Another one of those Lone Wolf attacks that has absolutely nothing to do with Islam.
A reclusive student shot dead by police after stabbing four people in a California university campus attack ‘had far greater intentions to do damage’, Merced County Sheriff said Wednesday.
Faisal Mohammad, a freshman who majored in computer science and engineering at the University of California was carrying highly flammable petroleum jelly, ziptie handcuffs, night vision goggles, duct tape and a hammer in his backpack when he was shot in the back by cops.
In reference to the petroleum jelly, Sheriff Vern Warnke said: 'He had poor man's C4' - C4 being the dense, putty-like explosive used widely by the military and demolition teams.
Moments before he had 'smiled' as he used a 10-inch hunting knife to stab two students, a campus construction worker and a female teacher in a terrifying attack that was praised by an Isis-linked Twitter account.
However police have insisted his attacked were based on 'personal animosities' and a 'vendetta', not a political agenda.
And they know that because ...
The attack drew praise Thursday from a Twitter account associated with the Islamic State, Fox News reported.'May Allah accept him,' read the tweet in Arabic just minutes after Mohammad's name was divulged by campus authorities.
.... the impeccably multicultural college administration moved to rule out a political motive on Wednesday.
UC Merced Chancellor Dorthy Leland said: 'At this point, it would be irresponsible to draw such conclusions based solely on the ethnicity of the suspect.
'At this point in time, the preliminary evidence suggests that freshman computer science and engineering student Faisal Mohammad of Santa Clara appears to have been motivated by personal animosities, not a political agenda.'
So he had personal animosities against four random students, a teacher and a construction worker. I believe that ... I'll believe anything.
