Not So Random: Here’s What Paris Terrorist Asked His Victims Before He Shot Them Dead
Amedy Coulibaly, the gunman killed by police earlier this month after seizing a Jewish supermarket in Paris, told BFMTV station he had “co-ordinated” with the Charlie Hebdo killers and was a member of ISIS.
French officials now say Coulibaly taped his murderous rampage at the French Kosher grocer with a chest-mounted Go-Pro camera.
What a sick bastard.
Barack Obama said the shooting victims were just a “random bunch of folks” shot “in a deli.”
But now we know that Coulibaly asked his Jewish victims their name and origin before he shot them dead in the Kosher deli.
The BBC reported:
Details have emerged of footage filmed by Paris gunman Amedy Coulibaly during a bloody rampage inside a Jewish supermarket, a French website says.
He delivers an anti-Semitic rant and shouts “Stand up or I’ll kill you” at hostages, according to a transcript obtained by Le Nouvel Observateur.
During the seven-minute video he shoots dead three of his four victims.
Investigators are examining seven minutes 45 seconds of footage apparently filmed by Coulibaly on a GoPro camera worn during the siege, according to reports.
It shows him shouting “Nobody move”, before grabbing hold of a customer, asking his name, and then shooting him dead.
He asks another man what origin he is. And when the hostage replies “Jewish”, he kills him too.
“So you know why I am here then. Allahu Akbar,” he shouts, according to Le Nouvel Observateur’s report. He is also heard making anti-Semitic remarks when one woman tries to tell him that his hostages have done nothing wrong.
A separate video that emerged after he was shot dead by police apparently showed him pledging his allegiance to the Islamic State militant group, and claiming the attacks were “retribution”.
