The identity of the man responsible for driving a truck into a crowded storefront in Stockholm, Sweden, has been released.
Not surprisingly, the man was a radical Islamist, an ISIS supporter, and he had already been scheduled for deportation by Swedish officials.
Freedom Daily reports:
Swedish police revealed Sunday the Uzbekistan citizen suspected of driving a stolen lorry into crowds killing four on Friday was a rejected asylum seeker who was wanted for deportation.
The 39-year-old man was due to be expelled from Sweden, reports the country’s best-selling newspaper AftonBladet. Police commander Jonas Hysing told the paper “we do not know where they are, so we can not enforce expulsion”, speaking of the many migrants who should be deported from the country but the government keeps no records of their whereabouts.
The officer also confirmed police were aware that the suspect had expressed an interest and sympathy for the Islamic State online.
One of those identified as having died in the attack was a British citizen. Another was Belgian, and two more were Swedish citizens. No identities other than nationalities have yet been made public.
In the end, his attack killed 4 and injured another 15.
What we want to know, is why the Swedish government didn’t deport this individual sooner. If someone is knowingly praising ISIS and talking about violence against your people, you must protect the interests of your country and have that individual removed as quickly as possible, no exceptions.
