enforcement
agencies, said on LCI television. The man claiming ties to Al
Qaeda spent time in the border regions of Afghanistan and
Pakistan, Le Parisien reported, citing a person close to
the investigation.

Two officers were injured when shots were exchanged with
the suspect at the house in the Cote Pavee residential
neighborhood of Toulouse, Sky News reported. Police asked the
suspect’s mother to negotiate with him, but she “said she has
little influence over him,” Gueant said.
The school killings were the deadliest attacks on a Jewish
target in France since 1982. The spree left a 17-year-old Jewish
student seriously injured and a black soldier in a coma. The
same weapon was used in all the attacks, President Nicolas Sarkozy said March 19. All the major candidates in France’s
presidential election suspended their campaigns.
In the March 19 school shootings, a teacher and his two
children, ages three and six, and the eight-year-old daughter of
the school’s director were killed. The soldiers were killed
March 11 in Toulouse and on March 15 in Montauban, 30 miles
away. In all three attacks, the helmeted attacker arrived and
left on the same stolen scooter.
Police also carried out searches in other parts of the
southwestern French city, LCI reported, citing police sources.
The suspect’s brother was arrested, Sky News reported, citing
local officials.

  • That guy was really super dumb. He contacted his first victim via internet (we know how anonymous we are on the internet), uses the same scooter in the same area, and from a commentary posted earlier it seems he went straight to the Yamaha concessioner to demolish the tracker of his scooter. Duuuuuuuuuuuuumb.

  • 10:05: The investigators seized a weapon which formally makes the bond between the three slaughters.

    10:00: According to Claude Guéant, the suspect required " means of communication with the police". " These means of communication, were exchanged against a Colt 45 that he threw by the window". " He threw that weapon by the window, but he has other guns: a kalachnikov, a small machine-gun Uzi and also several pistols.

  • He's a piece of shit whoever he is, but I wouldn't be surprised if he was a Muslim. Or a nazi. Muslim is more likely.

    I'd let some kids and the families of the victims kill him nice and slow.

  • the whole story is fishy. The guy was under high surveillance by French intelligence due to his dangerous profile.
    He got many war weapons, guns and riffle with him and in his car.
    The guy was suspected from the first casualty.
    However, after all these suspicions, he remained free until he killed again.
    (As a reminder, Adlene Hicheur is being held and detained in high security prison for almost 3 years without trial just because he exchanged some posts in Islamic forums over the net.)

    "The man has said he would do so "in the afternoon," Gueant told broadcaster BFM on Wednesday."

  • Where's the frigging video? What's up with this story? It's huge! Where the fuck is the media? Why are we getting only pictures? I smell a rat! A really big one! This story is not adding up. So far, ZERO proof has been presented to the public. No victim video. No crime scene video. And, NO BLOOD! What's up with that? It's a major story and ZERO facts to back it up! BULLSHIT!!!!

  • The payback is going to be a bitch. Jews and Mulsims seem to agree, based on recent prisoner exchanges, that a Jewish life is worth well more than 100 times a Muslim's life. So when the "zionist entity" strikes back, I would not want to be anywhere near a Muslim school.

  • If he had only shot the North African soldiers this would not even be on LL.

    Throw Jews into the equation and you have international news.

    Watch and wonder how Jewish spin controls our everyday media experience.
