A “possible motive.”
Yes, it could be any number of other things. If the establishment media and witless French authorities get really lucky, they’ll discover that Ziyed Ben Belgacem supported Trump.
“‘I shot the police’: Chilling text message Paris Orly airport attacker sent to family after shooting officer,” by Chris Kitching, Mirror, March 18, 2017 (thanks to David):
A “radicalised Muslim” shot dead at Paris’ Orly airport sent a chilling text message to family after shooting a police officer in the face.
The man, identified by French media as Ziyed Ben Belgacem, told his brother and father moments after the attack on the officer: “I shot the police”.
Less than two hours later he was shot dead after trying to steal an automatic rifle from a female soldier on patrol at the airport south of Paris.
Police later detained the man’s brother and father, and raided the man’s home in Garges-les-Gonesse, a Paris suburb.
The news station stated that the detention of the brother and father, who presented themselves to a police station, was “standard procedure” during such an investigation.
A large security perimeter was set up as police raided the suspect’s home.
French officials revealed the man was on a terror watch list and had been known to police and intelligence services for months.
Police sources told Reuters he was a “radicalised Muslim known to intelligence services”.
