The jihadi’s name is Abdul-Latif Ketchman, a convert, but you will find none of that in news reports. News headlines only refer to his Christian name. A commenter exposed his Facebook page and his actual name. Abdul-Latif came at police with a knife and sword over his head.
Telling victims to bow down before his god, etc. But no connection made by local media. Courts wonder if he is even competent? From what does he suffer? That now worldwide mental affliction — piety in Islam. The defendant says he is competent…he’s just following the Quran..
