…Agents of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrived at the residence of Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, who was named by police earlier in the day as the man who shot dead 10 people at the Boulder grocery store on Monday afternoon. The grocery store is about 30 miles from his Arvada home. …
In Facebook posts over the last two years, he complained about not having a girlfriend, ranted about President Trump and talked about his Islamic faith.
He also ranted online about ‘racist islamophobes’ hacking his phone.
‘Just curious what are the laws about phone privacy because I believe my old school (a west) was hacking my phone. Anyone know if I can do anything through the law?’ Alissa wrote on March 18, 2019, appearing to refer to Arvada West High School.
Another post dated for March 16, 2019, reads: ‘The Muslims at the #christchurch mosque were not the victims of a single shooter. They were the victims of the entire Islamophobia industry that vilified them.’
The post appears to reference the Christchurch, New Zealand, mosque shootings of 2019, when a single gunman killed 51 people after he opened fire on two separate mosques.
Maybe the Prestige Press giving that far-away incident colossal coverage for weeks and months was a little bit imprudent?
Alissa, a high school wrestler who has been described by his family as ‘mentally ill’, was born in Syria and moved to the US with his family when he was three.
According to a police report, obtained by the Daily Beast, in 2017, Alissa, then 17, ‘blacked out’ and violently assaulted a classmate who had called him a terrorist.
The report says that Alissa attacked another student, Alex Kimose, who he said had been bullying him.
Kimose was reportedly left with a ‘red and swollen’ face and his eye partially closed.
The report claims that Kimose was ‘crying and throwing up’ when his father arrived to the school and threatened to press charges.
Alissa said he could not take being bullied anymore so he ‘blacked out and rushed him’.
At the time, Alissa claimed that Kimose called him ‘racist names, called him a terrorist, and even took a video of him and put it on Snapchat’.
I should pitch this teen drama series to Netflix: a Muslim immigrant high school student is so exhausted by WASP bullies stereotyping him as an angry Arab and a “terrorist” that he heroically beats one up. I’ll call my show Trope.
And then in the crowd-pleasing season one finale, our hero murders ten white people at the supermarket. I’m not sure where Season Two goes, but I’ll think of something.
Alissa was charged with a misdemeanor for the attack, according to the Daily Beast. …
Police have not yet confirmed his motive. He has been charged with ten counts of murder.
The New York Times reported on Tuesday that he was known to the FBI because he was linked to another person who has been under investigation for something else. They didn’t give any more details.
That’s rather interesting.
His brother confirmed he was the shooter in an interview with The Daily Beast on Tuesday, saying he was ‘paranoid’ and ‘very antisocial’.
He insisted that the shooting was not politically-motivated and said:'[It was] not at all a political statement, it’s mental illness.
‘The guy used to get bullied a lot in high school, he was like an outgoing kid but after he went to high school and got bullied a lot, he started becoming anti-social,’ he said.
Presumably, all the misfits in Colorado high schools have heard of Columbine.
Another told The Denver Post that Alissa was ‘violent’, ‘scary to be around’ and once threatened to kill teammates on his wrestling team.
‘He was kind of scary to be around. His senior year, during the wrestle-offs to see who makes varsity, he actually lost his match and quit the team and yelled out in the wrestling room that he was, like, going to kill everybody.
‘Nobody believed him. We were just all kind of freaked out by it, but nobody did anything about it,’ Dayton Marvel said. Another, Angel Hernandez, recalled an incident where another wrestler teased him for losing and he just ‘started punching him’.
Alissa has been arrested at least once before including in 2017 when he punched someone who had made fun of his race.
He punched a racist!
Who needs a TV show? We’re talking Best Picture Oscar.
In a July 2019 Facebook post, he ranted: ‘Yeah if these racist Islamophobic people would stop hacking my phone and let me have a normal life I probably could.’
Hernandez, the fellow wrestler, added: ‘He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up.
‘It was a crazy deal. I just know he was a pretty cool kid until something made him mad, and then whatever made him mad, he went over the edge — way too far.
‘He was always talking about (how) people were looking at him and there was no one ever where he was pointing people out. We always thought he was messing around with us or something.’
His arrest affidavit, which was released on Tuesday morning, reveals that after shooting a man once in the grocery store parking lot, Alissa then approached him while he was still laying on the ground and shot him again, repeatedly.
Like I’ve been saying, there are two main types of mass shootings: the ones in which the shooters don’t try to get away because they’d rather stick around and finish off the wounded and the kind where the shooters leave a lot of wounded because they want to run away.
… He bought a Ruger AR- 556 pistol exactly a week ago on March 16, 2021.
That was the day of the Atlanta Massage Parlor massacre. Were they connected in his mind — such as he bought a gun to get vengeance on whites — or is the date just a coincidence? Did the enormous outpouring of racial hate for whites over the last week encourage him to turn his new gun to deadly ends?
… His 34-year-old brother Ali told the Beast he was ‘deeply disturbed’.
Others, including some who wrestled with him in high school, say he was a sore loser who sometimes threw tantrums if he lost.
‘One thing I can tell you is he didn’t take losing very well.
‘I remember that in wrestling.
‘He would throw his headgear, wouldn’t talk to the coaches when he lost.
‘If I remember correctly, even cussed out one of the coaches one time.’ …
Alissa’s brother told The Beast about an incident when he was in high school and feared he was going to be killed.
‘[He believed] he was being chased, someone is behind him, someone is looking for him.
‘When he was having lunch with my sister in a restaurant, he said, ‘People are in the parking lot, they are looking for me.’
‘She went out, and there was no one. We didn’t know what was going on in his head,’ he said.
It’s almost as if there more than a few crazymen in this country who don’t belong to the dreaded Straight White Male Menace we keep hearing about. Perhaps all the hate directed at the Regular-American community by the mainstream media plays a role in encouraging them to lash out at Regular-Americans?
As of press time, nothing had been yet heard from leaders of the Regular-American community.
By the way, doesn’t a criminal committing insane violence and then stripping off most of his clothes sound like he was on angel dust, a drug that encourages both ridiculous violence and overheating?
